      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

My step-sisters husband has been waiting for a new kidney for a long time now, found out this morning that a match was found and he is in surgery as we speak. Otto has Alports disease and that causes kidneys to fail. I am excited for their family but also ask those of you that believe in prayer would pray for Otto as he is in surgery and for a great recovery.

Thanks,

Hope

Prayers to him and family. I lost my uncle in September. He was awaiting a Double Lung transplant. On top of the list for about 14 months. He had Cystic Fibrosis. I know what its like. Praying for a successful surgery and speedy recovery.

Sending out mucho prayers, for him and his family. I just found out an old friend is on dialysis for kidney failure. He is a diabetic so I don't think there will be any transplants. I have been signed up as a donor on my DL for the last 25 years, although now that I am a diabetic I don't know if they can use anything.

Here is an update, surgery went well and the kidney pinked up right away. There is still some bleeding which will hopefully stop soon. Urine output is a little low but will hopefully improve. Prayers should also go out to the donor family who lost a 7 year old boy yesterday but save many other lives with their donations. Thanks all.

Otto is not doing well he has pneumonia and is on dialysis and his kidney may be asleep or rejecting, he also has had to receive several units of blood. To say he is miserable is an understatement. One Dr. wanted to play the wait and see game while others want to do tests. Well the wait and see Dr. was told by my step sister that that is not an option, she is great when it comes to getting the best treatment for her husband. Thanks all for the prayers.

Otto is not good they had to remove the kidney. The sac around the kidney filled with blood and actually cracked the kidney. Since that surgey last night his heart rate has been too high and they have had to keep the breathing tube in and keep him sedated. Thay are trying to pull 10 pounds of fluid off him through dialysis and hope that will give the heart some relief. His pneumonia is a little better, so we have a tiny bit of good news. Thanks all for your care, concern and prayers.

Hope, I am so sorry Otto is not doing well. I went through a nightmare illness with my husband in 2003, I know how stressful this is for you and your step sister. Keep the faith, there are a lot of people pulling for Otto.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
    • Tip ups outside the house are fine because you can visually see them which means you are attending to those lines.  A line left down in your house while you go to a buddies house can't be seen. If you can't see them you can't attend to them when needed.  A CO also has no idea how long you were gone, were the lines unattended for 5 minutes or 5 hours?   If you have some sort of system set up so that you can monitor the lines remotely then you've entered a gray area and would probably be up to the CO's discretion.  You can email the DNR and ask but I'm guessing whether you get a ticket or not would be determined by which CO finds you and what kind of mood he's in that day.  If you did choose to take the ticket to court I'd think you'd have a reasonable case to present.  The judge would have to determine if being able to monitor your lines on a baby monitor satisfies the law. Personally I think it would but who knows what a judge or CO would think. 
    • Sounds like event was well attended all 3 days just over 28k total.   we went on Friday and had a great time participating in the bird dog parade. Scored some deals on some dog stuff and even got some nice freebies.   hope it makes it back to SD again. Next year is in Schaumburg Illinois so probably won’t attend. 
    • Battled the winds yesterday but fishing was excellent. Couldn’t find the big perch but managed to get a limit of eyes here in South Dakota   
    •   Winning the Daytona 500 is huge.   The only thing better, is winning it clean.   Move or be moved is fair.   But I could only imagine the shower of beer cans onto the track if roles had been reversed.      
    • Where did you get your subfloor? How is it holding up? 
    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck.
