      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 .

Tony Dean Passes Away..

Recommended Posts

Wow. I always enjoyed his shows... he brought the program to your living room with his compassion and ability to speak like and to the average sportsman. He always seemed so thankful for the opportunity to be out there. He will be missed.

I had a chance to meet Tony Dean two years ago in South Dakota while on a duck and pheasant hunting trip. I saw him sitting in the small lodge where we were staying drinking coffee and walked up and introduced myself. He could not have been more of a gentlemen. He took the time to give my friends and I information on where to hunt, what techniques, etc. He checked up on us each day of our trip to see how it was going and to offer more advice and just good fellowship. He spoke about conservation and how Minnesota had ruined all its duck marshes and how South Dakota was heading down the same path. He really cared about the state of the land and when he spoke he really inspired you. I've met some other TV host and did not come away with the same impression Tony gave me and my friends. It was by the way not one of those high class lodges but just a simple state park lodge and we are just a group of regular guys who save and scrimp to go on such trips. In fact, we were camping out at this same park on this trip to save money. The world is a better place because of Tony Dean's life and legacy.

I always liked his show. Especially how low buck it seemed. No hype or other garbage just plain good people and the great outdoors.

Just heard one of his Obama adds on the way back from up North this weekend. Gotta say that was a shock coming from him.

He'll be missed.

He was a class act and I don't think we will see the likes of him again. Always appreciated his views on conservation and his willingness to stand up for what he believed in.

I am not one to be impressed easily, but I had exchanged letters with Tony. I heard his Obama ads while hunting out west and when I got home I went to e-mail him to say I was impressed with his decision to support Obama; not that it was right or wrong, just couragous to do considering. I went to his HSOforum and seen the news of his death, what a kick in the nuts. I don't think there is anyone out there that can replace him and his convictions. Hopefully there are a million or so of us that can do something to partially fill the gap left by one man. Webster's dictionary will have Tony's picture along side the definiton of "CLASS"

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
