      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 .

Hey Browning24,

I don't know about Terry but I'm from Billings and was in Hysham,MT today and there is no white stuff out here yet. Weather today was in the high 40's with little to no wind and overcast with spots of sun. The forecast is looking to be the same all week with a chance of rain here and there no snow in the outlook yet. So the ground is still brown out here. That cold front you saw this weekend in MN was here last week but no snow was dumped here except in the higher elevations of the Rockies.

Good luck on your hunt!

Chris

Sure thing! What date are you traveling out? I will keep you posted up until that date. Have you hunted out here before?

One word for the wise is if the road sign says "Impassable if wet or snow covered" beleive it! Some of the dirt roads out here can be a challenge if you don't have super aggresive mud tires and a winch. Plus the ranchers get p*ssed if you tear up the roads to thier cattle ranges.

Later,

Chris

Hey Browning,

Still no white stuff on the ground. Forcast for the week is warm with records being set tomorrow with temps near 70. The rest of the week is high temps from the upper 40's to 50's with a chance of rain here and there. Bring lots of water for hiking!

The mules are becoming active all day now. Saw a bunch today and they are all chasing does in the wide open fields in the middle of the day.

Later,

Chris

Hey Browning,

They have updated the forcast out here today it was warm but looks like it will be Cooling down for the rest of the week.

Good luck on your hunt! There are plenty of does across the whole state that I have seen so far. The does seem to be keying in on staying in the bottom of coulees with water in them or near streams, but I have also seen them grazing in the wide open areas. The mules look like they use the coulees, and irrigation ditches to travel from place to place. Be stealthy when coming up on the coulees and you should be alright. I stopped counting the deer that I have bumped out upland hunting there are so many.

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
