      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 .

Catfish Caption Contest Week 7 Submit your Entries

Recommended Posts

Since the open water Catfish season is winding down, I thought I'd try something different to keep things active here.

I have a few small prizes that I can send out to each weekly winner.

The rules are simple, I will post a photo, and you will post the best caption you can come up with. Please submit only one entry.

On Wednesday, I will pick the top 5 and create a poll and everyone will get to vote on their favorite. Voting will be open until midnight on Sat.

Let's have some fun with this and please remember, this is a family site, so keep them clean, I will delete any captions that are inappropriate smile

Also, if anyone has a funny or "outtake" Catfish photo they would like to have me use, please send that to me via the email in my signature. I don't have very many to use, so I'm hoping to get several.

Week 1 Winner--> Crazyice

Week 2 Winner--> Capt Fireman

Week 3 Winner --> Deitz Dittrich

Week 4 Winner --> ezwalt

Week 5 Winner --> AceintheHole

Week 6 Winner --> Wildcatcreek

The photo for week 7 follows. Please submit your entries below.

Hey shack - That was great. That could be hard to beat. You have to be a fan of Teletubbies but the caption sure fits the picture. The names fit those two also - Dipsy and Laa-Laa. I think we should give them those Nicknames. All in Favor signify by saying "Eh-Oh - Teletubies love each other very much". laughlaugh

OK, is Darren (on the right) Dipsy or Laa-Laa? smile I am hoping Dipsy. Dipsy Dtro Darren. Triple D. It has a nice ring to it.

As Darren and Brian prepared to do battle at the "thriller on the River", they donned their team uniforms and posed for a quick photo. In a couple seconds they will enter the river and battle for the championship. The first man to emerge from the depths with any part of a catfish in his mouth will be crowned the champion. They have their mouth warmers snapped to help keep some dexterity in their lips before entering the chilly water and to hide any surgical alterations they've undergone since their last bought. The league is still considering banning these alterations in the spirit of the sport.....but until then it will continue to create some interesting grilles among the contestants.

WWG is still in rehab after dislocating his jaw trying to bring up the entire fish at last weeks quarterfinals. His artificial barbed teeth would not allow him to retreat after the initial bite. Hopefully we don't have any similar mishaps tonight. When asked about the incident WWG just simply stated "I was hungry".... The two finalists here tonight didn't get here by trying to bite off more than they can chew....this should be a match for the ages.

    • Looks like a 25 pound batch? Were you able to fit all of that in one batch, or split in two?
    • Zucker is the new Parise in style, types of goals, speed, etc. Only 4 diff forwards have scored in the last 27 periods (9 games) and Koivu has only 4 goals and ended last yr with only 1 in his last 23 games...and got a hefty extension. We should obliterate the Sabres tonight, bad team playing even worse lately.  The jury is still out on the Wild, very strange team...is it lack of talent, lack of effort, poor coaching, or what?  I still think Fletcher has us setup for failure and Boudreau is trying to make something out of nothing. Thoughts?
    • The salmon I have cooked turns out great, no searing required.    Likewise chicken breast.    Steaks get seared but the end result of the combination is superior to just grilling or pan frying.   At least you aren't making spurious allegations of food safety issues.   Howcome you so mad about sous vide?  Seems like a silly thing to be so upset about.  
    • HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and you do a mighty fine job at it too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Stan!  Links in a first post lately haven't been a promising sign, but I'll comment like you are a real person.  I think they have their place however I stay hooked up pretty much all the time and use mine in colder water.  Looks like your electric heaters for sale their don't operate well with water temps under 67 which I see throughout a good chunk of the year.  Thoughts, concerns or second post?
    • we always use gloves to handle the food leaving the smoker
    • Nua, I like to run and gun causing trouble without having to answer to a higher power!    Well but God.
    • I'm sorry but I guess i didn't really pay that much attention to the residue.  I usually use a set of tongues to handle them so i really cant say.  The one thing i may do different next time is poke holes in the casings.  I didn't do that on this batch and i did get a bit of fat build up under the casing.  Not horrible but something worth considering on the next go around.
