      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

If you could play with any other 9, who would they be?

Recommended Posts

You can pick whoever you want for whatever reason, here are my choices, in no particular order:

Steve Nash-shares the ball and pushes the tempo better than any other.

Kevin Garnett-leader, funny guy for his quotes and trash talk, always plays hardest and leads by example, tough

Shawn Marion-does what it takes to win, stat stuffer...would be fun to see him running with Nash again

Allen Iverson-pound for pound toughest guy out there. shares the rock, scores at will, funny to watch when he's out to show somebody up, his posse and ghetto 'street cred' attitude can be kind of funny to see

Magic Johnson-loves the game, fun to be around, shares the rock and gets flashy

Larry Bird-intense, won't let anyone beat him, guy that you want taking the last shot

Bob Lanier-stat stuffer, funny guy to talk to or be around, practical joker, always made his teammates better

David Robinson-just a machine to watch, great teammate and human being

Hakeem Olajuwon-just to watch the sweetness of all his moves, and the defense, the way I wish every 7 footer played

If I put this 9 plus me against your nine and you, even if you had LBJ and MJ, I think I would win on skillsets alone. I didn't give any really good reason for picking the team, I just think these guys would be the group that is the most fun to play with for a variety of reasons, with winning as a secondary function. Does that make any sense? There are just some guys that are fun to play with and some that are not.

Vlade Divac. His moves looked like carp and he was a smoker! He'd dive for a loose pack of Marlboros on the court.

    • Yep working on the farms is a huge help. I have cut wood, mowed yards, fixed fence, cut hay... Even just stopping out for a visit in the off season has been received gratefully. Guys that just show up, hunt and leave don't get permission again....
    • Helps if you go into the local cafes and start talking to the old farmers. In one trip I got access to 6 farms. Bring that old farmer a few fish fillets, a dressed pheasant, a couple grouse breasts, some plucked ducks, or some venison depending on what they like. Do this throughout the year and bingo you are hooked up. Word spreads and you gain new farms as well.    The farmers tell tell me they hate when people wait until the week before the season opens to ask for permission. I have helped pick rock, bale hay, or plow up  fields this also sets you apart from the people who just want to hunt.    No!
    • Hey today is the day to come win some prizes and say hi! See you there!
    • Drake mallards this afternoon - no suzys. More Goldie’s, commons and a couple hooded mergs.  Almost entirely drakes of all species.  Geese are getting stronger.
    • Some cold nights are retaining the snow and ice cover in the far north, but with no new snow in the last week, snowmobile trails have now closed in all but one county in the north where trails are listed as poor on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). The deep snow has allowed cross-country ski trails to remain open and in good to fair condition in several northern parks and forests.Northern parks and forests, Like Pattison State Park, still have good conditions for cross-country skiing. Photo credit: Gervase Thompson, DNRNorthwoods lakes still have over a foot of ice but anglers have mentioned some slush under the snow. Fishing has picked up a bit with anglers catching some crappies. Lake Wisconsin is still holding on to its ice, but barely. Looks like it will melt off any day now. Despite a Coast Guard ice breaker making it out of Sturgeon Bay through Green Bay ice conditions on the east shore have remained stable. Fishermen are still accessing the ice of Green Bay on foot off Door County. Fishing action has been good over the last week with most anglers still catching whitefish, some still taking limits. The Sawyer Harbor boat launch in the city of Sturgeon Bay, is now free of ice as of this week, and a few boat fishermen are already taking advantage in pursuit to trout, walleye and northern. .
