      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 .

Wii Outdoor Games

Recommended Posts

It's official. The family is getting a Wii for Christmas (actually it's my wife that REALLY wants it). I need something to play after the kids are in bed. I've seen some bad reviews on the Rapala fishing game. Are any of the other Fishing/hunting games any good? I've seen a few in the Cabelas catalog, has anyone tried them?

I've seen a Wii hunting game at Fleet for pretty cheap. You should check out Wii Play. There's plenty to keep you interested. Santa is bringing my kid Ski, Music and another Points card. We didn't give up the N64 but he seems to get more fun out of the download versions that are among the few available. And, just sayin', don't give up on the old systems as there's plenty of long-term investment value there although you'll never get all you have into them.

We've also added the LAN adapter so that he can play worldwide on the Goreweb, which is like adding another level to the games you have or rent.

OK Gang,

I just picked up a Wii bundle on Black Friday. I got the system with 3 controller, 3 nunchucks and 3 games. Wii sports is OK, King of Clubs is not so hot, yet, and Mario Sluggers takes some getting used to. We have only been playing for a few hours.

Give me some suggestions on a fishing game. Let's hear some reviews of why you like or dislike the game you have or have played.

Also, what is up with this Wii points thing, how does that work. My 25 year old son is pretty computer savvy and he hooked our system up to our wireless network in our house so we can go on line to get things, I guess. Can you check your email and things like that from the big screen TV thru the Wii?

All suggestions are welcome as I am a newbie ( but I have already had bowling games of 200 plus several times!

Can't really tell you much about the points. Mario Kart is a great game, one of the most fun out there. I would get that. I would check out this link Wiiiiiiii for other game ideas and online codes from other users.

you should be able to check your email if you have the internet program. it just doesnt play videos and some other things, but i believe i could check my email. havent used it in about 8 mos. if you want a really cool game for multiple people, definitely look into super smash bros. brawl.it is fun for hours if you are playing with 2-4 players. good for all ages too.

Rapala tournament fishing is a decent wii fishing game. Its pretty fun to play and actually do the casting motion and set the hook on the fish instead of just pushing buttons. However, its hard to play that now when i got call of duty on the 360 sitting right next to it.

Wii Points work when you have the LAN adaptor hooked through your internet modem. There's a store where you can buy discontinued versions of games, or instance, maybe 10 earlier Mario games that worked with N64. The games play the same as the older versions and the graphics are the same, too, and not high-end like the new system provides. A 2,000-point card costs $20 and and old game costs 1,000 to 800 points. You choose them and download into the DH on your Wii. I'm not sure if you can back them up to the external cards, but there's a record of what you purchased so maybe you can get a second download if your system takes a powder.

    • What lens you use for the night sky pictures? I really like them.
    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. Stole a few ideas from some of you but hopefully no one gets too worked up over that. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out! Frame- 8X21' +4' V Valley Manufacturing galvanized hydraulic Walls/roof- 1x2" rectangular tubing Siding- Flat black aluminum held on with 3M adhesive tape Roof- 3/8" plywood covered with rubber membrane Floor- 3/4" marine grade plywood Insulation- Closed cell spray foam   One piece aluminum wheel wells.  1/4" cedar tongue and groove. At this point I was still undecided if I was going to stain it or not and sense I did end up staining it I should have just used pine. Looking back on it now it could have saved me a few bucks. The start of staining. I used Sherwin-Williams Pecan.
    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
    • Final 2 minutes of lastnight’s game was pretty exciting. I agree, it’s going to take several more games for the team to really come together. But winning those types of games will make it happen faster!
    • So late last ice fishing season I was looking at underwater camera's and thought I narrowed it down to either a Marcum VS825SD or the Aqua-Vu HD700i.   Now I see Aqua-vu has a new model out this year the HD7i Pro.   Does any know what the differences are between the HD700i and the HD7i Pro ?    Usually I don't like to buy first year products as I like to see them get all the bugs worked out first.
