      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.

    • Just looked up the yellow. Definitely not, no white on wings and way too yellow. And all the pictures of a cowbird on Google don't show a cowbird with the rusty colored ring on it's back.
    • Spending most of my time in Dallas these days due to my job.  Will be fishing the Otter County Area in a couple of weeks.  Can't wait!  Just wondering what you guys are seeing?  I am assuming the Bass are in and will be in their late summer patterns which to me means that you could find 'em anywhere.  One of the questions my friend had (I guess watching KVD in Elite Series and  Major League fishing -- I think his recent win on the Elite Series on St Lawrence River was mainly a drop shot) was jerk baits for this time of year.  Frankly, I use mostly jigs and plastics.  Watching KVD, I think I should give jerk baits more a try.
    •  It looks yellow in the bad picture but it's a very rusty medium brown. Definatly in the blackbird family though I think. I need a decent camera. Eye guy, you told me about a not too expensive digital camera with a good zoom lens didn't you? I don't think that's it. The ring on its back is the same rust color. 
    • Of course!  Yaller headed B bird, like the Duffster said.   https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Yellow-headed_Blackbird/id
    • Yellow headed blackbird?
    • It looks way to light brown to be a cowbird but I see nothing else in my bird book it could be??? I know this is a bad picture but it's the best I can do. The thing is so tame I can almost walk right up to it and it never goes away for long.
    • Thanks for the replies. I am going to get a box of 1 3/4 #5's and a box of 1 3/4 #6's and pattern them against what I have been shooting, Hope to get that done when I go up to mow my trails this fall, whenever I can free up some time to go. I will post some results.
    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair. 
    • Cullen comes back on a very cap friendly deal.  1yr 1mil.
    • Manky, I have used dog food with grease as a filler and it works great! No issue but you  don't want to add to much grease and make all the dog food to soggy.
