      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 .

lost blind ?

Recommended Posts

I purchased a ground blind from a guy I know, today. After getting it home and looking at it, I realilzed that it may have been forgotten or lost at a parking spot. I paid $25 for it but I think it is worth more.

If anyone lost/forgot one at a parking spot and can describe the blind and a item that was left inside it I will return it for what I paid for it.

If I guess right can I get the blind for half price? I bet it was a parking stub left in the blind.

Just giving you a little hassle if indeed it was found you are doing a good thing. Hans

No, I don't think it was swiped from somewhere but it may have been left behind by the owner and picked up by the guy I bought it from. When I opened the thing I found a drink container which leads me to think that someone had been using it. The place the guy hunts has parking spots. I am just guessing.

I thought that maybe he was gonna say when he opened it up a "20 inch box fan" came running out of it. I think that the last time that fan was seen it was in a parking lot. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

You don't mean the one that was missing a blade but had 2 stickers on it, do you? By the way, that post was written at a 3rd graders level, this is closer to Differential Equations.

Don't feel too bad. That particular 20" box fan has a long and storied past on the "Free Things Only" forum, and really has nothing to do with this blind.

I'm sorry Dusty, I commend you for trying to find the rightful owner. It just seems funny that there is no mention of a general area it was "found" in, and the fact that you bought a potentially hot item (it wasn't his to take and sell if he indeed found it in a parking lot) and are looking to sell it back to the original owner. Instead, you could get your buddy to buy it back from you and let him deal with it or just give it back to the original owner if he contacts you. I very well could be wrong, though. I have been before.

    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
    • Coulda stopped the story there. Already too much work!
    • It wasn't easy. I had to marry a Finn and be in good standing with MIL to get my foot in the door.   I then meet Matti Nykänen at a Pikkujoulu Party  when he noticed I had a new Nokia phone and asked to see it.  We talked for hours about our ski jumping days over a loaf of Pulla. Later the conversation turned to ice fishing and Nils Master.  His uncle was a sharpener in Finland and planned to come to the USA and sharpen. Said he could make a lot of money.   Turned out he wasn't authorized by Nils Master and his true intent was to smuggle brown bread in the US and in doing so lost his visa.  It was a huge embarrassment to his family and to Finland.   Finland needed a sharpener in the US but I was a Norwegian.   After some arm twisting by my MIL I was allowed to be trained but I had to sign a sworn document not to pass anything on to either Norway or the Russians. Even then I wasn't allowed to see how the blade was made, only how to sharpen and reshape a blade that needed reshaping.  Retire,  exercise and a Finnish Brown Bread is the key to a long life and you don't need to smuggle it. I order it online from New York and it keeps good for years.    
    • I drink Grain Belt and Schell's all the time. Buy Local!  
    • Wild playing very well in all facets of the game right now...fun to watch...Toronto is no slouch even without Matthews.
    • And if you went to Italy, they have all that stuff that is bitter.  It is a matter of taste for sure.   BTW, hops is (or was) added to beer as a preservative as well as a flavor.   Personally I don't care for that weird stuff, but do like an IPA on occasion, or a Grain Belt for old time's sake.   
    • Yes. And if you got to the southwest part of the country they have some of the best wine on the planet as well. I was introduced to German beer there in the 80's and it was a learning experience. Bars with room temp kegs and either Dunkel or Licht beer. They know how to do it right.
    • I haven't seen that happen in the collagen casings I have used but if it seems to be an issue maybe try vacuum sealing any left over casings until the next time.
