      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 .

I guess I'll need to fire up my black helicopter and fly up to greenbush to kidnap more cougars and drop them in the vicinity of that fan to kill it once and for all. grin

While I'm at it, I'll tip the rotors to blow more snow down that way.

I got out Tuesday night after I put the little one to bed, ripped it right down the street to the Invergrove Hieghts trails. Put on 20 miles, the new Guns and Roses album blasting on my ipod, sled started and ran good, that's just good clean fun right there.

The process for me is the same every year, I stare at my sled in storage all summer and think "I should just sell it, I don't ride it that much, it's an expensive hobby...etc etc" then the first time I get it out and hit that throtle I think "ohhhh...right, that's why I got into snowmobiling, I'm never selling this thing!"

I got out yesturday on the lake. I had been waiting to get to the area with the big slabs, and it was fun. Forgot to use the airtight minnow bucket though--a little damp in the trap. Best of both worlds, sledding and fishing.

My buddy and I spent yesterday pulling out sleds from storage. We did the once over and then headed for the nearest east/west ditch. WOW! I forgot how much fun it is to plow through the fluffy fresh stuff!! cool

    • I have to stop procrastinating, ice will be here before I know it! I made a little progress lately, I painted the inside, installed cedar accessory boards and thermostat and hopefully by this weekend have the rubber flooring down. I also ordered the termination cap for the furnace, should be seeing that in the next week or so. I also have a custom cushion being built to fit my bench seating. Got a question on rattle reels, I am looking at the all aluminum ultimate  rattle reels. Anybody use them? They seem a little spendy but not too concerned about the price, looking to see if there are any reviews out there. If those don’t seem to fit your need, what other brands have u used and feedback on them would be nice also. I will take some pics this weekend for a quick update.  
    • Sport's Show is a great place. I purchased the grey Frabil for under $200.00 But that was 5 years ago
    • You mean like Chicago is doing with Hossa?  Great idea...think of the space that would clear up!
    • Six of us shot 10 on public land Saturday near Worthington.  Good day until the wind really kicked up at the end of the day.
    • I have trail camp pics of some yearlings sparring.
    • yea but dave we will never really know now will we!!!!!!!! woulda shoulda......... its  W for da good guys and  L fer dem other ones!!!!!!!!!
    • Parise Update:    Zach Parise, battling an undisclosed injury, was in a red jersey and skating on a line with Joel Eriksson Ekand Eric Staal. The goal for the past several days was for him to make his season debut this weekend. But early in practice, Parise left the ice and did not return. "I talked briefly with Chuck, but he said it was a setback. I don't know how much of a setback or anything," Boudreau said. "I know I talked to him before practice and he felt great. That's why he was in a red color and was ready to go. The next thing I know, somebody told me he went off. I don't know why he went off. Obviously, something didn't feel right."   My feelings is that he needs to be put on the LTIL and get 100%.
