      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 .

well I didn't know were to post this but as I was sitting in school towards the end of first hour over the pus speaker we hear "building go into immediate lockdown mode" and come to find out there was some sort of prison escapee that was in the area and we had to sit and be quiet for over 30min and we might have to go into another one.

I'll keep to guys posted about the news that the school admin will be telling us.

Wow. Whenever I drive past that place it just amazes me that those guys still find ways to escape. I suppose most of them have plenty of time to think that over...let us know how it goes Jordyn.

yes sir.

I guess there was a guy walking in the

Baseball fields with a black ski

Mask on with something that looked a weapon in his hand I guess.

I don't know if it was a weapon or not. That's all the teachers told us..

makes a person wonder about our nations prison system.

A couple years ago I was in Colorado and there are signs warning drivers not to pick up hitch-hikers due to the number of prisons out there.

I'm all safe and sound.

There was just a guy walking in the baseball fields with a black ski mask that had something that looked like a weapon.

A community service guy saw it and called it in. I don't know I'd they found him or anythin but we are out of out the lockdown and he is not close to us anymore.

Thanks for asking if I'm ok and everything.

That's why I love this site!! People are always caring about our fellow HSO'ers and FM'ers!!

Thanks guys

This is what I dont get, ITS COLD OUT. Should I not wear a ski mask when it's cold out now for fear of getting arrested? Maybe instaed of jumping the gun right away they should have gotten off their lazy [PoorWordUsage] and went and asked the guy what he was doing. I'm not from the stillwaer area, obviously, but, I ask you jordyn, how far from the school are your fields? and approximately how far out was the guy. I ask this becuase there should be no reason for this if the guy was walking parallel to the school or within a certain distance, say 100ft or better.

Well the guy I guess walked through our parking lot. He was spotted going across our ball field which is maybe 100yards away.

The cops iniated the lock down so ya.

I think my teachers said something about the guy had a warrent out for being a se.x offender.

Well that's all I know..

Ha

well, being a sex offender is one thing, but you know how rumors get spread and blow up out of proportion. Glad everything is ok, just saying.

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
