      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 .

Timmy,

I will get with you to find out what we want to do. I think I will pull the trigger on what we talked about and I will discuss another option i might ask of you. We'll see. Also I will have that wed-sun off to pre-fish and just relax a bit. I'll get the studs on the quad tires. No walking for these two smile

Talk to you soon<

Steve

Steve - You plan on going that early hmmm. Maybe with that military discount a couple extra days pre-fishing doesn't sound bad by me. Talked to Shawn and it sounds like they have a whale of a fishery there.

Kyle and I had a good set-up last year fished hard when we got there and took a day off to game plan and par take in the Alexandria night life. It's a good formula. These events are always about the three F's., Fun, Friends and Fish.

I returned calls after snowblowing and I couldn't remember if I talked to you today, hhmmm. confused

Talked to Shawn tday and I think will have some fun helping him on our end getting more Yorker's to attend. I'm looking forward to it.. cool

Ok,I'm a little lost and have been out of it for awhile but where is this taking place? It sounds good and If I can get a partner I would love to go. I got a buddy who's just getting into it and he's in the market for a flasher and trap. He has the wheeler already so we are good there.

Rick's pulling the trigger on a Trap Guide that's a year old and in GREAT condition so he and his little one can get in the fun.

No problem Steve. There should be something on the fishy spot for reservations. I think 95% of the guys will be staying at the same hotel for the rules meeting I guess it's about 20 min. from the lake, not to bad. Try to get a first floor room nearest and exit to the parking area so we don't have to take the elevator and such to haul gear in/out.

You can try the contact link on the main page and email them your issue and they should have away to resolve it. I checked the FAQQ section and couldn't see any info on how to do it. Try that Albert...

Tim, Wanted to shoot the breeze alittle more at the show but every time I came around you were really busy with customers, I didn't want to bother you. By the way hows that van doing? Hope we all can get together this year like old times, with some good food and company.

Splitshots - We are in the preliminaries of having an event for the crew centrally located, a [PoorWordUsage] session with good food and friends and a little fishing as well. It's long overdue with our growth over the last few years. Been a while since I was called the apron boy laugh Were still looking for a newer used as well.

Van is holding it's own now, close to having all the air out of it, want to drive it some more before I bleed it again, at least it's not spiking. Been a while since I wa the apron boy laugh Were still looking for a newer used as well. Were still looking for a newer used as well. Leaning towards a Town and Country sick

    • A few of our guys hover around the deer with ice cream buckets or freezer bags to get every heart they can get.  I usually make them into jerky.
    • I've done that plenty in the past and find that stuff generally brings a pretty high price. Truth be told I purchased a grocery store/ butcher shop about 18 years ago when it closed. I got some of the equipment but lots of it was sold for good money and secondly the commercial stuff is usually too big and have bigger motors than I care to run as a hobby.  The commercial bandsaws are usually 3-10 hp and some are 3 phase. 
    • Del's gonna tell ya that spreads CWD......
    • Here's my recipe that I've used for many, many years with lots of complements.  1) Shoot Deer. 2) Pull guts and inners out. 3) Leave pile on forest floor to chill until some varmint comes by to enjoy it. They love it every time! 
    • The game was won but 2 missed go ahead field goals in a needed game. Not league leading stuff!
    • I would find an auction of an old meat market or grocery store. You would probably get an old but good quality stainless steel saw for a good price.
    •     Cripe-o-rama!  Now THERE's some real beef cookery!!!  And just ignore dat  babbling little smurf, boober! 
    • Awe GAWD, your ruining it with the bacon!!
    • Well said del. Well mike since your roast thread got cut up so did the roast. Waiting for the coals but here is the bacon wrapped beauty's waiting for the cast iron..  
    • Ya, this sure went south from a lot of those who always quacked about threads going south. Follow that analogy. Gotta disagree with ya on the braising bit though, Del. It won't always be "well done" by the time it's tender. I atill like to follow the pork rule of "low and slow" for most meats.  But, a roast is always good unless ya totally fudge it up. Now ya got me wanting to make one...think I'll go dig around in the freezer, know I've got one buried in there somewhere, just waiting to be melded with aromatics and tasty sauces...  "Beef, it's what's for dinner!"
