      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, Jim said there was plenty of ice on Moose Lake. Lots of snow though too!! He did moderately well on Saturday. I'll be heading on up to the cabin on Friday after work and will fish on Saturday hopefully!!

Yes there is snow on the lakes, but I am not going to throw in the towel! I figure where there is a will there is a way. With all the snow it should bring out the snowmobilers, they will pack down paths across the ice, plus we keep getting subzero temps up here (-22 in Bigfork this am). In fact my fishing buddy did this for me last year, made several trips across the lake with his snowmobile and packed it down real good. Then I took the 4 wheeler and rode out on the paths, after a while the snow settles some, the slush underneath freezes and voila!!! I also might hit Winnie one of these days and pay for access and use plowed roads. Sure is not going to stop my 2 trips to Millelacs or Burntside Bash.

thanks gals. reason i asked i had duty phone this past weekend and got a call from someone up at taconite harbor and the only way he could explain the weather was NASTY! need to try and figure out when i can get up and blow the driveway out cause that may take the better part of the day, and when its not 20 below out.

It won't stop us either. It's worth paying the access fees to get on Winnie when it gets this sloppy but I don't think Highbanks is open until the end of the month anyway. It's cold here today too. It's 15 below!

I am for sure in for the Burntside Bash now too!!! Yay me!!

Good to hear you can make it to the bash Lisa. I'll be there with my brother and/or son. Wanda will be laying on a beach in Jamaica sipping a cold one that weekend with her girlfriends.

Christmas Eve, -9 here right now and I get the upmost pleasure of going out and firing up the snowblower and clearing the driveway. The driveway is 380 feet long so it's gonna take a while. The "old grouch" is really ticked at me because I am the one who talked him into moving up here. He's not real happy with the no Christmas presents policy this year either. Our present will probably be a plow for the 4 wheeler. He should actually be happy that he doesn't have to shop for me, although a couple of chubby darters would be nice. Have a wonderful day everyone!!!

Well it only took me an hour and a half. Halfway through my favorite fishing buddy stopped by with his truck and plowed what I hadn't already done. So Lisa tell Jim he doesn't have to stop by and do it for me, HaHaHa.

I am so ready to go up. Don't see it happening for a while, maybe the 9th weekend.

Have to get this work project over with first and it looks like the next 2 weekends are work related. I am getting to old for this.

    • Yup so far this season would have had 2 nice ones with a shotgun I just keep telling myself archery is life lol
    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity.
