      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 .

The most stupid thing ever said fishing, camping or around a fire?

Recommended Posts

Sitting at a fire with a few friends and family and alot of Premiums. My step mom comes out of the house and say's "Can you guys turn down that fire?" NO joke without even thinking about it I say "Sure just let me look for the switch." She got mad and went back in the house while we all almost wet our pants laughing.

Seriously what kind of question is that? Its a fire they really don't come with a remote to turn them down.

Anyone else have a good one to share?

When we were on a hunting trip and having a few beers around the camp fire a couple of local ride into our campsite on their wheelers. You can tell they are pretty stoned or something but we let them pull up a lawn chair and join us. One of them passes out head tipped back towards the moon and stars. He wakes up in a while still looking straight up and says "Man look at those wheeler lights coming down the road they look far out". Then he gets up and goes over to the firewood pile and takes a nap on top of it.

First thing I thought of was "hey guys watch this........"

Best one that's ever happened to us was staying at a USFS campground and a guy came from the other end of the campground and said "do you guys think you're the only ones here?"

I know its not terribly funny on face value, but you had to be there. It was maybe 10:30pm in the middle of the summer, cars were driving through the campground and everything and this guy decided to single us out and we were being pretty tame.

One of my friends good friends who is a bit of a burn out came out last minute to camp. After some beverages he only had his car to sleep in and asked... " Will I sufficate in my car if I sleep in it with the windows shut?" haha..this is still brought up all the time. He really is the king of stupid comments/questions. One time he was being serious when we were out to eat and asked, "Do you have to be 21 to eat beer battered shrimp?" laugh

We were up on Miltona last fall doing some musky fishing. Got set-up and had a few frosty's. Then this couple walks over to our fire and the guy starts rambling on. Well his wife no more than sat down on the picknic table when she lets out one of the loudest farts i've ever heard. She ask's....."I hope you guys didnt hear that??" I about tipped over from laughing. She immidietly gets up and walks off without saying another word. Its was kind of uncomfortable because we had no clue who these people were yet funny at the same time.

A few years ago my friend who has his trailer at a seasonal site at a resort told me about his campground neighbor. The man, would go from site to site in the evenings, visit with the negihbors and would always be a little better at whatever the topic was and earned the nickname "The [PoorWordUsage]'er". His female companion had earned the nickname "The moaner" becasue of her late night vocals. One day I was talking with my friends and commented that I hadn't seen the "[PoorWordUsage]'er or the Moaner" all day. Turns out they were outside the trailer and heard me and shot me a glare and went inside. (I'm no good at whispering).

Back in the day, right out of High school 2 buddies and I took a road, fishing trip out to Yellowstone. One night we were sitting around the camp fire having a few, and out of the darkness walks this very nice looking girl with short shorts, and halter top on who just sits down and starts talking to us! Every young mans Dream! grin We all were thinking, which one of us will get lucky tonight! laugh It all started out ok as we all talked about where we were from ect, ect. Then she started getting a little weird and talking about some roommate of hers that stolen her stereo and a bunch of other stuff and that she was going to learn Witch craft so she could cast a spell on her! After all that we couldn't seem to drink up enough courage to try anything with the psycho baby, and we told her we had to turn in for the night! cry Now lets hear how you guys would have handled that when you were 18!! Short of anything that you would have gone to prison for!!

I'll claim this comment for my own. We were sitting around a campfire in high school and I was going on and on about my old Mustang. Finally I turned to one of my buddies and said, "I think the worst problem with that car is that it seems to be burning gas."

I got laughed at for months for saying that one, of course I meant to say that I was smelling a gasoline leak but the beer gremlins changed my words around.

It couldn't have been the beer. Beer always makes us really smart. I think I'm the smartest guy on the planet when I've had a few.

I have been on this site for a couple of years and I have to say beyond a doubt this is the best thread I have seen. Keep em comming and I will try to think of one of my own. The only problem is campfires and memory are sometimes two words that don't work to well together.

We had just picked up all the dog doo-doo from the yard so we could have a clean walkway out back to the fire pit and my dad said to throw it on the fire. Of course he did even with my warning not too. What a stench! He was not happy when I said I told you so. It took a couple of bonfires to get it all burned up. Had to watch the fire from inside the house.

I've got a ton of good ones, but most are kinda fuzzy and wouldn't make sence......

Although this one sticks out.....

"Lets pick up that couch that Domeier (ME!) is passed out on and put it on the fire"

And

"Just a little more gas won't hurt." (Seconds before my buddy is doing the stop, drop, and roll and we are headed to the ER)

    • Yeah, it's not BigDave for nothing there fella!
    • It's dinner and supper!
    • My wife loooves Beets. Here's my recipe Lot of beets, as many as you can fit in to a large boiling pan. .add 1 cup draino .add 1 cup muriatic acid .heat with a blow torch throw off hwy over pass so they get tender under semi truck tries for one hour. Then go get some food and have a Beer! Enjoy! Hate um!      
    • The guy who told me this said teal were in big groups and he saw a few hundred
    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.  
    • If that's lunch, I'd love to see dinner!! 
    • We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim
    • Looks good, for sure. 
    • No, but this is what I would get if I was there.
