      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 .

things lost to the lake not including the big one

Recommended Posts

While fishing out on French lake, years ago, I set the hook big time and right down the hole went a Colman double mantle latern. Watched it turn the vexilar green until it hit bottom. Tried snagging it, but no luck. We did bring a nice mess of fish home tho...............

I'm thinking about making up a screen with a slot for the line in it, could still see the bobber, thats easily removed when needed for my permanent. Could save hundreds maybe thousands of dollars over a lifetime!!!

First time out 5 years ago I lost a full, unopened can of Bud Light. My buddy and I spent the next few hours coming up with great Super Bowl commercials about it.

Example:

Call police, tell them your bud (instead of buddy) fell in the lake, they send a full search crew with divers, the crew comes up with full unopened can, and I smile and slam the beer...

There ya go. How about Plexiglas? (couple inches bigger than the hole of course, so it too doesn't fall in.)

Two years ago, somewhere in the abyss of Red lake my son found out the hard way that his WWE action figures of "Tripple H" and "Batista" did not float! Maybe Kelly P has found them or the Red Lake seals ate them!

The holes in a fishhouse seem to have magnetic powers over dice. If you miss them they leave the table, everyone just looks at each other and listens as they hit the heater or bucket then the floor and roll then silence. Everyone hopes it hits the edge but the sound is always the same. Kerploop.

dropped a can of campbells chucky chicken noodle soup (opened of course) Saved the can, but the noodles & all the fixins went down the hole. Had a whole pile of noodles under my hole. The white color of the noodles (or the smell) DO NOT attract any fish. The pile went straight down and stayed there in a blob.

Last year my g/f and I were out fishing in the porty. I went out to put a tip-up out and all of sudden i heard something slam on the floor of the house and hit the water. All at once she yells a bad word and starts yelling here phone went down! She said she watched it slowly float to the bottom. Man she was mad,she called her dad when we got home and he laughed at her!

A spoon that I was going to use to eat some soup.. and a jigging rap that the line melted and lost it so I dropped the camera down to see if I could see it didn't so I pulled it up and the line got tangled on the cable and I got it back!

    • Very nice photos eyeguy54.
    • Ya he comes home the 29th getting excited for pheasant going to take a trip out to sodak this year Ended up showing a guy from work who is a first time bow hunter a couple of my spots in Sherburne. Was going to walk kunkel after for grouse but it ended up getting too late so just went home. Was hoping for some good weather this weekend but doesn't look too good. Friday is a high of 90! no thanks Maybe I will get a morning sit in for deer hunting if the rain cooperates
    • anybody know what it is?
    • I've been finding a few hens, but nothing like last year (which was great for me).  Here's one that was just shy of ten pounds sitting next to my daughter.
    • You may as well paddle a green kiddie pool around.  Might find one for 50 cents if you look a little. Um, yeah, I've actually seen it done. 
    • Good move!  I'm sure they are thankful! I might've made an offer if I'd seen this before but they'll probably be better used in the organization that received them. Sorry the hear your hunting days are over.
    • There is no way Koivu doesn't get more term and $$ in free agency, not a lot more but he gets more. Marleau is trending down and got more money, Hansel got 750 less and is not in the same league as Koivu. I was hoping for something like 4.5 or 5 but what he got at 2 years is very reasonable. He is a lifelong wild, our captain and a great player, we have no immediate replacement, he makes our team better for the next 3 years be it 1/2/3 center. This isn't something to get upset about, scandella trade sure, aging parise sure but that had to be done, not getting a young center sure but that can sometimes be out of our control because it takes two teams to trade. I get it people are bitter about last year but what fan base isn't bitter about this or that? 
    • I ran 10 gauge wire from my shore or generator feeder to my converter.  Way over kill for a 2000 watt generator but if you ever take it camping or run it off a 3k in the summer it's nice to be wired for the extra wattage.  10 feet of 10 gauge really isn't that much money on the whole project... nice thing about running your inverter directly from the battery and splitting a couple outlets is they are always ready to go.  Just hit the switch on the inverter and you don't have to mess with unplugging and plugging in strings of 110 outlets.  Behind my tv the bottom outlet runs of the Genny and the top runs of the inverter.  Nice thing is if I ever wanted to run the whole 110 system off the inverter I can just run a 6 inch cord with a male plug on each end out the top outlet and into the bottom and power the whole house.
    • This looks like it will work to me. I had thought of doing something similar when I was thinking of going with the inverter, seperate 12v fuse block and onboard charger. Would have wired a "hot" outlet direct from generator. Then ran a piece of romex with a male plug wired onto it and tied the 110v into that. then I could have either plugged that into the "hot" outlet along with the onboard charger, when the generator was running. Or I could have plugged it into the inverter when needing to run off battery power.
    • never been there, have to go!!!   off 10 right???   or where?? thanks!!
