      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 .

KFAN Animal fighting bracket

Recommended Posts

Anyone see this? 16 animals fighting to the death (hypothetically of course) in a tournament.

The rules:

1 Animals fight in an enclosed arena. No escaping

2 The area is the size of a football field

3 the surface is natural grass

4 there is no time limit

5 first animal to die loses, regardless of damage done to the winner.

The animals:






Water Buffalo

Polar Bear

Elephant Seal

African Elephant

Mountain Lion







Look it up under the power trip show. Be sure to read the rules and animal weights before filling out your bracket. I have Elephant all the way edging out the croc. in the title match. It's kind of fun to debate the results.

HA - I heard them talking about it a couple days ago. Sludge was really talking up the Gorilla. I think he had King Kong on the brain though.

i would say the rhino or hippo would win... they have the best combination of speed, size, and strength out of all those animals... you cant JUST be big or just be strong, etc you have to have to right combo of all 3 traits.

You have to follow the bracket online. The croc could get to the finals without facing a rhino or hippo. Elephants are mean, smart and hudge. Elephant all the way baby. It would just stand up on its back legs and crush a rhino. Plus it's tusks are longer then the weak little baby rhino horn. grin

Slow night at work here, so my 2 cents

Croc & Gator at a disadvantage since no water. I haven't seen the official brackets, so if i took the first 8 vs the last 8, I'd have it down to a polar bear vs the elephant. I think I'd take the polar bear over the elephant though, assuming each animal automatically reverts back to 100% health at the end of each match crazy

After further review, all are winners according to your new left-leaning administration and sports parents (which pretty much would include wives as discussed above but wouldn't exclude kids with two moms or two dads or errant combinations therewith that would otherwise find exclusion due to green- and/or left-thinking to which in some parts of our nation would require severe taunting or kicking of the part reserved as being the back end of a donkey or some such creature etc.).

Having said that, each animal and their family will get the highly coveted and/or desired participation ribbon and/or certificate or trophy significant of their spirt and competition.

And none of them would be really be hurt because they were all wearing bike helmets, knee pads, wrist guards, and proper safety eyewear. Oh yeah, the males would also be wearing a cup.

    • 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.
