      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 .

To Chris for putting up with me yesterday in the shack, you are an asset to the spearing community, I'll post up some picks of the 6-8 Muskies that we saw roll through as soon as I can.

I'm glad you could make it out. It was a fun day.

Pretty cool seeing those fish, huh?

I wish a decent northern would have come in to the decoys. It would have been nice to spear one more to end the season and to show you that too.

Thanks for taking the time to see spearing first hand.

Huey,

I wish you would have called me.

I would have brought the 30" northern deke out there.

I would have loved to see a 50+ musky crush it. lol

Yeah.. I probably should have called you. You would have enjoyed the day too. I think you and MuskieFool would have gotten a kick out of each other. To be honest, I didn't call because I was worried about having to spend my last day of spearing refereeing a muskie/spearing debate between the two of you. In hindsight, I don't think that would have been a problem, but I didn't know that until I met John/MuskieFool.

BTW, we did see a 50" muskie. Makes me wonder how that affects the northern fishing?

I would have behaved.

A guy as big as you, with a spear in his hand... I think we both would have listened. grin

I was watching the VS channel and they had some guy muskie fishing in the mississippi just south of the cities.

He caught a 10~12 lb northern or "snake" as he called it, with big ole scars in the center of it where a musky clamped on to him. I guess he fought loose of the muskie.

Just think.. a 50lb fish with a 10 lb fish inside.

I still have the green house. And I have one of Fish's saws too. It's an ugly hole, isn't it? frown I got in a rush to get set up in time. Oh well, it worked fine.

Bassman- do you still cut all the holes for BnS?

    • I couldn't find a recipe anywhere online for pickling raw  beets (unless just refrigerator beets) so I must have been mistaken and will just cook them first!  Love them pickled but not so much just cooked!  Thanks for ALL the comments!  
    • Who was looking for .22 shorts on here??? Someone was......Bobby Bass?
    • Hmmm...poor customer service. Shoulda offered to show her a pic of yer pride and joy instead.   
    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL. 
    • A friend cleaned out a relative's house and gave me some ammo, some of which I can't use. Looking for reasonable offers on any of the following. I am in Inver Grove Heights.

    • LOL! Literally just a couple days ago you (Delcecchi) and Leech made the rule that someone shouldn't include you in a conversation that you aren't already engaged in and now you (Delcecchi) are butthurt that you (Delcecchi) weren't included in my statement in a thread you (Delcecchi) had yet to be engaged in. You can't make this stuff up.
