      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 .

They had kind of a marathon on last night. I had a report to do in my Income Tax class on the senate, means and ways committee Tax Act of 2009 due today. Try working on a paper about boring taxes when there is a UFC marathon on TV. Not easy

I watched some of it....it was pretty good. Got to see some matches that I hadn't seen, matches that had been fought on PPV. I thought that Anderson Silva was all but invincible....although he lost,Dan Henderson showed that although tough and wily, the spider has some chinks in his armor.

Who is he supposed to be fighting? I hope it isn't someone like Mark Coleman or Nog? I hope it's someone half a$$ good. Don't get me wrong, those guys were good in their time frame, but they have lost their edge due to age.

Ooops, got the Brocks mixed up again....gonna have to focus a little more. He's a rough customer that always comes to fight.

Maybe I missed something? Maybe they moved the fight up from the first, I understood from the lone commercial I seen, that Condit was on the card Wed.?

I couldn't stand that loud mouth! Unless he got alot better then what he was on the Ultimate Fighter series, I think Miller will eat his lunch.

Maybe he's a quick study and did some improving, but if Miller stomps a mud hole in his a$$, it isn't gonna break my heart, thats for sure!

Dana White must have seen something in him? He came off as someone who was probably could fight a little, but got himself in with a bunch.....hey, wait a minute? Didn't they have an elimination last year to see who would be on the show? He must have beaten someone? I thought he got eliminated and then brought back?

There is only one UFC fighter that I can't stand and Junie browning is him. I couldn't stand Chris Leben either, another loud mouth who peed in a guys bed. He classed up a little, but when he gets worked over like he did by Anderson Silva, no tears from me.

Remember Junie's last fight though? He seemed to have changed alot from the show and showed some maturing in his last showing.

eek I forgot about that! Man, I hope he got worked over good by whoever he fought! I can't remember which one it was, but the others should have teamed up with socks with bars of soap in them and worked that nasty, latent, sissy over! Thats to nasty and on national television, I bet he won't live that down for awhile..."Hey, aren't you the one that.....salad, housemates....get out of my place!"

I still can't stand big mouth Browning, or Leben.

I'm going to name drop. I was out on Ida in Alec last week and fished with Brock Lesner and his neighbor for a couple of hours. I just happens that we ended up in the same general area.

Nice guys--We shared some good laughs and I can say that they're both "Good Americans", if you get my drift.

I got all goofed up? I heard and seen a portion of the commercial for Wed. nights UFC fights and for some reason, I was thinking it was going to be alot more then it was?

I was thinking I was gonna see Vader and Condit and that the lead up to the UF series was gonna start right after it. Boy, did I have that twisted!

Sometimes a little information can be worse then none at all and I didn't research it on the UFC site any further.....I'm gonna go stand in the corner for awhile now.

This ought to be good! I think I'm gonna get some munchies and hunker down for some extended T.V. watching. I only have a short time to put on somemore winter weight before spring and summer gets here and I have to lose it!

I can hardly believe it, I went from a 32 to a 40 inch waist over the winter, sitting around watching things like the UFC, American Idol and WEC....it's terrible! eek

    •   Yeah but it is worth a shot to take it somewhere and try to talk to an expert about it. They may know where to look for some proof marks or something that the rest of us may miss.
    • I'll have to take another look and see if I can find any kind of markings that I've maybe missed. It won't ever get fired in my lifetime. I am hoping to find a couple old pin fire shells to display alongside it. I really doubt the gun has any "real" value and agree that it's probably an inexpensive gun. It will look good hanging over my bar in the basement though.  Thanks all for the recommendations! 
    • smiling is good for the soul.  
    • Well you do seem to be smiling all the time. Now we know why!
    • it worked a bit better.  drilled about 40 holes thru 10 to 11 inches. would be nice if the flighting was bigger. Happy with the performance and didnt break the bank.  
    • So Eye guy did you try your nils after frank adjusted it? was thinking about dumping my 6in lazer and my 8in Thunder Bay blazer and picking up a 6in nils.
    • Regardless where you take it, without proof marks of some kind it will be extremely difficult for ANYBODY to state with certainty WHO made the shotgun. To me it has the look of an an inexpensive German gun. I still say your best bet might be research on your own. Check the time period for pin-fires and common makers of that time. But without ANY kind of proof marks it is going to be tough sledding. If a gun has NO markings, not even PROOF markings, it is really at the bottom of the heap. Heck, it might even have been something made right down the street from where you grandfather lived!! Hang it-Don't bang it!!!
    • Well you did say sometimes it's hard to get your point across with this group.
    • Well a few days ago we got hit hard by a good cold front and the temperatures plummeted down into the 50s here in Islamorada, FL.  We also had another reinforcing front back that one up, so things stayed chilly.   The water in the backcountry bays dropped into the high 50s as well in some portions.  Though a day after each front passed the winds laid down and gave way to some epic fishing.  Today I had Pam and Lars down from Arkansas and we fished deep in the everglades.  We got out early and were loaded up with some nice lively shrimp.  When the water temps drop this far, usually everything is pretty keyed in on shrimp - they don't want to work too hard for that meal and expend a lot of energy.  Working them very slowly on the bottom, really just letting them lay and twitching every so often, works wonders.  Once we got set up and the tide started moving in, it was game on.  Pam and Lars each landed well into the double digits on snook, and quite a few 'big girls' for us... fish in the 8 to 12 lb range.  Multiple double headers it was a blast!  We also had quite a few black drum and nice redfish too.  Very good to see the reds as they've been hard to find especially in the summer time, as much of their habitat has been beat up due to algae blooms and grass die off.  But in the winter they do show up in the 'winter time holes' along with their cousins the black drum, snook, and sheepshead.  We also saw several small tarpon rolling about.  I didn't have much hope that they would bite but knew it was a possibility.  We kept throwing in their direction, and soon Pam hooked and landed a nice 25 lb tarpon!  Not to be outdone, Lars got one about an hour after that.  Backcountry SLAMS for both anglers, wow!  We continued catching fish for several hours it was just epic, also got a few trout mixed in which we kept for dinner.  I don't particularly like killing our drum, especially the redfish, due to the lack of numbers... and snook are currently out of season and also more of a gamefish for us too.  On the way home we hit the gulf side to look for some triple tail.  It was so calm and those fish like to lay on the surface near the crab buoys, sunning themselves and waiting for an easy meal.  We saw quite a few but mostly little guys, though we caught several and got one that was big enough for dinner too at least.  Just a banner day out of Islamorada in December fishing.  I have the same crew again tomorrow and then several days open next week, come on down the fishing is great!

    • I’ve never been to Ahlman’s but by the looks of their page, yah, probably a great resource too. Boone’s is similar in respects to offerings and massive showroom layout but I don’t think they have the gunsmithing depth of Ahlman’s.
