      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 .

Cool Underwater River Cam

And you thought the Shad Cam was addictive.

Ok. That was too much fun. These were all captured in about 15 minutes...Quite the walter hangout I might add. Most of the action is moving from right to left with the occasional carp coming upstream. Ok, now I need to work. Get to know those hotkey commands for capturing, it's pretty tricky!

dang it, I cant figure out how to do a screen capture.

Hit pause when you get a fish image on the control bar at the bottom, shift/print screen at same time, go into "paint" and click edit. Click paste and use "save as" to store image. Then host the image and post here!

When you find out, you will slap your self like I did when I found grin

There is a couple ways, but the most basic is very easy.

When I get home I will put up some pictures on how to do it, if some does not beet me to it before then grin

First question, do you have a photo image hosting site that you use. Have you ever posted an image of FM before?

1. When you see a fish, hit the pause button

2. Do a print screen. There should be a key on your keyboard, you might have to do ctrl/print scree, function/print screen, or maybe just a simple print screen, depending on your keyboard layout.

3. Open up an image editing software (MS paint works fine)

4. Right click copy

5 Edit as needed and save as JPG file

6. Upload to host

7. Post here just like any other picture.

I'm sure there is an easier way, but this is how I do it.

That sucker was mugging there for almost an hour! I got a few good ones of him, but your pics look pretty solid JimBuck. Every time I opened up the window for a while there he was just sitting in front of the camera.

I have to hit shift and print screen. I never tried the others ways.

The print print screen key should be just to the right of you F12 key (upper right of key board).

What Dtro said is the best way to start out. If you have vista, you can do a search in you start menu (leower left of desk top screen) for "Snipping Tool". For me it is a hair a peice, but if you have this it is just as easy.

    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
    • From the tree I assume, not the stand.  But close for sure!  Nice to have a 10 pointer down (and all the other stuff) by this time of year.
    • Sucks to be you, I guess. You really don't know much about BBQ, do you?  
    • Except your thesis is contradicted by the fact that much BBQ doesn't really have much in the way of "strong spices".   
    • I wouldn't call BBQ pork gourmet. It's just finding enough of the right combinations of strong spices and salt to make the poor, tough cuts tolerable to eat. Kinda like the buffalo wings craze. Wings used to be the throwaway parts of a chicken you had to take to get breast meat. Now per pound they are more expensive than any other part of the chicken.    Not a complaint at all as I am pretty addicted to wings and I live pulled pork as well.  Just an observation./opinion. No harm or hurt feelings intended.
    • nice shack, love the pic's with the kids and dog!!
    • Still have the cushions and bench seat to figure out, other than that the only thing I am waiting on is the termination cap for the furnace and I should be ready for ice plus a few rattle reels and rod holders.  Just in time as well, looks like the weather is going to be favorable over the next few weeks for us that like ice.  This is only a day house and will stay at my cottage, the bunk didn’t turn out as big as I would have hoped but my 11,8,5 year old's thoroughly think I am wrong, they love it.  I think for lights I am just going to buy some battery powered solar pucks to see how they work.  Being that I used house windows, I was worried about the nailing flange icing up so I cut some 4" angle and welded in some "V's" so the snow doesn't slide down and accumulate on top of the windows I will need to do the same for the termination cap.   Any input is appreciated.
    • Seasoning is not that big of an issue, just make your own rubs. The internet is full of recipes. It is a bit of work to smoke a pork butt or brisket depending on the smoker you have but with the right equipment it's not so much work as it is the time to prepare.  If you are one of those who are always in a hurry then you may want to just stick with steaks, burgers and hot dogs on the gas grill but if you have some time and want some gourmet food once in a while nothing beats good ole' southern BBQ, for me. The fact that we live in this predominantly Scandinavian region where ribs are usually baked, boiled or put in a crock pot and ketchup is too spicy is all the more reason it is imperative that I be at least semi-competent at BBQing. It is almost impossible to get good,  authentic, southern BBQ around here. You can however get a good steak just about everywhere you turn.
    • Looks like salt, pepper, maybe cayenne and garlic.   30 minute marinade isn't doing much.      Good pork doesn't need much more than salt and pepper and maybe a little sugar.
