      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 .

Anyone else see this after deadliest catch? I knew the black guy was going to leave, but was very surprised when the guy with the beard left.

I think he was just plain bored. Sounded like he was out there to challenge himself and wound up having play down to the lowest common denominator, or that was the way I seen it portrayed on the show.

Overall I think it is a good show. Kinda shows just how pampered most of are now a days.

I liked that show last year also a lot. They kinda changed it up this year compared to how they did it last year. Kinda bummed me out to see all the outdoorsy people leave already. But if you are going to be on that show to push yourself and see what you got, and the whole team slows you down, I can see why he left. With who they have left I am sure they have a long and tough road ahead. Though they did get those last two "hogs" all by their selves!

I like last years show better. Agreed - "cit-idots" is right. I must admit that the blondie is really cute. I only saw the first episode.

I was miffed as why the fishing guide would go hunting. You'd think he'd would commit to fishing as they dudes who tossed in a net held by a rocks had no clue. I was laughing when they decided to toss rocks at birds. Good luck with that.

I suppose it would be boring if they knew what they were doing.

"You guys are idiots, I'm out"... That is the way I saw it. I respect the decision, I probably would have bailed too. If you have to do it as a team, you are only as good as the worst of the players. When you know what you are doing you are either doing all the work, or holding back to let someone else give it a try. The guy stuck with it long enough to see what was going on and he split.

It wouldn't make for good TV to have a show full of experience outdoor folks.

I think he was full of it man, did you see him fishing with that net thing it didn't look like he knew what he was doing. I think he was all talk man!

Yes I know this is a old thread to respond too, but I am procrastinating on doing an online test.

Dan Rac the policeman tapped out on the last show. I think he just was so disappointed in the new shelter, he wanted to go. But I also think that the last few remaining might just make it.

The first one to drop was the older gal from Wis. that was a "hunter". She had hunted before but like the "fishing guide", didn't really seem to have much game.

Though they were both smart enough to see the ordeal being much tougher than it needs to be.

I've been wondering where all the caribou are? I don't think they've seen any big game yet, have they? And what would they do if they actually got a caribou? At least they have a gun now that can kill something bigger.

Maybe they should yell while they're hunting just a little more. wink

Yeah last year they hunted some big game. This year I am not too sure any of the ones left would know what to do with something bigger than a "ground squirrel". Though they did get that nice skinning knife.

Nice that they deked em into thinking they actually had another 14 miles up hill in the snow to go. crazy

I bet if it were six miles on level ground they would have kept going instead of waiting out the scheduled train to take them to their folks.

They foreshadowed that one. But what the heck, it was time.

I have to give the finishers props for their determination. They were fishes out of water for that trip but they were figuring it out and had the confidence and will to finish - even with having an easy button.

    • Thanks for the replies. I am going to get a box of 1 3/4 #5's and a box of 1 3/4 #6's and pattern them against what I have been shooting, Hope to get that done when I go up to mow my trails this fall, whenever I can free up some time to go. I will post some results.
    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair. 
    • Cullen comes back on a very cap friendly deal.  1yr 1mil.
    • Manky, I have used dog food with grease as a filler and it works great! No issue but you  don't want to add to much grease and make all the dog food to soggy. 
    • A guy can never have to many decoys!
    • Boar, in past years you have posted that you use dog food at some bait sites, with grease on it, how does it work? Thanks minky
    • Anyone having any action at their bear baits? I have one bear coming in.
    • It seems like summer just got here and already there are signs of it ending. In the north a few maple trees are just starting to show some fall colors. A pair of bucks were seen this week, one still in velvet antlers and the other had already shed. The late summer yellows of tansy, black-eyed Susans and goldenrod speak of shorter days to come.Continued rain showers in the last week, especially across the north, are keeping river systems at higher than normal levels for mid-August. Brown trout fishing continues to pick up on the Bois Brule River. The catfish bite is on on the Wisconsin River in central Wisconsin with anglers landing good number of channel catfish. Some walleye, smallmouth bass, catfish and drum are being caught in the Peshtigo and Menominee rivers. Anglers have had good success on both the Fox and Wolf rivers catching northern pike, walleye, catfish and panfish.On Green Bay, anglers fishing for walleye on the west shore from the mouth of the Pensaukee River to Oconto are finally getting on to fish, while along the east shore success was more mixed with about half the boats reporting harvesting a few walleye while others did not catch any. Anglers targeting smallmouth bass along Door County had success in water ranging from 4 to 20 feet. In Sturgeon Bay perch fishing has been pretty good with some anglers catching their 15 fish bag limit including some larger 12-inch perch. .
    • I prefer and shoot 1 3/4 oz of 6's which will whack anything out to 50-60 yards
