      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 .

Question for the married folks...

Recommended Posts

I could've sworn for the first time married license you have to know their SSN. After the first year, if you bring your old one with you, then its real easy to take care of and nothing to change.

I'll get that info to be on the safe side. Thanks, guys.

alittle off the topic but, I was really surprised the 2nd time I bought a non-res license there in Minn. All I did was show my drivers license and up all my info from previous days showed up for a quick and easy issue. One year here in SoDak I was checked but I left my wallet in the truck. All the CO needed was my DOB and last 4 of my SSN and it showed up in a hand held computer he had. The grandaughter was with me and they asked her for her DOB (she was under 16) and we were good to go.

All I can say is aim low on the weight question! Either that or just don't show her the license. Nothing ruins a day of fishing quicker than that voice from that back of the boat saying "You think I weigh how much?"

Can you buy a husband and wife combo but only one Trout stamp?

Yes. I get the combo and only the trout stamp for myself.

Ditto on the weight and make sure you get the color of her eyes right. Man was that a mistake you will only make once believe me!

I was buying ours last year and she wasn't with me. It went something like this:

Guy: What color are her eyes?

Me: Brown

Guy: What's her weight?

Me: Excuse Me?

Guy: What does she weigh?

Me: You gotta be kidding me.

Guy: How long have you been married?

Me: 11 years.

Guy: You've been married for 11 years and you don't know how much she weighs?

Me: That's right.

Guy: Well, you wanna call her and ask?

Me: (laughing) You'd like that, wouldn't you? Hey Man, I'd like to be able to go home later.

Guy: Well, take a guess.

Me: Wow, that's dangerous. Ok. How about _____?

Guy: Why you asking me? She's your wife.

Me: How long have you been married?

Guy: 32 years.

Me: Do you know what she weighs?

Guy: (chuckle) She doesn't fish.

Me: I see. Take 10 pounds off my guess and we'll call it good.

You may want to make sure you know here eye color too. I screwed that one up but she knows I am not a detail guy. I guessed the weight light too so that made up for some of her ire over the eye thing.

Wow. My wife ballooned to a whopping 112# when she was pregnant with our 3rd. In 30 years that's the only time she broke the 100# mark. The weight question is a non-issue for me.

    • 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. 
    • Any recent reports?
    • Down this way I have been getting most my fish around weed edges and weed clumps. Trigs for good edges and chatterbaits worked on bottom or over the weeds, kinda how I would fish a jig. Water around here is pretty murky right now. Docks have been good on those lakes with dirty water and not so many weeds.
