      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 .

Michigan Gobblers - pics

I spent some time visiting family in Michigan last week and I had heard the stories of the "wild" turkeys that roamed the property, and some of the stories were indeed wild.

We arrived late at night and when visiting we hopped onto the computer and I saw some photos and video that blew my mind! Big Toms and Jakes beating on their house, the roof, the walls, and mainly on set of french doors that exited the walk-out basement. Blood covered glass, cut screens, and turkey poo all over the cement slab near the door. shocked.gif

Then, my first morning in the house I woke up to a couple sounds of gobbles, and sure enough, 2 big ole' Toms are strutting their stuff in front of the french doors outside the bedroom. I quick grabbed the camera and took a couple shots before the turkeys saw me and took off.

The photos are poor quality, but you can see one screen that obstructed the picture a bit and how mangled it is just above the backs of the turkey. These were some dandy Toms... crazy.gif

Every morning of our visit they stopped by these doors for a visit. grin.gif

Looks like they've got a couple trouble makers that need to be taught a lesson. Maybe you should bring a Posse. wink.gif

Chuck:

Spurs look too sharp. Threat to the children. I think you'll have to get a MI permit next year and show them how it works in MN!

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
