      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 .

Do you know anyone who divorced just so they could spend more time hunting and fishing? How did it work out for them? There's got to be some interesting stories out there.

No. I like being married. But I've heard of people that take their hunting or fishing to an extreme and give up their families. I've just never known anyone who did.

I've been married for 33 years and raised a family and hunt and fish many days out of the year. It can work out.

If someone would give up their wife and family so they could fish and hunt more they would have to be pretty selfish and they are probably not someone that would get much respect from me.

Hunting and fishing in the situation you pose are not the issues but the symptoms - there are far greater forces at work and much deeper issues. The list of what those could be is nearly endless and they could be on either of the spouses behalf or both of them.

Just my 2 pennies....

A few years ago I attended a fishing seminar with very famous fisherman. At the conclusion I had the opportunity to have coffee with him and several others who had attended the seminar. During our conversation we talked about how lucky he must be to have such a great career. Much to my suprised he replied that he would have been a lot better off if he had not sacrificed his family for fishing.

Bingo. As much as I love to hunt and fish, I have, and will continue to, give up time on the water and in the woods for my wife and family if needed.

"for better, for worse,

for richer, for poorer,

in sickness or in health,

even through hunting and fishing seasons..."

Let's keep our priorities straight.

But on a side note from that, they need to understand that we need time to fish and hunt.If the woman think they are going to prevent us from fishing and hunting, I would leave, it wouldnt be worth my unhappyness.

I am lucky to have found someone who lets me fish and hunt to the extent that I want while also finding quality time to spend with her. I would never give up my marriage to strictly fish, as others have stated that would just be selfish..

I think it all boils down to the fact that my wife and I knew before getting married that I love the outdoors, and hunting and fishing is a part of my lifestyle. By not hunting or fishing, my life would miserable and so would our marriage. With that, I am glad she also loves to share the boat with me on occasion and catch some fishes...

In the begining, the middle, and the end, those who marry need to understand of each others individualities and how to encorporate those into each others lives to make a marriage work. Marriage is a learning process, each and everyday.. smile.gif

Takes two to make a marriage and two to break one.

It is definitely harder when the kids are young. Now, I get my fishing trip with my buddy and my wife gets her Vegas trip with the girls.

Compromise!

I recently Divorced and hunt and fish more now than I did when I was Married. I did not divorce specificly for that reason. Spooky Old Alice, (my Ex) resents that I have all this freedom and she does not. But I work hard for my time off and I use it as I see fit. Which is its own revenge in its way.

No-one should have to or want to for that matter, So far this summer I have been to Mobridge, Devils Lake, and L.O.W. 3 times. When I get home I do the yard work and a couple of jobs on the Honey-Do list, spend some quality time with her doing whatever she wants, and I am good to go.

I have not told her about Alaska yet, so I better look at

that Do list pretty hard before that. Good Luck and a good woman to ya.

P.S. It helps if you take the kids along.

I have given up fishing for my kids. When they were little they would go with me. When they got a little older they got interested in sports and I became the coach. I have coached t-ball, soccer, softball, baseball and hockey. I fish thru you guys now with the stories that you post on here. My youngest is 15 and this will probably be the last year I coach him in baseball. I have complained about it but inside I have loved every minute of it and would do it all again just to be with them. Soon it will be my time to fish again and hopefully when the sports die down and my kids get thru college they will come with me.

I know people that have divorced twice over hunting and fishing. Not good, but true.

That is a strange question!

My two boy's are my best hunting and fishing buddies that I have. And mom fit's in the boat, deer stand or pheasant field any time she wants to go (she fishes, shoots trap and bow hunts).

Without my family I would have no reason to hunt or fish.

Again very strange question....some individuals are missing the whole point of hunting and fishing! Time together and memories forever!

Luckily my wife does fish with me alot, and hunts with me. I like to fish more then she does but thats not a big deal either. My kids, one would sit longer than I would fishing, the other about 2 hours, then she is done. So we just plan that in our outings.

I wouldnt get a divorce to do more fishing, but if she one day came to me and said thats it, no more fishing and hunting, you need to pick, me or hunting and fishing, Im afraid she would be looking for someone else. I wouldnt make the sacrifice, nor would I ever expect she would do that. I also wouldnt ask her to give up something she likes to do either.

I married the best woman in the world. I ice-fish with her father and go on an annual trip during open water and fish with my father most of the summer. She has given me two beautiful boys and while fishing frequency has declined in the past couple of years (sons are 3 1/2 and 20 months), I hope to enjoy many days on the water with them through childhood, adolecense and into their adulthoods.

I am committed as a father to see my sons grow to be upstanding and respectful citizens in a world that produces less and less each year.

Take care!

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....

      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
