      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 .

Name Suggestions

Recommended Posts

This has probably been discussed before, but I would like some suggestions for puppy names...

My wife and I picked up our 7 week old GSP last Thursday and have been struggling to come up with a name. I don't want to choose a name just for a name's sake, but nothing seems to stick. We're concerned that we need to come up with a name within the next week or so, just to get the pup off on the right foot.

Some of the names we have already discussed are: Lightning, Blizzard (the pup's dad's name), Darby, Kodiak (shortened possibly to Cody or Kody), Leopold (shortened to Leo) and Leif.

Our last dog's name was perfect the very first time we said it...we havent been as lucky this time.

Thanks for the help!

Male I assume?

I had a Shorthair once... named him 'Baron'. Thought it fit well with his German heritage.

How about 'Rudy' short for rooster, or 'Ruff' as in grouse. 'Sage' or 'Tag' as in the cover the birds live in...

Good Luck!

Picking out a name can be difficult. You are right, the minute you say it, you'll know that is fits. I had to go through that since summer. I came up with Gus the Dog based on a character from the book "The River Why". I have always thought Earl was a classic name for a dog. 10-15 years ago I swore that's what I'd name my next dog. Unfortunately, since then I have become good friends with 2 Earl's and it just doesn't seem right, I wouldn't want the pup to feel offended grin.gif.

NO matter what name you choose, don't select one that ryhmes with a command. I knew a dog that was named "Kit" and that was a very confused dog (because of "sit"). My current dog's name is "Buzz." The kids named him.

Thanks for all of the great suggestions so far....

By the way, yes it is a male...sorry for leaving that out!

My last dog's name was Remington. He was one of the first dogs I knew with that name. We got him in the spring of 1994, and the first time we said the name "Remington", it was perfect. It has become a very popular name these days, though.

I do like the last suggestion of Blaze...I'll have to see what the boss lady thinks! Keep the suggestions coming....sooner or later one will jump out that seems just right!

Smart man! laugh.gif

I like names that are somewhat different so if you're hunting with someone else and you're both yelling at your dog (that NEVER happens, right?), your dog won't get confused. My old GSP was Sadie and my good friend has a GSP named Sunday. We'd call one and they both came...and they looked like twins too!

I also like 2 syllable names for some reason.

Axel

Dieter

...and other good German names...

Blaze

I like to follow my grandpa's style, when it comes to giving dogs their names. He had one named Rain, because it was raining when he got her. One named Yeller because he was yellow. And my favorite, Last because it was going to be his last dog. When my wife brought home our current dog, I named her Sunday. It was that or Wal-Mart, since she got her in their parking lot. grin.gif

Picked up a six month old chocolate lab and my wife did not like the name it was given. "Ringer". So we had to come up with something close. We were working with ringer one day on heal and sit. My wife said, he always sticks his STINGER out when he sits blush.gif. Well there you go dear, you just named our dog "STINGER"

After 12 1/2 years she still tries to call him stinker grin.gifgrin.gif.

We got a new puppy (GWP) a month ago and we must have had 30 names picked out. Everyone in the family had a reason not to name her every name we came up with. Finally, my son said "How about Piper?" No one had a reason not to name her that, so we went with it. I think of the Piper Cub when I hear it.

My rules were: It can't sound like NO, It needs to be short and sharp sounding, and I don't want to be embarrassed yelling it in the field.

Good Luck and have fun with the new GSP!

My dog is named aspen. wanted something original. That and it is sort of a family tradition to name dogs after funny movies. My parents dog is named Cooper after the movie Baseketball, i figured i would pick a name out of my favorite movie "Dumb and Dumber"

"where ya headed?"

"Aspen"

"Mmmm, California, Beautiful!"

Hey everyone,

Thanks for all of the really great suggestions!

There were a lot of names in the previous posts that caught the attention of my wife and I, but we still had a tough time agreeing on names. We were able to agree on Leopold...it's a bit long, but it works, and plan to mostly call him Leo.

      My rod bag with 5 rods in it fell off my sled while walking out from the public access on Sat. afternoon.
      I didn't notice until I had walked out to a spot and drilled some holes and started to get set up to fish.
      By the time I walked back to shore the bag had been picked up.


      Please let me know if you have any info.
      Thank you,

      Looked like a good time guys. Wish i could have been there unfortunatly i had to work. I hope i can make the next one.

      Got out Saturday afternoon and after putting in some time drilling holes finally found panfish in 20-24 ft, almost in the basin areas I'd look mid winter.  Crappie and sunfish were mixed and we caught almost all of our fish on a small jig and waxworm.  Tried minnows and only caught a couple fish that way, even when we were catching fish on waxworms in a hole 3 ft away.  They seemed to want something to chase so keeping the jig moving and pulling away from them helped quite a bit.  Had 10" of ice where we were fishing and was pretty consistent, but there's lots of reports of extremely varying ice thickness so keep checking ice thickness on your way out.

      WARNING a buddy was on  MELISSA and was aiming towards the crappie hole in the NE Corner/First break to fish out there last night.  He was checking ice and was having 10" of ice then hit 3"!  Please be careful out there.  Needless to say he turned around and went back to the access.

      Best use I can think of for a selfie stick. Great fish.

      I will second what Icehawk said.... some good lakes around you. Briggs chain is close, some very nice fish in that system. I tend to fish fairly shallow(under 10ft) most of the time 6-8 right in or on the edge of the weeds for the gills.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.
