      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 .

Thanks My Brothers

I just wanted to say thanks to all that have been supportive during this tough time for my family. The tough times are now over.

Boomer, our 11.5 year old yellow lab, (AKA "Boomie") died this morning at 6:35 am in my arms.

Boomer was one of the family -- our first born, if you will. It will be very difficult to be without Boomer, but we do have 16 month old Copper.

Thanks again to all --

Hitman

Sorry to hear about the loss of a friend and remember that Boomie wont be in any pain any longer. I have went through this as many have and time will heal all. Just remember all the good times that you had with Boomie.

Thanks so much you guys. I have spoken to some of you over the phone during the day today and I thank you very much -- every little bit helps.

A Neighbor friend wrote this ...

So sorry to hear about Boomer, he was a great dog, friend, therapist and everything to you. When I think of a man and his best friend that is truly you and boomer. He had a good life. Hang in there and let us know if there is anything you need.

A Guy I work with wrote this ... He is a poet and writer.

I'm sorry to hear about Boomer's death. I can't imagine a member of the

family dying in my arms. I hope everyone is able to handle this as his

life is remembered and celebrated.

In The Old House

for Ozzie a German Shepherd

In the morning

Whistling through your nose

You ran in new snow

And when you came inside

With all this startling winter

It melted in the old house where you slept

In the afternoon

You panted under the reasonably eternal sun

Swam barking in the lake

Got caught in a howling thunderstorm

And slept with us

In the cool-dry daydreams of the old house

In the evening

I kissed and held your death

Your beautiful death in the old house

At night

I try to sleep after tears

Like a predictable storm

Which takes me away

The snow tries to get into the old house

The wind tries to get into the old house

I turn on my single pillow

The only thing that enters the old house

Now

Is the whistle of the train like a holy chant

And you are gone

Hang in there,

Jim

Thanks again to all.

Eye --

Thanks. I don't know if you ever met Boomie out on the frozen water, but he was a heck of a pup.

Hitman,

Been through what you are going through a couple of times now. Those big retrievers are almost human, in fact I think they are better than most humans I have met. I saw your other post about cremating your dog and wanted to respond albeit I may to too late. There is a really nice pet cemetery located just south of Fargo on south university drive. I only live about a 1/2 mile away and have buried a couple of dogs there. It is called Sundown and is listed in the Fargo phone directory. When I had my last dog buried there it was $75.00 and this included a marker and burial box. Just thought you should know about this option and let you know my thoughts are with you.

blulund you're right but it's kind of funny that I live about a mile and a half from there, to the south in Forest River. Hitman,sorry to hear about Boomer, I've got a three year old chocolate that made us go from a queen size bed to a king, they're something else.

Thanks, BOB.

FDog -- Yeah I need to get out a little more. I went to the cities this weekend for a Twins game and that helped too. Still strange to come home and not see him.

My sympathies go out to you. I had to put down my first dog, a 13 year old lab down in April of this year. Still can't get over the fact that he's gone, but I'm sure time will help mend the sadness.

It is still so strange to get up and not see him waiting for some food or jingling his tags.

Still so strange ...

I have been there. That eerie feeling eventually goes away. Hang in there my brother. It will go away.

      Good hearing from you, always enjoyed reading of you & Doc's adventures.
    • leech~~
      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!
    • JTeeth
      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.

      Heading up to Beacon Harbor tomorrow for a couple days. Hopeful for decent weather and hungry fishes!  
    • troutman72
      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      keep me posted I'm from ny and planning a trip in February  
    • Rick
      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately. 
    • monstermoose78
      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
