      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 .

I would highly recommend the Cabelas Master Guide Hunting Boot. 600 Grams. I bought these for steep country in Idaho and they were fantastic. My feet were fine all day long in these. I now where them for all sorts of hunting. You can get them for $99.95 right now online, that's what I paid for them in the store a couple of years ago and I'm thinking about buying another pair in case they stop making them for some reason. You'll really like the instep lacing they have on them.

Here's the review I wrote for Cabela's on their "Snow Squall" boot, which has now become the "Snowy Range":

Best Boot I've Ever Owned, December 5, 2006

By shiner2367 from Duluth, MN

"During a preseason stop at Cabelas to find a pair of boots I came across the Snow Squall. I compared them to other boots on the shelves and found them to be slightly lighter and have more Thinsulate than others in the same price point. These boots have beat all the expectations that I had for them. I used them in CO for 3rd season elk with over a foot of snow on the second day of camp. I walked all day, up and over ridges and through meadows tracking elk and never got cold or wet feet. On the last day we were lucky enough to get an elk, but were well over a mile from the truck and it was straight down to Red Sandstone Creek and then straight up the other side. After 4 trips to get the elk packed out (and four times crossing the creek with quarters on our backs) my feet were as dry as when I had put them on that morning and my partner's feet were soaked. These are without a doubt the best boots I have ever owned. Thanks for a great product!"

I hunted Colorado last fall and purchased the Danner Pronhorn's 400gram. I don't have good circulation either and these boot served me just fine. Last week Gander Mountain had these boots on sale for 20% off.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
