      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 am getting married in two days. My friends tell me that she will lock me in a cage so I guess I won't get to talk to you guys as much. HAHA Actually I am excited! We are getting married on Friday at 5:00. Looks like we will have nice weather. Wish me luck!

Later,

Nate

PS...any words of advice for the wedding/reception?

Enjoy the mariage even if the wedding is boring and tiring.

make sure she can go shopping so you can go fishing. If she can shop at a sporting goods store the better.

You are registered at Cabelas arent you?

I am sure you found the right girl Nate. I got married in April and it is great. The biggest problem I have is trying to find time to fish with the jsut the guys. The wife is always bugging me to take her. What a problem, huh?

Good luck and enjoy it all.

Thanks everyone! No I didn't register at Cabela's...I wish I had though. Oh well. I registered for a bunch of tools at Sears so that is the coolest stuff we will get I am sure.

That is for sure! Duck hunting could be interesting...I usually go almost every weekend. I will try to make it up to her during the off season.

The best to you and yours.

Fortunately I married a gal that loves to fish and be out of doors.

Best advice I can give you is in my signature line smile.gif

Good luck Nate. Marriage is a good thing. Just spend time with her or let her go out and do something on her own. Time apart isn't a bad thing as long as you have time together.

If she has put up with your hunting and fishing this long, she still should after the left handed ring goes on.

As far as the night, it will go faster than you think, take it all in and enjoy the night. You can try to talk to everone that came but it will never happen so take it as it comes and be sure to remember its your (your and hers) night.

To all the single guys, I usually say:

"Get married, why should you be happy"?

I have always tried to 'compromise' in my marriage and that worked pretty good. My best advice would be: always keep the lines of communication open. There isn't enough space on the server to give you all the advice I have on this thread, so I guess it'll be a real journey for you two. You two will figure it out on your own.

God bless and good luck.

Good luck. Did you hear they have linked a food that is associated with decline of a woman's s*x drive? It is called wedding cake. DON'T LET HER EAT IT!

Congrats and the Best of Luck to the both of you. I have been married for 33 years and hunt and fish more than I ever have. Just remember that she also has needs to and just dont think that the hunting and fishing is everything.

Like Dietz stated, Keep the booze to a minimum and make your first day together a great one and she will also remember that. Its a two way street for it to work and it can be wonderfull.

A few words of wisdom that have been handed down to me. If mama ain't happy, nobody's happy. Next, don't attempt to bank brownie points because just one "oh sh!t" will wipe out all brownie points you have saved.

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
    • Finnish Flash
      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.   
    • cookie129
      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
