      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.

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.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
