      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 .

Got a buddy getting married this fall. Loves hunting!!! Has a dog. Hunts mostly waterfowl, some phesant, a little deer. Question is what is that one or two gadgets/toy's that you wish you had or do have that normaly you would not have spent the money on but now just love it! Remember he hunts everything...boat stuff, dog stuff, gun stuff, at home hunting stuff....

$400.00 or less because you only get married a couple times in your life. grin.gif

Lets hear some good ideas!

Thanks!

At the Tracy sports show this past summer I bought the coolest thing that he would dig. It's a magnet gun holder thingy. It's made out of foam and formed to fit 8 guns. It holds to the side of the pickup with a magnet.

No more leaning shotguns up against the tailgate, truck bed, etc. Set the butt on the ground and the barrell in the foam thing. It's pretty cool.

I don't know the name of it, but I have the contact info on the box at home. My e-mail is in my address. Drop me a mail if you want the contact info.

How about a nice GPS - if he does not have one.

If his wife agrees how about a hunting trip that you two take - ND pheasant or huck hunting.

If it was me, a case of Hevi Shot would be great.

How about a gift card to mount his next Trophy (Deer, pheasant or duck). That way you both can hunt together for it.

I would say a new nice gas grill. I bought a nice grill a couple years ago and just love the thing. I hate having to cook on other peoples cheap, flame thrower grills. Buy a quility grill that will last for a while like a Weber stainless. You should be right in that $400 area.

Since he is a hunter you know he likes the backstrap on the grill and it will last longer than the case of heavy shot.

Not sure if he has one, but a range finder is a nice thing that you don't NEED but is cool to have. For what its worth, I found the wider ones seem to work better than the taller narrow (newer style) ones, though they are a bit larger. Roughly about $250 for a pretty darn nice one. Deer hunting can use it, duck hunting (ranging your decoy set is very enlightening!) or just plain goofing around with it. Not to mention sighting in gun out in the prairie away from a range - you know know exactly where 150 yards is smile.gif

Great ideas! That gun rest "thingy" sounds like a less expensive gift to go along with a higher priced one. A new gun is so personal. I would pull a gun and love it and he pulls it up and hates it. I was thinking of a real nice duck call. One of those could run $150.00. maybe another to personal item? What do Nightvision binocs/camera go for?

Keep the ideas comming.

I bought the new Moutrie 4.0 IR flash camera and so far I really like it. Takes good quality pics, seems to be a quick trigger time and overall seems to be a great camera!! I am actually thinking about selling my other 2 flash cameras and buying another IR one. I think it cost me 220 from Cabelas.

A few things he might not buy himself but love to have. A new duck call and goose call around the $120.00 range. A good filler with them a few boxes of one of the high density shells out there.

you should check out C&S calls in zumbrota mn, he makes some awsome looking duck/goose calls and can have them engraved, maybe with a wedding date or his new brides name??

      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
    • cookie129
      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.    
    • ZachD
      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early
    • ZachD
      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.
    • PRO-V
      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.
    • fish_hunt_guy
      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.
