      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 .

You are obviously invoking the 48 hr rule grin.gif I almost got caught when mine noticed the color screen on the h2o c, "umm, never noticed that before" she said. whew! close one there. The regular h2o was a birthday present she spent alot of time picking out. I didn't have the heart, at the time, to tell her I really wanted the color.

your secret is safe with me. Besides it would take quite the wife to figure out how to get this far in the forum. I feel the need to go to confession... well not quite, A sportsman dose what he has to I guesse. At least were not tapping into the kid's college fund.... Heeyy..... oopps bad idea. Boar

Boar, the 4.0 is infared as well if that makes a difference. Moultrie came out with two new models, the 4.0 and the 6.0, both of which are no flash infared cameras. Great bang for the buck compared to many of the other companies. Good luck!

I'm not even going to tell you what I did, she'd kill me if she found out, but it involves a new benelli. When we got married I had 3 guns, I'm up to nine, she is none the wiser. I think that they are reproducing. Good luck with the trail cam. The cabela's merchandise money can be a good deal, I got 100 bucks in free merchandise.

Boar, i just bought 2 I 40's and LOVE Them. Got some great pics from Ont. on a bait site. Moultrie used there heads when they made this camera.

I just got a set of Nikon Monarch Binoculars this weekend. My wife came home to find me playing with them. Of course she came through the front door instead of the garage, otherwise I would have heard the garage door and been able to hide them. I was in it deep, so I replied, honey you need to back up I can't focus in on you at this distance. She is nine months pregnant and didn't think it was as funny as I did. I almost got smacked.

The short story 'gun running' by Patrick McManus should be required reading for all those interested in acquiring new firearms. I think it was in the book "Grasshopper Trap", circa mid-1980's.

She started laughing. She has a good sense of humor about it, but there were a few seconds in there where I thought my life might be over. Lets just say it cost me though. We went shopping for cloths for her and the baby the rest of the day.

I take the safe way out. I ask her for everything!! If she says no I ask again later. cool.gif I learn that from my 6 and 9 year old.

If I happen to buy something out of "need" or I just see something I always tell her ASAP. She is going to find out anyway.

There was one time I bought $80 of discounted fishing lures I forgot about. I asked her if I could go get some Fishing lures and she replies with... "Why not pretend to go, walk into the computer room and pull out the (insert naughty word here) bag from the LAST TIME!" It was like Christmas all over again!

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
