      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 .

Underwood's Finest!!!!!

I'm not sure why the Da Ranger didn't get in the pictures...

Made the AP wire yippy!!!

This article is on the star and trib website, some great pictures

UNDERWOOD, Minn. — Firefighters in the western Minnesota town of Underwood weren't quite sure what to expect when they got the call: A donkey had fallen down an abandoned well and was trapped.

Firefighters quickly realized that the donkey, that belonged to farmer Warren Gundberg who lived about a mile away, couldn't be pulled from the abandoned well on Bryan Nelson's land.

So they started pulling away earth with a Bobcat tractor and dismantling the well block by block on Thursday.

Once the west wall of the well had been taken apart, firefighters put a harness around the donkey and guided it out with a rope.

"Whatever it takes,'' Nelson said as he watched his well come down. "I love animals and I'm just glad it's OK.''

Underwood Fire Chief Bruce Huseth said he's rescued cows that have fallen through the ice, but never a trapped donkey. It appeared the donkey wandered away from its farm and onto some boards covering the well, which broke, he said.

The donkey had some bruises and lost some fur where it rubbed against the concrete walls of the well, but was otherwise fine.

After the animal was out and eating eat grass in a neighbor's yard, Gundberg led it home with a makeshift leash.

"I bet you'll think twice about doing that again,'' he said to the donkey. "If you would have stayed home you wouldn't be in this trouble.

Underwood is about 10 miles east of Fergus Falls in western Minnesota.

I was jolted out a solid sleep last night when I heard a familiar voice coming over the television news (KSTP). It was the Underwood fire chief!

This morning, I googled it and the story is in a LOT of newpapers and websites across the country. I love it!

Well, I see in today's Star Tribune that PETA had given the Underwood Fire Department kudos for their donkey rescue.

Don't worry, I wont tell them what you guys do with your spare time when you are not on rescue missions.... wink.gif

Can someone ask these guys to show up in camo w/ duck calls and deer antlers to the awards ceremony? Maybe turn down the PETA "award?"

      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
