      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 .

My new Springer

I'm pretty excited. I just picked up this boy from Sand Creek Springers. I'm happy to be working with the breeder with my training in the near future. Lots of good dogs come from him.

I just wanted to drag and brag. 9 weeks old - 1st week with me and he "Hups" like a champ!

His name is Maynard.

He looks like a very sharp lad. Ready to run like his tail is on fire. I love that look.

I know alot of the dogs that come out of that kennel and I don't think you will be disappointed with his performance.

Have fun and welcome to the good side grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Fantastic dog. My springer has several generations of Sand Creek in him. They are great folks down there.

I'm not real comfortable sharing what I paid - although I can tell you that I think that he charges around 800.00 or so depending on the stock it's from. I do know he has some puppies right now that he's anxious to sell since it is field trial season. He should have black/white and liver/white males left.

Thanks for all the great comments - this is my first Springer, and I can't believe how smart they are. Doesn't look like they need a heavy hand - they are very eager to please.

Nice looking pup. Here is a few pictures of my new springer Jasmine. I just got her last week from Pine Shadows. She is 11 weeks old. She is the one on the right. This is my first one too. I can't wait til next year when I have her out hunting. They are an awesome breed. I grew up with one, when I was a child.

Bill will treat you right at Sand Creek. My dad and I used to train down there two or three times a week and also ran field trails with Sand Creek Dogs. Mine is 12 and still hunts and is also an FC that Bill trained and ran.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!

      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
