      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 .

Hope your recovery goes well there Jon, you don't need that organ anyway. grin.gif

Sure hurts like a SOB when an appendicitis attack comes on, yikes! Had mine out about 3 1/2 years ago now.

They asked me to rate my pain in the ER on a scale of 1 to 10. Even though I replied 10, I still wasn't a priority there.

I thought I had a stomach ache that wouldn't go away, next thing I know I'm in the dang hospital again.

Pretty amazing what they can do now days, three little punch holes in my belly and that is it in and out in one night.

Better now then later I guess. I'm have been getting ready for early ice pike fishing, rigging tip-ups, checking over portables so on and so forth so good to get it out of the way now instead of big pike time.

Should of had yours removed in 3rd grade like I did. Was at home for 2 days after it exploded before I couldn't walk any more then decided i'd better tell mom to take me to the hospital.

Happy Recovering!!

I got a 4" scar on my gut where they took mine out, and if memory serves me it was like 3 days in the hospital. Sounds like they are a bit better at it these days.

Good thing they got it before ice fishings season grin.gif

Get better soon Jon. Red Lake needs you.

You don't need that particular organ any. Just takes up more space. If I had to find a bright side in it, I'd say you can now eat more. grin.gifcrazy.gif

I can't even see the scars where they went in to take mine out. I think I had 3 small 1/2" incisions. They send a camera in the one incision and the other tools in the other incisions. In and out of the hospital in 1 day with about 2-3 days at home recovering. Its really wasn't that bad.

Being a "tough guy" and not recognizing the pain is what will get you in trouble. I had a horrible gut/side ache that I kept trying to walk off thinking it would go away. It never did. Finally took a couple buddies to tell me I looked like crap and should get to the ER. Glas I listened to them.

Hope all is well Jon, the deer are waiting for you on one of you rice beds. They are in rut now, so hopefully you can go and shoot a nice one! Glad to hear you are doing fine, and maybe send the women down to Bemidji to get you some NEEDED gear for early ice! When they return leave a note saying a buck was grunting and running around the house so you had to go take care of him so he doesn't get dizzy! grin.gif

I know but they wouldn't let me have it! Told me it has to be checked for bad stuff then disposed of properly. Figure the dang thing cost me enough money I should get to keep it.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      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!
