      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 .

I would like to apoligize as I will be mostly off line for the next week or two.

I just moved and the phone company needs a 911 adress to hook me up. Well the new place doesn't have one yet so I need to call the county...but not until after the sheriff department puts in their two cents so the mapping guys can come out and map the new road. Of course now you have to name the road before the county can make it a road so they can asign 911 numbers. Once this is done the numbers have to be registered...then...the phone company calls the county to verify the adress and 911 number. Then I can apply for new service that should take one to three weeks to hook up.

So after I call my rep who calls congress then contacts the president and notifys the govener to parden my computer and house so I may have internet I will be back on line and trying to answer questions as the ice slowly creeps across the lake.

Until then I will keep highjacking wireless bands and try to pop in every couple days.

I'm getting closer!!! I have an adress with 911 numbers and everything, now I have to meet with a guy to make sure they can get the service in, then the crew comes to run the cable and I have to meet them....then the last guy comes to hook it all up. This should take two to three weeks and I will get to meet the entire phone company! wink.gif

Definetly a spin on "We can hook you up in two maybe three days" I heard weeks ago. confused.gifsmirk.gif

SOON very soon. Looks like Monday we will be returning to our regularly scheduled programming!

Probably a good thing as I have not looked out from under a welding hood in a couple of days anyways. No time for internet or TV sure makes for alot of time to build super~plow trucks.

Heck I even read a book this week! wink.gif

...and we are back!

This is awesome! I checked the weather, read my emails, watched the news on TV and even answered my first phone call. Pretty cool even if it was a wrong number.

I have to admit the guys at the phone company had to run circles today but they got it done.

I understand not coming up from under a welding hood, but you read a book???

Please tell me it was "The history of battle," or "The book of meat." or " The big dang book of sheer manliness." or a tech manual, or a Chiltons manual.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.
