      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 put my lab against any

in an eating contest!!!

Last weekend, she got a FULL venison sausage log off the counter and put the whole thing down and a stick of butter. Casing, wrapper, and all remnants!!! This isn't a little 12 inch log either. It was one of those Von Hansen logs that are 2+ feet long and 4 inches across. She was busting at the seams, but wanted her breakfast. Thank god she didn't screw herself up. She ended up puking most of it out in chuncks the size of my hand.

I don't know who the bigger idiot is, me for leaving it out to thaw, or her for actually eating all of it.

I have one at home that I would put up against yours. I was at a weekend long bachelor party Mille Lacs this fall and my wife calls freaking out that he just ate a full pan of piping hot chocolate brownies that my wife and 3 year old niece just made. Our niece let him up stairs and he bee-lined for the kitchen and ate the whole pan in about 30 seconds before my wife even realized what was going on. 5 phone calls to our vet and 5 phone calls to me and 5 ounces of hydrogen peroxide later, he has throwing up to the cheers of my wife and my niece. I wasn't there, but I was on the phone for the play by play. Poor Franky was just trying to sneak a little snack grin.gif Got to love those always opportunistic feeding labs! Take ten minutes to finish a bowl of food when you are waiting for them, but can hammer down a pan of brownies or two feet of sausage in no time flat.

nice stories but can you beat this. my lab ate a whole loaf of wheat bread and never puked. that is not the best one. we were in montana visiting family. i was throwing a rubber ball for my dog the ball was the size of a baseball. she was bringing it back when down the throat it went. i called the vet and they told me i needed to make sure she did not stop eating or drinking. two day later when we were leaving i let her out to go the bathroom and and she took a big dump and her body and digested that ball and i looked like a big polish sausage in a casing. honest to god truth. she is a 100 lb female...

My daughter had a 140 pound Lab wander up to her horse farm this summer and adopt her. She named it Shamu, after the killer whale. They can't break it of counter surfing, so all food must be put up high. It scarfed two loaves of french bread in less time than it takes to write this. It also had eaten its regular meal before. Next morning, giant!! shocked.gif dog droppings. She has him on a diet and he's down to 130.

I had a female lab over to my house that was going to be breed with my black lab Rebel. We had the female dog in the garage in one of those plastic kennels. The female dog broke out of the kennel and then proceded to eat AT LEAST 10 lbs of dog food out of the bag the owner had brought with the dog. She did not bother going through the top opening of the bag either. She ripped through the side of the bag and made a big mess.

The dog was bulging out in all directions. My wife had the best quote though. "I hope Rebel likes fat chicks"!

In Christmas of 2006, my chocolate lab wondered over to the neighbors and decided that it would be a good idea to eat the left overs a 12lb turkey that was sitting outside cooling off. thankfully the neighbors had eaten already and it was de-boned. I assume she ate 9 or 10 lbs of turkey. Needless to say she looked like a whale and was sick for around 10 days....

she has eaten a loaf of bread, 10lb bag of dog food and

she loves to get me up at 6:00 in the morning 7 days a week to get her morning meal and then goes back to sleep.

UPDATE: yesterday my daughter's 140 lb. Lab, Shamu, ate most of a 5 pound bag of whole wheat flour. How hungry does a dog have to be to eat something like that? I think he has issues. tongue.gif

Now that's funny right there.

I laughed so hard when I read these posts. One of our labs, Oscar, really isn't a dog, he is an eating machine. When he was a puppy my wife's brother-in-law left the back doors on his Yukon open and Oscar got in, over the back seat and into the front to eat a ton of dog food. His gut was huge and he spent a better part of the day pooping. He has helped himself to cupcakes cooling on the stove, pulled open a bag of dog food to gorge himself on that, and found many bear bait stations when we have been out in the woods (he eats jelly doughnuts like a trucker). The funny thing is he has managed to stay skinny, 85 lbs. grin.gif

If he wasn't such a good friend/hunting partner the cupcake episode might have really ticked me off grin.gif

Went fishing Christmas eve, got a limit of 3/4 pound crappies that I left in a bucket on the deck.

Big mistake! My 1 year old lab must have been pretty hungry,

because he ate them all, plus all the minnows that were on the deck also.

great stories....I have one as well! What do you do with a dog that goes into the clothes basket to steal your sons dirty socks? Horrible habit! She pukes them up in a day or so....yuk!

This past summer I fryed up some fish in a turkey fryer and when I was finished I left the oil outside on the patio to cool. I went to filter it about 2 hours later and found that my pup had eaten/drank all of the oil. It was three gallons of peanut oil crazy.gif. He was fine, but he left one real nasty stain on the carpet where he puked about a gallon or so back up. I hope he learned!

The further adventures of SHAMU!!

On Saturday, my daughter made a batch of bread dough. She had it on the counter to raise and he was able to pull it off and eat it all...including the Saran wrap that was covering it. My daughter is a vet, so she watched him closely for any bad reactions. None. That critter will eat anything. I think we should be worried about the horses and the neighbor kids.

      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.
