      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 don't know if this has been covered, but this is a fantastic book. I got it for Christmas and is a MUST READ for everyone that loves their pets. Especially if you have a lab.

I Lost my 12-year old yellow to a tumor last fall, if you guys remember and I have an almost two-year-old yellow that is also a GREAT dog. Reading this books takes me back to both of them and even a little of my childhood. It is a cleaver and fast read.

Pick up this book and you will laugh and cry -- many times.

I almost exclusively like fiction, but this book is awesome.

I read it last year, and you are right, it was a great read.

I found myself laughing so much and yep even a little teary at the end. If you have ever owned a lab, you can relate to almost every single thing in this book.

Seems like every other paragraph I am telling my wife something in the book. She finally told me not to tell her anymore abecause she is going to read it and I am driving her nuts.

Well, that is my job.

I have also read it. Funny how destructive they can be! My roommate is reading it now and I'll probably read it again once he's done with it.

A movie? That is pretty cool.

It will be interesting to see if the movie can be as good or better than the book -- because you know what they say ... book is always better.

I just picked up this book on the recommendations posted here. I will be reading it soon. I read the overview on the cover and it sounds hauntingly familiar to what my wife and I went through 3 short years ago... Looking forward to a good read.

You will love it. I am rationing the book just a few pages every couple of nights. A LOT of fun.

I am over halfway, and I laugh out loud -- bus the wife until she starts reading 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

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
