      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 .

Raw Diets

Anyone feeding this and what do you think? I was at the pet expo yesterday and after talking to many food manufacters pushing grain free food. Stating that is how a dog is meant to be fed. These cereal foods that we all are feeding actually suit us better. AKA coinveinence. Than I ran into a raw food company and they were saying that most dog allergies are to the grains. After switching to a Raw diet these will totally disapear. Dogs are nothing more than a Dimesticated Wolf, or Coyote. They need to be fed that way. What does every one think about this?

There are benefits and drawbacks to any kind of diet you feed. Commercial diets have the added benefit of being a balanced diet, meaning it has all of the vitamins, minerals and nutrients needed to keep your dog healthy. Dogs (both wild and domestic) are more omnivorous than once believed. Wild canines, just like your dog, will munch on grass, and not just because it's going to rain or it wants to throw up as in the old wive's tales. Typically wild dogs get their "veggies" by eating the stomach contents of their prey. While it is true that many dogs are allergic to grains, many dogs are also allergic to meats. My dog is allergic to rice, corn, wheat, potatoes, beef, lamb, and poultry (chicken, duck and turkey). Feeding table scraps can cause allergies. My dog's previous owner screwed her up that way.

Raw diets can help some dogs that have allergies. The drawback is that they are a pain in butt to make yourself. It can be very time consuming and expensive. They have to be made fresh or freshly frozen and thawed. You also have to make sure you add all the other vitamins etc. to make it a balanced diet. You can't use poor quality meats. More raw diets are available commercially now which can make it easier and more convenient. I know Natural Balance makes a raw diet. Raw diets also increase the chance of food poisoning. Yes animals, including wild ones, get sick and die from food poisoning.

Basically it is up to you what you want to feed. My dog with all her allergies is still fed a high quality commercial dry dog food. Fish and Sweet Potato. Single protien, single carbohydrate. I recommend staying away from the cheap dog food. You get what you pay for.

I could go on and on about food so I'll stop now. Good luck making a decision. If your dog isn't having any problems, I wouldn't change its diet.

Oh, in addition to being a soldier, I also manage the nutrition department at a major zoo and I'm a veterinary technician, so I'm not talking out of my butt.

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
