      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 .

Take time to hug your family!! Bus tragedy

Recommended Posts

fishinchicks

The bus my kid's normally would ride is the bus that is on the news right now. We only know that two of our cousin's kids are in the hospital, but the third one is ok. There was at least one student killed today.

For those of you who are the praying kind, there were 40 kids on that bus, and a couple of other cars involved. They could all use all they prayers they could get.

You had better believe that I have hugged my daughters today! I picked them up from school about the time the fire department went out.

It is with a heavy heart that I type right now. Our cousin's child, our godchild, was the student who was killed in the bus accident today. She was adopted from China as a 10 month old, and was currently in fourth grade. She will be missed!

Our kids also go to Lakeview and thankfully wern't on that bus route. Several of their friends and classmates were however. It seems one more may have died and some more flown out. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the kids and their families. Don't forget to hug your volunteer fire and ambulance crews also, as they put their lives in danger and on hold in tradegies like this.

We have heard about the others. There are two brothers who are both gone, and one other boy. Two were 7th graders, one a 5th grader and our godchild a 3rd grader (I mistyped her grade before). Our cousin's boy that was injured is on his way to Sioux Falls by amb. to get some possible glass removed from his eye. He also has a broken finger, and multiple bumps and scrapes on one side. We are thankful he will be alright.

Thanks for the prayers everyone! I believe that is the only thing keeping the family going right now.

Carolyn, to say I'm sorry would be an understatement in the worst way. I'm at a loss for words for your families loss. My condolences, and prayers go out to your family and all involved.

My kids were supposed to have a game there tonight. I found out about it when my oldest son called and said their bus got turned around, and then told me why.

If you, or your family want or need anything, my e-mail is in my profile. Do not hesitate to contact me.

I just got chills when I read this. I can't tell you how bad I feel for you and your family. I will be thinking of you. I'm also on my way to pick up my daughter and will give her a huge hug.

As said before, children should never pass away.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.
    • NELS-BELLS
      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels
    • Wanderer
      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.
    • FirstIce
      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.
    • icepike 1
      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck. 
    • Billy G
      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
