      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 .

A Baby and two Dogs???

Recommended Posts

The_King48

We currently have a shorthair pointer/ridgeback mix and are considering getting a lab puppy but we are also considering starting a family in the next year. How will the dogs react to a baby especially if we have two instead of one? Any advice on waiting to get a second dog? I am already concerned about how the first one will react....Thanks in advance..

imo i dont think u will have a problem with the fact of having two dogs but i dont think u should wait to get a puppy tho. If u get it in the near future u will have time to get it past all the puppy stages, for example the jumping, scratching, and biting. These are all curiable but u know they are going to do it a couple of times while ur teaching it not to and the best time to do that is without a baby around. just my opinion

I've raised my kids and now Grandkids. Get the new dog as soon as you can if you are thiking about getting another dog. You will have time to get used to the dogs being togehter and the kids will fall into line when they come. Your dog is like a kid, they need a lot of atention the first year. CAJ

Every kid should grow up with a dog and every dog should grow up with a kid. My lab mix raised 3 kids and unknown number of frogs, turtles, cats, snakes, etc.

The previous posters are correct. If you plan on a puppy, get it and get it out of it's puppy stage before you have a baby. Once out of the puppy stage you will be absolutely amazed how a dog warms up to a child. Treat them all as family.

Make sure you have plenty of film in the camera cuz there will be a LOT of kodak moments.

Another benefit is that when you need to take care of the baby, the dogs can go entertain themselves. You won't have one dog always at your heels begging for attention. Throw a rope or ball out and let them wrestle for it.

Definately get the dog long before you have a kid. I made the mistake of getting a puppy 2 mos after my second daughter was born. It was hard to give the puppy all the attention she deserved.

Get the dog. Have the kid. They will all be buds.

Thanks, I can't take the credit for it though. My wife took the picture last fall.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      Roughly 11inches... there were a few brave people who drove mini vans out

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      Hey all, I am looking to catch a decent perch in the 7" or bigger range and soon because in my class at school we get to taxidermy a fish and I would like to do a yellow perch, I have fished little Pulaski for 2 days and Buffalo for one and caught nothing on Buffalo lake and some bluegills and bass on little pulaski. Anyone got advice on spots in little Pulaski or Buffalo lake or just another lake near by Buffalo as well for perch? Thanks - jim
