      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 .

The four guys fishing Red were bemoaning the things they had to do in order to get outa the house. The first says he's gotta paint the whole place when he gets home! The second say's he's stuck doing the soccer dad thing for a whole month! The third moans that he gets stuck hand tillin the whole freaking garden this year! The fourth guy just jigs away silently. The others start in on him figuring it has to be REALLY bad, he just jigs away, but finally admits it's costing him the big 0 on Honey Do's.
How can this be??? the others ask? He replys "Simple, I set the alarm for 4:30AM, when it went off I tapped her awake and asked, OK honey, fishing or sex? She said "Wear a Sweater honey".

ST,
It appears that somehow you've attained my secret recipe for obtaining permission from headquarters. Usually when I get to the house cleaning step, my wife realizes what I'm up to and sends me on my way.

JiggleStick,
It's been said that its easier to beg for forgiveness than to obtain permission in the first place. Why don't you try this one out and let us all know how it goes wink.gif

surface--
she got a dozen flowers when each of the kids were born. i'll be go ta hell if i'm gonna have any more kids just so i can go fishin'.
i'll be trying the look. we allready discussed that(it usually works).
good idea on the cleaning the house thing. i'll have the kids get started right away!
i will not beg.
she got her gift last night smile.gif
i could tell her i'm trying to change,but she would die laughing---hey....nope,better not.
can't afford to drink anyway.
none of her friends would side w/me unless they wanted her to get away for self motivated reasons. in which case i'd end up watching the little ones frown.gif .
now that kicked out of the house thing is right up my alley. the trick is to get an extra 30 bucks in my pocket before i piss her off.
maybe i could have a friend of mine beg for me???
she gets off at 3 i'll know by 4 or shortly after. take notes guys.
nibbler--- she always kicks my @$$ fishing. thats nothing new. but i allways catch one bigger, just for my self esteem. the real problem here is that i didn't pace myself very well this winter, and my just for fishing fund just went dry. now i'm trying to tap into her "not for fishing fund"
i can do this--------jigglestick-----------

I have been at the wife and fishing thing for 25 years. This works, but it takes some time to setup.

When she puts up a stink about you going fishing stay home and be a miserable SOB for a few days. Whine, mope and make sure she knows that your buddies are having a great time and and your are not, and that it's her fault. After a few episodes of that she won't want you around if you would rather be fishing. Guilt works!!!

Now days if I want to go fishing she packs the lunch. smile.gif

I always tell my younger fishing friends that once you have some grandchildren your wife won't care where you go, how often or when. They like being with the little ones that much. Then when the grandkids get big enough to take fishing Grandma will pack the lunch for sure. I have 3 so far that like to fish, all our kids do too. It helps to not have work to interfere. Stan C.

      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.

      if it ever comes down to those 2 choices for you, do the eye thing. Cant fish with you if yer dead.

      Looks like Big Bay is still open, so I don't think I'll be ice fishing Thanksgiving Day weekend.  I'm guessing the Big Bay will freeze this Sunday or Tuesday.  Lake should be walkable by December 2 when I plan to go up.

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.
