      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 .

Minor surgery done while fishing

Mike and I did the finger lakes today with marginal success. I did manage to hook a huge 165 pounder, me.. Blugill came up, took a swipe but let go, the jig propelled upward at a high velocity and smack dab into one of my fingers. Buried the barb all the way in and deep. ****, now what am I going to do with the rest of the day to go with a jig implanted in my hand. I remembered a fishing video I had seen some time back about how to remove a hook from your flesh.
Grabbed a bungy cord hook, drapped it around the embedded shank, pressed down on the hook and told Mike, don't whimp out on me, on the count of three, give the cord hook a fast and good snap. He said, are you sure? I pressed down on the hook, counted to three, Mike snapped the jig cleanly from the finger. Only a couple drops of blood.
If any of you haven't seen this proceedure, best do so, cause you never know.

Boyz in the Woods

A few years ago I was fishing the middle branch of the White Water with a few family memebers and I hooked a big brown trout. It ran me up and down the river a few times before I got it landed. After the excitment was over I looked down and saw I had a big rusty hook stuck in the calf of my leg.
The first thing I thought of was pushing it through then cutting the barb off. One little push changed my mind. That would really hurt!
Then I remembered the loop of line trick. I put a loop of line around the hook at the bend then pressed the eye of the hook hard into my skin. One little tug and the hook came right out. A little antibiotic ointment and a check to see when I had my last tetanus shot and it was all over.

It's an easy trick that works well.

Yes, I was pleasantly surprized just how fast and painless this proceedure worked.
The line in the loop believe it or not is exactly what hospital ER's use to remove hooks from patients. However, no cute nurses out in the wild.

Gotta keep an eye on Boyz... he's always getting things stuck in him. Back when we were kids he had to have a bullhead spine cut out of his hand after it went through one finger and into another. And don't let him handle an ax, either!! wink.gif
