      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 .

Hey guys- I was just wondering if anyone has heard of any positions around the area for a soon to be graduated UMD business management major. It's been kind of slow going for me so far and if you have any "hot tips" for a fellow outdoorsman it would be much appreciated. I'll also keep my eye on the job ops. thread.

Thanks, Cameron

Cameron McDonalds on London Road is hiring. grin.gif

Seriously good luck finding a job in your field in Duluth. I hope you can and get to stay around "Gods Country". I hate to see young guys like yourself having to move to the Twin Cities and elsewhere to get a decent job in their field!

The last time I graduated from college (assoc. degree)(and I ain't really young either) I wound up moving further north to find a decent job(used to live in Duluth), never figured that would happen. I really figured that if I couldn't find something in Duluth I would be metro bound. Strange how somethings work cool.gif

lol- thanks Northlander, I'll have to look into mcdonalds, maybe there is a possible career position for me there. I already told myself that I am going to stay out of the cities, I never grew up there and I don't want to ever live there. I think I'm going to try to tough it out and find something in the area. grin.gif

The job I landed just kind of happened by chance. It allowed me to enjoy Duluth for 4 more years!

Good luck to you, not a lot of opportunity, but then again if you fall at the right place and right time you just might land yourself a job.

I think this is quite the interesting topic... being that I am the only one of my college friends that stayed in town. It seems that the city doesn't do much to keep it's college students in town. Everyone comes here, goes to school, then leaves. I wonder what can be done?

My son is a freshman at UMD. Doesn't quite know what he wants to do. He writes music plays guitar at some of the restaurants in town. I told him I hope he makes it big so he can pay me back after 12 years of private schooling. smile.gif

He renting a house in Duluth this June and will also be looking for a job. I'll pass this on to him in case he runs across something that might be up your alley.

Good luck tcumd. I am attending UMD right now too, but I won't graduate for at least a year and a half. And I'm still a little scared thinking about finding a job after college.

It can take a bit of a financial sacrifice to live up here in God's Country. I went back to the cities for 6 anguished months before scrambling back up here. I felt lucky to find a low paying job in Duluth. After four years I am on the job hunt as well. If we're lucky there is something that fits our needs and values in life. Good luck, fellas.

Left a good job in the city,

Workin' for The Man ev'ry night and day,

bet I never lost one minute of sleepin',

Worryin' 'bout the way things might have been.

I gotta agree with all of you, growing up "up north" and then moving to the cities to works su cks. mad.gif Once I got my real estate license, I spent 3 months working (if that is what you call it when you live with college kids) in the big market of st. cloud to realize I don't like big cities and I gladly moved back up here to work for a company in northern Minnesota. IMO it is truly the better life.

I graduated from St. Cloud State and ended up moving up here a couple years after that. I work in the IT field, and it really is frustrating. Somehow we still have to pay high rent, but we make 10-15K less here than in St. Cloud. There is a lot more money in the cities, but traffic sucks, haha. And, whoever said that Duluth doesn't keep its students here is right. No one can afford to work up here. I really don't understand it.

No doubt about it the job market in Duluth is not a good one, especially for IT people. I had to move to find decent paying work in the computer/networking field, just didn't figure it would be further north.

The reason the pay is so bad is there a alot of folks looking for the same job and they can pay people less cuz people would rather live in Duluth than in the Twin Cites. Supply and demand, low number of jobs and lots of people applying = low pay frown.gif And it seems that people don't really want to live up here either, we just hired a IT tech person about 7 months back and we had less than 5 people apply. Go figure!

      Hi, I am selling my 2012 Polaris Ranger 800 XP camo. Very low miles, 1200. Full hard cab, flip out glass windshield, windshield wiper, almost like new still. Great for ice fishing, hunting and work around the house.  I also have this ad on C.L.  10,000 b/0 text me for pics, thanks.  I am located in west metro 763-two34-0837

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.
