      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 .

Nice idea Chris. The help is certainly needed. My family just went for a drive and followed the track of the storm from Nicollet to just E of Cleveland and it is unbelievable. Complete and total destruction. Very devastating. I can assure you people will not be turning down help for months on end.

I realize many people in the areas hit by the storm may not have phone or internet access, but the lucky ones who do if you can pass on our offers and well wishes.

LIke Jamison said, this will not be a weekend affair. I am available saturday and then more available in sept.

I spent the day at a friend that stores my fishhouse in the summer. What a mess. The house is totaled and lots of trees down It is nice to see all the people that came out to help today. But as sure as the sun will come up tomorrow, people will be back out to help out, if not there down the road to the next place. This will take along time. There are still alot of down power line, some roads are closed yet.

I know there was a thread on here of people willing to help down in southern Minnesota.

Just now on the radio they were begging for volunteers. If your willing to help out some fellow MN people, you are supposed to go to the Cleavland City Fire Hall and bring gloves.

Thanks to all who donate their time now in a time of need!

I just heard about this yesterday as my wife and I were up on Vermilion with not much contact back home. My sympathies go out to those affected. Sounds like one of my co-workers in Nicollet might have been affected, but I haven't heard much.

Hope everyone is doing as well as can possibly be.

Last night, one of the news stations said NOT to show up at fire halls as they are not set up to handle volunteers. Instead, they listed an 800 number to call if you wanted to help.(Sorry, I do not remember the # or station that said it)

I was just relaying what I saw on TV. They specifically said NOT to go to the fire hall because they were not set up to handle the volunteers. Not trying to ruffle any feathers.-Later!

I spent some time down there this afternoon just cruising from home site to home site, helping out where I could without getting in the way. I'll tell you, each time I see the damage, I am more and more amazed at the power of such a storm. My heart definitely goes out to the folks that lost everything. There are places I still can't believe are gone.

I have a good friend that lost everything but the basement in that tornado! He has two sons, with the oldest being 18 months old.......I know his family would appreciate anything to help out! And when I say he lost everything he lost everything! The tornado picked his lab up out of the basement and carried him away. Miraculously his family wasnt harmed but for a few bumps and bruises! For those of you that have been by there, his house was the one on the top a hill just East of the big log house. There was more than likely a excavator near his basement.

With all the help, it's looking like something is getting done. Lots of people need help still. Still alot of things to get out of the fields.III still can't get over all the fires and piles of stuff by the roads. Some of the stories you get to hear is unreal. The best one yet is the well pump was pulled out of the casing, from a couple hunderd feet down and the dog at the trainer that was found 2 1/2 mlies away, not a hair out of place, a few hours after the storm.

I talked to my sister today,her friend found a letter in her yard to a person in St Peter. She is going to return it herself just to meet the person. This should been interesting.

I've got a co-worker who lives in Nicollet that told me when the sirens were going off, he was looking out the window and out of the corner of his eye he saw something lift up in the air. He looked and kitty-corner across the street from his house a piece of plywood began to "float" up in the air. Floated up to just above the trees and then wooosh...it got sucked straight up into the sky. He took his wife and baby and jetted to the basement after that. smirk.gif They were lucky though. They only lost 4 trees (which he said is weird because he can see everything now), had some minor damage to the railing on his deck, and had a neighbors swing set go through his garage door.

Slab Slayer,

Reading your post pulls at the heart strings. We have 2 boys that are 4 & 2, so we have a lot of clothes that you friend can have. We also have an extra crib if they need it. If you would like to get sizes or just have your freind call and let us know what else they could use, we will do our best to find it. my phone is 507-324-5558 we will be up that way this weekend.

Please let us know what they need.

Ike

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Caught some gills this was the first one

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"  
    • tacklejunkie
      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
