      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 .

Every time i go to open my email in Gmail, i get a PETA link at the top that says it is a sponsored link from google that says: "Fishing Hurts - FishingHurts.com - If you wouldn't impale a dog in the mouth, why do it to a fish?" Suffice it to say i have sent a rather negative email aboot this to google and will no longer be using any of their services.

Because, Dog does not taste quite as good as fish! blush.gifblush.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Much like dogs...peta leaves a bad taste in my mouth. shocked.gif

That last statement does not reflect the thoughts and feelings of the guy that wrote it, it was only meant to make a point. The point is fish taste better than dogs, (this is an assumption based on pure speculation) ...I am not entirely religious but, I had to go to church growing up, I do not recall Jesus feeding his followers puppy. confused.gifconfused.gifconfused.gif

Who feeds these people? confused.gif

I don't know, dog tastes pretty good. The Phillipino's I knew always made a nice meal of dog around Christmas time.

Did you know that there were foreign-owned plants in this country that process horse meat for sale overseas?

Anyone up for a good laugh do a search for people eating tasty animals, open their site go to the bottom and read some of their hate mail. I have been laughing for 20 minutes. One warning though, be prepared for uncensored bad language.

I'm not sure what happened but I just checked my gmail account and the google homepage and I have seen nothing like that which you describe. Not that I doubt what you are reporting but for me, I have not seen anything like that on any of their pages.

The only thing on my Gmail page is an ad for discount props. I use google as my home page and have nothing there.

One thing, gmail and google scan your searches and text for keywords to target ads to you. So, if you've been typing "peta" a lot (for positive or negative) you're showing a preference. That may be why it is coming up?

Sure your choice, but google is the best, hands down, they are teh only internet company that hasn't bowed to government pressure, and are fighting to keep uncle sam from seeing everything you do, atleast they are making it much harder.

That and I guess I surf enough I just totally ignore all adds. grin.gif

BOBBO,

CAN YOU LOOK UP FISHING ON GOOGLE?

WHO CARES WHAT THE HE-- THEY THINK,ARE THEY A FISH? HOW DO THEY KNOW WHAT A FISH FEELS? SEND THEM THE LATEST PICS OF YOUR CATCH AND MAKE SURE YOU SHOW THEM THAT ARROW STICKING OUT OF THAT DEERS FRONT QUARTER AFTER YOUR LATEST HUNTING TRIP. THESE PEOPLE HAVE MORE SYMPATHY FOR FISH THEN OUR BOYS IN IRAQ.

the reason you get those adds on google are because they scan your e-mails and in turn post advertisments above your inbox that are matched to common topics in your e-mail. That is the reason why you get all of that mailbox storage for free. Someone has to pay for it. I would rather have it be the advertisers rather than me. It is very easy to ignore the adds. That is my 2 cents.

That's probably an even better reason to avoid using GMail. However, I believe Yahoo does similar things.

I just read the hate mail on the People Eating Tasty Animals web site. It's hilarious. Had to forward to all the hunting and fishing people I know.

I didn't find the hate email but I was reading through their sites.

Can you imagine what kind of life you have to live if you are completely into it (and you have to otherwise it's hypocracy).

No meats, no milk/dairy, no medicines, no animal fibers, etc., nothing. You practically revert to prehystorical stage and still cannot make it without animal product consumption.

That's really incredible how some notorious people stands behind this, and you thought they were smart.....

Yeah, it's pretty easy to see what going without all those things does to your brain. No wonder they have to rely on PETA for support. Don't step on a garden slug, it may be a PETA member. smirk.gifcrazy.gif

well in theory these peta people shouldn't be driving cars. Since they don't agree with the use of any animal product that should prevent them from using any oil based product such as gasoline or plastic since oil is produced from the decayed remains of plants and animals.

I am sure some wacked out PETA person is crying over a dead dinosour who died 10 million years ago and whose body became the fuel that they are using to get to another nut job convention.

I'd like to see them refusing to enter ER/hospital after an accident or serious illness because they use animal tested medicines..... if they all did it there will be no more Peta people.... grin.gif

I bet they still wear leather shoes though. Hypocrites! They are well funded, dangerous to the outdoor way of life, and think that we are barbaric.

Personally, I try not to support those who support them. Remember that next time you go to a movie, watch TV, or buy music. Enough of that, I need to wash my deer hunting clothes, and cook some walleyes for dinner. I wonder what they would think of that.

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff
    • TomWehler
      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!
    • seifjr
      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.
    • guideman
      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
