      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 .

Cherish the moments....

Recommended Posts

Don't forget to cherish each moment afield, especially while in the woods this deer season. This weekend my Dad and I went and fixed up the stands. It was the first time in 7 years he has gone up to camp before season. It was great to spend more time with him in the woods then normal. You never know when that opening day may be the last or that walk in the woods is no longer possible. Each time I step in the woods up there I am drawn to the countless memories of past seasons. We often take for granted(at least I do) that you never know when these great rituals and traditions can be taken away from you. Make sure to "Cherish the moments....." this season. Be safe and good luck!!

AMEN! I cherish the time that I spent with dad in the field. There will be no more of them but I relive past ones each time I go hunting, as well as create new ones with my son. Don't forget to thank the Big Guy that makes it all possible. Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

My Grandfather taught me how to shoot and fish. Every time I see his old .22 in the cabinet I wish he was still here to enjoy the time outdoors. But I know he is probably fishing some big lake up above and enjoying every minute of it. Now whenever I can get together with my dad, or take my 4 year old daughter fishing that just becomes special time.

My Father passed 4 years ago and I still try to shoot a deer every year with the rifle he used when we hunted together every season.

Take every chance you have to hunt with your father if he hunts as it will end one day.

I learned nearly everything I know about the outdoors from my father. I now live in another state, but we still get together to hunt and fish at least 5 times a year. I hunt and fish that many times a week, but after the year is all said and done, looking back, it is always the hunts with dad that stick out.

Jiggin-matt and I are in a similiar boat. I have my gramps to thank for setting the hook in me and introducing me to a life in the outdoors. The many fond memories I have with him are cherrished and recollected often. I'm lucky because I still get the opportunity to continue to make those memories with him, and I sieze every chance I get.

I agree. Even stuff like flat tires or walking back to camp or the drive there and back are all good oppertunities to have fun and make memories.

the best thing I like is going in at dark, getting a lantern and some helpers and trailing and dragging out a deer. always exciting and fun.

Yup, remember those that introduced you to the sport. The spot my stand is in has been used by 4 generations, I thought I was so (Contact Us Please) smart putting up a stand there. Come to find out my grampa and his cousins had been shooting deer there for 40 years befor I was born. This year I pass it on to a nephew, hope he has a chance at a deer, I have shot 3 140 class bucks off there.

harvey lee, trying to shoot a deer every year with your fathers old rifle...wow man. That is awesome. I have the upmost respect for you. Reminds me of the time I passed a graveyard right down the road from my house. It was durring deer season and I saw an elderly woman put a buck's rack on the grave of her husband. She was crying and looked so lonely. It haunted me all day. BC

That is for sure. I don't know what I will do when I do loose my dad and he is not there to hunt and fish with me. I do cherish ever time him and I are out. I love being able to get him out because he still loves doing it. I get more excited for him to get a deer than I do if I get one. It is much like it was for him when I first started hunting. I know when the day comes I will be doing the same thing as Harvey with my dad's gun. He certainly has slowed down but hasn't missed an opening day for probably 40+ years.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      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?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      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
