      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 .

One of those days...

Recommended Posts

Ever had one of them days where you woke up refreshed before the alarm clock went off. When you went to the kitchen and breakfast was made and sitting under the warmer on a warm plate and the wife was already gone for the day. You go out and start the truck and you are already pointed in the direction of your first errand. You hit every light on a green and a car pulls out of a first row parking space at the store just in time for you to pull in. You enter the store just as the bakery is passing out free donuts just minutes from the oven. You pass the meat dept. just as they are putting porterhouse steaks at half price out in the cooler. A pretty girl winks at you in Dairy and when you turn around there is no one behind you and she really was winking at you. You make it to checkout and find out you are the stores winning customer and you get a 100.00 gift card and your groceries are bagged and carried to your truck. Ever had one of them days when you go to the car wash and find a stack of quarters and time left on the hose.

Ever had one of them days when you go to the express line at the bank and there really is someone there who knows what they are doing. Later in the day the cable guy shows up at 1pm when the appointment was from 1 till 5 he then upgrades all your wiring for free, and is done in 30 minutes cuz the head linesmen is working with him that day. Ever had one of them days that you are halfway though and realize that nothing is sore on you. Ever have one of those days when your bud calls and says he won a 4 day flyin fishing trip for two and you are the first person he called and you are free that weekend, Ever had one of them days?.....me neither.

Had a nice weekend trip planned to fish pannies a few weeks ago so I left work in a hurry. Left my cell phone on my desk and didn't notice until I was 10 minutes/ almost a-third the way home so I want to make a left to hurry back and get my phone so I can leave for my trip and the guy in front of me is hemming and hawing and finally decides to go thru the yellow/red and I'm flustered so I go through too - which I never do usually - and there waiting for me to go through....the coppers...and he U-turns to nab me and won't take my sob story and now I'm $115 poorer plus gotta take an online traffic school course. And on the way to fishing I stop at the casino and lose $300 trying to recoup my ticket cost and worst of all the weekend fishing stunk!

Ever have one of those days? I did.

Just yesterday I had one of those days smirk.gif I begged to get let out of work early even though we're busy as heck because a girl I dated in HS was in Brainerd for a couple days and wanted me to come visit her. I left work, picked my son up from daycare and went to gas up. I figured, "Full tank and discount on a wash, might as well.." After the car wash was through I went to start the truck and be on my way. Turned over and over and over and I thought, "Oh no. Not again." Yep. Again. The fuel pump is out. I just changed it during the 100 degree heat wave we had this Summer and for some odd reason, bad karma. So I call my brother at work and he says it'll be a bit before he can tow me. I need a vehicle to use til I fix the fuel pump again and happen to see a car lot not far from where I am. So I grab the kid and head over there. I end up buying an 83 Dodge Diplomat for $850. I go back to the car wash and see my truck is in the way a bit so I try to push it away. Twang goes my back. So, now not only is my truck broken and I'm out 850 I don't really have, but now every time I move wrong I get the wind kicked out of me. Splendid day. I was really looking forward to seeing her again too. She got hot! wink.gif

Nah, I've never had one of those days either, but I've had some good one! Yesterday was one of them...got to hook up with my middle son and go fishing.

It was a beauty of a day and the colors of late fall, the golds, yellows and browns were excellent in the sunshine.

We seen hawks, turkeys, deer, swans, pheasants and a bunch of other wildlife that seemed to be enjoying the day as much as we were.

We got to our fishing spot and after a little trial and error, figured out how to get into the walleyes, which we proceeded to do. Not a whole bunch, we landed 5 and not really big, up to 21 inches, but we had a ball in between!

We got some huge carp that snarfled in fathead minnows and gave us a rush...2 in the 10-12 pound range and one a tad smaller, bullhead, crappie, sunnie and northern rounded out the day....a 10 pound carp on 4 pound test and an ultralight rod is ultra hard to land, but we did!

We beat the evening traffic back into town, and we even won on a scratch off. Hit more then 50% of the lights, didn't experience any road rage, didn't get shot and made it to the polling booth on time. Pretty good day I'd say!

That is the way we should all look at life, but it's not always easy. I'm looking for one of those days where I see "da turdy pointer" and he offers me a good shot with my bow and I drop him in his tracks.

Have a good day guys,

Walleyedan

      What did you and Wanderer find for ice thicknesses at the lakes you were on?
    • Rick G
      Sorry for no more live updates. Got too busy fishing...lol Pretty decent morning bite, slow afternoon, followed up by a very good evening bite. Plenty of noce fish caught if you worked for them. 
    • eyeguy 54
      fun day for sure.   good to see those that popped up. get that eye pic up rick! Thx Moose for starting us out in a good area and for lining it up.

      Looks like you had a better bite than I did. I really didn’t expect all my gear to be that bad hand pulling out.  Big time failure on my part to not bring my wheeler.  I have too much of a spearing Jones to have left it all back at the truck. I brought a few gills, a seed, a crappie and a 25 inch walleye home.  Biggest gill went 8.  I went through a half dozen heavy pike suckers on the tip up but never dropped the spear.  Only saw one 20 incher that never really got in the hole.  The walleye inhaled the sucker and got the hooks in the throat. Glad you guys got some nice ones!
