      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 .

Picking pup

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine studded out his lab to a friend of his and now he has the pick of the litter which he is giving to me. My friends dog is about 85 pounds at 2 years old and the female was about 55-60 pounds. I am planning on a female and would like it to get to be about the same size as its mother. My question is, how would I figure out which are going to get big and which will be in the size that I am looking for(65-75 pounds)? This is my first dog and I will be using it for pheasants and some grouse. I might also take him out for waterfowl a couple times a year but I hunt fields so having a dog isn't that big a deal. Thanks in advance for your help.

If you can figure it out please let me know. I have had the biggest puppies turn out to be skinny speed freaks and smaller pups turn out to be muscled out bruisers. I think you pick out a good breeding and cross your fingers.

Yep... there's is no hard and fast guarantees around that will determine the outcome of any pup... Just take a good, healthy, inquisitive pup and all else should work out in the end...

Good Luck!

Having had many dogs over the years if you are getting the pick of the litter I would recommend selecting the female that selects you. Having said that I should explain it some. Every once and a while you get very lucky and get a pup that picks you to be his or her master. If this happens to you then you are a lucky man. These are the kind of dogs that your very wish is there command and they cannot do enough to make you happy. This being your first dog it would be great if you will be so lucky as to get one. They will spoil you forever. I hope your friend is not going to pick a female out for you and then just give her to you. You should go to the pups and just sit down by them. They all may come to you or just a few, let them discover you. If you are lucky you may get a few interested in you and maybe a female will be one of them. I would keep in mind that this is going to be your new kid for the next 10 years or so. Better to have one that like you then one you will be yelling at.. I am sure others will chime in but I have been lucky to have been picked several times, I have two at my feet right now! good luck..

      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

      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!
