      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 .

yellow lab

Recommended Posts

I have couple questions for you people out there. Just got a yellow lab a couple months ago. I could swear he is going to tear the house apart piece by piece. Can a dog be both a hunting dog and an inside dog? How many of you out there have done this? Currently he sleeps in the garage but is in the house when we are in the house. I could swear I have another Marley and me in process. He sometimes listens well and other times well he can leave something to be disired. He seems to learn quickly but has more energy than you can shake a stick at. I'm sure this is to be expected. I have started to walk him on my bike to release some of his energy. When can we expect him to settle down? He's somewhere in the neighborhood of 4 months old.

Thanks for the replys.

Golfer, In all my experiences with dog, I would guess he would settle down by the time he reaches about 2 years. grin.gif Good luck and just run him as much as you can.

He's a puppy. There really isn't much more to say...

Have a 8 month old pup that lives in the house. They need lots of excercise! She gets real wild when i don't get her out for enough. It helps that i have an older dog too. As stated above it takes a couple years for them to mellow out.

Enjoy the puppy in him while you can ! I thought the same thing with my lab. Very high strung dog. He is now 5 and still has puppy in him. He is a inside dog that can go outside or come back when he wants. He has slowed down a little bit, but I appreciate how active he is because he keeps himself in shape. He is also a hunting dog and he gets very excited when he knows that we are going to go and try to get some birds. He was also 3rd place over all at the dock jump last year at the game fair. The rules to "Do not play ball in the house" has changed since I got him, because there is no way to get around it. If you don't feel like playing, he eggs you on until you play. Your dog sounds a lot like mine at that age. I wouldn't change a thing. A dog door to go outside and an invisable fence were the best investments I made for him. I am sorry, but I have to laugh a little bit because I went through the same thing. Even though he is very high strung, it does get a little easier as time goes. Try to enjoy it, time goes so fast, I can't believe that my lab is already 5.

The key here is excercise. Make sure he gets out enough.

Dogs are like kids. Make sure they get loved and let them know who the Alpha male is.

They can definitely be both a family pet, and a good hunter, especially a lab.

Train him ASAP, alittle bit at a time, don't burn them out.

Make it a game, and quit for the night when they are still interested in it.

A shock collar is a good idea...after once or twice, you probablly won't even need to use it but put it on, they will listen cause they DO remember. You don't have to give them much of a jolt either.

Once again, treat them like you would treat your children, and you can't go too far wrong.

He will be pretty high strung for about 2 yrs. like someone already said. My female ivory is a yr&1/2 and she is still wound like a nine day clock.

Good Luck, and remember that obeddiance is the first step. smirk.gifsmirk.gif

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      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.

      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

      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.    ; )
