      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 .

I have a computer that is running slow and disk defragmenter says that there is only 1% free space. I have cleaned out the temp internet files and run ad aware. the kids had 2000 songs on the computer. I deleated them and only freed up 1% more. i dont have much on the computer that i know of. A few pictures and games but not alot. there is obviously something taking up alot of space that I am not aware of. I have went in to the add/ deleat programs and deleated a few unused things but is has not freed op much. Any advice?

Have you emptied the recycle bin? When you delete files they go to the recycle bin and will still take up space. After that do a restart, Alot of times when you delete programs a restart will finish the delete process.

Go into windows explorer and right click on the folder and go to properties to see what the size of the folder is. When you find the one that is really larger double click and start checking the folder in there. In some cases your anti virus software may not be deleting or over writing the old virus definitions.

What is the function that you use this this PC for? If you are using it mobile and are using any kind of synchronizing the synchronizing may be failing and filing up the hard drive.

Also be sure you empty your recyle bin and the run the defrag to sort everything out.

do a search on the internet for a program called crap cleaner. It is free. download it and run it. First time I ran it it deleted 1.3 gigs of garbage that I did not know I was carrying. Tried it on four machines at work with the same results. Crappy download programs will place zipped files in a temp file and then leave them there after the file has been unzipped.

If you have enough free space on your hard drive (only need about 1MB), download a program called "TreeSize Free".

It will show you what is taking up the space on your drive. MUCH easier than going through each folder.

[Please read forum policy before posting again, Thank You]

Here's a screen shot of one of my drives. You can see how easy it is to see the folder sizes. Just click on the little + signs to break it down even more.

The only thing that was confusing at first was that the very top bar shows how much total space is used, not the size of the drive. The total drive size is listed way down at the bottom of the screen.

Does he have anti-virus? and if so did he keep it up to date? My parents dropped of their laptop for me to look at with the same problems. Short version 115 virus's, they swore they did not open any files in emails and so forth but the only thing I could do was a complete format and reinstall.

Delete your internet cache, most caches are set really high and take up a lot of disk space. If you have high speed I would suggest setting the amount of disk space used by the cache to 1%.

Also, do a find for files that are larger than 10mb (100000 bytes). You might find a runaway log or other such file that can be deleted.

Delete email that you don't need from ALL folders, then compact them all. Sometimes this can free up a surprising amount of space.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties

      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.
