      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 .

The one that got away...

Perhaps I should have told this story a while back…maybe now works fine. As many of you know my wife and I were expecting our first child together early last winter. Have to admit at first I was not too thrilled considering we have a seven year old handful in the family already. As the due date grew closer I accepted that I was going to be a new daddy and bring my first little fisherman into the world shortly. Tragically on Friday the 13th of October at about 1:30am my wife suffered an abruption and started bleeding to death internally. This caused a separation between the uterus and placenta causing our little girl to suffocate to death. I thank the Lord every day my wife is still here but will always wonder why anyone would lose a baby that is perfectly healthy and not even premature. Guess we will get those answers when our own time comes to go to the big, deep, clear lake in the sky full of 65 inch muskies.

I will close this sad story by saying thank you for letting me get this off my chest so we don’t have to talk to much about it in the boat or at the dock this season. See you on the water!

Brian,

So sorry to hear about your loss, bud. I'm sure it must have made for a tough fall and winter. My brother and his wife went through a somewhat similar situation but not quite that scary of an ordeal. The musky Gods will shine down on you this season, I'm sure.

Brian,

Sorry to hear about your bad news. My mom went thru 3 herself after I was brought into this world. That's why I am an only child. Hey, for now, Alliah gets all your hugs and kisses all to herself. Consider yourself lucky to have her and when the time is right she will get a sister or brother. Glad to hear Muskie Girl is OK (give her a hug for me) and thanks for the heads up so we can just talk about fishing and my beloved White Sox on the boat this year (just tryin to make you laugh a little there). Stay strong my man and I will see you in about 10 weeks or so.

Sorry to hear of your loss Brian.Glad to hear your wife is doing good.It is hard to understand the Lord's plan in a situation like this but is all in his hand's. Also it can be a comfort to you to know that little baby is in heaven with the Lord. Our family will keep you and your family in prayer as you deal with this loss. Rick U.

There are no words to express the sorrow of losing a loved one and no way to explain the Lord's master plan.

When I was younger, I used to hate when my mom would say "every thing happens for a reason" because I wanted to know the reason. But you never can explain a mystery. Now as I am older, I try to take it as it comes and I too use "everthing happens for a reason". I hope you and Sam receive all the support you need anytime you need it.

So sorry to hear of your loss. My wife and I lost our first, a little boy, in December of 2005. You'll always question why it had to happen. He was perfectly healthy, my wife just went into premature labor at 21 weeks. It gets easier with time. Now we know that our little daughter, who was born on January 24th, 2007, has an extra little guardian angel looking out for her!

Thankfully your wife is OK!

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
    • leech~~
      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
