      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 .

Favre buys house in Eden Prairie

Recommended Posts

Could be he just wants to have a house in a real city after living in Green Bay for so dang long!!

Yeah, with Lake Michigan out your door, the northwoods within spitting distance, Lake Superior and the U.P. just a short drive away, Green Bay is the suckiest place for a guy with Favre's off-the-field outdoors interests. I can see why he would want to live in a metro area far from God's Country, all right. winkwink

LOL....It's funny how many MN license plates I see at the landings when I'm fishing on the lakes by my cabin. I thought they had 10,000 to fish on??? WI....God's country indeed!!!

You know why there are so many people from MN in WI? Because WI sucks.

No kidding.

And MN infastructure over WI. Some towns in WI have 1985 k-5 blazers as their police vehicles.

My post has nothing to do with Minn vs Wis, though I guess if you guys feel like getting into that tired old pi$$ing match there's nothing anyone can do to stop it.

My post had everything to do with Favre's non-football outdoors interests, and how much more easily those interests might have been served in Green Bay than they will be in the metroslime of the Twin Cities. I could make the exact same argument for his living in Duluth (Minn.) instead of the metroslime of Milwaukee (Wis), which basically has become an exburb of the King Metroslime of Chicago.

But you all jus' keep havin' fun dissin' the neighbor states if that's what keeps you happy. gringringrin

My guess is there are more transplants that end up in Mn than WI because of better employment, health care, schools, and arts. WI doesn't sucks, it's just hard to have an intelligent conversation with a cheese head. If Favre moves here it's only because he received a contract to play football for the Vikes. Which would be the same reason he lived in WI.

I doubt he had much time to partake in the outdoors during season. And when the season wasn't going he was back down in Mississippi.

I've heard rumblings the Wild are looking for new talent, so I wouldn't rule it out. Maybe Gabby can throw a football laugh

No, the real funny thing is how many WI "hunters" come to ND to chase deer and coyotes with their vehicles and yet get their vehicles taken away every year,(slow learners) you hear about instances like this every year!!! WI people should do illegal carp in there own state then, if its "God country"

Badger, do you work in Minnesota like all the rest of Hudson? Stealing Minnesota jobs and then living in Wi to avoid higher home costs and giving Wi your property taxes seems like Hudsons forte'

My wife and I lived in MN for many years. Yes, I work in MN (6 figure income). My wife also has a fantastic career in MN. My 400K house in Hudson was built by a MN contractor. We spend a lot of $$ in MN every year.... restaurants, concerts, plays, mall of america etc. All our vehicles and boats have been purchased in MN. I enjoy MN very much!! The midwest can't be beat! wink

Favre is going to enjoy living in Eden Prairie, but he should consider a place in Hudson. LOL

They also have paved roads everywhere and its hard to find a dirt road. I wish Minnesota had roads as nice a Wisc.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
    • Tip ups outside the house are fine because you can visually see them which means you are attending to those lines.  A line left down in your house while you go to a buddies house can't be seen. If you can't see them you can't attend to them when needed.  A CO also has no idea how long you were gone, were the lines unattended for 5 minutes or 5 hours?   If you have some sort of system set up so that you can monitor the lines remotely then you've entered a gray area and would probably be up to the CO's discretion.  You can email the DNR and ask but I'm guessing whether you get a ticket or not would be determined by which CO finds you and what kind of mood he's in that day.  If you did choose to take the ticket to court I'd think you'd have a reasonable case to present.  The judge would have to determine if being able to monitor your lines on a baby monitor satisfies the law. Personally I think it would but who knows what a judge or CO would think. 
    • Sounds like event was well attended all 3 days just over 28k total.   we went on Friday and had a great time participating in the bird dog parade. Scored some deals on some dog stuff and even got some nice freebies.   hope it makes it back to SD again. Next year is in Schaumburg Illinois so probably won’t attend. 
    • Battled the winds yesterday but fishing was excellent. Couldn’t find the big perch but managed to get a limit of eyes here in South Dakota   
    •   Winning the Daytona 500 is huge.   The only thing better, is winning it clean.   Move or be moved is fair.   But I could only imagine the shower of beer cans onto the track if roles had been reversed.      
    • Where did you get your subfloor? How is it holding up? 
    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck.
