      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 .

BJ Penn in 2nd round TKO

Griffin will beat Silva by decision.

Those are the two main fights, they'll be a few more aired but I'm not sure who they will be showing.

I dont see the silva griffin fight going to a decision, they both have nothing to lose so there just gonna swing, plus silva knows that if he has another fight like that past 2 the fans are gonna keep turning on him. I think griffin might be able to knock him out, and kenny wins as well.

Griffin's chances against Silva approach zero. You can't ever say ZERO, because one punch/knee can change or end a fight, but Silva is just a machine. Better stand-up, better clinch, better submissions.

JLT....That was my first thought, but then I started thinking that if Penn had trouble training for GSP, he wouldn't do any better and maybe worse for Florian. On the other hand, KF is probably pulling out all the stops for this one! Should be interesting as Penn is a good fighter even when he isn't in the best of shape. I think Silva has to many tools for FG to deal with, probably get stopped on a cut.

Totally agree. As much as I like Griffin, I think Silva is a whole different class of fighter. Either way, gonna be a great fight!

Grebe, that's Kenflo's hope...If he can get it into the later rounds BJ's tank may be low, but BJ has a new conditioning coach and was really humbled by GSP. Picture GSP vs Kenflo and imagine how short that fight would be! Silva is a Sniper with his standup and Forrest likes to stand so I don't see it ending well for Forrest?

That's what I thought would happen to Forrest. I figured that BJ would of won in an earlier round than he did, but apparently his new conditioning coach is paying off! Forrest will have a tough time thinking this fight over, as he was humiliated in the stand up game! Do not stand with Anderson Silva, as you will be sleeping soon! Back to the drawing board Ken (elbows to the back of the head) Florian.

Wow, that Silva Griffin fight was something. Silva made Griffen look stupid out there. That was crazy how he just dropped his hands and mocked everthing Forrest threw. I dont care for the guy but his talent in unreal.

And I wouldnt say Penn dominated KenFlo. Kenny did a good job of being the aggresor in the fight I thought. Up until the end he was mostly moving forward on Penn.

i'd like to see silva vs GSP....i don't think GSP would play around and stand there to exchange blows on the feet....it would definetly be silva's toughest fight.

did people really think kenflo could beat BJ? yeah i know easy to say after the fact but i didn't think kenflo stood a chance...but i will say i thought griffen had a chance to beat silva if he didn't get ko'd....i thought he'd press the fight more against the cage and on the ground and maybe take silva to the later rounds....but on the other hand i thought he might be stupid and stand there and fight straight up to prove he isn't scared...can't believe he got knocked out by that little love tap lol

silva is a beast...they need to give him the hardest matchups to bring out the best of him...he gets bored with the other chumps.

I just seen the clips of the fight...Forest wasn't even in it!

It looked like the old films of Jack Johnson pounding Jim Jefferies! It might take someone we haven't even seen yet to beat Silva?

    • Between these two companies the grass is always greener on the other side.   I found that once your original contract is up with Direct TV you just need to call in yearly to get the "12 month promotion"  which brings your package down to where it should be. Every September I call to get my 1yr "promotion" which is worth $40 a month off the bill. Last year I got the $40 a month off and the NFL ticket. This year they wouldn't give me the NFL ticket, but with the $40 off it is priced right at the levels Dish would be at for a new customer.  The only complaint I have with Direct TV is that I went out and bought a King tailgater for direct tv, and then bought a cheap direct tv box off of the Internet for $50. When I had it connected over the phone they guy tried telling me that when I discontinued my service I'd have to send the box in......hey wait a min....I bought and own this I ain't sending dump back to you I OWN it. 
    • Really great colors there now and butterflies by the thousands. get there if you can. Headed over for 2 hours today. Heres a few pics. Pics from Munsinger
    • Plus+1 last weekend got into a good bite in about 31-35 feet and they were all full of Minnows.
    • @Tom Sawyer   Any idea what this is with the painted lady?  Only saw this one at Munsinger.  Really a beauty. 
    • Thanks Juneau.... Just an FYI to everyone - HH is my account
    • Interesting take via Judd Sulgad on the Koivu Signing:   Perhaps most galling about all of this is Michael Russo of The Athletic tweets there is a no-move clause in Koivu’s extension. Why on earth would Fletcher agree to include a no-move clause in an aging player’s contract? It’s bad enough when you give a no-move clause to a productive player who suddenly hits the cliff but in Koivu’s case there was no reason to do this. Heck, there was no reason to give him any type of extension in the first place. He also was entering the final season of a seven-year, $47.25 million contract that will pay him $5.4 million in 2017-18. Allowing Koivu to play out that contract made perfect sense. If he had productive 2017-18, he might be brought back but there also was the potential that his money could have been used on a younger, more attractive talent. Koivu is coming off a productive 2016-17 season in part because he was able to move from first- to second-line center playing behind 32-year-old Eric Staal. Koivu had 18 goals and 58 points and was a plus-27 in 80 games, spending much of the season with Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker on his wings. Like many Wild players, Koivu didn’t do much in the Wild’s five-game first-round playoff loss to the Blues. He had one goal, one assist and was a minus-1. All of this set up Koivu with the opportunity to return this season and prove he could remain a productive and durable player. When it came to Koivu’s contract, the Wild finally was in an ideal spot. That is no longer the case. Instead, the Wild has Koivu locked up for three more years and, thus, put themselves right back in the type of salary-cap situation they should be trying to escape.
    • Thats the way I ran mine.  One run of AC comes from the converter, and one run terminates in a male plug that goes into my inverter.  That outlet run is dead unless I am running it off my inverter but I just split the couple outlets I would need behind the TV and one other spot and it seems to be working flawlessly so far.  I can watch Dish TV without firing up the genny if I want.  Only time I would really do this is during a hot bite to minimize noise.  Outside of that, just let er run.
    • I guess we'll see in 8/9 months if he's worth $6 Million.....my point is they could have waited and resigned him in the off season for less...he never would have gotten that elsewhere...never...just leaving money on the table that could be spent more wisely elsewhere IMO.  Surpirsed he hasn't extended Parise/Suter for another 5 yrs at $9M/yr beyond the 10 he already signed them for   
    • I'm guessing that worms and crawlers wash into water systems after storms. So they are not totally foreign to being found in the water. Deep mudflats? Doubt it. But I do target storm sewer outlets on lakes shortly after rainfall with some success using natural colored rubber worms for bass. And have caught an occasional walleye while doing so.
    • Just relaxing and bobber fishing with the Mrs while camping up north 10 days ago, had decent sized suckers on. Had 8 suckers left for the evening bite. Found where some smallies seemed to be stacked. Two 18"ers, two 19"ers and what looked to be a 20" smallmouth that got off boat side.  A 23" walleye decided to get in on the fun, had a snip off and lost a fish in the weeds 25' feet down. Those were some productive minners. Bringing more next year. A nice double and my wife's new personal best bass. 19"
