      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Sledneck concurs Bristol with all the drivers needed for the weekly win this week. Sled has had a couple of good scores this year but 344 points is his personal best this year! Congratulation SledNeck!!!

If only I had put Mark Martin on my bench I would have been back in first. Montoya didn't exactly help things along this week either!!

I told my family last night that it looks like I topped the veteran's league, but I had a feeling a rookie would beat me.

Congrats to SledNeck!

I just got home from the race and really thought MM would have won. The cautions kinda helped the others.

During the Busch race when Kyle B crashed, the whole place cheered.

I could not believe so many did.

When the driver intro's were being done and they rode around the track in the back of pick ups, Kyle did not look into the stands as the fans boo'ed so loud.

    • The 30 is a log to have to carry constantly but sure is nice to have to keep the bait lively!  I went last night and purchased another pump in order to plug into the wall...$13 and all I have to do is move the tube from one pump and connect to the other.  I am seeing if I can easily keep minnows alive from one weekend to the next.
    • Wow, someone else who actually watched the video and figured out what Williams did. Thanks @nofishfisherman.   It should never have gotten to that. The Vikings have got to keep playing to win for 4 quarters.   Playing to protect a lead can get you into trouble much faster than it's likely to help.
    • The mistake was getting there too early, clearly if he had continued with his tackle he would have been there way too early and would have an easy PI call against him.  Had he gotten a PI call then no matter what happened after that the vikings would have had a shot at kicking a field goal because a game can't end on a defensive penalty.  By avoiding the penalty he at least forced Diggs to make the catch and avoid any other tacklers.  In most cases the WR is going to catch that ball and get out of bounds right away no matter what. It was just the perfect mix of circumstances for Diggs to take it for a TD.  Had Diggs simply been facing a different direction after the catch he wouldn't have seen he had a clear path to the end zone and would have likely stepped out of bounds to stop the clock. Had Williams not taken out the other DB he may have been in position to make a tackle or at least be close enough to perhaps make Diggs think the best option is to run out of bounds instead of risk getting tackled in bounds.    What I found more puzzling is the overall defense from the Saints.  I've seen it broken down a few times and they had several players guarding against short passes to the middle of the field.  That vikings had no time outs and needed at least 20 yards, the Saints should have been inviting them to through short into the middle of the field not actively trying to take it away.  It appeared the entire play was a complete mental breakdown by the Saints.  It will go down as a great play by the Vikings, and it was, but it was made possible by some pretty big mistakes by the Saints defensive play calling and a single mental breakdown by Williams. 
    • Has anybody found this particular color of rattl'n flyer recently, i am down to my last 2 and i havent been able to find them in pushing 2 years.    
    • Good deal! Did you leave the ice coned up to help keep a seal?
    • Update: took the shack out this weekend had reflectix and fans blowing in the holes and they stayed open in the -20 windchills 
    •   I also saw a picture with Blair Walsh's face on Marcus Williams as he is missing the tackle.........wide left. 
    • Copied from FB:   A friend of mine has two tickets for the 2018 Super Bowl, both box seats. He paid $2,500 each but he didn't realize last year when he bought them, it was going to be on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place...It's at St Christopher’s Church, in Edina, Minnesota, at 3pm. Her name is Samantha, she's 5'4", about 145 lbs, good cook too.....She'll be the one in the white dress.
      (Feel free to copy and paste, to keep the laughter going!)
    • The saints player was probably running to where the ball should have been thrown. That throw was 2 yards onto the field, should have been closer to the sideline. It would have been a pretty easy tackle to keep him in bounds and the game is over.. Nothing wrong with a little luck on our side. I thought the refs were terrible all game. Lots of questionable and no calls. That last no call when Theilen got mugged was ridiculous...
