      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 Goat Found In Trunk! (Video Added!)

Favre fever: Good for Vikings. Bad for goats.

Purple-painted animal turns up in a trunk at a Winona car shop

By Tad Vezner

Updated: 08/24/2009 11:48:01 PM CDT

"Brett" the goat apparently avoided being butchered by a group of carnivorous football fans Friday after he was found painted, partially shaved and tied up in a car trunk at the Minnesota-Wisconsin border.

It started when a 20-something woman came in to Tires Plus in Winona, Minn., across the Mississippi River from Wisconsin, where James Prusi was working Friday morning.

One of the engine belts of the woman's Chevy Malibu was busted. Prusi said he would call when it was ready.

"Oh, by the way, there's a goat in my trunk," the woman added as she was getting ready to leave.

"There's a what?"

"A goat. ... It's alive, but we're going to butcher it," the woman said, flashing a "kind of nervous smile," according to Prusi.

"She was probably anticipating how I was going to take it," Prusi said in an interview Monday.

Prusi really didn't know how to take it. He glanced at a co-worker, and the two exchanged bewildered looks.

"We specialize in brakes, alignment and tires. Don't really know how to fix goats," Prusi said in the interview. "I didn't take it any further. I didn't ask her why."

The woman left, and soon afterward, the goat started bleating.

"It was crying loud, almost sounded like it was a kid," Prusi said.

The Tires Plus crew opened the trunk, and the goat stuck out its head. Prusi said the side he could see was painted purple, and there were paint smears from the other side that looked like they might have been green or gold.

The numeral 4 — a number that earned new fans and alienated old ones when former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre signed with the Minnesota Vikings last week — was shaved into the goat's side. Its legs were tied.

"We couldn't goat-sit all night," Prusi said, so the crew shut the trunk, but the goat started making noise after another 10 minutes. Prusi called animal control, who told them they'd be right out.

When the woman came back about 90 minutes after dropping off the car, she was accompanied by a man her age carrying a child about 3 years old. Prusi tried not to ask any questions.

"I wanted to keep my conversation with them to a minimum. I felt guilty turning them in," Prusi said. "But they were torturing this poor goat."

Within a few minutes, an animal-control officer showed up, accompanied by two Winona police cars. The animal-control officer took the goat and the couple left in the woman's car. Prusi said he didn't hear what authorities said to her.

Prusi said that the woman's car had Minnesota plates and that she had a St. Paul address. He said neither she nor the man or child had any football team paraphernalia to identify their loyalties.

"There's Vikings and Packers fans mixed" in Winona, Prusi said. "It's about 50-50 here."

Favre's debut with the Vikings was Friday night in a 17-13 preseason victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at the Metrodome.

Animal control took the goat to a local veterinarian, according to the Associated Press. It was renamed Brett and placed in foster care.

An animal-control officer informed Prusi that the goat, about a year old, was "malnourished and skinny."

Animal-control officer Wendy Peterson said Monday that the Winona city attorney is reviewing the case for possible citations, according to the Associated Press.

I wonder if they where Favre fans or not? confused

Ummmm, okay... One of the weirder stories of the year.

Makes me wonder why you'd drop your car off at a Tires Plus with a goat in the trunk? Bored people in need of some publicity or are they really that dumb?

Here is some recap on this story. I guess it was on KQ this morning also:

    • 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. 
    • I would also look into using SIPS panels as an alternative to post framed. I have done a lot of projects using SIPS panels from a company called EPS in Iowa including the new fire station/ city hall in our town.    The cost of the panels is higher than the material cost of post framed but they are super insulated, go up fast and really cut down on outside noise. Our city has saved a significant amount of money in heat savings and you can even put in smaller btu HVAC which saves money. 
    • I always thought it was a visual issue. Not sure of the footage away but going house to house without seeing your lines might be a problem. I've wondered in the summer, casting a sucker off the dock and walking up to the cabin to get something if that was in wrong as well. 
    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside
