      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 .

Haven't seen a Mavs game since I graduated. How are they doing this year? The Gophers always seemed to have our number. Hopefully that's changing.

Any predictions? I'll say its a split. I can't tell how good the Gophs are this year. Are they still sharing goaltending duties?

The Gophers always seemed to have our number.

Lets hope the tradition continues! The gophers seem to play one great game and one terrible game a weekend so a split will probably happen but if Lucia wants to keep his job and if we want to be any kind of contender this year we have to sweep this series.

Good...I am a Maverick at heart. The Gophers are what got me into hockey when I was 3 years old and I have played ever since, but I went to school at MSU so I gotta root for them.

Fun game to watch last night. Mavericks executed a great game plan.

I was also pleased to see it in HD on FSN. Is this their first game like that, or have they had others? I'm hoping to watch the Dogs on Friday in HD too, but will be at the game on Saturday.

I thought Kangas looked okay. Their blue liners were leaving a lot of pucks in front of the net uncontested, especially at the end. They also seemed to have issues carrying it out of the zone.

I think the maroon and gold will have a little more focus and fire tonight.

Kangas looked terrible on that 3rd goal by the Mavs. He had no idea the puck went through, while the Mavs player just slid it past him.

I also started out watching the Gophers, but went to MNSU, so I had to cheer for the Mavs too.

Kangas made a few really good saves, but the rest of the game he looked pretty bad. he just looks lost out there. I dont know how the gohpers can miss the net so much. 2 times our guy was alone in front of the net. NOt a breakaway but literally standing in front of the goalie with the puck. Neither time did we even hit the net. Their power play is absolutely embarrassing. I better not see Lucia or any of the coaching staff behind the bench next year. 5 on 3 taking shots from the point that had no chance of doing anything. Terrible, all we did was take bad shots on all 4 powerplays.

I don't understand why Kent Patterson isn't there man in net. His numbers win lost record is far better than Kangas. Watch Patterson starts tonight and the Gophers win.

Gophers are getting out coached. When you get 50 shots on net and dont win something is wrong. I bet we had another 30 blocked. we make no adjustments week by week. Just a flat team. Granted we were a little snake bit by the goalie, but you have to be able to score. Terrible powerplay again. It reminded me of a Peewee team. first person to get the puck shoots. Doesnt matter if there is a screen or anything. Just shoot, terrible plan. Even Gorg was left wondering what the gophs were thinking.

Side note, I am not sure if I have seen a 4 on 4 goal for the Gophers since Lucia took over.

Gophs are a decent team, coaching is killing them. I swear I see players getting worse already. At least get rid of coach Hill and whoever does the power play.

Remember years ago, 4 on 4 was almost like a power play for us.

Way to take it to us Mavs, congrats on the sweep.

    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.

    • 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
