      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 .

Gopher football 2016

Recommended Posts

Nice win to start the season. Not exactly their A game, but they did what they had to do, especially considering they had some absolutely horrible calls go against them. Should be able to work out the kinks against Indiana State. Sucks they have a bye week after that. GOPHER NATION DOMINATION!

Thier strong suit has been Thier secondary, however, the secondary looked weak.  Hopefully they fix some stuff.  We need our defense to be solid.

Mr. Leidner didn't look very sharp, except his legs.  His arm needs to work like late last year for this offense to click.

 new O- coordinator didn't seem to change anything.

I am hoping for a 9 win season with our schedule, but that may be optimistic.

Mitch looked pretty good today and our running game should be strong. Wish the defense could have played a little tougher in the 2nd half.Better than the game I was at last week though.

I thought they had a sloppy start. Too many dropped passes and stupid penalties. Not something they'll get away with in conference play. Putting up points was exactly what they need to do in games like this though. Not a good time for a bye week, as I think real game time is the best way to tighten up their play. Colorado state should be a tough game.

Solid win! Good prep for the big ten season. On paper, this was a tougher game than what next week's game against penn state should be. Their defense is horrible, so it'll be interesting to see if the gophers can run up the score.

Now that was how you need to beat a team like Illinois! Now that Nebraska has finally lost, the rest of their season has disaster written all over it! Big ten title game, perhaps? Unfortunately, the upcoming Purdue game scares me more than Nebraska or Wisconsin.

It is a weak schedule for sure.  Its amazing how many teams out there are worse than the gophers on top of it.  The gophs likely finish with 8 wins, perhaps 9.  I believe they are already bowl eligible?

Gophers control their own destiny! Getting Nebraska at the perfect time, now that they've been exposed.

 

LOL, Gophers have been exposed for 40 years.:D

That was the kind of game that makes you physically sick to your stomach! I haven't seen the gophers go from hot to cold like that since Glen Mason was the coach! Thank goodness this Leidner's last year! They should still get into a pretty good bowl game. Most reports I've heard have been saying the holiday bowl.

Why on earth would Gopher football effect you that way? Did you really expect a different outcome than the one you got? I was surprised they didn't get beat by more than 30 points. You do realize the Gophers played almost no quality opponents this year, right?

I don't even understand how they got that game. 

 

Quote

Effective with the 2014 game, the Big Ten signed a six-year contract to return after a 20-year absence to the Holiday Bowl, regaining the slot they held from 1991–1994. With this agreement, the Holiday Bowl now features the #3 Pac-12 team and the #4 Big Ten team.

 

Aren't the Gophers like the #7 or 8 Big Ten team?

    • I will say having the freespool feature when your on top of a school a perch moving through has put more fish in the bucket for me. Way quicker than hand lining a spinning reel. Once you get the freespool dialed in and running smooth,  you  can get your bait right back in front of the fish effortlessly. It makes a world of difference when your in a hurry. I run and gun on the ice and most lakes and sloughs here in SD are not that deep so works great for me.
    • I live right outside of Moorhead and see a few in the winter now days. About 8 yrs ago they moved into the shelterbelt around our place and there were about 50. It was nice to see them. I grew up in Harvey N.D. and we would go out and shoot a pickup box full in a night. That 250 - 300 jacks in a night. We would sell them to a guy that had a Mink and Fox ranch and get 50 cents each. The amount of jacks we would see in a night would be in the 1000's.   I think all the chemicals and pesticides are killing them off. We dont see the Meadow Larks like we use to either.
    • They work great on a super limp rod in 10 ft or so for tiny jigs on panfish, eliminating spin. Worthless after that. For this purpose expensive ones are a waste. 
    • I actually have one but it is up north and I won't be in a position to get it until next spring.   So PM me if you still need it then and you can have it.   Been a few years since I used it, but it worked when I stashed it in the attic.   They are not too hard to take apart and clean, and that might help.  Let me know in May if you still are in need.  
    • Another solution is to get Handheld radios (FRS/GMRS) especially if there's weak cell signal.
    • I have a Minnkota 12V bow mount trolling motor but need a foot pedal as mine isn't reliable and they discontinued the product.  The connection of the cord is a little over an inch and oval in shape.  Thank you!
    • The wife and I have different tastes so I usually use an off the shelf prime rib rub and finish up with coarse ground salt and pepper. There are lots of great rub recipes out on the net depending on your taste and company
    • Good catch of the actions and reactions of the walleyes down there.
    • Nice catch for your little boy!
