      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 .

My fam is all decked out in our Viking's gear, tough last half of the season but very entertaining. I think we will stomp these Bears. Playing in the championship game for fantasy league and I couldn't get myself to start Howard lol

Bradford sets record for best completion percentage in NFL history.

 

Geez you just wonder how could this even be. Would have been nice to throw a few over the goal line this year! :whistle:

He exceeded my expectations with that line he had in front of them. They did what they could with what they had but I'm looking forward to building on what we need and seeing who is coming or going. Watching the Lions and Packers game now, GO BLUE!

Sam had 20 TD's in 15 games. 8 more and he would have thrown as many as Theodore threw in 28 games.

I know this season it had a lot to do with the running game, but the Vikings went down 10 spots in points per drive from 2015 to 2016.

One telling stat for the season, IMO.

Vikings were 5-0 when scoring more than 21 pts.

Only 5 times all year. Pretty sad really. Considering good QB play, a fair to good corps or receivers.

Rhonda Rousy landed %50 of her punches and got her @ss handed to her against Nunes :) Percentage isnt everything.

 

I will say Bradford broke the pct record despite the offensive line but also because of the offensive line. They had no choice but tho throw quick and short, didn't have enough time to let plays develop any longer.

 

And I was hoping that last game at home against the terrible Bears and a meaningless game for the Vikes that I would have been able to score some decent tickets just to check out the stadium for the first time. No way was I going to take my family of 4 to the game for what people were still asking for tickets.

Ya I wondered what the tickets were going for.  I have been to quite a few Vikes games but it has been years.  My wife is a huge fan like me and hasn't been to a game.  We keep thinking of biting the bullet and just going for it.  Find a hotel, shuttle package deal or something easy like that.  Just so nice to be at home watching in comfort and then hit the fish house for a couple of hours.

Lowest I found was about $80 each for 2, and they were nose bleeds about as far back from the field as possible. I couldn't find a group of 4 tickets together for under a $100 and they were all about as far away from the field as possible as well. There may not be a bad seat there but after the ticket fees etc from 2nd party sites I wasn't going to pay $500+ for tickets and food gas and travel to get there. I didnt even try craiglist wasnt worth the risk.

 

I am going to the Supercross race there in February so I will check it out then. I paid $60 a ticket and am first row on an aisle in the 2nd deck. About 1/5th the price per ticket I would have paid to see the Vikes from the same seats.

 

 Hopefully they get the security issues worked out by then lol

His percentage was amazing, even though it was so high because of the playbook we had to use thanks to the O-line. He has shown some pretty stellar downfield accuracy even when rushed. If he had time for a play to develop or if he had a running game to fall back on he would be friggin awesome. 

 

I'm on the Bradford bandwagon, I can't wait to see how they play their cards this offseason.

    • Take it to that pawn shop in Las Vegas. They will bring in an expert to tell you it's history,give you a low ball offer once they find out and then you can just walk. 
    • I've always been partial to the fold down couch in the back but I'd want to have storage under it and a fold down bunk above it. One thing to keep in mind is the heater.  I know you said the current heater stays for this season and maybe next but if you're doing work on the layout now you should probably plan for the new heater now even if its not going in for a year or two.  You'd hate to do all this work adjusting the layout only to find out you should have done something differently to accommodate the new heater. 
    • If mine,  I would add those drop down bunks and some pedestal boat seats.  With a smaller house like that I would want as much open area as possible.  I think those big couch/sofas take too much room.  You can always drop the bunk and take a snooze without taking up floor fishing space.  Just some thoughts.......
    • I tried a glass of a buddy's Templeton Rye last night and was impressed. I'm not big of Rye's but this one was very smooth. I can't say I'd ever buy a bottle but someone else's booze is always up near the top of the list of my favorites. I still prefer the $15 Trader Joe's bourbon though. 
    • I didn't figure anyone at cabelas would be any help. I have scoured the gun and haven't ever been able to find any markings of any kind. I forgot to mention in the previous post that it's a 16 gauge.  If nothing else, it'll look cool hanging over my basement bar. 
    • Ha I remember showing ya a thing or 2!!! Not sure where your son got his fishin prowess from though! Yea well!! oh I changed my poopy pants!
    • I can't see the pics?
    • You might be better off trying to do some research on your own on the old shotgun. I think it would be a waste of time taking it to Cabela's since most of the folks  who work there now think  any gun made before 1970 is an antique. The gun surely is made in Europe and might have originated in one of the English or Belgian or even German "guild" shops, little outfits that cranked out inexpensive guns that did not even bear maker's names since they were made by a "bunch" of guys. Your best bet would be to trace or photograph the proof marks and go from there.  That is,  I'm assuming it has proof marks :).
    • For an exciting adventure in shooting grab an old "trapdoor" Springfield and rattle off a few rounds of 45-70 or 45-90.  If you're of skinny build and little weight it'll give you a THUMP you'll remember!   Perfect deer cartridge for MN though since that big ol' bullet will go churning through the brush like a D-8 Cat until it hit's it's target. Have been around the old '94 30-30 since way back when and while it is handy it is not that accurate and lacks the knock-down power of many, many of today's rounds. But if you just have to have one as I always say, it''s your money. Keep in mind you can buy the .35 Remington in a pump action,   which a lot of MN duck hunters find easy to use come deer season.
    • I have an old Damascus barreled shotgun that was passed on to me by my grandpa. The story I have always heard and been told is that it was brought over from Denmark by my great grandfather in 1915. It has no markings indicating where it was made or anything else that I could use to figure out some history on the gun. It is a pin fire and has a stag carved into the underside of the stock. Anyone have any ideas on where I could find any info on this? I had thought about bringing it to Cabelas and see if they knew anything about it. I'm not concerned about the value. I'd just like to know a little more about it or even get pointed in the right direction.
