      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 .

Boston Champs?

Recommended Posts

They had it all together to night against James and the boys. There was some sloppy play, but when it came down to crunch time, Boston was better.

I think they really have a shoot. There my pick to win it all!!

I'm not a big NBA fan, but I would really like to see the Celtics win it all this year mainly because of KG. He has always worked very hard and was never really surrounded with talent outside of the one year with the T-Wolves. He is surrounded with plenty of talent now, so I think hope he can get a ring this year...

Good game last night for the C's - defense was stout, crowd was amped up and Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnet led the charge. Looking forward to game 2 Thursday. Thought the grind of 2 seven game series would catch up to em in the opener but it was Boston that looked fresh. Rondo hit some big shots late.

what a turn around for game 4 to game 5 for KG and Ray Allen. I have a feeeling there starting to turn it on, and if that is the case, boston is going to be the team to beat?

I hope you right Bass N Spear it would be nice to win one for the old guard, Boston was great down the stretch. If I'm the Pistons the first thing I do is get rid of Wallace that guy would be better off as an announcer than a player always running his big mouth

Not sure who will win...but i'd say game 7 for sure. Disney and the NBA will not let this thing get taken care of in 4 or 5.

I didn't catch the first half but the 2nd half was great... Boston's defense stifling and Pierce hitting those 3's. Allen and Rondo along with KG really locked down. On to game 2 Sunday...

Pretty darn good defense by the C's in the first half. 54-42 score. The game plan is working on Bryant and limiting the 3's. Pierce is really the best player in the series through 3 halves. Loved KG's outlet pass to Rondo after the block. Can you imagine Boston playing this well if they had dealt Rondo to Minnesota in the Garnett trade. He is a key piece in their offense and has gotten better all year. Would much rather have him in Minnesota than Telfair, but that's why Ainge is Executive of the Year and McHale is his main trading partner eek

They looked good except when they started to play the clock instead of the Lakers 1/4 of the way into the 4th. C's defense was on a hiatus until the last 2 minutes. Poe was huge last night and he has shown a quiet ability to take over a game. That was a heck of a story about him at the half - inspirataional, humbling but appreciative of the coaches he had and his Mom. These Celts are just heart guys and Doc Rivers is the best motivational coach we have had since KC Jones.

The talk about this series was how much better the Laker bench was over the Celtics. Aw yup tell Poe, P.J.,and Posey...

Paul Pierce is going home to LA to get some of Mom's good home cooking, just do us a favor C's take 1 of the three.

Was a very good game. I was going to go to nap at the beginning of the fourth, but was working on my tackle so I stayed up. I couldn't believe how they let them in being down by 25. They better play the entire game in LA.

    • Crops are out, sloughs are frozen.  Did very well on private ground in the Ortonville area this past weekend.
    • I bought the helix 5 SI mainly for a new summer unit since i didn't have GPS in the boat and with the intention of using the GPS for the ice at a minimum.  I figured it would be so/so on the ice but it actually worked really well in graph mode.  I am still fumbling around with some of the settings.  Naturally now that the new units have arrived i wish i would have waited for the newest offerings as they look to be a bit more geared toward the ice.
    • Your review is pretty much the same as my experience with my first gen Helix 5.  As a dual purpose unit it does fairly well on the ice but its a step below the dedicated ice units out there.  I bought mine because I do a lot of fishing from canoes so wanted a portable unit and it excels at that.  The fact that it works decently on the ice was a bonus.  I do ice fish but not as often as I used to and not enough to justify the cost of a dedicated ice unit.
    • That may be.  Like I said, I’m not into football THAT much so I’m basing my opinion on my gut and seeing the Vikings perform reliably for a change. I’ve actually had personal interactions with Green when he was coaching here.  He was OK but I wasn’t in awe of him.  I guess it’s more accurate to say I’m neutral there.
    • great pictures fellas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.
    • I finally got out to try my first gen helix 5 this weekend.  Fished in 8 feet of water next to a lx5 and Lx7 in an otter lodge.  The flasher screen was not the best.  It was slow to react to my jig movement and i tried a few things to speed it up to no avail.  I switched it over to the graph and it was much better.  I am somewhat used to the graph as i use both on the LX7.  I didn't have any trouble with interference but i was only using the 200hz on the Helix.  It was definitely not in the same class as the Marcum considering the Marcum is a dedicated ice unit but as a dual use unit for the summer and winter it has lived up to my expectations.  I believe the new units will be much better in this regard.  Battery life was pretty good as i fished for about 15 hours on Saturday and i would say i had about 60% battery left.  Overall i am happy with the performance on the first outing.  I will chime back in when i get into some deeper water to compare the interference.    
    • what the heck did i just watch???  lol
