      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 .

Has anyone looked at the poll

Recommended Posts

on ESPN.com this morning? The question is would you rather have Brett Favre as your starting QB this season or would you rather have your current #1? Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Iowa are all voting in favor of having Favre.

I dont get it. We might not make it to the Super Bowl this year with Tavaris, but why do we think that Brett Favre is our automatic ticket to the show? I just cannot wrap my mind around the concept of Vikings fans wanting Brett Favre on their team and cheering for him.

I know that there is no chance in [PoorWordUsage] that the Vikes will acquire him, but I am not especially proud of my fellow Vikings fans at this point.

I wonder what it would be like to have the future governor of Wisconsin as the Vikings Q.B.? I wonder if that would have any impact on his run for governacy?

I don't like it. If you win the SB with him, then you never hear the end from the cheese heads. He's Decent, but work with T-Jack and get him to be a good QB and if not, then you better look elsewhere after this year.

Thinking about it a little bit, the question is kind of vague. There could be a quite a few Packer fans in Minnesota and the other states as well, but I still think there are a lot of Minnesota fans that want Favre to start for the Vikings and that is what sickens me.

I would take him!

As far as the cheeseheads loving it...they certainly would not...even if they say they will.

I would take him just to rub it in their faces, whether he wins or loses.

T- Jack is the main man in the coach;s eye, I think Childress will either sink or swim with T-Jack, Oh Well prolly his last year anyway.

PLANS TO RETIRE FAVRE’S JERSEY ON HOLD

Posted by Mike Florio on July 24, 2008, 2:13 p.m.

Packers president Mark Murphy announced moments ago at a press conference held in conjunction with the team’s annual shareholders meeting that plans to retire Brett Favre’s jersey are now on hold.

Earlier this year, the team had announced that Favre’s No. 4 would be retired on the first game of the regular season, on the evening of September 8 against the Vikings.

This development could mean several things. Maybe the Packers now think Favre will be playing for them on September 8. Or maybe he’ll be playing elsewhere, and they now want to wait for him to finish his career. Or maybe he’ll be wearing a white-and-purple jersey during said September 8 game.

Or maybe the Packers are just [PoorWordUsage] off at him for creating such a mess and they’re going to wait a few years before setting aside his number. It’s not like they’re going to issue it to someone else in the interim.

One good thing to come of all this grin , its almost worth loosing a draft pick wink

I'm against it! So lets take a pole on who wants Farve.

For those that want Favre T Jack is not that bad give him a chance we got rid of one reciever that couldnt hold the ball. We may have a defense that can back him up.

T-Jack has my vote.

Although I hope he develops (ugh, I'm tired of hearing that word) into a serviceable QB for us, he may not be the answer for this team. If that's the case then we'll move on to someone else.

I do not want all of the HASSLES and DISTRACTIONS that would come along with Favre. I also don't want to have to listen to every announcer oohing and gooing non-stop about Favre while I'm trying to watch my team this year.

Finally, I don't want to feel this knot in the pit of my stomach all year long from watching Favre wear purple. Your second cousin may be smokin hot, but you know darn well that it just ain't right for you to be looking at her that way.

I dont want Farve here in MN.. The way I see it, he is only good for this upcoming season only.. After that, he probably will retire... I dont see Vikings getting a superbowl ring with Farve anyways. Thus, I would rather have Vikigns train a younger qb to be our qb of the future then have Farve.

Do you think we could get Osama Bin Laden to come over to our team too?? Maybe we would have a better chance at winning the war!

Brent the player would be a good addition for a year or two and then maybe a good backup for another year or so. Brent the sideshow (Madden, ESPN, Packer fans, yada yada) would be a disaster for the Vikes. Unfortunately the sideshow comes with the player - I would pass on Brent Favre

Yes, I would take him as a QB. Is he our answer? No. But T-Jack is not ready yet....

As a Vikings fan I think you would have to put me on suicide watch if he ever played for us.

    •     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
