      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 .

Recommended Posts

Greetings FM/Football Faithful. I will be putting up a sign up for a FM Salcap league over the weekend. Check back for more details.

It's almost that time of year!!!!

Greetings all.

Here is the sign up information

League name: FishingMinnesota

Id#1614

password:wehavemorefun

*************************************

Please read the league rules when you sign up if you haven't played before. Rosters must be completely filled out to receive points. QB,RB,RB,WR,WR,WR,TE,DEF,K make up the scoring. Scoring and salary details can be found when you sign up.

This is a free league available to anyone. Nothing is on the line other than pride. Winner can put 2008 Fishing Minnesota Salary Cap Fantasy Football Champion in their signature line. Lastly, I encourage the same type of information sharing as last year. My plan is to post weekly picks for the week and possible sleepers on this thread. I will probably announce my roster before each week so it won't be any secret you have to wait until game day for. The idea is to play in this league for fun (We have more fun!) and win your other cash leagues with what you learn from others or observe.

Good luck and sign up before September 4!

Bad news-You can be in multiple yahoo salcap leagues, but you are stuck with the same roster...I may have to rethink tipping my hand each week frown

Props to the guys that scored big with Rivers, Barber, Parker, or McNabb.

Should be a heckuva season. Don't forget to get your picks in before Sunday. The only time some guys are cheaper was last week, so spend carefully!!!

Kinda nervous with Peterson's sore hammy. Right now Lynch is very attractive, and his team has a great schedule for the rest of the season.

I made a couple changes to free up some cap room. Hated to get rid of Jackson, cause I think Philly has a nice offense and he needs a makeup game for last week's flub (and he's cheap). Also hated to ditch Shockey, cause he might go off with Colston out, but I needed to open up some salary.

I'm hoping to squeak out Brees through Colston's injury, but I have my eye on Rodgers. Weak division and if can keep up with Dallas he'll be okay. Brees I think has more value to the end of the year. Had a great first weak and poor second week.

34 point separate the top 5 of 10 teams. Very competitive group, which is good to see. This is the first week of BYEs (unless you want to count the Hurrican-forced BYE in Houston), so it will be interested to see who elects to keep the value through the BYE or sell a fast riser to get the points.

Starting to wonder if I should have swapped AD and Lynch. I bet he'll have another 2 TD week. But you can never count out Peterson. When he's getting his full workload he will be primed for a 200 yd, 2/3 TD day. Think I'll nurse Cal Johnson through the BYE as I think he's ready for a 8-10 TD year.

I'm debating on selling Peterson also. But just when I'm ready to click the button to make a sale, I always remember that he could easily go off for 200 yards and 2 TD's any week.

Can you really say that about any other back right now?

Well, I stayed the course, thousand points of light, won the league going away. Michael Turner, Drew Brees, Adrian Peterson, and Calvin Johnson were guys that I figured would have good years and were relatively inexpensive. Overall my philosophy is changing...you can't pick the hot guy each week without stumbling a few times, so you're better off sticking with a guy the whole year. I made that mistake last year when I figured Wes Welker would get 8 TDs and 1000 yards. Well, after week 5 he had only 1 TD, so I cut him. Well, he got to his numbers, I just wasn't patient...and it cost me first place. I settled for runner up. Points are cumulative, so you have to take your licks. You won't be high score every week, but you'll be consistent. I think I was high score 3 or 4 times, but I consistently performed well.

I don't know if I'll do a FM league next year. I liked it better when we shared our perspectives going through the weeks, who we thought was primed for a big week, who was cheap but would break out for a week, rookies, new kickers, etc. Since you can only have one Y! team, we had to wear poker faces and hide our hands. With the way the economy is, I'm glad I won my money salcap league this year...I think I'll have a few new reels on my Christmas rods!

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
