      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 .

And after...

Could maybe be a good game in a great rivalry. 110 times they have played with a 55 each split although I found this little tidbit since Art moved the team...

"The Steelers have won 15 of 18 meetings since the Browns returned, including nine straight by an average of 15.6 points.

"You could put this game in April and Browns-Steelers is important," Cleveland kicker Phil Dawson said. "This isn't just any week, it's Steelers Week."

The Browns finished 2007 with their best record since their return to the league, going 10-6 and tying the Steelers for first place in the AFC North. Another head-to-head sweep, however, gave Pittsburgh the division title and helped keep Cleveland out of the playoffs for the fifth season in a row.

The teams expected to once again battle for the division crown in 2008, but if one week is any indication, they appear to be headed in opposite directions. The Steelers routed Houston 38-17 on Sunday at Heinz Field, while the Browns' dismal play from a winless preseason appeared to carry over in a 28-10 home loss to Dallas."

Jay - Thanks I needed that, the good news is Rosa and I both picked Pittsburgh on our football tickets and Cleveland is getting 7, not enough for the Brownies. Pittsburgh in a romp and Rosa wins $55. If this wind keeps up i'll bolt from the game and go for some eyes.

Dang the Steelers didn't cover for Rosa, good game in tough wind conditions Jay. The way things are going Pittsburgh will have the division wrapped up by week 6. Big Johnny Ice you out there? Romeo should be fired. If he put more time into clock management than the post game buffet he wouldn't be half bad, but he does some of the most frustrating stuff when the clock's winding down. Good job Steelers...

It was an ugly win but a W none the less. Browns clock managment was bad at the end of the first half and even worse at the end of the game. Your D didnt look too bad for the most part but we definatly were not fireing on all cylinders.

Your recivers suck! I would trade Edwards and Winslow for a few used gear bags. They are cry babies who have proven nothing...

Nate Washington and Hines Ward had a couple of drops too pal...

These first two games were essentially the Brown's receivers pre-season, let me explain.. Edwards didn't play but one pre-season game (foot laceration), Winslow 4 drives maybe and Stallworth MIA all preseason and two regular season games... When they start clicking they will be putting up numbers like last season. They will bounce back just like our defense did in this game. BTW there is no way the Steelers are beating the Giants or the Cowboys so put that in your loss column right now... Congrats on the win in some tough windy conditions. As far as the botched TO and clock management, Romeo can't handle the time pressure he's never good at that stuff... O-2 against the Cowboys and Steelers the top 5 toughest teams in the NFL, I'm not shocked... Ratturds and Bungholes up next will get it straightened out or it will be the end of Crennel...

About a minute before Hines firts drop I said to dad "one thing about Hines is he almost never drops the ones you should always catch"! Boom, two easy catches slip out. At least he's always smileing, haveing fun, and looking to de-cleat someone!

I have no use for Winslow! He was a winebag makeing demands before ever stepping on the field in the NFL. When he was holding out before playing a game I would have given him his walking papers!

Last game of the season is the rematch. Hope it means something but will probably be awarm-up to a long golf season for your team whistle

That's why these guys should all start there careers at 2 years at the minimum wage before they start wining about cash, it's the system and the almighty dollar it's a shame that the love of the game takes a back seat.

    • The gobbler came in and beat the jake down I shot him and five seconds later the hen decoy fell over from not being able to stake it down in the frozen ground.
    • I don't have near the birds featherslayer has. My groups were one gobbler with three or four  hens. There was zero gobbling on the roost both mornings. When they hit the ground there was a lot of gobbling and strutting for a couple of hours. The one I shot this morning answered my calls a  couple of times but was out of sight the whole while. He stopped gobbling for a hour and a half when suddenly there was a gobble and close. I called a little bit and he popped out of the trees about eighty yards away and stood there in full strut and just checked things out. Did some soft calling and here he came in full strut and went right to my jake decoy and gave him a beat down. That was all it wrote for him. Classic case of him losing his hens and coming to check out that hen he had answered after flydown. This is a little area I'm hunting and I had let a jake go last year and I'm hoping this was him. Good luck to the rest of our teammates.
    • On my first sit right now. 40 birds in the field, at least 5 shooters, 2 of those are very nice. Think they have to come by me to roost. Fingers crossed.
    • Good job buddy. Glad to see you wiped that skunk off the new bow.
    • Way to close the deal guys!
    • I would always use tree tubes for any hardwoods. If it's small enough to need a tube for protection from deer, rabbits, other... than use the tube. If your putting in the time and money to plant them, you might as well protect them.    Lots of them are on the market. I have only used one type of tube myself. Tubex- combitudes (spelling?). If you are worried about deer you should get the 5 foot tubes. Since that is about the upper limit of their browsing heights. I've used the fiberglass green stakes from L & M instead of buying the stakes from tree tubes suppliers. The only problems i have had so far is a curious bear, who wanted to chew a few tubes.    The other thing you should think about talking to your local DNR forester. They can help you to make sure you are planting trees that are correct for your soils. And may be able to help financially to purchase tubes. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/cfm-map.html    Hope this helps, 
    • Thanks. Even got the itch to take a spin after seeing other bikes out today. Just a short ride down to the car wash to knock the dust off. Should have worn gloves though as it was a little nippy on the fingers. Maybe Ill run my Super Glide down there tomorrow
    • Birds in my area are too responsive, and yes i had 2 big fellas come in to my 1 tom and 2 hen set up. Accually i had the whole flock coming in and it was load with the hens and all the toms. One thing i fogured out is if there is alot of birds dont be soft calling. I tried to top the old hen and thats what pulled them my way. Good luck to my team and hopfully everybody could have a morning like I did, it wont be forgotten.
    • Well sounds like all went well. My wife just called and picked her up. She does have a drain tube but according to the wife she's acting normal..... For her!
