      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 .

Gophers vs Badgers

Recommended Posts

Pretty disappointing. Total freefall mode for the Gophers. Still, with the expectations that were in place for the squad, you gotta take what you have and be thankful after dropping three that you still have 2 games left.

Wow, what happened to the Gophers? In the first half they could do no wrong, now they can't do anything right. What a turnaround by the Badgers.

Actually, just the second quarter grin That game got ugly quick after halftime.

Yeah, really disappointing loss by the Gophs after a great first half. Once again Minnesota couldn't run the ball. Weber had some nice runs in the first half, but there wasn't much from the running backs.

[PoorWordUsage] the second half.

Maybe Wi. just wore them down like they are built to do? That O line of the Badgers is a big outfit. Mn. is very undersized in most positions and slow in the others. wink

They do have a couple of undersized linemen on both sides of the ball, which has been the issue with the Gophers in years past. One good thing about this Gopher team is that they are very young and have very few starting seniors on either side of the ball to replace for next year. Next year's defense should be very good if they can find a pass rushing end or two. The linebackers are on the small side, but they play fast, tackle well and get to the outside. The offensive line is young with no starting seniors. Hopefully a couple of them can bulk up, but personally I think it will take another starter or two like Matt Carufel to really make them good. Brew and his Crew are trying to recruit a few very good linemen both here in Minnesota and also nationally, so it would be nice to see a few of them sign. As far as the offensive weapons, Brandon Green is a true freshman this year and shown his talent. The combination of a more experienced Brandon Green lined up opposite of Eric Decker could be very dangerous next year, that is if Weber realizes he can go to someone else besides his #1 receiver. My biggest gripe is that they have to improve the running game, and not just having the quarterback run. So again, hopefully they can improve the offensive line.

    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
    • Coulda stopped the story there. Already too much work!
    • It wasn't easy. I had to marry a Finn and be in good standing with MIL to get my foot in the door.   I then meet Matti Nykänen at a Pikkujoulu Party  when he noticed I had a new Nokia phone and asked to see it.  We talked for hours about our ski jumping days over a loaf of Pulla. Later the conversation turned to ice fishing and Nils Master.  His uncle was a sharpener in Finland and planned to come to the USA and sharpen. Said he could make a lot of money.   Turned out he wasn't authorized by Nils Master and his true intent was to smuggle brown bread in the US and in doing so lost his visa.  It was a huge embarrassment to his family and to Finland.   Finland needed a sharpener in the US but I was a Norwegian.   After some arm twisting by my MIL I was allowed to be trained but I had to sign a sworn document not to pass anything on to either Norway or the Russians. Even then I wasn't allowed to see how the blade was made, only how to sharpen and reshape a blade that needed reshaping.  Retire,  exercise and a Finnish Brown Bread is the key to a long life and you don't need to smuggle it. I order it online from New York and it keeps good for years.    
    • I drink Grain Belt and Schell's all the time. Buy Local!  
    • Wild playing very well in all facets of the game right now...fun to watch...Toronto is no slouch even without Matthews.
    • And if you went to Italy, they have all that stuff that is bitter.  It is a matter of taste for sure.   BTW, hops is (or was) added to beer as a preservative as well as a flavor.   Personally I don't care for that weird stuff, but do like an IPA on occasion, or a Grain Belt for old time's sake.   
    • Yes. And if you got to the southwest part of the country they have some of the best wine on the planet as well. I was introduced to German beer there in the 80's and it was a learning experience. Bars with room temp kegs and either Dunkel or Licht beer. They know how to do it right.
