      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 .

Go Pack Go!

Recommended Posts

I am a Vikings fan first, but then a fan of football and our division.

If the Vikes don't win the division, I will root for the bears. If the Pack would have one the division, I would have rooted for them in the playoffs. I have never heard a Packer Backer state this though...and I know a lot of them.

I hope the Vikes do make the playoffs...and I hope Detroit beats the Pack the last game of the year....

Packers don't have a chance next week against the Bears, they will have "packed" it in by then, wait, to late, that was yesterday.

Are you kidding me Hammer Handle, if the Vikings make the playoffs I'm going to be their biggest fan! I want them to win the Super Bowl big time so all you Queen fans can quit your crying!! smile

"Go PACK GO" actually has been my attitude for a looooong time. GO...GO...GO...ANYWHERE, just GO! grin

I have NOT been a fan of their's for a long time. I think the Favor era, a "mouthy" bro-in-law, and the Packer- backer fans hatred for the VIKINGS, may have had something to do with it.....

In reality, now though, I do like Aaron Rodgers, and their coach much better....It would be great if they had a great game against the Bears! GO PACKERS!

Lets see the vikings win against the Falcons and then we can discuss the possibility of them getting the #2 seed. Lets see the vikings over the falcons and see the panthers take down the giants. Then MN can steal the #2 seed from the giants the following week.

Never fear, ikatcher, those powerful men are working hard all week to assure another Viking victory. You can see them at the courthouse every day. Of course, I am referring to the lawyers for the Williams sisters! I guess we can make that, the Williams Sister now that one of them got a boo boo, probably from OD'ing on diuretics, probably weakened his muscle fiber with the loss of all that water. The lawdogs won't let the Viking down!

Lol... Jeeze Windy... Give it up already.

The Vikes are not winning the division because the Williamses took diet pills.

The Bears are inconsistent, the Packers org is troubled, and the Lions... they're just pathetic.

The sooner you face reality (that the Vikes are simply the best team with the best talent in the worthless NFC north), the sooner you can get over the slight you have against the "Williams sisters" and begin to feel good about life again.

Just think about your annual trip to Cass Lake next summer. That should help you forget your grudge.

Those of us REAL Packer fans are content with a 2-14 season...as long as we beat the bears twice. 4-12 is better having beaten the bears twice, then vikes twice...6-10 is really nice with having beaten all division opponents twice. Then there are the excellent years where we end up in the playoffs then making it to the superbowl and the best years where we win it.

This year...I was predicting 8-8..I didn;t figure the majority of our problems would be on the defensive side of the footbll tho.

Oh, and for the record...if the Vikes win the division, I will root for them to win the NFC....I will be wasting my time, but I will root for them none the less.

Better luck next year to all of our divisions subpar teams.

    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
    • This is a common misconception with LTIR. I too, thought it meant we "saved" money until I read up on it recently. What LTIR actually allows is for a team to go OVER the cap during a player(s) on LTIR, but once they return, they have to get back under the cap. So, true, it would allow them to spend more, but over the long haul it wouldn't be something they could go out and get someone to fill in without haven't to do something when the LTIR players return.
    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.  
    • Only made it out for one day for resident opener this last weekend but we had a great hunt. Took the day off and got out yesterday and battled the heat. I almost chose to call it quits early but went slow and took our time but had to take lots of breaks in the field. It was 74 degrees out and if I found water the dog got dunked. Was pretty slow day didn't see a single bird or shoot my first bird until 3:30pm. Ended up shooting all 3 of my birds in the same WIA in the span of an hour. Dog pointed a group of 3 hens in the same spot and then another by itself. Went about 30 yards further and dog locked up. Flushed bird it was rooster and dropped it on the first shot. As I shot 2 other roosters got up in gun range. With just one shell left in my O/U I rushed a shot going for a double, doh. Focused on where downed bird went down and sure enough another rooster gets up in the same spot it went down. Rushed both shots thinking it was the same bird I already knocked down. doh x2 Fortunately dog was able to retrieve first bird so was nice to put one in the vest for our first bird of the year. Took a water break and regrouped as that was a lot of excitement in a short amount of time and dog was overheated. Sat there for about 20 mins and let dog catch his breath. Started working field again and we no more and got started and dog locks up. Flush bird and its a rooster and he only needed one shot before he folded. Retrieved to hand and continued on.   Continue working to end of the property and saw a few more hens and one other rooster that I didn't want to drop over the water and thick cattails. He didn't fly far and hoped to get him on the way back as we walked side we hadn't covered yet. Dog locked up again on the other side and I let the bird get out a ways. Dropped it on the first shot and figured we were done for the day as it folded hard. It ended up being a runner and took off straight for the mud and thick cattails. We tried to track it, found some feathers so thought we were right on it. But once the dog got buried deep in the thick stuff it was just too warm. No scent going through there and he was getting way too overheated so I called him off the track.  We did end up getting our 3rd bird of the day with another nice point and retrieve. Was a good day to be out despite the heat. I spend the rest of the day scouting out other areas to hunt. Put about 350 miles on the truck and other than that one walk didnt see anything else. Did shoot a couple coons though and found a great set of antlers.  Unfortunately I forgot to bring my gopro and only took a couple pics.
    • I have had good luck with the eagle claw inline reel and love the freespool option. I have 3 of them and they all work great.
