      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 .

Should be free as well. Tammy wanted to go to the SU game since I had a Scout event in the AM but I'm sure I can talk her into it. She loves to eat as much as I do!

I just got off the phone with Senoir Franky...we took care of the foreign lady on my voicemail...she got fired.

Franky and Cindy are in for sure! We need to get some more confirmations ASAP so I can get the final details under way.

There is also a bachelors table open for those of you that have the fishing sickness so bad that a woman won't tolerate you. That would be for Kyle, Thunder and my buddy Scott. Everyone needs to be there from our crew...PERIOD!!! I will be working, but I want all of you to have a great time. I'll be able to come out a few times during the festivities and then for good when things wind down. I have facilities at my house for a few more people to stay overnight if we want to have an after dinner gathering at my house and no one wants to drive a distance back home wink Just no Spooge on the furniture boys cry

Chef - sounds like we will have quite a crowd. Unless a bunch of people have a problem with the later seating? Lets roll with whatever time you think will work best...

For those that have never been there - the Copper Turret is amazing! And im not just saying that because of my friendship with Doug.

The absolute best product available prepaired, cooked, and presented in creative and awesome ways!

    • What are they running per pound?  I would be all over it if I wouldn't have just got done doing a 12 pounder on Monday . It turned out awesome... Here is what I did. Smoke setting for 2 hrs (may be able to get by an hr with the smaller brisket) Bump temp up to 225 and leave uncovered Double wrap in foil at 160 internal meat temp Pull off at 200 internal meat temp, wrap it in a towel and let it rest for 1 1/2 hrs in a cooler
    • Redirect your anger toward NCHC because its their fault this game is not televised. BigTen network and FSN offered to air it, but NCHC chose to keep it "in-house". Its all a money grab. They are hoping that people flock to their streaming service at the tune of $25 just for this game. Nope, I've got better things to do.
    • Scrapes and Rubs started popping up first week of October. The young bucks are doing most of the activity and most of it done at night or right at dawn or dusk. Monday night had 3 bucks- spike, fork and a 6 pointer come in to light rattling at 6:50 pm. They worked 2 fresh scrapes that I had put buck urine in and the fork and 6 pointer had a 5 second sparring bout then went on about there business feeding together.
    • It took Garnett, Sprewell, and Cassell about 15 games to gel. We'll have a much better feel for this team after about 10 games.
    • The walleye bite remains strong!  Report is very similar to last weeks. Walleyes are staged in front of Pine Island, Graceton Beach and Zippel Bay in 18-30'.  Anglers sorting through a few small fish for every keeper.  Most anchored up with jig and shiner.  Pink, pink/white and gold have been the best colors. Reefs holding fish as well.   Rainy River anglers finding success up and down the river.  Schools of shiners coming into river randomly right now.  When they do, the walleyes are close behind.  Some days excellent, some days catching fish but not a slam dunk based on whether shiners are moving through.  Vertical jigging tipped with a shiner while anchored is the go to method. Some anglers trolling crankbaits with success as well.  Smallmouth bass, pike and crappies showing up.    Up at the Northwest Angle, in MN waters walleyes are crushing jig and shiners. Orange and chartreuse were the hot colors this week. Big pike being caught trolling minnow baits.  In Ontario waters, minnow/shiner have been effective off of points at depth of 18-26' while anchored or trolling.  In addition to walleyes, crappies on fire and jumbo perch active!  Some muskies being caught trolling.  
    • Well, some good things, some bad things... We didn't pull of the win on the road as I'd hoped, but I think there were some positive take-aways... Defensively, we aren't fixed, but we are looking better. Taj jumped off the screen last night with his aggressive D. I think his presence will help a lot! We played good defense at times, but it was VERY streaky. It seemed that throughout the night SA went up by 8-10, then we buckled down to pull with a bucket or tied it up, repeat... Butler looks like he needs a few more games to gel with the boys, but I think his addition can't be overstated. If even for one game, he seemed to light a fire under Wiggins. If we can get some form of consistent 3 point shooting, we will be talking a lot more about wins than losses this year!
    • Way to go B$G 10 hockey, probably one of the greatest rivalries in hockey, Gophers and Fighting Hawks, this weekend and it's not televised.
    • I saw a couple smalls bucks sparring this morning. There was a small doe near them and one of the bucks chased her around for a little bit. 
    • I know they drum quite a bit in the spring but I've been hearing drumming this fall. I'm not hearing as many as I do in the spring. But I'm sure hearing a good number of them drum  Are they  searching for a mate in the fall?
