      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 .

It's going to be tough especially when they have to leapfrog a couple of teams to get in. They need to score more goals plain and simple. We will see what they do at the deadline. I hope they are sellers myself.

Yeah...they played a good game last night. I counted at least two posts and a crossbar in the third period off of Wild shots.

With their road schedule, they have a long, uphill battle if they want to squeak into the playoffs.

Any predictions for tonight? I think we will win a 3-2 game.

As for gaborik, i hope he goes somewhere else. too much distraction, im afraid though we'll have to add him to the list of superstars minnesota has given up like. .

I see that the Rangers placed Aaron Voros on waivers. They also put Reitz on waivers, who the Wild traded to obtain Dan Fritsche.

What? I don't think gaborik is anywhere near superstar status confused

Get rid of him and get a couple more Koivu's or Anti's in here we don't need another bench warmer!

yeah, he'll hit the free agent market in the off season and leave us empty handed. Im thinking if he wasnt injured and skating right now they woudl have tried to get something for him, but with the way he is now he has no market value.

Think of what would have happened if DR would have gotten rid of Gabby before the season started like he said he was going to. (He said before the season started that Gabby would not be starting the season with the Wild if he were not signed) Instead we get a waste of a season, a team with lots of play making ability and no play finishing ability. We need to make a move for someone who can score this summer and we have pretty good trade bait in Harding. It will be interesting to see how DR manages to screw it up...

Negative but I agree with everything OnAfly says. Gabby should have been traded before the season started, DR couldn't make a deal and now we end up with nothing. Our farm system doesn't look like there is any NHL talent either so it might be time to blow up the team and start over.

Sorry for the negativity, it's been a long day. I do think that Gabby should not have been on the team at the beginning of the season, though.

its going to be a long night to if your watching the game. DR should really start to hear it for his lack of trying to get some people in here to help from the start of the season. Sold out arena and so-so product

    • I've got a small one waiting. Just trying to find time when I and the smoker will be in the same spot for enough hours! I have a good feeling that the week after Deer Hunting closes and Ice forms. The smoker will be doing a lot of catch up!!!
    • I wouldn't even bother going to NoDak before Nov 1. Too many yahoos. There's still plenty of guys up there later, but at least most of them are legitimate hunters
    • You can get longer but at a premium, and I'm not a huge fan because of the different firmness from back to bottom along with the groove makes sleeping awkward.  You could make one easy enough or modify a futon.  Find a used one and gut the hardware out to make your own that will blend in better.
    • $4.59/lb not sure how good or bad that is. But I am more intrigued by size and experiment with that rather than a full packer.
    • 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.
