      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Just thought I would gripe a little here. Looking out the window at school and we are getting dumped on. On a bright note we are getting out early, so I will have time to spend in my rod building/ tackle shop. When will it end??? I need to get on some soft water and soon!!!

We got some snow down this way, but it all melted when it hit the ground. We have open water down here as well, and if the forecast is right it is supposed to be 50degrees on friday. So I might just have to get the boat out for the first time this year!! I don't have to go into school on friday because of my schedule, so I might just have to hit the lake! Summer really can't get here fast enough, even though I stay really busy with baseball down here during the summer I still make sure to get on the water whenever possible!

Bemidji State-Cornell Highlights | Interactive Bracket

Courtesy of Western Michigan

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Tyler Scoefield netted to goals to propel Bemidji State over Cornell 4-1 Sunday night at Van Andel arena to advance to its first ever appearance at the Frozen Four, becoming the first ever No. 16 seeded team in NCAA history to do so.

BSU goalie Matt Dalton stopped 60 of 62 shots on the weekend, earning a .970 save percentage and a spot on the Midwest Regional All-Tournament team. Scofeild's four goals and two assists were enough to earn him Most Valuable Player honors.

Cornell was first on the board at 12:25 of the second period. Keir Ross got a quick shot off a lucky bounce from Tyler Mugford's faceoff win. Ross's shot was redirected by Sean Collins and past Dalton to give the Big Red a 1-0 lead.

The Beavers answered just two minutes later at the 14:25 mark when Ryan Adams netted his first goal of the season. Scofield was able to gain control and push the puck back to Adams at the right point. Adams let loose a wrist shot that sailed through heavy traffic in front of Cornell goaltender Ben Scrivens and into the net. Scofield picked up the assist for his third point of the weekend.

Scofield put the Beavers ahead 2-1 at 4:05 of the third period. The BSU breakout started with Kyle Hardwick bumping the puck to Matt Read at the Bemidji State half-boards. Read connected with Scofield on a cross-ice pass on a 3-on-2 rush.

Scofield broke down the right wing and fired a quick wrist shot past Scrivens for his third goal of the tournament.

Bemidji State extended their lead to two with a goal courtesy of Matt Francis at 9:30 of the third period. After winning a battle on the right half-boards, Ben Kinne drove just below the goal line and flipped the puck to Scrivens' left. Francis fired home the loose puck with a Cornell defender in close proximity. Scofield's hot shooting continued as he got his second of the night and fourth of the weekend with an empty-net goal at 16:37. Fighting off a furious Cornell attack, Graham McManam nudged the puck up to Read. Read flicked it into the neutral zone to Scofield, who fired a wrist shot from just inside the red line into the open net.

In a scoreless first period Cornell had three power play opportunities and created some quality scoring chances, but thanks to an aggressive Bemidji penalty killing unit, was only able to come away with five shots on net. Cornell outshot the Beavers 26-21 overall.

Bemidji State made its third appearance in the Division I NCAA Tournament since 2000. Prior to earning DI classification, the team earned 13 NCAA Division II and III tournament berths in a 16-year span from 1983-98 and captured six national championships. The Beaver's win on Saturday in the Midwest Regional Semifinals marked just the second time a CHA team has won in the NCAA Tournament. Niagara was the first team to do so when they beat UNH in 2000.

Cornell returned to the NCAA Tournament for the 17th time in school history and the first time since 2000 after gaining an at-large selection.

Bemidji State now advances to face Miami on Thursday, April 9, at the semifinals of the Frozen Four in Washington D.C. Time of the puck drop remains to be determined.

    •   I doubt luck had much to do with it sir. 
    • I saw on a show about a guy living on a point on a lake that had many houses on poles in the water about 20ft from shore. Maybe about 3ft above the water. All the houses were full, It was cool to watch. Easier to maintain at that height, waist deep in water. 
    • I know folks who clean out the martin house's every year.....
    • I rinsed them and put them out whole.
    • Well, fellas,  lemme tell ya:  I've had one terrific life and done more things than you'd probably believe.  In fact I told my wife one evening shortly after we had moved to the lower 48, "I think you had best cool it with some of your recollections of our time and adventures in the North because I get the feeling most people won't believe you anyway. And to this day we don't shoot off our mouth too much just for that reason. EVERYBODY should be as lucky as I have been!!  
    • Sounds like there will be 17 guns offered!! Come  on the odds of winning a gun are great
