      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 .

Time for Lemaire to be shown the door?

Recommended Posts

Lemaire coaches in the past. Defense is nice but scoring goals fills the seats. And it must be pretty hard to sign a free agent when he knows his main job will be checker.

Exactly and with a new coach you would think a superstar would want to come play in front of a sold out crowd every night in the state of HOCKEY!

Please Lemaire just leave.

Your prayers will be answered by the end of this season. I doubt he's coming back.

So, who does everyone think they will get to replace him? Mike Ramsey? We should have promoted the Aeros coach before he got hired by the Sharks.

He only has the tools he is given to work with. He proved with the Devils that his system works. It may be boring to watch but, it works. There is not a coach in the NHL that could win with the bunch they have in St. Paul. Thank the Lord the NHL gives you a point for just showing up, otherwise they may not have hit 50 points this year.

"Id tak two egg, sunny looking up into de sky"

"Id tak a glass of juuce, oraaange"

"And that will complete my ordor"

I too think he is out at the end of this season. End of an erra and I will be sad to see him go. That being said, it is time for a change the "team of 18000" will go on.

I have to agree with this. I do like Lemaire, I think he has done a great job with this team getting the organization on its feet, but now that we've got some things established its time for a different philosophy and direction. The Western Conference is too competitive to continue on like we have been.

LOL @ Red Lake, I do a really good Lemaire impression. I might have to use your dialogue next time.

I think he'll retire on his own. This organization would never done as well without him.

What impersonation? I'm in Montreal right now and I've been hearing that all week! smile

If Gabby would have been healthy enough to play in 50 games the Wild would be in the playoffs and you wouldn't be complaining. Have you complainers watched any of the games? The Wild very rarely get the calls, heck Boogie looks at another player and he is going to the box. Rolstan had his best season as a Wild player so if you know anything about hockey good defense creates offense. Playing the body creates turnovers which creates scoring chances. Is Keenen a better coach then Lameire? No he just has better talent.

You guys that want Lemaire gone are nuts. What's wrong with being in the playoffs every year? Even this year with all the injuries, we still have a shot.

I personaly, don't "want" him to go. I just have a feeling he will. A sign of a good coach is one that knows when it is time to go. I think he is ready to do just that. Would have liked to see him get a cup, but even without it, he has had a good run.

You can bad mouth his coaching style but you cannot question this man's heart or will to win. He just doesn't take any sh_t from players like Gaborik or any other high priced talent. I love it, personally. I could give two sh_ts about how great gabby is, if he doesn't play any defense or thinks he is above the team, sit his a$$ on the bench! I love a coach who isn't afraid, and if you lose J. Lemaire you will get some young guy who doesn't have the balls to do what is right.

Most hockey fans who coach from the couch don't have a clue what it takes to win. It isn't pretty but it is hockey in its purest form and that is what it takes to win.

redlake,

I agree with you, but don't you think Gabby has been playing pretty well? I think he looks better than he did last year, including his defense. He has even been delivering a few hits.

Won't pretent to be a hockey expert, but I think Jacques is a solid coach, he just can't make chicken salad out of chicken #$%^

Agree, we don't have the offensive horsepower. Especially if Gabby leaves.

I think alot of the better talent in the league doesn't want to play for a coach like Jaques, who tells you like it is. They have not been able to draw any quality talent through free agency over the last 8 years. It is either Doug R that can't get them here, or they don't come here because of the coach. You can't tell me these guys wouldn't want to play in a nearly full arena every home game. That said, Jaques has definately done a great job with what he's had to work with.

They should have traded gabby before he opted for surgery... bah.. he's a waste of money..

    • Well you did say sometimes it's hard to get your point across with this group.
    • Well a few days ago we got hit hard by a good cold front and the temperatures plummeted down into the 50s here in Islamorada, FL.  We also had another reinforcing front back that one up, so things stayed chilly.   The water in the backcountry bays dropped into the high 50s as well in some portions.  Though a day after each front passed the winds laid down and gave way to some epic fishing.  Today I had Pam and Lars down from Arkansas and we fished deep in the everglades.  We got out early and were loaded up with some nice lively shrimp.  When the water temps drop this far, usually everything is pretty keyed in on shrimp - they don't want to work too hard for that meal and expend a lot of energy.  Working them very slowly on the bottom, really just letting them lay and twitching every so often, works wonders.  Once we got set up and the tide started moving in, it was game on.  Pam and Lars each landed well into the double digits on snook, and quite a few 'big girls' for us... fish in the 8 to 12 lb range.  Multiple double headers it was a blast!  We also had quite a few black drum and nice redfish too.  Very good to see the reds as they've been hard to find especially in the summer time, as much of their habitat has been beat up due to algae blooms and grass die off.  But in the winter they do show up in the 'winter time holes' along with their cousins the black drum, snook, and sheepshead.  We also saw several small tarpon rolling about.  I didn't have much hope that they would bite but knew it was a possibility.  We kept throwing in their direction, and soon Pam hooked and landed a nice 25 lb tarpon!  Not to be outdone, Lars got one about an hour after that.  Backcountry SLAMS for both anglers, wow!  We continued catching fish for several hours it was just epic, also got a few trout mixed in which we kept for dinner.  I don't particularly like killing our drum, especially the redfish, due to the lack of numbers... and snook are currently out of season and also more of a gamefish for us too.  On the way home we hit the gulf side to look for some triple tail.  It was so calm and those fish like to lay on the surface near the crab buoys, sunning themselves and waiting for an easy meal.  We saw quite a few but mostly little guys, though we caught several and got one that was big enough for dinner too at least.  Just a banner day out of Islamorada in December fishing.  I have the same crew again tomorrow and then several days open next week, come on down the fishing is great!

    • I’ve never been to Ahlman’s but by the looks of their page, yah, probably a great resource too. Boone’s is similar in respects to offerings and massive showroom layout but I don’t think they have the gunsmithing depth of Ahlman’s.
    • I actually enjoyed this. LOL  I used to dive a lot, but not as good as these did.
    • Didn't you smoke one before watching? 
    • Uhhhhh... I for one am at a complete loss for words.
    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
