      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!!!

The case for Pat White...

Recommended Posts

As everyone knows, our weakest link is the qb. I'm not stating that Pat White is the absolute answer here or that we should draft him at 22. However, I believe that he is a player that we should keep an eye on for the beloved purple. From the mocks and rankings I've seen, white is projected anywhere from the 2nd round through the 5th. It's quite a wide range. I think that if he is available in the 3rd, that we will swoop him up as we don't have a 4th round pick and I really don't see him falling farther than that.

- He's a winner. He won consistently at West Virginia. This doesn't mean that this will translate to the NFL, but all things being equal, winners win.

- Shows up in the big games - He won 4 bowl games in his tenure, including a win over #3 ranked OK his junior year. He threw 0 interceptions total and had 330 yards in his finale.

- Although a little short for NFL QBs, he's not tiny and can move well. He's the same height as Brees and last I looked, he handled the height problem just fine.

- With him and AP in the backfield, it will present some major headaches for opposing Defenses. I hate that stupid Wildcat, but these 2 will really open up the run game.

- combine - he was extremely impressive at the combine with his arm strength and accuracy.

- He can also be moved to WR and return kicks. Both needs for the vikes if the QB position doesn't work out.

I'll take him in the 3rd and if they take him in the 2nd, I wouldn't be dissappointed. Consider me on the bandwagon.

I agree with you, I think if he is available in the 3rd...we should take him. I could even see them moving up in the third or late in the second to take him. Kind of an intriguing player...kind of like a Kordell Stewart. I don't want to compare him to Kordell Stewart, because he really wasn't very good, just mean in the way he can play more than one skill position.

Pat White needs to go to an offense that actually has some creativity to it. Chilly wouldn't know what to do with this guy and more importantly he'd probably be afraid to run the kinds of plays White would allow us to. We need some interior line upgrades and depth help this whole draft. You can really get some strong players on both the d-line and o-line in the 3rd thru 5th rounds. We really don't have many picks this year as well...I would think a team with multiple 2nd or 3rd round picks will take a flyer on him then.

Yup, hopefully Eben Britton will fall to us at #22. Not sure if I spelled his name right or not, but you know who I'm talking about...right?

I wouldn't mind White either. From what I have seen of him, he is pretty capable. I understand that chilly probably isn't the right mind for that kind of talent, but as was said, he can also move to return kicks and wr. There seems to be some upside to this guy. If he falls to us in the 3rd I would also scoop him up.

    •  Indeed I am pretty confident I will get one this weekend I am able to hunt fri to monday morning  
    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
