      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 .

(WCCO) San Antonio, Texas Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Tommy Kramer was arrested last weekend on suspicion of DWI, CBS affiliate KENS-TV in San Antonio, Texas is reporting.

Kramer was arrested in San Antonio after police pulled him over Saturday.

Officers said Kramer smelled of alcohol and was stumbling. An officer also reported Kramer called him "coach" and said Kramer claimed he once played for the Minnesota Vikings.

Kramer was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round in 1977 and played for the Vikings through the 1989 season. He then spent a year playing for the New Orleans Saints. He played for Rice in college

LOL!

I had seen first hand one of the crashes he was involved in on one of his dwi's.

Don't want to be a bummer , I just don't find alchoholism , DWI's or car wrecks to be that funny . Please take no offense . Just a differing opinion .

I have always liked Tommy Kramer. I hope he gets more help.

They used to call him "Two Drink Tommy" as that is all it took to get him drunk.

The Vikes are hopefully getting out of those ways. Don't worry about the sour people 4eyes I can see it was meant as a joke. Everyones sense of humor is different.

This is a total joke. Athletes, actors, you name it. Make enough money to own the world. The sad thing is us and our children grow up idolizing these (Contact Us Please). I've been there done it. Drinking that is. The sad thing is they are to stupid to learn from their mistakes. Just like that little Lindsey Lohan. All the money in the world but the booze and drugs are taking over her life. She will end up killing herself or sadly someone else.

Celebrities and sports stars are not the only people that deal with this stuff they are just the only people that get stories written about them. For every one celebrity like Lohan there are probably 1000 average joes facing the same problems but they are interesting enough to write articles about.

We working class slobs just love to see when somebody who has gained a certain amount of fame or wealth come crashing back to earth , don't we ? When some former athlete can't handle not being famous or rich anymore and drowns his misery in a bottle we take stabs at him and make it a joke but when its your brother or dad its a different story , isn't it ?. When Lohan or Spears act stupid and are in and out of rehab we almost get the feeling that they deserve it , don't we ? But if it is our daughters or sisters we do all we can to support them . I don't think that money or fame can buy a heathly mind and although I don't pity these people I do have certain amount of empathy for them . I feel as bad for these people as I would for a friend in the same situation and if we think that its subject matter for joking or ridicule then I would have to think that its because we are jealous that they have fame and fortune and have , for whatever reason , decided to squander it and we have never been afforded that same opportunity . Pretty sure that may be why envy is on the list .

musky you are right it is sad, my humor in it is more from shaking my head and laughing that he hasnt learned, or changed since he was a football player many years ago. I dont think its funny that he is still a drunk, just that he hasnt changed his ways. I liked the guy for a football player, he just had a lot of problems.

what I think is funny is all the people who think just because these people are celebrities, wether be athletes or actors and actresses that they are on this pedestal and are not allowed to have faults. They have fame and fortune which most dont but that doesnt mean that they dont have problems like the general public does. I'm sure they have bad days at work, marital problems,parenting problems just for some examples that many people have thus some celebs find their escape in a bottle of booze or illegal drugs or spousal abuse or child abuse or something NO IT'S NOT AN EXCUSE!! sometimes the media makes them more of an icon then they choose to be. The sad part is some who are in the everyday spotlight don't seem to learn from their mistakes or just plain choose to follow a path that will keep the media around them so they feel more accomplished and famous. FAMOUS PEOPLE ARE JUST AS HUMAN AS EVERYONE ELSE they make the same mistakes as many people who are just average joes.

Tommy K. and alcoholism....that shouldn't surprise anyone.

This is funny...but not "ha ha I can't stop laughing" funny...it's the "ha ha I can't believe this guy hasn't learned yet" funny.

For someone who has not played football for what 18 years? why is this even a story. He was also arrested a long ways from MN. Guess someone has an axe to grind. Being a celebrity never leaves you if you screw up.

I get what your saying 4Wander and I'm not at all trying to excuse bad celebrity behavior but can you imagine what it might be like for , what did we used to call him - 6 pack Tommy , to at one time be on top of the world and then nothing . Go from being the guy that everbody couldn't do enough for to the guy nobody will answer the phone for . A lot of them guys never make the adjustment , thats what I find to be sad . Then you got the Lohan type that their every move is to get them the spotlight and when they get it - the exact thing they have begged for now becomes their torment . Says a lot about that whole be careful for what you wish for thing , don't it ?

I do have to agree with the celebrity never leaves you. All in all Tommy boy made his impact as a QB I still remember the day he came into the game, I believe it was against the Cleavland Browns and the Queens were down big time. He tossed 4 TD's and they won the game on a hail mary pass at the end. I know there are a lot of people that just look for celebritys to screw up too but you would think that since they are or have been in the spot light they would learn to control their behavior a little better. Maybe he is just looking for the attention. Who knows. I don't know if any of you seen the Leno show Tuesday night but he for one isn't affraid to slam celebrities when they mess up. Poor Linsey!!!!! Now that was funny I don't care who you are. Lord please forgive me!!!! I appologize!!! Lohan must be feeling the pressure that she isn't getting enough attention due to Miss Hilton!!!!

Ah yes. Tommy Kramer. Anyone remember the quarterback controversy between Tommy twelve-pack and Wisky Wade Wilson? Those were the days. How about when Keith Millard got pulled over and told the officer that his arms were more powerful that his gun. I'd take 45-year old Anthony Carter over anyone we've got on the team now.

Keith Millard also rammed his car into the Hardees drive-in at training camp one summer in Mankato drunk as a skunk.

I think the funny part of the Kramer story is his calling the cops coach- if I was one of the officers busting him, I would probably have laughed at that one.

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
    • Finnish Flash
      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.   
    • cookie129
      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!
    • bbfenatic
      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am
    • ozzie
      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
    • cookie129
      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.
