      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 .

I was wondering if anyone is as happy as I am that Boogie is now with the WILD for 3 years. I just love it when he is on the ice I know he's not the most gifted skater blah, blah, blah. but when he's out there it sure is a he!! of alot of fun to watch and see what may happen I still get goose bumps when I watch the replay of game 4 of the Ducks playoff game after all the B.S. when the crowd started chanting Boogaard Boogaard and he skated out on the ice

I would not have been a happy fan if they would not have signed Boogaard. He is awesome to watch on the ice. He knows his role and what I like about him is once he has a guy hurt he will hold back(usually) and not totally destroy someone when he has a clear shot to do some serious damage. What does bother me is when several players from the opposing team will surround him and start pushing him and if he retaliates in the slightest he gets called for a penalty. Can't wait for fall fishing and watching the Wild again.

Some may not agree with me but for an enforcer he is actually a pretty good player.

I agree with you on that. Most enforcers are goons, not him. He was coming around towards the end of the season, getting more scoring chances and getting in front of the net. Going to be fun watching him the next 3 years

Huge Boogaard fan here. While back I believe Fox 9 did a little piece on him and his brother who operate a hockey fighting school.

I think Derek is great moving and shaking in front of the net, crashing the net.

He is needed so other thugs don't run our guys and leave them splattered all over the plexiglass. Believe me, other guys think twice about doing the above because they know they will have to answer the bell with Boogey.

If you don't like hockey don't watch. He is a big part of the team!

I also like the fact that the other team is usually so focused on taking a run at him etc. that he either draws a penalty or we make a big play.

Why does LeMaire not seem to like the guy though? Every time you read something in the paper from Coach about Boogaard it's always "He's got to get better." This was even last week.

I guess he doesn't want him for just the enforcer role, he wants him to produce. More like old Basil McRae used to be for the North Stars.

I think he likes him I think he is just trying to push him to get him to keep working on being a better hockey player not just an enforcer.

Dont get me wrong, I like watching boogaard skate, its kind of comical and he makes the kind of boering minnesota offence a little more fun to watch.

But when it comes down to it, he is nothing but a GOON.

Most people in Hockey know it exspecially Lmaire.

He only plays like 3 to 5 minnutes a game, But somehow he is a good player? Not sure how that is possible.

Now I agree he is not in the running for League MVP, and I see LeMaire's point, but he is good for one other thing: He sells a few more tickets. Has to be considered in this day and age.

He protects our good players, He might not be the best skater but other teams know if they cheap shot one of our best skaters, they will have to deal with the boogie man. he is essential to have on our team

Just like back in the day with Basil Mcrae and Shane Churla. Any team messed with Broten, Modano any of the good players back then they would have to answer to these 2 guys. They arent the best skaters or puck handlers but they protect our best.

Once again, I agree for the most part. All Im saying is if He is your favorite wild player, your more of a UFC fan than you are a Hockey fan. I love him, but as far a skill, not to sure about that.

Also, now I wish the old stars did not have a couple of those tough guys when madano was playing. Let guys rough the old rat face up all they want. grin.gif

(Yeah, Im still a little bitter about the whole thing, norm green and every thing else).

How about that Burns? He is going to be one fine player for years to come.

I love Boogie, but I would trade him for big Georges Laraque any day. Georges has skill and toughness. I would REALLY like to see the Wild make a run at Dion Phaneuf next year when he is a free agent. That kid is a great skill player and tough as nails. He made Boogie look like a fool a couple times last year.

Hockey Guy- I agree that the Wild should go after Dion Phaneuf. He is a very good hockey player. Big shot, heavey hitter, and no one messes with anybody when he is out there. Plus he is young. Very fun to watch him when he is on TV.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.
