      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 .

Am I the only one that thinks the Vikes will go 8-8 at the very absolute best this season? The Dummies I am referring to in the headline is the new Vikes commercials with the dummies claiming the Vikes will go to the Super Bowl this year- they either need to yank these ads or have new ones made where someone is slapping some sense into these (Contact Us Please). Actually- leave the ads on TV- I need a good laugh every once in awhile. BTW- I truly believe 8-8 is a pipe dream so please don't say I am dreaming, I know it isn't going to happen. (7-9 is my guess)

They've got one of the best defenses in the league. With any help at all from the offense and a little luck 8-8 is not out of the question.

Maybe they will be the surprise team of the league. No wait I am dreaming. I am a die hard fan but even a diehard has to have some common sense. No names getting it done??? Good luck. I hope by December I can look back at this post and say I was wrong, but highly doubt it. I know the defense will be there but even if the score is 7-0 or 3-0 they still count as a loss.

One of the best defenses?? C'mon, where did they finish vs the pass last year and they lost Tomlin. I say 2-14. Plus, ChiliDog is a buffoon. My reasons they will suck:

worst pass defense in league

ChiliDog

No QB

ChiliDog

No WR

ChiliDog

No "star" power

ChiliDog

No history of winning

Childress does need to go- he reminds of that nerdy guy from the old Burt Reynolds-Marilu Henner show Evening Shade.

Slaughtered by a MLB??? There will be pain felt, no doubt, but not from AP, I can't wait to see the slow-mos of Urlacher eating his chin strap grin.gifgrin.gif Suprise team, yes. Playoffs? Probably not. 8-8 seems fair.

I think they will be better than last years team and remember they get to play Greenbay twice. 8-8 (which could make a wildcard)

I love the Vikes but am realistic. Id love to have 8 games that were good to the end but will settle for 8 halves.

Quit setting up the Viks for failure. Why must you pick apart all the negatives of the team. I know it can be comforting at the end of the season to tell everybody "I knew the vikings were going to stink, I said at the begining of the preseason they'd be 3-13, yadda, yadda, yadda". I don't know why I waste my time reading people talking smack about MY VIKINGS. If your predicting 3-13 then don't watch them this year and do something productive with your time this fall. I on the other hand, will be cheering on the Viks with a cold beer in my hand!

P.S. They WILL be 12-4 at least!!! and I can't wait to tell you at the end of the regular season, I told you so.

If you can not be oppitimistic and enjoy the game then you can not be a fan. A fan will be optomistic and cheer until the game or season is so far gone. then they will just sit and cheer the good plays no matter the final result.

Fan short for fanatic.

      It's been a 1/32 oz. unpainted jig head & a small split shot along with a crappie minnow for me most of the time. Still barely see the rod tip load or wiggle a little on the bite. Even tougher with the wind lately & 20' or more down.

      Any channel on any lake is dangerous.

      We are done as of Saturday as well. Was fishing in 35 feet in Smarts Friday and had a monster, monster fish on. Thought I was snagged for a few minutes, but then felt the wiggling. Fought if for probably five - ten minutes (drag flying out) and then up came an eight inch walleye. Never saw the monster, but guessing it was massive fish, perhaps a muskie? Anyone else ever have this happen?

      Hey I am planning on ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka this winter with a friend and I am using a snowmobile to get to the lake from the trails. I would enter onto the lake in Orono off the Luce line trail and end up in Stubbs bay. I was reading on other forums saying avoid the channels but it seems to be the only way to get around the lake to other bays especially since I am on a snowmobile. I was wondering if they eventually are safe enough to hold up a snowmobile in mid-late January, and if going through them faster helps possibly? I would like to fish around the Smith's bay area and the only way I can do that is going through channels. I know Lake Minnetonka can be sketchy with ice thickness and I don't want to end up through the ice, thoughts? Thanks.   Jim

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff
