      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 .

Depends on the leauge usually but RB is always a good place to start. With the 5th pick you should be able to get someone decent.

In my league we could a reception as a point so a good running back that can catch out of the back field is a big point getter so thats where I would start.

start off looking to select Frank Gore or Joseph Addia in the first round. Then play the board. If thier are any top 10 maybe 12 RB still on the board draft them with your second pick. Otherwise don't be afraid to grab a top 5 WR. If the RB went early look for another WR in the 3rd round as no one else will be looking RB and virtually the same RB's will be there in the 4th and maybe 5th round.

Agree with all, take the top available RB at #5 (although some will be tempted by P. Manning). Then take the next best RB on the way back down the order and hope that a QB and a WR or two has been taken so that you get a good #2. Nobody is real sure on the top WR's as any of 4-5 guys are all in the mix and you may see one of them in the third round depending on who goes to the top four teams at the end of round two and start of round three.

Only way I'd change this up is in a heavy QB scoring league where Peyton Manning is a real option at #5. Every year a QB finishes number 2 or 3 in scoring that wasn't taken until the later rounds--wait on them and some real good ones in proven systems like Kitna or Bulger may be available later while you have been loading up on RB's and WR's (maybe a top TE if your league doesn't mix them with the WR's).

I have played in eight team leagues, ten team leagues and even a 14 team league and I always leave the 14 team league draft hating my team since the players are so spread out.

my stategy this year is to go all rb's and wr's in the first 5 to 6 rounds then im gonna look for qbs in the later rounds. based on Strength of sched., a qb by committee deal. i will probably take one of the top 3 def. in the 6th. then a te and more wrs and sleeper rb's. kicker in the last two rounds.

ok, I just did a draft where I picked second.

#1 Steven Jackson

#2 Chad johnson not any super quality Rbs left so grab a top WR

#3 T. Owens Same as above

#4 Marshawn Lynch -- as stated in an earlier post, once most players have thier 2 RB they will begin to look WR and QB, so Lynch and early 3rd round pick slipped to the bottom of the 4th round.

I was in 4 FF drafts today. Tomlinson went #1 every time. Jackson went #2 twice. Larry Johnson went #2 and Jackson #3 one time and Alexander went #2 LJ #3 and Jackson #4 the other time. The time that Alexander went everybody was amazed because he shouldn't have gone that high in the draft, the guy who took him is a complete seahawk freak and loves any of their players.

One of the drafts today I was drafting someone elses team and I had the #5 pick. I took Manning in rnd 1, Harrison in Rnd 2, could have taken wayne in rnd 3 but didn't because the actual owner wouldn't have so I took TJ Housh, Rnd 4 I took Colston and my RB's for him were McGahee and R. Brown I think. I know when I was done I thought the team wasn't all that bad and I would take it for mine if I could have.

That is too much stock in Indy for me! No RB's in the 1st three round is also risky and then ending up with Brown is also a crap-shoot. Maybe I'm wrong, but then again it's not your team grin.gif

I know he ended up with a weak rb core but it is only an 8 man league so there are still some decent RB's out there for pickup if Brown doesn't do real well. I am on the fence with him, he hasn't had a great preseason but with Cam Cameron there I think he could make Brown into a really good RB. Look what he did with Tomlinson as the O-Coordinator. But you hit it on the head...It's not my team so I was experimenting a little!! grin.gifgrin.gif

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff

      Lot's of walleyes to be had, but most for me seem to be smaller (8-10 inches)

      Is it always impossible to get a hold of Jeff?? It took me like 8 calls to get a hold of him, brought my boat down after I got a hold of him. I told him I was hoping to use it this weekend for one last trip...I've called him multiple times for an update and he never answers... Seems odd for a business.

      Recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) is anticipated to open on several Schedule I Lakes in the Grand Rapids fisheries work area beginning in late October, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule II Lakes, will open Nov. 3. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Anticipated opening dates are as follows: Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec.3, for Deer (near Deer River), and Turtle (3.5 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Side and South Sturgeon (1.75 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Big Balsam and Nashwauk (1.75 inch mesh). Schedule II Lakes Lakes open to whitefish and cisco sport netting Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10: Bass (north basin). Ball Club. Bowstring*. Little Bowstring. Cut Foot Sioux*. Deer (near Effie). Grave. Jessie. Maple. Pokegama. Round (near Squaw Lake –1.75 inch mesh). Rush Island. Sand (near Max)*. Swan.  (1.75 inch mesh) Twin Lakes (near Marble). Winnibigoshish* and Little Winnibigoshish* (1.75 inch mesh). *Bowstring, Cut Foot Sioux, Sand, Winnibigoshish and Little Winnibigoshish are designated infested waters because of the presence of faucet snails or zebra mussels. Nets and equipment used in infested waters may not be used in any other waterbody unless they have been dried for ten days or frozen for two days. Fishing regulations require that: Netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. A person may use only one gill net, not exceeding 100 feet in length and 3 feet in width. One end of net must have a pole, stake, or buoy projecting at least two feet above the surface of the water or ice. Nets must have an identification tag attached near the first float of the end that is projecting from the surface of the water or ice. Identification tags must be a minimum of 2 ½ inches by 5/8 inch permanently bearing the name and address of the owner. Identification tags for marking nets are provided by the owner. Nets may not be set after sunset or raised before sunrise. All gill nets must be set and lifted by the licensee only. Anyone assisting in the taking of whitefish or ciscoes must have proper licensing. Nets must be tended at least once every 24 hours and all gamefish and non-target species must be immediately released from the net. A net may not be set in any water deeper than six feet. A net may not be set within 50 feet of another net. Minimum gill net mesh size shall be no less than 1-3/4 or 3-1/2 inch stretch measure depending on the lake (see full list of lake and size regulations online). Nets used in designated infested waters must be dried for a minimum of 10 days or frozen for 2 days before using in a different water body. Nets should be dried for 10 days or frozen for 2 before moving from any lake to another. Nets used in spiny water flea and/or zebra mussel infested waters should be not used in any other waterbody Nets should be transported in sealed container. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be bought or sold. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be used as bait. Within the Leech Lake Reservation boundaries, the possession limit for whitefish taken by sport gill-netting is 25, and the possession limit for ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting is 50. Net placement should not inhibit use of the lake by other boaters. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Grand Rapids area office at 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or call 218-328-8836.
