      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 .

Whos Everyones #2

Recommended Posts

Tomlinson first, obviously. Stephen Jackson #2?? Thats what all the websites are saying. Wouldn't Shaun Alexander or Larry Johnson be a better bet? Whats everyones take on Marion Barber as a top 5- I think he will shine this season. Or do you wait and hope to steal him in the 3rd round?

i hope you mean other former gopher laurence maroney, cuz barber shouldnt be a 1st or 2nd round back, not with the platoon between him and jones.

I'd go Jackson #2 because he is going to catch a lot of balls out of the backfield as well as carrying the ball. He is also young and has a good O-line in front of him along with a good QB running the offense. Having Holt and Bruce to catch balls will help prevent D's from stacking the line to stop the running game. I also heard that Linehan wants to get Jackson between 80-90 catches out of the backfield this season in addition to a normal carrying load.

Alexander and Johnson are both still great fantasy backs but Jackson is younger than both. Alexander is getting up in age, I think he will be fine this year but you never know his production could start tailing off now. LJ is younger but has lost some key offensive line guys and may have a inexperienced QB starting allowing Defenses to stack the line on him.

I think losing Green will increase his carries big time.

Barber is tearing it up this preseason, and I think he is truly better than Jones.

One of my fantasy Mags has Barber rated 20th for RB's and Jones rated 31st. Barber usually gets the touches around the endzone. grin.gif

20th ranked RB would probably mean a 4th round pick.

In a 12 man league- that could mean a 2nd rounder. Usually entire first rd is RBs except for the guy that takes Manning, and 2nd is more RBs. I guess it depends on how scoring is set up in your league though. When I was on CBS QBs weren't given points like RBs, so RBs basically ran the draft for the first round and a half

I had the #2 pick in one of my drafts and there was no question that I took Jackson. St Louis has a high scoring offense this year and he should put up big numbers. I also scored Barber in the 7th round. Do you guys think I should handcuff Leonard in FA? What do you guys think about making a trade for Julius Jones so I have the complete running game of Dallas? Or should I trade Barber to pick up another WR. I already have Jackson, Cedric Benson, Portis and Betts for RB's

You don't want both Jones and Barber, Barber will get the points while Jones will get it between the 20's. Portis is healthy again I believe so you may want to unload Betts.

Has anyone ever done an auction draft?? I did one on Saturday for the 1st time with a $200 cap. My team actually isnt bad foe being a 1st timer.

QB's- Young & Rothisberger

Rb's -Maroney, Barber, Jones-Drew, A.Green and T.Bell

WR's- C.Johnson (cinci), Wayne, Driver and Bruce.

TE- Gates and Cooley

K- Gould and DEF is SD, I still had $7.00 at the end.

1st pick was Tomlinson and he was sold for $96 which I thought was crazy.

      Went out this morning and walked around and drilled a few holes.   Found between 3-6" of ice.   The areas that did not open up had 6" of good ice.    the open water areas had almost 3".   All areas are open to walking.   Some could be 4 wheeler ready by the weekend but only of you know where the fist ice is! With that being said I would still avoid these areas: Winter access to west to far shoreline and anything north of that line. summer access Anything within 200 yards of the meth hole. any last open water.     Be careful,   Don

      Well, people live all over this state and I live 4 hours away. I'm also 54 years old and have been ice fishing for a half century. Was asking a simple question with a simple answer needed. Thanks. Please someone report if they can.

      looks like 3 so far.  anybody else up for this?

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
