      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 .

Picking Wrong Guys:

Recommended Posts

zamboni

Anyone else have a habit of this- having diff players to choose from a seemingly picking the wrong one? Today I chose to start Vince Young over Ben Roethlisberger- bad move. Another one- I started Santana Moss over Jericho Cotchery or Joey Galloway- both had better games than Santana Moss. You know what will happen next week? Yeah, I'll start Big Ben and Vince young will be on fire and Ben will stink. And so my fantasy season goes.......

Don't feel too bad in one league my 9 starters scored 52 and my 6 bench guys scored 58. And Wayne as one of my starters score 21 alone. No matter what you do it is going to happen a time or two during the year! grin.gifconfused.gifgrin.gif

I played the guy in my league that has Wayne- if not for him, I would have won this week. Oh, and the fact- my #2 overall pick Stephen Jackson was horrible today

Yep I know how it feels I kept Colston from last year and traded up to get Reggie Bush, both of them got me a big fat 0 this week.

My opponent this week also had Wayne. Only as it stands right now I am beating him 120 to 86.

I chose to start the Vikings Def. today over Denver's, solid choice on my part. Its nice to get 29 points from your 14th round pick.

I also have Plexico Burress which added another 33. Thankfully I had these two on my team to make up for LJ and Maurice Jones Drew both having poor games.

I still have Todd Heap playing tomorrow so we'll see if I can add to my 120 point total.

Sorry to brag but I had to tell someone since my wife just doesn't care.

I released Randy Moss. Somebody told me he was washed up and his career was finished.

argh,

and also the week with the most roster moves. i had a few bad plays this week, but im keeping my roster in check for now. at least it looks like my 8th rounder lamont jordan may be very active in the passing game again this year.

Yeah, just ride things out. It's a 17 week season. I love how my league's message board is full of cocky posts and we just got started. Wow, congrats, Adrian Peterson went off for you....he was scheduled to share carries and Taylor got hurt in the first quarter...Yep, way to go, you can count on the Vikings defense to register 6 sacks and 2 TDs a game....You must be a soothsayer, cuz Calvin Johnson is going to score a TD on a mediocre Lions team every week with Kitna throwing the ball...I mean seriously, there can be a lotta luck each week, but don't get too puffed up. Proven guys and guys that don't score much the first week will even things out over the season.

      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

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
