      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 .

On the bright side, we won't have to waist our time watching the Vikings during the hunting season for another year. I think that today was the worst game I have ever seen. The whole offense was well, offensive.

Imagine the Lions fans. They are probably peeved that the lions had to go into OT against that offense. I love the Vikes but that game was one of the worst Ive seen in a while. 4 picks!! i am not sure if Daunte ever threw that many in a game before getting pulled.

What miffs me is this coach is an offensive coach how can the O line stink so bad. This should have been a win if the O line could have given time. Penalties Oh MY.

Why is that when the vikes try too run the ball its always in tight sets? Why don't they send a 4 reciever set in there and spread the defense out and get AP some space once in a while? And does anyone know why Sydney Rice didnt touch the field until the 4th quarter?

If the vikes continue too run nothing but tight set formations, defenses are going too continue too load up and bring nothing but heat. I think the coaching staff has too take some heat also. Get things spread out a bit and if defenses continue too blitz you should have multiple 1 on 1 options open immediately instead of defenses blitzing and having 1 option thats covered. Until the vikes show they can attack a bit, not even downfield, but in that midrange 10-15 yard range teams will do this all year and not only will we not be able too pass the ball, everything will be constantly bottled up against the run. And this wasnt even against an elite defense. I hope they open things up a bit or i have wasted $260 on the 4 packer game tickets i bought in 2 weeks.

Just a terrible game through and through...I can't believe the line play, and Tarvaris looked terrible, in his defense, he had no time at all, but he still made some bad decisions. I just hope we're not wasting a dominant defense with such a bad offense. Just imagine if we had even just an average offense right now, with our D...

I've never seen a team try to give away a game so badley until yesterday.

Woudnt having a few 3 or 4 reciever sets in a game, spreading the (Contact Us Please) a bit, make it easier for T-Jack and the line too identify the blitzes rather than running tight sets with 9 guys in the box. Wouldnt it be easier with 7 guys in the box in a spread rather than 9 guys. And wouldnt it be easier for AP too find some room too run? They did some of this against the falcons with success and none of it yesterday. T-Jack made some bad plays, but i dont think hes being set up very well too succeed. Childress made it waaaay too easy for the defense by running everything tight. You run nothing but tight sets and its way too easy for the defense too bring the heat and stuff everything. Every team we play is going too bring the house every time stuffing the run and giving T-Jack no time too do anything. And can you pick any worse times too get cute? Its 3rd and 1 and your stuffing it down the lions throat on the first drive and you get cute and run a rollout and it leads too an INT. They faked a reverse 3 times and i told my buddy "just watch they are setting this up too actually run the reverse and its going too go no where, its too predictable". And they did just that, and it got stuffed horribly.

Why can we see it and the coaches cannot? I dont mind losing but how we lose just makes me so mad, because it seems like a lack of effort on the coachs to makes changes. Hey Bud where ya at, we could sure use you. smile.gif

I hope that T Jack is going to be on the bench for a while!!!! I guess they forgot to explain the difference between home jerseys and road jerseys. Guess he figured if he threw to the dark jerseys, that it would be a good thing. O Line couldn't have stopped a school girl. They misssed the blitz when the guy was lined up in their face. They need to fix the line, and go out and get a decent QB. David Carr is riding the pines in Carolina. Can someone say TRADE??????

David Carr and decent QB?? That doesnt go together. Bring someone in whos had 3 years too show what hes got and done nothing rather than let T-Jack grow up? I'd rather watch T-Jack grow up with AP and Syndey Rice. I don't know what people are expecting from this kid with what he's being dealt with. He's young, he's gonna make bonehead mistakes. And when the coaches call the game like they do it just compounds matters and doesn't let him grow. Spread the offense out, get the defense spread out. Give AP some room. Give the kid a chance too figure out where guys are coming from. How many QB's can figure out where the blitz is coming from when there are 9 defenders on the line of scrimmage? Good veterans would have trouble with that.

T-Jack as you call him is a JACK-A. PERIOD. The guy is horrible, he is a NCAA Div II QB. Know what that means? No DIV I schools would even give him a chance. A couple more games like that and I don't think he's worth the Vikings giving him a chance anymore. I am looking forward to the Vikes winning enough games to give them a top 5 pick next year and they had better use it getting a decent QB

Oh and by the way, the NFL standard for coaches is what- 2 and out or is it 3 and out? Even if it is 3- get rid of this clown after this season. 3 times in the last few years we have had premier coordinators on the sidelines and have failed to promote them to head coach- Dungy, Billick- each have a Super Bowl ring and now Mike Tomlin. Get with it Vikes

James, I was talking to another HS football coach this afternoon at lunch. We couldn't believe the bonehead coaching. When they faked the end around, and then came back the very next play and actually ran it, I couldn't believe it. Jr. High kids wouldn't fall for that, he basically told the defense what his next play was going to be. I for one, think Childress is about as lousy a head coach as there is. If a no name like Mike McCarthy can get the Packers to look like a team, what the heck is Childress's problem? If he turns this thing around, I will gladly, ever so gladly eat crow, and I mean a REAL crow. Man I thought they looked lousy on Sunday. If anyone watched the Patriots and Chargers that night, they saw what a real offensive unit looked like. Maybe Chili should start taping the other teams signals. smile.gif

Actually, I believe T Jack was originally enrolled at Div I Arkansas - but transferred. He didn't play well, but he didn't have much help either. I don't think it's time to clear the roster just yet.

How can you expect for Sydney Rice to do anything when his QB is busy throwing the ball to the other team? Perhaps they can get one of the Twins infielders to play WR, so they can field all of the short hop throws TJack throws at them. Bottom line is......he sucks. Wether he is a rookie,veteran or whatever, he sucks. What good does spreading the offense out when eventually they are going to have to pass, and they just can't do it. Jackson is going to nothing more than cost them games.

I agree that Childress is about as worthless a coach as there is in the NFL. He didn't call the plays in Philly, Andy Reid did. History dictates that we let the good coaches go and keep the not so goods. Look at Trent Dilfer......not the greatest QB in the world, but did what needed to be done to ensure that his team won. We have nothing close to the in Minnesota right now.

Musky and I are gonna get a beer next time I am up in the cities. We see it for what it is- when week 16 hits and the Vikes are 5-11, you'll be saying it then too. Face it people, Tarvaris sucks.

Wow, classic bandwagon, guys plays bad and we better get rid of him. Granted, Jackson hasn't lit it up, but he has TWO whole starts, and a coach that just doesn't seems to properly utilize the talents he has. Show me a rookie or first year starter that didn't struggle from time to time. It is going to be a long season of ups and downs, maybe by the LAST TWO games we will have a better understanding of who we have for a QB. smirk.gif

I'm not saying they won't be 5-11. But how can you say in one instance that Childress is the worst coach there is but in the next blame Jackson? Chilly is problem #1 for not putting his players in a position too succeed. How can any QB succeed in this offense. You go draft whomever you want next year, it isnt going too matter unless Chilly pulls his head out. T-Jack, the stud out of Hawaii, Brian Brohm, bring them in, it will not matter with this play calling.

And how can spreading the offense NOT make things better? It opens things up. Spreads the defense out so AP has some room. It spreads the defense out and makes it easier for the line and Jackson too identify who is blitzing. How can any team be expected too run the ball out of nothing but tight sets where the defense gets too cram everyone in the box and bring the house on every play? Oh, and if its a pass, well there is 7 people rushing up field and on top of Jackson immediately. How can anyone find an open guy with 3 guys in his face? How can 5 lineman be expected too constantly take care of 7 guys coming at them? Mix things up a bit, give the defense some different looks they cant sit 9 guys on the line of scrimmage and bring the heat on every play. Give your QB a friggin chance too make a play. Give your recievers a chance too run in space and not a crowded mess. Maybe than can actually take a quick slant over the middle over the blitzing linebacker and make a 5 yard pass into a 50 yard play instead of having too run 3 yard comeback routes all game long.

I concur, james backs up his posts with solid points and feedback, not just so and so sucks. I am very disappointed in the coaching staff. I was hoping that when Childress handed off the play calling duties we were going to see a spark of something...and we have nothing. As a side note, did anyone watch the philly-washington game? I could have sworn I had seen that terrible offense before, and I had, it's just the guys were wearing purple, not green. Philly put up their points based on talent, not the scheme, and I think on offense we are far more lacking in talent then they are...I am officially on the ditch Childress bandwagon

      Steve, Thanks for helping me get a deal on my Otter. I was able to pick it up at Marine General on Monday. Can't believe all of the ice stakes that came with it. Bought one of the Eskimo drill adapters to install them.

      Just out on 1st Lake after work 5” solid clear ice out to 17’ of water 
    • Blackhawkxp
      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.

      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update
    • Rancid Crabtree
      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there.
