      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 .

....or are the games on tbs just not very exciting to watch due to the whole broadcast format? Just doesn't seem to relay that playoff level of competition to me.

One thing I miss- 10-15 years ago, going out in the afternoon bow hunting, coming home and temps a crisp 40-50 degrees out and watching playoffs and even WS baseball while eating dinner. Now its still 90 degrees out and just dont "feel the same"

Haven't seen a pitch if playoff baseball yet, and it sucks. I don't get TBS with my basic cable subscription. Hopefully they don't carry the championship and world series.

I just think it's poor in general that professional sports are on cable or satellite dish. I grew up watching MNF with Dad, the Twins in the evening with the family, and the NBA and NHL on weekends. Heck, even wrestling was once on the local stations.

Say what you will about sports, but I would rather have my kids watching that than some of the other garbage on TV.

I would have missed the entire Bulls dynasty and most of the T-wolves early games w/o cable, watching the Twins win it all in 87 and 91. I still believe that sports, teams, and certain athletes are a part of your life and without them you lose a little bit of something.

I've actually liked it on TBS, You will get your wish as it looks the AL is back on fox. Joe Buck is great, but Tim Macarver is the reason I like it on TBS. He's not there!

I agree, I can't stand McCarver. He seems to try to make every phrase that comes out of his mouth sound like it is the quote for the ages. I really did like seeing Ted Robinson again. I thought he and Kaat were the best TV team the Twins had. Robinson just seems like he always had a great question to ask Kaat about the game. Kind of like a fan with a mike.

Joe Buck. He is a joke!!! Athlete want to be. If he is on I have no problem changing the channel. I'll never forget his comments about Moss when Randy displayed his pulling down his pants move against the Green Bay Slackers. I was on my back laughing my butt off. Mr Bucks comments about how Moss was being a total jerk. The best part of that whole deal was Moss was doing it as a joke to the GB packers and Buck said he was just a menice to the league. Look who's laughing at you now Joe Buck your nothing but a sports want to be. To small to have ever played anything in his life other then with himself. Just another Joe Morgan or Brett Mustburger. Joe Buck should be prodcasting little league. Sorry to say I still wouldn't watch the (Contact Us Please).

I agree with you Colonel. Joe Buck is an arrogant donkey. He is riding on the coat tails of his old man. Kinda like the Caray's. Although I don't think Chip is as bad as Joe Buck.

Okay I don't understand the Joe Morgan comment. I would agree he's a tad arrogant, but he's a knowledgeable broadcaster & the guy is a hall of fame baseball player. Kind of hard to say he's a wanna be.

I didn't think much of the Joe Buck comments when Moss did that move against GB. I thought it wasn't a wise choice by Randy, but it was still funny & pretty harmless. Buck made it out like he'd pulled a gun & shot a couple of fans.

McCarver's very arrogant & has to always find a way to get back to how great he was playing with the Cardinals...

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Water temps are hovering in the low 60’s despite the very fall like weather we are experiencing. 

      The scenic Canadian shore lines are coming to life with various critters. Otter, bear and more making preparations for the coming winter.

      Walleye fishing in Canada is excellent with a jig and minnow or shiner. The most productive environment has been gaps at 15-18’ with plenty of current present. Good numbers of perch are being caught off deep edges or reefs at 30’ or more. Crappies are a little more difficult this week, the best chances are on a light set up.

      Around Minnesota, walleyes can still be had with a crankbait but favored methods are switching over to a jig tipped with a shiner on main lake points between 20 and 24’. 

      Muskies are moving deeper with anglers transitioning from casting to trolling. There is still time to boat a big fall fish!

      We hope to see you soon!

      Welcome to the forum. Give it a month and throw it on C/list, it should go then.

        Im not a waterfowl guy and dont do a lot of it. But isn't that why you retriever guys do blind retrieves? My GSP's dont always mark down birds either and I just send them with hand signals. I think its just something we have worked on over time. Do you know anyone that has access to a zinger winger launcher etc. That's about the only other way to replicate it with out doing the real thing.

      Thanks Dave this seemed to help with grouse, woodcocks,and ducks.  How does a guy get a dog to stay focused on the sky watching for birds? Finn did great at sitting or laying down for ducks but he does not watch for them so he does not mark the birds then. Any ideas to get him to do this?

      So a buddy and I are looking to see where we can get on some nice Pike action around the Kato area. We have no access to a boat so we'll be doing it from shore. Any insight on a good pike or any game fish bite would be awesome! Fall tends to be our Achilles's heel.

      9/25/17     Hunted the hot, steamy MN duck opener on a public lake in central MN. Could see lightning to the west and north all morning until the sun came up. Must have been some serious lightning in those storms that were 100 miles away. Could still see the flashes, but of course could not hear any thunder. Saturday morning we saw the most bluewing teal I have seen on an opener since the 1980s. Must have seen a thousand teal and hundreds of mallards and wood ducks. Weren't in the best spot since we were the third boat on the lake, but still managed to shoot some teal and wood ducks. Busy watching ducks all morning. The teal I cleaned were migrators with quite a bit of fat--none on the wood ducks. Sunday morning was a different day--most of the teal were gone and the mallards and wood ducks were more wary. Managed two juvenile mallards. Think the shooting and the weather front moving in got a lot of the BWT on their way further south. All in all, a decent start to the MN waterfowl season, especially considering the temps were more like mid August. See what this weather and some cooler temps brings to the decoys this weekend. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Any thoughts as to which will hold up better, or be easier to fix?

      With 59 state forests that cover 4.2 million acres, Minnesota state forests are a great place to view fall color, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Forests with a mix of deciduous and coniferous trees offer a wonderful fall color experience,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “The dark green needles of conifers accent the yellow, orange and red leaves of deciduous trees.” Here are a few routes to consider: Late September Bear Island State Forest From Ely head south on State Highway 1 toward Isabella for about 20 miles. Take a right on New Tomahawk Road toward Babbitt for about 17 miles. Turn right on County Road 21 for 15 miles back to Ely. Kabetogama State Forest From Orr head north on State Highway 53 for 4 miles. Turn right on County Road 180 to head east for 16 miles. Turn right on Forest Road 203 to head east for about 4.5 miles. Turn right on Vermillion Falls road to head east for 8 miles. Turn right on County Road 24/23 and follow to Orr for 26 miles. White Earth State Forest starting at Roy Lake head east on State Highway 200 for 1.5 miles. Turn right on Strawberry Mountain Road to head south for 5 miles. At Norris Trail turn left to head east for 3 miles. Turn left on Height of Land Road to head north back to Highway 200. For a longer loop follow Strawberry Mountain road to State Highway 113. Turn right on State Highway 113 to head east. Turn left on Height of Land Road to head north back to Highway 200. Early to mid-October Croix and Nemadji state forests loop. From I35, take Hinckley exit #183 and head east on State Highway 48 for 19 miles. Turn left to head north on County Road 24 and follow as it curves east and north for 7 miles. Turn right on County Road 25 to head east for 9.5 miles. At Markville, head north on County Road 31 for about 12 miles. Turn left on Park Forest Road/Park Truck Trail to head west for 13 miles. Turn right on County Road 171 to head north for 2 miles. Turn left onto County Road 154/Kerrick Road to head west for 5 miles. At Kerrick, head south on State Highway 23 for 18 miles to I35 exit #195. Richard J. Dorer Memorial Hardwood State Forest From downtown Red Wing head south on Highway 61 for 10.5 miles. At Frontenac take a right onto Country 2 to head east for 9 miles. Take a right onto County Road 3 to head east for 4 miles. Take a right onto State Highway 58 to head north for 1.5 miles. Take a left onto Hay Creek Trail to head north for about 4.5 miles. Hey Creek Trail turns into Twin Bluff Road at Pioneer Trail. Continue on Twin Bluff Road for 1.5 miles and turn left on East Ave to return to downtown Red Wing. Visit www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_forests/fall-colors.html for additional scenic routes and state forest information. Entrance into a state forest is free. State forest campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis for $14 a night. Visit the Minnesota state parks and trails Fall Color Finder at www.mndnr.gov/fall_colors to find areas in Minnesota with peak fall color.
