      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 .

Best and Worst moves by the Wild

Recommended Posts

I had an interesting conversation with a couple co-workers today that I though would be a good topic. In your opinion, what are the three best and three worst moves the Wild have made over the last seven years? Keep in mind that you have to look at what we gave up to get certain players (i.e. Demitra for O’Sullivan). This is what I came up with:

Best Moves

Acquiring Rolston (#1 with a bullet)

Drafting Bouchard

Letting Manny go and bringing up Harding (I think Harding could be even better than Backstrom)

Worst Moves

Letting Brunette go (#1 with a bullet)

Letting Brunette go (again just because it was so stupid)

Letting Park go (I loved his energy)

Best

1. Drafting Gaborik

2. Always having great goaltending

3. Trading for Cliff Ronning the season the Wild made their run. (Got to love veteran leadership)

Worst

1. Signing Kim Johnsson to such a big deal. (2nd highest paid player on the team) For an offensive defenseman he only put up 3 goals last year.

2. Trading Willie Mitchell. I thought he was a great stay at home defenseman. Great on the penalty kill.

3. Not finding a center to play with Demitra and Gaborik.

Cliff Ronning in a Wild Jersey. Wow, that brings back memories!

I'm pretty sure that Rolston and Demitra are both free agents after this year. It will be interesting to revisit this question next year at this time.

Free Agents after this season

Pavol Demitra

Brian Rolston

Wes Walz

Dominic Moore

Branko Radivojevic

Keith Carney

Nick Schultz

Petteri Nummelin

Sean Hill

Restricited Free Agents

Pierre-Marc Bouchard

Stephane Veilluex

Matt Foy

Kurtis Foster

Brent Burns

Sean Belle

Without resigning any of our restricted or unrestricted free agents the Wild have roughly 23.5 million in cap space. I would like to see the Wild make a run this year and maybe sign Peter Forsberg in December.

Oh yeah, Gaborik and Backstrom are unrestricted after next season.

Just my female/occassional hockey follower perspective:

Best Moves

1. St. Paul location

2. Logo and Marketing - State of Hockey, etc.

Worst Moves (like most females I have more complaints than good things to say - ha!ha!)

1. Team colors - everybody looks like they are celebrating Christmas

2. Losing Mike Schmidt (National Anthem singer) - he rocked!

3. Letting Richard Park go - not the best player ever, but I liked watching him and he had a good work ethic.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
