      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 .

The Gophers have demonstrated toughness early in the season. Despite a shaky start, they stuck with it and came out on top. It will be interesting to see how they fare against Michigan tomorrow night.

Go Gophers!

I was at the game and until they scored the first goal the looked horrible. I hope this isnt a sign of thing to come. I am glad the RPI fans had to watch their team choke that was great.

They are simply amazing! Down by 2 or was it 3... with 15 mins. left, I was thinking jeez wouldn't be great if they would come back. And they did! By far the best Minnesota team! Plus its college, they play for the game, not the $. Lot more entertaining in my opinion.

A lot more crisp tonight. I like the early signs of a nice transition game and I thought Frazee played well despite having quite a few young 'uns in front of him. 44 for 47 ain't bad.

So you weren't watching the game?

They didn't choke in anyway shape or form they were robbed by the refferee "plural"

Are they really going with this 2 and 2 refferee system this year?

It's going to be a long year for the Gophs I'm afraid.

I'm thinking 3rd in the conference may be a pipe dream.

This is something they are experimenting with, each team will have a couple of games this year with the 2 ref system and it will be reevaluated at the end of the year.

Watching that game against RPI was rough as a die-hard Gopher fan. If ever there was evidence that a game could be “fixed” or “controlled” by the refs, this was it. The calls against RPI in the third were all questionable, but that last check from behind… Ridiculous! It was as if the refs got a little advice between periods about how it sure would be nice to have the Gophers in the Championship game Saturday night…

I played that back on the DVR ten times. The Gopher player (Schack I think) knew he was going to get hit so he turned and then buckled like a rag doll. If I were calling any penalty on that play it would have been on Schack for Unsportsmanlike Conduct Diving. The league really needs to crack down on that diving crap, especially the checking from behind. If you know your going into the boards with another player and your stupid enough to turn your back, you deserve to get hit. I think it’s embarrassing that the Gophers had to resort to Diving in order to beat RPI. Freakin’ embarrassing!

I had hockey on Saturday night after that game. A few of the guys there stated that RPI got screwed badly but they didn’t care as long as the Gophers won. I disagree with that. I lost respect for Schack and I will honestly lose respect for the game if this continues. Players should have to skate through checks, hooks, and holds as best they can. It seems like now the slightest little obstructions turns good skaters into beginners out there. It’s not just college but all levels of hockey. The sad thing is that after the game the other players were probably talking about how good of a dive that was and how it was a good play for the team. I think it’s sick. That’s my opinion anyhow.

Good analysis Hockey Guy....if I'm not mistaken one of the two referee's "not Campion" made almost all of the 11 penalties called including the 3rd period one's which were crucial...Campion is a great referee I can't imagine what he was thinking watching his partner do that.

Yeah, and refreshing to see a fan who can be critical of an official who made a bad call, even if benefited your own team. I agree with what you said, it was kind of twisted. At least it was non-conference, and not in the middle of determining WCHA play-off position.

Two related comments. I think with how severe the ruling is on checking from behind, it was inherent that people would take advantage of it. They can't back off on their stance because it will send the wrong message. And they can't really determine effectively if people are abusing it. TV replays are one thing, but the refs have to make a quick judgement call.

Also, I don't like the 2&2 referee system. Seems like refs are tripping over themselves out there. The Wooger even pointed out the 2 linesman were watching the same line. And if there's one thing I can't stand, it's refs that are inconsistent within a game. If you call it tight, you better keep it tight. If you call it loose, keep it loose. I can't understand how having two referee's will keep it consistent.

Was fun to see some college hockey again.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.

      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!

      Hi, I am selling my 2012 Polaris Ranger 800 XP camo. Very low miles, 1200. Full hard cab, flip out glass windshield, windshield wiper, almost like new still. Great for ice fishing, hunting and work around the house.  I also have this ad on C.L.  10,000 b/0 text me for pics, thanks.  I am located in west metro 763-two34-0837

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?   
    • slammer
      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.
    • Meterman
      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?
