      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 .

NDSU 31.........GOPHERS 17... Lets hear your prediction!!!

Recommended Posts

10,000 Casts

I have to say it! NDSU is going to come into the Metrodome and come away with the W! Any takers?????

Sad for the Gophs but they are going to get out played and out-coached. I don't think that they can stop Rohl. NDSU has the better Quaterback in Walker and Joe Mays is going to come ready to play. Better kicker too in Dragosivich! grin.gif

I am expecting some serious backlash from you Gopher fans so let me have it... But NDSU will still come home with the victory!!!

21-18 NDSU. Gophers miss three FG's, Weber throws 3INTs returned for TD's and run's in 3 TD's, then they go for 2 on each one and come up short.

Little green guys from ND LOL!

Thats pretty funny. Craig Bohl is the nicest guy in the world but I don't think you want to make him mad.

Gophs have one of teh worst defenses in college football giving up just uder 600 yards a game.

NDSU is going to have to play pretty bad to lose.

I agree John. Coach Bohl does have his poop in a group, that is for sure.

Say, how is the fall musky, walleye bite on Leech coming along?

Anybody get a betting line on this game? I looked online this morning and couldn't find one.

I hate to say it, but NDSU 27, Gophers 24.

These are some lean years for the Gophs and it make take a while for things to get better. I'm giving Brewster the benefit of the doubt that he will get things going in the future. Bill Callahan brought the West Coast Offense to Nebraska and they struggled the first year as well. But 5-6 is completely different from 1-10!

I think both teams are playing for something. I think that the gophs know they played poor last year and all of this year and need the win for themselves and their coach that has his foot in his mouth, and obviously NDSU has all the MN players that were spurned, last year's loss, their #1 D1-AA ranking, etc.

They don't put lines on games involving different levels (e.g. Div. I-AA versus Div. 1).

As excited as people are to see ND come in and win, and as bad as the Gophers have been, I think the Gophers win and win big.

Minnesota 42

North Dakota 17

I'm hearing NDSU is 3 at this point in town here.

I was thinking 6 myself.

Of course anything could happen but to me it looks like a blowout for the Bison if you factor in they outplayed us last and should have won the game they seem to be a better overall team this year and we "MN" are clearly a much worse team this year.

Even though the game is going to be played at the MetroDome I fully expect the North Dakota Fans will out number and definitely be louder than the Gophers Fans kind of like the Pack vs Vikings game a few weeks ago at the Dome.

Good Luck....Go Gophs! grin.gif

Chise,

I was looking to place a wager on the game as well. I figured that you could bet on just about anything but I haven't been able to find anything on the net.

For all you Gopher fans I just don't see it. Last year, I thought the bison were going to get routed and they certainly outplayed the gophs.

Win or lose, this needs to be a wakeup call for Minnesota. With a school of that size and sweet new stadium on the way, they need to contend in the Big 10 with-in 5 years.

None the less it will be pretty bad if you pay a team in a lesser division a ton of money to come down and play you and they come in and take it to ya.

Still sticking to NDSU 31, Gophs 17

Tommy,

The walleye fishing is absolutly phenomenal right now. I have heard jig and a fathead, lindys and shad raps are all good right now and they are hitting all over.

For Muskies its been pretty good, not great but pretty good. I have been sticking to the rocks on the main lake but most the guides seem to be fishing Walker Bay.

So this weekend is the big event. As was the case last year prior plans will keep me from the game frown.gif. So what is going to be the out come.

I made the coment last year that the bison had a good shot as the gophers were down last year and the bison were playing well. Then the bison rolled in and won every aspect of the game except for the most important one being the score board. Well this year finds the Bison (No.1 ranking in the FCS Coaches Poll) undefeated and the Gophers have what 1 win? Well this year I think they have a better shot than last year. I think the Herd will pull it out this year. I am going to say 24-17 Bison.

I don't think the Gophers will over look them quite as much as they did last year. But I tell you what one hit from Joe Mays and they won't think of them as little green guys. New coach for the gophers but I doubt that will help. The Coach Bohl is awesome what a great coach. The Gophers should have went after him. Maybe they will realize this after this weekend. Did you catch that BOLD text.

You all are crazy. They will not come in and beat a Big Ten school. I highly doubt the Bison's defense will be able to stop the Gophers offense.

Gophers 38 - Bison 20

I just want this game over with because I can't stand the tension any longer! I don't know if the Bison can pull it off with all the hype now, and I'm starting to wonder if over confidence will come into play with them. I hope they can do it but I think it could go either way.

I hope it doesn't get decided by a few, or many, blown calls either way so we then have to listen to the cop-outs that we get with the Vikes, etc. every week down here. Oh yeah, those pesky clock operators too. smirk.gif

I'll be out pheasant hunting in ND this weekend and listening to it on the radio between walks, but I have the DVR set so I can watch when I get back. BTW, it's on the Big 11 Network this weekend.

I agree with KatoMike, and I don't know why for sure. I have been frusterated with the gophers this year but I have a feeling that the gophers are going to have a big game. Maybe us people from Mankato think alike grin.gif. I say Gophers 38, NDSU 17.

      Is it always impossible to get a hold of Jeff?? It took me like 8 calls to get a hold of him, brought my boat down after I got a hold of him. I told him I was hoping to use it this weekend for one last trip...I've called him multiple times for an update and he never answers... Seems odd for a business.

      You know it’s a good day when you’re thumb looks like that from lipping the fish! What sizes are you getting right now, Rick?

      Recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) is anticipated to open on several Schedule I Lakes in the Grand Rapids fisheries work area beginning in late October, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule II Lakes, will open Nov. 3. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Anticipated opening dates are as follows: Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec.3, for Deer (near Deer River), and Turtle (3.5 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Side and South Sturgeon (1.75 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Big Balsam and Nashwauk (1.75 inch mesh). Schedule II Lakes Lakes open to whitefish and cisco sport netting Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10: Bass (north basin). Ball Club. Bowstring*. Little Bowstring. Cut Foot Sioux*. Deer (near Effie). Grave. Jessie. Maple. Pokegama. Round (near Squaw Lake –1.75 inch mesh). Rush Island. Sand (near Max)*. Swan.  (1.75 inch mesh) Twin Lakes (near Marble). Winnibigoshish* and Little Winnibigoshish* (1.75 inch mesh). *Bowstring, Cut Foot Sioux, Sand, Winnibigoshish and Little Winnibigoshish are designated infested waters because of the presence of faucet snails or zebra mussels. Nets and equipment used in infested waters may not be used in any other waterbody unless they have been dried for ten days or frozen for two days. Fishing regulations require that: Netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. A person may use only one gill net, not exceeding 100 feet in length and 3 feet in width. One end of net must have a pole, stake, or buoy projecting at least two feet above the surface of the water or ice. Nets must have an identification tag attached near the first float of the end that is projecting from the surface of the water or ice. Identification tags must be a minimum of 2 ½ inches by 5/8 inch permanently bearing the name and address of the owner. Identification tags for marking nets are provided by the owner. Nets may not be set after sunset or raised before sunrise. All gill nets must be set and lifted by the licensee only. Anyone assisting in the taking of whitefish or ciscoes must have proper licensing. Nets must be tended at least once every 24 hours and all gamefish and non-target species must be immediately released from the net. A net may not be set in any water deeper than six feet. A net may not be set within 50 feet of another net. Minimum gill net mesh size shall be no less than 1-3/4 or 3-1/2 inch stretch measure depending on the lake (see full list of lake and size regulations online). Nets used in designated infested waters must be dried for a minimum of 10 days or frozen for 2 days before using in a different water body. Nets should be dried for 10 days or frozen for 2 before moving from any lake to another. Nets used in spiny water flea and/or zebra mussel infested waters should be not used in any other waterbody Nets should be transported in sealed container. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be bought or sold. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be used as bait. Within the Leech Lake Reservation boundaries, the possession limit for whitefish taken by sport gill-netting is 25, and the possession limit for ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting is 50. Net placement should not inhibit use of the lake by other boaters. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Grand Rapids area office at 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or call 218-328-8836.

      It seemed cheap to me for all the functionality.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.  
    • fishingdad
            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.
