      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 .

I went from a die hard 2 a 'dont even watch the game anymore' in about 2 days, once moss left I stopped caring. Not 4 that reason but it just all fell off a cliff from there. Thats what gophers hockey is for, but after getting swept by CC, and playing horribly I dont know what 2 turn 2 now. Croquet? Ping-Pong? Hop-Scotch? crazy.gif

"The vikings have a young team and they going to be great in a few years"

I was about ready to go to dallas and tell Troy Aikman what i thought of that saying. He only said it 15 times during the games.

Vikings are horrible on the offencive side of the ball. If they dont have Peterson, they would be in trouble. Jackson cant throw a ball anywhere on the field.

Does anyone not agree with this???

This is one of the worst offenses I've ever seen.

Adrian Peterson being the exception, they suk. Sure, they are young but T-jack can't even get the ball close to the receivers hands unless he's 2 yards away.

They need a QB badly.

The Vikings will never be good again until someone who knows anything about football owns the team and that may not do it either. It's been the same pile for too long. There's not even a hope of 8-8.

Chilly is saving Peterson for what? He may not be around long enough to have a healthy Peterson.

thats correct. its getting out of hand. For one, peterson should NOT be returning kicks, he should be getting 25-30 carries a game.

You are right BnS I was all for giving T-Jack more time and see what he could do once he got some playing time, but I have lost all faith in him if it wasn't for AP who knows where this team would be we'd be in the running for the first pick for sure.

it is just getting out of hand. we have to figure out a way that we can get the team back to where it belongs. and i think to start getting there, peterson has to carry the load.

Sounds like Jackson has fracture in the 2nd finger on his throwing hand. But of course Childress said he will still start Sunday if he's able to play.

Mysterious broken finger is a convenient excuse to bench his spare tail.

Yeah- why is he a kickoff returner? Isn't that what Meweldes for? Speaking of Mewelde- what is he doing to earn his million dollars (actually, I don't know how much he makes)? Was he even in there yesterday?

Mewelde I think he has been inactive for a couple weeks, plus he was in a bunch of trade rumors with the bucs but the signed someone but he should be returning kick I really would hate to see AP get hurt on a kick off, and while Moore is returning kicks he should return punts to what was Wade THINKING!!!! lets the first punt bounce go out at the one so he decides to fair catch the next punt at the 6???? and the third punt if I'm correct bounced at the 20 something and rolled inside the ten the rule is put your heels on the 10 yard line if its over your head let it go if its in front of you catch it is it that hard Bobby Wade, for how bad T-Jack played those 3 punts left us in terrible field position anyone else agree?

You can't get Peterson 25-30 carries a game when your QB is so bad that you can't ever convert a third down. They had over 2 times as many plays from scrimmage than we had. 3 plays, punt. 3 plays, punt. etc etc etc. frown.gif

The Vikes have some good cap space to throw at a QB in the off season. Jackson had 9 completions against the Bears and something like 5 or 6 against Dallas. Those are high school stats. Romo had like 28 in the first half. All that said, we beat the Bears and almost beat Dallas. We are a QB and a WR away from being good IMO.

Dont forget we also are a head coach away from being a good team, besides qb and wr childress doesnt have a clue on how to call plays. 3rd downs and adrian peterson is on the bench even though he has only produced 46% of the vikings entire offensive yards. why are we trying to pass the ball when on our own goal line? Another thing why review the touchdown by barber even if he hadnt got in he would next play only inche to go if he wasnt across just burned a timeout. Maybe the other previous kick returners will learn from adrian that the end zone is straight ahead not 2 rights 3 lefts then ahead 4 blocks and then it just beyond the clearing. what I'm trying to say is adrian runs forward all out the others seem to dance around for 3 seconds before they find somewhere that may look like a seam. I agree adrian shouldnt be back there returning kicks but it looks like he is the only person on the offense that knows where the end zone is located. T-joke flat out is hopeless

T-Jack certainly looks lost out there but what we don't know is whether or not his receivers are actually getting open or not. It might be a combination of both but I would bet to say that if the Vikes had any production out of their QB at all that this season would be looking much differently. Seems that T-Jack has no timing, vision, or playmaking ability---heck, he's not even a good runner. Vikes will need to seriously consider signing a free agent with some proven experience in the off-season.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish

      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
    • PSU
      Lot's of walleyes to be had, but most for me seem to be smaller (8-10 inches)
