      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 .

Just signed with Jacksonville. Why don't we get this guy back in his home-state wearing purple and gold? He certainly would be no less of a QB than T-Jack and Holcomb at this point in their careers.

Makes me wonder.. how many other QB's are out there, similar to Bouman, that would be a step up from what's wearing the purple.

Ah, well, maybe I'm overstating Bouman's capabilities. But even so, do you see my point? I mean... T-Jack has the worst QB rating of all the starting QB's in the league, and worse than several backups too. There's got to be a QB somewhere that can pull out a few wins for the purple and gold.

It'd be counter-productive, I know. T-Jack needs experience and won't get it sitting the bench. That's the theory righ tnow, anyways. However, I think a couple years on the bench will actually help him develop. Then maybe next time his number is called to be the starter, he would be much more capable.

Frustrating year. Probably a frustrating couple (three, four, five....) of years. crazy.gif

I thought he was coaching football. I think his brother is AD there. Nepotism rules.

I'm wondering why Chris Weinke didn't get a sniff in Charlotte. I read he was hanging around there just in case.

Yeah Bouman was the QB coach at Buffalo. It sounded like a lot of the kids liked him.

At this point, I'd even take Ryan Leif. Childress is too stubborn to make any intelligent moves at this point. Both Culpepper and Johnson would've been better than Jackson this year.

The way the queens season is going they should have a good draft pick this year. There are 4 QB's that would be head and shoulders above TJack.

The AD in Buffalo doesn't even spell his name the same way (A instead of O). Todd has two older brothers, one of whom is head football coach in Pipestone and the other was head girls softball coach at SDSU until he got canned last year and I don't know where he is now. Ignorance is bliss, but you have to know enough to be quiet to enjoy it!!!

I've known the Bouman boys since we were kids and played on traveling baseball teams with them when we were young. Todd always had great skills, but he was a cocky cocky kid. He has been a serviceable backup QB in the NFL and could probably do as well as our other QB's, but he's not the answer to our problems.

Baseball teams? Didn't know they played baseball. I used to watch them play fastpitch every weekend when I was younger. Shane was the big wheel, Troy was a speed demon, and Todd was just a solid all-around player.

I think Shane is coaching softball at UNI these days.

Cocky? Technical fouls and ejections for hanging on the rim in high school b-ball games comes to mind... grin.gif

Baseball in the summers before they were old enough to play fastpitch softball...Probably like when Troy and I would have been in 6th or maybe 7th-8th grade(we are the same age-Todd two years younger, Shane two older)? I don't remember exactly when, it was like a million years ago now.

Speaking of quarterbacks, the queens are down to one healthy qb. I seen rumors, of George coming back, Pennington. Will the Vikes pick up someone? Or hope that Bollinger doesnt get injured, then it will be back to T-jack. They need to do something.

Well, at least we didn't resort to signing Vinny Testaverde before another poor team was desperate enough to sign him. He looked decent on the first drive, but it fell apart after that. I have a feeling Quinn will be available at seasons end, Anderson looks good, and I am sure Brady will get sick of standing on the sidelines and will ask to be opted out of his contract

I thought I heard on the radio the other day, that if worse came to worse, Darren Sharper could be put in at QB?. unless I misunderstood the conversation. Did he play QB in college or anything like that?

Then who would we replace him with on defense? Well we could play it like 9man high school grin.gif I hope it doesnt end up like that! There just isnt much out there to be had, the Vikings will just need to dig in their pockets next season and pick up a good veteran.

Sharper could do the "Iron Man" thing. It'd be pretty sweet to see him lay the wood on someone trying to sack him though.

I would rather see Joe Namath using a walker lined up behind center than any quarterback on the current roster.

I'm afraid to say it, but how much you want to bet in the next NFL draft, the Vikes, well knowing how pathethic our QB situation is, will do something stupid in the first round, like pick another lineman, or a stone handed receiver, or someone from an unknown school who "has future potential"

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!

      Any where from 12' to 30' humps. Bass and a few walleyes setting up on top and sides of these humps. Cliff

      Duck hunting is expected to be good when Minnesota’s regular waterfowl season opens a half-hour before sunrise on Saturday, Sept. 23. “The number of breeding ducks in Minnesota and North America has been good in recent years, so we’re optimistic that will result in a good duck season,” said Steve Cordts, waterfowl specialist with the Department of Natural Resources. “Wetland habitat conditions and wild rice lakes are in pretty good shape.  Canada goose populations remain high as well, so there’s lots of opportunity to hunt geese this fall.” Duck seasons and limits
      The duck season structure is similar to recent years. The waterfowl seasons are based on a federal framework that applies to all states in the Mississippi Flyway. Waterfowl hunting regulations are available wherever DNR licenses are sold and online at mndnr.gov/regulations/hunting. Duck season will be open for 60 days in each of the three waterfowl zones: In the north zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Tuesday, Nov. 21. In the central zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 1, closes for five days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 7, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 26. In the south zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Oct. 1, closes for 12 days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 14, and runs through Sunday, Dec. 3. The daily duck bag limit remains six per day. The mallard bag limit remains four per day, including no more than two hen mallards. The daily bag limits are three for wood duck and scaup; and two for redheads, canvasbacks and black ducks and one for pintails. The DNR will post a weekly waterfowl migration report each week during the duck season. The reports are typically posted on Thursday afternoon at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl. Goose and sandhill crane seasons
      Minnesota’s goose season will reopen in conjunction with the duck season statewide on Sept. 23, with a bag limit of three dark geese per day the entire season. “Dark” geese include Canada geese, white-fronted geese and brant. The daily bag limit for light geese is 20. “Light geese” include snow, blue and Ross’s geese.  Goose season will be closed in the central and south duck zones when duck season is closed. The season for sandhill cranes remains open through Sunday, Oct. 22 in the northwest goose and sandhill crane zone only. The daily bag limit will be one sandhill crane per day. A $3 sandhill crane permit is required in addition to a small game hunting license. More information on duck, goose, sandhill crane and other migratory bird hunting is available in the 2017 Minnesota Waterfowl Hunting Regulations booklet from license vendors and online at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl.
