      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 .

Vikings QB for 2008

Recommended Posts

i was watching sportscenter last night, and they were talking that Childress is going to fight to get Free Agent McNabb over to the viks for 2008. He was his QB when he was the Off Cord, but do you think he would become a viking.

They were also talking that if they cant get mcnabb, there going to fight to get anderson from the browns.

More than likely, Anderson will be resigned by the Browns on a 1 year contract, and after that, I think they will take a wait and see attitude towards him- if he keeps up the great play, they'll resign him to a big multi year deal, if not, then they will turn to Quinn. McNabb has one great game to every 5 bad games, and I think he would be a great veteran to teach a young QB- but Tarvaris isn't the answer, we need to draft a top recruit. Period

McNabb has also been rumored to be heading to Chicago since that's where he is from. I think the Vikes answer lies in Clevelands QB right now. It will be a hefty price to get him--more than likely a 1st and 3rd round pick. In my opinion it would be worth it. This is a quarterbacks league and either you have one or you don't. I don't think the Vikes should rely on the draft to go after their next QB. Even if they have the #1 overall pick it's still a crapshoot if the guy will make it. Hopefully, this will be priority #1 for the Vikes this off-season.

Before any QB will consider coming here, we need to get some recievers that can catch a ball!

When the eagles came too town a week ago Donovan Mcnabb was saying how much he loves playing in domes. His stats in domes is pretty darn good.

I think we need to get a Qb first, before we start worrying about Wideouts. We have a few that can play. There is talent there, We dont have a QB out there that cant even throw a ball in the right direction. Its horrible how we look, and we need to find a way to get it fixed.

I agree, Bass- Rice and Wade are both capable recievers, Willimason on the other hand- no.

bass n spear is right all are Quarterbacks are horrible. Last week againts the packers the big b man threw a pass that was not even within 10 feet of any recievers. Honestly I am a die hard Viks fan and always will be but I have to say we have the third worst offense in the league behind the Ravens and the Niners. Yes I really do think we would get beat by the Dolphins, Raiders, and pretty much every college football team out there right know. It was sure nice to see what Peterson was capable of but that just will not work every time. We tried him in GB and now hes hurt, so much for all day Adrian. The viks have had a solid D for a decade now but by the time we get this offense fixed we probably will not have them or Adrian Peterson anymore.

Is anyone think about the Vikes picking up Larry Fitzgerald by chance???????? I have a feeling that QB and WR are the only two real spots that they lack in. So I think that are going to be looking really hard and both McNabb and Fitzgerald. Just look at how many times the games were almost blackout because of ticket sales. I think bring in 2 probowl players like that would boost sales in a heart beat!!

WCCO likes to pimp that rumor, since Fitz's dad is here and helps out with some of the prep football shows and since he grew up here, etc. It's not like Arizona is a big time winner. So if he wants to win he looks elsewhere or waits until Minny has a better passing offense.

But they might make him a financial offer he can't refuse.

I guess we'll find out if Zygmunt Wilf can spend his money. He did his first year on Hutchinson, but now he can see what Chilly needs and he seems to have Chilly's back on all football matters.

Very good point about the family aspact. But I also think they will really pursue him, well talent level, but he is still really young for that caliber of a player!! I think him and Rice would be a good duel threat at the wideout spot!! I just hope we get a good QB either through a trade of FA, possible the draft. I would rather see them get one through a trade or FA rather than the draft. But that is just my opinion!!

guess we will have to wait and see. MN needs a few wideouts, but like i have said, there wideouts now are good, we just dont have a qb, and we need to get one fast.

A failed broadcaster and sportswriter pimps the Larry Jr. rumor. It's about as likely as Sr. returning to KFAN.

The Vikes had a chance to have the Philly backup from last year but he's been better off putting Tampa in playoff contention. They missed that boat; there's no one out there worth taking a chance on.

Looked like you could compare Eli Manning with the Patriots. Both are going to be accused of running up the score. He may turn out to be a great quarterback but like Elway he'll never have my respect for the way he entered the league.

      a) license and lion permit/tag 
      b)guide 
      c) dogs with tracking collars 
      d) horses 
      e) some sort of thing that goes "BOOM" 
      and a ton of forethought for asking such a dumb question

      8/21/17     Got out on Mille Lacs on Saturday morning. Started out on rocks in 10-12 feet of water, then as the sum came up and the wind layed down moved to gravel in 28-30 feet and then the deep transition from a rock/gravel reef to the soft lake bottom in 32 feet of water. Caught smallies and walleyes on the rocks, and walleyes on the gravel and the deep transition line. Power bobbing with leeches about one foot above bottom on the rocks and two to four feet above bottom in the deeper spots. The five smallies went from 16 to 18.5 inches, and the walleyes went from 16 to 25.5 inches. They weren't jumping in the boat--we had to try different spots, move around slowly on spots with the MinnKota, and then anchor when we did catch or see fish on the Humminbird. Had to work for them, but wound up averaging three fish per hour with the faster action early and then slowing when the sun got high and the wind layed down--typical August fishing. Eyes and smallies are fat and look healthy--both fought very actively. Surface water temp. started at 68.7 degrees at sunrise and was to 72.4 when we headed in. Still a little cooler than average, but that is how this summer has been. Might be my last time on Mille Lacs--busy with football now and waterfowl hunting starts in a month. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      these should be available at Circuit City, BestBuy, or pretty much any other electronics store. Go check them out, a play around with them, just to see which one you find easier to use. 
    • Jennifer Dewitt
      Best is the one that's suited to the purpose used for. 
      My usual preference is a middleweight Standard because it's versatile and can serve many purposes with only quickly made alterations - add saddlebags, rack etc. 
      No need for more than two cylinders. 

      My view of what's best? 
      2 wheels, a frame and a 2 cylinder 4 stroke motor.

      Are you out to add color or protect the wood or both? A natural oil sealer is something to consider -- it lets the beauty of the natural cedar show though and still protects the wood. You can also get the same type of "penetrating oil sealer" in colors. Hard finishes (varnish) may look tacky and will require re-sanding and finishing over time --while the oil sealers can be touched up annually with a new light coat without sanding -- a much more natural look. Go to a "real" paint store and talk to them about your project -- skip the Home Depots and Lowe's "advice"

      you want a hard, fine-grained wood for carving lures. high quality wood so your hardware won't split the wood or so it won't soak up a lot of water then split. water WILL gain access to the wood no matter how good the paint. 
      and the acrylic is fine.

      I know this: you need to be on the water around 4:00am and the window of opportunity is small. When 6:00am rolls around, you should be done fishing for sturgeon.

      Is the canadian seal hunt still going on? if it is still on, does anyone know when it is supposed to commence this year? If any one have good idea please reply me with a quality comments.

      Was up this last weekend got out Saturday morning and Sunday morning.  The fish were biting very aggressively which made for a good time.  All fish from 14"-19".  No slot fish which was a surprise.  On a side note...  I've never had too much trouble with people honing in on where I am fishing.  But Sunday morning I started fishing this spot around 8am (which is late for me).  Nobody was around me and within an hour there had to of been six new boats around me.   I don't mind too much if your fishing an area by me but when you start trolling and drifting my same exact line I am???  Like do you want to hop in my boat and fish with me too?  Some people I tell ya..  Anyways get out there, the fish are biting.   Just remember there is 40,000 acres of water to fish out there.
