      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 .

Who woulda thunk a team known for pounding the football wins a prep bowl with a qb that passes for 4 tds?

Lots of good football in the Hutchinson area and a great year for many teams out that way...

I didn't realize Dose was retiring or that he was already finished teaching.

Check out this article:

Lee Ostrom

McLeod County Chronicle

It's not like Dave Dose to miss much of anything while preparing one of his Glencoe-Silver Lake football teams for a Prep Bowl assignment inside the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. In nine years as GSL's head coach, Dose's teams played in five 14th games and won four - by a combined score of 140-40, mind you.

But despite what some Panther fans may tell you, Dose is human. Ocassionally, by golly, a thing or two does slip by.

Like relaying to his players a venue policy that frowns on dumping Gatorade containers of icy contents on a coach. It seems certain icy contents can be brutal on Metrodome carpet.

"Each year I cover that, but this year I forgot," Dose confessed.

And sure enough, as the final seconds ticked off GSL's 56-20 highlight show over DeLaSalle in Prep Bowl XXVI, a pair of Ice Bath Bandits - clumsily hauling a large orange container - emerged from out of a sea of Black Shirts. In a flash, they ran up on an unsuspecting Dose and proceeded to empty a Big Pour on Big Daddy.

It is interesting to note that the senior captains who performed the deed were the two who played on Dose's defensive platoon this year, Mike Cano and Steve Slater.

Dose absolutely loves football and football players, but if he has to choose, his favorite side of the line of scrimmage is defense.

"They knew they could get away with it," Dose said. "They know I like defensive players to play like pirates."

** **

Dose, who retired from teaching this past September, announced after Prep Bowl XXVI that he has prepared his last GSL football team as a head coach, too.

Indeed, Dose has things he wishes to try, places he wants to go, new challenges he hopes to tackle. Whatever it is, he's earned it. Indeed, all the best to Dose and his family.

Now, should a day come, though, when he gets a little restless for a "Black November," starts dwelling on "None or One" defenses, or directing an offensive end to "Crab Delay" on fourth-and-11 at the other team's 31; should such a day occur, followed by another of the same, and then more and more just like it, I have an idea.

The coach could dabble at creating Maddenlike Panther Version player cards for each of GSL's four state champions. That way, Panther fans could wage battles on their own Xboxes (which would require initial purchases by some of us) to see which champion was the greatest of all: 2000, 2003, 2006, or 2007.

Imagine the fun!

For starters, though, imagine the difficulty of seeding the teams. Based on record, you could easily give the 2003 team (12-2) the fourth seed and the 2006'ers (13-1) the third seed. But which 14-0 team, 2000 or 2007, would get the top seed? (Dose speculated that a seeding game might end in a 21-21 tie, forcing an overtime period, or possibly overtime periods.)

After settling on the seeding, what would happen? Dose - who loves all his players; "just loves them like they were (his) sons" - probably would suggest that four tournaments might produce four different champions. And you know what? That may be so.

Really, that is not a reach. While the 2000 champs and 2007 champs would deserve the role of favorites, Dose noted that all four teams had excellent quarterback play (Dan Resch, Nick Johnson, Matt Muenchow and Matt Muenchow again), and all four squads played championship defense.

Just because the 2003 team might start as a fourth seed does not mean it would finish worse than first. That team's first loss was a 28-18 opener at Hutchinson to a Tiger team featuring Tony Mortensen and Nate Swift; its second loss a 28-14 late-September clash with top-ranked Becker, which wound up going undefeated until losing a 10-6 rematch to GSL in the state semifinals.

The 2003 defense featured current Gophers end Willie VanDeSteeg along the line, Luke Maresh in the middle of the linebackers and Nick Johnson at safety. (Johnson also guided the offense, and he won a regular-season game against Waconia with a punt return for the GW-TD.)

After a 2-2 start, that team finished 10-0 by winning six playoff games by scores of 45-16, 48-13, 31-7, 39-14, 10-6 and 21-0.

What I'm saying is, you would not want to sell any of Dose's state champions short. Each one was a great high school football team.

** **

Dose said he got a strong inkling for how good his 2007 GSL team would be at last summer's 7-on-7 passing league at Crown College. In the championship game, the Panthers lost by one touchdown to mighty Eden Prairie.

"We more than held our own," he recalled.

GSL went on to post a 14-0 record and repeat as Class AAA state champions, while Eden Prairie went on to post a 14-0 record and repeat as Class AAAAA champs. In their Prep Bowl victories, the Panthers amassed 506 yards of total offense in posting a 56-20 win over DeLaSalle; the Eagles amassed 520 in a 50-21 triumph over Cretin-Durham Hall.

** **

Looking at next year's GSL football team, Dose said an "incredible senior class" is graduating, and while a "good nucleus" of this year's juniors and sophomores are returning, some patience will be necessary as the 2008 team develops.

Five regulars return on offense, namely center Josh Noga, guard Derek Nowak, tackle Tyler LaMott, fullback Josh Kraby and halfback Mitch Nowak.

Eight regulars return on defense, namely end Whitey Sanken, inside linebackers Tyler Lang, Ryan Style and Tom Halligan, outside linebacker Mitch Keenan, and defensive backs Cole Ranzau, Aaron Lueders and Kyle O'Donnell.

In addition, pure numbers of football players in each upcoming class are good.

Between now and next August's first practice, Dose said players need to show their "hunger to get better" by excelling in the classroom, participating in other sports, and carrying out their strength and speed training for football with dedication.

** **

For his nine years as GSL's head coach, Dose compiled a 97-19 record (.836 winning percentage). His teams won 22 of their last 23 section games, including the last 18 in a row; went 7-0 in state quarterfinal-round games; and appeared in five Prep Bowls, winning four, including the last two in a row. Wow!

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.

      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day.
