      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 .

Interesting little tidbit from Fox 9 on the size of HS players.

Spent some time with players from Edina and GSL, a couple state semifinalists in their respective classes.

I think some folks push their kids too far. I know I guy that has a son that's a killer pitcher. But he goes from one league to the next and plays year around. His arm will be thrown out before he hit's collage. Let them be kids for the craps sake.

Have you looked at the development of kids in general? Young girls are sometimes hard to know if they are 12 or 21. I think people should think about all of the growth hormones that is added to all of the foods that animals eat. Then the animals are consumed by the American public. Kids in general are bigger and more developed at a younger age than ever before. The additives and other stuff put into food has got to play a part in it as well!

I am 13 years old and weigh 225, and stand 6' but that means nothing into your cardiovascular level, I can run better than many kids half my weight. Football and basketball are my sports, i can do my best at both with my physical capacity, so my point is, if it helps do it, but i should lose a couple pounds, and gain some more muscle.

you have to look back 10-20 years, and really see the side that they were one. The only big people that were on the field were the students that were on teh farms. There are people now days that spend 2-3 hrs in the gym, 6-7 days a week. Your always going to have the people that never do much, but more then that, people want to be in shape. There going to lift becuase everyone else is, and if your a person that is not lifting, then your not going to look like the others, and feel left out.

Times have changed, everwhere you looking, people all the time are working out and getting FASTER and STRONGER.

Not only are kids heavier but they are also taller. A person can lift weights all they want and it won't make them taller. It's not just high school football players either. As someone pointed out girls are also more developed and I agree the hormones in food have had an effect on kids.

I can say this, being on the field every week reffing high school kids all over SW MN and NW Iowa, kids are generally MUCH bigger than they were 5-10 years ago. Its a question I think of how hard do you push that and when is enough enough? I have to take my step son to school at 6:40 twice (now going to three times) a week to lift weights before school. I don't know that that's too good for him as he's always dog tired from getting up that early, but on the other side I can clearly see the advantage that a strong off season weight program produces in kids.

I just think we have to avoid going too far on this. I don't know where the cutoff is, but I sure wouldn't want to get hit by some of these high school players today...

As a coach, I admit kids are bigger now. But, mankind has been getting bigger and bigger all the time. The last few years it seems to be more noticable.

I coach girls volleyball and see many girls that are 6 feet tall or better. Never or rarely used to see that.

Also, kids develop and play only one sport (for the most part) now. Their skills are better as they play one sport year-round.

And, the coaches are better grin.gifgrin.gif

It all has to do with trying to get to the next level. A college is going to offer the scholarship to the bigger guy if the talent is the same. Take a look around a GNC store and there are thousands of products to make the most out of someones workout, then look into most high school weight rooms or any college one, and you will find lifting records for football players. Everyone wants their name on that list long after they're done playing so, hard work+gnc=bigger stronger guys. Supplements in the past few years are in more magazine ads with more pro athletes being the focus of the ad. The height thing though, who knows, evolution??

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
