      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 .

Taylor is doing a great job without Peterson. Keep Peterson out another week? I am sure glad we have Taylor.

Can they make the playoffs?

If they do, is Chile's job safe? Is it safe now? Have to admit, the team is doing better than I thought with no QB or receivers.

It was a fun game to watch, thats for sure. The defense won the game for them, they will not get that lucky every week.

Playoffs? No way, but atleast they are in contention, kinda. If they beat the lions, then, I will get excited about them, just enough so they can loose the next couple to make us non believers again.

I will watch the rest of their games, win or loose. Peterson should be back, to make the games fun to watch.

Go Vikings!

If by miracle they got to playoffs it would be an embarassing 1 and out. Manning gift wrapped that game to us. D was good-offense and T-Jack a c+. Remember, they had their best RB out, too. I still don't think Chili is the answer here, IMO.

Granted I'm a Packer fan, but I will give my .02 worth. I think the Vikings have a pretty favorable schedule from here on out. Here is what they have:

v. Detroit - a team that has lost 3 games in a row. I can't see them coming into Metrodome and winning

@ SF - Definately a winnable game, but on the other hand it was a winnable game last year and they managed to lose out West last year also

v. Chicago- MN showed they can run on the Bears and that was in Chicago. No reason why they can't beat them again in the Dome

v. Washington- another avg. NFC team, playing at home I think gives them the edge here.

@ Denver - to me the only "obvious" loss on the schedule. Denver most likely will be playing for the AFC West title and possibly a playoff berth.

So I don't think 9-7 is out of the realm of possiblity here. The only bad thing right now is they are 3-5 in conference and will probably end up losing out on tie breakers. They cannot afford a loss to an NFC opponent from here on out. With the way the Giants and Detroit are playing right now I think the wild card spots could be up for grabs. You never know what can happen.

Did anyone catch the comments on TV about how the Vikes were tipping the play (run or pass) by how far back Chester was lining up? A guy called into KFAN this morning and said he called all but 1 play correctly after that.

Could Chilly not pick up on this? My 1st thought is that the Vikes could be setting up Detroit because they would see this on game film and then the Vikes could hit them big with Play Action but I could be giving him too much credit.

Adrian should rest at least another week...why rush him? NO way even with the schedule do they make the playoffs and Childress will be back but in my opinion they should have let him go at the end of last year and signed Tomlin!!

I'm a huge Vikes fan and watch them (however painfull) win or loose. I will say this about the game, the sun will shine on even a dog's rear end from time to time. I doubt the make the playoffs. I would hope they would rest AP another game. Smart thing to do.

I too watch the Vikes, win or lose, however painful it might be. The hard part is listening to people start talking playoffs. They are playing better, but they have a long way to go to be considered a playoff team. I think the should give AP one more week off and keep evaluating the talent they have. Also give T-Jack more and more opportunities to either prove is can do it, or that we need someone else. But no matter what happens, GO VIKES. grin.gif

Denver a "sure loss"-- come on. They choked agst the bears and Grossman. They gave up last year. IF the Vikes make it to the last game in contention, they will beat the hapless Broncos-- and likely get beat in the first round,, but who knows-- I remember a playoff game in GB a couple years ago...

Playoffs??? Playoffs??? Win one game and all the sudden things go from "You guys suck" to Playoffs???? Even a blind squirrel finds a nut from time to time.

Run defense looked good. Pass defense still has many weaknesses. Manning handed the game over to the Vikes. T-jack is bad. Chile needs to go. Peterson should play only if he's healthy. Really healthy not just saying he's healthy so he can get a rookie record.

The cheerleaders are pretty darn easy on the eyes, however!!

I don't think playoff talk is that CRAZY. Honestly the NFC and the NFL in general are really diluted with mediocre talent. But the NFC is really bad, thats PARITY at its best. How can the Vikes stomp 3 different kinds of dog crap out of San diego one week, and the next week SD beats theh reigning NFL Champions. Now if people want to start talking deep playoff run. Then they are crazy.

In Summary, yes the Vikes suck, but so does everyone else. It just takes a few good/lucky plays, or a favorable call from the REFS and boom playoffs.

Totally agree TNFL. Look at the teams in contention for the WC. Lions??, (loss 3 in a row) , Giants,, enough said. The Vikes are in the hunt as long as they don't turn the ball over and their pass def plays avg. MCcauley is getting better, and I think we get Winfield back this week.

Vikes have a very nice schedule, as long as they come to play. THe Bears game and Lions this Sunday are the must games.

Vikings coach's job is safe regardless if they make the playoffs or not..He will be back next season...

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties

      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
