      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 .

Its hard being a sports fan in MN. But the Vikings sure did look good. For what I seen in the last few weeks, we should win out our schedule. As of this week, the Vikings are in control of the second wild card. Its hard to believe they turned things around like this.

As for the band wagon jumpers, remember this is MN, dont get your hopes up to high smirk.gif. It sure is easier watching the games this way! Jackson is starting to look like a quarterback! And just maybe Childress isnt as big of an (Contact Us Please) as everyone thought, but I doubt that grin.gif.

Go Vikes!!

They have an excellent "D" but T Jack STILL hasn't impressed me, that pick he threw was a horrible decision, there wasn't a Vike within 7 yards

He's done his job very well the last 3 weeks, end of story. His QB rating against Oakland and NYG was over 101 and that only went up yesterday. What would you like him too do? He made countless big 3rd down plays and kept the chains moving with his arm and legs on 5 straight TD drives. How anyone could have watched that game yesterday and can say Jackson didnt look is beyond me. Oh wait, i do know how, its called bias. You dont like the guy and it doesnt matter what he does. I could understand when you were trashing on the guy after 4 or 5 weeks but not after the last 3 games. He has done more than just not make mistakes. He is engineering scoring drives. Of course a running game helps. But they had the running game there when they were 2-5. The difference now at 6-6 is plays being made in the passing game. The QB throwing darts and the recievers hanging onto the ball.

I agree, he made some rocket passes right were they needed to be, if any where else they would have been picked off. Maybe he's a instant reaction type athlete who does better when he goes on instinct. Cause all his good passes were on quick hitters. I'ld like to see more of the same out of T-jack and pass judgement at the end off the season as for now, he is progressing like any qb, looks good then not so good, hopefully good is here for awhile.

Hes doing exactly what hes being asked too. Hes not being asked too throw 35 passes and 300 yards with 4 TD's. He doesnt have too. Hes being asked too compliment the running game and keep the chains moving and hes done it well the last couple games.

I think he is improving every game. Give the guy a break, he hasn't even played a full season yet.

I will be the first to admit that he is improving. I have slammed him before, but he is improving.

Could it be that Childress's simplified offense is starting to work and the QB is learning?

That is another person that gets no respect, Childress. Like I said before, he is a good coach. Even if he doesn't make the playoffs, to finish .500 or so with such a inexperianced QB says something.

Don't get your hopes up.. It's the Vikings!! Do I enjoy watching them play well, yes.. will I get my hopes up after watching them win a few games, no..

They'll more than likely find a way to screw it up as usual. If not, then Go Vikes!!

Williamson is a horrible reciever, but he is fast, I wonder if they can train him in as a d-back, then he can only drop interceptions smirk.gif.

The Vikes are on a roll, they have an easy schedule in front of them, they have a good shot at the playoffs. If Jackson can improve a little more, the Vikes could beat any team out there. This team isnt missing much, to be a championship team. I know this is the Vikings, and they will find away to loose. If you look back at this whole season, as bad as it was, we have been in every game until the end except for 1. Thats only because the packers cheat grin.gif. I dont have my hopes up to high, just saying, it could happen!

This year 9-7 should get us in the playoffs. Although if we cant win the last 4 games, we arent going to do anything in the playoffs anyhow. Although it would be nice to make it, and knock the packers out of the playoffs again grin.gif.

I will admit it is nice to see the Vikings playing well. Can it last? After the Lions game on the Vikings Radio Network everyone says next weeks game should be a win for the Vikes! If they can go and prove everyone right by beating a team we SHOULD beat then we may have a good shot. (How many times have we gone in to a very winnable game and walked out with a loss!?!) Think of the Cardinals in Week 16 a few years back - with the playoffs on the line. If the Vikings can take one game at a time and Jackson makes the plays and decisions he made against the Lions, then we could be Playoff bound! - Yet if they lose, the Vikings bandwagoners may fall back off. OH WELL - FOR NOW, GO VIKES!

Here is what the NFL network thinks of the 6-6 Vikings playoff chances!

You got SF on the road. Its a bad team that should be beat. Chicago and Washington at home. Both teams in the same caliber of the vikings. But at home you have too like their chances. Denver on the road is interesting. I believe Denver still has the worst rushing defense in the NFL. At least they did 3 weeks ago. If Jackson plays like he has the last couple games i think they'll be OK to go. The line is playing phenomenal and i would think that would continue.

Dude, Vikings played the Giants and Lions..... Giants are not a good team, especially with Plaxico Burress being injured and very slow, and Brandon Jacobs as well as Derrick Ward out as well.. NOt to mention, Giant's leading defensive rusher is out as well. With all these players being either injured or not playing, do you really consider Vikings winning over the Giants as impressive? If P Burress and Brandon Jacobs were healthy, Vikings would not have won. Any team can beat the decimated Giants right now, probably even the Dolphins...

As for detroit, always starts out strong in the beginning of the season and ends weak towards the end of the season... Detroit has not been doing much against any team these past couple of weeks... Detroit is not even good... Thus, Vikings beating Detroit is not impressive... Oh yes, Vikings beating Oakland is not impressive as well..

Im definitely not jumping on the Vikings bandwagon.

Besides the green bay blow out, the viks were in position to win every game including dallas. don't you go tell me that we won the game just because the giants were missing a few players. if you have forgotten, we have a very good defense. you were probably to busy watching reruns of desperate housewives to even bother paying attention to the football game anyways. please spare us with you ever-so-lame insite.

The bandwagon won't miss ya.

OK...so the Lions and NYG are bad. What is not impressive about blowing out bad teams. The Vikes ran 'em both right off the field. Could they have done something different with those teams?

I'm going to have to agree with the last few guys. A good team should be able to blow out bad teams. Look at the Patriots, they've been doing it - although teams are getting closer to beating them. Provided the Vikings competition hasn't been that great and the last 4 games are all against below .500 teams. YET winning builds confidence and a load of confidence with this team may be enough. A team winning 7 in a row, not saying it will happen, but if it does then they'll be rolling with confidence.

THE VIKINGS COULD BE THE COLORADO ROCKIES of the NFL this year. Sure the Rockies didn't win it all but they were fun to watch and made it to the World Series! (Not saying the Vikes are Super Bowl contenders, but its proof what winning and confidence can do!)

      With 59 state forests that cover 4.2 million acres, Minnesota state forests are a great place to view fall color, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Forests with a mix of deciduous and coniferous trees offer a wonderful fall color experience,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “The dark green needles of conifers accent the yellow, orange and red leaves of deciduous trees.” Here are a few routes to consider: Late September Bear Island State Forest From Ely head south on State Highway 1 toward Isabella for about 20 miles. Take a right on New Tomahawk Road toward Babbitt for about 17 miles. Turn right on County Road 21 for 15 miles back to Ely. Kabetogama State Forest From Orr head north on State Highway 53 for 4 miles. Turn right on County Road 180 to head east for 16 miles. Turn right on Forest Road 203 to head east for about 4.5 miles. Turn right on Vermillion Falls road to head east for 8 miles. Turn right on County Road 24/23 and follow to Orr for 26 miles. White Earth State Forest starting at Roy Lake head east on State Highway 200 for 1.5 miles. Turn right on Strawberry Mountain Road to head south for 5 miles. At Norris Trail turn left to head east for 3 miles. Turn left on Height of Land Road to head north back to Highway 200. For a longer loop follow Strawberry Mountain road to State Highway 113. Turn right on State Highway 113 to head east. Turn left on Height of Land Road to head north back to Highway 200. Early to mid-October Croix and Nemadji state forests loop. From I35, take Hinckley exit #183 and head east on State Highway 48 for 19 miles. Turn left to head north on County Road 24 and follow as it curves east and north for 7 miles. Turn right on County Road 25 to head east for 9.5 miles. At Markville, head north on County Road 31 for about 12 miles. Turn left on Park Forest Road/Park Truck Trail to head west for 13 miles. Turn right on County Road 171 to head north for 2 miles. Turn left onto County Road 154/Kerrick Road to head west for 5 miles. At Kerrick, head south on State Highway 23 for 18 miles to I35 exit #195. Richard J. Dorer Memorial Hardwood State Forest From downtown Red Wing head south on Highway 61 for 10.5 miles. At Frontenac take a right onto Country 2 to head east for 9 miles. Take a right onto County Road 3 to head east for 4 miles. Take a right onto State Highway 58 to head north for 1.5 miles. Take a left onto Hay Creek Trail to head north for about 4.5 miles. Hey Creek Trail turns into Twin Bluff Road at Pioneer Trail. Continue on Twin Bluff Road for 1.5 miles and turn left on East Ave to return to downtown Red Wing. Visit www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_forests/fall-colors.html for additional scenic routes and state forest information. Entrance into a state forest is free. State forest campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis for $14 a night.

      Hunter success was just slightly below average the five-year average on three popular waterfowl lakes for the 2017 waterfowl hunting opener in the Grand Rapids area. Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wildlife staff conducted waterfowl bag checks on opening day September 23rd on Big White Oak Lake, Mud Lake (both near Deer River) and Big Rice Lake near Remer. Hunter success in terms of ducks bagged per hunter was 2. The average take the previous five years was 2.2 ducks per hunter. Blue-winged teal, wood ducks and mallard ducks were the most common birds in the bag with blue-winged teal the most commonly bagged bird at all three lakes. Based on vehicle counts at these lakes, hunter numbers were down about 25% from the five-year average. “Hunters had to contend with an early morning thunderstorm which may have kept hunter numbers lower than in previous years. Some hunters delayed going out or decided to try another day because of the rain and lightning from the storm,” said Mark Spoden, acting area wildlife manager. This year’s duck hunting season is 60 days in length. The duck bag limit is six ducks daily and may not include more than any combination of the following: four mallards (two may be hen mallard), three scaup, three wood ducks, one pintail, two redheads, two black ducks, and two canvasbacks. If not listed, up to six ducks of a species may be taken. The daily bag limit for coot and moorhen is 15. The daily bag limit for merganser is five, no more than two of which may be a hooded merganser. More information about waterfowl hunting in Minnesota including weekly waterfowl migration reports can be found at online at www.mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl.

      Thanks Rick, we will be launching out of Long Lake, so Becker may be our best bet.  I assume Schneider is a long haul from Long Lake?  Do you think we should just fish outside weed edges or do you think the fish will still be on the docks?  I'm a bit concerned with the lower temps this week.

      My partner and I will be fishing a 10 boat bass tournament this Sunday (Oct 1st) on the Horseshoe chain.  We have never fished this water, so we are at a loss right now.  Do any of you have any recommendations on what areas to fish, types of lures, etc..  No sure where the fish would be around this time of year, but any advice would be much appreciated!!!  Thanks so much

      New fall hours take effect Oct. 1 Hours for the bison range road at Minneopa State Park will change for the month of October due to decreasing daylight hours. Starting Oct. 1, the range road will be open Thursday through Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The road will be closed on Wednesdays for regular maintenance.  Hiking trails around the bison range provide more bison viewing opportunities. Trails are open daily year round during regular park hours. A vehicle permit ($7 daily or $35 year-round) is required to enter the park. Bison range road hours will be adjusted again to follow daylight hours for the winter. Beginning Nov. 1, winter hours will be 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Minneopa State Park’s bison herd arrived in September 2015 and has been a popular attraction for the park since then. The bison are part of the Minnesota Bison Conservation Herd, managed through a formal agreement between the DNR and Minnesota Zoo. The partners are working together to preserve American plains bison. The plan is to grow the herd to 500 animals at several locations, including Blue Mounds State Park, Minneopa State Park and the Minnesota Zoo. Genetic testing of the herd from 2011 to 2014 found them largely free of any genetic material that would have come from cross-breeding with cattle. Less than 1 percent of all American plains bison tested so far have been found free of cattle genes. Bison viewing tips: Bison may be difficult to spot at times. Visitors should drive slowly and keep a watchful eye as they go through the range. Remain inside vehicle while driving through the bison range. Bison should be given clearance of at least 75 feet from people and vehicles at all times. Dogs can make bison nervous, so pets must be kept on a leash while in the park and hiking around the bison range. Bison get nervous around loud noises or lots of activity, so keeping voices down and movements to a minimum may help keep the bison within easy viewing. Hiking is not allowed inside the range, but there are hiking trails all the way around the outside of the range that can provide some fantastic views of the bison. For information on the Minneopa State Park bison herd, see:  mndnr.gov/minneopa-bison. Resources on bison can be found here:  mndnr.gov/bison.

      Youth, ages 10-15, can participate in a special deer season that runs from Thursday, Oct. 19, to Sunday, Oct. 22, in 28 permit areas of southeastern and northwestern Minnesota, including in the Twin Cities metro permit area 601, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Youth deer season is about putting the youth’s hunting experience first,” said Mike Kurre, DNR mentoring program coordinator. “Many students get a couple days off school for teacher workshops during the youth season so the long break is a great time to plan a hunt that can teach valuable skills and help grow a youth’s interest in the outdoors.” Deer permit areas open to the hunt are: 101, 105, 111, 114, 201, 203, 208, 209, 256, 257, 260, 263, 264, 267, 268, 338, 339, 341, 342, 343, 344 (including Whitewater Game Refuge), 345, 346, 347, 348, 349, 601 and 603. Blaze orange or blaze pink requirements apply to all hunters, trappers and adult mentors in areas open for the youth deer season. Public land is open, and private land is open if the hunters have landowner permission. Youth ages 10 through 15 must obtain a deer license. Youth ages 12 to 15 need to have completed firearms safety or, if not, can obtain an apprentice hunter validation. During the youth season, a parent, guardian or mentor age 18 or older must accompany the youth and only need a license if the youth is taking advantage of the apprentice validation option. Party hunting on a youth license is not allowed – so youth must take and tag their own deer. The bag limit for the youth season is one deer only. Youth may use their regular license or a bonus permit if they take an antlerless deer, regardless of the management designation. Bucks must be tagged with the youth’s regular license. Participation does not affect eligibility for the regular deer season; however, the harvested deer counts against the youth’s annual statewide bag limit and the bag limit for the deer permit area. If hunting in permit areas 346, 348, 349 and 603, the early antlerless only season is in effect from Oct. 19 to Oct. 22, so adults and youth can hunt at the same time in these areas; however, if a youth harvests a deer and wishes to continue hunting during the early antlerless only season they must purchase an early antlerless permit. Youth hunters in permit area 603 must have their deer tested for chronic wasting disease and cannot move the carcass out of the permit area until a negative test result is received. Properly cut-up deer and boned-out meat can be taken out of the area provided no brain matter or spinal column material is attached. Information on proper steps to follow after harvesting a deer in permit area 603 is available on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/cwd/603. CWD testing during the youth season is not required in the other permit areas where mandatory testing will occur on Nov. 4 and 5 during the first two days of the firearms deer season. More information about the youth season can be found on page 34 of the 2017 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook and online at mndnr.gov/regulations/hunting.
