      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 .

Vikes-Bears Thread

Recommended Posts

Down to Earth

Looks like you guys will be facing Kyle Orton come next Monday. Not that it will matter anyways. I see the Vikes pounding away at the Bears for a convincing win. Hopefully my Packers can go into St. Louis and take care of business there as well.

Wow,

Witty retort, Strato, I thought that was the saying people were using for the Pack. You had better rack your brain and come up with something original.

Some just don't get it. The Pack sucks and the Bears blow. There is a difference. grin.gif

Honestly, there is a very good reason the Bears are 9 point dogs but they still have a couple of healthy playmakers on defense, a receiver who can blow past a flat footed corner and Hester who can change a game faster than anyone.

The Vikes should win but it would not shock me to see the Bears put up a struggle if they still have some fight left in them after a very difficult year. The Vikes were left for dead a few weeks ago and awoke suddenly. There is no reason the Bears might not do the same just to make a statement that they have some pride.

Was not a retort merely an observation. Here's another: Bears are execrable.

Windy,

I should clarify as my bold prediction has nothing to do with the first Packer-Bears game. It has more to do with earlier in the season the Vikings went into Soldiers field put up 300+ yards rushing and beat the Bears 34-31 in a game the pretty much controlled the whole time. Only some Brian Griese late game heroics made it that close. Right now the Vikings have won 4 straight games and are playing outstanding football right now. The running game is clicking the defense is solid and the QB play is coming around nicely. Meanwhile the Bears D is no longer feared, they lost their starting RB(granted it was only Benson), and they are down to their #3 QB. I know Orton has a good win loss record, but you and I both know that record had more to do with the Bears D than Kyle Orton. Unless Orton pulls a Chad Hutchinson out from under his helmet, its going to be a long night for the Bears.

As for that Packers game, it is unfortunate that that was one of the Packers worse games from a turnover standpoint. We moved the ball for the most part at will and if it weren't for the 5 turnovers we would have won that game. I predict come our visit to Soldiers field we'll have a result closer to our last visit to Soldiers Field rather than the one earlier this season. If your confident enough, I'll make an avatar bet with you. Pack win you front an avatar of my choice for 1 week. Bears win I'll front your avatar pick.

Deal?

Strato,

Since you "re"plied to me, it would be closer to a "re"tort than an observation. In "re"ply to your "observation" that the Bears "suck", I would ask you, when was the last time the Queens "sucked" in the Super Bowl? The answer for the Bears would be, last year. Second question would be, when was the last year that the Queens won the Super Bowl. The answer for the Bears would be Super Bowl XX.

Think about it!!!

Playing in the superbowl (and being dismantled by the colts BTW) and being one of the worst teams in the NFL this year makes the bears SUCK even more.

Who is the most overrated player in the NFL????

I know I know!

Well thanks for the history lesson...history.

I will repay the favor with a lesson in current events.

Vikings 7-6 = mediocre and improving quickly

Bears 5-8 = sucking and sinking

It's time to live in the present, the past is history, and I don't believe in history.

And Sled,

When was the last time the Queens were "dismantled" in the Big Dance???

Now we are talking ancient history! LOL

At least we got there and at least we won the thing, Queens can not say that. The last time the Queens were at the Dance they were wearing bell bottoms.

I love this smack talk amongst our division. The Vikes should manhandle the bears, but the bears may not want to loose twice in the same season to a poor Vikings team, as Windy would put it. But if the Bears did loose to the Vikes 2 times in one season, then we would know that the bears do really blow! grin.gif Just think, the bears lossed to the Vikings, when the Vikings couldnt score against 11 old ladies on a team. smirk.gif And the recievers couldnt catch a cold! Now we are playing all around football.

With that being said, this is the Vikings, and I have seen them mess up and loose to worse teams then this bears team, when they were suppose to win. Go Vikes!!!

I agree. I haven't felt this good with the Vikings in a really long time. With an improved offense and a much better defense, I am thinking SuperBowl baby!

Anyone with me?

WOW!, I always thought it was "backed into a corner Packer fans" who brought out the Super Bowl Trump card. Sounds like Bears fans use as well. laugh.gif

Yes, I think we've already established that the Bears won the game because they scored more points. But sometimes the score doesn't always reflect what really happened in the game. In this game turnovers played a huge role. Jones had two fumbles in which the Packers were driving in Bears territory and Favre had an interception that gave the Bears a short field. Did you forget the Packers put up 430+ yards on the Bears defense? I don't think the turnovers will be there this game and without them the Bears will not win. Take also into account what has progressed since that first game. The Packers like last years game are playing good football and will have something to play for. The Bears on the other hand, despite it being a different scenerio will have nothing to play for.

By the way, you never did give me a response to my avatar bet.

Until the Queens take home the hardware both Pack fans and Bears fans can and should use the Super Bowl trump card as often as possible! LOL

And DTE I did respond to your Avatar challenge, I said, "Points?"

Surely a high caliber team like the Packers (who are playoff bound with their potent offense and stingy defense) would love nothing more than to blow out the lowly Bears (who are in dissary with their injury riddled defense and a 3rd string QB) by at least 21 points so if you are feeling strong you should not mind spotting me 3 touchdowns? Bet?

Strato,

Using your theory, wouldn't the Queens and Bears record so far this year also be history? Recent history, but history just the same. I know that Pack fans are considering the loss to the Bears earlier this year as history!

Just ax-ing?

My misunderstanding. I thought your points comment was referring back to the final score of the first game. If you need to hide behind a points spread I'll do it. I'll give you the Vegas opening spread, which typically comes out the Tuesday before the weeks game, which I believe is Dec. 18 for the Bears/Packers. I'll post it then.

I ain't gonna wait for no Vegas spread. Surely you have enough confidence in Brett and the boys to spot me 3 ???

Touchdowns, that is!!! LOL

Come on DTE, man up and pull the trigger. What's the worst that can happen, you have to look at the lovely Monsters of the Midway logo for a week.

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
