      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 .

How do the hockey fans feel about the Wild being sold?

Time to spend some money and quit settling for middle of the pack playoff seeds. The expansion franchise excuse is long gone. I hate to see the Wild go the way of the Twins and stock pile all of this talent only to see it leave in intervals instead of never taking a chance and trading some talent for a big time "talent" and making a solid run.

I will take a serious stanly cup run every once in a while with some down years in between over consistently mediocre any day.

Wallmounter, How can the Wild spend more money, when they are already at the salary cap? It's just time for a coach that will open up the talent we have instead of playing grab AASSS hockey

vitalshot5, last I checked the Wild were nearly 4mil under the cap for this year. That is more than enough to go after a Rob Blake or someone like him at the trade deadline to give this team a little punch. Problem is, in order to do that the Wild would have to give up some young talent for a player that will probably only be with the team for the remainder of this year. The Twins have never done it and so far the Wild have never either. So we will go through the year, finish in the middle of the playoff pack and more than likely not make a real push in the playoffs. Then at the end of the year when Rolston, Dmitra, Bouchard and Voros are all free agents 2 out of the 4 will more than likely be gone with the other 2 getting large contracts and no more money to sign free agents to replace them, then we spend how many years trying to build back to where we are today. My point of this long rant is that THIS team has the talent to go far this year with a big addition or two. But more than likely we will remain status quo.

They have 3.42 million left for this year....your not gonna get a difference maker for that kind of money.....It's funny when old jacques let's them open up they can score 4-6 goals a game....but when they play someone good he makes them play conservative and the score 0-2 goals a game and lose.....Players won't help that......coaching will.

I like the new owner's opening line; "MN hockey fans, be assured that I am committed to winning a Stanley Cup". Shocker there?

It kind of reminded me of this spring when Tim Brewster said he was going to win the Big 10 and go to the Rose Bowl.

Well spoken. It would be nice to grab an offensive threat or two along with someone on the blue line for next year.

Bouchard and Voros are restricted free agents so they will more than likely stay. I think they will re-sign Rolston and I think Demitra will be gone. Trading for top talent before the deadline sometimes doesn't put your team over the top. Look at last years trade deadline: The Islanders acquired Ryam Smyth from Edmonton for 2 players and a 1st round pick. Isles got bounced in the 1st round. Bertuzzi went from Florida to Detroit for 2 draft picks. Thrashers got Keith Tkachuk from the Blues for 2 1st roundrs and 2 more picks and a player. Bounced in the 1st round. Our new owner acquired Peter Forsberg for 2 picks and 2 players and didn't do much. The Stanley Cup Champs Anaheim made 3 minor deals for a 3rd tier defenseman and a couple checking line players. It doesn't pay to deal away picks and players for a guy that is going to be on your team for 2 months. If you are going to make a trade do it in the offseason so you have the whole year to work together. There will be changes next year for the Wild ondefense because they have 4 free agents(Carney, Schultz, Nummelin, and Hill) Foster is restricted. That leaves us with 3 defenseman under contract next year. (Burns, Skoula, and Johnsson)

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff
    • TomWehler
      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!
    • seifjr
      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.
    • guideman
      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"
