      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 .

Should be an interesting game next week. Not a big surprise with NY as they legitimately should have beaten NE in game 16. Seems a lot like 96 with Dallas getting knocked off by Carolina. I don't see GB losing next weekend but you never know.

Who the $% cares? NOONE will beat NE this year- get it through your heads. Even if Moss doesn't touch the ball- they win. Would love to see him rip GB another new one though- sure seemed to love to do it in the purple and gold

Zamboni, you sound like a disgruntled Queen's fan to me? I agree that I don't think the Pat's will get beat this year, but Dallas did, as well as Indy.

I don't think I said anything about beating the Pats, nor did I say the Packers were going to the Super Bowl. I simply stated that the NFC team will have to win in Green Bay to make it to the big game.

Randy Moss this, Randy Moss that.......you queen fans always get your undies in a bunch when the Pack does well......relax and maybe take a boat cruise to take you mind off it grin.gif

the packers should be healthier than the G-men and win the NFC.

it's gonna take a key injury or something to beat the pats. who knows, maybe the san deigo d will get to brady. it kinda sounds like i'm rooting for an injury. i'm really not, i just think thats what it's gonna take.

Well- Rivers might be out, and Tomlinsons hurt as well. Even at 100% I don't think the Chargers had a chance, now they might as well stay home. And BTW- the Giants chances all depend on #10, he has a good Eli game and the Packs in trouble, he has a bad Eli game, and GB has no problems. Trust me, I had Eli on my FF team a couple years ago- never again, most incosistent QB in the NFL

Just look at Eli's game against the Queens. Dallas seemed to pass effortlessly on their defense most of the game, as well as rush for over 100 yards. The Giants finally got some pressure on Romo late in the game, and broke up the passing game.

Well the high temp is expected to be in the low single digits - should make for an interesting and very, very, cold game.

I agree with BnS.

You gotta give the Pack credit. They couldn't run the ball, and ever since Ryan Grant stepped onto the scene they have been smothering other teams and Grant has been running really well. I see a rematch of the 97 Super Bowl with the opposite winners and losers.

Overall, I just have to make the comment that the Packers fans have been pretty good sports this year, not too heady. Can't say the same about the Vikes' fans on these boards...too much whining IMO.

Sometimes the stars align and they did for the Pack. Young players playing well, decent schedule, tough at home, Favre playing like he's ten years younger...gotta give them credit.

Whatcha gonna do Pack when #4 retires?- back to mediocrity. I said it before- I like Favre, but hate the Packers. One question-when he does (finally) retire- what do you guys think he will do-broadcaster, coach, maybe just chill out on his acreage?

rodgers is already better than any qb the vikes have, so should be another nfc north title \:\/

i think he'll lay low and spend time with his family. he's too goofy to be a coach and to boring a speaker to be on tv. i do think he should call it a career after this dream season no matter what. cool.gif

zamboni, I doubt it'll actually be mediocrity. Sure, Favre is the spirit and the on-field leader of the Pack, but they've got some good young talent there to build around, and if they can find even a decent quarterback to lead them (they already have one in the wings) I'd expect them to hang around .500 for the first season or two and sort of hope to limp into the wild card round. Uh, kind of like the record and playoff hopes the Vikes usually have.

Aside from being born in LaCrosse and having a childhood there during the Lombardi era — and so being genetically and environmentally unable to be a fan of any other pro football team — I've HATED the Dallas Cowboys ever since people stared calling them "America's Team." Yuck. Same reason I never want to see another winning Atlanta Braves season. America's Team. Sheesh. Give me a break. I can't tell you how happy I was to see the Giants take advantage of their fourth-quarter panic attack.

Prediction? As Eli goes, so go the Giants, and you never know how Eli's going to go. I agree somewhat with what was already stated. If he's at the top of his game it's going to be nip and tuck with no clear advantage. If he's not playing that well, the Pack should handle it with ease.

I think with the temps in the low single digits it will be interesting to see how Favre handles it. He didnt handle it well against the bears a couple weeks ago, but it was also windy to. I have to believe the cold weather will equalize the teams even more. I think Burress as big and physical as he is will be able to get free off the line of scrimmage and give the giants a few big play opportunities but the weather may make it difficult for Eli to connect. It will truely come down to a few turnovers and/or big special teams plays. The giants have to make sure they don't allow a Jennings or Driver 8 yard slant to go 80 yards also.

I said it earlier, but will say it again with a prediction-

Peyton type Manning shows up:

Giants 24- Pack 14

Archie type Manning shows up:

Pack 27- Giants 7

When Eli does well, so does the flow of their "D", thats why theres a difference in my scoring.

i think the run games will be pretty equal. the big guy for the giants is built for the weather and runs well. it may come down to a big return somewhere. that D line for the giants is a little scary. i don't expect strahan to get a sack like the record breaker a few years ago, but they are gonna try and put pressure on. i expect lots of quick slants and screens. surprise, surprise.

Forecast for sunday: high of 4 degrees and winds gusting to 19mph. Thats worse than what the pack played in against Chicago. Wonder how Favre will respond this time as well as the GB punter.

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!
