      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 .

Two of the biggest "tools" in the Shed!

Did I hear right,

Moss and Brady are skipping the Pro Bowl? Cry babies! Be a man and show up if you are honored enough to get picked. What is the worse thing that can happen, you spend a week in Hawaii and don't get into the game. You know if the Pats would have won the Super Bowl, thier mugs would have been all over Hawaii!

Doesn't Brady have an injured ankle?? Moss who know's why he doesnt want to go. I saw Favre passed on the pro bowl also, Garcia is taking his place. I don't even bother watching the pro bowl.

Wild,

I guess I can give Brady a pass but why would he not announce it before the game? I guess he might not want to tip the fact that he was hurt but everybody knew that anyway. I think if I was honored by the selection I would show up, take a series of snaps, hand the ball off a few times and then stand on the sidelines and wave to the fans. This is one of the all star games that really drives me crazy with all the players declining to go. Moss though is another story....TOOL! Agreed?

By far the worst all star game of the 4 major sports.

All "all-popular" games are boring and pathetic. At least baseball means something and they try....basketball, hockey, and football are just pointless....last year at the pro bowl I think the biggest hit was on a punter......basketball no defense...and also hockey no d and no checking.......where is the intensity when they played hard in these games..i.e Pete Rose knocking over the catcher....Good stuff!!

I can see it both ways, I wouldn't want to see A.P blow his knee out because of a hard hit or Gaborik for the wild risk an injury because of check along the boards.

Rundrave,

Not sure about Urlacher but if he did then that would be wrong too! I just think that the attitude of the players reflects on the product on the field. I agree with whoever posted on this thread that said NFL Pro Bowl is the worst of the 4 major sports. If you don't think it is an honor to be elected then you should withdraw your name at the start of the season and say that you will not attend even if you are chosen. Then the fans could see who the real "stars" are.

Tommie Harris has been hurt all year with a nagging groin and hammy injury and just had surgery on his knee I believe.

As for Briggs, put yourself in his shoes. You are about to sign a contract somewhere that will be huge. Why in the world would you want to risk getting injured (Drew Brees) in a meaningless Pro Bowl and risk getting a huge payday. I would skip out as well. Now that I think about it, he did have an injury and didn't play in one of the last three or four games.

His teammates seem to like him and his coach has nothing good to say about him. Since I dont know him personally I would say that based on what people who work with him say, Yes, he is a stand up guy and performs his job well.

98 rec. 1493 yards 23 TDs wow!

Yes, his current team seems to like him. And as long as things are going well he is likable. Ask the Raiders, or the Vikes that played with Randy when they were struggling. I think you would find a different opinion of the guy.

Thanks Fish,

My thought exactly but I will let Sled speak his mind.

Everybody is always a good winner, being a good loser and acting with class when things are not going your way is the mark of a true "stand up" guy. Like an old timer once said about touchdown celebrations....Act like you been there before. I think the coolest thing to do is when a guy just hands the ball to the ref and bolts to the sidelines to celebrate with his team! That's "stand up".

The should get the guys together and just have a fun competition...not a game. The Pro Bowl is a joke.

But still, it is an honor to be selected and you should go! If you don't go, it shows you have no class.

actually moss was well liked in the locker room at minnesota...after he was traded for "being a distraction" they asked the players and they all said they liked him.

the fact is mccombs didn't want to sell the team leaving a superstar there with a chance to win.

remember moss leaving was supposed to help duncecaps i mean culpeppers progression...lmmfao

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
