      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 .

Big week for the Wild.

Recommended Posts

Scott K

Its going to be a big week for the Wild, they can gain a few points in the next week or so. We could be looking at 2nd place in the standings by the end of the week. Then again we could drop a few spots also, but it will be a good test on how good they are. Go Wild. I Think they can handle the Red Wings and Dallas.

It will be a good game tonight since both teams have had a couple days of rest. For some reason Dallas doesn't scare me to much and then I think we should beat the Islanders on Saturday. If the Wild go 2-1 this week I will be happy. Plus they have 1 or 2 games in hand on Calgary,Colorado, and Vancouver.

They're looking good so far tonight, hopefully they can sneak a few more by Hasek while he's doing the crappie flop all over the crease. grin.gif

Wild played great for 2 periods then went into a shell for the 3rd. You could tell a goal was coming. It looked like a soft goal but whatever, a goal is a goal. The Wild was just content on chipping the puck out to center in the 3rd. The Wild took the play to the Red Wings for the first 2 periods and should have done it in the 3rd and they would have ended up with 2 points instead of one.

Tough loss against the wings. Atleast we got a point in the standings! The team is looking tough, I like to see them rattle of 5 0r 6 wins in row.

In the first 2 periods they looked the best I have seen them play all year, quick on the puck, then alot of quick shots on goal. Then they decided to play prevent defense, that doesnt work for football, it wont work for hockey either!

Glad to see they did get a point though.

Yep, too bad they couldn't finish it off. Backstrom has been letting in some soft goals this year. I thought we got rid of that problem when Roloson left...

Tough loss against Dallas.

I thought they played a great game, although they couldn't find the back of the net.

I liked the tribute to Mike M. he is a class act guy! \:D

The Wild had 2 close games and lossed them, they need to start winning these games, although they did play real well. The schedule is a little easier now for the next few games, so its time to put a winning streak together.

I agree with the Isles and Blues coming up we should get a couple of victories.

Why did coach pull Backstrom after the 2nd? I thought the first goal was soft but he played all right after that. Wild need to win games that they should be able to win. Wild need an offensive defenseman in the worst way. Let's hope Blake or Campbell end up in a Wild sweater.

I agree, I don't understand the move! Thats a game the wild should of won, the dominated the whole game. It was tough for Harding to come in cold in the third and be expected to be dominate. I think that was a blown game by the wild and the coaching staff.

Came out with 2 points but the Wild have to tighten up the goaltending. Giving up 4 goals to the Nucks isn't very good. Nucks have only one line that can really do any damage. Sedin boys and Markus Naslund.

Yeah, luckily they pulled 2 points out of that one. At least they've been keeping themselves on top of the division. It's so tight every point makes a big difference.

I missed the game, looking at the game summary, it seemed like a tough rivilary game. Did I see right, that Rolston got 5 minutes for fighting! Thats awesome, I wish I would of seen my favorite wild player mix it up alittle!

Rolston came in hard on the end boards and pushed Willie Mitchell from behind. Mitchell embellished and crappie flopped to the ice. Some cat for the Nucks came in and just started swinging and Rolston had no choice but to start throwing haymakers. Didn't last to long as both players went to the ice almost right away. I never seen Rolston so mad after the fight. It was his second fighting major in his career and first since 1995 when he was with the Devils. You know who the coach was for the Devils back then?..........Jacque LeMaire

I was thinking that Rolston's hit on Mitchell could have been a penalty for boarding? tough call but Mitchell looked quite a aways from the boards, especially a dangerous play being hit from behind sorta. oh well, At least the Wild pulled two points and gave one to the Canucks.

The Wild are finally getting a few points ahead in our division. They just need to keep it up. Being Dallas played 3 more games then us. We could end up in second over all!

Still should have been a 2 point night for the Wild and 0 for Van. That goal off the faceoff was a killer. Wild need better faceoff percentages, that's where an addition like Forsberg could really help.

Fedoruk is impressing me, on Utube he's a punching bag, but here he is skating and playing well, did a great job covering a Burns rush last night.

I like what I see, except the end of games is always an adventure.

Wild have one faceoff guy and that is Koivu. Forsberg would help this team in so many ways IF he comes in healthy. Fedoruk is playing really well. The Wild should try to move Boogaard. When healthy he still only plays about 4 minutes a night.

The Wild never seem to blow out anyone. Always one goal games. It would be nice to see them blow someone out every now and then.

Yea Cjac Fedoruk on youtube is just a punching bag. They mentioned something the other night that Lemaire told Fedoruk if he was gonna play for the wild he has to play right and not just skating around looking for someone to drop the gloves with.

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
