      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 .

Thoughts on Gopher Signing Day

It is nice to see the Goph's are at least 3rd in the Big Ten behind Ohio State and Michigan in recruiting class rankings(although a few sites have them 4th behind Illinois as well), but I must say I am dissappointed in us not landing Brewster's own son! Don't get me wrong, he shouldn't have to go and play for his dad, but if Tim Brewster can't convince his son to play for his so called "Gopher Nation" I would have a hard time seeing him sell me or my son on the idea. What do you guys think about the incoming class????

Looks like a good recruiting class. The son's decision could be based on PT. Also avoids people saying his dad did the work for him. If his son played and didn't play well but stayed in there would be a lot of questions if Coach just wants his son on the field. College recruiters are salesman, salesman stretch the truth and say what you want to hear, but parents are supposed to be honest and tell the real deal. Coach probably said, "This is what we have here in "Gopher Nation" grin.gif, but you need to make your own decision on where to go." Plus isn't college about getting away from your parents?

Maybe Brewster's kid will play at St. John's.

His kid will play at Texas. A far cry from the U and a farther cry from St. Johns.

I really like the recruiting class as well, especially considering where this program has been the last year or two. The Metrodome didn't bring these recruits to the U of M. Neither did the cold weather, especially all the kids from Texas and down south. It was the "salesmen" that sold this program. So Brewster and his assistant coaches deserve some major credit. This recruiting class is a great start for Brewster. It will be an on-going process that won't happen overnight, but today definitely is a step in the right direction.

It will be interesting to see how the Brewster crew is able to coach and retain these recruits now. Good recruits won't lead to championships if everyone leaves after their sophomore year....like gopher hockey and basketball.

I wanna believe that he is a good coach and a good salesman, but he still has to prove it. Mason would have had a better record last year, but I understand sometimes you have to take 2 steps back in order to go one step forward. Time will tell.

As far as Brewster's kid and he went to Texas for PT.... I hope you mean Primetime, not playing time. If you say he went to Texas for playing time..... I think he would have gotten plenty of that here!

I've heard that many better be in summer school if they hope to be eligible.

Agree 100%!

Also, Brewsters kid would be an instant starter here at the U. He is a top notch stong safety/linebacker type. He is another 4-star recruit, I am disappointed we didn't get him.

I see Rivals ranked the Gophers No. 17 in the nation for recruiting class. Pretty good for a team that only won one game last year.

Brewster did a great job! Most likely the best class for the gophers since rating recruits and classes as a whole became common. I love all the speed on D, alot of these guys should be ale to come in and make a difference.

Not sure where you heard that, but all 30 who are now signed are expected to be full qualifers. Only JUCO Traye Simmons has to take a single online course and will be able to join the team this fall.

I'll agree he did a nice job recruiting some solid players, but he has yet to prove that he can "win" when they start keeping score. I hope he takes us to the Rose Bowl and gives us a reason to start saying "Gopher Nation." I just won't annoint him quite yet. He has a good track record as far as recruiting, just waiting to see it in the "coaching" aspect.

I also heard somewhere that there are a few recruits that need to pass some summer classes to become eligible, but I can't remember where.

Brewster just doesn't stop!! The gophers recieved the verbal commitment from Moses Alipate for the 2009 class. He is looking to be the top player out of MN next year and in the top 100 in the nation. I know there is still a year for him to change his mind, but just one more thing to get gopher fans excited.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....

      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
