      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 .

Recommended Posts

Heard on the news he was fighing with bouncers in a bar in FL. What is the matter with these loosers? You make millions, can you not stay out of trouble for a few years and earn your money and then do what you want?

I heard about that to. These athlete's have life by the you know what and they go out and do something like this just stupid. Plus what the heck is he doing out at 6:30am and then this happens. I hope this bouncer he hit presses any charge possible against him and McKinnie get an earful from Childress and gets cut.

Plus he comes back to the club with a weapon?? Your 6'7 and weight about 350 and you need a weapon to fight, your a P word in my book.

No kidding. You are a professional football player in the NFL. Start acting like a professional. These guys that make it to the pro's think they are above the rest and nothing can happen to them. He isn't that good anyway. Teach him a lesson and cut him. This isn't his first offense. He was caught in a fight with Marcus Johnson outside that gas station and he was caught with his pants down on the Party Boat. Kick this guy to the curb.

If i was a millionaire and only worked 20-25 odd weeks of the year...I'm sure i would get in some trouble too.

Not to mention a few visits to strip clubs and such.

At least he charted a bus for the festivities and wasn't driving...

Yeah, at least he thought about that. Cut him some slack. It's only his second time violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. He's getting close to figuring out how not to get into trouble. j/k

I hope the Vikes put principles before winning. Eventually, this will pay-off and winning will follow. IMO.

The real problem with the league is if we cut him there are 20 other teams standing in line to sign him as he walks out of Chilly's office.

There needs to be a rule about teams signing players that are cut for conduct reasons otherwise cutting them means nothing.

We cant afford to lose him on the offensive line. Innocent until proven guilty. He may end up having all the charges dropped.

I agree the guy is an idiot and should not risk what he has but what I don't get is why athletes are held to a higher standard. If I see a mechanic get into a bar brawl I don't think his boss should fire him. If a salesman gets carried away with a stripper on his personal time do we call his company and ask for his walking papers?

I know my opinion won't be popular but I don't think he has done anything that means he should lose his job. He may be guilty of making some pretty stupid decisions but a twenty something single guy getting drunk and in a fight is not exactly news worthy unless you are an athlete. Being an high paid athlete makes it more stupid but it doesn't make it more criminal.

After the party boat incident he made this quote: "I want to be an example of everything that is good about the Vikings and the state of Minnesota.".

I'm sure there will be an out of court settlement like always happens with people with money. Sometimes you have to live by your words though and that wasn't a good example of the Vikings and Minnesota.

Some of these athletes need to pick their friends a little better though. Everything you do is going to be on the news, so don't go in public with questionable characters that have nothing to lose. We didn't hear anything about the people he was with.

Im not trying to defend him, but come on people! The charge against him is what a misdameaner! You guys have him strung up and ready to be hung! We dont know the circumstances behind it either. What if someone else started it, what if someone shoved his wife/girlfriend? We dont know! If this was you or me doing this, it wouldnt be in the media, we would get a $150 fine, maybe some probation. But because he plays pro sports he should be held to a different leval of the law? You want him fired? He is in his mid 20's, on vacation, and had a few drinks. Beleive it or not, some people will target pro atheletes, and egg them on. Give him a break!

He is being charged with a felony because he hit the guy with a pipe, to quote the strib

"The 28-year-old was arrested and charged with aggravated battery, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence."

Either way he is a giant douche....

You and I wouldn't be on the news, but I don't make millions and in the public eyey all the time either. That's the career you chose so that's what you live with. Fly straite for ten years and you retire a millionare, too much to ask? Besides, if I get a felony I get fired from the hospital I work for. No questions, they don't let felons work there.

Would you get fired because of a bar fight and you were being charged with a felony? Or would they wait and find out if you were guilty first before firing you?

I dont mean to be defending him at all, I agree he probably is a thug, but thug or not we have to fair! If he is found guilty, ban him from the nfl. But that wouldnt happen. The new age Vikings would just fire him, then another nfl team would just resign him. Probably the Packers, or Dallas.

Well the vikings can't cut him until after everything settles down...the players association wouldn't have anything to do with that.

THey have to wait it out and see what happens.

Very good points but a professional athlete is a representative of the company he works for and his actions reflect on that company. There are plently of jobs that are also held to etiquette standards that could lose their jobs over an instance like this, unless they have enough money to cover it up.

I'm not saying it's right but it's the way it is.

If a few players were made examples of then maybe this type of thing would stop. Can you imagine standing outside a bar and seeing a guy the size of McKinnie coming at you carrying a pipe and in a bad mood?

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.
    • NELS-BELLS
      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels
    • Wanderer
      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.
    • icepike 1
      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.
    • FirstIce
      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.
    • icepike 1
      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck. 
    • Billy G
      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
