      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 .

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?

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
