      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 .

Gotta love the buzzer beater

Had a league game buzzer beater last night. Here's the background. We show up and two our our better shooters, one of our bigs, and a pretty talented F/G slasher are all out. Long story short we play nip and tuck until the end. One of the other team's guards drives, loses the handle, falls to the ground, we pick up the ball to start a fast break and the refs whistle a foul with 4.1 seconds left. Unbelievable! You can't call a foul to decide the game like that! We were in the bonus so he gets two shots, and hits them both. Personally I would have told the guy to make the first and miss the second. They have two fouls to give. I inbound to a guy at halfcourt and they foul with 2.4 seconds left. We call our last timeout. I call up a play for a staggered screen and an open look, with the first screener trailing so he can get a look. I fire a pass to our first option. They foul him on the catch. Now they have one to give. Hoping we'll run the same play or some such (since we have no timeouts) we try it again. I imbound and one of our shooters is double teamed. One of our bigs has a look but its pretty deep, then I see #12 curling into the corner. Bingo. I get it to him, he puts it on the floor, they don't want to risk fouling lest he be shooting a 3, so they play straight up, he turns and fires and it goes. Nice win. Here it is with #12's postgame interview:

*************************************

My favorite Buzzer Beaters of all time:

* Christian Laettner jumper to go to the Final 4

* Jordan's jumper over Craig Ehlo (The emotions afterwards for both teams are amazing)

* 1997 Playoffs Suns vs. Sonics Rex Chapman off balance falling out of bounds 3 (I must have practiced this one for 2 months straight)

* The play called "Valpo" Valparaiso imbounds length of the court, the ball is tipped out to Bryce Drew who cans the 3 to upset four-seeded Mississippi State

* Tyus Edney's coast to coast layup buzzer beater

* North Carolina State's Lorenzo Wright airball-cleanup dunk at the buzzer

* A few random regular season K.G. buzzer beaters

Anybody else have any favorites that spring to mind?

I have several also!

Malik Sealy vs the Indiana Pacers several years ago! (3 pointer on an out of bounds play!)

Hoffarber's high school basket from the seat of his pants in the High School tournament (ESPN Espy Award!)

Garnett had one last year around X-mas that was nice!

The Gophers have had a few in recent memory.... Can't think of the guys name but he hit a 3 from the top of the key. (I know he left early for the NBA and he was a taller player!)

Whoever beat Iowa in the first round of the NCAA tourney! That 3 pointer from the corner!!!!!

BEST ONE I'VE EXPERIENCED EVER WAS IN HOCKEY!!!!!!

I go to school at Bemidji State University and last year the Beavers were down 2 goals with about 43 seconds left. We got one goal with about 30 some seconds remaining. Then we were down in our own end with 6 seconds and whoever got the puck flung it to center ice where one of our guys got it and took a shot that beat their goalie as time expired. After about 5 minutes of tape review, they awarded the goal!

The game ended in a tie, but it's one thing to hit a buzzer beater in basketball and another to beat a goalie from outside the blue line as time expires!!!!!!!!

Another hockey buzzer beater was the Oilers vs Stars game last year. Stars are up a goal and the Oilers have pulled their goalie. A guy for the Stars has a break away with an empty net, he skates down and goes to shoot and the puck hits a bad piece of ice and jumps over his stick as he shoots. Guy for Edmonton grabs the puck makes a couple of passes and the Oilers score with about 2 seconds left. Unreal. I will see if i can find a link to it.

If this doesn't work just go to you tube and search stars vs oilers goal

Larry Bird and Michael Jordan probably had about 50 buzzer beaters between the two of them. Youtube has some great videos of those two.

Gotta love the buzzer beater!

"Another hockey buzzer beater was the Oilers vs Stars game last year."

I remember this one, perhaps one of the most insane games ever! I only saw the highlights but I remember that the Stars guy basically was right in front of the goal, how did he ever miss that?!?!?! Then the Oilers went down and scored FAST! Great game!

P.S. - the Beavers game was seen in person and there is nothing better than experiencing something like a buzzer beater live.

AND IF you check out youtube there are PLENTY of buzzer beaters and the half court shot ones are also pretty good! -

ANYONE SEE THE ONE WHERE THE GUY THROWS A FULL COURT SHOT AND HITS A LITTLE KID! LOL - CHECK IT OUT HERE:

Funny Half Court Shot

AND THE BEST BUZZER BEATER EVER!

the best last second play i've seen this year is the guy from the Badgers who hit the shot with a few seconds left against Texas, then stole the ball on the inbounds and threw it up in the air as time ran out. Sweet play.

Yeah, I've seen that one. About as good as it gets.

I am partial to the Tyus Edny coast to coaster though!

      Fish Lake Baits in Harris had some nice large leeches a couple of weeks ago. Cliff

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.

      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day.

      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.
    • Wakemup
      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
