      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 .

You saying the Vikes signed him? If so he will be good for special teams. Maybe even a backup if Ap, CT get hurt. I dont see him being in the back field very much though. I sure hope the Vikes only got him to replace Melweldy More, and not Taylor!

He was signed for special teams. If Chester goes anywhere it would only be for a player that changes out teams outlook significantly.

I think he's here to take over for memo. AP is great but it's even better having CT there to back up and take over if AP goes down. Can't have too many quality backs on your team.

I agree, very nice pick up.....now if we could only find a defensive end.....I guess we'll have to draft another one, boy we've had bad luck drafting DE's in the past 10 years or so. Remember Underwood????

Im sure Allison will start moving more into WR, and I think they will still use Allison for punts, and Hicks for kickoffs.

Yeah, Hicks has never returned a punt in the NFL (not saying he can't), just not his repitoire.

We need a punt returner in the worst way. I am so sick of BWade waving for that Fair Catch...

Hicks is a decent player and looks to be in on 3rd down and times and on certain offensive packages...

If there wasnt such a risk i wonder how peterson would do returning a few punts?? I wouldnt wanna see it happen, especially if he got hurt. Williamson gone yet? if he had hands that were actually useful he woulda been a good returner with his speed. too bad he couldnt catch a ball that was handed to him.

yeah...remember the last 15 DE's we've drafted lol?

the best DE imo we got on the team right now is robison...i hope he gets more playing time this season....i think he can show us some things.

peterson would be a beast returning any kind of kicks because he's a freak of nature...remember when he wins the whole game for us and we somehow blow it like normal and we need a big return and peterson takes it all the down to field goal range? that was awesome....but you definatly don't want your franchise RB being a return man.

allison/hicks should do pretty good with the kicks.

i seen some good things to come out of allison as a wr last season...once our qb play gets better and our young wr's gain experience we should be doing pretty good....they say it takes a good 3 yrs for a wr to adjust to the nfl....i think it's only gonna take rice 2 yrs.

I hope they use Hicks as more of a special teamer and returner. I think Taylor does a great job on 3rd downs so I hope they don't take that away from him.

Yeah - hopefully AP has worked on his package and blitz pickup too.

I would like to see Allison returning punts...

      My rod bag with 5 rods in it fell off my sled while walking out from the public access on Sat. afternoon.
      I didn't notice until I had walked out to a spot and drilled some holes and started to get set up to fish.
      By the time I walked back to shore the bag had been picked up.


      Please let me know if you have any info.
      Thank you,

      Looked like a good time guys. Wish i could have been there unfortunatly i had to work. I hope i can make the next one.

      Got out Saturday afternoon and after putting in some time drilling holes finally found panfish in 20-24 ft, almost in the basin areas I'd look mid winter.  Crappie and sunfish were mixed and we caught almost all of our fish on a small jig and waxworm.  Tried minnows and only caught a couple fish that way, even when we were catching fish on waxworms in a hole 3 ft away.  They seemed to want something to chase so keeping the jig moving and pulling away from them helped quite a bit.  Had 10" of ice where we were fishing and was pretty consistent, but there's lots of reports of extremely varying ice thickness so keep checking ice thickness on your way out.

      WARNING a buddy was on  MELISSA and was aiming towards the crappie hole in the NE Corner/First break to fish out there last night.  He was checking ice and was having 10" of ice then hit 3"!  Please be careful out there.  Needless to say he turned around and went back to the access.

      Best use I can think of for a selfie stick. Great fish.

      I will second what Icehawk said.... some good lakes around you. Briggs chain is close, some very nice fish in that system. I tend to fish fairly shallow(under 10ft) most of the time 6-8 right in or on the edge of the weeds for the gills.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.
