      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 .

Section Finals Tonight

Recommended Posts

Anyone headed down to the Target Center to watch Minnetonka/Eden Prairie & Edina/Jefferson tonight? I'm planning to be there by 5:00 at the latest for tickets.

Predictions? I'm taking Mtka & Edina.

Can you catch these games on the radio?

I'm debating on going!

I'll take the Jaguars and unfortunately Eden Prairie to win.

It will be interesting to see how many attend this and if the move to Target Center from Rucci was the right call.

Good call both the favorites won last night convincingly.

The games were broadcast on myfoxtwincities website.

Yeah, the Mtka/EP game was actually really close until the third. Mtka. rolled three/four lines and seemed to wear EP down and really kept them in-check. They only outshot EP by 3-4 shots for the game, but they had much better scoring chances. Once they got up by two goals in the third, the air came out of EP's bubble and the game was essentially over. EP pulled the goalie with 3 minutes left and Tonka got an open netter, and the 7th goal was a good effort, but EP had really lost interest in playing defense at that point.

Jefferson really handed the game to Edina in the first period. Bad giveaways and turnovers and Edina just buried the chances they were given. I took off after the second period when it was 4-0 as it was obvious Jefferson wasn't really going to make a game of it.

Looking like a good field so far, with Duluth East qualifying last night. Should be another good tourney! Can't wait!

I guess its the best there is if you care about HM and WBL, to the rest of the state its just eh...another final between HM and WBL, its pretty much expected they will play in final at the behining of the year.

Just give you a hard time scsavre, can't bring myself the cheer for those private schools.

Private school or not, Hill has been playing really well lately. As much as I'd like to see WBL win, I'll say Hill wins 5-2.

The schools that really bug me are the private schools that play at the single A level like St.Thomas Academy.

Dang it bear, I thought we were on the same page. Honestly though, this rivalry is different than most. You can throw out the records cause it can always go either way. I remember in late 90's Hill was undefeated, WBL was a 500 team, and they won in double OT. It has happened so many times. It used to be meaner though, Hill used to get more guys from WBL.

I actually spent a little time playing for Hill and trust me I have heard everything there is to say about the private school advantage. It is funny cause I despise Holly Angles and Cretin is a waste of time.

It is tough to say which conference they should be in, cause enrollment wise they should be Class A, but talent wise obviously AA. Personally I think ST Thomas needs to move up to AA, I wonder if A likes having that power house there or something.

Wish this one was on TV,

Ha ha we are almost on the same page, I just have to cheer for every team that plays HM! No doubt HM WML is a huge rivalry but there are at least 10 other rivalries that could be considered the best in the state. I won't even try to say who is #1 and really there probably isn't a #1 because everyone has their favorites, lets just say it makes for some great hockey this time of year and leave it at that.

I also agree with an earlier post about some of those private schools who regularly beat AA teams but still play in the A state tournament, it just doesn't seem right. I think we all miss the one class tournament, too bad we probably won't see them again. In my dream world I would like to see one and only one 16 team state tournament. At the start of the year you opt in to play for state or not. The teams that don't man up can have their won little tournament somewhere for fun but it wouldn't be considered state. You could even seed the sections so the top teams get a bye or two so we don't run into any of those 25-0 scores.

      Is it always impossible to get a hold of Jeff?? It took me like 8 calls to get a hold of him, brought my boat down after I got a hold of him. I told him I was hoping to use it this weekend for one last trip...I've called him multiple times for an update and he never answers... Seems odd for a business.

      You know it’s a good day when you’re thumb looks like that from lipping the fish! What sizes are you getting right now, Rick?

      Recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) is anticipated to open on several Schedule I Lakes in the Grand Rapids fisheries work area beginning in late October, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule II Lakes, will open Nov. 3. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Anticipated opening dates are as follows: Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec.3, for Deer (near Deer River), and Turtle (3.5 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Side and South Sturgeon (1.75 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Big Balsam and Nashwauk (1.75 inch mesh). Schedule II Lakes Lakes open to whitefish and cisco sport netting Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10: Bass (north basin). Ball Club. Bowstring*. Little Bowstring. Cut Foot Sioux*. Deer (near Effie). Grave. Jessie. Maple. Pokegama. Round (near Squaw Lake –1.75 inch mesh). Rush Island. Sand (near Max)*. Swan.  (1.75 inch mesh) Twin Lakes (near Marble). Winnibigoshish* and Little Winnibigoshish* (1.75 inch mesh). *Bowstring, Cut Foot Sioux, Sand, Winnibigoshish and Little Winnibigoshish are designated infested waters because of the presence of faucet snails or zebra mussels. Nets and equipment used in infested waters may not be used in any other waterbody unless they have been dried for ten days or frozen for two days. Fishing regulations require that: Netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. A person may use only one gill net, not exceeding 100 feet in length and 3 feet in width. One end of net must have a pole, stake, or buoy projecting at least two feet above the surface of the water or ice. Nets must have an identification tag attached near the first float of the end that is projecting from the surface of the water or ice. Identification tags must be a minimum of 2 ½ inches by 5/8 inch permanently bearing the name and address of the owner. Identification tags for marking nets are provided by the owner. Nets may not be set after sunset or raised before sunrise. All gill nets must be set and lifted by the licensee only. Anyone assisting in the taking of whitefish or ciscoes must have proper licensing. Nets must be tended at least once every 24 hours and all gamefish and non-target species must be immediately released from the net. A net may not be set in any water deeper than six feet. A net may not be set within 50 feet of another net. Minimum gill net mesh size shall be no less than 1-3/4 or 3-1/2 inch stretch measure depending on the lake (see full list of lake and size regulations online). Nets used in designated infested waters must be dried for a minimum of 10 days or frozen for 2 days before using in a different water body. Nets should be dried for 10 days or frozen for 2 before moving from any lake to another. Nets used in spiny water flea and/or zebra mussel infested waters should be not used in any other waterbody Nets should be transported in sealed container. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be bought or sold. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be used as bait. Within the Leech Lake Reservation boundaries, the possession limit for whitefish taken by sport gill-netting is 25, and the possession limit for ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting is 50. Net placement should not inhibit use of the lake by other boaters. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Grand Rapids area office at 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or call 218-328-8836.

      It seemed cheap to me for all the functionality.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.

            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.
