      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 .

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.

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.

      Sorry to hear. Being the guide-dad you want everyone to have fun. No fish on worms? Had to be the Eclipse!

      Trip didn't go as planned. I had been asking some questions on here to get some info/ideas for the trip. Greatly appreciated all the stuff you guys shared with me. Unfortunately most of it wasn't in the plans  Camped at fall lake, as this was the first time my wife tagged along in a few years, and I thought his would be the most family friendly. After getting setup on Sunday, I launched the boat and goofed around for a bit, but didn't catch anything. My daughter was using worms, and she didn't even get a nibble. Is there not much for bass in fall?   Monday we had to spend some unexpected time in town, making certain purchases. Made it to snowbank late. Trolled for lakers, but only marked ciscoes. Once we started fishing for bass, we caught a few, but then the rain fell. Had it just been me and the 2 older kids, we could have fished through it. But with my wife and the youngest, it wasn't going to happen!   Pretty much the same thing happened on Tuesday. Went to burntside, but the lake was too windy. Went back to town, let the kids play at the park, then had lunch at the boathouse (I highly recommend the motorboat burger). Then we decided to keep it close and simple, and went to miner's pit. Weather got the best of us again. At least this time, my wife caught a few fish. No trout though.   Sometimes there's more to camping trips than good fishing though. We still had lots of fun, and I'm already making some notes for my next Ely trip, which I don't even know when will happen.

      Tommy, can tell by your posts and photos that your dogs are very special to you and Bonnie.  I shed a tear or two while reading this.  I got a kick out of you telling me here after I saw you driving through Cloquet a couple years ago.  You saw my dog riding co-pilot and you mentioned that you also had a dog in the passenger seat (can't remember which one) and Bonnie in the back seat riding with the other dogs.  Good Stuff! Take care, Bill

      I pop in here a few times lately for some humor for myself, it is hard to do. No, very hard to do...but this sight makes me smile sometimes so here ya go...FYI.   Moe Rock passed August 14th  ~  4 days before what would have been his 11th birthday.
      He was our rock in many ways and was one of the smartest retrievers we have ever had in our family in 30 some years.
      If you knew Moe Rock you can understand, remember. He was so strong an fought the cancer just over FOUR MONTHS....
      Pills n tests an more pills an more tests...until well CANCER SUCKS.
      In the end the cancer wins no matter how hard he fought or how hard his TEAM fought with him and for him. Bonnie an I, the special vets an techs at Osceola Animal hospital and the top doc's, students and assistants and at the U of M vet center tried very hard and long to help him in his battle. He never changed, stood tall an strong, bright eyes an devilish smile.
      Truth is we only stayed a couple steps ahead of the cancer that took him that day at 5 PM.
      He was strong right up until he passed with Bonnie an myself holding his paws an making his passing go easy. Bother Polar Bear Boy looking on also.
      Don't make any of this easy saying this, but he was not doing good at 5 am Sunday morning as that cancer stuff just jumped him good this weekend an well,  he lost.
      We never gave in, nor did he. This weekend at the cabin he tried to enjoy himself, DID enjoy it all.  He swam, couple dock jumps, we fished morning runs an sunset, did boat rides, worked on some shore n boat small projects an ate pretty dang well. He was fine until bedtime when we knew an HE knew something was happening.
      Not good. CANCER SUCKS!
      We had a great time, Moe only showing to Bonnie an myself an his Brother Polar Bear Boy he was not feeling to good in the evenings the last week. Very sad. Never forget Moe Rock or his up north name of NoMoeToe given to him by long time guest in my boat from Capser Wyoming the late Mary Cob and his Chisago City area name the Fire Chief gave him of ThreeToeMoe. He was not only special to me but to a host of people in this area an on or around Lake Vermilion for his whole life.
      Good boy, darn good boy. One regret is not everyone that knows of Moe or knows him only online did not get to meet him in person.
      You would have enjoyed him in many ways as we all did.
      Loveable, big nut, sweet, smart, goofy, odd and a total tick that like to start fights with this brothers an then leave them to settle it while he went an ate their food or got best seat on casting deck my big black boat.
      Yup, Moe Rock was a Tick.   Any way....very sad are we, but he fought like tuff darts, a good long fight.
      Never whined a bit, did as was asked an stayed pretty much himself the whole time until that Sunday morning really.
      Not once showing anyone not in family he was sick, real sick. Still loved his truck rides, belly rubs, swimming his pool, wratling with me n Bear, watching TV, Playing on Kendel or computer with Bonnie an just plain being Moe to his brother Bear Boy...big smiles. Fishing, how he love3d fishen...mostly topwater of any kind, but he would go with me anytime, anytime....true fish hound was he, our sweet Moezy.
      I did not tell anyone about Moe rock but Mom Joanne as figured he might kick cancer to the curb an well..........
      Never gave up hope but most times cancer wins in retriever hounds, even our sweet Moe Rock.
      PEACE!
      Very Sad. Now running with his fellow Mallard Island Marauders that crossed over before him, Barney Toonder, Homer J., Bailey, Beckey, Buddy.....plus Jack n Ev the Kats.
      Some good party.....good food, big smiles and all that go with them....all very special. Lov ya Moe......I miss you my boy....rest easy until we meet again.   Keep on rocken!   Tommy
