      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.

      Thanks to all those who came out yesterday and it was great to see you all. I had fun catching fish and chatting. I will put another one together later in the year.

      Had another good weekend of fishing.  Fished Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon and found consistent action all hours of the day.  Caught 5 slotters 22-25", and was able to be picky on eaters, only keeping 15-17" walleyes.  Plenty of small eyes also, plus I caught 4 eelpout. I did learn a lesson on how to take eelpout off of the hook.  I tried to lift a 20" pout out of the hole by line and the hook pulled out and embedded the bobber in my styrofoam ceiling.  The next time I used the fish pliers to lift the slimy fish out. Had 10" of ice where I was, and a lot of large wheelhouses were being pulled out there.  Yesterday someone drove a Jeep out to a wheelhouse close by.  I think we will see a lot more vehicles driving out in the next week.  Fortunately the added weight hasn't pushed much water on top of the ice.

      Thanks for the info guys.

      I think the fourm would still be pretty strong....however when they split the fourm sites up & stuff and changed some things a few years ago it pretty much killed this site. Traffic is a crawl.....they blame it on new media like Facebook and other stuff......which is an excuse.....poor one at that.......the other ice fishing website I go to is stronger then ever.......This use to be my favorite site, today it's in sad shape & I only come because I remember what it once was hoping that it gets back to it someday.

      Big Marine had 8" at the north access out to the weeds before the main lake.  Lots of walkers, a number of wheelers.  5 inches past the weeds above the ice before the island.   Access was crazy...very inconsiderate people tripple parking, a guy I was with got parked in, trucks behind and in front of him.  Luckily I was parked beside him and was able to move enough that he could get his truck out.   Fishing was very slow.  Couple panfish, a bass and snake northern.

      I'm definitely itching to get on the river.

      I was out on Hiniker Pond last night. Had no luck with fish but I was after dark. Straight out from the pier about 30 yards you got a solid 3.75 to 4 inches. Duck lake has about 5 inches. Henry had 4 inches last week. Not sure about this week.

        Doc was up there with a couple of his boys on Thursday fishing out of portables.  He gave me a call when he was on the ice.  I said, “. Let me guess what you got on”.  Red stripe Demon with a female fat head hooked through the pooper hole on the dead stick and a purple smelt rattling flyer with a minnow head on the other pole.  I nailed it.  He still uses a jiggle stick for his dead stick.  He had to sign off as a fish came in on the Vex.  Put it in the bucket Shaky.
