      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 .

Owens Done For the Year

Recommended Posts

Down to Earth

WOW, Just read a report in which Owens will be having surgery and will be done for the year. Now all of a sudden the NFC becomes even more wide open(in my opinion). No longer is it Philly and then the rest of the conference. Will definately make things a lot more interesting on the NFC side.

Hopefully none of you have him on your fantasy team and are playing for championships. Fortunately for me my opponent does.

Philly still has a heck of a defense so they won't roll over just yet. I agree that it does even the field in the NFC playoff race. I bet you'll see defenses stack up the line to stop the run and bump the receivers to interrupt their routes. I still think they're the NFC favorite but it probably puts them behind about 4 other teams in the AFC.

A buddy of mine in my fantasy leauge has T.O. and all year I've heard about how great he is, how much of a thouroubread he is, how he deserves to win the Super Bowl.

Thank you football gods for sittin his overexposed @55 on the sidelines for the rest of the year.

Philly was the best team in the NFC the last several years without T.O and really only needed defensive improvement to get over the hump. T.O. is probably the single most overrated player in the league and they are still far and away the class of the NFC even without him.

Gotta admit though, I bet all the NFC teams in contention aren't dissapointed he is out. He is a game changer and a deep threat, just look at the rest of the stats for the offense, no one even comes close to his production, he will be missed big time;.

lawdog,

You really don't think he means that much to the Eagles or do you just not like him? I admit that I figured he would be doing the same thing by this time of the season as he did in San Fran, having a sub par season and whining about not getting the ball enough. IMO I think he has made a HUGE difference to their offense and with him out it makes D coordinators jobs a lot easier. 8 in the box and let McNabb try to beat you with nothing to throw to. I still think Phili is the best team in the NFC but without TO they are no better then the last 2 teams that lost in the NFC championship game.

Viks in the NFC championship against the Eagles and the Viks win. Eagles can't make it over that hump in the road.

Go Viks.

A queens fan calling out another team for not being able to win the big one? That's funny.

Probably mostly because I hate him... I do think he is good, but he's not near the game breaker a Moss is or the consistent star say a Marvin Harrison is. He's definitely their best reciever and he's certainly good, but he isn't anywhere's near the top of the crop like he hypes himself and some others hype him.

I definitely disagree with your statement that they aren't any better than the team that lost the last two championship games without him. Their biggest improvement was on the defense in my opinion, not their offense (which has always been good). The Freak's pass rush was non-existent in Philly last year and their defense is what makes them much better than previous year's teams in my opinion. Say what you want about stats and that, but you still can't win a championship with no defense. Maybe the Rams won one with a marginal defense, but it wasn't a terrible defense and they too improved it with free agency the year they won...

      Hey I am planning on ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka this winter with a friend and I am using a snowmobile to get to the lake from the trails. I would enter onto the lake in Orono off the Luce line trail and end up in Stubbs bay. I was reading on other forums saying avoid the channels but it seems to be the only way to get around the lake to other bays especially since I am on a snowmobile. I was wondering if they eventually are safe enough to hold up a snowmobile in mid-late January, and if going through them faster helps possibly? I would like to fish around the Smith's bay area and the only way I can do that is going through channels. I know Lake Minnetonka can be sketchy with ice thickness and I don't want to end up through the ice, thoughts? Thanks.   Jim

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
