      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 .

I think the hit was blown out of proportion. His momentum was carrying him past the guy so he put his arm out to tackle the guy. The penalty was way too stiff. Dick "nighttrain" Lane used to tackle everyone just like it.

I agree that hit was legal it wasnt like a sack its a fast game and there was no control in the secondary $75,000 is way too much for a hit like that

I am glad they fined him $75,000 for the cheap shot of Ferguson. You could clearly see when he was on the sideline he couldnt even convince his own teamate's it was an accident. You show me one player who makes a tackle like that using his arm across a guys throat and then I will be convinced it wasnt a cheap shot. And dont say Nightrain lane, that was a different era of football.

The NFL has to make an example out of this guy with everything going on in sports today. Meaning the hit Burtuzzi laid on Moore in NHL, Detroit-Pacers brawl, chair throwing incident in Oakland with the Texas pitcher.

I would say $75,000 and suspended for the rest of the season would not be too big a penalty for that. Ferguson was paralyzed from the waist down for a few hours the afternoon after the hit. There is no way that hit can be called an accident. His career might be over, who knows.

I'm sure your opinion is slighted due to your Packer dislikes. Had that been Burleson laying on the dome turf with paralysis for a while, I think your opinion would be different. I know its a fast paced game, but players still need be able to have control over their bodies.

I agree with down to earth. He can say he was going for the ball, I tend to disagree. Jacksonville was up by 11 points I believe, the game was coming to an end... I think Darius took a cheap shot and the fine fit the penalty... even though it was a packer that got jacked. ( : There is no place for that in sports. I think he was sorry the second after he did it, but it was too late at that point.

I think that it was a great hit and he should be commended for laying out a greenbay packer like that. The vikes should do that to Favre this friday, only this time hit him a little harder so he's parylized.


I can only hope you are not serious with that comment. If you are you may need to look at sports and life from a different perspective. Nothing like wishing for someone to be paralyzed. Nice.

I thought it was a cheap shot and he should be suspended for at least one game. You can't convince me he was going for the ball. It is not a legal hit. Hoping that the Vikings do that to Farve? Big Island Dude are you sure you are a football and not a wrestling fan?

What should have he done to make the tackle? As you can see with the way both player's momemtum was taking them, the only way to make the tackle barring tripping the guy was by sticking his arm out somehow. would you have perferred a stiff arm to the chest, stomach or groin???

Maybe he should have tried to grab the jersey and pull him down? ONly Joey Browner "the strongest hands in football" could have done that. grin.gif

I don't think it was a intentional malicious hit. When you have only a split second to MAKE A PLAY! There is not a lot of time to think. I don't think letting Fergie go by untouched was an option Darius or his Jax coaches wanted.

Temporarily paralyzed? And released after only one full day in the hospital? C'mon!!!!

A little theatrics with the thumbs up the ENTIRE way across the field makes me a little suspicious too!

The guy couldn't feel his legs. I'm guessing that counts as temporarily paralyzed.

Here is a thought that everyone should remember regardless of the hit being legal or not. Ferguson was severely injured, not faking it and did nothing other than to go up and get the ball. The fear of the player, his teamates and the fans about his health is legit and should not be wished upon anyone.

Here is that all the Vikes and Pack go home to their holidays healthy after a great game. Vikes win of course.

If he was going to try to hurt the guy he would have went in with his helmet. You are in the air flying past the guy and you have no other way of making contact with except with your arm. What do you do just let him go by or do you stick your arm out and make contact. I rather have a forearm hit me than a helmet with a whole body behind it. Blown way up. Only in Packer country.

If Burelson had been hit by Farve that way I say the same thing. Out for the rest of the season. No excuses, period. There are no excuses for what happened. Do you think he had no control over the movement of his arm and it accidently hit his opponent in the head?

Did the NFL change the rule on blows to the head? Last I knew it wasn't legal; doesn't matter if it was accidental or not. I've seen many plays where the DB back goes for a hit an delivers a blow to the head. Are they intentional? NO. Is accidental? Yes. Does the player still get fined? Yes.

It was a good hit. It is not like he grabbed this helmet and pulled him to the ground. He is out there trying to do his job and what happened, happened. It is not a good thing that furguson got hurt from that play and I hope he makes a good come back, but that is football.

I watch the game for the big hits and big plays. It's what makes the game exciting, but to wish that someone gets hurt is wrong.

Viks are going on a run. See you in the superbowl.

We'll see how these final two weeks play out in the NFC I may end up agreeing with you on this point.

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you 
    • eyeguy 54
      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
