      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 .

Just watched primetime. They spent twice as much time talking about Moss and whether or not Favres career is done as they did talking about the actual game. What a freakin joke!

I don't condone what Moss did, but gimme a break! Everyone is carrying on as though he actually dropped his pants and mooned the crowd. Moss is no worse than anyone else in the NFL. How many balls has he given to kids in wheelchairs this year and we don't hear a thing about that, but he does one admittedly infantile touchdown celebration and everyone's ready to crucify him.

Roadrunner, I'll admit, when Moss hands the ball off to a fan I appreciate that. The thing to ask ones self is, why does Moss's negative antics appear over everything else the team does? I mean, Culpepper has the best season as a Vikings QB, and if it were not for a player by the last name of Manning, Pepper would be MVP. Yet here we are talking about Moss's antics.

I have fun with my kids doing the Pepper 'get your roll on'... I'd never say 'Hey! lets do the moss moon!'.

I guess it's all a matter of taste.

Again, I'm not saying I condone it, but if they are going to come down on Moss for this particular incident then the league needs to start cracking down on on-field celebrations in general. The "Moss moon" didn't do anything to help anyones perception of Moss's intelligence, but I think the guys who celebrate after every routine tackle or catch look just as ridiculous as Moss did today. I also think Fox Sports and ESPN went out of their way to dwell on it after the game as well. Of course Moss's interview earlier today on ESPN didn't do much for his cause either mad.gif

I just think moss has a sense of humor. When he did the fake mooning. I started LOL. The whole room bursted out laughing. The general public and football fans and commentators every just overanalyze what he does. He is the best natural athlete/football player on the field at any given time.

I'm still laughing about it! Moss owns the Pack and their cheesehead fans and he knows it. He gets their goats and loves to rub it in their faces.

NOW THEY HAVE A WHOLE OFFSEASON TO BE WHINING SINCE WE ENDED THEIR SEASON TODAY!!!!!!!!! smirk.gif

Most celebrations are just that--a celebration. Moss's intent was clearly to incite and insult the fans at the game. I would have to believe that if this isn't over it, it's pretty close to the league's line regarding conduct.

Was I offended by his display and now I'm going to stop watching football? No.

Do I think it makes Moss look like a bonehead? Do I think it takes attention from the accomplishments of the rest of the team? Does it send kids the wrong message? Does it send the message to other teams and the fans that Tice doesn't have control of his team?

Yes, yes, yes, & yes.

I guess nobody here really mooned anybody when they we're in High School. I did. I think it was great. Trade Moss and everyone would start saying what a mistake.

I saw the Moss mooning in my local Legion club. The place went nuts, and I got a good laugh, initially.

Randy's problem seems to be that he can't stop thinking about himself, or think further than 5 minutes down the road, let alone seasons to be played in the future.

While I am glad the vikes won, it is antics like this that could possibly harm the team in the future. Remember when he squirted the official in that Rams game a few years back? He did not get any gimme calls for a while after that one.

I can't believe people are making such a big deal about this. The fans taunted him all game, a little payback in a fun way never hurt anyone. He could have done a lot worse. I mean, it's not like he pulled a Janet Jackson or something. I think the media, especially the Fox show guys, got on him hard becuse Randy ripped them for saying what they said about his previous game antics. Besides, they are all looking for ANYTHING to rip him on. Get over it.

I totally agree Tom. Those Pack fans rode him constantly and then they say he had no class for reacting??? It was all in fun and its not like he actually dropped his pants. Good grief some people need to lighten up!!!

It's funny, I turned my head to play with our puppy in celebration after Moss's touchdown. I hear Collinsworth then say that he did a disgusting act to the crowd. I was thinking "oh crap, what'd he do, give them the bird, or yell obscenities?" I then saw what he did on the replay. This is going to get just as blown out of proportion as walking off the field with 2 seconds left. Go ahead, make him mad, see what happens. You know that Packer fans taunt him from the stands, (even though that is no excuse for rude acts) I found the act quite harmless.

Also, Trade Randy? To who? You can't trade him to anyone in the NFC, that would be death. I like him just the way he is, arrogant, self centered, and probably the best receiver in the NFL. Don't forget we are talking about an organization who gave the Vikings a big slap in the face last year for parading around the Arizona reciever. I didn't exactly see any class in that. We certainly didn't hold a parade for the Saints.

Mosses shenanigans were in no worse taste than the spoof ESPN did about Favre running around naked all the time during the winter to prepare himself for playing in the cold weather (a piece I thought was funny). It was a little hypocritical of them to show that piece and then blast Moss for his actions. If anybody else but Moss did what he did, it would not have garnered this much attention.

People are getting WAY too wrapped up in his celebration! Did we forget this is just a game, not just business?

If a group of guys are out playing street ball and a player moons the others, everyone would laugh and it would be done. Here in the NFL you cannot express yourself in fears of tarnishing the great "name" of the game. If a GB player had mooned the dome crowd, I wouldn't take offense in the least bit. IT'S A GAME!!

Might as well call it the "Non Fun League". That's the way it's heading.

      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.

      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.
