      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 .

Be golfing next weekend when the Vikes are playing ball! grin.gif

Just the facts....

Daunte Culpepper threw four touchdown passes -- giving him 11 TD passes and no interceptions against Green Bay this season -- and the Vikings picked off four Brett Favre passes after managing just 11 interceptions all season.shocked.gif

Happy golfing guys... oh and keep an eye on ESPN you may have just seen Bratt Favre's last game!!

Down to Earth

Golfing? Have you seen the weather outside? Actually I did go to the golf course today, but it was to take my 3 year old sledding. Had a blast.

Yes that Viking Defense came up big today? Where was that defensive collapse when we needed it?

Another point on Culpepper, I don't recall the exact stats, but Buzzsaw if you go back to last year as well, the Culpepper stats against the Pack becomes even better.(Found them, add another 397 yards passing, 5 tds, and 0 ints) I don't know what it is with him. Besides his arm he always seems to kill us with the run. To be honest I was surprised the Vikings did not go for it, I think it was in the 3rd and it was like 3rd and 13 and they ended up punting when they had the ball at the Pack 33. Bennett did a great job though puting in inside the 10.

You make a good point on Favre and I refered to it in another thread about whether or not Favre will be back next year or not. With all that has happened in his life the past year it would not surprise me if he does in fact retire. But on the other hand the guy is so competitive I can see him not wanting to go out on a loss like this. As I mentioned in the other post, the play that Favre disappointed me on today was that run and pass beyond the line of scrimmage towards the end of the half. That is a play where he needs to do what he can to get into the endzone or at least pick up the first, which I thought he could have at least done.

Congrats on the win and good luck next week.

A post from ESPN page two:

Join me in jumping off the Brett Favre bandwagon. (Gasp!) When the guy can throw four picks -- and throw away a home playoff game, maybe he isn't Super-Brett anymore. Established in 1997, his rep's credit line is nearly used up.

"Should he retire?" debates are lame, because that's the player's decision; but let the "Can he deliver in the playoffs anymore?" debate rage.

Favre will be around 3-4 more years. They have not even started looking for a replacement for him yet. They had better get on it I would say. He actually made bigger and more stupid mistakes last year. They call him one tough hill-billy. I have not heard him called a smart hill-billy.

He really needs someone like Mike Holmgren to tell him what to do and what not to do, to not do stupid things.

First, I am a vikings fan and I would love to moon sixtythousand packer fans at one time grin.gif But come on all this talk that Farve is washed up and should quit is bogus. The man threw 30TD'S this year. I remember when 30 was an excellent number

Viking fan, RIGHT ON BROTHA!!

Sunny J, No one said he was washed up (I don't think) but my gosh can he ever perform under playoff pressure anymore?? I just got home and ESPN sports reporters were ripping him a new hide!! They said that since the Packers SB win that Mr. Favre has thrown 19 interceptions!!! NINETEEN DAWG!!! All I'm saying is that he definitely is on the way down.. you cannot argue this with a clear unbiased conscience! He forces so much and yes he gets lucky and sneaks alot into his WR's... I love his competitiveness and that he can have a normal conversation with the media.... but I'm guessing he may just pick this year to go out on his terms. (whatever they may be)

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
