      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 .

Vikings-Eagles Predictions?

Recommended Posts

JIvers

How does everyone think the Vikings will do against the Eagles next Sunday? I was totally wrong (and glad of it!) about how the Vikings would do against the Packers today, so I hope I am wrong about the Philly game. For the record, I pick the Eagles 27-14--that is what my head says.

Who cares! We beat the packers! smile.gif

Honestly, with the way the Vikings ended the season, this win made the season. Any other wins are just icing on the cake.

Right now, I hope Taylor buys the Vikings, Vikings get a new stadium, Vikings spend some money on FA's, the young LB's progress and next year they are a dominant team.

Ok, that's a bit to ask for. =)

24-14 vikings win.

I would have to agree with kylersek that knocking the Packers out of the playoffs is definately the win of the season.

If Moss isn't hurt too bad and the Vikes can play defense they can win this game. Take away Daunte's fumble on the 1" line and T.O's non-catch touchdown that wasn't reviewed and we were basically tied early in the year with this team. They are banged up too and not the team they were then...

PREDICTION:

Vikings:24

Eagles: 17

Packers: Watching from their couches!!!!!! tongue.gif

As much as I would like to see the Vikes pull it together and dominate the playoffs, history will dictate otherwise. I'm picking the Eagles by 2+ touchdowns. frown.gif

It's kind of hard to forget the second half of the season.

I am with you Tonka Boy. If they can do it one more week I may start believing they have it figured out. I will be rooting for them regardless.

Otto, come on now, stop with all that bandwagon balony. No more sour grapes from you, just convert over from the dark side already! You know you can think your team is not going to win a game but still route for them and when they win you can still be happy about it without being called bandwagon. I see a Vikings payback at Atlanta in two weeks! shocked.gif

Those defunct players put a whoopin on your boys like I haven't seen since grade school. At least the defunct players showed up for the game, couldn't hardly hear the crowd except for during the moment of silence for Reggie White. Wear what you want, we'll do the same.

Enjoy critisizing the vikes during the playoffs. We enjoy putting your heroes out of them.

If he cares so much, why didn't he put his head down and go for the first down instead of taking a penalty he knew he would get and then laugh about it. I respect Farve and his abilities. That play did not go with his tough guy history. If I was his teamate, I would be rather ticked off that he took the easy way out on that one. Since the Pack was getting the ball back after the half they would have had a chance for the lead and would have taken control of the game.

Down to Earth

Really having a hard time predicting a score with this, with so many things to consider. I really don't think it will be a high scoring game. Eagles have no TO and haven't played game with their starters in 4 weeks come game time. Vikes come in off a huge win at Lambeau(is there a let down effect in that the Vikes had their "Super Bowl" last week), and also injuries to Moss and Williams. Eagles a lot better on D than the Pack, and Minnesota D actually playing a very good game last week. I think it will come down to a battle of the field goal kickers. I know Minnesota and their fans are pretty confident after this past week, but I'm not convinced quite yet that they can have a repeat performance against a better team, even without TO. Hate to say it for all you Viking fans, but I'm going with...

Eagles 19

Vikings 13

Hopefully they will prove me wrong for the sake of all you Viking fans. I will be rooting for the Vikes. If the Packers can't make it, I'd just as soon see fellow NFC North team move on. Just think...IF St. Louis knocks off Atlanta on Saturday, Minnesota will know going into the Eagles game they are playing for the opportunity to host the NFC Championship Game.

      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.
