      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 .

The best way to stop the bleeding is to grab a block of cheese and head to LOW this sunday to fish. Nibble on some cheese, drink some beer and jig your rods. Us Minnesota boys will be off the ice with our limits by then watching the Vikes dismantle the Eagles.

I was in a state of shock when the Vikes won, and I'm a Vikes fan! Would've bet good money that they would lose, but I'm glad they won, and that I had no takers on any wager!!!!

atta boy gripem&ripem. I loved that game. I loved Moss' mooning to those cheeseheads. I can't believe the announcers were so disgusted. Screw em. A fake mooning and they are upset, wouldn't even show it on sportscenter. But, they will show Jake Plummer flicking off the crowd, they show favre grabbing his crotch and telling the eagles to do you know what. But they can't give Favre enough love. On the highlights on ESPN they talked about Favre and please don't go out this way. The guy has been a choker for 5 years now and they still treat him like it was 10 years ago and he is a superstar. Are you guys fishing next weekend?? I think we are going up.

Hey Vikes fans, good game. Despite the previous mishaps this season, you came through when it counted. I still don't know if either of us will/could have made it anywhere with our defenses. Nevertheless, good luck and represent the NFC North.

As for me, I think the only thing that has a chance to "stop my bleeding" is a 10lb LOW Walter. I already tried the cheese and the beer. Neither worked.

Finally a Packer Fan that accepts defeat with a little class. I for one being a Viking fan hope that this is not the last of Brett Favre. He might not be the Favre of old but still more than capable of getting the job done. It was not the Packer offense that is killing them!! Go Vikes!

Yeah congrats on the big win. As far as a reply to your comment about chokers, how many superbowl rings does culpepper wear and your randy moss is just a really fast JERK. I dont blame anyone for not wanting to air ANY of his displays of idiocy, And that hair of his should be illegal.

If Daunte would have thrown that (I guess you could call it a pass????) people would be calling for his head. Hey MN fans we've got the best QB in the conference. Brett Favre (I'll admit, maybe the best ever) can be the worst QB in the league on any given Sunday. He's more hot/cold than the Vikings. I lost 36 bottles of beer betting on the Vikings over the Packers throughout the year, but the one time I didn't wager, I should have.

You have to bring up old s^%t don't you. Now I suppose you'll go back to the superbowls the meatpackers won in the stoneage and brag about those. Like I said in my earlier post. Favre had a couple great years. I like the way he plays the game. But he has been horrible the last 5 years or so in the playoffs....AND HE WAS REALLY BAD YESTERDAY. He isn't going to win anymore superbowls and the packers are going to make all of you cheeseheads remember the 80s again. Give Culpepper some time and he too will have some rings. As far as Moss, the only (Contact US Regarding This Word) reason you cheeseheads don't like him is because he's been rippin you guys apart for 6 years now. The media hates him cause Moss won't talk to them so they have to badmouth him all the time. As far as his mooning, I absolutely loved it. I don't want to hear how classless it was either. The story behind the whole deal is that some of your cheesehead buddys have been mooning the Vikings bus for years when they are leaving the great Lamblow field. Moss was giving a little of that back to them. Tony Dungy was on the radio this morning talking about it.

But it is nice to have the "old sh$t" to bring up, what do you have for superbowl memories other than blown playoff mishaps. Its obvious favre is and will always be a more accomplished quarterback than culpepper, so hes on a bad streak, SO WHAT, jump all over it, I dunt care cause in another week you will all be bashing your own team cause they blew it again and on and on and on for next hundred years. Blah Blah Blah, youll lose next week, and if they dont, theyll lose the next week, if I end up being wrong, good for you but ive got my money on not. smile.gif

Yeah, I agree that it would be nice to have a superbowl under our belt. But why don't we bring up the fact that in the only playoff meeting between our two teams the meatpackers are 0-1. The Vikes are 1-0. End of story. And no, Favre isn't better than Culpepper will ever be. Culpepper is well on his way to outdoing Favre. He will soon have the team to do it with. You guys are on the downturn. Who is going to run your team when Favre retires? Your D is as bad as ours was and your qb is on his last leg. Are star players are all 29 or younger. Like I said, get ready to remember the 80s buddy. Cause I do. The sacred grounds of Lamblow (where Moss mooned your drunk, orange clad fans)were like a wasteland. You couldn't fill that stadium for a Monday night game. Its all coming back real soon.

As a Vikings fan living in Packer territory I have to admit to loving yesterdays game!! I hear all the time...'you've never won the big one' to which I reply; we don't care if they win the big one. All we care is that they beat the packers! And that they did. Go Vikings.

Well said 12lb.

The Packers might have won a Super Bowl or two in the stone age and one in the '90s, but at least the Vikings have never taken an entire decade off.

My favorite part was when they wouldnt shut up about Moss no longer being a threat because of his ankle and he still scored on gb best cornerback.It shut them up at least.As far as the mooning it couldnt of happened at a better game I loved it.What more could you ask for limit of walleye sauger and perch and ending packers season.good luck fishing. grin.gif

Will someone refresh my memory. what was the score of the game on sunday, and who is playing this sunday? Bretts had his day...it has come and gone... the only frozen tundra or frozen anything that mattered was the cold, frozen stares of the packers players and fans as they watched their season slip away, at the hands of a better team. It was a beautiful thing.

Q. What's the difference between a Packer fan and a bucket of yak vomit?

A. The bucket

Just kidding, you guys got your two but we got the one that counted. What do you think of our defense now?

grip em and ripem. I gave the boy from the cities the ultimatem today. I don't think he's going to be heading up. Its too cold for him and he doesn't want to spend sunday driving back to the cities. He will let me know tonight if he plans on going or not this weekend. If he doesn't go I believe we will only have 3 in our house so if you'd like to go with us you are welcome to. Of course you know you'll need to bring plenty of $20s and your own 3 cases of beer. I think with this coldfront moving in we will need a lot of poker to keep us entertained.

Yeah, Im still trying to figure out what I should do. Ive got our house over at Springsteel and it sounds like the fishing was alright over there last weekend. I think going mobile and fishing over by Gull Rock is the way to go to catch fish. If I go with you guys I will make alot of money but will be hungover for 3 days after I get back. I have to go to Phoenix on monday morning and could use a little extra coin for the trip.

I second the notion that you'll be hung over for 3 days. But I have to disagree with the one about you taking our money. It is a proven fact that if I give you just a little Vodka that I can retire early. That is my plan. Feed you beer all day and give you a few vodkas at sundown and then just sit back and collect $20s all night. I kind of doubt that Corv will go but he is going to let me know tonight so I'll let you know ASAP

You were the one who wanted to bring up all the titles that GB has won. Since you were bringing up old sh%t I figured I'd bring up the fact that the Packers didn't win a division title betwenn 1973 and 1994, thats 20 years (or two decades for the packer fans). You guys had a nice team in 96 but the only reason you ended up winning it was because you brought some free agents that worked out perfectly for you. Favre was traded for, you bought Reggie White and Desmond Howard played out of his mind for a month (you bought him too). Favre WAS a great player for a couple of years. He hasn't been the same for about 6 or 7 years. Once he kicked his drug habit he had a couple of good years and he has been streaky ever since. He has been dreadful in the playoffs for the last 4 years. And about Daunte, he is way ahead of Favre at this point in his career. In 96 Favre had 39 TD's, guess how many Daunte had this year......thats right, 39. Daunte is only 27 years old right now. He can run better than most rb's in the league, Favre never did run. But anyhow I am done arguing with you on a fishing board. If you want to argue with me some more come to www.vikings.scout.com and my login is touchdowntommyk. I will argue Vikes vs.meatpackers with you all day there.

      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.

      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.
