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.

Real Story- Moss' Mooning

Recommended Posts

JHansel7

Tony Dungy came on today and said that he actually chuckled at moss mooning the fans, the main reason is because after the visiting team loses at Lambeau, the fans stand there and moon you while you are boarding the bus, Dungy said that he wouldnt blame moss for doing it, have a sense of humor, i guess i dont think it was right, but it was funny!

i think everyone has heard this now about the packer fans mooning the loosing team, i find that hillarious ( and i hate the packers ) i find it even funnier that moss "mooned" them back, everyone get of Moss's back he was trying to have some fun in a high pressure game and he's addicted to the camara and the attention like we are addicted to fishing.

Notice they dont bring this up on ESPN or Fox sports they all talk about how tasteless this was but ESPN's pregame show depicted a man that looked like Brett Farve walking around GreenBay naked, I thought this was in nuch poorer taste than Moss' fake moon (which I thought was hilarious also)

I don't see the big deal. It was an imitation moon anyhow. Sounds like he'll end up getting a 5000 dollar fine outta it. I don't think he cares it's just more publicity.

Down to Earth

I think it was on Mike Morris's show this morning on KFAN they were refering to Moss and the Vikings as "Moonesota". Got a kick out of that one. As stated earlier, I was really all that offended on the action, though I thought it did lack the creativity of the Sharpie or the cell phone. Also on Morris's show they talked about how Moss's reputation preceeds him so of course whenever something like this happens it gets blown out of proportion, but the reason it does is due to things in the past. It unfortunate that the main talk about Moss is his Lambeau moon and not how he played hurt on a bum ankle in the 4th quarter only to burn Harris again for a TD.

Today on Paul Harvey News, as he ended his newscast, he spoke about Moss and how the NFL was pondering how to punish him, but he said while they are doing that President Bush had called Moss to be an ambassador from the US to France. grin.gif

This is on CNNSI.com today...

TV Commentator Awards

The best to the worst of the NFL announcing teams.....

Remember this past week with Joe Buck? Well so do the folks as SI!

Joe Buck, Cris Collinsworth, Troy Aikman, FOX -- I had been tracking a more or less gradual rise for Fox's No. 1 team, but now it drops from last year. Well, Buck, for one thing doesn't care about down and distance or accuracy in his play by play, or even mentioning who makes the tackle. Often I had to run the tape back, even after I'd seen the game, to find out what the defense was doing, because they cut away from the play so quickly without adequate explanation. Add to that the fact that nobody in the booth seems to know or care a hoot about line play. And add to that the fact that early in the season, they were just talking over the live action at times and not even describing it, which represents some some real arrogance. Thankfully that was corrected, but in its place was an occasional look through a weird camera they bragged about that brought you the game from a ground-level view -- way behind the action, as if you were seeing things from the worst seat in the house, row one, end zone. All this did was give me a headache, but not as bad as another gimmick they went with at the end of the season -- picking up the kickoff in progress, so poor old Z could not record his hang time.

So why aren't they even lower? Because these are bright guys who are OK when they're in their province, which is the passing game, and I had them at three stars, right until the Minnesota-Green Bay wild-card contest. That one dropped 'em. Brett Favre apologists abound, but when the guy screws it up, for God's sake say it, don't cop out every time. No interception was his fault; it was always the guy running the pattern. How about the one where he overthrew Javon Walker, and Collinsworth said Walker had screwed it up because he was supposed to run a flat pattern instead of going downfield? Uh, if Favre were expecting him to run to the flat, instead of downfield, he would have underthrown the ball, not overthrown it. And then when Favre pulled that weirdie at the end of the half, near the Vikings goal line, running three yards past the line and underhanding it to Walker in the end zone ... and drawing a penalty...and then laughing about it. We heard this from Collinsworth: "The funniest part was Walt Anderson, the referee, could barely make the call without laughing." Hey, I watched Anderson, too, and I didn't see the hint of a smile. And the guys on the Packers weren't laughing after Ryan Longwell missed the subsequent field goal. This is what is known as dishonest reporting. But when Randy Moss caught the fourth-quarter TD and treated the Packer crowd to a dry moon that lasted exactly one second, that's all, we had to listen to this blather from Buck, who got his panties all in a knot: "That is a disgusting act by Randy Moss and it's unfortunate that we had that on our air live." Well, if no one would get to see it, then how could you get anyone to agree with you, Joe Baby? But the thinking of a guy like this extends only so far.

I can say I've had it up to here with Moss debate. So much of this outrage seems so disingenious that it borders on silly. If the fickle Joe Buck, in his completely uninformed typical fashion, had not feigned outrage at his endzone celebration many people would have simply laughed it off.

Why is Joe Buck a complete knucklehead, along with the FOX crew? More on that buffoon in a minute. Everyone at Fox picked the Vikings to get trounced, and there they sat. Much egg on face. Thank God Randy Moss could save the day and let them focus on something other than their own vitriol hatred of the Vikings and their transparent worship of Favre and the terminally untalented Packers.

What should you know about the Moss incident? What should you know about who is a classless lot? The truth is, the Packers fans are the classless lot who started the whole mess. The whole tradition. Leave it to the drunk, cousin-hunting hillbillies to invent such a tradition: after every visit to Lambeau in which the Vikings lose, Packer fans line up outside the team bus and moon the team.

So, Moss had some fun with the fans. They understood, he understood. Joe Buck should go back to baseball and something he understands. Usually commentators are picked for their neutrality in games, but as usual with the Pack they simply can't do so. They must move every game to insure sufficient spotlight of the beam of faded glory always shines on FOX posterboy Brett Favre. This from the NETWORK which features the most classless programming that is slammed down the public's throats everyday which is FOX. I am regularly ashamed of FOX and the programming they produce as a very sad commentary on feeding off the lowest common denominator in society while simultaneously shrugging off standards and ethics. Ergo, I am less than surprised they found something to blow up and keep the media buzzing for the week.

Shine on, Moss, and the Vikings. It's beautiful to know the truth and see that the reflection each of those Packer fans saw on Randy's uniformed butt was their own reflection.

SKOL Vikes, and time to avenge the Eagles!

Today on Rush Limbaugh, I heard Brett Favre was spotted stealing Rush's prescription painkillers and then selling the extras to the film crew that has begun shooting the sequel to Deliverance in his hometown of Kiln, Mississippi... all in an attempt to make up for lost playoff money and to cover up the disappointing end to another season. tongue.giftongue.giftongue.giftongue.giftongue.gif

I wasnt aware that our "pro" athletes were supposed to be saints. Im sure all the players in greenbay are great individuals.(just like thier fans)((For you GB fans, thats called sarcasm))

Moss may be a crass individual, but he sure scores a lot of TD's against the fudgepackers.

31-17 Vikes.

C-ya next year, and have a nice offseason otto.

What people don't seem to what to realize is that he is now saying this stuff just to stir the pot. He truly doesn't care and if everyone wants to portray him as a classless jack$%&, then he will continue to be that. Is it the right way to handle it? No. Does he lack class? Sometimes. Is the NFL loaded with arrogant morons full of themselves? Many on every team. Randy is the one of the few who doesn't care or doesn't know to keep his mouth shut. Would he be saying any of this or would it be a issue if the whole world wouldn't have overreacted to his fake mooning? No.

I guess this is the whole thing about expecting athletes to be role models and behave differently than the rest of society. If some guy leaving the stadium that day pretended to pull his pants down would the people around him be offended? Most would not. If you were ticked off and somebody asked you how you felt, have you ever made a smart aleck comment that may have included a minor profanity? Most have. Why then is it such a big deal that a football player has done these things? Is it because it is on TV? Then don't put the mic in front of him, or if you do, don't freak out if he does exactly what you are hoping for. You know the cameras and media there to ask him that question weren't hoping for a "no comment" or "I am sorry for my actions". They got exactly what they wanted, so they can now hype up the story to a whole new level. There are worse things said on TV everynight. The media doesn't seem to have an issue with that.

So im watching sportscenter this morning and they give each playoff game about a minute of discussion. They talk about stuff concerning each game. Except of course the vikings and eagles. They discuss Moss's fine. GIVE IT A REST ESPN. What about Moss's status? What about how the defenses are gonna contain the opposition QB's? What about the 100 other things you could find too talk about that actually pertain too the game? Heres the real question i have too everyone reading this. Say the vikings win. What will FOX and ESPN talk about after the game. It sure as heck will not be the game. It will not be what the vikes did too win the game. Or the mistakes the eagles made too lose the game. No mention of the actual stars of the game whoever they may be. Its a guarantee that at least half the pregame talk on FOX concerning the vikes vs. eagles will not be about the game but about the fake moon. We will get too listen too Bradshaw run his mouth again. And IF the vikes win Bradshaw and Co. WILL find something too talk about besides the game. No credit on what the vikes did. Bradshaw will never give any credit too the vikes for anything unless Favre somehow is dressed in purple someday. But then again maybe not, his bias against the vikes may just be the one thing that overrides his intense love affair with Favre. No im sure Moss will do something, and if he didnt they will talk about the fake moon, the last :02 of the skins game, or maybe even find a reason too talk about squirting a ref 6 years ago. This will happen even if Moss catches 3 TD's and gives the footballs too 3 different kids in wheelchairs like he has done will every other TD (minus last weeks). They will never portray Moss in any kind of good light.

      A public meeting to discuss a draft transition plan for Hill Annex Mine State Park will take place Thursday, Nov. 30, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Calumet City Hall, 932 Gary St., Calumet. Legislation in 2017 guided five local partners (DNR, Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board, Itasca County, City of Calumet and the Western Mesabi Mine Planning Board) to work on an alternate operating model for local management and operation of the Hill Annex Mine. The work group has concluded that operation of the site as a park under any jurisdiction is extremely unlikely and is proposing a feasibility study to explore other local economic development opportunities that preserve the history of Hill Annex Mine, promote existing amenities along the Mesabi Trail, and better connect the cities of Calumet and Marble. At the public meeting, the work group will hold a facilitated discussion to review feedback on the draft project report. The report will be submitted to the 2018 Legislature. Interested members of the public are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I am a lazy angler, so winter fishing suits me fine.  I typically fish with pike suckers or chubs on a plain #6 hook 6" off the bottom, and do just fine on ice.  As they said, the best bite times are sunrise-10:30am and 3:00pm-sunset; although I do occasionally catch some in the middle of the day.  I have caught very few walleyes after dark.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources today released a new plan guiding management of the Sand Dunes State Forest near Zimmerman for the next five years. The revised operational plan arose from a series of meetings with local landowners, conservationists and others.  “After hearing stakeholder concerns about the original 2013 plan, we led an extensive public engagement process that informed this revised approach,” said Forrest Boe, director of the DNR Forestry Division. “The new plan does a good job of balancing a variety of values and interests.” The revised plan addresses stakeholder concerns about timber management, recreational opportunities, forestry roads, and School Trust land management, as well as addressing rare species management. The plan also addresses several specific concerns that arose during the public engagement process, such as aesthetic considerations related to timber harvests next to private lands, and tree management within the Ann Lake Campground. The operational plan is based in sound natural resource science and reflects the DNR’s goal of sustainable forest management for economic, environmental, and recreational benefits. The plan shortens the management timeframe from 50 years in the 2013 plan to 10 years. It also provides more direction related to recreation, School Trust lands, and forest roads. Science-based adaptive management tools will be used to inform decisions on restoring, protecting, and managing rare plants and wildlife. “The DNR will continue to engage with people interested in the Sand Dunes State Forest through regular updates and meetings,” Boe said. “We want to build on the relationships we’ve developed over the past year and a half.” Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, consists of about 6,000 acres that are owned and managed by the state. It features a variety of plant communities and landscapes—including pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna, and prairie. It is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. Located in Sherburne County about an hour northwest of the Twin Cities, it is the closest state forest to the Twin Cities metro area. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers, and others. The revised plan, along with further information about the public engagement process, can be found on the project website at mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes/index.html.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has issued its annual ice safety warning for lakes with winter aeration systems.  Aeration creates areas of thin ice and open water that are extremely hazardous to people and pets. Open water areas can shift or change shapes depending on weather conditions, and leaks may develop in airlines, creating other areas of weak ice or open water. The updated list of aerated lakes and more information is available at mndnr.gov/eco/lakeaeration. “We’re urging people to use caution anytime they venture onto lake ice, especially at night,” said Amanda Yourd, DNR hydrologist and aeration coordinator. “Extreme care should be taken on aerated lakes. Watch for the large orange and black warning signs at high use public accesses and the required thin ice signs around open water areas.” Aeration systems help prevent winterkill of fish populations by adding oxygen to the lake, and in certain situations to protect shorelines from ice damage. They are generally operated from the time the lakes freeze until the ice breaks up in the spring. About 280 lakes will have aeration systems operating on them this winter. Private hatchery operators also use aeration systems, usually on small lakes without public accesses. A permit from the DNR is required to install and operate an aeration system. Permit holders must publish public notices, post warning signs, and inspect the systems at least once every seven days. Liability insurance is generally required of private groups or citizens operating aeration systems in protected waters. Watch for notices in your local media identifying aerated lakes in your area. DNR staff ensure permittees comply with all requirements and regularly inspect systems for safety. Some municipalities may have ordinances that prohibit entering into the thin ice marked area and/or prohibit the night use of motorized vehicles on lakes with aeration systems in operation.  These local regulations are often posted at accesses where they apply. Questions concerning aeration or thin ice can be answered by calling a regional or area fisheries office or the Department of Natural Resources toll-free at 888-MINNDNR (888-646-6367).

      New definition of portable shelter expands types of structures needing to be licensed       Beginning this ice fishing season, anglers using a wheelhouse type of ice or dark-house shelter are required to purchase a license to place the shelter on the ice, even when occupying it.  A new definition for portable shelters has been provided in law, which states that a portable shelter is one that collapses, folds or is disassembled for transportation. “Wheeled fish houses, which formerly were considered portable – and thus excluded from licensing requirements for shelters – will now need to be licensed,” said Al Stevens, fisheries survey and systems consultant with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “In the past, anglers using wheelhouses could use them without shelter licenses as long as they were occupied, including overnight.” A shelter meeting the new definition of portable only needs a license when a person leaves it unattended, meaning they are farther than 200 feet from the shelter. The change pursued by the DNR and enabled by 2017 legislation accompanied hunting and angling fee increases. An annual resident shelter license is $16. A three-year license is $43. Owners of houses to be rented pay $31 annually or $88 for a three-year license. A valid license tag must be attached to the outside of the fish house in a readily visible location. On border waters, a shelter license is not required on the Minnesota side if the neighboring state doesn’t require a shelter license for its waters. To learn more about the fishing and hunting license dollars are spent, visit mndnr.gov/licensedollarsatwork. Shelter or fishing licenses can be purchased at DNR license agents across Minnesota, by phone at 888-665-4236 or online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      2 hours north of town is ready! Went a ways out drilling my way on two different lakes yesterday. 4 inches on one, 5 on the other, as far as I felt like walking. The 4 inch one was all 4, the 5 incher was 8 near shore and I U turned the car on ice when I left! This is going to be a very long 3 day week..

      I've experienced the same thing - V can be tricky through the ice. There's a ton of structure to choose from and you're pretty limited with how much you can move. We've had the most success just staking out a likely spot during primetime. Drill a bunch of holes and wait for the fish to move up. Tip-ups have helped to cover more ground and locate fish. Like Cliff said, bite windows are real short so you've gotta be out there when it's happening!
