      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 .

Is Moss going to hang it up.

Recommended Posts

Sounds to me like Moss is just getting sick of football. He says he never liked it anyway. He liked basketball better. I would not be surprised if he hangs it up in a year or two. Probably before Favre does, who knows.

Muskybuck... DROP THE CRACK PIPE, EASE AWAY FROM THE WATER BONG, STAY OFF ALL DRUGS AND GO ADMIT YOURSELF TO THE JOE BUCK SCHOOL OF SMART PEOPLE.

I'll make a side bet with you on your prediction...

You can stop denying the fact that Favre is going to retire sooner than you like... This should be a good thing if he tosses up 4 interceptions per game... maybe he can get fumbleitis boy Ahman Green to join him...

When has Moss hinted at retirement, which Favre has done repeatedly? Given Favre's horrible performances in the playoffs (the INT against Philly last year, the SIX interceptions against the Rams a few years ago, and last week's egg against the Vikings), his desire to quit is understandable. Moss, love him or hate him, is still at the peak of his skills, as his two TD performance against the Packers (on a bad ankle) last weekend showed.

Wishing something were true does not make it so. If it did, I would make a post titled "'eyehunter wins ten million dollars and marries Britney Spears." grin.gif

I just heard on ESPN that the packers are going to try and sign Ryan Leaf and if he shuts them down they'll go after Scott Mitchell.

Please tell me when Randy Moss kicked a man to death for welshing on a gambling debt, as Don King did in the fifties.

who knows when moss will retire- as a viking fan, who cares. what we should care about is: when will the vikes wake up and get rid of moss. either trade him or if you cannot get anything for him just release him. I would bet any of you moss lovers that as long as he is on the team we will not win the big one

Kev,

If you want to use that reasoning, then you can blame every player ever to don the purple.

I think our chances are better with him than without him.

Recievers like Moss are a dime a dozen. There is nothing special about him except the media hype that tried to make a hero out of him. I think they (media) have given up on him now too. He is just one of many good receivers. The Vikes would have no trouble replacing him with receivers wanting to come and play with Culpepper.

And what brand of crack are we smoking today?

Moss- average reciever, dime a dozen?

MB, I know you are just trying to get the fires going with comments like that...It worked on me, hope it does not work on others who may get a little more upset than I. grin.gif

He has talent but what does he do to the rest of the team. He tells a lineman that he does not care what he thinks? If you have ever been a part of a team you know that all it takes is one bad link to drag the rest down. Moss being the bad link. Again he has talent but it takes more than talent to win the big games

It does seem the media has given up on him. You hardly hear anything about anything he does.

Down to Earth

I don't think Moss will be going anywhere as he seems to be a favorite of McCombs. Though through what I've read a bit in the paper down here in Rochester there may be some rumblings within the organization both from a player and personnel perspective with the attitude that he needs to either get his head on straight or get rid of him and that Tice did say noone was untouchable as far as trade value goes. Not quite sure what kind of trade value he would bring for the Vikes. Tice is as much to blame as anyone as he seems to not hold any accountability with him. Linehan most likely will be gone, so it would be interesting to see how Moss would work with a new offensive coordinator. If the Vikes did end up trading Moss and were able to replace him with solid defensive players they probably would be better off. I think they played quite well during his absence this year with the loses blamed more on the defense than Moss not being in the lineup. Culpepper is the key to the Vikes offense not Moss.

Moss is definately one of the best receivers, no doubt. But he is easily replaced with another of the best receivers. To think the Vikes can not get along without him, I do not think is true. I think good receivers are the easiest of all the positions to get quality people in. One of the biggest problems the Vikes have right now is the idea that they can not get along with out Moss. That is one of the reasons Moss has such an attitude. Culpepper's the man!!

Q: Why doesn't Iowa have a professional football team?

Iowa Barnstormers Arena Football Team

Minnesota has a football team...remember the first week of the playoffs? Green Bay played them.

Musky I think you make some valid points about the vikes, we definately would have won more games with 3 quality defensemen and no Moss. Although I am not sure if Burleson was a legit reciever at the beginning of the year but he certainly is now. The defense definately lost us more games than Moss won, I still say keep him around and I don't think there is much of a choice. You will not be able to trade him with his salary and I just can't see the vikes letting him go. Say what you will about him I still think he is the best reciever in the game.

Looks like Reggie Fowler is stepping up to make an offer on the vikes, sounds like we will know in about 2 weeks if that is going to happen or not. Who knows if this will be better or worse than Red. Denny Hecker is going to be the figure head and they have financial backers out of NY. They are commited to leaving the team in MN so I guess that is good. But we will see if any of this actually happens.

Hopefully this pushes Taylor up to the plate.

That is a long way from your previous statement of "a dime a dozen". It would not be hard to sell me on trading him with high value defense. You say easily replaced with one of the best receivers. I can think of one, maybe, two that come close to replacing him and that is only if attitude is factored in. Was it the media hype that gave him the best stats of any receiver in the first six years of his career or was it the stats that created the hype? If anything, his attitude is what is "common" in the NFL, but we just get to see his because of his lack of concern about perception and his high profile.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
