      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 .

MJR,

If history repeats I think you can chalk up a loss at Chicago and the Giants and probably a split against GB. So your looking at 13-3. Good enough to win the NFC North by at least 4 games and maybe even home field through out the playoffs. shocked.gif

The Atlanta game also scares me. If it was a home game and all the fans could wear their RON MEXICO jerseys I think it would be a forsure win.

Ya I hate those Giants. We can't seem to beat the Rams ever either. I also think the you can't count on 2 wins from the Bears or Detroit anymore either.

This schedule looks a lot easier than last years but it is pretty hard to guess how any team is going to play from one year to the next.

I remmember them thinking they had a LOCK on the over/under win total on the Vikes it was like 8 1/2 in Vegas they were telling everyone to bet the farm.

They thought Vegas was stupid and had made a mistake and were going to pay dearly....lol

person I work with was out on Vegas 3 weeks ago and said the Vikes were 35-1 odd's to win the SB. I think that is kinda high. So I have another co-worker heading out there tonight so I gave him $60.00 tp put down on them, can only hope.

The Vikings are currently 29-1 to win the super bowl and 16-1 to win the NFC championship. Randy Moss and Dante Culpepper are both 16-1 to be the NFL MVP.

Personally, I'm waiting to see how much anamosity Sharper has built up in him. Can't wait for the Vikes/Pack games.

Sure, if we played Oakland this year or in the next years Moss will play his heart out to "show" the Vikes what they lost, but look at the overall picture. Moss would play hard against the Vikes like he always did against the Cowboys, but the rest of the season....my guess would be same old same old. A guy needs to change within to show results on the outside, and I don't see Moss changing for anyone. He's said it himself numerous times that he won't change. I'm glad he's gone.

As for Wisconsin....they must have the most shrinks in that state than any other. Everybody's delusional there about the Pack! At least Minnesotans can recognize and accept when we have a bad team!

There! That should get things heated up a bit!! smile.gif

Let's also not forget who will be throwing him the ball. He is a good receiver, but when Oakland can't get a running game going and Culpepper isn't throwing to him, the crybaby will emerge and his performance will reflect that.

I think you underestimating Collins ability and maybe over ratings Culpeppers impact on Moss. Moss has had success in Minnesota pretty much no matter who has been the QB. Remember a couple of years ago when Culpepper was out with the hurt back and Frerotte came in and did quite well throwing the ball to Moss. I know there were some Viking backers calling for Frerotte to become the starter. I think Collins is a better QB than Frerotte was or is. IF, and its probably a big IF, but IF Collins doesn't get hit with the injury bug, I don't think Moss will have a drop in his performance at all. He has an excellent complimentary receiver opposite of him in Porter and 2 other good WR in Curry and Gabriel. They did take steps in upgrading the running game with the addition of Jordan, so the running game shouldn't be all that bad. At least for next year I think he will be just fine.

Actually not all Packer fans are delutional. I think the big question marks in the NFC North are going to be the Bears and the Lions. I think everyone agrees that they are improving, but how much are we giving them credit for improving that is where the uncertainty lies. Minnesota has definately had a good off season on paper, so natually expectations will rise for them as well. I think this year we find out just how good a coach Tice is and also how good of a QB Culpepper is. As for the Pack I don't think they will be as good as last year, but I don't think they will come crumbling down as many are predicting. True we haven't had that great of an off season, but I don't think our losses will hurt as much as some are anticipating. With the way parity is in the NFL these days anything can happen. I just printed out the schedule for each NFC North team. I'll go through it and get prediction. One thing you won't get from me is automatic losses for all the Viking games just to get the pot stirring as was done in the Packer schedule thread.

Definately like the Matchups this better than last year for the NFC North. Here's what I came up with as far as how it all plays out.

Minnesota 10-6

Green Bay 8-8

Detroit 7-9

Chicago 5-11

I'm sure it will all be different from this though.

I hear ya on your predictions for the Pack. This year is no different than any other year for the border rivalry. Vikes fans are always high up on their team at the beginning but seemingly fade by about mid November. I guess if that is what you are used to it becomes routine.

The vikes definately have become much better on paper defensively but you sure don't know what can happen with injuries. It can all change very quickly.

Vikes fans would do their team a lot more good if they would just root for them a little, and not root against all the teams they don't want to win.

I guess I don't get to wrapped up in it cause I really don't have any control over how the Pack performs. But let me tell you if my boss gave me the next day off after every Pack win I'd screaming at the t.v like a drill sergeant at boot camp.

Now I'm sure some sure some Vikes fans will say something smart like "Don't expect too many days off this year" cause it's what I've come to expect.

Curry, Gabriel, Jordan? Never heard of them. And this running back "Jordan" is a very small part of the running game in Oakland. And I am not saying Culpepper is responsible for Moss's success, I am just saying Moss has had one of the best QB's in the league passing to him for the majority of his career, and that makes a difference. Moss is a great receiver, and maybe he will actually play hard this year with something to prove, but I doubt it. I understand your pain though regarding the Packer's, with their salary cap problems, senior citizen quarterback, fumbling running back, deteriorated offensive line and secondary, and seemingly no direction at all will make for a tough several years ahead for their fans. Oh well, you always can count on the Brewers to one up their horribilism(if that's even a word). All in fun.

Actually Curry and Gabriel are two young WR for the Raiders who should fit in well as a #3 and 4 wideout. Being a Fantasy Football Junkie these names are pretty familiar to me.

Now on your second point, since I am a Packer fan it is was a safe assumption on your part to think I'm a Brewers fan as well. Sorry to disappoint, but on the baseball side of things I root for the Twins. shocked.gif

Down to Earth,

You make it hard to believe in the Packer fan stereotype with your rational thinking but I still believe you are in the minority of those that wear Green and Gold. It is more fun that way. smile.gif Actually, you are probably one of the few consistently rational thinkers that frequent these threads form either side and I don't know how we can have any constructive, immature, irrational, unfocused, petty and bitter fueds with your kind of thinking. grin.gif

Nolte,

In your post where you referred to Vikes fans or the Vikes themselves you could place Pack fans or Packers and probably still be accurate.

Except of course the statement about improving on defense. wink.gifsmile.gif

It almost makes me throw up but Nolte has a good point. Alot of my fellow Vikings fans are TERRIBLE! Fair-weather fans! I went to the Giants game 2yrs ago and they were screaming for Frerotte after the 1st incompletion. It's the same way if I try to watch the game in a bar. They only see the bad and not the good.

Ron,

I think we all have our share of fair weather fans. We'll see just how dedicated the Packer fans are in a few years. I'm sure they'll still have sellouts at Lambeau, but Thompson and Sherman are going to have their work cut out for them once #4 retires. Also I believe Ahman Green will be a free agent after this year. If we lose both after this season it will definately turn into a rebuilding phase for the Pack.

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.
    • delcecchi
      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.
    • Wakemup
      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
    • leech~~
      Plus+1  The size seems to drop off late in the year. Last year bait shops I went to were selling Large as Jumbos and small as large!
    • RuddyDuck
      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.
    • gimruis
      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.
    • BringAnExtension
      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!
