      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 .

I just want to say thank you to the GB Packers for everything you have done for us Viking fans in 2005. First off, you let us spank you in the playoffs at Lambeau... priceless! Then you continue on and let us break your fans hearts with two last second FG's! A tribute!!!

Congrats on the Vikes for yet again handing it to the Packers in the second half. As for the off season all I can say is "screw Reggie Bush!!" What the Packers need to be concerned about this off season in the draft and free agency is to bring in some defensive players who play with a lot of heart. That was about the most gutless performance of a defense I saw last night by the Pack in the second half. Heck the game shouldn't even had been tied at the end, before the field goal. For some reason, the ref called a phantom hold call on the 20+yard run Moore had on the gaping hole of the Packers D-Line. Guess we'll have to relagate to the role of spoiler. Maybe we can pull out a win or two against the Bears to help you guys out.

Hey Buzzsaw. Send me your email address I got a good Viking one for you, but can't really post it on the site.

Then the refs made another absolutely horrible call on the pass interference on Driver!! They showed that replay and Driver totally pushed off our d-back!! Both of those horsecrap calls set the packers up for the tying FG! Nice to be able to overcome those bad calls... they normally would crumble. Also, it was nice to hear both announcers say that holding call on Mewelede's 25 yard run was BAD!!!! amazing, they questioned the refs in the vikes favor... hmmmm it must be armageddon! grin.gif

Buzzsaw the officiating in Green Bay is often very much like the officiating in the shadows of "Touchdown Jesus" in South Bend, IN, but they like to call it "luck" there.

I'd say! I love it when a Bears fan can pile on in a Packers thread! grin.gif

Oh, I forgot one picture that will forever be engrained in my head... that was of the illustrious Mr. Favre about to cry at the end of the game last night....

Thats some funny shat right there, is it John Favre or Brett Madden?????? Im guessing as far as Madden has his nose glued to Bretts arse he gladly took his last name. Anyway, the beverages were good and the tenderloins even better, Im thihnking a few trades between the Bucks and the pack might help us out here.

FWIW, I am now pulling for the Packers to win a few games down the stretch...just so they don't have a shot at Reggie Bush. wink.gif If the Packers were to beat the Bears twice, well, so much the better.

And I thought that a dedication to their great season might inspire them to beat a way undermanned Eagle squad.... NOPE! Look out Houston, GB is on your heels for that #1 draft pick!!

Old Brett must not like his recievers very much. Every wr/te that has been hurt this year for GB got hurt going after a terrible brett Farve pass. Walker and Fergy were both leaping for overthrown balls and the Bubba pass was way left. My question is do packer fans actually think they can win with #4

The packers need to see what they can do in the fa market and see what they can mustard up. I enjoy the easy wins jk, but I would still rather have the Packers competing for the playoffs than the Bears.

As a Packers fan this year, I have grown particularily fond of having some adult beverages while just LISTENING to the television versus watching it, it seems to heal the pain a bit easier and its a great time to catch up on housework or dinner tongue.gif

      Here are some of the toads we have been catching on the Rum River this summer.  The biggest has been 19 1/4 inches.

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Did you find any? Let me know where you are located and contact info. Also what size is preferred?

      A popular method that I've seen is to use a slip bobber with minnows, leeches, or crawlers. Four-mile bar seems to be a popular destination but also try working along weed edges. You probably noticed the weedline is about 14' - 15' down so working those edges can be productive. Just my thoughts.
    • BobT
      The purpose for having fuses is to protect the wires and/or downstream devices from over-current situations. When an over-current situation exists the wires can be exposed to higher current than what they are rated to handle and the resulting heat will likely melt the insulation and possibly cause it to burst into flame, which can spread to an on-board fire destroying your boat and everything in it.  A fuse that repeatedly blows when replaced is a good indicator that there is a situation that needs to be resolved. You need to find out what is causing the over-current situation and resolve it. Putting in a higher rated fuse does NOT solve the problem. The wires are rated to a maximum current level and the over-sized fuse will allow excessive current to flow over the wires, which is no better than just getting rid of the fuses. Do not do this.

      Have a great retirement Ace. Really glad to hear you'll still stay on the forum!!

      When CigarGuy first showed up on these forums, I stopped by and introduced myself but I think that he was either on his dock or just hopping into the boat. I haven't visually seen him in a few years, but I did see the Mrs. Cigar Guy and another assembling a sitting bench earlier this summer! Some day I'll stop by to share a cocktail.   As for the people boating in close, here are my two Vermilion observations: 1) There are known spots on Vermilion. People go to those whether there are zero boats or ten boats there. If I am on a known spot, I don't get upset when others show up and fish close. If I am working a non-typical spot and others show up because they see you catch a fish, I do get a bit testy as well. 2) Navigation channels tend to hold fish, attracting boats that are fishing and boats that are moving. As a fisherman, I accept that people are going to boat close by in established navigation paths. I do get upset when people go through tight areas on plane or even just below it. I always try to follow a no-wake policy when going through tight areas such as Fectos or others. Our place is in Black Bay and the pinch between Black Bay and the Partridge River typically has boats. I'll come off plane and go nice and slow past boats. Treat others as you want to be treated. Preaching to the choir....I know
    • rundrave
      move back to SD and then buy the boat You dont need to drop $50k on a new boat just to enjoy the water. I have just as much fun fishing about of a super old $500 aluminum boat with a trolling motor as I do fishing in a fully decked out Ranger. There are of course pros and cons to each but you can fish out of both and that's all that matters. And nothing is better than getting away from shore fishing it just opens up so many more opportunities to catch fish.
