      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 .

Fantasy Draft? Alexander or Tomlinson?

Who would you pick and why? It seems to be a toss up for most experts. Our league scores a point per reception also.

LT-- hands down. Why-- Seattle will be down (lost Hutchinson) and I think LT is the much better back anyway. He remids me of Barry Sanders-- and I can't think of another back I would want to be comapred to.

I'd also add Larry Johnson in the mix. One thing about LT is that Philip Rivers is the starting QB with not much experience in the NFL and when he did play last year he didn't look that good so LT might have a few less chances near the end zone. The loss of Steve Hutch is a big loss for Alexander but I don't think his numbers will be affected to much. If I had # 1 pick I'd take Larry.

I would probably take LJ as well. Although he lost his blocking full back and Roaf claims he is retiring so that might affect him some.

But he was unstopable at the end of last year. He carried my fantasy team.

They all have their question marks, but I really don't think you can go wrong with either of them.

LT-has a new QB, but everything else has remained. Have a pretty decent schedule.

Alex- Lost Hutch, but they play in a really weak division and even their our of division schedule is weak. I don't think he'll put up 28tds again, but I really don't see much of a drop off for him this season.

LJ- lost Roaf, his OC, and head coach. I know he was a stud last season, but that is a lot of change.

If it were me in a PPR league, I would go with LT, but like I said you really can't go wrong with any.

LJ is a good choice and so is LT but I would take Alexander the Great if I got the chance. Actually, i hope I get pick #3 that way I will get a better pick on the way back up.

If anyone can ruin a football team it's Herm Edwards. If I get 1st pick (again) this year, I'm going to think long and hard about LJ.

Alexander doesn't get as many catches and I heard they may TRY to pass more this year. Tough to say.

I had LT last year and while he didn't get the projected numbers, he alone won me a few games but wasn't the stud as thought. Shotty didn't call any pass plays to him early, and after a few games they included him in the passing game and SD started winning. For some reason they decided that wasn't any fun and quit passing to LT and started losing again. Go figure....

LT, they're a rushing offense and when they don't feel like rushing they just give it to LT anyway smile.gif

I somehow picked up LT on my FF team... so maybe I'm a little biased now wink.gif

Nobody runs the ball inside the 10 more than Seattle does. They may say they're going to pass more, but I can't believe they're going to change things up that much considering they went to the Super Bowl last year.

LT is probably the best all around player of the three, but he disappeared during the fantasy playoffs last year. The Chargers like that Turner guy as a backup and will probably spell LT more often to keep him fresh.

Seattle has a better overall offense and plays in a weak division. Then again, the last time LT had a rookie QB he caught 100 passes.

Just pray you get a top three pick and flip a coin.

Pray you get the #3 pick and your decision is made all the easier. Heck even at 4 I wouldn't be disappointed in taking either Barber or Portis.

Better yet hope for the last pick so you get two in a row. Ended up with Manning and Harrison one year. That was the year I won it all.

But top 3 for me would have to go like this:

Tomlinson

Alexander

Johnson

I would take LJ all the way #1. He is a stud, and averaged something like 150 yards per game when roaf was out last year. Roaf being gone hurts gonzo the most as he will do more blocking.

If you get points for receptions I would take LT with the second pick.

If no points for receptions I would take Alexander #2. One over looked theme is: he plays Arizona week 14 and San Fran week 15 thats almost a lock to get you to the championship game where he plays SAN Diego in week 16.

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and 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. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and 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.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.

      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!
