      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 .

New Jerseys are UGLY!!!

Recommended Posts

I saw the new jerseys when they came out this spring and thought they were OK. A little too busy for me but not as bad as they could have been. At least they left the horns on the helmet. But catching them in action for the first time last night in the first pre season game I thought they were some of the worst in the league!!! The biggest problem for me is the purple color they chose. What happened to the dark royal purple from the 60s 70s and 80s???? It was almost a navy blue back then. This new brighter, lighter purple SUCKS!!! They look like a bunch of lilacs running around out there. If it were up to me we would go back to the 60s look with purple pants on the road. I can't believe the number of the teams that have ruined the look of their jerseys. (Broncos, Bills, Bengals, Cardinals, Lions, Seahawks) There have been a few that have improved (Giants, Rams, Bucs) but I just hate when they throw all of the tradition out the window just to sell jerseys to all the fans that have to have the new one.

While I'm ranting, what's up with our field turf? It looks brown. The end zone writing is crap too. You can hardly read it. Why not put Minnesota in one EZ and Vikings in the other so the letters can be visible instead of cramming both into each EZ??? I swear the Vikings are trying to make the dome look as junky as possible just to get us to build them a new one.

The turf is going to look awkward during preseason. I'm sure they haven't taken out all the kinks yet because of baseball. They probably just slapped something together so they don't have to work as hard when the Twins have their next game...

Look at the bright side. Almost every team that changed their long-standing jersey went on to either play in or win the Superbowl for the first time: Buc's, Bronco's, Rams, Seahawks

I can tell you one jersey I wouldn't go with. # 81 What a loser. Maybe they didn't give him enough money. Glad there are kids that pay attention to football and have heros hopefully none for this clown. Sorry to get off the subject here, I do like the new look too.

You know maybe the new owner and coaches have to make examples of this team. If your going to act like teen-agers so be it. Bring on the baby sitters. I have five girls of my own and can find time during the football season to be a baby sitter/taxi driver. Heck I would do it just for free tickets!!! Maybe the owner should just buy a bus and shuttle the boys back and forth to the bars. No wait then we would end up having the "Love Bus scandles". I sure wish I made 1/2 the money some of these football players make. Abviouslly these player think they are better then most people and the laws of America don't apply to their calibur of talent. Like I said in an earlier post some of these guys are just great role models for our kids growing up. I believe there shouldn't be three chances given to a star role model. What a joke. Hey Koren maybe the CFL will be looking for your top talent. You and the wiz kid can be roomys. Bring back Moss maybe he has grown up enough and has leared from his mistakes.

I agree about the home jerseys. I hate the new purple, too many colors on the jersey. The pants I hate the purple swoop. Only thing they did right on is purple pants on the road.

Sorry, but watching the game last night I though those purple pants were the ugliest thing I've seen in a long time....

I don't care for the new jerseys...kind of ugly, I think. Maybe they'll grow on me. I'll give 'em a chance.

I always liked the all-white road uniforms...the white pants with the white jerseys looked good. I think the Vikes and the Chiefs were the last teams to have all-white road uniforms. Shame to be going away from that. The purple pants suck.

After seeing the road whites I like them better then the old unis. I think they should go with the roads at home too like the cowboys, redskins, and panthers.

No -- they need to stick with purple at home. Nice to have a little color out there.

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
