      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 .

Just scene it on ESPN Kessel signs 3 year deal. I'm a big gopher fan as big as they come and this hurts.

I saw the news this AM as well. Sorry Gopher fans. I'd rather see him play in the WCHA instead of the AHL if that's where he ends up. I feel sorry for him going to Boston, but maybe with the new regime things will change for the franchise. I guess this helps my 'Dogs though.

That's a great picture of him on ESPN.com. He looks like he needs to drop about 60 pounds. Actually, the picture reminds me of "Chunk" from the Gooney's movie.

He's still an ex-Gopher so I wish him the best of luck.

Lucia will have to go through his list of drafted players now and figure out who will fill his spot. grin.gif

What's up with Tyler Hersh (sp) coming back? I know he had a lot of points for the Gophers but I'm not sure about this move. Donny... Tyler's a little unstable don't you think?

Jay Barriball will do just fine for the Gophies. He's better than Kessel.

Barriball better than Kessel? I hope your joking! Barriball is pretty small and would be much better off going to junior hockey before playing for the Gophers. Good skilled player though.

I think Bariball is playing in the USHL for a year before the Gophers.

Hockey Guy,

Actually, Jay is my nephew. I know absolutely zippo about hockey. I just had respond as Lucia said Barriball is moving up. Yes, he is pretty small but he has made it through so far. He apparently is good if he's on the Gophers. To me, pretty much every Hockey player is the same. The team that gets the puck to richocet the right way wins.

I could be wrong, but this is the situation as I understand it: Jay Barriball played a few games last year in the USHL but was expected to be a full time player this year. He already committed to play college hockey at the University of Minnesota for the 2007-08 season. Since it looks like a jail break at the U with everyone leaving early, Barriball would be called up to start this year by Lucia. They would have liked Jay to have a full year of USHL before college but he is a top notch player and should do fine if he plays this year.

You are right. They really wanted him to go to USHL. Jay did spend last spring out there. Their plan was to ship him out there and put some meat on his bones and try to get him stronger. I guess that changed as so many players are leaving early. Jay's going to have keep his eye open for those big Canucks chasing him around.

Barriball's 11 points so far is more than Kessel could muster last year. Plus Barriball's not a cheesehead. The Bruins can keep Kessel...

      Are you out to add color or protect the wood or both? A natural oil sealer is something to consider -- it lets the beauty of the natural cedar show though and still protects the wood. You can also get the same type of "penetrating oil sealer" in colors. Hard finishes (varnish) may look tacky and will require re-sanding and finishing over time --while the oil sealers can be touched up annually with a new light coat without sanding -- a much more natural look. Go to a "real" paint store and talk to them about your project -- skip the Home Depots and Lowe's "advice"
    • Jennifer Dewitt
      you want a hard, fine-grained wood for carving lures. high quality wood so your hardware won't split the wood or so it won't soak up a lot of water then split. water WILL gain access to the wood no matter how good the paint. 
      and the acrylic is fine.

      I know this: you need to be on the water around 4:00am and the window of opportunity is small. When 6:00am rolls around, you should be done fishing for sturgeon.

      Is the canadian seal hunt still going on? if it is still on, does anyone know when it is supposed to commence this year? If any one have good idea please reply me with a quality comments.

      Was up this last weekend got out Saturday morning and Sunday morning.  The fish were biting very aggressively which made for a good time.  All fish from 14"-19".  No slot fish which was a surprise.  On a side note...  I've never had too much trouble with people honing in on where I am fishing.  But Sunday morning I started fishing this spot around 8am (which is late for me).  Nobody was around me and within an hour there had to of been six new boats around me.   I don't mind too much if your fishing an area by me but when you start trolling and drifting my same exact line I am???  Like do you want to hop in my boat and fish with me too?  Some people I tell ya..  Anyways get out there, the fish are biting.   Just remember there is 40,000 acres of water to fish out there.

      Ace, I've (along with countless others) have so appreciated your advice on this forum- your knowledge is invaluable. Can't thank you enough for being willing to share- that can be a rare thing these days!  I hope the retirement from guiding isn't also a retirement from posting  Take care and enjoy!

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.  
    • CigarGuy
      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?
