      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 .

Todd Pinkston a viking

Just saw last night that the vikings signed him to a one year deal. Must be looking for depth at the WR position.

Great move.....not. Hopefully they do not put this guy into the starting lineup anytime soon. I like our starting 3. We need a number 1 reciever not a number 2-3, we have enough of those. Lots of cuts going on with players that would be better than Pinkston.

Yeah personally i kinda like that Carter guy(#11). Made some good cathes in the preseason and looked like he could be a legitimate #3 guy along with williamson.

I can't believe they let Carter go just to replace him with Pinkston. This guy was a young playmaker---something the Vikes need terribly. He was not bad at returning kickoffs and punts as well. Big mistake in my book.

Carter was undrafted; probably for a reason? Maybe.

Carter only had 4 catches; probably for a reason? Maybe.

Carters catches were longer throws; open for a reason? Defenses didn't respect him, and put the worst of the back-up cornerbacks on him? Maybe.

Did you see how accurate he ran routes when you detirmined this un-drafted rookie wearing #11 to be such a talent?

Did you monitor his breaks for precision and consistency throughout the pre-season and training camp?

Did you test him on his comprehension of play calls, and examine his work ethic, attitude, and demeanor on a daily basis?

Did you monitor him in team meetings, and and get a grasp on his overall knowledge of professional football?

Did he like fishing?

Did he like Cheetos?

Does he wear #11 because after 3 years he'd want to be paid more then any other poor decision maker with a bum knee in the league?

Answer these questions...

Looked like he could catch the ball (Carter), I want to see opinions on Pinkston, when we all see the alligator arms come out.

I agree. Just watch, a couple years from now Carter will be playing some incredible football for another team, and we'll be kicking ourselves in a @ss again because we passed on another prospect. Seems like the Vikes always do that... heck... I'd say it seems like all Pro MN teams do that grin.gif

The only thing Pinkston can do is go down the field in a straight line. He might not be able to do even that with his bum achilles. I wouldn't doubt if the Vikings actually end up letting him go in the next week or so. Seems like our coach is willing to give anyone he has coached before a chance. Nepotism anyone? Like someone previously mentioned, Carter would have been available to field punts and kickoffs. I also hear that we have signed Brooks Bollinger to a two year extension after only one practice. Why? This guy was was fourth on the Jets depth chart. Now that is scary.

Well, not so fast.

Jason Carter has been signed to the practice squad after clearing waivers.

A guy with that much speculated talent shouldn't have cleared waivers...

I'd expected the Packers to pick him up. After all, they are looking at Koren.

They're still upset over Darren Sharper though.

The Eagles have one of the worst WR core in the league and we pick up thier scraps????????

I'm not saying carter is the next, well, Cris Carter. But at least he is a warm body that could get some special teams use out of. I doubt Todd will play Sp. And I don't think he cracks our top 3 wr's. Soooo whats the point of getting him?

Same with the Jets. They have a starting QB that hasn't played a full season ever. They are a Horrible team offensively. Yet the Vikes think they can mold thier garbage into art. Nice work.

Big recievers are "IN". Carter isnt one. I like the kids talent but dont know eneough about him to say if it was a good thing or not. I cant believe he cleared and is on the practice squad. Maybe the Vikes pulled a quicky there?

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.
