      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 .

Notre Dame v. Georgia Tech

Recommended Posts

Matt Johnson

Anyone watch this game the other day? It was quite the game.

Calvin Johnson from Georgia Tech is going to go top three in next year's NFL draft, this guy can play! 6-5, 238 pounds and runs a sub 4.4 40 and has a 45 inch vertical! Talk about a dominating force. A guy that size who can break away from the D and make open field plays.

And then you have Tashard Choice who transfered from Oklahoma to Georgia Tech and runs the ball like he's playing backyard football with friends. A huge pick-up for Georgia Tech.

Although not rated, Georgia Tech is going to turn a lot of heads this season. Losing 10-14 to Notre Dame shouldn't be considered as something negative. Georgia Tech was the better team, Notre Dame got a few weak calls because they're the #2 and they deserved to get beat. Just goes to show you that playing tough D, even when you're overall play is horrible, can still win you football games.

Keep an eye on Calvin Johnson though, he had good seasons in the past, but this year he's twice the player...

lots of luck

Matt,

I watched the game also.

I watched a pretty poorly played game in many ways, but it was a first game of the season scenario, so there was a little rust.

But when it comes down too it Notre Dame beat a non Top 25 team that I believe lost 3 of 4 to end the season last year.

After that performance I question the #2 ranking. I always question the early season rankings for a lot of teams.

Why did GT go away from that stud receiver?? He was a man among boys on the field, very odd.

With the #4 pick in the 2007 draft the Green Bay Packers select Calvin Johnson, Wide Receiver out of Georgia Tech.

The bad news is with this pick Favre decides to play one more year.

The good news it will give A. Rogers a nice Jennings & Johnson combo for years to come.

More like: with the number two pick in the 2007 NFL draft the GB Packers select Brady Quinn.... still can't believe they drafted Rodgers.... if only Favre hadn't mislead that team they could have been something or so the Packer faithful believe. It's back to the 80's for that Packers team... 3 - 13, 4 - 12, 5 - 11 type of deal.... ahhh, the good old days are back. tongue.gif

Buzzsaw,

I looked through the schedule and I think we can at least pull 5 wins out. I'd put the optimistic number out there, but you know I'm more of a realist, even when it comes to the Packers. Besides, If Quinn has the year like all are predicting he will most likely be the #1 pick overall, and I don't think they would take Quinn with Rogers in the mix at #2 if that is indeed where they pick. Remember they passed on Leinart this year, and I believe they would have done so even if Favre didn't return. You take Quinn of the board and that leaves the Packers with 3 stud RB to choose from plus Johnson.

I will agree with you though I did not like the Rogers pick at the time as the had many more needs to fill rather than future QB. Only time will tell I guess whether it was the right pick.

Here's to the Packers starting of 1-0 this weekend.

I got them beating New Orleans, New York Jets, Detroit at home and San Fran on the road, though I think the 49ers will be quite improved from last year. I also think they may be able to pull off a win they aren't expected to, so I will take the Bears at home for that. Realistically I say 5-11, pessimistically I say 3-13. Optimistically I would say 9-7 best case scenario. Guess time will come. Is it Sunday yet?

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
    • Bigfatbert
      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!
