      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 .

The anounces might have been wrong but I heard it was the first time favre has been shut out. I never thought I'd say this but I ALMOST feel sorry for packer fans. It's going to be a long year for them. Oh well should be 2 more wins for the queens.

I've always disliked the Packers as well and this will sound just as bad... I do feel bad for them, this has to be up there with all of the bad teams they fielded throughout the 70's and 80's. Tell me they couldn't use Sharper in that secondary... tongue.gif

Yeah, its not even hard or fun to tease the cheeseheads. Its gonna be another year of:

"Yeah, well how many rings do the Vikes have."

or

"Well, if the Vikes don't win the Superbowl, whats the difference?"

I also feel bad for them cheeseheads, they will have to resort to the same old lame comebacks they always use.

Couldn't have said it better mysef! It would just be nice to hear them say how bad they are again and admit it will be like the twenty plus years during the 70's, 80's and early nineties when they were the bottom feeders.

Thanks for all the sympathy guys. By the way you will not get a Super Bowl Trump card played by me. Got a chance to watch the game off and on a bit, and finally ended up turnin it off to get other stuff done after the 1st interception. Overall they just looked poor everywhere; running game, passing game, defense, special teams, they all just sucked. They were lucky to only lose 26-0. Looked through the play-by-play on NFL.com this morning and don't understand why after the second or even first Favre interception Rogers wasn't into the game. Did they just not want to expose him to the Bears, cause these are the perfect opportunities for them to use to get him into the game.

Hey Buzz,

what you sayin' 'bout 20yrs +? I'm new to this Pack/Vikes rivalry being from Chi-town and all, but here all I gotta do is say GB 3 rings vs CB's 1 ring. Is that what you mean?

But I will step up with Andy on this....GB will be bad all yr. Now, was Gato a flash in the pan or what?

DTE,

I watched it all and it was brutal. No coverage, no rush, no running game, one of the most prolific passers of all time and hardly any passes --- P..THETIC!

From the 2nd Bear drive when the Pack int in the end zone I thought they might do something, but when they lost a few inches when it was 4th and inches, I threw in the towel for hopes of any upset.

I don't think they are gonna bench Favre at home unless they can play the injury card.

Ummm, Geno/grasshopper, you must read the entire sentence... it was during a time period that I mentioned, the Packers fans have blocked this from their memory and I'm hear to remind them that they are back in those days.... get it my Cubbie lovin' friend?

Geno,

I don't have the 70's down due to age, but I think what Buzz is referring to are the days when the Packers had quarterbacks by the names of Lynn Dicky, David Whitehurst, Randy Wright, Rich Campbell and coaches like Starr, Gregg and Infante. Pretty much the whole Pre-Ron Wolf era.

So nobody had mentioned what I noticed while watching the end of the Bears/Packers blowout.... Brett favre left the field before the game was over - down the tunnel and didn't shake anybodys hands!! here's an article I read on ESPN that talks about the lil lady and the double standards.

Reader Kyle Kirchhevel of Jacksonville adds, "Brett Favre walked off Lambeau Field and up the tunnel before the game was over because his poor little ego couldn't handle shaking hands with the Bears who shut him out. When Randy Moss walked off a moment early in 2004 at Washington, he got incinerated by the sports press. Why is it OK for Favre to do what was wrong for Moss to do?" I did not see the ending of Packers-Bears -- it's hard to believe anyone but immediate family members was watching -- but if Favre did indeed walk off early to avoid shaking hands, he deserves a round of criticism. Favre is a first-ballot Hall of Famer, but he has been flattered too much by the sports media. Hard as it might seem for him to believe, the Packers' season is not about him personally.

Wonder what the cheeseheads have to say about their hero/god now? I'm certain there are some great excuses, lets hear them.

Of course he can leave early, he's Brett Favre. Brett Favre can do what ever he likes because he's Brett Favre and he's good and he's been with the pack forever and his wife had cancer and he gave money to katrina victims and most important, he's Brett Favre.

He has to go to the locker room early so he can get John Maddens head outta his butt before the rest of the fellers arrive.

Oh and a few more recent classic Favre quotes:

Maybe we just ain't very good," Favre said on Sunday night. "I don't know."

Favre, who spent months deliberating his football future before deciding to return to the Packers, isn't publicly questioning that decision.

But after being shut out for the first time in his 16-year NFL career, he knows a quick turnaround might not be possible.

"We've got a lot of football left that could be good or bad," Favre said. "So depending on how we play or how we handle it, I hope we win some ballgames here. I really do. Because it will be a long season. But if not, at least make it fun. Compete at a high level -- make some plays, go down swinging. Because it will be a long year if we don't."

That's a stark contrast to the things Favre said early in training camp, when he asserted that this was the most talented team he had ever played on -- even more talented than the team that won the 1997 Super Bowl.

"I caught a lot of heat for this earlier in training camp, but if you look at some of those guys, we were not overly talented," Favre said. "Now, I say that, and that was a long time ago, and maybe I have been hit in the head too many times."

Leaving BEFORE the game was over?? That is not good!

But not shaking hands I don't care about too much. I know these days all the kids do it after their baseball games, but even most of them are just going through the motions. It would be hard for me to act all cuddly-duddly after just trying to beat the heck out of the competition. I wouldn't expect it from my opponent especially at the pro-level. No need to be arse'oles, but no need to be kissy-face either. I see them all gather round each other at the end of the game and just know they're all out there making fun of the rest of us that are paying their million dollar salaries. I wonder how much prayin' they'd be doin' if they weren't so rich/overpaid --- no I don't, really.

Gotta keep it going!!!! FROM ESPN:

Brett Favre threw two more interceptions in Green Bay's shutout loss yesterday, giving him 257 for his career -- just 20 shy of George Blanda's all-time record. Will ESPN start running a Bonds-esque "Chasing Blanda" scroll at the bottom of the screen as Favre goes after -- and inevitably passes -- this historic mark? I have no idea, although they should. But I'd like to throw a bone to all of the Favre apologists out there. In order to prevent their hero from breaking Blanda's mark, I say Favre's picks no longer be recorded as interceptions. Instead, they shall be called "gunslings." It's simply disrespectful to say: "Brett Favre stinks. He threw five more interceptions last night." To me, this sounds much better: "Did you see Brett Favre throw five gunslings last night? Man, what a gunslinger. He threw them so hard directly into the defenders' hands that he made them bleed. No one throws gunslings like Brett Favre."

We actually have a tracker up at work with a countdown to Favre breaking the INT record. I'm getting nervous though that he might hang it up before it happens.

After watching the Raiders last night I think Pack/Raiders might be a decent game...

Not a good one, but it would just be another record held by a Packer Hall of Famer.

Let me see if I can Windyspin this one: most Int's means he must have played an awful lot of games. Oh yeah, that goes along with Most Consec Starts...., more MVP's than any VikesQB....nyuk nyuk

Yeah Buzz, so long as Madden isn't Editor in Chief, there'll be lots more written about him in his final hurrah.

(Kick 'em when they're down!!)

It's gonna be a long Packer season, so, I guess that means I'll turn into a Vikes rooter now, MAYBE.

      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. 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.

      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!!!
