      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 .

A win for the Vikings on FOX

Nice win again, defense.

But I wondered through the entire game; was the camera guy out drinking all night?

If not, I assure he will be tonight after he consoles himself after getting fired for not doing his job, which is to FOLLOW THE BALL!

Or was it just me watching guys who didn't have the ball run all over the field, and then have to hear what happened from hte announcers and wait for the replay from a different angle?

It's not good when the NFL camera man looks to guy in the stands above him and asks "Have you seen my baseball?"

LOL, I said the same thing in the "Monday Night" post. I've never seen such "fine" camera work.

Normally they do a really good job, but it's like they put their B team on this game, along with the commentators......just no good.

What the heck was Bill Maas talking about today? He sounded like Pat Summerall, rambling on about god knows what. The camera work was terrible as well. The camera man and Maas need to be punished. Maybe next week they can call the Packer game, that will show them.

Bill Maas was absolutely brutal today. He's easily one of the biggest meat-heads I've ever heard call a football game. One of my favorites from today...after the ruling in overtime that DelHomme's fumble was a forward pass (horrible call by the way) Maas says, "well it's really not going to matter much anyway, either way the Vikings will have great field position." What???? Having the ball on Carolina's 30 is the same as getting it on our own 20 after the punt???? Unbelievable.

I agree. We got the B team from fox today. The camera work, lack of replays, and boneheads on the mics, were all terrible. I hope these guys don't call the majority of our games this year on fox. If they do I may have to go with PA's call on KFAN along with the TV on mute.

As far as the vikes go, good game. Good play calling/coaching from Childress. It's nice to have a coach that can manage the clock, the tempo, and get his players rested at the right time. I don't miss Tice one bit. And after watching the hi-lites of the fins game I am soooo happy we went with Johnson over Pepper this year. I still think it will be tough to pass the bears up for the divisional title but a wild card birth looks very possible.

I got fed up and actually tried that, but I couldn't stand the delay. PA's call was about 4 seconds ahead of the TV crazy.gif

You get used to the delay.

Playcalling was o.k., that last drive in the 4th quarter was real ugly.

The fake FG though was sweet.

The $6.00 beers at the dome were not worth $6.00.

The defense was spectacular

I would like to see us play Carolina with Steve Smith in the lineup, doesnt look like Delhome knows what to do without him.

Here is the place to give Fox a nice ripping. Terrible camera work, and the announcers were even worse.

My personal favorite came late in the game after Smoot made a nice tackle and pushed the opponent out of bounds. Everyone at the game of course yelled "SMOOOOOOOOOT!!". Maas said the Vikings fans were booing because of the late hit out of bounds - while we were on defense. Yeah, we wanted a late hit called on us, because everyone knows how much the home crowd loves penalties. At least the other announcer corrected him by saying "Or maybe they're yelling SMOOOOOOT!!".....the few seconds of silence after that was golden.

I sent a couple of comments into Fox. The first one ripped apart the announcers. I think we could put together a better group in the booth from this website. grin.gif I can usually handle the bumbling idiots in the booth, but who in the heck was running the camera?? I KNOW I could do a better job. There must have been 8-10 plays were the QB, with the ball in his hands, wasn't even IN the picture. Plus, the camera guy was faked out 3-4 times. It was a very poor broadcast, period. I vented to Fox about the rookie camera person also.

Thanks Sandbar for the link . I ripped both the camera crew and the boneheads in the booth. I have followed the vikes for 30 some years but have never seen such horse@#%* camera work in my life.

I actually noticed the plays were off camera too. And it happened more than once. At first I thought my television wasn't wide enough. I don't have one of those fancy wide screen TV or HDTV yet. If it happens again this weekend I will be one to contact Fox as well.

      Sorry to hear. Being the guide-dad you want everyone to have fun. No fish on worms? Had to be the Eclipse!

      Trip didn't go as planned. I had been asking some questions on here to get some info/ideas for the trip. Greatly appreciated all the stuff you guys shared with me. Unfortunately most of it wasn't in the plans  Camped at fall lake, as this was the first time my wife tagged along in a few years, and I thought his would be the most family friendly. After getting setup on Sunday, I launched the boat and goofed around for a bit, but didn't catch anything. My daughter was using worms, and she didn't even get a nibble. Is there not much for bass in fall?   Monday we had to spend some unexpected time in town, making certain purchases. Made it to snowbank late. Trolled for lakers, but only marked ciscoes. Once we started fishing for bass, we caught a few, but then the rain fell. Had it just been me and the 2 older kids, we could have fished through it. But with my wife and the youngest, it wasn't going to happen!   Pretty much the same thing happened on Tuesday. Went to burntside, but the lake was too windy. Went back to town, let the kids play at the park, then had lunch at the boathouse (I highly recommend the motorboat burger). Then we decided to keep it close and simple, and went to miner's pit. Weather got the best of us again. At least this time, my wife caught a few fish. No trout though.   Sometimes there's more to camping trips than good fishing though. We still had lots of fun, and I'm already making some notes for my next Ely trip, which I don't even know when will happen.

      Tommy, can tell by your posts and photos that your dogs are very special to you and Bonnie.  I shed a tear or two while reading this.  I got a kick out of you telling me here after I saw you driving through Cloquet a couple years ago.  You saw my dog riding co-pilot and you mentioned that you also had a dog in the passenger seat (can't remember which one) and Bonnie in the back seat riding with the other dogs.  Good Stuff! Take care, Bill

      I pop in here a few times lately for some humor for myself, it is hard to do. No, very hard to do...but this sight makes me smile sometimes so here ya go...FYI.   Moe Rock passed August 14th  ~  4 days before what would have been his 11th birthday.
      He was our rock in many ways and was one of the smartest retrievers we have ever had in our family in 30 some years.
      If you knew Moe Rock you can understand, remember. He was so strong an fought the cancer just over FOUR MONTHS....
      Pills n tests an more pills an more tests...until well CANCER SUCKS.
      In the end the cancer wins no matter how hard he fought or how hard his TEAM fought with him and for him. Bonnie an I, the special vets an techs at Osceola Animal hospital and the top doc's, students and assistants and at the U of M vet center tried very hard and long to help him in his battle. He never changed, stood tall an strong, bright eyes an devilish smile.
      Truth is we only stayed a couple steps ahead of the cancer that took him that day at 5 PM.
      He was strong right up until he passed with Bonnie an myself holding his paws an making his passing go easy. Bother Polar Bear Boy looking on also.
      Don't make any of this easy saying this, but he was not doing good at 5 am Sunday morning as that cancer stuff just jumped him good this weekend an well,  he lost.
      We never gave in, nor did he. This weekend at the cabin he tried to enjoy himself, DID enjoy it all.  He swam, couple dock jumps, we fished morning runs an sunset, did boat rides, worked on some shore n boat small projects an ate pretty dang well. He was fine until bedtime when we knew an HE knew something was happening.
      Not good. CANCER SUCKS!
      We had a great time, Moe only showing to Bonnie an myself an his Brother Polar Bear Boy he was not feeling to good in the evenings the last week. Very sad. Never forget Moe Rock or his up north name of NoMoeToe given to him by long time guest in my boat from Capser Wyoming the late Mary Cob and his Chisago City area name the Fire Chief gave him of ThreeToeMoe. He was not only special to me but to a host of people in this area an on or around Lake Vermilion for his whole life.
      Good boy, darn good boy. One regret is not everyone that knows of Moe or knows him only online did not get to meet him in person.
      You would have enjoyed him in many ways as we all did.
      Loveable, big nut, sweet, smart, goofy, odd and a total tick that like to start fights with this brothers an then leave them to settle it while he went an ate their food or got best seat on casting deck my big black boat.
      Yup, Moe Rock was a Tick.   Any way....very sad are we, but he fought like tuff darts, a good long fight.
      Never whined a bit, did as was asked an stayed pretty much himself the whole time until that Sunday morning really.
      Not once showing anyone not in family he was sick, real sick. Still loved his truck rides, belly rubs, swimming his pool, wratling with me n Bear, watching TV, Playing on Kendel or computer with Bonnie an just plain being Moe to his brother Bear Boy...big smiles. Fishing, how he love3d fishen...mostly topwater of any kind, but he would go with me anytime, anytime....true fish hound was he, our sweet Moezy.
      I did not tell anyone about Moe rock but Mom Joanne as figured he might kick cancer to the curb an well..........
      Never gave up hope but most times cancer wins in retriever hounds, even our sweet Moe Rock.
      PEACE!
      Very Sad. Now running with his fellow Mallard Island Marauders that crossed over before him, Barney Toonder, Homer J., Bailey, Beckey, Buddy.....plus Jack n Ev the Kats.
      Some good party.....good food, big smiles and all that go with them....all very special. Lov ya Moe......I miss you my boy....rest easy until we meet again.   Keep on rocken!   Tommy

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em
