      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 .

Anyone around this forum playing highschool ball this year?

Or any parents of players or fans?

Who are you following and how are they doing?

I play for New Ulm Cathedral, were 3-0 coming off a 14-7 win over the defending state champs of Class A Springfeild Tigers, by far the hardest hitting and hard fought game by both sides that I've ever played in. Heading up to Wabasso this week..........

Nope. Too old to be in HS, too young to have kids in it. However, we did play your school "back in the day". GFW was always a very tough rivalry of ours. I was a junior when they went to state and won it. They kicked our tails 59-0 that year. Of course, it didn't help any when one of our own guys took out two of our best linemen that year either. smirk.gif

You guys play against GFW at all? They still tough to beat?

Not a player but I follow our local team quite a bit!

2005 State 3A CHAMPS BECKER BULLDOGS!

Started the year playing National power Rockhurst Accademy and lost 28-14, was a really physical game that changed when we scored to make it 14-21 and recovered the on side kick with 9 Min in the 4th. But Shane Potter (Gopher Recruit) had torn his ACL on the 2nd touchdown and without him we couldn't punch it in.

Week 2 we beat a tough Cambridge Isanti team 14-7 to start off the conference and have not had a tough game since. Without Potter we are not a Top 10 team (any class) in the state but I still think we are the top one/two in 3A. Glencoe and Becker have some history over the past few years and it looks like them and us coming down to the end again. At least IMO.

He is a nice guy. My partner in the law firm here is actually friends with one of Ed's partners in their firm in AZ (The guy was originally from around here). Ed will send emails to this partners buddies answering questions about calls and explaining things a couple times during the year. My partner then always forwards them to me to let me read them. We almost always get one after he's done a Vikings game, they are very interesting to read!

Earlier this month I watched Cretin Derham Hall(4-0) defeat Wayzata another metro powerhouse, 42-14 on Fox Sports Net(FSN) The score at halftime was 28-0 and at one point it was 42-0. CDH wide reciever Michael Floyd caught 10 passes for 173 yards and 4 TD's. Other 5A metro teams that look good so far that I know of are: Lakeville South (4-0) Farmington with a good D, strong offensive line and running game are at (4-0). Tartan(4-0), Eastview(3-1). In 4A I like Northfield and 3A DeLasalle (Mpls)

My son plays D-line for White Bear Lake and has so since he was a soph. They have a big game agianst Roseville this week and then the Cretin juggernaut next week. Last year we beat Cretin on our field in a game they did not play well in. Could be a different story this year. Cretin is rolling and I would assume has a point to make against our poor little Bears!!! In my opinion Cretin is the #1 team in the state and we are looking forward to the matchup.

I'll be hunting and not in Proctor watching the Falls-Proctor 7AAA championship game. Falls has a kid, Deangelo Brakins, who has scored 15-16 TDs in the past three weeks, including rushing, receptions, kickoff, punt and interception returns.

White Bear is still in it. Playing Roseville Friday at WB Stadium. Last matchup WB won 17-0 holding Roseville to 50 something yards of total offense. I don't expect that again as Roseville is playing better ball. Suburban East has 3 teams alive with Stillwater, Cretin and White Bear.

We (NU Cathedral) won tonight at Loyola, 21-14, trailed 14-7 at halftime, came out in the second half and controled the ball the whole half, never threw the ball once in the second half, racked up yards on the ground.

Southern MN confrence is making another strong showing in the class A state tourney, two years in a row with 3 teams out of 8 coming from our confrence. This year its Springfeild, Wabasso, and us. We have a chance to be possibly playing in a rematch for the state championship in 3 weeks.

For the record we handing Springfeild their only loss in 2 years in week 3 14-7 and then threw one away at Wabasso 12-6 the next week.

Mark13:33 where are you coaching at? I might have a few names for you and a question or two, shoot me an email at nick_domeier@hotmail.com

Anyone still playing after tonight? Who had games pushed back because of weather?

We played on the frozen tundra tonight in Goodhue, won the game 19-14 scored 3 times in the 2nd quarter, dominated the line of scrimmage tonight, controled the ball in the second half even though we did not score. On to the DOME.

I'd love to see Springfeild win one tomorrow against Rushford, put three teams from the same confrence in the semi finals.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!

      Duck hunting is expected to be good when Minnesota’s regular waterfowl season opens a half-hour before sunrise on Saturday, Sept. 23. “The number of breeding ducks in Minnesota and North America has been good in recent years, so we’re optimistic that will result in a good duck season,” said Steve Cordts, waterfowl specialist with the Department of Natural Resources. “Wetland habitat conditions and wild rice lakes are in pretty good shape.  Canada goose populations remain high as well, so there’s lots of opportunity to hunt geese this fall.” Duck seasons and limits
      The duck season structure is similar to recent years. The waterfowl seasons are based on a federal framework that applies to all states in the Mississippi Flyway. Waterfowl hunting regulations are available wherever DNR licenses are sold and online at mndnr.gov/regulations/hunting. Duck season will be open for 60 days in each of the three waterfowl zones: In the north zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Tuesday, Nov. 21. In the central zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 1, closes for five days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 7, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 26. In the south zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Oct. 1, closes for 12 days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 14, and runs through Sunday, Dec. 3. The daily duck bag limit remains six per day. The mallard bag limit remains four per day, including no more than two hen mallards. The daily bag limits are three for wood duck and scaup; and two for redheads, canvasbacks and black ducks and one for pintails. The DNR will post a weekly waterfowl migration report each week during the duck season. The reports are typically posted on Thursday afternoon at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl. Goose and sandhill crane seasons
      Minnesota’s goose season will reopen in conjunction with the duck season statewide on Sept. 23, with a bag limit of three dark geese per day the entire season. “Dark” geese include Canada geese, white-fronted geese and brant. The daily bag limit for light geese is 20. “Light geese” include snow, blue and Ross’s geese.  Goose season will be closed in the central and south duck zones when duck season is closed. The season for sandhill cranes remains open through Sunday, Oct. 22 in the northwest goose and sandhill crane zone only. The daily bag limit will be one sandhill crane per day. A $3 sandhill crane permit is required in addition to a small game hunting license. More information on duck, goose, sandhill crane and other migratory bird hunting is available in the 2017 Minnesota Waterfowl Hunting Regulations booklet from license vendors and online at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl.

      Citizens interested in volunteering to discuss Lake of the Woods fish and habitat can apply to participate in the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Applications must be completed by Monday, Oct. 10, and are available online at mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. “Input provided by this group will be used to update the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan for 2018 to 2023,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette area fisheries supervisor. “Volunteers will give valuable stakeholder perspectives regarding important fisheries and habitat protection strategies for Lake of the Woods and the surrounding watershed,” Talmage said. Group members will meet five or six times between December and May to cover topics including walleye and sauger management, sportfish population objectives, habitat priorities and invasive species. Talmage said protecting the high quality resources within Lake of the Woods is important. “While walleye in Lake of the Woods are a big focus of the DNR’s management efforts, the lake also offers a wide range of fishing and other recreational opportunities that are vital to local communities, important to northern Minnesota and of significant value statewide,” Talmage said. For additional information on the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group and the self-nomination process, contact the DNR Baudette area fisheries office, 218-634-2522.

      Frozen mid-step in the woods, trying to remain undetected in pursuit of squirrels or rabbits – while the pose may seem like yoga, it’s often part of hunting small game. Yet those careful and deliberate movements of yoga do have some parallels with how a hunter learns to move through the woods, and teaching the basics through small game hunting is the focus of Take a Kid Hunting Weekend this Saturday, Sept. 23, and Sunday, Sept. 24. During the weekend, adult Minnesota residents accompanied by a youth younger than age 16 can hunt small game without a license, but must comply with open seasons, limits and other regulations, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “Small game hunting is an excellent way to introduce youth to hunting,” said Mike Kurre, DNR mentoring program coordinator. “Starting out pursuing squirrels or rabbits builds essential skills used later on for hunting big game like deer. And for someone new to hunting, it can be a lot of fun.” Adults can help youth have a good experience by listening to what youth need, and together they can learn the lessons of the forests and fields, added Kurre. “We encourage adults to keep on mentoring young hunters after this weekend concludes, because often that’s what will keep them going back year after year,” Kurre said.

      Recreational netting for whitefish-tullibee opens on Friday, Oct. 13, on designated lakes that are less susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperature, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. A $10 license is needed to sport gillnet tullibee or whitefish. The season is open to Minnesota residents only. These lakes, known as Schedule II lakes, offer recreational netting on the following schedule: Schedule II A lakes open Friday, Oct. 13, and close Sunday, Dec. 3. Schedule II B lakes open Friday, Nov. 3, and close Sunday, Dec. 10. Schedule II C lakes open Friday, Nov. 10, and close Sunday, Dec. 10. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to factors that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. The DNR recommends drying nets for 10 days or freezing for two days before moving a net to a new lake, or netting only one lake in a season. Netting in infested waters may be restricted or closed to sport netting of whitefish and tullibee. See the fishing regulations for list of infested waters or online at mndnr.gov/invasives/ais/infested.html. A complete list of all Schedule I and II lakes, status of the seasonal openings and closures, as well as detailed netting regulations are available online at mndnr.gov/regulations/fishing or by calling the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 in the Twin Cities or 888-646-6367 in greater Minnesota. About 700 people obtain permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning. Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Minnesota law restricts the size of the net and its openings; requires that netting be done in water not deeper than 6 feet unless specifically authorized; stipulates that netted fish cannot be sold; and requires that any game fish caught must be immediately returned to the lake. State law also limits net size to 100 feet long and 3 feet deep; allows one person to use no more than one net; and forbids recreational netters from possessing angling equipment when netting whitefish-tullibee. Whitefish and tullibee harvested during the sport gillnetting season cannot be used for bait. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
