      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 .

What was the deal with the Vikings yesterday?

Down to Earth

Didn't get a chance to watch or even listen to much the game yesterday as I was supporting my wife in the Twin Cities Marathon. After the were able to win on the road in Washington, I thought the Vikes would have won yesterday. Offense? Defense? Coaching?

I'll probably get lambasted for this..but I thought Brad Johnson played horrible yesterday. The O line for as much as they are making should be able to open up slightly larger holes for the backs to run through. The Defence I thought did fine.. it was on Brad in my opinion.. to many throws to the other team, and too many into line mens hands.

Yes he wasn't sharp. He can't throw a long ball and then when he does get one close at the end Robinson can't make the catch. Also Childress' play calling on that last drive was HORRIBLE as was Brad's decision to pass into the middle of the field with time running out and no time outs. They never took one shot to the endzone on the last drive from the what 35-40 yard line???

Just not a good offense on this team. The line isn't getting it done at all as Dietz said...NO running game to support the pass and no passing to support the run. BAD combination.

I think Brad has played better games, but he laid out some pretty nice passes to receivers who can't catch the ball. Williamson was worthless yesterday, he couldn't catch the ball if his life depended on it. And Robinson missed a possible game-winning catch that was practically set in his hands on the last drive of the game. Both of Brads interceptions were just dumb luck. The 2nd interception he threw was a darn nice play by the Bills defense... there's not many receivers in the league that can even make a catch like that smile.gif

A lot of it had to do with our play calling in my opinion. 3rd and 14 and we run the ball... 3rd and 11 and we run the ball... I don't get it.

I give the Vikes defense a pat on the back, as they played well. Our defense is the only stabilizer for us right now, our offense doesn't seem to be performing...

I was thinking we should trade for London Fletcher in the offseason. He could work with our receivers and teach them how to catch a ball, since it's becoming quite obvious that none of our current receivers can.

You would think that the ability to catch the football would be a requirement for a first-round draft pick making $13.3 million in guaranteed money over 5 years, especially if that player happened to play wide receiver.

Ya cuz I'm like half their speed and pretty much suck at catching a football. However, I'd be willing to play for 3 mil a year.

Play calling was brutal again. Recievers stink it up again and the "O" line really stinks. This team could easily be 4 and 0 right now. Oh well I am just too used to it. Gotta like the defense though.

This team should lite the lions up like a x-mas tree.

I HOPE!!!!!!!!

GOOOOOOOOOOOO VIKKKKKKKKKKKESSSS

I'm not a Brad hater, but I think it would interesting to see how Jackson could do with the first team. Don't get me wrong Johnson is a good qb, but all the things that Jackson could bring to the offense...Interesting!!! wink.gif

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8
