      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 .

Was it just me or did anyone else see the similarities between Grossman and Favre again last night? laugh.gif

Where is Madden when you need him?

I bet Grossman would love to be a superbowl champ, 3 time MVP and on top or near the top in just about all the QB records. grin.gif

It didn't just start last night. Grossman throws into double coverage on a continuous basis. Up until recently the Bears receivers came down with the ball. The Cards have a few good DBs and it was a different story. Grossman looked like one of the greatest QBs of all time for a month. Farve does that too for a few weeks. Then he throws four picks the next week.

Alrighty then, who'd we rather have QB for this Bears team .... a young-Rex or an OTH-Brett?

i am feeling you dude. i dont care what anyone says Favre is a STUD. to still be able to throw for 3,000 yrds a season is very good for how old he is. we will see him back next year to take out a few of Marino's records grin.gif

Kind of funny I just had lunch with my brother and we talked about the superbowl and he said "Grossman is kind of like what Favre has become, he just kind of throws it up whereever and sees what happens...". Of course this was due to Favre having no players and diminishing skills and Grossman just being rotten!

i think grossman will learn to be a good one, like favre.

i was looking at his numbers, and he really didn't have too bad a game. one dumb throw and one that was underthown. other than that he was 20-28(manning 25-38) i think that lovie deserves some credit for the loss. thomas had like 115 with less than 20 carries. perhaps if he had 10 or so more touches, who knows cool.gif

lets not forget that the colts took mcnair and brady(for a half) out of the game. i'm just saying his numbers wern't that bad, not a ton of yards but good completion rate. i still think they should have run the ball a little more. don't get mr wrong, i was going for the colts, just think people need to back off grossman a bit.

Grossman doesnt control the game at all... He need to do more studying for the game!!! When you tell the press that you didnt really do you homework for a game that tell me right there he doesnt really know what to do!!!! He is the leader of the team and need to know everying on the O starts with him!!! My .02

Bottom line and the Bears need to realize this fact! The sooner they get a good QB in their, the closer they will get to a SB ring! The more time they take getting in a better player at that position is time wasted away.. you can bet they will be having other teams overpay for some of their defensive players and soon! It's only a matter of time until they have missed that window of opportunity and they know it and so do Rex's teammates! TICK TOCK!!!

Any thoughts guys?

His QB rating was 28th in the league for anyone who played at least 8 games. He was 3rd in interceptions. He was the reason they lost the games they did lose. Give the Bears a decent QB and they don't lose a game all year (unless they still mail in the GB game at the end, including the SB.

Exactly what I asked my partner here at the office and my brother, "if they had a good QB, how could you beat them?" They have an awesome defense, they have good recievers and running backs and an OK line. The special teams play was unbelievable. Really the ONE glaring weakness of this team is Rex. Put a real good QB in there and I really want to know how anyone thinks they could beat them???

I think there is too strong a sentiment about how bad Rex is. He is definitely either end of the spectrum though, so he needs to show more consistency. I think that will come with experience for him. For any old-timers, if you remember some of the real "great" Bear QB's of old (ala Jack Concannon, Larry Rakestraw, Bobby Douglas and on and on), then in comparison I think Rex is more likely to improve if he continues to play alot. Having said that, and remembering this is a team game, he really needs a good Oline and good receivers if that is gonna happen though.

I say lay off Rex. So he didn't win the big one? He got them there, didn't he? Now, if he keeps up the terrible to good to terrible to good string early next year, then I agree they have to consider other QB options.

Geno my friend, I have to totally disagree, HE DIDN'T get them there... his Defense and special teams carried him there. To say "he got them there" implies that HE was the man making all the winning difference making plays... he definitely was NOT this guy! Are you just saying that to get a response? Did I take the bait AGAIN? wink.gif

No Buzz, I didn't mean HE was the ONLY guy that got them there. You are correct about the "team" which is why I mentioned the Oline and receivers......I think we are meaning the same thing saying it two diff ways.

I guess the main thing I think is that he has the potential to improve so giving up on him now is too early IMO. Of course, should Favre become available to the Bears......and several others too, then they should consider improving the player at that very important position.

To me, "team" is the reason they got there. That and that ol' horseshoee. Nyuk, nyuk.

Buzz,

I think the appropriate statement would be that the Bears got there inspite of him. When he was good, he was really good but when he was bad it was el stinko. I think he tied Manning for number of games with a 100+ QB rating. But he was the QB and they did get to the dance so I guess he has to get his props.

Hes kinda like him, but in the same aspect, grossman is a person that can handle the game very very well. The best part about him is when he was in the perfect football mood, where he was running the games, and holding the team together, he was great. But down the line through the year, the man feel apart, and you could see it, just as well as i could, that the team was not the same when he was playing bad.

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!  
    • Wanderer
      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      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.
