      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 .

Bison vs. Gophers

So, what's your prediction of the game this weekend?? Score included.

It could be interesting considering the position that MN is in right now. I have a tough time believing that NDSU will win against a Big 10 team when they are still young in their Division I program, but it could be a shocker! Hopefully the underdog will prevail.

Well, I know that it's a lose/lose situation for the Gophers... If they blow them out the naysayers will say "they were supposed to" and will receive no credit for the win and if they lose, the NDSU fans will be making plugs for the Rose Bowl... we'll maybe not the RB, but I assume they will get rabid. I just wish they would have came to the dome last year when we had a decent team... we probably would have won by 40 points last year... this year...I'll go on record and say Gophers 34 Bison 20.

Hmmmm. Figured there would be more response. Either everyone has given up on the Gophers or they're a little nervous about this game. I'm leaning towards the former and don't blame them.

I'm a gopher fan but i'd love too see NDSU win. I had a friend play for the Bison a few years back. Had he not blown his knee out his senior year he'd be in the NFL. He played for a small southern MN high school and the gophers turned their nose at him simply because of this. NDSU recruited him as a sophmore. He signed with them. Middle way through his senior year in HS the U of Iowa watched him play basketball and couldnt believe the way he moved on the court for such a big man and offered him a ride on the spot and he turned it down because NDSU had been there for 3 years. So for all those small school guys who the gophers didnt give even a look, and the bison snatched up, i hope the bison win!

Lets make it fair......I highly doubt there is a point spread on the game for obvious reasons so lets put it out at 29.

So the Gophers are favored by 29 in NDSU's super bowl.......I'll lay the 29 and take the Gophers .........what say you..... grin.gif

I've heard the official/unofficial line on this game was 26pts. I'll take the Bison to cover if it's 26 OR 29. Heading out the door right now and heading to the Big Inflatible Toilet to watch the game.

Get on your feet Bison fans, the march is on!

Well the Bison deserved better! They outplayed our Division 1 team for most of the game and made some key mistakes that cost them in the end. On a side note, it's a bummer to lose on a blocked FG attempt. I hope they schedule them again in the near future. The Bison fans should be proud!! The Gophers should feel lucky!!

An "L" would have been an embarrasment, it will go down in the record books as a win, albeit a very shaky one... but we lost to Penn State a few weeks ago in a game we "should" have won, but those ghost pass interference calls on 4th down in the extra session working against you are just not good, nor lucky. In the end, Minny is a weak shell of the team they've had the last few years...and those teams were barely top 20 material. Gotta get back to the "REAL" Minnesota team, the Gophers hockey team.... wink.gif

Although a "W" in the record books, it's definitely a "L" for the football program. The Bison fans came away from the game with heads up and nothing to be ashamed of. Their team lost by one point to a Big 10 team on the road and should have won if not for a few turnovers. What a game. It was hard to tell who won and who lost after the game judging by the crowd. The M fans were pretty quiet.

Minnesota fans should be embarrassed.

Go Bison!!

We'll the Gopher's won a game they didn't deserve to win and like I said, it turned into a lose/lose deal for the U of M. maybe thats why small schools don't get many chances against larger schools... hmmm.

P.S. Gotta correct you Lmitout, It's not the Minnesota FANS that need to be embarrassed, it's Glen Mason and his wacky staff of underperformers! Just want you to keep things in perspective.

The media has been talking about the obvious lose-lose situation all week long leading up to this game. The Bison had nothing to lose and it fell right into their hands the way the game played out.

My point was that they should feel embarrassed to have a coach like Mason running (or ruining) their team. How can the fans feel good about rooting for their team that underperforms week in and week out? And I'm not saying it's not entirely the player's fault, but moreso their head coach putting them into positions such as the one we saw yesterday.

Yesterday was the first Gopher's game that I've attended and I was shocked by how little fan support there was from the opening kickoff. The place would have seemed dead but for the Bison fans who were very into the game from start to finish. There was a lot of maroon and gold in the seats, but I think a lot of them were there just to be there and really didn't have any interest in supporting this club.

It's unfortunate for their fans to have to deal with this clown and also the A.D. for rewarding him to a big contract that was not deserved one bit. Things need to change over there and blame starts at the top.

      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!

      Any where from 12' to 30' humps. Bass and a few walleyes setting up on top and sides of these humps. Cliff

      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.
