      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

Recommended Posts

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.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
