      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 .

Like I've been saying, the luck would run out for Grossman and the OVERRATED Bears! The Dolphins are supposed to be one of the worst teams in the league, much Like Arizona!! They put the beat down on the Bears, kinda like the Cardinals were doing... only this time the horseshoe thingee didn't work out for the OVERRATED Bears! ALL I can say is it's a blessing in disguise.... maybe the Bears fans won't crash so hard now when they choke in January!! shocked.gif

You sound like my wife, everytime I give her constructive criticism... she changes the subject to something I could do better.... too funny! If you look, there are other posts bashing the Vikes and Williamson in particular. Lets try to stay focused on the Bears in this thread okay. Face it, they were exposed to a one win team today!!! OUCH!!

With 3 straight away games, and tough ones to boot, I think the Bears better stop believing the hype about themselves....but that ain'ta gonna happen, and they are just plain lucky to be in such a cruddy division. C'mon Vikes and Pack, push 'em alittle at least so the Bears can't coast/back-in to the title!

You are correct on all counts but c'mon. Your boys got done at home by Joey freaking Harrington. This is a quarterback that even the big dufus Tice never lost to. There is plenty of shame to go around this weekend. Feel free to join us in bashing both our teams.

After the next three weeks, although they will still probably lead the division, I predict either they'll be calling 'em teddy Bears or hibernating Bears.

Buzzsaw,

Not sure how well you know Joe (Ragnar), but he was the hall monitor at my high school back in the late 1980's. For as scary as he looks, he was actually a pretty nice/modest fella - pretty sure he doesn't eat Bears or Bears fans. Only gripe I have with him is that he turned me in for tobacco use (he saw me chewing cope off-campus) and I got suspended from baseball the week that we played Cretin DH (Weinke era)...I still haven't gotten over that.

Go Bears!

Pete

I know Joe really well as a matter of fact when he was your liason guy at Minneotonka H.S. he would show up at the Tonka hockey games and we'd chat weekly.... I was employed by the City of Mtka back in the day.... Joe is now a Liason to Hopkins H.S.

Pete, I gratuated Hopkins in '86 and know alot of Tonka boys... any chance you played hockey or knew any Hopkins people?

Most of the hockey players I knew were also baseball players - I didn't play hockey. I moved to MTKA in 9th grade, so I didn't grow-up with these guys and haven't maintained any meaningful friendships - though I still consider them 'high-school friends'. I played with Justin McHugh, Jeff Dahl, Tim Hanus and Dale 'Off-the-skate-and-in-the-goal' Roehl (sorry Dale). I hung-out a bit with Sean Goldsworthy...I knew a few others (Agar, Tavi, Bouchard, Larsen), but my memory has clouded a bit over the years.

I knew few Hopkins folks. Mark Gonsoir hung-out with my circle of friends - not sure if you know his tragic story, but god rest his soul - he was the good sh!t...

Joe and I developed an interesting 'school-friendship'...I think he was new to MTKA HS around the same time I moved here from Chi-town. As you probably know, adolesent Tonka brats are not always the most welcoming/accepting people. Joe, I think, was from out-state (maybe up-north?). I think his family had a knife/chainsaw sharpening business (?)- He once shaved his beard at a pep-rally with an axe that he had sharpened...he also 'took all-comers' at arm-wrestling...he shared a story of being beaten-up and left for dead (teeth and face bashed in) - said it changed his life and helped him re-dedicate himself to live a full-life. Seeing him on the field during Vikings games brings a smile to my face - kudos to him...still wish he wouldn't have ratted me out though smile.gif

Dale Roehl!! I can't remember if it was him or maybe his brother (Ross)that was our goalie in mens league at Tonka... he was alot of fun, he'd play better with beer in his system!! tongue.gif I just saw "Hondo" Tim Hanus at the Gophers Hockey game vs CC a few weeks ago (Friday night).

I talked to Joe again before the Vikes game, he is a good guy and would probably remember you if you saw him. Take it easy.

The Bears have shown the last 2 weeks(Giants, Jets) that they deserve being 9-1. They can't help it that their division has Detroit, terrible general manager and organization period, Green Bay, who now have the reputation of not paying their players well, except for an over the hill QB, and Safety, then there's the Vikes, enough said. Yea the Bears are in a terrible division, a terrible conference, but they win. Go Bears!

I'll cheer for a team in the division(except the Viqueens) and would love to see da Bears kick butt this year but I see them going down in the playoffs. The offense will fail them at crunch time.

Thanks PT

And Cooter you may be right but I'll take it when I can get it. You have to get to the dance to take the prom queen home. I don't really see any potholes getting to the big dance but there are a few "ugly girls" lurking behind the speaker stands in the gym just waiting to send my beloved home from the prom with Rosie and her 5 sisters.

I don't know if you watched the game Geno, but I hate to use this as an excuse but it was obvious that the Bears got "jobbed" on several key calls. One was at about the 10 yard line and one was in the endzone. If they had those points early, Rex would not have had to force the throws he did. Oh well, take it like a man and move on. 9-2 ain't bad.

Nope, couldn't see the game from the Roulette wheel.

Just heard from some other Bear fans how bad Rex looked and what terrible coaches plays were sent in and how receivers did not fight for the ball and........

Windy..I think there were some bad calls and non calls on both sides of the ball on Sunday.I didnt think Grossman did that bad,but he has some issues with pressure.I would like to see them roll Grossman out a little more and they need to use there tightend a little more also.Gman seems to always want to go for the big play instead of a sustained drive,but that may be the coaches calling that.Im looking forward to this weekend in hopes of a Bears victory over the Vikes............GO BEARS...........

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.
