      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 .

Childress and his west coast offense must go

Here's a constructive topic that everyone can enjoy.

Run, run, run on 2nd and long, then pass incomplete on 1st and goal at the 3. Have you every seen a more gut wrenching display of terrible offense game planning during todays game against Miami?

Then let's wait until there's 1 second left in the game to score a touchdown and try for an onside kick. Oops...no time left.

Pathetic is all I can say. 4th & goal on the 1 yrd line and you settle for 3pts, common. Chester has been runnung all game and you can't give him the rock for a 1yrd TD?? This coach is as pathetic and conservative as they come and you can't ne like that in the NFL, takes chances.

Does Childress call the plays himself??? If so I want to know who really called the plays in Philly because is obviously wasn't him. And I think Johnson needs to be replaced, hate to say it becasue he is a class act, but he is just getting hammered on back there and making some very poor decisions. How can a team have the #1 rush defense in the league and suck so bad?

Sherrif might pull one off at the dome even.

I am pretty sure Andy Reid called the plays when Chili was still in Philly. It doesn't seem to me that they adjust to the other teams adjustments-- if you get what I mean? In other words they come out well in the beginning with a decent game plan and usually score early on. But then the other team will adjust and start to shut them down. Then Chili doesn't seem to adjust to the adjustments the opposition just made.

In case there were lingering doubts before yesterday...THIS TEAM STINKS! mad.gifmad.gif I swore them off after losing to San Fran, and this news re-doubled my efforts at avoiding the mysery of watching even one more game.

Man, am I glad Childress never got a chance to come to GB. I know McCarthy has his faults, but at this point in the season I'm happier with McCarthy. Looks like MN will be picking ahead of the Packers once again.

lawdog if you swore off the vikings then why are you posting on this thread?

Childress has done a pretty good job overall. The bottomline is that the players (who get paid alot more than the coach) need to execute the plays. I can't remember a time in minnesota when the fans weren't pissin and moaning about something.

Actually MN ranks in the upper third for plays over 20 yards but I would like to see a little more aggressiveness in the play selection. Let see a few reverses in there and I think I can count on one hand the number of screens tossed this season. Granted the last one thrown went for a TD , the other way. But you have to do more then pound it twice in the line and then try and get a first on a short 3rd down pass that everyone knows is coming. Of course you got to have the horses to pull the wagon and MN does not have that. D is easier to pull together as one player can make an outstanding play and stop a play, On offense it takes several players to click together to make a positive play. I'll keep watching but glad I play fantasy football so I have other teams to pull for. Of course all of us arm chair quarterbacks always have the answers. I just don't think they have come together as a team, very seldom does that happen in a year with as many changes as the Vikes have gone through this year. But like all fans we want to see our team win now.. not next year.

execution, execution, execution (not execute the coach)....any offense looks bad if the players don't execute it the way it was designed.....to much time spent on the defense in the off season and not enough on the offense......give childress a break...how many great coaches had horrible first seasons....Jimmy Johnson...tuna....billick....ect ect. fair weather fans can all move to greenbay!!!!

I know the players are to blame, but The coaches gotta call better plays. If its 3rd and long you dont run routes that are only 5 yards long. run, run, pass How predictable is that

biggest difference between Chilli and the rest is that Chili started with some talent, Zygi spent money on talent. (Granted, some of the talent is playing terrible, T-Will, McKinnie, Birk, etc...) we all figured they would be poor this year, but not this poor. I do believe that you've got to give a coach at least 2 years to get established. What bothers me is how Darn BORING the games are. This team is just a snoozer. Poor Paul Allen has nothing to yell about.

Well, I'm still not changing my mind. The thing is MN was suppose to be one of the best coaching jobs out there last year, because they were the "closest playoff contender" team out there and that is why Childress went there. With the additions they brought in they are almost worse than last year. While the Packers, Jets, and Saints are improving the Vikings seem to be taking a step back.

Vikings are a good team this season, they only lack solid wide receivers.. Trust me, with solid wr's, Vikings should be playoff contenders again!

Supa, are you watching the same games that we are? The O line, (for having 2 probowl players) is terrible. Whether its holding, offsides, or just plain breaking down. It seems like all five can never block at the same time, someone always gets beat. Our QB's get their buts kicked.

On Defense, yeah our run defense allows very little yardage, but who would run against us when the pass is so easy to come by? We are not a good team, we were a good team last year, this year, we are a bad team. We are a long way from becoming a great team, even from becoming a playoff team.

      I've been fishing all my life, but I've only recently started seriously catfishing. I've discovered a spot near my home on the Minnesota river where the current comes to a still near a small, no longer active dam where there are rocks and tons of baitfish, which I assume should be a good spot for big flatheads. I've fished this spot a few days now and have only successfully pulled out a small flathead of maybe 5 or 6 pounds on a medium sized live sucker about a foot below a bobber. For your experienced catters, what's the best approach for big cats this time of year? Do you prefer live bait or cut bait? When using cut bait are heads or filets better? Since MN only allows one rod out should I be focusing my bait near the bottom of the river or a couple feet under a bobber? I tend to fish between 7pm-10pm although I'd like to try more late night fishing. Thanks for any suggestions!

      Had similar issues.  I was up for three weeks, each week it was a different set of boats encroaching.  I don't think you can do to much about the one week fishermen. They are in a panic to find fish and when the see one go in the boat, look out. One time,  I was looping in and out of a small spot picked up nice fish and this guy comes in right on that spot and starts jigging.  I couldn't even get back to it.  He would have never know it was there.  I just leave and find more fish.  
    • RoosterMan
      Definitely that time of year again.  Load the boat full of kids and put the raps out and be prepared to catch a lot of fish.  Only gets better from here.  Pic of my son and his cousin and their limits.  Good memories being made.

      When archery deer season opens Saturday, Sept. 16, mandatory testing for chronic wasting disease and restrictions on moving deer carcasses begins again in southeastern Minnesota’s CWD management zone, deer permit area 603.  “With archery deer season approaching, hunters are encouraged to plan ahead and be aware of the testing that will be required and the specifics about when they can and can’t move carcasses out of the CWD zone,” said Lou Cornicelli, wildlife research manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Archery hunters in deer permit area (DPA) 603 will be required to submit the head from all adult deer 1 year old or older so lymph nodes can be tested for CWD. Hunters cannot remove the carcass or carcass remains from the CWD zone until a negative test result is reported. Carcass movement restrictions do allow hunters to immediately transport out of the zone quarters or other deer pieces without spinal column parts; boned-out meat; and antlers with a skull plate that is free of brain matter. Hunters should check page 65 of the 2017 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook for additional information. “Archery deer hunters also should check the DNR website for the DPA boundary map,” Cornicelli said. “As a reminder, the CWD management zone was created from DPAs 347 and 348, so hunters need to be mindful of what area they’re hunting.” Hunters are required to register their deer. DNR will allow phone and Internet registration during the archery season in the CWD zone. The system will be monitored for compliance and may be turned off if needed. Mandatory testing and carcass movement restrictions will remain in effect for area 603 throughout deer seasons for archery, firearm, muzzleloader and any late season hunts. Head collection boxes will be located in: Chatfield: Magnum Sports, 1 1st St., 507-867-4399. Preston: DNR area forestry office, 912 Houston St., 507-765-2740. Lanesboro: DNR area fisheries office, 23789 Grosbeak Rd., 507-467-2442. Wykoff: Goodies and Gas, 104 E Front St., 507-352-2421. Harmony: Oak Meadow Meats, 50 9th St., 507-886-6328 Archery hunters should do the following: Field dress (gut) deer as normal. Register deer via phone, internet or walk-in big game registration station. If harvest occurs late in the day, sample (head) submission and registration do not have to occur on the same day. If the deer will be mounted, a video showing how to properly cape your deer is available at bitly.com/capeadeer. Remove the head, leaving at least 4 inches of neck attached. Hunters can take meat out of the zone immediately but the carcass (head with brain and spinal column) cannot be moved outside deer permit area 603 until a negative test result is received so hunters must: Make arrangements to refrigerate the carcass before the deer is processed; Cut deer into quarters or other pieces; or Bone-out the meat. Ensure no spinal column or brain matter is included with the meat or on the antlers. Properly dispose of carcass remains. There will be a dumpster at the DNR forestry office in Preston for hunters who don’t have a way to dispose of remains. The Preston dumpster is being provided as a courtesy for deer carcass disposal only. It will be removed if people attempt to process deer there or use the dumpster for trash disposal. Bring the entire head of deer to one of five head box collection sites. Each collection box has specific instructions on how to properly submit the head for sampling. Put heads in the plastic bags provided. Use the maps provided at each box to mark an “X” where the deer was harvested. Submit this map with sample. Samples during the archery season will be submitted for testing on Mondays and Thursdays. It may take up to four business days for test results to be available.  CWD test results can be searched using a nine-digit MDNR number online at www.mndnr.gov/cwdcheck. Deer hunters should regularly check the DNR’s CWD website at mndnr.gov/cwd for the most recent information. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
