      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 .

ESPN just reported that the vikings are going to release Marcus Robinson. Issues state that Robinson and Chilly never got along about playing time and Robinson's role on this team. Well this is the second #1 reciever that the team has released this season. Bring on DJ from USC thats the only hope that the Vikes got left for catching the ball.

Does Childress like anyone? Seems to be a problem here. He is not a great fan of the press. He did not get along with DC from the moment they met. Hmmm wonder if there is anything to the got to like your coach to play for him attitude. Would be a simple answer to why the O is playing like crap. Just a thought...

Robinson started 19 of the 41 games in which he's played in his three seasons with the Vikings


Not only has Robinson been an unhealthy entity and underachieving player... he has now been cut (surprise, surprise) and the head coach is getting grief?? It sounds to me like Robinson (who has been cut elsewhere) is the problem... I guess I just don't see it the same as the rest of you.

Don't know where those stats came from. We all know there is a difference between games started and games played and he has played in alot more games than listed. This year he has started only 3 games but played in 10 games. Over the last 2 years he has played in 16 games (2004) and 15 games (2005) but it doesnt say how many games started, this was off the net. For him not being healty, Robinson was quoted in the paper the other day that Childress made him inactive one game due to some injury but Childress never had him listed on the injury report. I just think this new coach Childress is playing the power game and showing the team who is in charge, he is taking this all wrong for being a 1st yr coach. I think the guy is the biggest joke to ever coach the Vikes. Teamates have said he doesnt take input from players on whats going on on the field, he has never talked to BJ (quote from BJ), common he's your QB and never had a conversation with him?? Get rid of Childress now before he really makes this team not worth a damm....

On the StarTrib today they had that he told Sirus radio Robinson was released because of a "skill and ability thing." Must be that he caught too many TD's and didn't drop enough passes to be a good enough WR in Childress's eyes.

Yes, Childress sure seems to have a chip on his shoulder when it comes to this. Has the guy ever smiled? His news conferences on FOX are as about as exciting as a five day nose-bleed. What's the deal? You kind of have to give the buy some slack because none of these players he had anything to do with picking. Look at it this way. If you had to coach Troy Williamson, would you be very happy? I don't know but time will tell.

From what I have read Robinson was complaining about lack of playing time. Not being on the active squad when healthy. I do have some growing concerns with Childress and the new front office. Hearing him ( Childress ) saying Jackson played well... First time in almost 700 games the Vikings gained only 3 first down. And this was an ok performance from your QB ? I don't want to be the first one to say it but I think Vikings fans are in a for a terrible stretch of football and this is not the low point of it.. the only shinning spot has been the D and a gleam from Chester Taylor who has been used so much his bruises have bruises. I hope they make me eat my words but I picked the Rams punt returner in one of my fantasy games cuz I think it is going to more 3 and out from them in their last game.

Right up there with Steckel??? Steckel was 3 and 13 with a decent group of athletes dude...

Childress has to reshape this team a bit to fit his offense. Expect more changes before we see any improvement. I've not been totally impressed with him by any means, but we have to realize we don't know the half of what goes on in practice or elsewhere around the inner workings of the Vikes. Whining players should be the LAST thing we use to gauge support for the coach. As a whole, pro athletes are the biggest bunch of coddled egomaniac babies on the planet, and a HORRIBLE judge of anything!!

Ummmm, Carolina Panthers were picked by everybody to represent the NFC in the SB this year... Are they making the playoffs? Look at Washington every year... spend, spend, spend and nothing.... what about last years SB champion Steelers??? You see my point is alot of teams with HIGHER expectations falter... nobody picked the Vikes to do anything this year... keep it in proper perspective. cool.gif

I am a patient person, but Childress is wearing thin. I will give him the benefit of the doubt. I think Ziggy is too, but if next season is a mirror of this season then I think Ziggy is going to drop the hammer on him. Childress needs to get off his high horse because everything he is doing is not the right decisions from player evalutions/handling to press relationships. He says that everything will be evaluated during the offseason personnel and players. I wonder who will evaluate him or how he will be critiqued and how he will take it. If he players can't talk to him who can? He doesn't have the supporting coaching staff because of all the inexperience. It seems like a one man show and he is leaving everyone in the wake. He may be the first of the rookie coaching class to be terminated in the future. Makes you wonder how any of the other rookie coaches would have done here.

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?

      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.
