      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 .

What do we do with this guy?

I want to keep him, only because he was a high draft pick.

Didn't we have another WR (Hassan Jones) that suffered from the dropsies and didn't he go to a hypnotist to improve. And didn't it work? I know Jones never was a great WR but I do beleive he did start holding onto the ball and would make some fantastic catches. Maybe the hypnotist thing was just a urband legend I heard??

What do you think? Keep him or dump him?

Obvisiously, he doesn't have much trade value at this point and he is a 1st round pick so that seems out of the question.

Let me know your thoughts

Just another Underwood! That's why I would rather have a free agent then a draft pick any day. With a free agent you most likely know what you're going to get. A draft pick may be good in college but you never truely know what you're gong to get in the NFL.

I'd say keep him another year, and see if the rookie jitters are now gone. He was able to get himself open sporadically, and just needs to concentrate more on the ball as it's approaching. Not sure if he is a little gun-shy about getting hit pretty hard, but that MIGHT explain why some balls were dropped.

I'd give it another year to see if he develops more. If anything, we could always get him to dip his hands in pine tar :-)

Package him up and trade him off, cut your loss. He had a year to learn how to catch last season. Carters camp will make you better but if you can't catch to start with. Running routes to make them look pretty and then drop the ball when it gets there is no improvement. Can you tell I am no fan of Williamson.. smirk.gif

jake reed had problems catching the ball also and was diagnosed with some sort of vision problem then was able to get that adjusted and was able to perform better.I agree keep butterfingers williamson and see if he has overcome the droppsies after all its not like we got a boat load of talent at reciever i noticed joe horn was released by the saints whats your take on picking him up he is a veteran reciever who we sure could use but the downsides are his best years behind him and he has had a handful of onfield and off field antics dont think childress would deal with that he also would come at a price.

You have more too gain by keeping him around and seeing if he can overcome his problems. Its his 3rd year and cutting him wouldnt save any cap room. He had a solid start too last season and the drop in the last drive of the bears game sent him spriralling downward. I have a bad feeling hes just plain a bust but you have too keep him around this year.

Drew Bennett signed with St.Louis. Kevin Curtis was in town but who knows where that will go.

Starter to the inactive roster...

We do not need another doped up wide reciever. Stallworth is one strike away from a big suspension. Besides, he is injury prone and highly over rated.

I didnt catch the hole story on KFAN this morning, but they were talking about Troy and his catching problems. Seems chili and other coaches, from watching films figure his problem has something to do with his helmet confused.gif So if they get him a new helmet, he should be on this way to the pro bowl next year grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Yep. It's true. Alot of fisherpeople aren't very good in the open water months because of the tiller-handle on their outboard. It's throwing off their concentration.

His helmet is bobbling around out there thus scurring his vision. 2 sizes smaller, a little lighter meshing on the facemask, and less padding and he'll be 1,500 yards +.

Millions of dollars of video equiptment finally pays off to find that Troy has been wearing Matt Birk's helmet this whole time. Birk never noticed the first year cuz he was out for hernia surgery.

Micheal Bennett had problems getting past the line of scrimmage because he was wearing Gary Anderson's old jock strap.

Ain't that a shame.

On second thought, maybe Troy should just skip the helmet all together??? confused.gifconfused.gif

      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.
