      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 .

My two cents... this simply shows even more of why there should NOT be a two tier tourney for hockey. I am from the "cities", and both me and brother played in the tourney in different years (not private schools, and not the burbs either) and we both we in the one tier time. He was the in the last year of "The Great Eight".

And I got knocked out by Hibbing, a much smaller school in population, but the northern teams are indeed great. I always loved them from when I was a little kid.

I edited out my thoughts on two tiers wink.gif

(Sorry for my words if you are a two tier fan.)

finally the last few years the northeren teams are turning it up. it sure seemed like a rough few years for them. Glad to see Hill Murray where they are, dang private schools. I would love to see a single champ in the end, maybe a big 16 team tourney, not a fan of the 2 teir system. Sad to say this is the first year in 19years I haven't made it to see any of the games live, had a 11 year run where I never missed a session. boy those where fun years w/ the buddies dreaming of playing in that tourney. What a blast!!!

Where is Cretin this year? didn't even make it to the tourney. Rapids had a bad final game last year but there are no southern teams in the finals this year, can't argue with that.

Go Rapids

I always loved our annual "northern trip" in hockey. I loved to make those guys cry. Don't think they had ever been beaten my 10 or 20 goals. Usually played in the Hibbing tourney and eveleth or mesabi tourneys. It was hard to get invited back to these tourneys, they didn't like to get worked over like that by a southern twin cities team. I remember palying eveleth, between periods Gaolie changed equip, all defense played forward, and vice versa. Goallie got 2 goals at center in 3rd period. Can't beat that kind of fun as a kid. I hope Hastings can get their act together soon, get rid of a coach, and quit losing all stars to Shattuck- St. Mary's. Games will be on soon, go roseau!

Don't think for a minute that those northern schools don't do some recruiting themselves. But it is great to see the smaller schools shine at this time of the year.

I was at all of the Thursday games. Roseau was the best team there, and deserved to win the tournament. Although I still think Holy Angels and Moorhead were the two best teams in the state this year. Section 8 should be strong again the next few years, with Moorhead and Roseau battling for the chance at state...

Of the 79 state high school boys hockey state champions...41 have been from "outstate" and 38 have been from the "metro". Pretty close!

I love the original tournament too. The coverage now almost tottaly ignores the class A bracket. I remember Greenway 1987 #1 team in the state until bloomington kennedy. But everyone is supposed to be able to get to the tourney now even though most of the sections include teams from the cities.

There should be 1 class in hockey, period. It would encourage competition and definitely avoid a lot of this "Ford vs. Chevy" type discussions.

      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.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
