      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 .

The north teams taken it to the city boys this year. I think the big thing has been the physical style of hockey that the northern boys play. GO NORTH old time hockey with home town boys. NO RECRUITING.

Yeah, I agree! I'm not a fan of the 2 tier system, but it's good to see a few small schools are still playing and beating the big boys. Just like the old days when the small northern schools beat up on the giants like Bloomington, Edina, Burnsville etc.

No recruiting? Are you saying Saint Thomas, and hill Murray recruit? Or maybe Edina?

Well I remember the Jon Casey controversy in 1980 when he transfered to rapids from Greenway.

I have played hockey of the my life and yes these teams recruit. In my younger days I played in a hockey tournament called Super Series. A good friend of mine played for Detroit Lakes he got recruited to play for the Breck school. He went to Breck won the state tournament a few years back and then went on to play for MSU. It does happen.

Don't get me wrong here because I've always loved teams from outstate MN versus the "cities" teams and always will. The recruiting that takes place isn't just happening in the metro! With open enrollment some hockey programs put feelers out there to see if they can convince any ringers to play for them. One example that comes to mind, how do you think Wyatt Smith ended up in Warroad back in the day...hometown, Thief River Falls.

Doesn't Warroad have a guy from Finland on their team? Plus I think there are a couple kids on the Warroad team from other cities that DO have a hockey program. I don't blame them, more exposure, and a chance to play in the big game.

I played in the 80's and we found out that I Falls recruited a guy from Canada to join their squad. And I believe that Duluth Marshall has a player who transferred this season from Eveleth, North and South both recruit!

The important thing to remember here is that the tournament comes down to four schools from the North. After seeing so many of these schools have to play a school from the cities or near the cities just to make it out of the sections.

This was a great day for hockey north of the Brainerd Parallel.

International Falls has always had a number of kids who were birthed in the Fort Frances hospital due to the suspect nature of the Falls hospital. Many others were birthed in Virginia, Hibbing and even Duluth.

Falls won state in 1972. A player on the '73 third-place team grew up in the Fort, moved across the river for high school and played on the first hockey teams at St. Scholastica. Some years later a kid named Anders Anderson (sp) moved to the Falls through what was a bantam program international exchange. Anders later played at UMD about the same time the Mason brothers (Bob, Olympian and now Gophers goalie coach and Bill, referee in this weekend's tournament as well as WCHA) played in the multi-OT NCAA tournament game.

To say that an import has ever helped any team from the north is BS. Anyone with any knowledge of the game knows that twin cities private schools "recruit" and have access to kids who sacrifice playing with their buddies for would-be success. Same thing goes for the league in Michigan that sucks the life out of kids, promising them scholarships.

Grand Rapids struggled last night and Roseau capitalized. I think it's safe to say the better team won last night despite the other discussion taking place within this thread.

Awesome tournament, Burnsville's comeback will be remembered for awhile, An all north final four, the roseau coach and player losing a family member in Iraq, these are the things that have made this an awesome tournament.

As one of those hated private school, city boys, I have to say that outside of seeing my boys come back to defend their big school title from last year, this all northern final was the next best thing. Brought back the days of growing up watching the tournaments in the 80's when I was a kid.

On the other topic that was addressed in this thread. Isn't the State High School League trying to restructure the transfer rules due to the recruiting and jumping of schools purely for athletic reasons? If the same BS wasn't going on in the public schools there would be no reason for MSHSL to take this action.

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
