      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 .

Here are the match-ups for the tourney:

Thursday, March 15: No. 5 Wisconsin (17-17-4) vs No. 4 Michigan Tech (18-16-5), 7:07 pm CT.

Friday, March 16: No. 3 North Dakota (21-12-5) vs No. 2 St. Cloud State (22-8-7), 2:07 pm CT; Thursday's Winner vs No. 1 Minnesota (28-9-3), 7:07 pm CT.

Saturday, March 17: Third Place Game, 2:07 pm CT; Broadmoor Trophy Championship Game, 7:07 pm CT.

I think St. Cloud is going to have a tough time against the Sue, I hate to say. By the way, if anyone is looking to get rid of tickets for the 2pm game on Friday, let me know, I would like to go.

1. Go Huskies! and if that fails... 2. Go Gophers!

I'm going for all 5 games (have been for about 10 years now), I can't wait. I'm a gopher fan, but think they're probably the 3rd best team in the tourney behind SCSU & UND. I can't wait for that friday afternoon game, could be the 2 best teams in the country right now. UND has really been on a tear lately & I think SCSU has been the best team since about the midway point in the season. I wouldn't be surprised if the winner of that game wins the NCAA title too.

Hmm, no trash talk yet? SCSU had a very tough time against UMD (proud of my Dog's for their effort). They played over 4 games worth of minutes in 3 days, so I would think SC will be a little fatigued. I think they are better than UND, but the Sioux are hot lately so I guess this one's a toss up.

My predictions are:

WI over MT

UM over WI

SC over UND (very close one though)

SC over UM (all MN final)

I love your predictions but I think UND is going to be hard to beat. They always turn it on at tournament time. I finally found some tickets for the SCSU/UND game, so I will cheering for the Huskies!!

kind of a toss up since they way all the teams are playing lately, anyone could win. here's what i think will go down, but I hope I'm wrong (go gophers).

Tech over 'Sconi

Tech over Gophs

Sioux over Huskies

Sioux over Tech

I'm looking at Tech for the upset. They gave the gophers and the sioux some trouble late in the season. the sioux always turn it up for the final 5, they will have a strong run. The Badgers aren't impressing anyone right now with dominant play. SCSU will be run down after last weekend, and will play hard but maybe not for all 3 periods; Goepfert will determine whether or not the team advances. The gophers have been playing poorly since January. It will take all they can give to beat Tech and advance. Inconsistent defensive play will lead to a goaltending collapse.

Should be a good weekend of hockey!

I think your picks look pretty good, that's exactly how I'm picking it; even thought I'd like the final to go the other way.

Looks like I can't type as fast as some of the others. Just to make sure, I agree w/ solbes, not deadhead. BTW Jill, I hope the Huskies beat the Sioux, as long as it's a MN team winning, I'll be happy.

Gophs get thier act together and win it. With the Play off final game with the Sea wolves they now know it takes grit to win those playoff games. They come out flying.

I totally agree, I would always go for a MN team over any others. So if the Huskies can't pull it out, I would prefer to see the Gophs win.

With the Gophers, Huskies, and Sioux all pretty much assured of a spot in the playoffs, I wouldn't mind seeing Wisconsin win the Final Five tourney to put another WCHA team into the playoffs...

Of course, they would probably just end up bumping Michigan Tech or Denver, so it might just be a wash for the WCHA anyway...

Badgers looked real tough last night. If they can score goals, Elliott can take them deep. It might be a tough fight for the Goph's tonight.

I'm also assuming there are only 3 WCHA teams going to the big tourney, barring a Final 5 Bsdger title. I know Tech won't get in and I would doubt whether Denver will get in. Even with only 3 teams in the NCAA, it's probably even money that one of them will win it.

The badgers played a very tough defensive game, they didn't give up too many good scoring chances & tech couldn't put the puck on net when they did have a chance. I was surprised w/ a couple of the goals that tech gave up; I thought their goalie was a little more solid than he was last night, but credit wisconsin for going hard to the net and getting traffic in front of him. should be interesting to see which team the gophers show up with tonight; hopefully it's the one from the 1st half of the season, but i think wisconsins is going to give them a heck of a game. i'm really looking forward to this afternoons game, like i said before i think it could be the 2 best teams in the country right now & i think whoever wins it has a great chance to go all the way to the ncaa title. i'm on the way out the door, headed to the game, have fun everyone, this is the best hockey time of the year.

I also watch the game. In my opinion I thought it was more of a lack of play by Tech than it was a great defensive performance. Tech just never got thier feet moving. Tech really doesn't have any offense to begin with, so they made Wis defense look great. Tonight will be a different story. More of and offense and depth

I was wrong about my Tech prediction with the Badgers winning last night, so maybe there's hope after all of the Gophers advancing to the finals tongue.gif The Badgers looked tough last night

Wow! even as a sioux fan I didn't think they would handle scsu the way they did. I didn't get a chance to watch the game, but listened to as much as I could while at work. Should be a great game tonight! laugh.gif

I expect the Gophers to dominate and win tonight, then come out with a weak effort and fall flat on their face tomorrow.

That seems to be their pattern.

Nice to see Wheeler raise the bar tonight and really put the screws to Elliot. Should be a great game tomorrow night.

Wheeler player of the game, he didn't stand out in my eyes. Yes he got 3 goals but what about play away from the puck?

The GOPHERS need to turn it up a notch each game. Why on a 5 on 3 do you only get I think 2 shots on net? I know they are young but the early season raised my standards for them and it should help them down the line. Briggs looked good. could get the record tomorrow.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.

      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
