      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 .

I don't like any of your guys' sleepers, n/o. I just think Butler is too battle tested. My 5/12 is Arkansas, I also like Winthrop, Davidson, Oral Roberts, VCU, Stanford, Nevada. I won't get them all right, but it's fun to try. UNC is first #1 out, in my book. Vandy and Nevada the only seeds above 4 in the sweet 16. Florida and Ohio State for champsionship, give it to Florida on experience. I'm going with UF, OSU, UCLA, and G-town in Final 4.

Winthrop is my upset special...first over Notre Dame then over Oregon.. shocked.gif

Reason, Winthrop has 4 losses on the season to #1 seed North Carolina, #4 seed Maryland, #2 seed Wisconsin (o.t)and #3 seed Texas A&M. All losses were away.

Probably wrong but it seems as one cinderalla team shows up each year and this one is mine.

Would anyone out there consider OD over Butler much of an upset? I think Vegas has OD as a 1.5 point dog. Sounds to me like someone is either overrated or underrated. Just a thought.

see, that's what i know. i guess that's what i get for trying to remember the bracket without looking. i actually think duke will do ok. they are not real strong, but everyone is disrespecting them. they should be playing with a chip on their shoulder. ucla kinda reminds me of how my cylcoles limped in the year they were a #2 and got beat by hampton. if i gotta see that coach with his legs in the air one more time, i think i'll go nuts tongue.gif

I dont think the losses are what you should focus on, these 4 teams are the only good teams they have played all year. I need to see them step up more against a solid team to have faith. The only solid team they have played this year is Old Dominion which is a good win. There Strength of Schedule just didnt allow them to prove themselves. I think that ND will beat winthrop because of one key stat:

ND record vs top 25= 4-1

Winthrop record vs top 25= 0-4

I agree, hence the term "upset special"....their seeding proves the schedule weakness. 2 of the 4 losses were very close, North Carolina and Wisconsin. I actually have them pitted against WI in the sweet 16, only to lose to them again.

VCU over Duke. Or opening game Davidson upset special? I tried to spread out my upsets in all of my different pools. Who knows, one of those brackets could win the big time. I remember last year seeing a guy pick the Final 4 Dead on at yahoo. He was like a god to everyone else, and of course he was just some random guy picking his alma mater. I think he flubbed it from Final 4 in, but still, to get those 4 right was amazing. Somone else won by picking UF and getting the points.

Jimmy_Dub,

They had them in the first half! Then they had two nasty scoreless streaks in the second half. ORU had a good year...knocked off Kansas even.

      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?

      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.

      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks

      Yesterday the MN DNR announced a license requirement change effective NOW for this ice season. All Wheel House and other fishing structures which cannot be folded / collapsed must be licensed even if you remove the house when you get off the ice.

      Harvest climbs 16 percent from 2016 Minnesota firearms hunters registered 161,057 deer through the third weekend of deer season, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  Preliminary results through the third weekend show that the number of deer registered was up 16 percent from 2016. Of the deer harvested, 53 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent during the same period in 2016. In Zone 1, in northeastern Minnesota, total firearms harvest was up 36 percent. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 10 percent and Zone 3, in southeastern Minnesota, was down 5 percent. “The conditions were generally good for hunters participating in the last week of the Zone 1 season and for the start of the 3B season in the southeast,” said Erik Thorson, acting big game program leader, “which provided a boost to the statewide firearms harvest.” Based upon the number of antlerless permits available and the number of permit areas that allow multiple deer to be taken, the DNR is projecting the 2017 total deer harvest to be around 200,000. The 2016 total harvest was 173,213 and to date firearms and archery hunters have harvested about 180,000 deer this year. In much of Minnesota, the firearms deer season ended Nov. 12, and the northern rifle zone season ended Nov. 19. The late southeast firearms deer season is open through Sunday, Nov. 26. The muzzleloader season begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. More information on deer management can be found at mndnr.gov/deer. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Applications due by Saturday, Dec. 16  The Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission are seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee.  “The Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee plays a critical role in helping us achieve the vision Minnesotans have for use of the Parks and Trails Legacy Funds and creates an accessible and equitable, integrated system of state and regional parks and trails in Minnesota,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters. The committee is planning a series of regional events during the year to celebrate Legacy accomplishments and engage Minnesotans on the question, “Why Parks and Trails Legacy Matters.”  Information about the events will be available in January on Facebook (/PTLegacyMN) and on the committee website (www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac). The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents. Committee members should have expertise in two or more of the four strategic pillars of the plan: Connect people and the outdoors. Acquire land and create opportunities. Take care of what we have. Coordinate among partners. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. Meetings are scheduled every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Interested individuals may complete the application form online at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/member-application or print it out and return it to Paul Purman, Department of Natural Resources, Box 39, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155.
