      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 .

Wild in the playoff's

Recommended Posts

This is going to be one of the toughest series I think the Wild have ever encountered. All these games are going to be 1 goal games with both goalies having stellar performances. Backstrom is going to have to shine against a very good Ducks team. The biggest factor is going to be lines 2, 3 and 4 for the Wild. You know when Gaborik and Demitra are on the ice Pronger and Niedermeyer will be their shadows all series long. My prediction- Wild in 5.

I'd like to see it go 6 games. I've got tickets for game 6 and it falls on a day that I don't have to work. Should be a good series...

Tougher then beating the Avalanche and Canucks a couple of years back, I'm not so sure this is as tough.

I do like your prediction though. I also think the Wild will beat them.

What about them game times, they are terrible.

I can't wait for the 1st game, gonna be hard to stay up and watch the whole thing. I am just glad they made the playoff's and they will take us on another ride like they did in 2003 but they will go to the finals against NJ.

Game times are to accomodate television...these games have to be late enough to not compete with earlier east-coast games.

I remember the playoff run a few years back...a lot of late nights (games in Vancouver) and being tired for days because of it...

The TV schedule sucks for me...living in South Dakota, I don't get Channel 45. FSN does not simulcast the Wild games that are on 45. They will do that with the Twins games; maybe they will do it with the Wild playoff games. But if there is a Twins game on FSN, I certainly won't get the Wild game.

Tough loss for the Wild last night. I did not agree with the last goal at all. The ref should of blew the whislte when Backstrom had the puck under his glove and all the players on top of him. After watching last nights game this is going to be one tough series for the Wild.

dont expect to see too many games thanks to the deal with versus. Maybe CBC will carry the games if they play a Canadien team.

It sure is nice not being able to watch the games. You support this team all year long and when they finally make it to the play-offs you can't watch them. I know I live in a smaller town but you would think there would be a bar that would show it. They just opened up a new Sport's Bar here in Hibbing and you would think the new owner would be promoting business by advertising drink specials and The Minnesota Wild in the play-offs. What a joke!!! I'm so happy I pay $65.00 per month to sit and watch four or five channel and out of them channel they don't even have the your home states hockey games on. It just really ticked me off to have to sit and watch the EX North Stars play Van. and listen to my home team play on the radio. Sure glad I get to go to the metro for work next week so at least I can watch a game.

What is posted on the wild website is that the NHL accidently blocked out the NHL package on Direct Tv. So if you were outside the 50 mile radius of the Cities you didn't get to support your team anywhere.

In reading an article this morning I see Channel 45 had one of the largest viewers watching reports for a sporting event as of 4/11/07 "The WILD game. No brainers!!! Guess I will have to watch the game tonight just like in the old days. Stare at the radio. Since there is no work tomorrow might just have to build a fire and tip some Peva's too. Go WILD!!!!

The Ducks are just a better team. Nothing to be ashamed of. They had a good run. Maybe next year, but they need some bigger D

Little bit off topic here but how well is Bouchard being paid? He has got to arguably be one of the best corner men in the league. Really enjoy watching how often he comes out of the scrum with the puck.

I am not sure, but I thought they still have a game to play. They have won more than 4 in a row this year. All have been one goal games. Havent had a puck bounce their way yet maybe the next 4 games they will. Jump back on the band wagon and wait until it is completely done before you give up.

I love your optimism. I just look at reality. Have the Wild even been ahead yet? We have not even seen Anaheim when they need to "turn up" their forecheck. The way they cycle/ keep control of the puck in the opponents zone is amazing. They are bigger, faster, and stronger. They will win the cup.......

Minnesota isnt done yet....They do need to do some work in the off season to beef up a little more on D. Anaheim does have the best D team in the league I believe. Which means they may only win games by one goal. Same way New Jersey used to be when they had the best D team.

      Sorry to hear. Being the guide-dad you want everyone to have fun. No fish on worms? Had to be the Eclipse!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Trip didn't go as planned. I had been asking some questions on here to get some info/ideas for the trip. Greatly appreciated all the stuff you guys shared with me. Unfortunately most of it wasn't in the plans  Camped at fall lake, as this was the first time my wife tagged along in a few years, and I thought his would be the most family friendly. After getting setup on Sunday, I launched the boat and goofed around for a bit, but didn't catch anything. My daughter was using worms, and she didn't even get a nibble. Is there not much for bass in fall?   Monday we had to spend some unexpected time in town, making certain purchases. Made it to snowbank late. Trolled for lakers, but only marked ciscoes. Once we started fishing for bass, we caught a few, but then the rain fell. Had it just been me and the 2 older kids, we could have fished through it. But with my wife and the youngest, it wasn't going to happen!   Pretty much the same thing happened on Tuesday. Went to burntside, but the lake was too windy. Went back to town, let the kids play at the park, then had lunch at the boathouse (I highly recommend the motorboat burger). Then we decided to keep it close and simple, and went to miner's pit. Weather got the best of us again. At least this time, my wife caught a few fish. No trout though.   Sometimes there's more to camping trips than good fishing though. We still had lots of fun, and I'm already making some notes for my next Ely trip, which I don't even know when will happen.

      Tommy, can tell by your posts and photos that your dogs are very special to you and Bonnie.  I shed a tear or two while reading this.  I got a kick out of you telling me here after I saw you driving through Cloquet a couple years ago.  You saw my dog riding co-pilot and you mentioned that you also had a dog in the passenger seat (can't remember which one) and Bonnie in the back seat riding with the other dogs.  Good Stuff! Take care, Bill

      I pop in here a few times lately for some humor for myself, it is hard to do. No, very hard to do...but this sight makes me smile sometimes so here ya go...FYI.   Moe Rock passed August 14th  ~  4 days before what would have been his 11th birthday.
      He was our rock in many ways and was one of the smartest retrievers we have ever had in our family in 30 some years.
      If you knew Moe Rock you can understand, remember. He was so strong an fought the cancer just over FOUR MONTHS....
      Pills n tests an more pills an more tests...until well CANCER SUCKS.
      In the end the cancer wins no matter how hard he fought or how hard his TEAM fought with him and for him. Bonnie an I, the special vets an techs at Osceola Animal hospital and the top doc's, students and assistants and at the U of M vet center tried very hard and long to help him in his battle. He never changed, stood tall an strong, bright eyes an devilish smile.
      Truth is we only stayed a couple steps ahead of the cancer that took him that day at 5 PM.
      He was strong right up until he passed with Bonnie an myself holding his paws an making his passing go easy. Bother Polar Bear Boy looking on also.
      Don't make any of this easy saying this, but he was not doing good at 5 am Sunday morning as that cancer stuff just jumped him good this weekend an well,  he lost.
      We never gave in, nor did he. This weekend at the cabin he tried to enjoy himself, DID enjoy it all.  He swam, couple dock jumps, we fished morning runs an sunset, did boat rides, worked on some shore n boat small projects an ate pretty dang well. He was fine until bedtime when we knew an HE knew something was happening.
      Not good. CANCER SUCKS!
      We had a great time, Moe only showing to Bonnie an myself an his Brother Polar Bear Boy he was not feeling to good in the evenings the last week. Very sad. Never forget Moe Rock or his up north name of NoMoeToe given to him by long time guest in my boat from Capser Wyoming the late Mary Cob and his Chisago City area name the Fire Chief gave him of ThreeToeMoe. He was not only special to me but to a host of people in this area an on or around Lake Vermilion for his whole life.
      Good boy, darn good boy. One regret is not everyone that knows of Moe or knows him only online did not get to meet him in person.
      You would have enjoyed him in many ways as we all did.
      Loveable, big nut, sweet, smart, goofy, odd and a total tick that like to start fights with this brothers an then leave them to settle it while he went an ate their food or got best seat on casting deck my big black boat.
      Yup, Moe Rock was a Tick.   Any way....very sad are we, but he fought like tuff darts, a good long fight.
      Never whined a bit, did as was asked an stayed pretty much himself the whole time until that Sunday morning really.
      Not once showing anyone not in family he was sick, real sick. Still loved his truck rides, belly rubs, swimming his pool, wratling with me n Bear, watching TV, Playing on Kendel or computer with Bonnie an just plain being Moe to his brother Bear Boy...big smiles. Fishing, how he love3d fishen...mostly topwater of any kind, but he would go with me anytime, anytime....true fish hound was he, our sweet Moezy.
      I did not tell anyone about Moe rock but Mom Joanne as figured he might kick cancer to the curb an well..........
      Never gave up hope but most times cancer wins in retriever hounds, even our sweet Moe Rock.
      PEACE!
      Very Sad. Now running with his fellow Mallard Island Marauders that crossed over before him, Barney Toonder, Homer J., Bailey, Beckey, Buddy.....plus Jack n Ev the Kats.
      Some good party.....good food, big smiles and all that go with them....all very special. Lov ya Moe......I miss you my boy....rest easy until we meet again.   Keep on rocken!   Tommy

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em
