      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 .

Poor refs

Recommended Posts

What a sad bunch of refs. They could not control the kindergardan class. How much times did they favor the Ducks and let them get away with anything.

Its to bad Boogard didnt play more to stop the foolishness. The refs are lucky no one was hurt bad.

The Wild beat the pants of the Ducks tonight and took them to school.

I agree the refs let it get that way but you've got to blame the ducks also. There is a differnce between chippy and flat out cheap. Kunitz pulls Burns hair in game 3, I mean what is that? Then at the end of this one Hall is in a straight up fair fight in which their guy dropped the gloves first and one of the Ducks skates the length of the ice to be the third man in. Add to that as this is going on May sucker punches Johnson. May had also punched Boogaard earlier with no call but of course won't drop the gloves. May could fight back in the day but is washed up now.

None of the ducks will drop them with Boogard....they all saw him break Fedoruk's face earlier in the year.

Harvey Lee,

What time of the year is Zebra hunting start?

I could have bagged three of those (Contact Us Please) tonight!

I wish that I was 50lbs lighter and 20 years younger so I could have been.................Oh sorry guys I drifted off to sleep there and was dreaming.

But them (Contact Us Please) refs must have been brothers of Stevie Wonder, oh if they could only sing! Both of those Duck players better be suspended for the remainder of the series!

We could have a Wild game feed with Zebras and Ducks!

GO WILD

Fish On!!!

lots of bad calls last night. Veilleux going to the penalty box after he was punched in the side of the face. Radivojevic- goal not allowed for his skate in the crease (you cant call that anymore anymore). Brad May and Thornton both should be suspended for a few games especially May for the sucker punch. Don't remember who layed the check from behind on Walz, horrible referring last night.

Well there was alot of bad calls last night, its a good thing it didnt cost us the game in the end, But lets hope johnson is ok! I think the wild won the game last night because they were more aggressive, getting in their goalies face, and protecting backstrom more, in which they werent doing in the first three games. I think the wild just got under their skin after finishing their checks more and playing a little rougher, and the ducks got frustrated and played poorly! It makes for a fun game to watch when the refs swallow their whistles, but they need to do it evenly, and call some of the severe shots, or it will get out of hand. I think the new refs wont let this happen in game 5, and there is to much on the line for the wild to go out and look for revenge. There should be a couple game suspensions after last nights game, and Im sure some fines handed out. I think burns is going to be fun to watch this guy has some guts, and some good swings also!

I will leave the refs alone for now cause everyone else has pointed out what they did wrong..As for the Wild, they have found a way to get to the ducks and beat them...Now it got out of hand last night but I think the Wild have a great chance now to step up and win this series if they keep playing tough and going to the net. When the ducks get upset they are useless...The Wild play great when things get tough...The next game will be good and I know the commissioner will be watching the reffering also....Which should keep things in control and the Wild will know what to do to win...Now they need to do it.

They've been getting screwed all series (all season for that matter) with calls but last night was just ridiculous. Hopefully Johnnson is ok and maybe all of that cheap, cowardly Ducks play and the one-sided officiating will just pump the Wild up even more.

May should be hoping he gets suspended, otherwise the Boogeyman will be his best friend in game 5... grin.gif.

Maybe it would be better if May ran into the boogie man instead of a longer suspension grin.gif

I hear that!

Suspensions of marginal players only do so much, Brad May for a lost Kim Johannson is not equal. Power plays as a result of antagonistic play, which Boogaard excels at drawing, are the key. Plus, I wouldn't mind seeing Boogey lay down the law, if you will!

I agree the refs let it get out of hand but its about time the wild stepped up and punched the ducks in the mouth. The Ducks were pretty rattled by the 3rd. I hope the wild open Game 5 the same way.

      Recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) is anticipated to open on several Schedule I Lakes in the Grand Rapids fisheries work area beginning in late October, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule II Lakes, will open Nov. 3. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Anticipated opening dates are as follows: Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec.3, for Deer (near Deer River), and Turtle (3.5 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Side and South Sturgeon (1.75 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Big Balsam and Nashwauk (1.75 inch mesh). Schedule II Lakes Lakes open to whitefish and cisco sport netting Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10: Bass (north basin). Ball Club. Bowstring*. Little Bowstring. Cut Foot Sioux*. Deer (near Effie). Grave. Jessie. Maple. Pokegama. Round (near Squaw Lake –1.75 inch mesh). Rush Island. Sand (near Max)*. Swan.  (1.75 inch mesh) Twin Lakes (near Marble). Winnibigoshish* and Little Winnibigoshish* (1.75 inch mesh). *Bowstring, Cut Foot Sioux, Sand, Winnibigoshish and Little Winnibigoshish are designated infested waters because of the presence of faucet snails or zebra mussels. Nets and equipment used in infested waters may not be used in any other waterbody unless they have been dried for ten days or frozen for two days. Fishing regulations require that: Netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. A person may use only one gill net, not exceeding 100 feet in length and 3 feet in width. One end of net must have a pole, stake, or buoy projecting at least two feet above the surface of the water or ice. Nets must have an identification tag attached near the first float of the end that is projecting from the surface of the water or ice. Identification tags must be a minimum of 2 ½ inches by 5/8 inch permanently bearing the name and address of the owner. Identification tags for marking nets are provided by the owner. Nets may not be set after sunset or raised before sunrise. All gill nets must be set and lifted by the licensee only. Anyone assisting in the taking of whitefish or ciscoes must have proper licensing. Nets must be tended at least once every 24 hours and all gamefish and non-target species must be immediately released from the net. A net may not be set in any water deeper than six feet. A net may not be set within 50 feet of another net. Minimum gill net mesh size shall be no less than 1-3/4 or 3-1/2 inch stretch measure depending on the lake (see full list of lake and size regulations online). Nets used in designated infested waters must be dried for a minimum of 10 days or frozen for 2 days before using in a different water body. Nets should be dried for 10 days or frozen for 2 before moving from any lake to another. Nets used in spiny water flea and/or zebra mussel infested waters should be not used in any other waterbody Nets should be transported in sealed container. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be bought or sold. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be used as bait. Within the Leech Lake Reservation boundaries, the possession limit for whitefish taken by sport gill-netting is 25, and the possession limit for ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting is 50. Net placement should not inhibit use of the lake by other boaters. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Grand Rapids area office at 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or call 218-328-8836.

      It seemed cheap to me for all the functionality.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.

            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.
