      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

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.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
