      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 .

No kidding about the Packers. With Vikings playing the AFC east last year, it should be 3 years min, if ever, before we have to stomach watching him playing against us.

I bet he does well for NE.

Look for 90 catches, 1400 yards and 14 TD's from Mr. Moss this year. If Belichek can't get production out of him nobody can.

How the mighty have fallen. 2 years ago Moss was worth a #7 overall pick plus a starting linebacker. Now he's a 4th rounder? N.E. always seems to get these star players when they're value is at the low point of there career.

You must have him on your fantasy team, Moss has only 11 td's last two years and 1500 yards. You are looking at career numbers for him, someone who has lost more then a step. Brady is not know for his Deep arm so I think you would be lucky to see half of them numbers. Actually I don't even see him doing that and I am a Brady fan (fantasy). Wait and see, just glad the vikes did not bring him back. This will be his tenth season in the league, Somebody is getting old ( not me of course!)

It just depends upon his health. If he's healthy, he will light it up. He has something to prove and nobody wants to have to deal with a healthy Moss with a chip on his shoulder... His numbers in Oakland are greatly affected by a couple nagging injuries and one of the worst offenses in the entire league. Its safe to say that things will be different in NE if he's at all healthy.

I don't have him on my fantasy team. I just think this is his last chance and Belichek will either get him to perform or he will be cut. If he performs he will be very good again.

I heard on the radio that when Moss was working out for the Patriots last week he ran a 4.3 40 yard dash. He hasn't lost a step and if he did he is still way faster than most.

But...as will always happen with Moss, he will be double covered most of the time. His numbers have dropped not just because of injury, but also because the threat is covered better and leaves other shorter patterns open. That is what happened in MN...Moss opened up other things like a running game and shorter passing routes. spread the defense out even more and many more things open up as well.

Is he still a threat? You bet...but I don't think it is in the same manner. Brady will find other open receivers and move the ball down the field easily with shorter passes. Moss just opens up other avenues. Same thing with the other wide-receiver "dolts" out there who complain about not getting the ball enough and the me, me, me, attitude.

Well worth the gain versus what they paid for him from the perspective of NE. I think the same can be said for Jackson to San Fran.

How many fourth rounders actually end up starting in the NFL and how soon. Usually they are developmental players that take a year or two so NE basically traded away a roster spot or a developmental slot for a likely starter and maybe more. I like the chance and I'm not a NE rube. If he becomes a cancer in the locker room cutting him is a lot easier when he only cost you that fourth rounder.

He may make Donte Stallworth a whole lot better since Moss can stretch the field so maybe the Patriots benefit even if Moss doesn't end up with great numbers. (never worked for the other Oakland receivers so that is just a guess!)

I had seen on a couple of sites yesterday that the Pats gave a 4th rounder this year and a 1st rounder next year. Anybody else see that? If that is the case the Raiders got a pretty good deal, they gave us a 1st and 7th round, and Harris.

4.3 was reported as being in training session, but no one seems to know where.. Now I have seen where it was 4.29 time, just keeps getting better...

Just a 4th rounder this year (the 110 pick over all)

Nah, I doubt he will reach any where close to those numbers.. Brady SPREADS the ball too much! Besides, Moss is old now and a little slower then he use to be... Patriots, if i might add, also has a good defense if they can stay healthy. Thus, Moss won't be used too much because they won't be throwing many deep balls because they will attempt to run down the clock with their awesome running game....What will Moss do for the Patriots? He will lessen the number of times opposing defense stacks up to stop the run.. There will be less blitzs, and Moss will open up the running game even more.. Moss will also help other wr get better because he will draw double team coverage, perhaps even triple team lol... This is what Moss will do for the Patriots.

I agree with that analysis. He still is a decent fantasy pick though. He'll have better numbers than he had with the atrocious Raiders.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...
