      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 .

NBA 07 Playoffs

Things have been interesting.

I've really enjoyed this Golden State-Dallas series. If Dallas gets knocked out I like the Suns or Spurs chances, Pistons are tough to beat too.

i like watching the bulls. i'm not much an east guy, but the bulls are a fun team. i think the nets could make some noise in the east too. it's a toss up between the suns and spurs. hard to go against the class and poise of san antonio. plus they got big shot bob. if the game is close, gaurd horry. cool.gif

Hey Lookin',

You got to love my Woolly Bullys issuing the "beat down" on D-Wade and Shak-daddy and the rest of the reigning champions. Next up could be a tall order, The Pis-tons!

DAAAAAAAA Bulls!

All I can say is WOW. Golden State got it done tonight. CRUSHED Dallas in the third quarter, left them no chance. Nowitzki, who will probably get the MVP award in the most awkward ceremony ever, finishes with 8 points for the game. Golden State will be pretty confident heading into either Utah or Houston.

It was great watching Dallas lose last night. I cannot stand Mark Cuban 1 bit.

The Wariors did a great job on Dirk. Sometimes when Dirk got the ball he would fire it up there just to get a shot. If the Warriors stay healthy(Baron Davis strained hamstring)I think they can get past Houston or Utah. Yao will never be able to keep up with the pace the Warriors play at and sometimes McGrady taking questionable shots feeds right into the running game of the Warriors. I like Utah's roster(Williams,Boozer,Okur,AK-47,Harpring, Giricek, Millsap, and Fisher). It would be a good series between Utah and Golden St.. One thing that Golden St. doesn't have is a deep bench(they may go 7 deep with Al Harrington) so if the series goes deep watch out for fatigue to be a factor.

Dallas had NO inside presence and no rhythem whatsoever. After Stackouse cooled down in the 3d quarter, the demise of the Mavericks was on.

For Golden State, I hope they remeber that if you live by the 3, you also die by it. I cannot se how they can continue shooting that hot in three point land. If they can keep feeding the cutting players to the post, they are a dangerous team.

Hey Lookin,

I went to a football camp at University of Iowa prior to my freshman year in college at NIU. My brother in law played football and basketball at Loras, he was a DuHawk! It just goes to show you that it is a small world out there (but I wouldn't want to paint it)

how can you guys hate cuban? sure he is a little over bearing, but he wants to win more than any other owner in sports. after stienbrenner, that is. players want to play for dallas now after years of being a joke, they are now a league power because of him. i could do with a little less air time for his goofy face, but he would make a winner wherever he goes.

that being said, i kinda like GS's chances to get passed the next team. the biggest problem will be the big men. either yao or boozer should be able to have their way in the paint.

Spurs pulled out the win after being behind all game. I like San Antonio's chances to go all the way. Pretty strange ending to Game 4, made for some drama in game 5, but San Antonio won. Kind of like Sir Charles said, they are the Stepford Wives of the NBA. They just go about things businesslike and win.

The suspensions may have ruined this series. It will be hard, but I hope the Suns win the next 2 and end the Spurs season.

I agree that the suspensions ruined the series. I dont agree with the suspensions with amarie and Diaw. If they are going to inforce that you can't go on the court while you are on the bench they should inforce it to everyone, which they didn't. Tim Duncan also came of the bench and onto the court earlier in the game and Bowen had to bring him back to the bench.

Is it just me or is anyone else tired of the Spurs getting special treatment?

Also has anyone else noticed how cheap of basketball player bowen is? I recently have been watching clips of him playing and I think he hurts more people than anyone else in the NBA.

Just my opinions

Spurs won. They are playing great basketball. I know everyone is gonna cry about missing players for game 5 but that had no effect on game 6. The spurs have had the suns' number in the regular and post season and that trend continued tonight. I think the Spurs will beat Utah in 5.

LeBron really turned it on. I saw the 48 point game and saw things unravel for Detroit in Cleveland in game 6.

I expect San Antonio to take care of LeBron and company in 5 or 6 games. For the sake of the game, I hope they do. I like LeBron, he's a team player, fills out all of his stats, but 1 person being more important than 5 doesn't seem right to the basketball purist in me.

What do you mean 1 person more important than 5??? Michael Jordan was the man (more important than any player) but leaned on his teamates to lift him and help him when he couldn't do it alone and that is what I see in the Cavs right now with Lebron......I hate the way the Spurs play ball because it is boring but they should beat the inexperienced Cavs.....unless Lebron takes it to even another level and totally dominates but even then I have a hard time seeing the Cavs winning.....For the sake of the game and the NBA they hope Lebron can push the Spurs to game 6 but I think the worst thing to happen was the Spurs getting back to the finals cause nobody likes to watch them!!!

i love watching fundamentally sound basketball. and that's why i like to watch the spurs. duncan has the best post game since mc cale. great footwork, hands and head for the game. then you throw in a gutsy pg like parker and a defender like bowen, a clutch sooter like horry, and all around players like ginobli and finley. what is not to like about the spurs. do you want to watch 4 statues and one great player? i guess that is why i like college ball over the nba cool.gif

the spurs are good no question.....Duncan is great but could be the most boring player ever to watch score 20 with 10 rebounds.....Ginobli is fun to watch at times......Parker is a good PG but I can't stand everytime the spurs play on TV they have the camera on f-n Eva Longoria mad.gif if i wanted to look at her i would watch her tv show....don't care about her during an NBA game mad.gif....Horry shouldn't even be playing right now after that hit on Nash!!! I would rather watch Lebron dominate anyday than watch the Spurs play their boring basketball!!!

      i went out for a couple hours yesterday looking for grouse.  The buddy i was with never has been hunting for grouse or woodcock.  We only saw 1 grouse with no chance for a shot but got both woodcock that flushed.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has produced six new, state-of-the-art maps that will make it easier and safer for people to explore, hunt, and recreate in state forests.   “The DNR has updated six state forests with 53 more to go,” said Forrest Boe, director of the DNR Forestry Division. “This five-year effort will include updating maps for all of Minnesota’s state forests.” State forest users now have two maps options. A geoPDF map will allow users to download a map onto a mobile device using a variety of map apps and then track their location as a blue dot on the screen. The new user-friendly, paper maps highlight the unique recreation features of each forest and include pop-out maps for popular campgrounds and day-use areas. “The little blue dot that appears on the map on my phone goes with me whether I’m on or off-trail,” said Laura Duffey, DNR state forest map project coordinator. “This feature lets people know exactly where they are in a state forest—no more getting lost.” The maps are also more detailed than previous versions and highlight the endless recreation opportunities in state forests, such as hiking, mountain biking, birding, berry picking, cross-country skiing, hunting, and horseback, ATV and snowmobile riding. Many state forests also offer campgrounds, fishing piers, boat launches, swimming beaches, and picnic areas. The six new maps are available in time for fall hunting and cover more than 240,000 acres of state forest land and thousands of miles of trails. New geoPDF and paper maps are now available for: Paul Bunyan State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Badoura State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Croix State Forest in Pine County Huntersville State Forest in Cass, Hubbard and Wadena counties Lyons State Forest in Wadena County. Chengwatana State Forest in Pine and Chisago counties The Paul Bunyan and Badoura state forests are popular spots for hunters. Combined, they contain two campgrounds and day-use areas, four off-highway vehicle trails, five wildlife management areas (WMA), two ruffed grouse management areas, and four state game refuges. They also have hiking, biking, snowmobiling and skiing trails. The Huntersville and Lyons state forests are popular with hunters. Each state forest contains four WMAs and several miles of trails and roads for off-highway vehicles. Additionally, the Huntersville State Forest offers two campgrounds, a horse campground, and 24 miles of designated horse trails. The St. Croix State Forest offers a variety of year-round recreation opportunities. It has 20 miles of horseback trails and a horse campground with 56 campsites. In the winter snowmobilers can enjoy 42 miles of trails while in the summer mountain bikers can cruise 25 miles of trails. The Boulder Campground and day-use area has 22 secluded campsites and access to Rock Lake for swimming, fishing and boating. The Chengwatana State Forest contains the Snake River Campground and several miles of off-highway motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle trails. Three state water trails run through the forest: Kettle River, Snake River, and St. Croix River. Snowmobliers also use the Matthew Lourey State Trail, which runs through the forest. The new maps also shows locations of National Park Service campsites along the St. Croix River.Digital, geoPDF maps are available on the state forest’s webpage at www.mndnr.gov/stateforests. People can get a free paper map at a local DNR office or the DNR Info Center by sending an email to info.dnr@state.mn.us or calling 888-646-6367, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
