      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 .

I would love to have Brett play for the Vikes as I would bet he has some very good years left.

I think Farve could help the vikings also. Just two problems. One I'm still not a fan of favre even though he is a good quarterback (to bad he has a healthy ego to go along with his talent.) And two, the Vikings didn't give up enough in the mock trade (ala Hershel Walker) grin.gif

If Favre ever came to the Vikes ( NEVER WILL HAPPEN ) we would have to get the Packers 1st & 2nd round draft picks for the next 3 years just for taking him . Even at that I would be a Lions fan until he left .

I think you're the only one here with a biased opinion of Farve. Thinking he is God gift to football. I and many others have stated he is a good QB just not the best ever like you seem to think. Me being biased would be saying something like Fran Tarkenton is the best QB ever. Which many Vikings fans may think but I don't. Just because I'm a Viking fan I know their are better players on other teams.

I think Favre would have a few years left if he had more talent around him, Offensive line to protect him better and a good runing back and better WR's and he doesn't have that with the Packers. This will be his last year with the pack, I think he will finally retire.

If Trent Green is only worth a 4th, Farve is worth a 2nd or 3rd at best.

All Brad Johnson needed was 3 great wide receivers, a great offensive line, a really good tight end, a great running back, a good blocking fullback, a smart offensive coordinator, a brilliant head coach, and a stronger arm, and he could have lit up the score board last year.

Is that too much to ask for as a veteran QB?

I think not.

I'm just having fun with you guys Slot.....My comment was based on the fact that a Vikings fan thought Favre could help and he would welcome him, not that he is the best quarterback ever (that is the other thread were I said that grin.gif )...........I think Favre warrants a better trade than that though

We could keep the same guys on our team right now and put Favre on the team and we still wouldn't make the playoffs IMO. I don't even think Peyton could bring us to the playoffs this year. So to give up whatever it would take to get Favre for one year would be stupid. I don't care how good a QB you are if you don't have time to throw you will stink. We can run the ball because the left side of the line can block but it takes a whole line to block to get a pass off.

Good point Slot, but you also have to think about what a player can do with out doing anything.....ie. Moss, T.O., Vick, McNabb(a few years ago). You have to play them honest and you have to respect what they might do. Moss and T.O. get double teamed and open up somebody else. Vick and McNabb can run all over you at any time. Favre is still good enough that you have to respect his arm and his ability to create a play. I do agree with you and your point about the line. It will be evident this year in Oakland.

I agree with that except for the QB position. Unless it's a Vick type running QB. Then you always have to respect that. Favre has a big arm but it takes time to get off a long pass. So no blocking no long passes thus it would take Favre/Manning/Brady out of the equation. QB's that are statues need time. By the way...what players did Moss open up last year? The Raiders QB's had no time so it didn't matter.

I'll give you that, Moss didn't open anyone up because they didn't have anyone one to open up. Plus no QB on top of it......you are absolutly correct about the line, thats why the Browns made Joe the second pick, it is one of the most important portions of the team. The Packers showed some improvment last year and will look better this year. The Vikings will be able to run again this year, especially if Peterson stays healthy. Will either team be able to pass? Only time will tell.

POLICE REPORT:

Brad Childress's House was Egged

Minneapolis police reported that some individual attempted to "egg"

Brad Childress's house last night.

An empty egg carton was recovered at the scene. Two eggs hit Mr. Childress's house, 3 eggs went over his house and hit his neighbor's back door,

2 eggs hit the houses of each of his next door neighbors, and the remaining 3 eggs were found broken on the ground near the carton from where the

individual threw them.

Looking at what was hit, police officials say they are considering Tavarius Jackson as the primary suspect.

I was going to say the last time I heard that joke it was Dante. I'm sure the next old joke Shiner will throw out is the vikings have terrorist on their team with pictures of Moss aka Osama Bin Complainin, Dante aka Osama Bin Fumblin, and Denny Green, Osama Bin Losin.

Even with all the Vikings jokes at least we can say we don't have a brown streak on our goal post. Something we can actually thank Moss for.

Here you go Shiner a couple of jokes for you:

Q:Why do the trees in Milwaukee lean to the south?

A:Because Green Bay blows and Chicago sucks.

Q:What is the diffrence between a Packer fan and a baby?

A:The baby will stop whinning after awhile.

Q:Did you here about the Packer fan that died at a pie eating contest?

A:The cow kicked him in the head!

Q:What do you call a 350 pound Packer fan?

A:An anorexic!

Q:What do you call a beautiful girl in Green Bay?

A:A tourist.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
