      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 .

WAY?

So how do you think the vikes will do?

I think they wont make the playoffs, but I do think the offense will be better then last year. I think jackson will be wild, but I think he will get lucky at times also.

I think 9-6

Well, I gaurantee your 9-6 prediction is wrong!

Mostly because they play 16 games a year... tongue.gif

Get ready for the announcer's call, just like "Cunningham to Moss", or "Cunningham to Carter"...this year it's going to be "Brooks Bollinger to Todd Lowber"! smile.gif

7-9 record this year. All the fanwagons here in Minnesota will be asking for a new coach all year long.

Didn't they forget to make a draft pick one year? Anything is possible with the Vikes. Being a Packer fan I don't I have much to say as we are probably in worse shape.

4-12

We will be wishing Les Steckel was our coach. I just can't get excited listening to Childress. I have never seen a coach so mono-tone in all my life. They really should test his pulse to see if he is alive.

as much as i hate to say it, 3-13. Why havent we been looking into the Trent Green situation? Hmm? we have cap money, he wants to leave, we need a veteran QB, but not a thing from us? Just tells me they are not committed to win. If you think for a moment you are gonna win the super bowl with TJack in 07, you are smoking something. Mebbe 4 years from now, but not next year.

I will go with another 6-10 for the Vikes this year.

I will also say that Detroit has a good chance of winning the division at 8-8, tying the Bears.

NFC North is not looking too tough. Just my .02.

I am not a Brad Childress fan. I heard that he would not let Brad Johnson call an audible. He could only change the play from run left or run right. We have offensive coordinators to call the plays. Them might win 6 games.

Two wins over the everyones beloved Packers is the viking 'superbowl'. Other teams aspire for more, but that's 'ok'.

He means beating the cheeseweasles twice on the way to winning the SB . Beating the Packers doesn't really mean the same as it used to , maybe cause they suck . Don't get me wrong , I'll take a Packer beat down any day but its not enough . 12-4 , 13-3 , 14-2 would be great , but its gotta be on the way to a SB win . If we don't do it this year ....... then there will be next year . Or the year after . Or the year after . laugh.gif It will happen . grin.gif

I agree, we will eventualy get a super bowl win! I look at last years Bears team, not a strong QB, recievers were average, okay O-line, decent special teams, and a great D. Now to me that doesn't look like a team that would make a run at the super bowl, but it happened. Besides the Bears D, the viks don't look that much different. From the sounds of it, T-Jack has been taking his role as a leader very seriously and his teamates are begining to have some faith in him. So God willing, that offense clicks and we get a little better on pass defence, I think we can be a sleeper team and thats alright by me. Let the Maddens and Theismans worship those who look good on paper and Green Bays QB, who they say year in an year out is such a warrior and try to justify his 5 int, 1 TD, 92 yds passing day just because Lombardi used to coach the packers. You wait, middle of the season Madden ain't gonna know what to talk about because Farve will be done due to "injury" confused.gif- sorry, I got alittle of track there. Anyways, I am really looking forward to this season, as I look forward to every season. Footballs in my blood and I will always bleed purple and gold! grin.gif

      Did you find any? Let me know where you are located and contact info. Also what size is preferred?

      A popular method that I've seen is to use a slip bobber with minnows, leeches, or crawlers. Four-mile bar seems to be a popular destination but also try working along weed edges. You probably noticed the weedline is about 14' - 15' down so working those edges can be productive. Just my thoughts.

      The purpose for having fuses is to protect the wires and/or downstream devices from over-current situations. When an over-current situation exists the wires can be exposed to higher current than what they are rated to handle and the resulting heat will likely melt the insulation and possibly cause it to burst into flame, which can spread to an on-board fire destroying your boat and everything in it.  A fuse that repeatedly blows when replaced is a good indicator that there is a situation that needs to be resolved. You need to find out what is causing the over-current situation and resolve it. Putting in a higher rated fuse does NOT solve the problem. The wires are rated to a maximum current level and the over-sized fuse will allow excessive current to flow over the wires, which is no better than just getting rid of the fuses. Do not do this.

      Have a great retirement Ace. Really glad to hear you'll still stay on the forum!!

      When CigarGuy first showed up on these forums, I stopped by and introduced myself but I think that he was either on his dock or just hopping into the boat. I haven't visually seen him in a few years, but I did see the Mrs. Cigar Guy and another assembling a sitting bench earlier this summer! Some day I'll stop by to share a cocktail.   As for the people boating in close, here are my two Vermilion observations: 1) There are known spots on Vermilion. People go to those whether there are zero boats or ten boats there. If I am on a known spot, I don't get upset when others show up and fish close. If I am working a non-typical spot and others show up because they see you catch a fish, I do get a bit testy as well. 2) Navigation channels tend to hold fish, attracting boats that are fishing and boats that are moving. As a fisherman, I accept that people are going to boat close by in established navigation paths. I do get upset when people go through tight areas on plane or even just below it. I always try to follow a no-wake policy when going through tight areas such as Fectos or others. Our place is in Black Bay and the pinch between Black Bay and the Partridge River typically has boats. I'll come off plane and go nice and slow past boats. Treat others as you want to be treated. Preaching to the choir....I know
    • rundrave
      move back to SD and then buy the boat You dont need to drop $50k on a new boat just to enjoy the water. I have just as much fun fishing about of a super old $500 aluminum boat with a trolling motor as I do fishing in a fully decked out Ranger. There are of course pros and cons to each but you can fish out of both and that's all that matters. And nothing is better than getting away from shore fishing it just opens up so many more opportunities to catch fish.

      TJ Hooker. Was Heather Thomas in that one? Ahhh, I looked it up and realized it was Heather Locklear. Heather Thomas was on The Fall Guy. I liked that show better even though it didn't have Captain Kirk. What were we talking about? The Landing?

      Enjoy retirement Ace. You've contributed a lot of great information to this forum over the years. Hopefully retirement means that you get to do more of the stuff you want instead of the things that you need to do! Thanks! Skunked Again

      The city of Grand Rapids will hold its fifth special deer hunt this fall in an attempt to further reduce deer numbers within the city limits. The hunt is open to archery, firearms and muzzleloader hunters during the regular season dates for those hunts. In order to participate in the hunt, a hunter must purchase a regular license for the type of hunt they want to participate in through the DNR’s electronic licensing system (ELS), and then may purchase up to four bonus permits through the ELS to take additional antlerless deer. The city hunt limit is five deer and hunters may take only one antlered buck. Muzzleloader and firearms hunters will have to apply for their special hunt permit through the ELS by Thursday, Sept. 7. Special hunt numbers are 931 for firearms, and 946 for muzzleloader. Firearms or muzzleloader hunters who want to hunt in a lottery area and participate in the Grand Rapids special hunt must make a choice whether to apply for an antlerless permit or participate in the special hunt; they cannot apply for both. Special hunt permits for the archery season hunt can be obtained at the Grand Rapids Police Department at any time. After buying an archery hunting license, hunters will be issued a permit to possess up to four bonus tags, which they can buy through the ELS. Deer taken in the special hunt must be registered under the special hunt numbers (995 for archery, 931 for firearms, and 946 for muzzleloader) and not the larger permit area 179. A deer taken outside of the city hunt boundary cannot be registered under the city hunt number. Most of the land in the allowed hunting areas is privately owned. Hunters must get permission directly from private landowners to hunt or cross private land. A map depicting allowed hunting areas is available on the city of Grand Rapids website at www.cityofgrandrapidsmn.com under the map tab. Itasca County plat books and online public records can help prospective hunters identify landowners in order to seek permission to hunt. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Kadunce River State Wayside on Minnesota State Highway 61 north of Grand Marais, Minnesota will be partially closed for three to four weeks beginning in mid-August while a habitat improvement project takes place in Kadunce Creek. During the construction, visitors may still park at the site and use the picnic tables, but the access spur to the Superior Hiking Trail will be closed and visitors are asked to avoid the construction area. Persons wanting to access the Superior Hiking Trail can do so at the access point at County Road 14; about two miles northeast of the Kadunce River. The project involves restoring, maintaining and updating habitat improvements installed in the lower 0.3 miles of the stream. Work will maintain high-quality habitat for juvenile steelhead and resident brook trout, and maintain fishing opportunities and sites for anglers using the stream during the open-water months. The habitat work is funded by the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Fund, and is being led by Trout Unlimited with technical assistance and design support by DNR Fisheries. The Kadunce River State Wayside is one of five state waysides along the North Shore that are managed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). These waysides are generally parcels of land too small to be full-fledged state parks, but with cultural or natural resources that exceed most highway waysides and rest areas. Questions about the Kadunce River State Wayside project can be directed to Christa Maxwell at the DNR’s Two Harbors area parks and trails office at 218-834-1429. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
