      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 .

Michael Vick

Recommended Posts

Can't stand him, never have. I am an old school QB fan- the QB gets paid throw the ball, not tuck and run 4 out of every 5 downs. Now all this dog stuff comes out- could this be a situation where the NFL could step in and ban him for a year, or worse for him, a situation where the judges get involved (I think the FBI already is) and he sits in the clink for awhile? Whats everyone else think of this genius-

He really hasn't had a lot of guys to throw to down there. Crumpler and that is about it. Some games he looks like god and some games he looks like dog crap. Way to incosistent and inaccurate. For the dog thing, if he is guilty and it looks like he is, lock him up. He has money so probably going to get off like every other celeb/athlete.

he has had some guys that other qb's could do ok with. peerless price was good in buffalo, plus back to back 1st rd. picks in roddy white and michael jenkins, and crumpler, finneran is ok. now they signed joe horn, so maybe that will help. i agree that i have never been a fan of vick, and after the video that SC showed on dog-fighting i would like to do to him what those dogs do to each other. that stuff is crazy.

I seen last night on the news that a search warrant was denied for a house that he owns or used to own in Virginia. I guess there could be up to 30 dog carcases there. I wonder why it was denied?

I was watching ESPN last night and they were showing clips of dog fights. It almost made me sick to my stomach. Vick is innocent until proven guilty. Regardless, whoever is responsible for this should have the full extent of the law thrown at them.

In his first start 2 seasons ago Matt Schaub threw for over 300 yards and 3 TD's against the patriots with the same recievers Vick had. Too the point Vick had NEVER had a 3 TD game. Schaub does it in his first start. Vick=joke.

The dog fighting thing is absolutely sickening. If he's convicted, he should definitely do hard time and be suspended from the league for at least a year.

As for Vick's talent, I think he's an athlete rather than a quarterback. When you're top target is the tight end (Crumpler), then it shows that he can't put the ball downfield on a consistient basis.

Obviously he's not going to be convicted of this and do any hard "LOL" jail time.

Him and his brother Marcus are worthless, sorry, but true. I am obviously not an NFL qb, but neither is he. Dilfer had a better arm than this POS, and I can't stand the guy.

The guy is a tremendous athlete with a cannon for an arm but his accuracy and decision making is lacking for a starting NFL quarterback. Yes his freinds are probably taking advantage of him but his off the field decisions shed a light to his real character. First his "water bottle" incident at that airport and now the alledged dog fighting business. He had to have knowledge of that. I'm sure as the investigation continues one of his "friends" will roll over on him. If he is indeed guilty then I hope the commisioner treats him the same type punishment as the gave to the Bears Tank Williams and a few others. I like thier new personal conduct policies.....

Pier,

I would say half wrong. He will be convicted, but serving time as an athlete is whole different ballgame. He may get "Paris Hilton" time!!

Both Vic brothers are just football playing thugs. Can you believe the younger Vic actually wound up on a NFL team with his past record? Just shows you all the Psychological testing they do on these guys dont mean Shnit. If they can play ball teams will sign them no matter what.

Northlander, im not sure they can play ball. They are just overhyped like many affletes these days.... I like his halfasssed apology-" Im sorry for the distraction this caused" That statement shows zero responsibilty. He's basicaly saying sorry everyone blew it out of proportion. I quit watching the NFL because of players like him.

This is a federal indictment. Usually they don't bring someone in unless they've got some darn good evidence for getting a conviction. This won't be a "Paris Hilton" ordeal, but he will get less than what the maximum is...much less (if convicted).

By the way....Vick is no qb....he's an "x-back". He can run like he!!, but his passes and decision making aren't worth a darn. I bet Tiki Barber had a better passer rating that Vick does! shocked.gifgrin.gif

WOW! I think that the Vick dog fighting fiasco and then these two nimrods sticking up for him is the final straw for me having any respect for the NFL. I thought Clinton Portis might have had some class, I was way wrong on that one. What an (Contact Us Please).

Thanks for posting that B.I.D.

A friend that has pleaded guilty to charges linked with Vick has now said that Vick was financing the action at his house. I take it as Vick is a lying scumbag saying that he had no idea what was going on at his house- sounds like he very well knew what was going on and had a big part in it.

      Is it always impossible to get a hold of Jeff?? It took me like 8 calls to get a hold of him, brought my boat down after I got a hold of him. I told him I was hoping to use it this weekend for one last trip...I've called him multiple times for an update and he never answers... Seems odd for a business.

      Recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) is anticipated to open on several Schedule I Lakes in the Grand Rapids fisheries work area beginning in late October, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule II Lakes, will open Nov. 3. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Anticipated opening dates are as follows: Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec.3, for Deer (near Deer River), and Turtle (3.5 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Side and South Sturgeon (1.75 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Big Balsam and Nashwauk (1.75 inch mesh). Schedule II Lakes Lakes open to whitefish and cisco sport netting Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10: Bass (north basin). Ball Club. Bowstring*. Little Bowstring. Cut Foot Sioux*. Deer (near Effie). Grave. Jessie. Maple. Pokegama. Round (near Squaw Lake –1.75 inch mesh). Rush Island. Sand (near Max)*. Swan.  (1.75 inch mesh) Twin Lakes (near Marble). Winnibigoshish* and Little Winnibigoshish* (1.75 inch mesh). *Bowstring, Cut Foot Sioux, Sand, Winnibigoshish and Little Winnibigoshish are designated infested waters because of the presence of faucet snails or zebra mussels. Nets and equipment used in infested waters may not be used in any other waterbody unless they have been dried for ten days or frozen for two days. Fishing regulations require that: Netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. A person may use only one gill net, not exceeding 100 feet in length and 3 feet in width. One end of net must have a pole, stake, or buoy projecting at least two feet above the surface of the water or ice. Nets must have an identification tag attached near the first float of the end that is projecting from the surface of the water or ice. Identification tags must be a minimum of 2 ½ inches by 5/8 inch permanently bearing the name and address of the owner. Identification tags for marking nets are provided by the owner. Nets may not be set after sunset or raised before sunrise. All gill nets must be set and lifted by the licensee only. Anyone assisting in the taking of whitefish or ciscoes must have proper licensing. Nets must be tended at least once every 24 hours and all gamefish and non-target species must be immediately released from the net. A net may not be set in any water deeper than six feet. A net may not be set within 50 feet of another net. Minimum gill net mesh size shall be no less than 1-3/4 or 3-1/2 inch stretch measure depending on the lake (see full list of lake and size regulations online). Nets used in designated infested waters must be dried for a minimum of 10 days or frozen for 2 days before using in a different water body. Nets should be dried for 10 days or frozen for 2 before moving from any lake to another. Nets used in spiny water flea and/or zebra mussel infested waters should be not used in any other waterbody Nets should be transported in sealed container. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be bought or sold. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be used as bait. Within the Leech Lake Reservation boundaries, the possession limit for whitefish taken by sport gill-netting is 25, and the possession limit for ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting is 50. Net placement should not inhibit use of the lake by other boaters. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Grand Rapids area office at 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or call 218-328-8836.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.

            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.
