      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 .

Okposo Staying!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

fishing tech

Kyle Okposo has decided to stay 1 more year and in my opinion he may just dominate the WCHA. This should help the Gophers this year. What are your thoughts????

I'll believe it when I see him on the ice.

I don't think he'll dominate.

North Dakota should be the favorite.

Personally I don't like him and wish he left. I think he plays too cocky and selfish. ND will be tough.

He didn't play with the same intensity the second half of last season. A guy with his speed and skill should be lighting it up.

Yah I think No Dak will be tough too. And most freshmen tail off in the second half, especially if they go to the world Jr championships in December.

what's with all the negatives? He was a freshman last year who put up good numbers, so why the put downs? I guess some of you think there is no time for development, it's kind of sad. I would hate to be your child. I personally am very happy he's staying. He's a great player that will help the gophs.

Man was Okposo impressive in the first half of last year! He made some plays as a freshman that most seniors couldn't dream of making. Anyone remember the Mankato State play? Teams were adjusting to him in the second half of last year and thus his lower #'s. If they keep some talent on his line, he should be a beast next year.

And I agree that ND is the team to beat next year, but the Goph's should make it interesting through the regular season.

It is on the Gopher hockey website. Lucia announced it.

Although he did try to do too much with the puck at times, I think Okposo was our best offensive threat last year. He's got size and skills, he just needs to learn when to use them. It's going to hurt to lose Carman for the first half of the season. I loved watching him and the whole third line out-hustle opposing lines.

Goligowski has left. Will anyone else leave???????? I thought after Pittsburgs free agent signings that the G man would have stayed 1 more year.

About the Mankato state play...........

He was lucky it went in. The goalie could have had it with the glove, but was too fast and missed it. Plus he was going top shelf and only got the puck a foot and a half off the ice!

I dunno. I still say it was the prettiest play I saw all year, and in my top 5 overall. Okay, maybe the shot by Wheeler in the playoffs also, but that was really lucky. That Okposo kid can really play and just ran out of gas after the world juniors.

I'm not a gopher fan either (UMD faithful), but am excited that he's coming back next year so I can watch him on the telecasts.

he does have talent, no question about that. he just got lucky on that particular goal. i hope he will just deke the goalie without doing the stick through the legs, cuz next time it will be poke checked and he will look dumb.

OK I can't beleive all you MN boys picking ND. All I can say is lets go GOPHERS. You should come to a game in Grand Forks and see what its like to wear Gophers colors to work and to the games, its a blast.

Talent.....Don't get that confused with luck. To be able to do that he must have PRACTICED it many many times, and then to break it out in a game......unbelievable.

Only downside is now all my 8-10 year old kids are messing around with stuff like that.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
    • PSU
      Lot's of walleyes to be had, but most for me seem to be smaller (8-10 inches)

      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.

      You know it’s a good day when you’re thumb looks like that from lipping the fish! What sizes are you getting right now, Rick?

      Last two days have been incredible for both size and numbers

      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.
