      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 .

Wolves Trade James for Rockets' Howard

Recommended Posts

No more Mike James as a T-wolf. The guy is megaoverpaid as is Howard, but at least the T wolves can create some room to give Foye more minutes and get some size, as well as getting Howard off the books a year earlier than James would be. It's sad that some trade assets have more value in today's NBA by sheer virtue of their contracts expiring. I mean, James was signed last summer and now we're happy to trade him for someone whose contract expires earlier. Don't get the idea that the wolves traded him for that reason; they've coveted Howard for a while, but signing a guy to dump him in a year doesn't make any sense to me but does anything McHale does make sense?

It's a decent trade. James did nothing for us last year. Juwan will help on the boards next year. Like you said he is off the books a year earlier but not till after the 08/09 season. He has a player option for that year which I'm sure he will pick up. Decent trade. We still have six guards. Maybe we could move one more?

Troy Hudson. Overpaid, inconsistant, and injury-prone.

I didn't even know Hudson was still on the team.

This is a good deal....granted Juwan is not what he used to be it still drops a guard off the roster gives KG and actual legitimate big man presence to help down low......big roster improvement IMO even though it would have nicer to get him 3-5 years ago when his name first started coming up in rumors.......Drop another guard Jaric or Hudson or even Hassel and hopefully we get Brewer in the draft and we would have a nice little team with Foye-McCants-Brewer-KG-Howard.....with Smith and Blount on the bench with our left over guards......not overly ipressive but a start to an improvement!!

mchale says he isnt done yet too. ive heard a couple rumors. theres the 7th overall for zach randolph, which i dont want. and theres ricky davis and 7th overall to sacramento for artest and the 10th overall. that i would take in a heartbeat. and with the 10th overall there are still some good forwards that will be available. i doubt brewer will be but thorton from fsu or the C from wash. cant think of his name. we'd have a decent lineup then. foye, mccants, artest, k.g. blount i guess.

i am not sure on the Randolph trade depends on who is avail at 7th......not to high on the moody Artest...otherwise that trade sounds good...but Ron Artest is a pain and not sure if that would be good for the long run for our young guys!!

Randolph for the 7th would be horrible. The Artest trade I would do only if it involed Ricky. Personality wise they are not much different and Artest has a lot more game.

That statement scares me a bit.

I recall the interview with James on KFAN just prior to his signing and knew immediately the guy was a knob. Good riddence. This trade worked out well for both sides.

As for the upcoming draft - what about the G-Town center (name escapes me)? I never hear his name mentioned in the top 10 which kind of puzzles me. Is he not going pro this year?

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
