      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.

Garnett trades

It's sounding more and more like its only a matter of time before he gets traded out. After next year KG has an opt out clause and if they don't make the playoffs and can't put anything around him why would the guy stay considering how amazingly competitive he is?....I have no doubt he would leave in a classy way but it would still sting the T wolf fans.

ESPN is talking about Boston or Phoenix. Personally if it is inevitable, I would rather see him go to Phoenix so I could start cheering for Phoenix and see him with Nash...He'd have a great shot at that ring. I can't stand seeing him go to Boston...they've ripped us off once and I grew up watching Boston win championships...I've seen enough so for my part they can stink for the next 50 years.

Anyone hear anything else? Hoopshype.com is always good for a rumor or two.

I just read the same thing you did on ESPN. If he went to Phoenix we would need Stoudamire back in return along with some other things. If he went to Boston they were talking about Al Jefferson and Boston's first round pick. I think we would need a lot more than that. I think it is time to trade KG. It is McHale and Taylor's fault for not putting the pieces together around him to win while he was here. They did it one year and weird, they made it to the Western Conference Finals. If they do trade KG they better get a helluva good deal because I am sick of the Wolves getting ripped off in trades. mad.gif

The Kobe for KG trade is interesting, but it would never happen. The reason that both players want out is so they can go to a competator. Swapping players would land each player in the same situation, just further away from home. It will be hard to see KG go, but it is becoming inevitable. I see it happening before the upcoming season for a package of young players and draft picks. If we do trade him, we better find a way to get whatever team wants KG to take Hudson and Jaric as well!

I say they should try and get at least another lottery pick in this years draft along with our own 7 pick. That would mean getting two top players to add to our young up and comers. Also, get players with expiring contracts. Keep our core young players (Foye, McCants, Smith)and dump everyone else (Davis, Hassell, Hudson, Jaric). Wolves need to get out of all these bad contracts. If Mchale can do this he should resign and let someone else, such as Hoiberg, have a relatively clean slate to build a team. The best thing Mchale can do for this franchise is to leave the team.

If they could get Jefferson, Gerald Green and the #5 pick from Boston then I would do it. Jefferson is on the verge of being a great low post player and Green has tons of upside. We'd be extremely young, but could slowly develop a contender like the Bulls have.

Maybe by the time all the Wolves' young players are ready to make a run, Tim Duncan will have retired.

I really wasn't suggesting a Kobe for KG trade, I was talking about dumping some of our extra guards, Hudson etc... a draft pick, some cash to go along with KG, and JHoward?? I'm no expert but could that be feasable?? Definately would make it interesting with those three, hopefully some supporting staff, KG deserves the support. Go Wolves... cool.gifcool.gif

You nailed it on the head bucketmouth! Lets get 2 of the top 7 picks in a really deep draft. I think that we should keep hassel as he is experienced and proved he can score when he wants, he just needs to cut his minutes to 20-22/game. Garnett will be done after this year anyway. I think he will opt out of his contract so why not get something for him this year.

I don't think KG will opt out, he'd be nuts to turn down 24 million next year. He's not going to get that money anywhere else. I think he'd put up with it for one more year and then leave.

Still, I think they should move him if they get the right offer. This team isn't going anywhere and they don't have the cap space to bring in any good veteran talent.

Just blow it up and give Foye, McCants, Smith and the rookie(s) a bunch of mintues this year.

The only downside of that is that the fans wouldn't have high expectations with a bunch of young players and we wouldn't have any more motivation to call for McHale's firing.

I'm not aware of anyone expecting much from the current roster either. Trade Garnett and a bunch of our high end contracts (ie. Hudson, Jaric, etc..) for a high draft pick and expiring contracts. Let the young guns get their experience this year and build for the future.

Garnett isn't in the NBA for the money. Yes, it is an upside but KG plays for the love of the game. If he wants to leave next year he will and I don't think it will matter to him how much he makes as long as he wins.

I see Garnett rejected a trade to the Celtics and claims he wants to be dealt to the Suns. I heard it's Garnett and Hudson for Amare and the Suns first round pick in 2008(via Atlanta). We all know were Atlanta finishes every year so it seems like a Top 5 pick. I heard that we might have to bring a third team in. I think I would do it if that was the case.

Now that's an interesting trade rumor. I do believe KG would be gone after next season as well, and agree that we should get something for him now rather than nothing later. Our current team is going to be terrible again this season anyway. As much as I can't stand the guy, Steven A Smith was ranting the other day about how terrible a GM McHale is for having one of the best players of all time and doing absolutely nothing with it, never even seemed to try to build a team around him, and just think he was just named one of sports best general manangers??? What does McHale have on Glen Taylor?

I respectfully disagree. KG's insane salary is the reason we do not have anybody else on the team, even though we have some decent players though he can't win either way. If he really wanted to win and money was not an object, he would give up 75% of his salary to get some quality players here. Trade him while he's worth something.

I don't follow the NBA all that much but if they trade K.G. to anyone in the west and don't replace him with = talent they are nuts. Not only that but you trade K.G. for a non franchise labeled player and a couple draft picks the wolves will be right back to where they were in their inaugaral season a bunch of average joe players. No matter what they do I don't expect them to make the playoffs next year either one problem with the coaching last year in particular was they changed up the starting lineup too much even after they won with a certtain lineup next night out it would be changed so dont you feel as there was no substance for the team to gel as one when player minutes kept changin. Just my nickels worth

i think if i were kg, i'd look harder at that celtic deal. the cavs prooved that you only need one star to win the east. i never really heard who the celts were giving up, but they do have some young talent.

if i were the suns, i would never trade amare for kg. it makes no sense to me to trade a young star for an old one. kg has a little more offense, but that is it over amare. and with that said, amare can still pour in 40 a night, runs the floor better and defends just as well. i wonder if the lakers could put something together to appease kobe cool.gif

CoachDOg-

I said the same thing 3 years ago. KG is not worth half of what he was 3 years ago. Amare and a top 5 draft pick 3 years ago would have been laughed at. I'd take it now.

ALSO--- for all of you that said I was nuts for wanting to trade KG 3 years ago,,, (you're still on here) what do you think now?? Maybe they could trade him to the Spurs for Duncan and 4 championships??? Maybe we shouldn't trade him and make the first round every year until KG is 40 and get beat in 4 games to teams like Denver, houston, etc.

UMMMMM....not sure what your trying to say here?

He's worth about the same today as 3 years ago maybe a little more because he's not owed 100 MILLION Dollars salarys are a huge issue when trading players especially the higher paid guys.

A. Stoudamire was 22 3 years ago not sure what kind of anology you were trying to get at...

Personally I don't think trading KG will do anything to get us past the first round but I understand the logic of trading him.

Making trades in the NBA with the salary cap is difficult to nearly impossible.

I think its time for a change. Fact of the matter is, there just not getting it done now. I know tha tKG is one of the best players around in the game, but when the guy is making more money then all the other guys on the team, noone why they cant put anyone around him.

I will beat he will stay here and not leave.

This isn't the NFL. He can't restructure his contract. If you were going to sign a contract for your job would you sign for less money? Especially if you grew up in a single parent family in a town surrounded by drugs and poverty? McHale and Taylors fault...they write and sign the contracts and checks. It's not like he was going to get a deal that large on the market all those years ago....

I'am trying to say that 3 years ago I said on here that we should trade KG and got shot down like a zero over Midway. 3 years ago, KG was 3 years younger and the T-wolves still have a big 0 to show. If you honestly think KG is the same player he was 3 years ago, your nuts. He was worth more 3 years ago then he is now, that's why teams actually listen to deals now- becasue they know they can get KG for Al jefferson and some garbage thrown in or etc. Back after the WC Finals run, you could have gotten a top notch starter and two #1 draft picks, and no questions would have been asked. IN a nut- the time to trade a player is when he has the most market value. KG's market value has gone down hill ever since becasue no one wanted to pull the strings. Hope the T-wolves don't get screwed, but they defintely don't have the management to prove otherwise.

I agree we would have gotten more for garnett three years ago but who would trade the star player on a team that almost made it to the chapionship the year before. That would have made the fans even more angry at Mccale.

Yes now it looks like it would have been a good deal but who saw the timberwolves being this bad three years ago.

when spree and sam left, I saw the T-wolves being this bad 3 years ago. Period. Wally-- come on. He couldn't play with Spree or Sam C in their prime, and Sam C still had some productive years after he left. I'am glad the laker deal has busted as Bynum and Odom would have been a joke for KG.

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?"

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and 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. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and 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.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!
