      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 .

Y a h oo is reporting Twins are scouting Mike Piazza- 10 years too late, but still might hit out 20 a year- better than Ford or Kubel

Would be surprised if the Twins would pay better then 8 mil a year for a DH who can't thro ( bad Shoulder)for that kind of money they could go find a healthy, power hitting 3rd basemen.

Piazza is hurt right now. If we did pick him up I am sure Oakland would eat some of his salary. Piazza would start in the 7th hole behind Hunter and hopefully move up to the 4 hole and bump Cuddyer. I don't know why but I am not a Cuddyer fan. Especially in the 4 hole. He is not a 4 hitter. Castillo, Bartlett, Mauer, Piazza, Morneau, Hunter, Cuddyer, Kubel, and I suppose Punto. We will see what happens.

Piazza is hitting .282 with 1 HR and 8 RBI this year..........not my idea of a #4 hitter! He couldn't replace Punto at #9! I'll take Garrett Jones for a DH and a fill-in 1b-of spot. Give the kid a chance to make it, and don't get a washed-up, old has-been, who can't play defense, just because of the press he has gotten.

I never understood this thing about each position HAS to have THIS type of player(like 3b needs to hit for power, drive in runs,etc.). confused.gif I think it is a TEAM game and you need to look at the overall picture. One player picks up anothers weaknesses, and the whole team benefits. I will take Punto at 3b defensively over 90% of the 3ber's out there. He is a great utility player, and as such is mvp for the team. I've noticed they keep trying others at 3b, but they have been a liability defensively, with little improvement offensively.....so until they find someone better than Punto, he's their BEST option. If he could just lay off the high- hard one, he'd be hitting 50 pts better. Maybe he needs to crouch more at the plate....make them bring it down a little. The teams have him swinging at "their" pitches.......good scouting on their part.

I happen to like Cuddy in the 4 hole better than any other options I've seen. The L-R-L-R middle of the lineup is great, don't mess with the successes. laugh.gif

True Piazza is no where near the player he once was but he is still somewhat of a threat. This is his first year in the AL as a DH. I would bet in a full year Piazza could hit 25-30 HR's as a full time DH. Did Piazza sign a 1 yr deal in Oakland? If the Twins don't trade for him now they could sign him next year to a 1 yr incentive laiden deal. But when is the last time the Twins signed a name player?

Could he stay healthy as a DH? That's the real question. That article also said the Yankees were shopping him, so I am not counting on anything yet

I'm not big on Piazza, but I would take him over any DH we have right now.

I'll take Dimitri Young. He is having a great year and would fit in perfectly. Switch hitting DH that could also play 1B when Morneau needs a day off or wants to DH.

Punto MVP? I don't think so. He would be a great guy to have on the bench and play 2-3 games a week giving guys a day off, but as an everyday player, he is lacking.

Let's refer to the Phil Neven experiment, which looked good on paper, but never developed into much.

I would take either Piazza or Jones as our DH. Pretty bad when you put Tyner as your DH and he has never hit a HR. Anybody would be better than what we have.

Why is Gardy so reluctant on letting Luis Rodriguez DH or even play for that matter- he has a little pop in his bat, better than Tyner at the plate.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
