      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 .

Ramon Ortiz Gone

Recommended Posts

What does everyone think of Ortiz getting traded to the Rockies for a minor leaguer? I think it isn't a bad trade at least we got something for a pitcher that wasn't worth a darn and definetly did not need to be here next year.

Good trade. Weren't using him that much anyway. Saved some money and got us a AAA 3rd baseman. We're still stacked at pitching right now.

It's Ok but Gardenhire seemed fairly disapointed when he anounced it after the game the other night. Ramon was good in the clubhouse, took his demotion from starter well, and he did a good job filling his role (pitiching garbage time). Having said that, the trade is probably good for him (Rockies have a shot and need pitching, Ramon wants to start) and a decent AAA prospect is always good to have.

The Twins gave him over $3 million and he proved to be a failure. At least they saved $800,000 he would have been paid for the rest of the season.

Well he did get 4 wins at a better price then Clemens gets per win. Was only signed for this year as a starter that did not work. Good looking prospect in trade...

I think it's one of those moves that just makes good baseball sense. Ryan mostly makes those, sometimes there's some moves he doesn't make that I think would make good baseball sense too, but overall, in the long run, his moves are pretty solid.

What has happened the last two years? Lousy veterans who don't pan out are trusted upon to help the team and end up leaving (with the exeption of Mr. White). Batista, White, Ortiz, Ponson, all crappy and none have helped. I wish the Twins wouldn't waste money and just focus on our own guys (Garza, Baker, Slowey) and getting our home grown veterans signed.

Staying on topic, I am against the trade because it shouldn't have happened in the first place because Ortiz shouldn't have been on the team in the first place! (did that make any sense?) confused.gif

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
