      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 .

It would be great if the twins could keep Santana. However, his recent comments have me thinking he is leaving regardless of the twins offer. Awesome performance today!

Ya'll can agree with Santana's comments from a few weeks ago or not, but I think he is right on the money.

It ain't going to happen this year but lets position ourselves for next year (and beyond). Get this guy signed, get our other big shots signed, and build from there. It costs money to make money, the fans are getting tired of waiting.

New stadium on the way... would be a shame if no one showed up to watch in a few years. Remember the Doug Meintkewicz fanclub in left field from 5 years ago, they were the only guys sitting out there.

I had the pleasure of watching the game in person and Santana was absolutely spectacular! Never before at a game did I look forward to our lineup to get done in order to watch our pitcher. It was quite a performance.

He was filthy today. It makes you wonder what might have happened if Sosa hadn't played...

Do whatever it takes to get him signed. I know the Zambrano and Zito contracts don't help us at all but get him signed. By far the best change up in the game.

It's sad you had to worry about him losing the game when Nathan put one on in the ninth or when Sosa crushed that ball just a few feet foul. He should have pitched the ninth and gone for Clemens' record of 20Ks.

Yep. They did Santana wrong by taking him out. Twins are overprotective of their pitchers to a fault.

he was at 112 pitches after 8 innings and the last 2 batters Sosa and Cruz maybe both hit him hard foul....they made the right decision......

You need Santana if you are going to have a chance down the stretch. You don't need him going out there trying to strike guys out when he's already at 112 pitches. By all accounts Santana was 100% cool with coming out, he knows the win is the important thing. I think they did just fine taking him out.

yeah but as a fan you want to see history happen when you're that close. i would've liked to see him go out in the 9th and if he didn't strike out the first guy, then take him out.

YEP.

We really dont have much to play for at this point and this would be huge for twins fans. Chances are slim to none that we'll win the division.

well he couldn't break any records only tie them so big deal....The Twins are a great organization for this.....alot of clubs would let him go out there and throw some more but they don't think about the players career. If they always let him throw for the shut out or CG or records it is just going to take away from his overall career. It can be frusterating as a fan but in the long run it was a right decision..IMO

We are only 6 games out with a ton left to play against the division leaders.

We probably don't have as good a team as last year but we also aren't as far behind as we were last year. There is still hope, I mean come on its not like we are the Chicago White Sox or something.

What if he would have gone out for the ninth , got up around the 125 + pitch count and boom , blows out the rotator cuff or something ? They watch the pitch count very closely and from what I hear there is very little wiggle room . Probably a good thing . For some reason I was thinking that Scott Erickson had a 20 strikeout game , he didn't , then I heard that the last time a Twin had a 15 stikeout game it was Bert back in the mid 80's . Made me appriciate what Santana did a bit more .

It is easy to say that he should have pitched the 9th, but you're right, they really watch the pitch count. I think the right call was made.

If you read the sports page today(pioneer press) You would know that santana took him self out of the game. When he went out for a curtain call in between the 8th and 9th gardy asked rick anderson, hey whats that mean?, and rick anderson said, I guess he's done. Santana is smart enough to know when he has thrown enough pitches and is also smart enough to have confidence in one of the BEST most RELIABLE closers in the game to close it out for him. You shouldnt go off bad mouthing the organization when you dont know the details of the situation.

i could be wrong, but I believe Kerry Wood has 20K and the Big Unit has 19k in one game and I think the Unit had 18 in another. I think those are at least the modern day records.

IF Black magic had K'ed two more in the 9th, I think he would have tied the AL record and if 3, would have broken the AL record and tied MLB record of Wood's 20K. IF's and buts....

if he would have hit 20 strikeouts he would have tied a MLB record with Roger Clemens who did it twice and Kerry Wood....Nolan Ryan had 19K's in 3 different games in one season!!!

Biff yes Scott Erickson did throw a no-hitter with the Twins!!!

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go. 
    • MinDak Hunter
      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.
    • Croix1959
      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
