      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 .

Twins are back

Wish I hadn't kicked dirt on their graves a couple weeks ago. This thing truly isn't over yet. Currently in the 3rd inning here on sunday they have scored 4 runs, looks like they are back to Twins baseball. Might have a shot yet

Nice to see the bats come alive. Hopefully my "run-support" post will drop off the map. They've got virtually all divisional series left with a huge one at Cleveland this week. Let's hope they can keep it going. I can't believe how stacked at pitching we are with Garza, Baker pitching strong and Slowey ripping up AAA.

The twins have played well , but look at who they played, the true test will be this next series, if they can sweep cleavland, then I will say they are back. Either way we have a nice pitching staff, and an offense that is not stable. We still need a strong batter if we are going anywhere this year!

Cleveland series will be huge!

If they do well against Cleveland, they gotta keep the momentum going however. I can see a series sweep of Cleveland, big celebration, and then they deflate after that.

How long does this bandwagon need to pause here to let everyone on? grin.gif

Oh, I will admit, they're a lot more fun to watch lately. Bartlett, Hunter, Redmond... and even Casilla and Li'l Nicky (..wha?) have had entertaining atbats of late.

Sorry. Schweady family secret, of course. I can tell you not to leave them on the heat too long and let them get all misshapen... Look for 'Seasons Eatings' to take your delivery orders again when we get closer to the holidays.

A sweep would be nice, but they at least need 2 out of 3. I think they only have 7 games remaining that are out of the division, so we are in it, but we have to make these games count.

Go Twins!

A sweep is a pipe dream 2 out 3 would nice but if I were to bet on it I'd say Cleveland will win 2 out of 3.

Go Twins.....the Castillo trade is going to hurt a lot more then I thought it was going to.

With Sabathia & Byrd pitching Cleveland takes 2 of 3. Last time Byrd went against the Twins he gave up 4 hits no runs with a complete game and we all know how the Twins fair against left hand pitching.

I got Byrd on my fantasy team- him and Kelvim Escobar. They have turned into studs this year for me. I traded Johan earlier this season- he hasn't been the same old Johan except for about 5 games this year

This could be a three game sweep and the last nail in the coffin for any chance at the play-offs. I love the Twins but no play-offs or miracle this season.

I see last nights games as proof that the Twins are back.

They are back to their normal ways. Win a few games to give us hope and then lose an important game to take the hope away again. Yes Sir, the twins are back.

I will go on record here and say the Twins will be in it till the end. Good thing you guys aren't in the clubhouse with all of your positive feedback. Still have 6 weeks to go and a lot of things can happen. Would be nice to pickup three games right now, but not the end of the world if we don't.

I will root and hope for the Twins to make the playoffs unitl they are mathematically eliminated.

No bandwagon for me.

Go Twins!

I try to watch most of the games, and will always root for the twins, even when they are eliminated. Just have the feeling that this is not their year. Hope to be wrong though. grin.giftongue.gif

I will be very honest about one thing- I would rather watch a Twins game right now than a Vikings or Timberwolves game. Wild is gonna be another story this year

Even though the twins lost tonight what an entertaining game right to the final out. Can you ask for more? ( of course some of you will ) Two web gems tonight with Punto and Hunter if you didn't watch the game then you missed why you should be watching..

You have to give them credit for trying tonight. Just really sucks that they keep coming up on the short end on games like this. Must make at least 20 1-run losses this year.

BobbyB, you hit it on the head. Those two tonight were up there with the Top Ten Web Gems of '07. Even the 5-4-3 triple play the other night... you gotta love being tuned in to see one turned, even though it was a huge Twinks rally killer. While it is sobering to witness the title hopes slip slowly away for this year, the true fan didn't wait to catch these on SportsCenter.

19-18 in 1-run games so far this year.

Not the fault of the players...when you have Carmen Cali out there for a potentially season-turning inning...have .157 White coming off the bench to pinch hit...this team is a few pieces short of being a playoff team.

As much as I've moaned about Punto's Houston Jimenez impression with the bat this year, that was one of the best plays I've ever seen.

We're almost back to the point where I can just enjoy watching the games & not worry about where they're at in the standings. tongue.gif

Great game last night, you're right.

Carmen Cali should not be allowed to pitch in that situation whether he is lefthanded or not. Whomever's decision that was at that point obviously made the wrong one.

That game yesterday was the most important one of the season, Neshek, Guerrier, Nathan are the only ones that should have had a chance to come out of the bullpen yesterday in that close of a game. They are our best relievers and we should have used them. Coaches can take that loss yesterday. mad.gif

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
