      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 .

Anyone on here play amateur baseball or otherwise known as "town ball"? The state tourney is going on this weekend in Norwood and Hamburg. I play for St. Francis and we take on a good Elko squad this Friday at 5. Guys should make the trip and watch some amateurs play some good baseball. Anyone else play?

I did before I went into the service, then played over in Germany for a couple of years. Town ball was the best, grass roots ball, play hard, argue, kick dirt and cuss, when all was said & done, drink a few beers, shake hands and gain a couple more friends. Life is simple, if you allow it to be cool.gifcool.gif

You must play for Waterville. If so, I believe your pitcher threw it away to end the game. Maybe I will try to schedule a game with you guys next year.

Nothing better than town ball, I love playing against a small town team on a Friday night or Sunday afternoon when the whole town comes to watch. Howard Lake and Dassel come to mind. I am sure there are many more. It seems like western MN has those kind of teams. We are trying to get that atmosphere here in St. Francis but it is mostly just wives and girlfriends. It seems like some of the better ball players option for softball over baseball. You can pick up softball when your 40 and be good at it. Town ball is the best!!!!

Hey if you guys are looking for some Amateur Baseball you have to check out the action at US Cellular. The Sox are all amateur players this year. Last night was a true gem. 4 errors in one inning and 3 of them by one player!

I play for Dumont, which is in very western Minnesota. Friday night home games with the big home crowd are the best! We did take a trip down and played Saint Boni. this year - I believe they are in the same leauge as Watertown.........

It makes me all giggly inside when I see that logo as your avatar.....now they gotta get down to business as the stretch run starts this pm against the 'stros - or else it'll just be a hollow victory for me to have won our bet.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...
