      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 .

Hopefully this will provide enough of a spark for them to at least make a push towards the division.

BGreen,

I'm with you on that one. I mean come on, first he loses the perfect with a walk and then the no no to a guy who was walking in cold to pinch hit for his first at bat since June 17th. At least my miserable team can seal the deal when they get close. Mr. Buehrle has his no no in the bank this year. And didn't they turn around and lose the other game 9-4 to KC?

PS: Don't let the Cubs Logo fool you, I have lost a few bets this year to Geno and this is his payback, a week of looking at this God Awful logo instead of my beautiful shiny World Championship ring.

Buehrle's been in the league a few years. So how long did it take for him to throw a prefect game. Wait no-hitter right. 1 World Championship and back to losersville. Over priced team of losers.

Put that in you're pipe and smoke it. Good job Baker.

Always nice to have Windy make a comment. Just like a bad movie critic when Windy talks you know it is just the opposite. A real nice game by Baker. There not easy to come by and he may never get the chance again for a perfect game. What a great experience for a young pitcher. I feel for Redmond, you know he was hoping to be on the receiving end!

I was a wreck watching it, I can't imagine how Baker felt.

And Windy, the Twins lost the first game 9-4. Baker's was the second.

Im sorry to all of you. I took my kid to the game and told her she better be paying attention because she may be watching history. Well ten minutes later you know what happened. Still I think a lot of people there knew in the 3rd inning they were seeing something cool. You could just see he was pitching great and even if it was a onehitter it was a great performance. Thanks scott for giving my daughter and I soemthing to remember for years to come.

Brought my daughter to this game as her first ever baseball game (She is 3). It was a great game to watch. Do you all wanna know what she remembers about it?

"Daddy, we went to a baseball game and saw a BEAR on a 4 WHEELER. THAT IS SILLY!!!"

grin.gif kids!!! grin.gif the bad thing is the first pitch to the guy he walked was a strike called a ball and then the only other pitch he got in that count was in the same spot...not saying he would have had a different outcome but not the time to tighten the zone!! Great game for Baker!!!

It is certainly getting old........

You know the great thing about how poorly the WSox are playing? You just don't hear all that bullcrap on the news all the time about how interesting a player AJ is or how great a manager Ozzie is or what a fantastic GM Kenny Williams is....gag me with a spoon...P-uke!

It's funny...Harrelson still says Uribe is a good shortstop and Reinsdorf has the nerve to grade Ozzie as an 'A'. Hmppf.

Geno,

I guess Jerry was grading on a "curve" eh? I almost wet myself when I heard him shoot out the A. Hard to swallow in the midst of all the garbage on the field this year, not sure Jerry is on the same page of reality as the fans!

Geno,

Today there is talk of a contract EXTENSION for the Wizard of OZ ! Imagine if the Pale Hose were actually North of the Mason/Dixon line this year, we would be looking at Ozzie Jr. running the team in 20 years or so!

Things that make you go, hmmmm!

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
