      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 .

OK Guys,

The exciting series that everybody was salivating for 6 months ago starts today. Everybody on this site probably had visions of playoff implications and October baseball way back in March and April and then a funny thing happened to Twinkie fans and Pale Hose lovers alike.....THE SEASON BEGAN! DOAH.

So who is going to be first of the worst. YO vs Buehrle tonight. I will go out on a limb (surprise) and say my beloved Pale Hose will take 2 out of 3 but here is the kicker. I will say that somewhere in the series there will be a bench clearing brawl as two underachieving teams do battle as their collective season draws to an end and they take their frustrations out on each other. You can say you heard it here first. GO BEARS!!!

You could be right with the 2 out of 3 thing, but as for the fight, you would be better off sitting at home and pissing your wife off. The twins dont have any fight in them grin.gif , seriously the twins are a mellow team with self control. This is why you guys have a catcher we used to have smirk.gif

At least you have football to fall back on. The only team with a chance at a championship plays Division III.

Funny stuff so far guys!

I guess misery loves company.

Things have been pretty sad here on the southside of the Windy this summer.

No one would think that the Twins could go to the playoffs with basicly the same team as last year certainly not 5 out 7 years anyway we don't spend enough money or sign big name free agents.

But you guys do so it must be a lock for you to got the playoffs...oh wait its baseball and chit happens!!!

Not sure if the Sox's or KC will be but if I were to guess I'd say the Sox will finish last.

Hey Pier,

Sorry to burst your bubble, my man, but your boys are in the same boat my friend as my beloved Pale Hose. You know what they say, "If you ain't the lead dog, the scenery never changes" and your Twinks are looking at the same p00p chute that my beloved Pale Hose are. Last time I looked, you guys were South of the Mason/Dixon line just like us!

Windy- how can a team win the World Series one year then just two seasons later- albeit with the same roster basically, flirt with last place (I think Chi-town WILL finish last)??????

I still would rather be a top turd that the one smothered by all the other turds at the bottom of the pile.

That said, Ozzie and Gardy do have their first tee times scheduled for the same day this year.

Zamboni,

The only way I can answer that and I am sure every one of you Twinkie Lovers would agree. I would rather have one World Series Championship trophy sitting on my mantle than 6 Division Titles. Getting to the dance is nice but you have got to go home with the prom queen to make it worth renting the tux, my man. Second place is just the first of the worst so I will take my slightly tarnished 2005 Championship ring and display it proudly and hope that my guys play a little better next year, hope some of my older stars stay a little more healthy, hope my GM opens the wallet a little wider and picks up some help in the bullpen and a few other spots and go for another ring!

By the by, we lead the turd bowl 2-Zip right now and go for the "flush" tomorrow (get it? Flush instead of Sweep! LOL)

Well said Windy.

Division title's are nothing in my mind unless you win the whole thing. Good example to go with the Twins are the Braves, may division title's with nothing to show, well 1 I think.

Wild,

I'm right there with you man. I'm sure it would be great as a Brave fan to see your team in the arena each year but you start to expect to watch them lose instead of getting excited about them being there. I know that you can't win if you don't play and that there is a 100% guarantee that teams who don't make the playoffs will not win the Series but I agree with your sentiment.

Looks like we win the Turd Bowl but I don't think either the Twinks or Pale Hose won anything this year. I say we just have one big FLUSH and wait till spring training.

That is just flat out ridiculous...no this Twinkie lover does not agree...

I'll take 8 Playoff appearances in 20 years over 1 world series win in a 80 years....of course we also have TWO World Series rings in that span.

You two should get a hotel room next time MNwild is down in Chicago... grin.gif

Pier,

If me and Wild was to get a room, it would have to be up near Wrigley, since they call the area there "boys town", if you get the drift. But hey, you enjoy your 6 runner up awards, think about what a great playoff run you had last year, all three games of it (?) or so and I will keep looking at that Championship Ring. Which we have 3 of as long as we are counting!

Second place is just the first of the worst, give me the whole enchilada!

      I've been fishing all my life, but I've only recently started seriously catfishing. I've discovered a spot near my home on the Minnesota river where the current comes to a still near a small, no longer active dam where there are rocks and tons of baitfish, which I assume should be a good spot for big flatheads. I've fished this spot a few days now and have only successfully pulled out a small flathead of maybe 5 or 6 pounds on a medium sized live sucker about a foot below a bobber. For your experienced catters, what's the best approach for big cats this time of year? Do you prefer live bait or cut bait? When using cut bait are heads or filets better? Since MN only allows one rod out should I be focusing my bait near the bottom of the river or a couple feet under a bobber? I tend to fish between 7pm-10pm although I'd like to try more late night fishing. Thanks for any suggestions!

      Had similar issues.  I was up for three weeks, each week it was a different set of boats encroaching.  I don't think you can do to much about the one week fishermen. They are in a panic to find fish and when the see one go in the boat, look out. One time,  I was looping in and out of a small spot picked up nice fish and this guy comes in right on that spot and starts jigging.  I couldn't even get back to it.  He would have never know it was there.  I just leave and find more fish.  
    • RoosterMan
      Definitely that time of year again.  Load the boat full of kids and put the raps out and be prepared to catch a lot of fish.  Only gets better from here.  Pic of my son and his cousin and their limits.  Good memories being made.

      When archery deer season opens Saturday, Sept. 16, mandatory testing for chronic wasting disease and restrictions on moving deer carcasses begins again in southeastern Minnesota’s CWD management zone, deer permit area 603.  “With archery deer season approaching, hunters are encouraged to plan ahead and be aware of the testing that will be required and the specifics about when they can and can’t move carcasses out of the CWD zone,” said Lou Cornicelli, wildlife research manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Archery hunters in deer permit area (DPA) 603 will be required to submit the head from all adult deer 1 year old or older so lymph nodes can be tested for CWD. Hunters cannot remove the carcass or carcass remains from the CWD zone until a negative test result is reported. Carcass movement restrictions do allow hunters to immediately transport out of the zone quarters or other deer pieces without spinal column parts; boned-out meat; and antlers with a skull plate that is free of brain matter. Hunters should check page 65 of the 2017 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook for additional information. “Archery deer hunters also should check the DNR website for the DPA boundary map,” Cornicelli said. “As a reminder, the CWD management zone was created from DPAs 347 and 348, so hunters need to be mindful of what area they’re hunting.” Hunters are required to register their deer. DNR will allow phone and Internet registration during the archery season in the CWD zone. The system will be monitored for compliance and may be turned off if needed. Mandatory testing and carcass movement restrictions will remain in effect for area 603 throughout deer seasons for archery, firearm, muzzleloader and any late season hunts. Head collection boxes will be located in: Chatfield: Magnum Sports, 1 1st St., 507-867-4399. Preston: DNR area forestry office, 912 Houston St., 507-765-2740. Lanesboro: DNR area fisheries office, 23789 Grosbeak Rd., 507-467-2442. Wykoff: Goodies and Gas, 104 E Front St., 507-352-2421. Harmony: Oak Meadow Meats, 50 9th St., 507-886-6328 Archery hunters should do the following: Field dress (gut) deer as normal. Register deer via phone, internet or walk-in big game registration station. If harvest occurs late in the day, sample (head) submission and registration do not have to occur on the same day. If the deer will be mounted, a video showing how to properly cape your deer is available at bitly.com/capeadeer. Remove the head, leaving at least 4 inches of neck attached. Hunters can take meat out of the zone immediately but the carcass (head with brain and spinal column) cannot be moved outside deer permit area 603 until a negative test result is received so hunters must: Make arrangements to refrigerate the carcass before the deer is processed; Cut deer into quarters or other pieces; or Bone-out the meat. Ensure no spinal column or brain matter is included with the meat or on the antlers. Properly dispose of carcass remains. There will be a dumpster at the DNR forestry office in Preston for hunters who don’t have a way to dispose of remains. The Preston dumpster is being provided as a courtesy for deer carcass disposal only. It will be removed if people attempt to process deer there or use the dumpster for trash disposal. Bring the entire head of deer to one of five head box collection sites. Each collection box has specific instructions on how to properly submit the head for sampling. Put heads in the plastic bags provided. Use the maps provided at each box to mark an “X” where the deer was harvested. Submit this map with sample. Samples during the archery season will be submitted for testing on Mondays and Thursdays. It may take up to four business days for test results to be available.  CWD test results can be searched using a nine-digit MDNR number online at www.mndnr.gov/cwdcheck. Deer hunters should regularly check the DNR’s CWD website at mndnr.gov/cwd for the most recent information. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
