      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 .

As you all know, the Giants have made it very clear to Mr Bonds he isn't needed there next season. Personally, I think he set the all-time homer record and the Giants have sold their tickets. Where does everyone think he'll end up? Yankees? Red Sox?

An AL team for sure. Unless he wants to play first in the NL. I could see Detroit making a run. Toronto?

Although the Twins need the power, they don't need another left handed batter. Money would be better spent on Torii. Consider this, even with Barry's baggage, he still was one of the top vote getters for the All Star Game. He is still popular and not just with the Giants fans.

Guy has 50 home run potential still, hope all you want, in the AL as a DH, he still has 4-5 years left in him.

Zamboni,

All I can pray for is, NOT ON MY TEAM!

Once a turd, always a turd and Barry is one of the biggest.

He can take his 50 taters to the Yankees.

I would take Bonds on for the Twins. You get a guy like him and you find a way to make it work. However, we all know the Twins will not pony up the money to get him. I still say Detroit or Toronto. If worse comes to worse he will sign with a bad team like Tampa or KC just to get hid 3,000 hit and that team will dump him for prospects at the trade deadline.

Where's Bonds Gonna Go?


To Jail for perjury!

Sounds like they wouldn't be bringing these charges up against him and after so long if they didn't have some pretty good dirt. Sounds like he's dead in the water.

I have a hard time thinking he's going to jail, but his baseball career is over, along with any chance at the hall of fame.

Shoeless Joe and Pete Rose will be in the hall before Barry. Whether he is found guilty or not he's done.

All this asterick stuff is a big joke. Everybody that brings it up and thinks thats how it should be needs a wake up call. If you think Barry is a bad player because he may have used steroids you dont know too much about the game. What do steroids do for you. Make you stronger? Ok so he can hit the ball farther good for him. To be able to still hit the ball on those 95mph fastballs time after time, at his age still nonetheless is far better than most of us can do. I'm not gonna take anything away from Barry. He broke the record whether everybody likes it or not. He is one of the best players to play the game and he does not deserve an "asterik" like everybody thinks. In sports today steroids are a normal thing. Accept it. Even if its not allowed it will always be there. Have you read and heard about the numerous people that get suspended every year for it? Did you know a good majority of high school athletes are on steroids. Random testing was just made mandatory in Texas high school football. Do you want to just start handing asteriks out to everybody like stickers or what. Very disappointing to see so many people rag on a guy for something a good majority of the rest of the league is doing too. Give the guy a break and lose the asterik....all it is is a star...should it even really mean anything

Cheater. Plain & Simple.

Steroids are a "performance enhancing drug".

Performance Enhancing!

If he wasn't on 'roids at his age, he wouldn't be in that shape and able to perform the way he does.

The other thing to remember he isn't in trouble now for taking steroids, he's in trouble for lying to a grand jury under oath. Somewhere along the line he thought he was above the law and could get away with what he wanted to. Apparently that carried over to the court room which was a big no-no.

Somehow this is very commonplace now for today's professional athletes. They do whatever they want, and hire the best lawyers their overinflated salaries can afford to get them off. Its sick. frown.gif

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      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.
