      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 .

Is it UH OH Time, Geno?

Geno,

If I have it pegged right, you are sitting there this morning with a raging hang over from the Jack Daniels but your stomach is in good shape from the Pepto chasers. It looks like Wiggly Field could be in for a cleaning as the D-Backs sweep into town!

I think Sweet Lou has managed a great series so far. He has the D-Backs right where he wants them and by pulling Big Z early he has him rested and ready to go on 3 days rest for game 4 but here is the beauty of it, he also pulled Lilly after only 79 pitches so he should be able to go on 3 days rest for the big game 5 when the Cubbies clinch the series on Sunday!!! Lou has my vote for manager of the year for the way he has led the D-Backs to think they have control of this series. Little do the unwitting boys from the west know but Lou has them right where he wants them.

One question, how has he gotten the high powered Cubbie offense to lay down so convincinigly? I mean having the top 5 batters go 1 for 22 in game one, having Aramis Ramierez strike out 7 times in two games, like the two guys say on the Guiness Stout commercial.....BRILLIANT!!!

PS: Do you know what time the city has scheduled the Victory Parade for the Cubbies????

Oh yeah, I forgot, they already had their celebration because they knew they would be ONE AND DONE!!!

LMAO

I know, I know...the fat lady is humming.

Some decisions don't always work out - ask Torre, or better yet ask your SSide guys Williams and Ozzie if they woulda made diff decisions to avoid becoming 2nd div tenants.

You can gloat all you want Windy but it will be the NL Central flag you will be displaying when we bet the avatar bet next year.

PS I hear Yogi in the background of that humming ("it ain't over........")

PPS I wish I hadn't stayed up to watch Lee and Ramirez flail in the 9th at that heater the guy was throwing. He looked like Jenks out there 'cept he made the save.

Yeah,

You know I had to give you a little of the ole Eddie Haskell, right Geno? Just givin you a little of the business. I would love to talk but I have to run, I am meeting a semi-truck from Ace Hardware who is heading for Wiggly Field with a load of O Cedars from Arizona, for tomorrows game. LOL

Fishy Fishy in the brook,

Come and bite my little hook.

Fishy Fishy in the lake,

Please don't be a water snake!

Hey Geno,

Be sure to wrap yourself tightly in that Central Division Flag, maybe you can use the other few that the Cubbies have won to ward off the cold bitter winds of defeat that continue to blow into Wiggly Field....99 years and counting

Tick Tick Tick

I will have my shiny 05 Championship Ring to keep me warm with it's glow!

Tee Hee

That '05 ring still has a glow. I didn't know they were eternal flames.

I got to admit you are getting more mileage out of that ring than any one hit wonder band got of their song.

That's like me still basking in the glow of the last BHawk Kup. Where do you draw the line? That ring is so old and tarnished that a bottle of the goo from QVC couldn't even put a glow on it. Better find a good tarnish remover if you need that ring to keep you warm because it's gonna be quite awhile before you see another.

Plus, you are lucky CNYTim is nice enough not to remind you about '06 anymore - and soon the '07 winner will make the '05 ring a distant memory. And don't even get me started on how many champs the Cubs have in their history compared to the WSox....but please go ahead and keep giving me the Eddie Haskell all in good fun - I probably only gotta take it for one more day.

PS Who knows which team has that whole "most ex-Cubs on their team" thing which we all know plays a major role on the outcome of the playoffs, right?

OH Fishy,

Now you are going to make me reply by stating that we have three and then you are going to reply that they were from years before television was invented and then I will have to reply that a championship is a championship, just ask the Yankees that are sitting on twenty something championships and then you will reply that our championships were won before your team was even created and then.....IT WILL BE SPRING TRAINING AGAIN AND WE CAN START FIGHTING ALL OVER AGAIN !

Geno,

Lou is outstanding. Not only does he have Big Z fresh as a daisy to pitch today, Lilly looking good for Tuesday, now he has Rich Hill ready to go in game 6 since he only tossed up 75 pitches yesterday and then Big Z can come in and seal the deal in game 7. Also, by having the Cubs bats lay down like they have in the first three games we should be in for an offensive explosion as the $300 Million worth of high powered bats Jim Hendry bought last year come to life and carry the Cubs to the first ever comeback from 0-3 to roar into the Championship!!!

And then Goldy Locks said this bed is too big, this bed is too small but this bed is just right and she fell fast asleep.....JUST LIKE THE LITTLE BEARS (CUBS) DID IN THE PLAYOFFS.

Nighty Night, sleep tight Geno, don't let the Windy Bugs bite.

LOL

      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.
