      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 .

This is like a Mets fan trying to find any way possible to rub it in that the Skankees are done. At least the Amazin' Ones waited until September to curl up and die.

Windy-

I like the fact of how the cubs have lost in the last 5 postseason's---

1984-- 3 in a row to the PADRES (all 3 at home)

1989 3 in a row to the Giants

1998 3 in a row to the Braves

2003 3 in a row to the Marlins

and the latest episode of cubs fever,, (catch it if (when you can)

2007 3 in a row to the D-Backs.

Way to go cubs!!! Ever want a sure bet?? BET agst the cubs in the postseason with all you got. It's as sure as the sun going down in the evening--- it's always going down on the cubs!!!!!

Mud,

Maybe we should put a Benjamin down on the Cubbies next year...TO LOSE. One dollar for each year of futility.

TICK TICK TICK 100 years and counting. I think the last time the Cubbies won it all, Geno was a freshman in high school, sound about right, ole man? LOL

Geno, I'm sorry, I couldn't resist....

From The Onion

—Following the Cubs' first-round elimination from the playoffs, a stunned and confused Lou Piniella asked umpires and reporters to clarify the rules of division-series play, claiming he "could have sworn" that advancing to the NLCS involved losing three games as quickly as possible. "I thought we had the Diamondbacks right where we wanted them—we looked terrible out there, we had all the momentum on their side, and it seemed like the other team was practically trying to win," said Piniella, who claims he began getting suspicious before Game 3 due to the ease with which he lost the first two games. "Though, I guess when you think about it, this way makes lots more sense." Piniella promised that he would attempt to win the games in the NLDS next year should the Cubs amass the 90 losses needed to make it to the postseason.

Hi Buzz. Good to hear from you. I hope all has been well.

Excuse the Cubbies avatar. I joined Geno's bandwagon after the Twinks started making tee times and have not changed back yet.

Windy Windy Windy.... I see "our" teams faded from glory this season while the Cubbies "made" the post season... I'm just glad you and Geno have become web friends over the years. grin.gifwink.gif The real question is: Did Adrian peterson just give the Bears a spanking or what last week? It was a truly great performance wouldn't you agree? That little Hester is special as well.

Awright, Buzz, glad you are back.

Hester is the luckiest guy I ever saw.

Geno,

Please tell me you are just kidding? Lucky. The boy is pure talent. He sees the seems that are not there for most players and hits a gear that most people just dream about. Look at his average per touch against the entire NFL and he is something like 20x better than anybody else.

Buzz, it was definitely AP vs DH and the rest of the Bears and Queens just stood around watching. I have to admit, I turned the game off when it was 31 to 17 and the Bears were looking like crapola. And yes, our baseball teams did get all the best Tee times this year and I guess you could say the Cubbies made it to the playoffs, kind of, they were the least smelly turd in the NL Central toilet bowl and really showed what they were made of once they hit the playoffs. After all, they are the Cubs, nothing new. I have a great photo that I would love to post for Geno but I can't figure out how to do it. It is in an email that was sent to me. I know you are the photo guru so maybe you can help, I know Geno would get a chuckle out of it.

So are you back in the sandbox playing with all the kids now? Talk to you later.

I will say Hester is lucky in the sense that there are still NFL coaches out there dumb enough to kick to him. I know they don't want to give up that much field postition but 10 yards per punt given up to kick it out of bounds can't be better than the risk of him taking all the way.

Kickoffs may be a different story but if a coach punts to him again anywhere near the inside of the hashmarks he should be fired on the spot.

      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Headed up for one last weekend of open water fishing.  Anyone been out this week, how’s the bite?

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
    • Bigfatbert
      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?
