      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.

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.
    • Reel_Magic
      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update
    • Rancid Crabtree
      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there. 
    • gimruis
      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious
