      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 .

Not yet, but it sounds like they're going to the Heat. Players being mentioned as coming back to the Wolves are Antoine Walker, Michael Doleac and Wayne Simien. Likely a draft pick or two as well. Stay tuned...

sounds good to me......with the first round pick thrown in awesome.......Doleac has one year on his contract....Walker can be dropped after 2 years I believe if we don't buy out both of their contracts plus we get Simien guy who has some upside......get rid of Blount and dopey Davis........

Deal went through. We got the players mentioned plus a first rounder and some cash. I hate Walker but only has 2 years left.

Anyone hear when the first rounder is coming to us? I like that we are finally getting some picks instead of giving them away! I think we have some young talent now, might take a couple of years, but I finally fell like they MAY have a plan!! grin.gif

Love the trade. Didn't hear until late this afternoon. Got rid of a couple bad contracts for guys with 1-2 years left max and, are you ready for this? A DRAFT PICK. Taylor probably hired a middleman to lie to McHale and tell him that the Wolves would have to give away a pick to make the deal, when really they were getting the pick. I like that the Wolves will have cap room, but who is going to want to come here? They'll find a way to overpay an average guy or take whatever the other teams leave. They have to draft a KG or some such stud. I just hope Whitman knows how to develop a young team. They can't be broken into a system of losing and blaming and not doing the little things.

Love it too.

Sounds like they might buy 2 guys out. One will be Walker I would bet.

I just read that if the Heat make the play-offs this year the Wolves will get their 2008 pick, if they don't it is protected and than it goes down from there--I believe they would get the 2009 pick if not in the top 10, the 2010 pick if not in the top 6, etc...I would have to believe that in the east the Heat will make the play-offs unless D Wade sits out the whole season!!

Big Pine --

Right on. I think we will be waiting on that pick for a while.

I hunt in your area -- the Butler township area north of Perham. I saw a heck of a nice buck the night before rifle opener -- that figures. I was sitting with binocs instead of bow hunting. I kinda blew that one and he was a wall-hanger for sure. 14 pt. I think.

A ring would be nice, but getting them competitive again will take some time.

I dunno, McHale stuck Miami by getting a pick out of the deal. I would have done the deal with the players straight up, but he managed to GET a pick instead of GETTING RID OF a pick. That's huge for him.

You have to look at the contracts we got rid of for what we got. McHale is probably already looking into trading 'Toine, and if we're stuck with him oh well, better than two overpaid stiffs.

It's a good trade for the wolves, but if you want to put it in pathological terms, it's like trading two cancers for one and getting chemotherapy. (Cap relief and draft picks are the chemo for those that don't understand this strange analogy)

Went to the game tonight. Big Al had some flashes. He had like 3-4 possessions in a row where he pulled down the defensive rebound every time, and showed an array of moves in the post. I wish he was a couple inches taller but he is showing some flashes.

Ryan Gomes looked pretty good. He seemed out of breath all night, so he better get some conditioning before the season starts. Lots of garbage points and rebounds.

Telfair looked allright. He had a few nice dishes.

Brewer looks the part of a rookie all the way. He can sure jump out of the gym. Turned the ball over, got silly fouls, and didn't understand his role in the offense or when he should look to score. He can defend all right, but he needs to tune his "O" game.

I'm glad the Wolves didn't draft Yi Jianlin. Looked terrible tonight. Got rejected by Bassy Telfair, got barely knicked on a couple fouls and couldnt' get the ball above the rim. He can't finish at all. Soft inside and on the boards.

Theo Ratliff was moving pretty well tonight. He said in the press a couple weeks ago that this was the healthiest he has been in years. If he can hold up he may put in a good year and sucker a team into one last nice contract.

McCants probably was most impressive tonight. Created his own shot and hit some tough baskets. Didn't really fill up his other stats, but he went 8-8 for 20 points in 32 minutes.

Most underwhelming was Gerald Green. After missing a couple shots and jogging back and getting beat he got pulled, then he pouted and sulked on the bench. It's too bad because I really wanted the Wolves to take him in the 2005 draft. It's apparent he still has lots to learn

It was kind of a garbage ball handling and passing night. The timberwolves dropped the chalupa with 106 points to Milwaukee's 85. They also had 30 turnovers to the buck's 27. 57 combined turnovers. Yucky basketball. How did they win by 20? By shooting 20% better than the bucks. They were getting all sorts of layups and open midrange shots in the first half. I don't know if it's new players, new systems, or poor conditioning but things are still out of sync. Tonight was two teams that are going to be very poor this year going at it.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!
