      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 .

Wolves - Who's on the way out?

Recommended Posts

AWH

The Wolves need to trim 3 from their roster by Monday. Who's next to be on their way out? Predicitions? Rumors? Looking at the roster, the only lock (in my opinion) to be gone is John Edwards. If you believe McHale, one or two of the players we got from the Heat won't be here in a week. But Antoine (if my sources are correct) can't be traded for 15 days. I keep hearing rumors that Telfair will be cut. I'm not a Telfair fan, but I can't see that with how thin they are at the point...unless there's something in the works to bring in another one.

Edwards, Doleac, Simien, and that last cut that I wish they didn't have to make: Chris Richard. Hopefully McHale could make one more move to get rid of a bad contract (Jaric, Walker, or Buckner), get a draft pick, and save a roster spot. But McHale has now made enough savvy moves to last for another 10 years, so I'm sure he'll go back to trading away draft picks and signing crappy veterans over the weekend.

I really like Chris Richard but you already have that type of player in Craig Smith. They way things are looking in the frontcourt, they will need Richard.

Maybe I'll be able to pick out that last cut after tomorrow. I'm going to their last home preseason game against Milwaukee. The roster could get turned on its head before Monday rolls around.

Walker can't be traded for 60 days unless it is a 1 for 1 trade. McHale is trying to find a taker for Jaric. I hate Walker. All he does is float around the 3 point line and chuck the ball when he gets it. I hope he goes quick.

Juwan Howard got bought out today. I guess the Wolves want to hold onto Doleac. I guess GLen Taylor is made of money. Make atheltes stick to their contract, we didn't owe Howard anything, why'd we buy him out?

i'm with ya on that. the one thing he can do is score in the low post. he kills guys down there, but it is such an afterthought with him. all he wants to do is stand outside and shoot that flat shot of his. he has on of the worst release points in the nba

Looks like the wolves added a player rather than getting rid of one. We traded for Beno Udrih from San antonio for a 2008 second round draft pick. What do you guys think of Beno I haven't seen him play much.

I don't know much about Beno. But on the surface, I'd say it's a good trade. Only giving up a 2nd round pick, which rarely pan out, especially when McHale is making the decision. One second round pick in 12 years has amounted to anything. So giving up essentially nothing for a player that can provide some minutes backing up the point is a good move.

Beno has played 3 years and has seen 10 to 14 minutes a game for the Spurs every year. So he has to have some ability if he's been seeing consistent minutes for a franchise like that. The one down side I see just looking at his stats is that his numbers haven't improved from his rookie year. I guess we'll find out what he can do with the Wolves when he doesn't have the big guns to rely on like he did in San Antonio.

Beno's career as a Timberwolf is over!!! Here's the details on the trade. Kind of a weird trade. But essentially, it allowed the Wolves to get some money for little risk.

The Wolves picked up a little cash in a bookkeeping move that helped San Antonio get under the salary cap. The Wolves traded a conditional second-round pick to the Spurs for money and guard Beno Udrih. The Wolves waived Udrih and the pick will be lost only if the Wolves finish with one of the four top records in the NBA this season.

I think it's a pretty safe bet that the Wolves will get that pick back...

So I have a question about Walker, do any of you think the wolves could be included in the Kobie trade, with the wolves being a 3rd team involved in the trade? Maybe use him for his salary to help offset some of Kobie's salary to whatever team ends up with him?

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      Hey all, I am looking to catch a decent perch in the 7" or bigger range and soon because in my class at school we get to taxidermy a fish and I would like to do a yellow perch, I have fished little Pulaski for 2 days and Buffalo for one and caught nothing on Buffalo lake and some bluegills and bass on little pulaski. Anyone got advice on spots in little Pulaski or Buffalo lake or just another lake near by Buffalo as well for perch? Thanks - jim
