      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 .

What could the Tigers be thinking?

In a move that appears to signal a commitment to playing Felix Pie in center field, the Cubs are on the verge of dealing Jacque Jones to the Detroit Tigers for the versatile Omar Infante.

Infante, last an everyday player with Detroit in 2004, is a right-handed hitter and considered adequate in center field. He started 10 games there in 2007, keeping Curtis Granderson from having to play against the toughest left-handed pitchers. That would figure to be his role with the Cubs, who still dream of Pie developing into a player of Granderson’s caliber.

Jones is entering the final season of his three-year contract with the Cubs. He has been inconsistent during the last two seasons but emerged as a contributor after being moved from right field to center last season.

Infante is eligible for arbitration after a season in which he hit .271 with a .307 on-base percentage and .355 slugging average in 66 games. The Cubs still would figure to save almost $3 million in the deal, unless they are also sending some cash to Detroit. That was unclear on Monday morning when reports of the deal surfaced.

The Cubs have made Pie’s development a focal point of their winter. Hitting coach Gerald Perry traveled to the Dominican Republic to work exclusively with Pie, and Lou Piniella is planning a trip later in the winter.

The apparent decision to move Jones comes at a time when the Cubs are seeking a left-handed-hitting right fielder. He was in that role in 2006 but did not play as expected at the plate or in the field, where his throwing arm allowed opponents to run with impunity.

The Cubs have been exploring a deal with Japanese free agent Kosuke Fukudome, who has played center field in Japan. They are believed to have more interest in him in right field, however. They ended last season with Cliff Floyd and Matt Murton platooning in right, and neither is a true right fielder. Floyd filed for free agency and is not expected to re-sign.

they are thinking give up nothing and get a slightly above average free swinging back-up left fielder in the last year of his contract

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
