      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 .

Aaron Rowand & Andrew Jones & Mike Lowell in my mind are the big ones out there.

How about Torii Hunter? He is a big free agent!

Hunter will get a contract that will skew deals for everyone else.

I think the 'hot' free agents will be Hunter and Lowell. Posada signed yesterday, A-Rod is so outrageously priced that only four or so teams could even think about it, and Rivera is still good enough for a lot of teams but he might be on the downhill side of his career. There are a lot of teams that need a third baseman and Hunter is still on of the top two or three outfielders in the majors. They can make any contending team improve their chances. They won't be cheap but most teams can find the dollars to consider either one.

I'm guessing that the next Rondell (Craig Monroe) isn't on this list. Oops, too late.

With A-Rod mentioned and Posada, Andruw Jones mentioned, how about Barry Bonds? Or the Brew Crew's closer Cordera?

Lots of Yankees out there-Rodriguez, Posada, Rivera, Pettite, and a couple more I think?

Probably will end up being another relatively unheard of foreign player, like Dice-K. I didn't know who that guy was until free agency started and the grainy video and stories were all over the internet. Who knows.

Silva is going to cash in big time since there are really no big name pitchers out there. Bartolo Colon could be had for cheap because of his injuries. Luis Castillo is out there. Eric Gagne. I seen the Yankees offered Rivera 3yrs for 45 million. 15 mil a year for a closer on the downside. Unreal. I like baseball free agency because its fun to watch the mid market teams over bid on the players they want. Like when Toronto gave BJ Ryan a bunch of money and when small market Kansas City gave Gil Meche 55 mil for 5 years. The Phils gave Adam Eaton a bunch of money too. I hope A-Rod signs in Colorado. Could you imagine the numbers he would put up there? I know it won't happen but it is always fun to speculate.

A-Rod called a meeting with the Spankees and has decided he doesn't want to go anywhere. But guess who wasn't invited to the meeting- Scott Boras.

Tony Clark has emerged as a DH/1B possibility. I've always liked him and I think with enough at-bats he'll be productive. Plus, he's probably a bargain. His 2007 salary was $1,034,000. A certain spare infielder will make that much and be less productive.

Tony the (former) Tiger?

Ick.

Here we go again, just get some old guys, or guys with bad years and hope for the best.

It is hard to blame Hunter when they do this type of stuff.

I seen Glavine re-signed with the Braves. 1-yr for 8 or 9 million. How old is Glavine anyway....82. Seems like it anyway. I also seen Luis Castillo re-signed with the Mets for 4 years.

      Lots of birds kept spots open and the snow covered them now. It’s dangerous if you just rush out. Take your time if you are going to Ann lake or Lori or any in that area.  This my stomping grounds and there only one lake I would fish in the area

      Fished from 0815-1230 today out from McKinley out to 26 FOW. Found about 10.75 inches good ice with snow cover varying from 2 inches up to close to a foot in the soft drifts but still not too bad for hiking while dragging the flip over. Had decent action from 0830-0930 bringing up 8 walleyes less than 12 inches long, a 12 inch perch and 2 tullibees all released. About 50-50 on set line vs glow jigging spoon both with chubs. Not sure why I couldn't connect on better quality fish. Still a nice morning with the snow lightly falling and peaks of sun. Good running into you, Cliff! Hopefully we'll cross paths again this winter.

      I may make it over to Elysian, Francis, or Tetonka this Saturday. Depends what I find on the Mississippi tomorrow afternoon. From what I have heard the ice on the backwaters around Winona and La Crosse may actually be in better shape than that around Waseca and Faribault, which is kind of odd for early ice. Usually the south-central MN lakes freeze up just a bit quicker.
    • JIvers
      I'd be surprised if there were much good ice on Bartlett this weekend--that deep water with a bit of current takes a while to freeze--but I may go out and take a look anyway tomorrow when I am up in the area getting my first ice fix of the year in. Anyone got any early ice reports for the Mississippi backwaters around Winona and Lacrosse? I'll be adding mine tomorrow night.
