      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 .

Pohlad dropping all salary

Here's my thoughts on the Twins.

They aren't going to spend anymore money.

They're going to dump as much salary as possible, meaning Hunter and Santana are gone.

Carl's only "World Series" left to win was a new stadium.

Dump salary, take in as much revenue with the new stadium, and just before attendance completely drops off, dump the team, either to his son(s) or highest bidder.

The current ownership group strictly runs it like a business, meaning no monies from other businesses to support it. What it makes, is what it makes.

The last thing they had to do was get a new stadium and now that's been "won".

Just get as much money back, and either dump the team, or go back to the mid 90's.

Just another opinion. What if they did sign Hunter and Santana for another three or four years. You would have them around for the opening of the new stadium plus a year. If they kept up the level of play, they'd be up for Rocky Mountain size piles of money. If not, they'd retire. You'd have big names for two years then rebuild. If they got whatever they could for Santana and put the Hunter type money into some new blood they might have a new crop of "heros" that they could tie up for longer periods of time after the stadium is up and running. It may not be too impressive for now but they might be actually looking at a brighter picture for the long haul.

Hunter will be a Texas Ranger and they will bring in someone (Coco Crisp), for less than 1/2 his salary.. Thats one scenario I have read about at least..

My bet is that Hunter will end up in Texas.

You guys keep forgetting about the Windy City. I hear tings. "What kind of tings". Tings, I hear tings.

Raging Bull quote.

Mr Hunter might look mighty fine in the Black and Silver patrolling center field here in the Windy City.

I think it is so. And I said Tings, though Tori will be able to score plenty of Bling on the Mag Mile here in the Windy with his new overbloated salary. Like I said in another post, as long as it is OPM (other peoples money) I say bring it on. I don't own stock in the Pale Hose so load that salary up, make Georgie Porgie nervous in the Big Apple!

Lawdog,

Tori had two face to face meetings with Kenny Williams and found out the Sox were going to cap their offer at 75 mil for the 5 years, when the Halos opened up the piggy bank and went 15 million higher did you really expect Tori to go into details about the teams that didn't bid higher? What are you thinking man, has the cold weather froze your brain already up there?

You all really do know that Pollad's net worth is irrelevant, don't you? Do you guys really think any of the owners this side of Steinbrenner digs into their own pockets to pay for a player? It's a business. If we want big name players we will have to pay for them. I think the Twins are still the lowest priced tickets in MLB. I'm sure once the new stadium is built the prices will be higher and the team will get all revenues from the games. None of the baseball revenue will go to the Vikings anymore. Maybe then, you might hear the Twins name come up in free agent season.

Take a look at the 2008 prices. Cheapest lower level seat is now $30. And it's $50 behind the plate (as if you can get those without some connections...) Even the Home Run Porch is $20 next year. Maybe they're still low compared to other league parks, but it's getting tougher to treat the family to a game under the teflon sky...

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

For us the only thing that was working leadcore with cranks 18-24fow looks of eaters but not one over 18" couldn't get the digging raps rigs or jog and minnow to go but I'm sure it's not far off caught about half of mine on cranks when I was turning and didn't seem to matter weather the pole was on the inside or outside 2.2 2.4 was our speed flicker shads and deep runner raps #5 and 7. Cliff what style and size of hook do u use for your minnow rigs? Any beads used?

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
