      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 .

Geno,

You won't have your favorite "fluke" to kick around anymore in the Windy. Big Jon Garland is traded to the Halos for Orlando Cabrerra. I like this deal a lot. Any takers for a fat shortstop that hits about .260 and strikes out a lot???

is this a salary clearer to make a big push for Hunter?

From what I read they just resigned Uribe. Talk is either moving Uribe to 2nd or a utility role or possibly making another trade to bring in some pitching.

You are correct sir! Word in the Windy is that the Hunter is already a done deal! They are fitting Tori in his Black and Silver right now. The skinny is that you will have a fully recovered Scott Posednik as the lead off with Cabrera as the #2 and Hunter will fit in nicely with the speed aspect. We hear they are looking at possibly trading Crede with Ozuna coming back and the might have Uribe and Ozuna at third. Richar may be the second basemen and they are looking at Jerry Owens as their 4th outfielder with speed. They may go into the meetings looking to shore up the bullpen and they are counting on their big three starters for 15 wins each Vasquez, Contreras and Buehrle. Gavin Floyd and John Danks will round out the starters. They may look for a veteran starter on the cheap and may want to add a left fielder but only if the deal is right. AJ will be back as will Dye, Konerko and Thome so things are looking pretty good on the south side of Chicago, they will look even better after Hunter's autograph is on the contract!

Just remember who told you first that the Pale Hose had their sites on Mr. Hunter! Your ole pale Windy!

Yep, I was right....F-L-U-K-E! And you have the nerve to make fun of Prior's salary?

"15 wins each"??? Stop it, you're killing me (ROTFLMAO)!

You sure do know things. It is all over the papers and the internet and radio. smirk.gif

You can have him for what your owner will overpay to get him. He is gonna take 5, but I am guessing Kenny gives him 6 years 90 mill. Another aging vet to add to your team. Thome, Dye, Hunter, Contreras, Pods and AJ. You guys will be in the tank in 2 years. I am not too worried.

Willy,

They might be in the tank in 2 years with another trophy on the mantle. It is great to hope for the future but when you are at or near the top you have to strike while the iron is hot. They tanked last year and Kenny is not going to let that happen again. Reload man, it's not my money he is spending! Look at all the years Georgie Porgie has put a playoff team in the hunt by overspending.

If it is your checkbook they are using then I could see getting all giddy over my teams low salaries but if it is OPM (other people's money) then I say buy now pay later! Look at the Twinks, by the time Liriano gets back and dominates the league you will have lost Hunter and Santana will be on the way out. You guys will be back to your 1 guaranteed win a week and then a crap shoot and still no ring on your finger! I say, Get the ring on the finger this year not in 5 years cause sometimes like Garth Brooks says...Tomorrow Never Comes!

Alright. But what I am saying is that Dye is done, Pods is done, Contreras is close to done and Thome will likely be hurt half the season. You still have plenty of holes.

What does your bullpen and the rest of your starters look like other than Buerhle and Vasquez? Neither of which I am sold on for next year.

The White Sox are turning into the Orioles of the Central. You have Detroit and Cleveland as the cream of the crop of the division with the White Sox trying to get up to their level, but just won't be able to make the climb. True they aren't compete with the Big Spenders of Boston and New York, but Detroit and Cleveland aren't going to sit back and do nothing. Unfortunately for the White Sox they're main competition isn't a team that is reserve and low budget when it comes to making moves to improve a ballclub such as the Twins anymore. I think they are trying to make the right moves, but as mentioned they have some aging veterans who are on the downside of their careers. Unfortunately, I think the window of opportunity has passed for the current White Sox group and the time right now belongs to the Tigers and Indians.

Thought Hunter was being fitted for his Suks uniform. Wrong. Oh and we do have 2 rings to you're 1. They might be a little cruddy looking, but we got them. Enough living in the past. You're suks still suck.

Right you are Bass,

The Halos came out of nowhere. I thought Tori wanted to stay near his hometown, funny how Texas gets a little closer to LA when you throw 90 million at the scenery! Move did take the Sox by surprise though they had capped their offer at 75 million over the 5 years. When it all comes down to it you can throw out all the BS and "follow the money". Stay near my home, right. Go to a contender, right. Just follow the money and the benjamins rule all. Enjoy those dollars in LA Tori.

Oh, and by the by my little grasshopper, the Pale Hose have three championships to your two, know your history before you start slinging attempted mud my little green friend!

Zamboni,

They count in Chicago's trophy case, just ask the Yankees if any of their 26 (?) trophies are any less desireable. Fact is we have 3 and you have 2, end of discussion.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
