      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 .

Fresh Air Stadium?

Recommended Posts

Weed Shark

I’m curious how the new stadium will situate next to the Hennepin County garbage incinerator. I use to lease a space on the 9th floor of the Ford Centre. When the wind was right, my window was a whiteout of burnt garbage smoke. Will gas masks be needed in the upper deck when the wind is right? Nothing like a fresh air, outdoors stadium. I get to pay for it every day, living in Hennepin County. You know we’ll be crying for an indoor stadium again in 20-30 years. Until then, can we name this one the “Pohlad’s Poisonous Gas Emporium.”

They'll be screaming for a new stadium within 5 years.

Once the newness wears off, it's going to be more of a hassle for anyone from the east side to get there than the dome ever was.

Sure you can drive off of 394, but that's only good for people from the west.

Should have put it in Blaine, EP, whereever, build an entire road system to it, with acres of tailgating space.

It's going to be a complete failure where it's going.

I'll bet that burner will be moving up the road and we'll be paying for the reloaction.

I still think the best thing they coulda done was placed a side on some water, like San Fran, and made it something special to hit water bombs like Barry does out there. We mighta had ppl in kayaks trying to catch Morneaus 80th one day.

I had to drag this old thread up again.

Did you read today’s Star Tribune "Local" news article, "A Stinky Situation"?

It drives me crazy. Jeff Johnson and Gail Dorfman seem so surprised there is a problem. Who did the county's study? Where did common sense leave the equation?

The last time I drove downtown, the lower garbage incinerator smoke stacks were blowing at street level over Olson Memorial Highway.

In hindsight, maybe "...Pollution Emporium," or "Stench Stadium" sounds better.

Depending on wind conditions maybe can turn the incinerator on/off to gain a competitive advantage?

Big spending Hennepin County, wastes 100's of millions building a stadium in a horrible location. Now they're spending 2.3 million to change the garbage burner and install spritzers to spray garbage trucks with perfume (please...spray cheap flower fragrance on a fart and tell me if it smells any better). They also suggest garbage haulers not use the facility on game days because traffic will be too crazy.

It’s like when Captain Jack Sparrow gets accused of cheating and answers, "...pirate."

They were told it wouldn't stink, and I respond to them, "...garbage burner."

Really, the whole playing field is in foul territory.

How long will it be before they try to spend a fortune to move the garbage burner?

How long after that, until the want to build a new ballpark, in a different location, anyway? Not long, according to the above posts.

Yes, stadium stays and incinerator goes, but that won't be an easy task either, might have to get an amendment, or better yet, the ARTS portion of the CWA can fund moving it!

We are building a new stadium next to a garbage plant.

Was this Minnesota politics at its finest. We must have gotten a discount. Wait until the National network gets wind of it so to speak.

Alright! Another reason for not coming down to the cities or to go watch a Twins game, and I can go fishing or hunting instead! Thanks for the insite guys, I really only go to 1 or 2 games a year, so it won't hurt my feelings if I don't go to a game. I'd rather listen to them on the radio looking out at a lake or see them on the TV over a fresh fish fry anyways.

I'm just curious but why was the big push to keeping it downtown or in Mpls at all? Why not build it in a suburb like bloomington close enough to the airport for traveling teams and what not? I like the idea of having water next to the Stadium like in San Fran, but where would you build it down there? Every lake is developed, and I really don't see metro area folks driving to, for example Lake Mille Lacs for a Twins game if the stadium was built there.....again if there was room for development of a structure like that near the pond. So I guess its stuck next to the incinerator, and the Target Center.

I guess the twins will just have to play in a "good enough" stadium. Its disappointing when you think of what we could have.

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
