      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 .

triple AAAA twins

it seems the twins of late have been another minor leuage team. we sign the best prospects, then when they become great, we let them leave. teams like the yankees and sox must love teams like the twins. if anyone becomes good or great, they will get them.

baseball needs a salary cap big time. of course guys like steinbrenner will be 100 percent against that. mad.gif

Heard on a radio station, next years Twins slogan, ( The 2008 Minnesota Twins get to know them. Then watch them play somewhere else.)

I think the Twins are doing the right things so far this off-season. Torii Hunter is NOT worth the 90 mil. the Angels shelled out for him. He is an awesome centerfielder and has only had one good year at the plate. That year just happened to be his free-agent year. The Twins were counting on him having just an "average" year at the plate coupled with his usual month long stay on the disabled list. If this would have happened he would still have been a Twin and probably signed the 3 year deal. At 90 mil for 5 years you have to tip your hat to him and wish him the best. Santana is just plain unsignable for the Twins. There is no way the Twins or 90% of the other major leaugue teams are going to be able to afford his asking price--upwards of 135-150 million. That's why there is only the Yanks/Boston/Angels and Met's even in trade talks with the Twins. Trade him and be done with it. In doing so we are going to be receiving some young "stars" in return. I'm excited about the Twins future and back them 100% in what they are doing right now.

I agree with you Zepman. Its good to hear some level headed thinking out of someone.

It is what it is, and the twins try to make the best out of what they have. Although I do think they could sign a few free agents once and a while.

Imagine that, a player having a breakout season on a contract year. How often do you hear that then their production tails off once they sign for the big money. It will be interesting to see what happens to Torri next few years.

If Torii starts to swing like he did when J Jones was with the Twins, he'll stink. If he continues to be selective like the last two years with Mauer and Morneau, he'll be fine. Trouble is he is now teammates with someone who swings more freely than JJ in Pedro Guerrero.

      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there.

      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious

      8Went out locally here thanksgiving mornin on three inches of solid ice hot into the eyes really well. A week later whole place was open water again so we went out in the kayaks got 14 eyes than went out again now that ice is back went to same lake and had a rough weekend we only managed to get three all weekend. Went out on all local lakes they are all sketchy at best. Few more days to solidify that bad ice and should be good to go. Went to shakopee in onamia and there was a solid 10 inches out there.
