      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 .

Cabrera and D-Train headed for Detroit

Recommended Posts

maros91

Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis got traded to the Detroit Tigers for 6 prospects, one of them Andrew Miller. Detroit's lineup becomes potent adding Cabrera.

1. Curtis Granderson

2. Edgar Renteria

3. Carlos Guillen

4. Magglio Ordonez

5. Miguel Cabrera

6. Gary Sheffield

7. Ivan Rodriguez

8. Jacque Jones

9. Placido Polanco

SP

1. Justin Verlander

2. Kenny Rogers

3. Jeremy Bonderman

4. Dontrelle Willis

5. Nate Robertson

Looks like the Tigers want to make a serious run at the World Series next year. They should win the Central with Cleveland on their heels.

Not a good trade for Detroit. They gave up a five tool CF, and a pitcher in Miller who is actually headed in the right direction. Willis is young, but heading in the wrong direction.

Who knows who the 4 other prospects are as well.

It will definitely strengthen the Tigers next year... But I don't think it will fare that well for them in the future.

And how does a guy like Polanco hit 9th? They gotta keep him as the #2 hitter... Throw the newcomer Renteria somewhere else.

I was just throwing them out there as they came to mind. Renteria was just acquired this offseason so he was one of the firsts to pop up.

Detroit is going to be a tough team to beat this year. Yeah they gave up alot to get those 2 but they want to put a winning product on the field for the fans unlike the Twins.

They look good on paper.

Too bad we won't trade within the division, If the prospects are as good as you say. I say if you feel like it makes your team better, either now or for the future make the trade, regardless of what league or division the teams are in.

They will be tough for a couple years. However, they traded away their future to try to win it all now. Even better excuse for the Twins to rebuild and be competetive when the new stadium opens and the Tigs and Tribe are starting to age a bit.

Also, with Detriot getting Cabrera, I think it opens up more trading partners for the Twins. The same players up for big for Cabrera would be great for the Twins if they can get those west coast teams into the picture.

PS What about Inge for 3rd here? He hits for power and plays good defense. His strikeouts are high though.

Brandon Inge doesn't do anything for me. A below average hitter and very overpaid. I'd rather take my chances on a young guy that hasn't proven anything, but has some potential. Inge was paid $4.9 million in '07. Has only had one year where he hit better than .261 and only one year where he's had more than 16 homers. At the price Inge would come at, I'm not a fan of that option.

You know what I like about this trade for Detroilet? A proven star for a bunch of prospects. The odds are none of the prospects turn into a star, no matter what the hype. C'mon Twins.....

This trade will almost guarentee that the Yanks will be back in the picture for Santana. They see and hear rumblings of the Tigers AND Red Sox putting together line-ups like they are and it will drive them crazy. My bet is that Santana will be a Yankee before the new year arrives.

      Had another good weekend of fishing.  Fished Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon and found consistent action all hours of the day.  Caught 5 slotters 22-25", and was able to be picky on eaters, only keeping 15-17" walleyes.  Plenty of small eyes also, plus I caught 4 eelpout. I did learn a lesson on how to take eelpout off of the hook.  I tried to lift a 20" pout out of the hole by line and the hook pulled out and embedded the bobber in my styrofoam ceiling.  The next time I used the fish pliers to lift the slimy fish out. Had 10" of ice where I was, and a lot of large wheelhouses were being pulled out there.  Yesterday someone drove a Jeep out to a wheelhouse close by.  I think we will see a lot more vehicles driving out in the next week.  Fortunately the added weight hasn't pushed much water on top of the ice.

      I think the fourm would still be pretty strong....however when they split the fourm sites up & stuff and changed some things a few years ago it pretty much killed this site. Traffic is a crawl.....they blame it on new media like Facebook and other stuff......which is an excuse.....poor one at that.......the other ice fishing website I go to is stronger then ever.......This use to be my favorite site, today it's in sad shape & I only come because I remember what it once was hoping that it gets back to it someday.

      Big Marine had 8" at the north access out to the weeds before the main lake.  Lots of walkers, a number of wheelers.  5 inches past the weeds above the ice before the island.   Access was crazy...very inconsiderate people tripple parking, a guy I was with got parked in, trucks behind and in front of him.  Luckily I was parked beside him and was able to move enough that he could get his truck out.   Fishing was very slow.  Couple panfish, a bass and snake northern.

      I'm definitely itching to get on the river.

      I was out on Hiniker Pond last night. Had no luck with fish but I was after dark. Straight out from the pier about 30 yards you got a solid 3.75 to 4 inches. Duck lake has about 5 inches. Henry had 4 inches last week. Not sure about this week.

        Doc was up there with a couple of his boys on Thursday fishing out of portables.  He gave me a call when he was on the ice.  I said, “. Let me guess what you got on”.  Red stripe Demon with a female fat head hooked through the pooper hole on the dead stick and a purple smelt rattling flyer with a minnow head on the other pole.  I nailed it.  He still uses a jiggle stick for his dead stick.  He had to sign off as a fish came in on the Vex.  Put it in the bucket Shaky.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?
