      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 .

for real. let MLB handle it's own issues. our "elected officials" have much more important things to handle than to dip their noses in this kind of stuff.

Let them have their noses in baseball, it keeps them out of the other stuff they shouldnt have their noses in!

The way I look at it was if the players did it before it was ilagal, who cares, admit you did it everyone did then! If it was afterwards then kick them out of baseball, to not play pro baseball again, then I bet that would prevent future players from doing it!

People we are talking about breaking federal laws. Steroids are illegal to possess without a prescription from a licensed physician. It is illegal for individuals to sell steroids.

This is why the Gov. is involved.

Clemens is just as guilty as the rest.

Napa,

The real reason the feds are in on this is the anti-trust exemption that MLB has. There is talk about a huge lawsuit of fraud and such with the players being juiced. Just what I am hearing in the Windy these days.

PS I love your avatar....Veddy Nice!

im not so sure if he is guilty or not. I wish i could believe him, but im just not sure. For everything that he has done for the game of baseball, and the player that he is on the field, i hope that its not true that he was taking HGH, becuase he was a class act all the time on the field.

Macnamar or whatever his name is claims to have physical proof now such as needles aand vials that will have Clemens DNA on it and HGH and steriods so we can see what comes of that tomorrow when he turns that in.

thats correct. I was watching SC tonight, and he said that back in 2000 and 2001, he kept everything for proof becuase he figured that Clemens would lie about the whole situation somewhere down the line.

Its going to be interesting to see what happens in the next few weeks.

Wow,

I can't believe he would go to that extreme but you know Clemens will come up with some crazy conspiracy theory and say that he had MacNamee give him a B12 shot and then kept the syringe and put roids in after he emptied the B12 into his rear!

Sometimes I wonder if Clemens thinks this will just all go away or what. The bottom line with all of these guys is some of their best years every came when they should have been sliding and thinking of retirement.

I have lost all respect for Clemens, what a tool! Now his smarmy mouthpiece is equating the Congressional Investigation with the Duke rugby player incident. Yea, let's throw the entire US Political structure under the bus so one over the hill egotistical blowhard whose only redeaming quality of his life was his ability to throw a rawhide sphere 60 feet 6 inches better than most people can keep his self centered ego in tact and try to be inducted into a hall of fame for said sport so that other like minded people whose abilities were less than his can go to this shrine and worship at his bronze likeness! Give me a friggin break!

What do you call 10,000 lawyers chained together at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean?.....A Good Start!

sounds like a real class act. Gives someone illegal steroids then keeps the evidence for almost ten years just in case the user lies about it. What was he thinking? I'll come forward with this in the future when my rear is the one sticking out. Now I read he claims he saw Clemens at a party he himself was not at.

Be careful which horse you saddle up with guys! I heard that they were both at that party along with wives and family but were not there the entire time. And as for keeping the evidence, sounds like a good business practice to me. If I were dealing with high profile figures in illegal substances I would keep whatever necessary if the feces ever hit the fan. You know the high profile person will always get the benefit of the doubt because they are a beloved figure and they know how to get face time in the press and play that "aw shucks fellers, it wasn't me" and "I never had sexual relations with that woman" line of garbage. There are no clean hands in this case but I don't believe for one moment that McNamee's are the only paws that are dirty!

One its not evidence in anyway shape or form....PERIOD....it wouldn't be admissible in a kangaroo court!

That being said I don't think this changes the fact that Roger did a cycle or 2.

Pier,

Just like Sammy, McGuire and Barry just took their Flintstone vitamins, right? I agree that the evidence would not make it in the court of law or kangaroo but it the court of public opinion it speaks volumes and that is what Roger the Dodger is trying to sway!

No! they along with Roger and thousands of others have taken performance enhancing drugs the problem is much more wide spread than the general public believes or WANTS to believe.

If you were to name your favorite modern day athletes Windy I would say its almost certain they have taken PED's and it is certain the have taken GREENIES.."SPEED"

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.
