      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 .

Chicago got a freebie last night in the 9th trailing 3-0 they won 4-3 thanks to Cleavlands whickman. So tonight Chicago returned the favor. ff

Hey Buzz,

Twinkies had a nice season opener eh?

The baseball gods giveth and the baseball gods taketh away!

We won one yesterday that we deserved to lose and lost one today that we deserved to win. Any predictions on this weekend, I know that I have my silver and black broom ready. Sunday should be a honey of a game with Buehrle and Santana going at it in the baggie dome. Hopefully I will be chanting with the Hawkeroo...SOX WIN SOX WIN SOX WIN !

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD.....YES!

Hey windy, What do you have to say about your new catcher A.J. Pierzynski. I loved him when we had him but we had a guy name Joe Mauer comming up. Plus we go a good "closer" for him. Im sure you like him so far, seeing how he hit one out tonight. ff

Sorry, I don't even follow hockey, but I couldn't resist. Agree with you on the Twins taking 2 of 3. Can't believe Windy even thought of bring the broom out of the closet.

boilerguy,

I agree, Chicago will get swept by KC. Although they might get swept by the Twins first. That is the only question.

No question about it Twins are going to sweep the White Sox this weekend thanks to a good start to the series by Kyle Lohse. The rivalry will defanetly grow after this one.

You spoke too soon...

White Sox beat Twins

"White Sox top Twins with pair of homers..."

"Konerko and Rowand go deep in sixth inning..."

"Kyle Lohse...fell victim to the long ball...after a Jermaine Dye single, Aaron Rowand ended Lohse's night with one out in the sixth on his first home run of the season..."

twins don't look so good, having pitching problems, can't hit with runners on base, and there fielding sucks, but it will all come together. we need a good outing from mr cy young on national TV sunday night. the bad news is that silva may need surgery, and could be out a long time.

I'm sure you know his name now...Shingo Takatsu. He got his second save against your Twins last night...Radke and Twins lose again. (B. Radke, 0-2, 6.08 ERA).

One game away from that sweep... grin.gif

HELLO BUZZ and the rest of you Twinkie-Loving FM'ers!

Can any of you Minnesota regulars tell me where I can pick up a few brooms in the Minneapolis area tonight, maybe around 9 pm or so. I think I may need them. Got to love my boys just spankin' than Twinkie ARSE! Should be a good one tonight with Buerhle and Santana going I expect about a 2 hr game with maybe three runs total. Of course I also fully expect my beloved Pale Hose to have 2 of those three runs!

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD.....YES!

Hey Back Her Up,

Thanks for watching my back amongst all these poor misguided Twinkie lovers. I hope that some of the Windy City boys can help you and the Tigers this year, though not too much as I would hate to see them pass my beloved Pale Hose, but I would love to see them finish 2nd and be ahead of the Twinkies! Later, dude. Curt

Windy, I wondered when your would chime in. Thought for a second you forgot the sox beat the twins. Its nice to be the team that everyone hates, this usually happens after you have won alot of games or devision titles. tongue.gif Which reminds me, I sure you hate North Carolina for the same reasons.

As for brooms, forget it, santana and primetime only means one thing. A three or four hitter with maybee one or two runs. See ya at the game. ff

Well, I can empathize with your feelings. I'd like to finish first myself...but, second to the White Sox would still be an improvement over last year and they would still be on track. Just as long as we both finish ahead of those playfully hated and grossly over-rated Twins...

Friendly,

I hate to disagree with you but if you check one of the past threads on here you will see that I am not an Illini fan. I went to Northern Illinois University and two of my buddies went to Illinois and I love it when they lose. I actually predicted North Carolina's victory, by 7 points, I was two points off. I love North Carolina since it produced Chicago's greatest athlete of all time, one Michael Jeffrey Jordan. Talk to you soon, right after my beloved Pale Hose finish spankin' the ARSE of those Twinkies.

Back Her Up, hopefully Maggs, Farnsworth and the boys can help you to spank those Twinkies, just like my beloved Pale Hose are in the process of doing right now. Later, Curt

Unless you're a White Sox fan, I question why any Twins fan would want to go to that game? That stadium sucks. (See "Comerica Park" for a beautiful stadium)

The Twins will be exposed on national television...

Santana (1-0, 7.20 ERA!) won't be "on" tonight and will lose with no run support or bullpen help. I predict they lose 5-1 and Santana goes 5 1/3 innings, throws 98 pitches, gives up 4 runs (leaving his ERA at 6.97), strikes out 4, walks 4 and gets hit in the shoulder with a line drive off the bat of Joe Crede in the middle of the 5th and has to go on the 15-day D.L... grin.gif

BTW: Tigers come to Minnesota on Tuesday for 3 games, now that will be fun!

Backerup, Yes the dome is terrible but that does not stop a fan from seeing his favorite team. Once again, I never said the twins were a perfect team. They have their problems with run support and maybe defence but we will see who is on top at the end of the year. ff

It's nice to see Windy and Backherup have cuddled up to each other, IF your two teams were actually competing for division titles year after year I doubt that would be the case. When I think of you two I think about the scene from Tommy Boy where Farley says "Those aren't pillows"!! That would be you guys! grin.gifshocked.gifshocked.gif

Kudos to Detroit and the White Sox for their nice starts but I have three questions for Windy and Cantbackitup....

1) When will the White Sox figure out they still don't have any heart and fade away for the 3rd year in a row?

2) When will the Tigers fade away as the truely talented teams take over?

3) Backherup, where have you been? There are many unanswered questions from previous threads (including football) that you failed to respond to since you were last heard from. Nice of you to pop back into the picture when things go bad for our Twinks.

Again, congrats on your start, but a long way to go.

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?

      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.
