      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 .

Big series with the White Sox in town this weekend. Twins just took the first one!!! With Radke and Santanna coming up, this could be the surge to post season that the Twins need.

Thanks for starting the thread, I was starting to wonder if anybody would. Boof pitched pretty good last night against a very good lineup and the bullpen did what it always does "shuts the door". I was badmouthing Torri last night and he comes up and doubles, then I badmouth him again and he hits a tater! I'm just going to keep badmouthing him and maybe the fools from Chi-town will keep hurling fast balls down the middle for him and maybe Ozzie will intentionally walk anybody to get to Morneau. Smart guy!! I understand the lefty rightyt thing, but Morneau has been our best and most dangerous hitter most of the year.

I know what you are saying buzzsaw. I was at the game last night and I couldn't believe they walked Cuddyer to get to Morneau. I understand the righty lefty thing too, but I would've wanted to face Cuddyer, who had struck out twice before that at bat, before Morneau. Oh well, I won't complain. grin.gif

Should be another good game tonight. Radke has been pretty dialed in lately and we need another good start from him.

Did anyone see our ex twin catcher Pierzynski. Do the sniff out runs thing(touch his nose) when he got back safely to first in that run down. What an arragant ****hole. I never liked him. I'm sorry, but that just pi**ed me off.

I agree. He's a di** head. Can't stand him.

Twins lose 4-1. Honestly, our defense was really sloppy tonight.

I've always been neutral towards A.J., and I always get pissed when people boo him at the Dome. It doesn't make sense to me, he was apart of one of the best trades ever, he didn't leave voluntarily for more money, why should he be booed? But tonight when he did the smell'em nose touch thing, that irked me. I'm not sure if he even technically got an RBI, but even so, he looked right at our dugout when he did it to rub it in.

Hopefully Santana will have a good start tomorrow.

Sorry but I loved AJ and I still like him. He is a good player and just has a lot of heart for his team. Now he is on a different team and everyone hates him. He Plays the game hard and has a lot of passion. Try getting that out of jerks like Manny Ramirez or Sammy sosa. I wish AJ was on a team I did not hate, that way I could cheer him on whole heartedly and enjoy watching him succeed. But no, he is on the terrible whitesox so I have to hope he does bad. Or I could hope he does good and the team still looses. Friendly

confused.gif I wouldn't wish that on anyone. No matter how much I dislike them.

Santana pitched a great game today. Especially since he pitched nearly the whole game out of the stretch. Sure is nice seeing the twinkies hand it to the sox. 5-1 in the last six with another series next weekend.grin.gif Hopefully we take care of business in Baltimore and Detroit will beat up on the Sox in the next 4 games.

2 out of three!!

Radke pitched good enough , too, only a couple miscues and plain BAD LUCK on Castillo's hit-the-ump ball down the line, separated the score. Not many ML pitchers can stay in it with a 82 mph fastball like he did yesterday. I hope he is teaching Bonzer and Garza how to "pitch" before he retires.

With Detroit hitting a bump in the road lately, it could be a very interesting race down to the wire, yet. smile.gif

I wouldn't get to worked up about AJ. He's just like that. Remember the beam-fest's that these two teams would get into a couple of years ago?

We needed the series this weekend and got it. Let's hope the train keeps on rollin. Next stop Camden yards!

Nice series by the Twinks, about what I expected in the Baggie Dome. Much better seeing the Rangers handle the Kitties. The real series starts tomorrow. 4 with the dreaded Kitties. By this time Thursday, my beloved Pale Hose could be a mear 1.5 games out of first and the Twinks could be 2.5. Just wondering....Who will all you Twinkie lovers be cheering for in the next four games??? Pale Hose or Kitties...Pick your poison!!! Windy

OR the Sux could be 9.5 out after that series too. That would be my preference, with the TWINS going on a 10-12 game win streak in the next 3 series. laugh.gif

Friendly,

That's what I was hoping for when the Twinks and Kitties faced off. Looks like this one is going down to the wire. I have a feeling that pitching should be the key but for some crazy feeling, I think that the power in the Sox bats is what is going to win the thing this year. The Kitties look like deer in the headlights right now and the Twinks and Sox are starting to chug into action. We may both pass the Kitties up and leave them back in Motown come October (what a dreary place that would be after ruling the roost for most of the season, eh?) Windy

I'm hope Detroit takes 3 out of 4......but my gut says Sox win 3 out of 4...... then again I thought Boston would win 3 or 4 games against the Yanks....

What a race..... grin.gif

I think the real series was this weekend Windy. You guys should be more worried about us catching you than you catching the Tigs. They are starting to slide a little bit though.

Nice to see the Twins take it to the Sox although Garland did look pretty good Saturday night.

I've gotta feeling this one is gonna come down to the last series of the year.

I really do not want to be in that dreary place come October. After the year we have had (so far), it would be tough. Our bats seem to have quieted down. In August, we have played the big guys. Tigers have lost 9 of the last 12. If that continues............ We do show up and play hard, every game. We are still pitching well. Just not scoring enough runs. Yesterday we gave up six, but prior to that we seldom gave up more than three. Bonderman had a bad outing. First one in a long time. All in all, I still like our chances. It's not quite a "deer in the headlights" thing yet. We do need to get back to winning. And soon. White Sox Tigers series will be won by whoever pitches best (Like that's a new concept). Hope we can do the Twins a favor.

Glad to see Windy with some guarded optimism these days.

I see my Cubbies are trying to help the Tigs by sending ol' man Neifi there. Me? I don't care who wins more games in the Det/CWS series so long as by the end of it the Twins move to 1st in the WCard and the Sox have dropped to 2nd, or even 3rd.

Would somebody else's misfortune make up for the lousy and continued futility exhibited by our northside brethern? I guess misery must love company. Not much to cheer for up in the land of the light loafers this year, eh? Windy

Yeah Windy, even your ace Contreras now has an ERA over 4.0

Thats bad news for your team. Although I would still take him over all but two of our pitchers. And one of those two is hurt. So the twins still have their own problems to be concerned with. But the good thing of it is, since Liriano has been out, the twins have not lost any ground. How does that work? WIth all that said, it will go down to the wire. And may the best team win(darn I still think chicago is a better team). The heck with it may all of chicago's guys go into slumps and let the twins slide by. Now that sounds a little better.

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!  
    • Wanderer
      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water.
