      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 .

Twins at Chisox

Twins took 2 of 3 from Baltimore and are 1/2 game back heading into Chicago for a three game set. This is what I call baseball.

We need to win this one!

big series, no doubt about that. But with the way both the Sox and Twins are playing-- I'am thinking it will likely come down to the last 3 games of the year between the Sox and Twins at the Dome. Almost would be a shame with the way this season is carrying out if those last 3 games don't mean win or go home.

This is about the fifth "critical" series these three teams have had in a month. The schedulers got this one right. They games truly are all big at this point. Get three or five games behind anybody and you might be done. The Red Sox are feeling that right now. From division contention to seriously wounded in the wildcard chase in under a week. That said, the Twins just don't give up. They are still in this hunt for awhile. no matter what happens in this Sox series.

I can't wait for the game tonight, my plane leave's at 1pm and lands at O'Hare at 2:15pm and be drinking by 3. We have really good seats for this series and looking forward to sitting with all the Sox fans.

You watch the Red Sox get back into this thing and it will be all ESPN talks about.... the lead in every night.... Big Papi this, Manny that, Papelbunk this, Affleck that.... All I'm saying is that we can only hope the Red Sox continue mediocrity so that either the Twins and Chi Sox can get some recognition. I heard Mike & Mike this morning and they were talking about the top MVP canidates... Big papi, Jeter (whatever), Dye, Mauer & Morneau. I agree these are the top canidates, I just for some reason don't like Jeter as much as the others. Sorry, didn't mean to hi jack this thread.... Twins take 2 of 3 games this weekend.

Yep, another huge series. We have a great chance to take the first two with Radke and Santana going. Silva is another matter. Sometimes he's on, sometimes he's pitching BP.

I think you are dead right mudcutter, it will come down to the last series of the year. I didn't know its going to be at the dome though. That will be a crazy series.

Don't forget the Tiger's; they aren't exactly playing stellar baseball right now, and are following the footsteps of the Bosox. There could be a big Tiger choke on the horizon with Minnesota and White Sox winning the division and WC. With Radke and Santana on the mound for game #1 and 2, our solid bullpen, and the Twin hit parade, plus our recent sucess against Chicago, I like the Twins to win the series.

I like the Twins for 2 out of 3, but even if we only get one, we should still be in alright shape.

Buzz, I agree with you. I hate ESPN. The Red Sox are a mediocre team and there is no way in heck that Jeter should be considered for MVP. Mauer either for that matter. It should come down to Ortiz, Dye, Morneau, or Haefner(who doesn't get any recognition but is better than all of those guys).

I agree Hafner is getting ignored probably more then anyone. He's been a stud this year. But since his team is losing its hard to always seen what he's doing.

Twins win 5-4. Rough start by Radke but the bull pen held strong. Nice mid-game rally. Finally back in the wild card seat. I hope they keep it going.

Silva is due for a good start. Every other he seems to do well. Buerhle is horrible. My prediction is Twinkies win 9-4.

Only 5 games behind Detroit. Although I don't think they'll fall out of 1st. There pitching is to good.

Another nail biter. The Sox are rarely out of a game with so much power in the line-up.

They would have been out of this one had Ozzie not taken their ACE out of the game when he did... they do indeed have power, but what happened to the pitching staff?

Life is good smile.gif, when the Sux get beat by anybody, and when the TWINS take two straight at their place....wow grin.gif

Here's my wish list: Twins stretch out the lead enough by the last series of the year so that series is a non-factor!

Great baseball for sure. I even like the "symbols" of this team better than the homer hanky days, too. Thank-you Ozzie!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I posted a bunch of stats bashing the Sox pitching months ago. We're in complete agreement on their unremarkable starting rotation Buzz. IMO, Windy is right about the bats keeping the Sox in this thing. He has made numerous predictions that they will run away with the division soon. That is a gross overstatement in my opinion, but I don't think they will fall out, even if there pitching remains the same. How many here can honestly state they don't get real nervous when most of the Sox line-up steps to the plate, late in a close game. About 7 of them can go yard on a good pitcher.

I'm becoming a bigger Twins fan everyday, so don't confuse this post with Twinkie Bashing. smile.gif

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.
    • Reel_Magic
      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update
    • Rancid Crabtree
      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. 
    • gimruis
      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
