      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 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.

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

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      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!
