      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 .

NL Central Race Heats Up

Recommended Posts

Well Tim, the battle for mediocracy continues into the stretch run. The Cards currently lead the division by .0004 winning percentage. What's that, a 1/25th game lead? smile.gif

My early call is the Cards will be back in front in a week based on scheduling. But if you don't close the deal right now, I like the Reds chances of taking the central. I think the Cards have better pitching, but the Reds appear hungrier.

Reds play the next 9 on the road vs contending teams SF, LA, SD

Cards play the next 9 at home vs CHC, FLA, PIT. Probably non-contending teams, now that the Cubs traded away Nefster P, "The Bunt King". Now isn't this a lot more fun than winning the division by 15 games Tim?

Go Cubbies, my favorite team this weekend!

Wow Tim, sounds like your frustrated with them. Reds have broken my heart many times, and they will probably do it again, but I just can't give up on them as long as they appear to be trying to win.

"Actually I am feeling a bit better spinner as my Browns topped the Bills 20-17"

Turning to the Cleveland Browns preseason schedule to raise your spirits? This could be far most desperate than I thought. We're here for you Tim. grin.gif

LMFAO! Spinner just saying that pleading my (Contact Us Please) off and dying after every pitch and lack of clutch perfomances and the team just not showing any life what - so- ever has gotten me mad.gif Walt Jockety as well as he said there were 2 or 3 Cardinals underperforming and unfortunately I know all 3 Edmonds, Isringhausen, Molina and I would mention Mulder as well. Well, I'm sticking with the reverse psychology so here it goes... I hope the Cards get there but kicked today mad.gif

Spinner,

Your Reds are keeping it interesting, but don't go buying any playoff tix while in the ME.

Tim,

You asked me to have them lay down, and so far they have. My only salvation has been watching the WSox slide into 3rd behind the Twins. Terrible to say, but this year I'm having more fun rooting against the Wsox than for the Cubs - pathetic!

So now you don't honestly believe that such a "powerful" lineup like the Cubs' (1 run in 2 games) can actually win the final of the series today, do you? And by the way, looks to me like it is the Mets' year, so don't blame Walt J - don't think there's anything he can do about that for the Cards.

I know exactly what you're saying Tim. The Reds nor the Cards deserve to play in October. I get aggravated with the Reds too. Griffey just watched a strike three pitch in the dirt sail past the catcher. Does he have time to advance to first? Probably, but we'll never know because he walked directly to the dugout instead of trying. What did I expect for $12 1/2 million. Same laziness from Adam Dunn sometimes.

Geno

Same here. I have really grown attached to the Twins this year. I have that same desire to see them knock the Chisox out of the playoffs. I don't expect it, but watch the race closely.

Who in the heck is Gary Bennett? He's a Cub killer and now since were finished with the Cubs he will go back to hitting .192. I'm predicting a Marlins sweep Spinner by the Marlins naturally got keep thing consistent. grin.gif I bet you can't wait for your Reds west road trip to end man you guys are getting killed out there. I see since the Red Sox don't have a prayer of getting back into the playoff race that there starters Ortiz and Ramirez are coasting through the rest of the season with aches in pains, why push it with the team tanking so bad and the Yankees on a roll...

Yes Tim, this may be all for the Reds. Losing the one run games we have been winning this year. Lohse finally pitched a bad game. (5 runs in only 5 IP). If he can't return to mediocrity, that will do it. Reds are a powerhitting machine that can't play small ball when we have to. Don't have the offense to overcome bad pitching. Our only playoff hope it to win the NL Central. I really never thought we could win the wildcard without .500 play on the west coast. But it was a fun year no matter how it ends. Unless we lose 25 straight of course. frown.gif

It's hard to find a team playing well right now. Didn't think I would say that about the AL Central at any time this year. I see two teams about ready for the playoffs, and they are both from NY.

In any event, this is day 363 of IraqSucksTour05/06. I'm moving West about 7,000 miles in a couple days. Be back to argue with you guys in about a week.

Isn't the Earth only 24,000 miles around? Guess you aren't even halfway around the Globe then?

You will be welcomed home I'm sure.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff
    • TomWehler
      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!
    • seifjr
      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.
    • guideman
      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"
