      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 .

OK,

You guys asked for it....you got it!

First, let me address my ole buddy Geno, the Cubbie-Loving Machine. From now on, I will refer to Geno as the "cuckoo Cubbie Loving Machine and for this reason. The cuckoo bird is one of the only birds who will take over anyother birds nest rather than build their own.

Geno, you have been in more beds than a $20 hooker. You were in love with the Indians last year and swore they were going to pass the Sox...didn't happen. Now you jump to this year's flavor of the month, the Twinks. I guess if the Sox beatout the Twinks but don't pass the Kitties you will jump into the Kitties bed, huh?

The truth is Geno, a die hard Cubbie fan has not mentioned his team in months. Congrats Geno, your team has worked long and hard this year to achieve their new level of stink. They had to blow many games in the past 18 to lose 16 of them to drop to the WORST TEAM IN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE!

If they work a little harder they can pass the Royals (who only trail them by 4 games) to become the WORST TEAM IN THE MAJORS!

Maybe, just maybe, Geno you should shut your pie-hole for a while or just use the phrase that Cub fans have been using for the past 100 years....WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR! I have never jumped ship and cheered for another team, my first love and only love has always been the White Sox and since I was 10 years old in 1969 my two favorite teams have been and always will be THE WHITE SOX AND WHOEVER IS PLAYING THE CUBS!

Do you like apples, Geno? HOW DO YOU LIKE THOSE APPLES?

As for the rest of you Twinkie-eaters. You are guilty to some extent of the same thing Geno is. You were in love with the Indians last year as your Twinks suffered in futility even though they had the greatest pitcher ever to rub a rosin bag on their team and you will make the same mistake this year. You loved the Injuns, right up until they failed and you could only watch as the Sox ruled the playoffs. Now this year, you get a sniff of the playoffs and you are getting all goosy pimply...well chew on this. Your Twinks barely have a .500 record against teams that are better than .500 at 46-43. If you look at the three division leaders the news gets even better. You have a LOSING record of 12-16 and last time I checked, the best teams are the only ones that make the playoffs. Good luck running your one pitcher against some of the better teams in the playoffs on the off chance you happen to stumble into the playoffs. The only thing you will be assured of (maybe) is not getting swept in any of the series, if the great YO-Han can manage to pitch a decent game. If you happen to make the playoffs against the Yanks or A's you have about a 50/50 chance and if you go up against the Kitties, your record this year is a pitiful 5-10!

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

As for talking about my lack of posting, you should check more carefully. I posted to various threads on Sept 3 and 4th. Sorry, I took the 5th off and played a little Texas Hold Em on the boats. I guess I need to talk about the terrible game the Sox had against the Red Sox, they really got rocked! Vasquez got his clock cleaned and gave up three hits over the complete game he pitched and allowed a run! The nerve, we should trade him, any interest in Twinkie ville, oh wait, your starters are locked in and ready for the playoffs, I forgot. It's Yo-Han, Biff, Boff, Buffy and who is the 5th?

As for your remarks about Dye and Jenks, they were taken out for several games with back and hip injuries so yeah I guess you can say Jenks blew the game. Thome was also injured and never did you hear me complain about injuries. Every team has them and has to play through them.

Good luck in the next three weeks and may the best team win!

Oh yeah, and Geno your contention of trying to get Buzz to drop me as his running mate will not go over. You see, Buzz and I are die hard Republicans who have great conservative values. You have flip-floped more than a wind sock in the last two years, jumping from one bed (Injuns) to the next (Astros) to the next (Twins) This is an obvious trait of a Democrat, much like your last president, The Philanderer in Chief, Mr. Clinton. I don't think you could get on our ticket, wrong color state!

Just remember what Tony Soprano said, "Revenge is a dish best served cold"!

Hugs and Kisses!

Oh, bye the bye, just to be fair. We should also look at the White Sox record against .500 teams or better. It is 42-35 (.545) (the Twinks, if you recall, are 46-43)(.517) and their record against the three division leaders is....DRUM ROLL PLEASE....16-9 (.640) (Twinks are 12-16)(.429)!

I guess if the Sox don't make the playoffs the Twinks only hope is that Congress passes a law that allows the Royals or Devil Rays into the playoffs and make it manditory that the Cubbies are allowed to play in the World Series (this would be the best chance they have of getting into the playoffs), then the Twinks should be all set! Maybe Geno can start drafting that piece of legislature to share with Buzz?

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

Correction Guys,

The Hawk, Ken Harrelson, just brought it to my attention that my math was incorrect when I reported that the Sox were 42-35 against .500 teams. I was wrong, the Sox are 44-33 against .500 teams which is a .571 winning percentage instead of the .545 that was previously reported. Sorry!

You can now return to your game against the lowly Devil Rays, relax, you're doing well! Windy

Hey Guys,

Let me take this time to apologize to all of you. The pressure of this season has gotten to me as I realize that my beloved Pale Hose are not going to make the playoffs this year. I guess it is clear that they have nothing left in the tank. They just got manhandled by the Red Sox the last three games, giving up an outrageous 5 runs in three games and it is also clear that Vasquez and Contreras have nothing left in their tanks. First Vasquez gets rocked for three hits and a run in a complete game and then Contreras showed that he has nothing left to contribute as the Red Sox batted him around for another run and 4 big hits in 8 innings. The Red Sox showed why they are so powerful in dominating the White Sox by scoring a whopping 5 runs to the White Sox measly 10 runs over the three games. Boy do I wish we had your starters or even some of your bull pen. Neshek really looked good tonight against the D-Rays, you should feel confident going into the playoffs with ole Pat! And your starters...fagedaboudit! They are ready to show the world what a dominant starting 5 they are.

So I guess I admit that you guys have built up an insurmountable half game lead over us lowly third place dwellers. We can't even see the Kitties who are a whopping 4.5 games ahead of us while you are nipping on their heels at only 4 games out. So relax, order your playoff tickets and watch as I slither out of the scene with my tail between my legs. YOU WIN! I was wrong, can you ever forgive me???

Windy, I have to say that even though you are cheering for the White Sox, I enjoy your posts. Your biting sarcasm may piss me off at first, but you're informed and speak the truth. Neshek was garbage tonight and that was not the way to get ready for a series against Detroit. I still think the wild card or division will come down to the last series, so all I will say is, may the best team win.

I guess the reason I'm responding again is because in this day and age you actually admitted your a republican. How embarrassing is that. You're jealous of Geno because your team is 3rd in popularity in your city. Your manager is an arrogant pinhead(speak some english.) You have had 1 injury all season, no wonder you don't bring it up. As of now, your club is the biggest dissappointment in baseball. Do you remember that you are world champions? Your club is trailing 2 teams that no one outside of the midwest can name more than 4 players. Your organization has been trying to copy the way the Twinkies play for the last 4 years and your announcers have never been suspended. Put that on your stupid little board!

Windy,

Who cares what record is against what team. I believe all 162 games count in the standings. So if the Twinks blow against the good teams but have the same record as the Sox that must mean your Sox blow against the teams that blow.

You want to rip the Twins pitching staff as a bunch of nobodies but yet those never will be's managed to get our team to leap frog yours while your boys were getting shut down by Julian Tavares and some AAA call up. Our staff is also 11 spots better than yours in the ERA standings.

The only standings that count are the W - L ones and it is going to be an exciting race between some very good teams.

I recommend more ice, more mix and it will all become clear again.

PS. Lay off the bowl of Grumpy O's in the morning. You just aren't quite as lovable when you are all crabby.

Well Windy, you will make a great politician and running mate for Buzz, because you are the master of SPIN!

I can go out and dig up stats to make my team look better too. sdstatekid already gave you some evidence. This is a whole different team from the first two months of the year and if you want to take an objective look at stats and things, take them from June - on.

Also, I will agree, our starters right now are nobodies. Funny thing is, our nobodies are pitching quite a bit better than your all-stars. grin.gif

One more tiny little thing, if you haven't been watching the wire lately, you might have missed that Liriano is on his way back and will get 4 starts in before the playoffs. And just so you know, that will line him up for game one of the 3 gamer with the poopsox at the end of the year. So that gives us not one but 2 of the best pitchers to ever rub a rosin bag. Actually this year they have been the two best pitchers in the AL and it's not even a discussion.

I'd be more embarrased to be a close minded american!! I've always been of the opinion that doing something wrong is better than doing nothing at all. I just couldn't let that comment go without responding... don't get all bent out of shape now... the Dems still have a strong welfare program in place to help those that don't want to help themselves.

Back to baseball, Neshek stinketh and Detroit continues to allow us and Chicago to saty close.

How about that Chisox offense in the first 2 games of the Bosox series, how come you dont comment about that?

I like the comment about the Chisox being the biggest disappointment in baseball. I think it is right on. They are behind 2 teams nobody expected to do anything this year, who have both seen a lot of injuries. Meanwhile, the chisox add Thome and have NO injuries to speak of and are behind them both. Man, talk about a choke job. I think they should be renamed the Chicago Guillen-Choked-On-His-Not-So-White Sox. What a collective bunch of underachievers. A classic, classic example of the sum is less than the parts team. If I were running that team, I would think about adding Daunte Culpepper to provide some awesome stats....but not win games.

To be realistic about it, I dont see how the Twins can win. I sure hope they do, but with the talent they have going (Santana and pray for rain), there is no way they should make the playoffs. The Wild Card is clearly the White Sox's to lose.

You guys are letting Windy rile you up, he does this in fun (you know that by now) and is laughing when he reads the heated comebacks.... lets have fun and be creative with the return shots... I like the comment that the Wild Card is the Sox' to lose, I agree as they are the World Series champs and everybody's pick to go back to the WS (except for the east coast biased fools).

Questions for Windy:

Who's AL MVP?

Who's AL wild card winner and why?

If the Sox miss the playoffs who will you route for?

Do you really care for Harrelson?

You like messing with Twins fans right? smirk.gif

Oh I forgot this post:

Ah Buzz, you are wise beyond your years young grasshopper! It is funny that more people don't figure it out. If you were a walleye you would probably be about 31 inches or bigger and be very old having never bitten that shiny spinner with a juicy crawler following close behind it. As for the rest, they would be about 16 or 17 inchers and would be all nestled next to each other on my stringer!

Because I like you Buzz, I will let you ask me about my business this one time...one time. Pardon my quote from Michael Corleone.

AL MVP - Has to be Jermaine Dye. stats support it and he has the street cred from last years Series MVP to boot.

AL Wild Card - Sox. Yes, I am admitting now that they may not have enough games left to catch the Kitties, though I think the Kitties will be running on fumes come October and could be easy fodder come playoff time.

Who will I cheer for if the Sox don't get to the dance. Probably the Kitties, Maggs deserves a chance to dance and they would be the Central champs so I got to stick close to home.

Do I like The Hawk. Yes I do, but then again, I like to watch The Jerry Springer show too!

And the answer to your last question...YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES!

We may be separated by about 350 miles Buzz but somehow I think you may be the younger brother that I never had or the college room mate that I wished I had.

Old Chinese proverb says...May you live in interesting times. Should be some interesting times in the next three weeks here in the heartland of the good ole US of A.

Hugs and Kisses (see, I can be a kinder and gentler person)

YES! But don't put me in a box about the war, I was speaking in general terms. My point is that the Dems are set up to help the needy and the republicans are more about building business' and taking care of yourself... some people don't or won't try to get ahead or take a chance and in my opinion it's the typical Democrat (stereotyping)... I'm a go getter and have worked hard to get where I'm at in life... I see others who milk the system and frankly it irks me. Too many people with their hands out and thinking that somebody owes them something... we all get what we work for.... nothing ventured, nothing gained. You pickin' up what I'm putting down Sled?

PHEW!!!!!!! Where to begin....lessseee,

1. Windy fails to mention he made no posts from 8/26 - 9/3, a period which I would not doubt was when the Twins passed the WSox, but don't quote me on that---'lil help from anyone?

2. He was probably gambling for that whole week.

Bookie: "Who''s your favorite baseball team?"

Windy: "Wsox"

Bookie: "Place your bet"

Windy: "against the Cubs"

Bookie: "You are only allowed to bet on your favorite team"

Windy: "No thanks"

I hereby allow Windy to root for whoever is playing the Cubs while he does not allow me to root for whoever is playing the WSox - that's fair, isn't it? NOT! Like a true politician - "what's good for me isn't good for you"

3. I believe Windy may have missed my post about "never letting them see you sweat" so here is my reminder to him: it don't work with us.

We all know how he plays: if you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, then baffle 'em with bullsh**. I mean, he is so full of it sometimes that his eyes are brown.

Only 3 hits blah blah blah, only 1 run blah blah blah, but nowhere did he mention the losing team, the WSox, which is all that matters.

4. MJGROSE - I, for one, apologize for making you think you are anywhere near the quality of our good WSox fan/buddy.

5. Windy does deserve to be commended for sticking with the ship as it sinks, just too bad he doesn't allow me to have the same rights with my Cubbies who, in case you all missed it, also won yesterday and, for one day anyway, are out of last place.

5. Let's add it to the list of what you just don't discuss in public: politics, religion, and baseball.

PS Buzz, you'll never get elected in MN with that running mate, sarcasm or not.

PPS And speaking of "mates", how 'bout a moment of silence, or in Windy's case a week of silence, for the dear departed CrocHunter. I just hate when bad things happen to good people but I know deep down it is part of some master plan.

      Anglers and others interested in Department of Natural Resources strategies for managing Grand Marias area lakes and streams are invited to review and comment on management plans scheduled for review this fall. This annual process includes several waters located within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Comments on lakes within the BWCAW will be accepted until Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW, will extend through Feb. 15. A management plan identifies specific management activities planned for a lake or stream over the next five to 20 years, including any proposed stocking or special regulations. “Management plans are our best single sources of information on past, present and desired future conditions in our lakes and streams,” said Steve Persons, Grand Marais area fisheries supervisor. “Comments and suggestions from those most interested in these waters are crucial when it comes to making plans and determining management success. For anglers this is the best opportunity to influence how these lakes and streams are managed.” In the Grand Marais area, plans for the following lakes and streams will reviewed this winter. Lake plans under review: The status and preservation of native lake trout populations will be the primary concern in plans being revised for Blue Snow and Gabimichigami Lakes. Both are located inside the BWCAW. Stream trout stocking and management strategies will be reviewed in Thompson, Thrush, Turnip, Olson, Kraut, Little Portage, Olga, Mavis (BWCAW), Missing Link (BWCAW), Meditation (BWCAW), Talus, Trout, Pine (near Two Island Lake), Unnamed (near Tom Lake), Chester, Extortion, and North Shady Lakes. Options to consider include changes in species, reductions in stocking frequency, and changes in the number or size of fish stocked. In Mine, Peanut, Weasel (Sled), Tomato, Trip, and Rog (BWCAW) Lakes, fisheries managers are considering eliminating trout stocking, due to the high cost of stocking remote lakes by air, poor survival of stocked fish, or use that appears to have been too low to justify the cost of continued stocking.  Angler feedback on fisheries in these lakes is critically needed for these important decisions. Plans for Devilfish, Gust, Hand, and Tom Lakes will be reviewed with attention to the status and needs of walleye fisheries in those lakes. Moore Lake will be reviewed to determine whether it offers any potential for panfish management. Plans for several lightly-used BWCAW lakes in the area, including Caribou (by Clearwater), Clove, Kiskadinna, Long, Mora, Morgan, Skipper, and Tepee Lakes will be reviewed. Those plans will be revised primarily to incorporate any new survey data that may have been obtained, and to establish survey schedules for the next few years. Streams plans under review: Plans for Beaverdam Creek and the Swamp River will be reviewed.  Both are marginal trout streams, and may be considered for removal from the State’s list of designated trout streams. Plans for the Cascade River, Elbow Creek, and the Onion River will also be reviewed. All three support thriving brook trout populations, with the Cascade and Onion Rivers also supporting steelhead and salmon in their lower reaches. Plans will focus on habitat and water quality, hydrology and watershed issues. The DNR is considering removing the portion of Elbow Creek above Elbow Lake from the State’s list of designated trout streams, since no trout have been found in that part of the stream in recent surveys. Current plans for lakes and streams in the area as well as recent fish population assessment information are available for review at the DNR’s Grand Marais area fisheries office, at 1356 E. Highway 61, Grand Marais, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information, call or email Steve Persons at 218-387-6022 or steve.persons@state.mn.us. Public comments on management of BWCAW waters are due by Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW will extend through Feb. 15. Comments, suggestions and other feedback on the management of these, and all other streams and lakes in the area are welcomed at any time and will be considered when those plans are next due for review. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the city of Willow River will host a public open house on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 to discuss options for the Willow River dam which was severely damaged during a July 2016 rain storm. The open house will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Willow River School located at 8142 Pine Street, Willow River, Minn. Participants can visit displays during the first hour of the open house to learn more about three options currently being considered.  At 7:30 p.m. DNR staff will make a presentation about the features, benefits and cost of each option and answer questions about next steps. The meeting purpose is to receive public input about the options and to answer questions about the state’s process. The dam was built in 1940 as a cooperative venture between the Works Progress Administration and the then Department of Conservation. Heavy rains from a July 2016 thunderstorm overwhelmed the capacity of the dam and caused a significant breach of the north embankment. Options include replacement of the dam to meet current safety standards, removal of the dam, or restoration of the river channel with a series of rock weirs, or rock rapids, to retain water levels but to allow passage of small craft as well as the movement of fish. “We have a rare opportunity to reimagine how this stretch of river might function and look like in the future,” said project manager Jason Boyle. “We look forward to hearing from area residents and moving the project forward.” Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
