      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 .

When I see him warming up in the pen in a close game, I want to throw stuff at the TV. The other night with the bases loaded was the very last straw. Then tonite!

Thoughts?

Sled, I think it's a case with Gardy about protecting the rookies. I will agree, with all the guy's in the pen, Crain makes my hair on the neck stand up. By the way, where's Baker been? couple of opportunities to pitch in blowouts lately.

Tonight I think was a good guess by the kid at the plate. Was not too bad a pitch, yeah, it was down broadway, but low. He just went down and got it. He at least came out and had a 1-2-3 eighth... Still has pretty decent numbers. He stunk early, like most of the staff did. Huge win tonight-apparently no let-down after the bad 'Cisco news. Only 1 game behind the Kitties!

totally agree--- HUGE WIN for the Twins!!! instead of being 2 games behind the kitty cats and 1 ahead of the Sox, it's a full game ahead for both. Huge momentum booster after (or was it) such bad news. I think the TWins make the playoffs regardless of Radke. If he can pitch in playoffs,, watch out, they may surprise the baseball nation and likely have much of the nation behind them. I think Santanna will lose a game thou in his last few starts, just hope it's not agst the White sox!!!!! He's still a 20 game winner with a under 3 ERA and over 250 strikeouts. Put that on the board.

I felt the same way at the start of the season, but lately, Crain has been lights out other than last night.

We will need him down the stretch. These young arms will not consistently get us into the 7th inning, so we are gonna need Jesse big time. I actually think he has found his stroke. Last night was a slip up, but after that first batter, he was unhittable.

You can't expect these guys to give never give up a run. It wasn't even that bad of a pitch. The guy went down and got it. Crain has been very consistant over the last couple of years with the exception of early this year.

He has been real good for sure.

One lucky swing and people start getting on him. It was a decent pitch the batter just did a real good job getting wood on it. Remember that these pitchers are throwing to batters that are paid big dollars to hit the ball. You can't go all year without giving up a homer now and again to quality hitters, it happens. Baseball has alot of luck involved.

The other 4 batters he faced he was dominating, it really was just one pretty good pitch and one really good swing.

We still won the game.

How about Boof, another 6 inning 1 run outing. I'll take that everyday of the week. He really figured something out while back in the minors. I am happy for him.

The Boof, The Boof, The Boof is on FIRE!!!

Rick Anderson said on KFAN that the first pitch was suppose to be a changeup and that the signs got screwd up and fast ball was thrown.

Yeah I suppose he should, I mean after all he could have turned the most incredible double play of the year as he was about to get taken out at second! Thats crazy talk, I'd say it was a team loss... how many guys did they leave on base all night long? I believe it was eleven.

the guy was 10 feet from first when the throw went skipping by morneau. Maybe Bartlett will hit 3 homers today and we'll forget all about it. Atleast the sox and garland lost, YAY! Rain stopped, time to go hunting!

Something is wrong with this guy. I just get bad bad feelings.

I guess he has a torn right labrum & rotator cuff. No wonder he hasn't been right all season. Sounds like he has been pitching with it for awhile.

I have a feel that you dont really care for Crain.

Im sures hes a great guy, but he's really hurt the team. Especially since Gardy and Ryan like to give everyone 10 chances before they make a move.

      same here for the panfish...find the weed line and slow troll or cast, fall, slow retrieve.

      I'm 68, retired, moved back to MN 2004 from SDAK. This year I tried to learn to fish MN  again after leaving MN fishing back in 1968. Been fishing in my backyard on the Ottertail river...waters are fast and there are rocks/weeds.  Tried buzzbaits(just a bit) frogs..anything topwater, simulated and live night crawlers.  Get a bite now and then...smallmouth bass. A friend suggested I buy a boat, try some other parts of the Ottertail river and Minnesota lakes/rivers in general. Fishing boats are now $50k plus or minus and I can't figure out if the fishing is any better in MN with a boat than my backyard. Part of my issue is that I experienced hunting and fishing in SD from 1969 - 2004...when I lived there...that's my point of comparison.

      I am in the middle of a rebuild as well.  The carpet needed to be replaced, and the best way to do that was to remove things, which turned out to have some rotting boards, which led to more removal and this is how it currently looks:   Most of the wood in my boat merely need a new coat of paint.  However, you can see the framing in the bottom picture are all rotted.  I have actually been thinking of replacing it with some 2x2 cedar.  Hoping that will be better at avoiding rot.  I also need to replace the deck above that frame, it had gotten a little soft and I am going to lay a new piece of treated plywood on top.  Probably the best for replacement would be marine grade plywood, but it is expensive and not convenient for picking up over the weekend.  Of course, I have never done this before so I am not speaking from experience.

      I'll still be available on this board for information. I'll be spending most of my time chasing Smallmouth and Muskies, but I do fish for Walleyes once and a while.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man".

      The line feeding the charger should be fused, but typically the charger connects to a line that is fused already in the boat wiring.   The output of the charger is protected internally to the charger.   And I have never seen a policy or company refuse to pay just because it was your fault.  They pay for fires from pans left on stoves, for space heaters with 16ga extension cords run under the rug, etc.   I think all this "insurance won't pay" is just a myth.     In the case of the charger outputs to the batteries, not sure where the fuses would be located.. At the battery?  Not sure what the fuse would be protecting.  I guess it depends on where the charger is located and where the batteries are.

      Hi, from the Northwest Angle! Water temps are staying consistently in the low 70’s.

      Stateside, walleye fishing has been good from Lunatic to Garden Islands. The edges of islands and reefs in 22-29’ will provide walleye, perch and occasional large pike. Most productive methods have been minnows on gold spinners and deep diving crank baits in UV tiger, clown and blue/chrome.

      Canadian walleyes can be had jigging minnows with gold, pink, and chartreuse on edges of reefs.  Monkey Rocks is holding many schools of fish currently, as well as, reefs south of Deepwater Bay. Bottom bouncing outside these reefs will produce fish as well. Muskie fishing has slowed a little, however nice fish in upper 40’s can be caught in “windows” of time, usually coinciding with Majors and Minors.

      We hope to see you for some fantastic fall fishing & hunting!

      Tx all.  Been trying topwater frog lures.  Been getting some action but water is too rapid to have much luck.
    • Jennifer Dewitt
      Lets see you will need- 
      a) license and lion permit/tag 
      b)guide 
      c) dogs with tracking collars 
      d) horses 
      e) some sort of thing that goes "BOOM" 
      and a ton of forethought for asking such a dumb question

      8/21/17     Got out on Mille Lacs on Saturday morning. Started out on rocks in 10-12 feet of water, then as the sum came up and the wind layed down moved to gravel in 28-30 feet and then the deep transition from a rock/gravel reef to the soft lake bottom in 32 feet of water. Caught smallies and walleyes on the rocks, and walleyes on the gravel and the deep transition line. Power bobbing with leeches about one foot above bottom on the rocks and two to four feet above bottom in the deeper spots. The five smallies went from 16 to 18.5 inches, and the walleyes went from 16 to 25.5 inches. They weren't jumping in the boat--we had to try different spots, move around slowly on spots with the MinnKota, and then anchor when we did catch or see fish on the Humminbird. Had to work for them, but wound up averaging three fish per hour with the faster action early and then slowing when the sun got high and the wind layed down--typical August fishing. Eyes and smallies are fat and look healthy--both fought very actively. Surface water temp. started at 68.7 degrees at sunrise and was to 72.4 when we headed in. Still a little cooler than average, but that is how this summer has been. Might be my last time on Mille Lacs--busy with football now and waterfowl hunting starts in a month. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      these should be available at Circuit City, BestBuy, or pretty much any other electronics store. Go check them out, a play around with them, just to see which one you find easier to use.
