      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 .

Yanks or A's

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what peoples thoughts were on who you would rather see the Twins play in a five game series. I would like to see the Twins win the division but I guess I would rather have them play the Yanks in a five game series rather than a seven game.

A's.

Pretty much only cuz we own the A's.

I'd rather have the A's. Not because I don't want to play the Yankees, but that means we won the AL Central and most likely have dome field advantage throughout.

Doesn't matter. All roads to the World Series go through New York. At some point or another. I'd take the 5 game series vs. the Yankees. Especially with Johan pitching twice.

I'm gonna have to say:

Take down the A's while Det takes NY then put a good, well-deserved beat-down on the Tigs to prove Twins are Numero Uno.

Oosp...is this scenario still possible?

Thats a tough one. If they get the Yanks first, they only have to win 3 games vrs 4 in a 7 game series. If they play the A's, that means they won the division and get at least the first series at home, with the possiblity that they could have both series at home if they have the better record - right now the Yankees have 95 victories and we have 94. And if we play the A's, theres always the possibility that the Tigers could beat the Yanks.

I vote for the A's.

Whats really nice is that no Naional League team is really great this year, if we could just get to the World Series....

A's...Be nice to crush the A's and get some momentum on our side before getting to the ALCS...maybe we'll get lucky and the Kitties will take care of the Yanks...

I would like to see the Twins stomp on the Yanks just to prove to everyone this team is for real. I think we will need to face the Yankees at some point and I would rather do it during a 5 game series when Cytana can pitch 2 of the 5 games.

interesting post from top to bottom. When you look at from the outside-- you figure , not the yanks and the A's. But when it comes right down to it- you have for Yanks pitching- Johnson,Mussina,Wang- and for the A's Zito,Haren,Blanton,Harden Etc. To me that's a push. But when you look at the Yanks lineup 1-7- it nuts. Damon-Jeter-A-rod-Abreu-Giambi/Sheffield-Cano-Posada-Matsui. That's just filthy. Either way-- you likely have to beat the Yanks-, would be nice if we take care of the A's in 4-5 games and then face the Tigers. We need to win out and have Detroit lose 2.- thou this team is possible of anything.

Just bring on the Yanks right away, nothing would be sweeter than knocking off the evil empire in the first round. I just have a gut feeling this is our year against them.

I had the privledge of going to Game 2 of the Yankees/Twins 2004 AL Division Series at Yankee Stadium. For those that remember the game, Torii hit a big solo home-run in the top of the 11th inning to give us the lead. Then Nathan came in for his 3rd consecutive inning of work, got the 1st out on 2 pitches and then proceeded to give up 2 runs, the Twins lost an absolute heart-breaker, and ended up losing the series. It was one of the most exciting games I've every been to. The Yankee Stadium playoff atmosphere is something everyone should experience, simply amazing.

So anyway, I would like nothing more than for the Twins to get a little pay-back for that game. This team is special, I really think we'll do it.

The Yanks are rolling right now, and now Sheffield is back and Matsui, they are tough, I thin if you ask the Twins they'll say bring on the Yanks, but realistically, I would like to play Oakland first and let the Tigers take a crack at 'em first.

Side note, hopefully Silva isn't in the playoff rotation, yikes! Imagine the Yankess teeing off on his fastball?

I know he's had three good outings previous to last night, but after that showing in the 4th inning last night you almost have to go with either Garza or Radke as the #3 starter in the playoffs. Silva needs to return to the pen, both in the playoffs and next year as well.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!

      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am
