      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 .

If not tonight..Never

Still only the bottom of the 3rd, so I may be speaking to soon, but the Jays are up 3-0 on the Tigers. Yet another chance maybe to tie things up. Our opportunities are passing us by, as we still need to win out.

Last I saw, the Tigers were losing yesterday. Did they lose? If so, what a lost opportunity that was.

I agree though, whatever opportunities the Twins now have they MUST take advantage of if they are going to win the Central.

DTE,

Not that I'm going out on a limb here, but you are correct. If the Twins don't tie tonight, chances are very slim that they'll clinch the central. The door was open wide last night and couldn't capitalize.

But then again, this is major league baseball and weird things happen...

Does anyone care to guess on how Radke will do tonight? My guess is he will give up a couple runs early, then settle down...

Yeah, I saw most of the game. They really missed out on one last night. Nearly came back, but the bats spent too much time on their shoulders in that last inning except for Cuddy.

It's easy to put my finger on that one game and say "what if", but there are many other games throughout the season that I could say "what if" to also. Just hope the Twins are sitting atop the Central when the regular season ends.

Your right there have been many other games, but the easy part about last nights is Silva went back to the Silva before his 3 previous starts and giving up many runs early. Must be something about Redman facing the Twins. Didn't he win 1-0 not too long ago? Not many hits in that game if I'm not mistaken.

Yes, that game was only a couple of weeks ago. I think we had something like 3-5 hits the entire game and Redman pitched a complete game shutout. I remember being very disgusted after that game. That is a game that sticks out in my mind as a missed opportunity this season.

Yep, I believe it was 5 hits that game. I remember that I was a little fumigated with a post about that game because he was pitching so dang slow (like batting practice) and the Twins couldn't hit the ball! smirk.gif

Not to harp on Silva, well ok I am. But how about the game which Buerhle gave the Twins 7 runs in the first for a 7-3 lead after 1 inning. Silva on the mound that night and they lost 9-7. I believe he gave up 6 earned runs in less than 3 innings of work.

Bottom line, we need to win out. I thought I read that Silva may be pitching on Sunday. I hope the divison title doesn't come down to that.

If Silva is pitching on Sunday and there's half a chance for the title, he'd better have a rope around his waist so that Gardy can yank him out faster.

If he's going to choke, let's put the rope where it belongs...around his neck! smirk.gif (just kidding)

if you wanna pick 1 game ,go ahead.. but why not pick the 1st 2 months of the season?? if they played .500 ball then we would be up by 6 games or so... the bad start didnt help a BIT

Don't crown the Yankees yet. Yankees are losing by several. Yankees play Toronto for three, starting Friday. Toronto's a good club. They can win. Yankees, like the Twins and Tigers, are concerned with getting ready for the playoffs as much as they are winning, from what I see.

Other side of the coin - I'd really rather play the Yankees in a five gamer than a seven. Especially if I had Santana going two of the five. Yankees could destroy a pitching staff in seven games.

play the yanks in 5 games or 7??? HEck-- Why play the Yanks if you don't have too?? I'd much rather play DET or OAK, and your nuts if you think otherwise.

1.. we cant play the tigers in the 1st round... 2.. i also would rather play the yankers in a 5 game series as opposed to a 7 game series... the only way i wouldnt mind a 7 game series is if we had home field thruought the playoffs..oakland dont scare me at all and tigers are slumping but yanks are prety hot now

      Thanks to all those who came out yesterday and it was great to see you all. I had fun catching fish and chatting. I will put another one together later in the year.

      Had another good weekend of fishing.  Fished Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon and found consistent action all hours of the day.  Caught 5 slotters 22-25", and was able to be picky on eaters, only keeping 15-17" walleyes.  Plenty of small eyes also, plus I caught 4 eelpout. I did learn a lesson on how to take eelpout off of the hook.  I tried to lift a 20" pout out of the hole by line and the hook pulled out and embedded the bobber in my styrofoam ceiling.  The next time I used the fish pliers to lift the slimy fish out. Had 10" of ice where I was, and a lot of large wheelhouses were being pulled out there.  Yesterday someone drove a Jeep out to a wheelhouse close by.  I think we will see a lot more vehicles driving out in the next week.  Fortunately the added weight hasn't pushed much water on top of the ice.

      Thanks for the info guys.

      I think the fourm would still be pretty strong....however when they split the fourm sites up & stuff and changed some things a few years ago it pretty much killed this site. Traffic is a crawl.....they blame it on new media like Facebook and other stuff......which is an excuse.....poor one at that.......the other ice fishing website I go to is stronger then ever.......This use to be my favorite site, today it's in sad shape & I only come because I remember what it once was hoping that it gets back to it someday.

      Big Marine had 8" at the north access out to the weeds before the main lake.  Lots of walkers, a number of wheelers.  5 inches past the weeds above the ice before the island.   Access was crazy...very inconsiderate people tripple parking, a guy I was with got parked in, trucks behind and in front of him.  Luckily I was parked beside him and was able to move enough that he could get his truck out.   Fishing was very slow.  Couple panfish, a bass and snake northern.

      I'm definitely itching to get on the river.

      I was out on Hiniker Pond last night. Had no luck with fish but I was after dark. Straight out from the pier about 30 yards you got a solid 3.75 to 4 inches. Duck lake has about 5 inches. Henry had 4 inches last week. Not sure about this week.

        Doc was up there with a couple of his boys on Thursday fishing out of portables.  He gave me a call when he was on the ice.  I said, “. Let me guess what you got on”.  Red stripe Demon with a female fat head hooked through the pooper hole on the dead stick and a purple smelt rattling flyer with a minnow head on the other pole.  I nailed it.  He still uses a jiggle stick for his dead stick.  He had to sign off as a fish came in on the Vex.  Put it in the bucket Shaky.
