      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 .

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.

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.

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!
