      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 .

Goooosssshhh darnit!!!! Here I am checking out posts and stuff, all the while the Twins make a comeback and win! Here it is, end of the 8th, Twins down 1-0 and I leave to check out the forums. And what's worse....my wife doesn't even tell me of the comeback! GRRRRRR!

Oh well, at least they won. Plus, they'll replay it tomorrow so I can set the VCR and record it.

Just a testament to the makeup of this team. The fact that Radke even makes it out there to pitch seems to me beyond the realm of possibility; better yet Radke has a strong outing. I don't even want to hear anybody try to minimize his effort because we are playing the Royals. You know Radke would have pitched left-handed if that's what it would have come to.

DOwn here in IOwa-- the games don't come in so well, especially late in the year with the loss of daylight, but tonight was a treat laying on the couch listning to CCO' and Gordo. Even after Hudson pitched lights out for 7 innings,(don't let anybody tell you the Royals are a bad team, they have a better record since the ALL Star break then the freakin CARDS)) you had a idea the TWins would still win. Even more so when Rincon got out of bases loaded, NO OUTs , jam in the top of the 9th.

I have heard GORDO call many big wins for the TWINS... --- PIERsynski's insurance shot agst the A's in 02',, Guzman's BUNT HR IN 2003, but last night's call with that high pitched voice going totally nuts with Mauers' HR, was the best so far. Hopefully he's got a few more in the postseason--- Here's a DRIVE,,, LEFT FIELD,, IT's GOT CHANCE---- (Gladden in the background going,, "GET UP- GET UP!!!)) GONE.... HR JOE MAUER!!!!! OHHH MYY!!! TOUCH' EM ALL!!!!! JOE MAUER!!!

One of most spectacular comebacks in sports history--- even if the Twins do nothing in the playoffs. They have passed the World Champs who they trailed by 10 games in June and tied the run-away train who some people thought would win close to 110 games. All this with one stud Starting pitcher and a makeshift rotation that includes guys that started the season in A ball or AA. AWESOME!!!!

I was crying "FOUL" last night. Twins get two on and KC walks the next guy to load 'em up for the number nine hitter. Looking decent. I go to the stats and the guy has a .313 average!!! That's not fair. My tigers don't have a .313 anywhere in the order and you guys got one batting ninth.

Nice win. Will Chicago play tough or roll over? Can the tigers go the season with only one loss to KC?

Good luck.

I think the Sox will play tough. They aren't going to lie down for the hated Twins.. Same with KC against Detroit. Play the spoiler role.

That was one of the best games I have ever watched, just as I was bichin about how the Twins have no killer instinct when the door was left open two consecutive nights and how it seems they are going to settle for the wild card...bam! Mauer baby. And how about Bartlett? That was pressure there, and he tagged the ball! There are at least 3 ways to make an out in that situation without scoring a run.

I agree with Stratos. Sox and Royals have had horribly disappointing seasons. If I was a Sox or Royals pitcher I think I just might be looking to end my season with about a dozen a strikeout performance. And maybe an 0-fer night for the batting Prince. smirk.gif

That was an exciting game last night. I'm down in Iowa too. Sweetie took the XM receiver out of her car and left it for me last night so I could hear the Twins. She's a good girl.

I only got a chance to watch a bit here and there last night, and got frustrated at how the Twins batters made the KC pitchers look like Cy Young. Got to watch the bottom of the 9th though. Mauer was just clutch. Still need to win out to have a chance. Hope it keeps going tonight.

I take it then you plan to win the weekly bet this week? Personally, I like your chances on this week Buzzsaw, but for the sake of the avatar I'll say "Go Bills".

Awesome...simply awesome. It was just the momentum they needed to carry them into the final series with the Sux.

I was also at the game last night. Brad pitched great. Actually looked pretty tough out there.

After Mauer hit that homerun, you knew the Twins were gonna win the game. You could literally feel it swing the Twins way.

This has been a special season and one that fans should not take for granted.

Best thing - These guys are all relative newbies to the MLB. We will be tough for years.

      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. 
    • Jennifer Dewitt
      Best is the one that's suited to the purpose used for. 
      My usual preference is a middleweight Standard because it's versatile and can serve many purposes with only quickly made alterations - add saddlebags, rack etc. 
      No need for more than two cylinders. 

      My view of what's best? 
      2 wheels, a frame and a 2 cylinder 4 stroke motor.

      Are you out to add color or protect the wood or both? A natural oil sealer is something to consider -- it lets the beauty of the natural cedar show though and still protects the wood. You can also get the same type of "penetrating oil sealer" in colors. Hard finishes (varnish) may look tacky and will require re-sanding and finishing over time --while the oil sealers can be touched up annually with a new light coat without sanding -- a much more natural look. Go to a "real" paint store and talk to them about your project -- skip the Home Depots and Lowe's "advice"
    • Jennifer Dewitt
      you want a hard, fine-grained wood for carving lures. high quality wood so your hardware won't split the wood or so it won't soak up a lot of water then split. water WILL gain access to the wood no matter how good the paint. 
      and the acrylic is fine.

      I know this: you need to be on the water around 4:00am and the window of opportunity is small. When 6:00am rolls around, you should be done fishing for sturgeon.

      Is the canadian seal hunt still going on? if it is still on, does anyone know when it is supposed to commence this year? If any one have good idea please reply me with a quality comments.

      Was up this last weekend got out Saturday morning and Sunday morning.  The fish were biting very aggressively which made for a good time.  All fish from 14"-19".  No slot fish which was a surprise.  On a side note...  I've never had too much trouble with people honing in on where I am fishing.  But Sunday morning I started fishing this spot around 8am (which is late for me).  Nobody was around me and within an hour there had to of been six new boats around me.   I don't mind too much if your fishing an area by me but when you start trolling and drifting my same exact line I am???  Like do you want to hop in my boat and fish with me too?  Some people I tell ya..  Anyways get out there, the fish are biting.   Just remember there is 40,000 acres of water to fish out there.

      Ace, I've (along with countless others) have so appreciated your advice on this forum- your knowledge is invaluable. Can't thank you enough for being willing to share- that can be a rare thing these days!  I hope the retirement from guiding isn't also a retirement from posting  Take care and enjoy!
