      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 .

Even though the Twins lost what an entertaining game.. Don't ever count the Twins out they own the last 3 innings of a ball game and can make a comeback. I think these last few games are just setting us up for the playoffs, This should be a fun time for any baseball fan even Windy should enjoy the ride.. Go Twins grin.gif

Bobby Bass,

I'm lovin the preview so far. You will have to see some of my posts to other threads in here. What are your fans thinking? The colons are really kinking up there in Twinkie ville. Some of the guys are saying the Twinks should sit Mauer so he can BACK INTO THE TITLE!!! What a bunch of weenies. Take it the way you have been taking it all year, or at least after you started 12 games under! They look like a team that has forgotten how to play the game. Let Mauer take his 4 or 5 AB's tomorrow and EARN the title. As far as letting guys rest...Hey, my beloved Pale Hose will get plenty of rest after tomorrow and if the Twinks don't turn this around they will be joining my boys in about a week after that!!! Just my .02 Windy

Bobby,

You see what I mean, a little testastarone goes along way. Good things happen when you go for it! Mauer played, didn't sit it out the way some posters on here wanted him to and look what happened. Twinks win, Kitties lose in extra so Mauer goes 2-4 and wins the title while the Twinks win the division. Has to be one of the biggest crashes in history. Mood is probably as low in Motown as it is high in Twinkie-ville. Pretty calm here in the Windy. We are observers this year instead of participants though it is about 45 minutes from kick off for my beloved Bears....DA BEARS! Windy

biggest crashes in history??? You bet!! And the Twins went past not one, but two teams with a big crash!! Both the White Sox and Tigers owned a +10 game lead on the Twins in late AUG. That spells double crash, and the biggest modern day baseball comeback in history, becasue the Twins passed two GREAT teams, not just one. You would think that with 2 teams in front of the Twins and each playing each other about 30 times, (Tigers/ Sox. Tigers/Twins. Sox/Twins) being 10 out it would be nearly impossible with teams beating each other up,, but the Twins proved otherwise and this should go down in MLB history as not only one of the biggest chokes ever, but likely two, casue without the WC, the Tigers would replace the 69' Cubs and 64' Phils as the master choke artist. MY GOODNESS, think about that for a sec!!! and than fact that Detriot lost it's last FIVE games of the year and last 3 agst the supposed worst team in baseball!!!!,,, and the Tigers led KC 5-0 on FRI and 6-0 on SUN,,, only to lose both games plus the Sat game. WAY TO GO KC!!!!!

PLAYOFFS!!! Again? ho-hum this is getting tiresome-- division champs 4 out of 5 years ho-hum.... grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif The GM and manager and staff deserve a lot of credit fot consistent winning like that. They just seem to know talent and how to develop it in the minors. GOOD JOB!!!!

NOW... if Silva can pitch in the playoffs like his last one, and Radke can keep his arm on a couple more weeks, and Santana can avoid a long ball, and Bonzer can keep em in the ballpark..... should be FUN!!! wink.gif

You have a lot of "ifs" in that last post. Here's another "if"....

If my grandma had a "johnson" she would be my grandpa!

Have to edit this post alittle:

In re: to Ring/Zing:

Ol' Windmaster, as a DJ, you know what I gotta add-

"But that was yesterday, and yesterday's gone!"

In re: to "johnson":

Windy, you are using that out of context on Soldon. Your "joke" is usable for past events and "if only...." like when you think "if only the WSox had not given up 2 weeks ago", but Soldon is wishing on future playoff events so we will see who has the "johnson" - your grandma or his.

NOW onto some serious baseball while I erase the collapse in '69 being the worst ever in my memory banks --- THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU K.C. (and Tigers too)!

Buzzy - I am trying bud, but backing into the post season and losing what 9 of your last 11 games is tough to get amped up for. Our bullpen is in shambles.. Everyone I know is picking San Diego and rightly so they have good starting pitching and the 3rd rated bullpen in the major leagues. Will see what happens this afternoon.

Keep living in the past. Other than last year your team has been dominated by the Twins. Beeooootch would be a good word to describe them. Another one would be chokers!

You don't get a trophy, a ring, the "World Champions" label and a 2 million person ticker tape parade for winning the division.

Commanche,

Maybe they do get a ticket tape parade in Twinkie Town for just winning the division. Not much else going on there. Certainly nothing to speak of from the Queens! High five me on DA BEARS! Windy

I don't know if Twinkieville or anyone can ever match the ticker tape the Sox had last year. I just don't know if anyone will ever have the opportunity to save up 100 years of confetti again.

CNY,

If you can't hit a good man when he's down, when can you. Besides, Geno is probably bubbling over with new found confidence now that his beloved Cubbies are on a new course to victory. Dump McPhail, Dump Dusty, Dump Dump Dump and WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR. GO GO GO Joe, Girardi He's our man if he can't do it....WAIT TILL THE NEXT YEAR!

Congrats on dumping the Pads. Nice! Good luck, wouldn't mind seeing the Red Birds take the whole enchilada. I was always a huge Tony The Tiger fan, Windy

Yes Tim, Windy is a master at deflection.

Don't think I didn't notice what you did Windy. Rather than respond directly about the WSox drought, you chose to move the discussion off your team and towards mine - smooth!

Ta da dump, ta da dump, ta da dump, dump, dump!

      Applications due by Saturday, Dec. 16  The Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission are seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee.  “The Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee plays a critical role in helping us achieve the vision Minnesotans have for use of the Parks and Trails Legacy Funds and creates an accessible and equitable, integrated system of state and regional parks and trails in Minnesota,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters. The committee is planning a series of regional events during the year to celebrate Legacy accomplishments and engage Minnesotans on the question, “Why Parks and Trails Legacy Matters.”  Information about the events will be available in January on Facebook (/PTLegacyMN) and on the committee website (www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac). The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents. Committee members should have expertise in two or more of the four strategic pillars of the plan: Connect people and the outdoors. Acquire land and create opportunities. Take care of what we have. Coordinate among partners. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. Meetings are scheduled every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Interested individuals may complete the application form online at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/member-application or print it out and return it to Paul Purman, Department of Natural Resources, Box 39, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155. Anyone with questions can contact Paul via phone at 651-259-5643 or email at paul.purman@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Anglers and others interested in Department of Natural Resources strategies for managing Grand Marias area lakes and streams are invited to review and comment on management plans scheduled for review this fall. This annual process includes several waters located within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Comments on lakes within the BWCAW will be accepted until Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW, will extend through Feb. 15. A management plan identifies specific management activities planned for a lake or stream over the next five to 20 years, including any proposed stocking or special regulations. “Management plans are our best single sources of information on past, present and desired future conditions in our lakes and streams,” said Steve Persons, Grand Marais area fisheries supervisor. “Comments and suggestions from those most interested in these waters are crucial when it comes to making plans and determining management success. For anglers this is the best opportunity to influence how these lakes and streams are managed.” In the Grand Marais area, plans for the following lakes and streams will reviewed this winter. Lake plans under review: The status and preservation of native lake trout populations will be the primary concern in plans being revised for Blue Snow and Gabimichigami Lakes. Both are located inside the BWCAW. Stream trout stocking and management strategies will be reviewed in Thompson, Thrush, Turnip, Olson, Kraut, Little Portage, Olga, Mavis (BWCAW), Missing Link (BWCAW), Meditation (BWCAW), Talus, Trout, Pine (near Two Island Lake), Unnamed (near Tom Lake), Chester, Extortion, and North Shady Lakes. Options to consider include changes in species, reductions in stocking frequency, and changes in the number or size of fish stocked. In Mine, Peanut, Weasel (Sled), Tomato, Trip, and Rog (BWCAW) Lakes, fisheries managers are considering eliminating trout stocking, due to the high cost of stocking remote lakes by air, poor survival of stocked fish, or use that appears to have been too low to justify the cost of continued stocking.  Angler feedback on fisheries in these lakes is critically needed for these important decisions. Plans for Devilfish, Gust, Hand, and Tom Lakes will be reviewed with attention to the status and needs of walleye fisheries in those lakes. Moore Lake will be reviewed to determine whether it offers any potential for panfish management. Plans for several lightly-used BWCAW lakes in the area, including Caribou (by Clearwater), Clove, Kiskadinna, Long, Mora, Morgan, Skipper, and Tepee Lakes will be reviewed. Those plans will be revised primarily to incorporate any new survey data that may have been obtained, and to establish survey schedules for the next few years. Streams plans under review: Plans for Beaverdam Creek and the Swamp River will be reviewed.  Both are marginal trout streams, and may be considered for removal from the State’s list of designated trout streams. Plans for the Cascade River, Elbow Creek, and the Onion River will also be reviewed. All three support thriving brook trout populations, with the Cascade and Onion Rivers also supporting steelhead and salmon in their lower reaches. Plans will focus on habitat and water quality, hydrology and watershed issues. The DNR is considering removing the portion of Elbow Creek above Elbow Lake from the State’s list of designated trout streams, since no trout have been found in that part of the stream in recent surveys. Current plans for lakes and streams in the area as well as recent fish population assessment information are available for review at the DNR’s Grand Marais area fisheries office, at 1356 E. Highway 61, Grand Marais, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information, call or email Steve Persons at 218-387-6022 or steve.persons@state.mn.us. Public comments on management of BWCAW waters are due by Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW will extend through Feb. 15. Comments, suggestions and other feedback on the management of these, and all other streams and lakes in the area are welcomed at any time and will be considered when those plans are next due for review. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the city of Willow River will host a public open house on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 to discuss options for the Willow River dam which was severely damaged during a July 2016 rain storm. The open house will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Willow River School located at 8142 Pine Street, Willow River, Minn. Participants can visit displays during the first hour of the open house to learn more about three options currently being considered.  At 7:30 p.m. DNR staff will make a presentation about the features, benefits and cost of each option and answer questions about next steps. The meeting purpose is to receive public input about the options and to answer questions about the state’s process. The dam was built in 1940 as a cooperative venture between the Works Progress Administration and the then Department of Conservation. Heavy rains from a July 2016 thunderstorm overwhelmed the capacity of the dam and caused a significant breach of the north embankment. Options include replacement of the dam to meet current safety standards, removal of the dam, or restoration of the river channel with a series of rock weirs, or rock rapids, to retain water levels but to allow passage of small craft as well as the movement of fish. “We have a rare opportunity to reimagine how this stretch of river might function and look like in the future,” said project manager Jason Boyle. “We look forward to hearing from area residents and moving the project forward.” Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
