      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 .

Sit Mauer down?

Recommended Posts

What do you guys think? If Detroit wins tonight (Saturday) and there is no chance for the Twins to win the division on Sunday, should Gardenhire keep Mauer on the bench Sunday? Unless Cano passes him up in tonights Yankee game, I think he should sit Mauer and make Cano earn it. Now on Sunday, the Yankee game starts 1 hour earlier than the Twins so Gardenhire could always play or DH Mauer if he needs another percentage point. They would need a staffer to keep tabs on Cano's at bats results during the game. The NY press will go off like a rocket (Get out the crying towel here) if Mauer sits Sunday and wins the batting title.

I think I would let him sit, let the New York press cry if he wins the batting title on the bench, he has more then enough at bats to support his average. There are several players on the Twins that a day off could prove helpful. Time to start thinking about post season.

Wow Jeter got hot today, 3 for 3 and sits at .345! Just 1 point behind Mauer. Best case scenario now is the weather. Rain forcast for Bronx, NY on Sunday is 100% chance of rain. Lets hope it keeps the bats out of Jeter and Cano's hands. They won't make up the game because it has no bearings on the playoff position for New York. They will give Jeter the MVP award anyhow, because the baseball writers will look at his last three games and compare him to the second comming of Christ.

Can't rest now. Since my post the Tigers have gone out and got themselves another loss. We are back to a one game win or lose the division title. The play of before the play offs!

That's a lot like lookin' for a walk instead of a base hit. Not Mauer's style, nor the Twins. Or the Kitties or Sox, or the hundred loss Royals for that matter.

I agree. The whole scenario changed with the Tigers loss last night. Mauer has to play today and personal awards have to take a back seat. With a chance to win the Division you got to play the "A" team Sunday.

WWTWD. Even Ted William's frozen dome would have said play.

People who take the easy way to anything are cake eaters and should be kicked in the crotch.

      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      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.
