      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 .

Detroit and Chicago have to be as low as the Twins are high.

Silva did his job today.

Harvey,

I can see the Detroit part of your post but why the Chicago. Our ship sailed two weeks ago. Most of the team had cashed it in ten games ago. Why would you think we are low now. We got ours last year, good luck getting your this year. Windy

We got ours last year. We got ours last year. We got ours last year. We got ours last year. We got ours last year. We got ours last year. We all know that!

How can the Sox not be disappointed? They under achieved once again.

Well said fisherman,talk about a huge choke.I would rather have a fresh Mauer than a tired hitting champion.If the Twins would have had the Our ship sailed two weeks ago attitude,they would not be where they are today.Maybe the Soxs need to take a better look at themselves.

Hence why they didn't make the playoffs. Hence why the Twins did. The Twins NEVER gave up, even back in June. Any team with self respect and dignity would not give up just because they didn't make the playoffs. You didn't see the Royals give up now did you? Even with 100 losses they still played their hearts out and swept the Tigers.

Windy,

when the TWins lost Liriano on the 7th Aug and Radke a few weeks later,,, your ship should of sailed into port on a stiff tailwind being ahead 8+ in the WC. INstead you were sunk by the combo of Garza,Baker,Silva,Bonser; that's equal to a firecracker sinking a U-Boat.

Your ship sunk with your captian's call to his mates in time of stress agst the PIRANHAS!!!!,, and once you went under, the PIRANHAS ate you alive!!!!!,,, and the TIGERS.

Hey Fisherman, didn't you say that the Sox underacheived last year? And you guys have been to the playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and couldn't even make it to the World Series? Talk about underacheiving!!!!

All you guys keep talkin smack about the Sox.....why? We're still the defending champs until somebody wins it this year.

And until somebody wins it, WE ARE THE CHAMPION, MY FRIEND!!!

And keep talkin smack..........all the Twins have done was won the division. You guys almost got swept by the White Sox minor league system this past weekend.

And don't be too cocky..........excluding divisional foes, you guys have only won 2 series since the all star break against .500 teams.

Commanche...how can you honestly say that the White Sox have not under achieved this year???? Are their any really positive things you can say about how your team did this year. I personally cant come up with any. But the Twins on the other hand i could go on and on about how about this "dream" season they have had this year!

One thing that gives me the utmost gratification is how all Illinois boys all season long were rubbing in how good the your team was and how you are the World Champions.....and If the Twins dont even win one play off game...be rest assured i am that i will be happier than all get up that we played 3 more games this year the the Chicago White Sox! From World Champions one year to not even making the playofss the next....how is that not : confused.gifblush.gifgrin.gifcool.gif( confused.gifunderachieving?? confused.gif

attended saturdays game and sundays game.

All I can say is WOW!!! what a great time.

Went to media day before saturdays game, got to meat Paul Molitor, Terry Ryan and John Gordon.

Sundays game was just a rush the whole day. You just knew something magical was going to happen. Stayed and cheered and it seemed like only a handful of people left. It was awesome how everyone stayed. And then watching the team run out on to the field after the clinch. GOOD TIMES!!!!

I recorded a video on my digital camera that I will try to upload later for all to see.

My wife and I was there Sun. and it was AWESOME!! What a great day. The Puckett video was enough to choke one up. But it was great to see our small market team come running out from the dugout and Hi-5 the crowd and cheer the fans!! Bring on the A's

I was watching the game on FSN. Right smack dab in the middle of the post game show they go to bowling. BOWLING for cripes sake. The Twins are about to win the division and they start covering BOWLING!!!!!

I like bowling as much as the next guy but I wanted to see the outcome of the Detroit game and the following celebration. Guess that's what I get for living 3 miles from the middle of nowhere.

I was in the same boat boilerguy. I thought one of the kids had grabbed the remote. Not one channel was broadcasting anything about the out come of Detroit and our new second team KC. I had to go in the garage and listen to it on the radio. Way to go Twins!!!!!!!!

Guess what Leroy, the Central is the best division and we play them a ton more than the other teams so what you said holds no water.

4 out of 5 years eh? I wouldn't call that underachieving, I would call that utter domination. Your one good season was last year and it is over. Welcome back to your rightful place in the division: 3rd - behind the Twins and playing golf in October!!!!! grin.gifgrin.gif

Whatever makes you feel better! Keep livin' in the past.

As to your remark only two series wins vs teams with a better then a .500 record. Might have something to do with an unabalanced schedule. The only series we lost was in NY. I did remember beating the Sox a bunch of times when it counted. The sweep in Chicago was so sweet.

I agree... Commanche is spewing out sour grapes. be real, live in the "Now" and tell us how you feel about the 2006 ChiSox and how two superior teams outplayed them.... to be more specific, how one team owned them all year and how the other punked them the last month of the year. Was it the horrible pitching? The lack of timely hitting? Ozzie?? Hawk opening up his mouth and spewing garbage? So many choices and I'm certain you've got to have a reason for the demise of the 2006 Sox. I gave your team credit last year for it's great season, but that was LAST year and really think we are about 11 months past that achievement right? They are officially out of the opportunity to defend, therefore roll over and be a big person and give props were props are deserved... or not.

Buzzsaw is right on! The Sox didn't make the playoffs, therefore are no longer defending champs. You no longer can defend something you don't have....and that is an opportunity to play for the championship! Defending champs? Not anymore....PRETENDING CHAMPS is more like it!

Sit up, put your head up, look at the crowd and take the criticisms like a man.

      Court ruling would place unnecessary burdens on more than 500,000 White Bear Lake area residents Judge’s ruling would immediately halt important development within 5 miles of White Bear Lake, stalling road construction, utility improvements, and residential construction Ruling not supported by scientific evidence, creating precedent that could restrict development and impose new burdens on residents across Minnesota  The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources today announced it will appeal a Ramsey County District Court ruling regarding water management of White Bear Lake and its surrounding groundwater. Without appeal, the court’s ruling would place unnecessary burdens on more than 500,000 White Bear Lake area residents, and immediately halt important development within 5 miles of the lake – stalling road and utility improvements, business growth, and residential construction. The judge’s ruling – which is not rooted in the best available science – would not significantly help the lake reach the court’s desired water level, and would likely set a new statewide precedent imposing similar burdens and restrictions on residents, businesses, and communities across Minnesota. “The DNR is strongly committed to protecting Minnesota’s many precious water resources, including White Bear Lake and its surrounding aquifers. We take that responsibility very seriously,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But responsible, effective water management must be supported by sound science. The decisions we make must balance the needs of all Minnesota residents and businesses to ensure everyone has reliable access to clean, affordable water. That important balance, and the quality of life we all enjoy, are at stake in this ruling, which merits a thorough review by the Minnesota Court of Appeals.” Under the District Court’s ruling, if water levels remain below 923.5 feet above sea level in White Bear Lake, new irrigation and development restrictions would be imposed on area residents and businesses. DNR data show, however, that White Bear Lake’s water levels have registered below this proposed 923.5-foot trigger level in 48 out of the past 58 years. And according to the best available science, the DNR has concluded these new restrictions would have little impact on raising or maintaining the court’s desired water levels in White Bear Lake. Nonetheless, if the District Court’s ruling is not overturned, residential watering would be banned for 500,000 area residents by early 2018, and could not resume until the lake rises above 924 feet. Under the court’s ruling, this expansive residential watering restriction would remain in place for multiple years during dry periods, and would have likely been in place for the past 10 years had the court’s order been in effect. Additionally, all temporary water permits for construction within 5 miles of White Bear Lake would be immediately prohibited under the court’s ruling – a change that would stall road construction, utility, and residential development projects in area communities. In the last five years alone, 31 construction projects within 5 miles of the lake required such a permit. “The DNR is firmly committed to protecting our lakes, rivers, and aquifers. But unnecessary water restrictions can be profoundly disruptive to people, our economy, and communities,” Landwehr said. “The science does not support such a broad irrigation ban, nor these extremely restrictive development prohibitions. More importantly, these restrictions would do little to achieve or sustain desirable water levels in White Bear Lake.” Landwehr said, however, that the agency does believe some changes to water use may be needed and it is developing an enhanced water model to better understand the impact of pumping from specific wells near White Bear Lake. “This is information that we have only recently been able to develop,” he said. “With this new tool, we are committed to working with local communities, businesses and residents to make carefully targeted, well-informed modifications to water use in the area.” DNR water experts and local government leaders have serious concerns about the precedent the court’s ruling could establish. If applied elsewhere in Minnesota, this restrictive approach to water management could severely curtail new and amended groundwater appropriation permits for all types of uses, beyond what is needed to ensure water sustainability. The DNR has until Oct. 30 to appeal the court’s decision, but is announcing its decision now because many area communities are concerned with the ruling and want to know how the DNR will proceed. During the appeal process, the DNR will work with permit holders in the White Bear Lake area to implement some elements of the ruling. The agency will be talking soon with communities about how it will approach this in as collaborative a manner as possible. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I wouldn't let length or hp determine that, just the wind.  I saw a boat that lost a rivet this last year and have heard about a weld cracking out there.  The wind is no joke out there and any boat can take a hit.    If it is really windy I just swing into Kabekona Bay.   Otherwise, just count on it taking a while to get out to spots.
    • monstermoose78
      I do, never thought about it. I will ask my buddy and I will have to work on blind retrieves. I never have done blind retrieves with Finn. I will have learn up on it now. If you have any tips or tricks it would help. Thank you Dave

      Didn't catch a ton of fish this weekend but the ones we got were beauties. Just a bunch 15-17 inch fish with a 25" mixed in there. Last 2 days have been tough after the storm Sunday night. Marking tons of fish still and getting a good amount of bites on both spinners and lindys but most are biting short and tough to hook on the big minnows. Don't really want to throw on a stinger hook but that might be the way to go. Maybe should try pulling some cranks too. Looks like the rest of the week should be stable weather and good fishing!

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Water temps are hovering in the low 60’s despite the very fall like weather we are experiencing. 

      The scenic Canadian shore lines are coming to life with various critters. Otter, bear and more making preparations for the coming winter.

      Walleye fishing in Canada is excellent with a jig and minnow or shiner. The most productive environment has been gaps at 15-18’ with plenty of current present. Good numbers of perch are being caught off deep edges or reefs at 30’ or more. Crappies are a little more difficult this week, the best chances are on a light set up.

      Around Minnesota, walleyes can still be had with a crankbait but favored methods are switching over to a jig tipped with a shiner on main lake points between 20 and 24’. 

      Muskies are moving deeper with anglers transitioning from casting to trolling. There is still time to boat a big fall fish!

      We hope to see you soon!

      Welcome to the forum. Give it a month and throw it on C/list, it should go then.
    • rundrave
        Im not a waterfowl guy and dont do a lot of it. But isn't that why you retriever guys do blind retrieves? My GSP's dont always mark down birds either and I just send them with hand signals. I think its just something we have worked on over time. Do you know anyone that has access to a zinger winger launcher etc. That's about the only other way to replicate it with out doing the real thing.
    • monstermoose78
      Thanks Dave this seemed to help with grouse, woodcocks,and ducks.  How does a guy get a dog to stay focused on the sky watching for birds? Finn did great at sitting or laying down for ducks but he does not watch for them so he does not mark the birds then. Any ideas to get him to do this?
