      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 .

I remember all the smack talk last year about Big Frank, one of my favorite players..............

There were many names that were thrown out there like "The Big Skirt"

My question is this......

What do you call him now?

The Big "Hurt"

The Big "Twin Killer"

The Big "Hurt-Yo-Han"

The Big "That's Gotta Hurt"

The Big "The Twins lost the series because our pitchers were HURT"

The Big "Commanche Jim said some very nasty things and I was very very HURT"

I know, I know................it's not over yet.

For the good of the central, at least don't get swept.

You're a real classy fan,

You can come here and talk smack all you want, but the truth is you have been owned by the Twins basically since 2002.

You had a good season last year and when it ended, many of the people here congratulated you and Windy, now you wanna come in here and gloat because the team that eliminated your underachievers got beat.

Anyway, I am watching a playoff game tomorrow(or at least listening) and you and the Sux are crying in your beers.

Wonder what game you will have on about 12:00 in your bar tomorrow? confused.gif

That's right, the Central div. champion Twins.

Wow, touche'...........

The Sux.....the White Sox bashing, the chokers, the underacheivers......the hateful words toward the Sox, me, and Windy over the past year and a half. laugh.gif

If you can dish it out, I would at least expect you to take it.

I am, in a way, pulling for you guys and your Twins. But after today, it doesn't look really good.

I don't remember anyone else's bashing, but I admit I did and I do remember Jim's story about meeting Frank and all.

And I'm sure he misses ol' Frank like lots of other Wsox fans and probably some of his teammates, but the A's sure are glad to have him this year.

I would not be pitchin' much to him in close games that's for sure. He commands a lttle more respect after his season comeback and especially after today.

Geno,

Thanks for watching Jimbo's back. We never bashed Big Frank as he was a favorite on the south side for years and even if we did it would be like in Animal House when Boone and Otter were talking about their pledges..."They can't do that to our pledges...Only WE can do that to our pledges". Great flick. Windy

Indeed a great flick, Windy.

Last night I saw some blurb on the sportsnews that Frank is now one of the oldest to homer. Couldn't hear it all, so I don't know if it was homer twice or in playoffs/series or what, but anyway, he is now in select company of Babe Ruth and, egad, Larry Walker?????

Here is a paste off Fox just for Windy and Jim as a reminder of what all the Twinkie fans are saying :

"Posted: 15 hours ago

Frank Thomas' old team is home for the postseason."

After going hitless the entire series, leaving all those runners on base and having one great series against Detroit.

Just wanted to see if there was still room on the Frank Thomas bandwagon?

Just can't bring myself to bash him for a bad series after the season he had. Certainly did not clutch but either did his teammates.

But let me just say that his out to end that playoff game with the basesloaded and down by 3 really put a big Hurt on the A's fans. Nyuk, nyuk.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.
