      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 .

do we start santana before game 5?

I realize we are not done yet, and I hope we can come back on these guys. In reality Oakland has to win 1 of the next 3 games to seal the deal. Im not throwing in the towel yet and hopefully the team doesnt either, but odds are not in our favor right now.

Remember what Boston did to the Spankees last year! Gardy said if they get to game 4 they'd start Santana... atleast thats what they said on ESPN radio.

I would start Radke for #3, he'll give it his all. Problem with the team is silent bats and nerves of jell-o. I believe they can win the next game, but they are going to have to approach it all somehow differently than they have. I mean c'mon, 3 runs in 2 home games is PATHETIC!!! confused.gif

Start Radke game 3. He's the guy that's played on the road, in Oakland, during the playoffs, and played well. Tall order but I really think if anyones up for the task, it's Bradke.

HOWEVER, the rest of the fellas need to HIT THE BALL!!!!!!!

It's a typical Gardy team. They get soft the last two weeks of the season and have nothing in the playoffs.

We need a no hitter from Radke at this rate.

Pretty simple here, Have to win the next one. Season is done if you don't win the next one. Nothing you can do about the first two just need to win the next one now.

I really believe the good news is the fact that the As are NOT a better baseball team. Now if the Twins can just get the mental collapse stopped. One thing is for sure. They deserve to not be given up on this year until the very last out. This team has earned that much. I can only think of a couple teams that have shown this kind of character. Geno remembers one of them.

The answer is simple...Just ask JoeBoo.

Radke is throwing Game 3. I think they should go with Silva in Game 4 and save Santana for Game 5 at the dome on Sunday. Make a few less mental mistakes like Castillo missing the bunt sign in game one and striking out looking 3 times in game 2. Hunter just keep the ball in front. Get a few guys on base BEFORE you have 2 outs. The bottom line is they have a tough task just to get it back to MN. Haren pitched the twins tough last time 1-0 A's won and Harden is probably the best pitcher on the A's staff(he is starting game 4) he has just been banged up. The gotta pitch, hit and play the d. One game at a time.... 3 times in a row....I have tickets for game 5.......don't want to have to fish instead!! cool.gif

Two days of vacation wasted watching the Twins play bad A ball. I'm going fishing, the Twins are toast. If they play Sunday I'm not going to waste my time going to the dome and watch them screw up another home game.

Hey Buzzy,

Actually, last year the Sux swept Boston.

Now, I'm gonna go cry and watch the World Series DVD because I know the Sux could have made a statement this year if they just got in.

Oh well, there's always next year.

Commanche,

I was thinking the same thing but didn't want to post it just yet. So far the Central has been punching bags to their opponents. I know the Pale Hose would have faired better against either opponent. Windy

It's very easy to "know" your team will win games you didn't even qualify to play for. I enjoyed your posts until very recently. Now get a grip and display just a little class. This isn't an MLB message board.

actually sox went 2-4 against the yanks and 3-3 against the a's this season....what was all that talk about the twins not playing well against .500 teams, the twin split with the yanks and were 6-4 against the a's, not to say the twins are doing any better now but atleast their in the playoffs

      My rod bag with 5 rods in it fell off my sled while walking out from the public access on Sat. afternoon.
      I didn't notice until I had walked out to a spot and drilled some holes and started to get set up to fish.
      By the time I walked back to shore the bag had been picked up.


      Please let me know if you have any info.
      Thank you,

      Looked like a good time guys. Wish i could have been there unfortunatly i had to work. I hope i can make the next one.

      Got out Saturday afternoon and after putting in some time drilling holes finally found panfish in 20-24 ft, almost in the basin areas I'd look mid winter.  Crappie and sunfish were mixed and we caught almost all of our fish on a small jig and waxworm.  Tried minnows and only caught a couple fish that way, even when we were catching fish on waxworms in a hole 3 ft away.  They seemed to want something to chase so keeping the jig moving and pulling away from them helped quite a bit.  Had 10" of ice where we were fishing and was pretty consistent, but there's lots of reports of extremely varying ice thickness so keep checking ice thickness on your way out.

      WARNING a buddy was on  MELISSA and was aiming towards the crappie hole in the NE Corner/First break to fish out there last night.  He was checking ice and was having 10" of ice then hit 3"!  Please be careful out there.  Needless to say he turned around and went back to the access.

      Best use I can think of for a selfie stick. Great fish.

      I will second what Icehawk said.... some good lakes around you. Briggs chain is close, some very nice fish in that system. I tend to fish fairly shallow(under 10ft) most of the time 6-8 right in or on the edge of the weeds for the gills.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.
