      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 .

Thank you Twins for a memorable summer, I can now return to some fall fishing not having to worry about watching any more Twins baseball this fall. I would have like to see them go farther but they were a much better team then anyone thought they would be. Am already looking forward to next season and I hope it can be as much fun as this past one was. Hope we can keep the core together and of course improve our starting pitching and still find that big bat for the DH spot. Congrats Twins and I hope when other calm down they will see it was a pretty good year for Twins baseball. At the very Least we played three more games then Windy ! grin.giftongue.gif

I agree completely! Terribly hard to watch the post season end the way it did, but they gave us 162 games of excitement! I guess we'd have been better off playing the NYY. Regardless, this was my favorite Twins team even over the 1987 and 1991 World Series Champions. Hope they keep the team together.

I'd like to say thanks to a great year as well.

They are a young team, and they will be back.

I really enjoyed the ride this year, we have a great team!

I think it would be kinda cool seeing the Mets vs. Yankees in the world series?

What do you guys think?

The Twins are in a rebuilding year and they ended up winning the division. Even against teams set to win now (White Sox).

They did better than anyone and probably even themselves thought they could do. With so much happening it ended up being a great year.

Hopefully they can keep a few of these players and hopefully get the DH spot figured out. That is our main weakness. I bet in the american league we had one of the worst stats for DH's.

Thomas maybe ?

Even though I thought they celebrated a little too much before they even got to the playoffs they did great.

Can't wait for next year to see what happens.

a few months ago we were leaving this team for dead. Then it got to the point where we were glad that they were just being competetive finally. Then it went to the point were we had a 1 out of 20 chance at making the postseason and even that little hope excited us. I was of the thinking that if they made it this year it would be awesome but not expected. I was happy with them just making improvments toward next year. Then they go win the division and shock us all.

This really was a team building toward next year. If this is what we can do during a rebuilding year just think what we can do next year when we will be built to win.

And now since the Twins can't win any more the next best thing is watching the Yanks lose. I would love to see the Tigers win the World Series for a few reasons.

The tigers have been smart with how they built their team. They did it through the draft and the minor leagues and with a few strategic free agents. They did it the right way, the way the twins do it and its nice to see a franchise pull itself out of the cellar and rise to the top. They have been the leagues door mat long enough. It wasn't too long ago they almost set the record for most losses in a season.

Also I would like to see the Championship stay in the AL Central. It would help prove that we play in a tough division. I would love to see the AL central go 3 for 3 in world series titles. THe white sox in 2005, tigers in 2006 and the Twins in 2007. The east coast bias media can then stick those three titles in their ear.

I think the A's actually did it to the White Sox Train. Nice thing about our championship ring is that it is still shiny and new. Not 20 years old. Sounds like some whining going on up in the land of 10,000 lakes...Bitter? You should be, your Twinks were the biggest dissapointment in the playoffs. Biggest collapse since the Hindenburg. Windy

Well I' d have to say soundly that the Yankee collapse that is occurring right now is much worse. grin.gif As a pure baseball fan I am still impressed with the way the Minnesota Twins fought back in the second half of the season, for alot of these guys it was there first dose of the playoffs, they have a great foundation and were a pleasure to watch. If I was a Twins fan I would be feeling quite alright this team came back essentially from the gutter to do what they did, here here!

Tim,

I think that's about as nice a way as you could say SOME fans should "just grow up". One of these days I might.

Nyuk, nyuk.

Now another interesting game coming up for your Cards. Albert just couldn't be the hero today - maybe tomorrow.

I can go along with that CNY but the Twinks has to be a close second with the way they went into the playoffs like a house on fire...Too bad The Big Hurt put the fire out with his Big Hose. Go Cards! Windy

Viking Tom,

You really seem to favor the word "suck" in your vocabulary. Didn't your mom breast feed you enough when you were a baby? Just ax-in! Windy

You know, breast feeding too long can lead to child obesity which leads to possible morbid obesity as an adult which in turn usually means a life of health problems and a premature death.

I would also say thanks for the interesting run at the end.I will admit that I gave them up for dead a long time ago and they made it so close that I must have watched the last 40 games.

They had a tough run in the play-offs but were great otherwise.Next year that division is going to be one tough place to win games.

Sled,

You talking like more than an hr at a time or like until somebody is like a teenager?

Secondly, what happens if you re-start that habit at around 19 or so?

Just Ax-In....

I would say that breast feeding a child until they are a teenager would probably leave that child not only tubby, but pretty sexually confused.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!

      Any where from 12' to 30' humps. Bass and a few walleyes setting up on top and sides of these humps. Cliff

      Duck hunting is expected to be good when Minnesota’s regular waterfowl season opens a half-hour before sunrise on Saturday, Sept. 23. “The number of breeding ducks in Minnesota and North America has been good in recent years, so we’re optimistic that will result in a good duck season,” said Steve Cordts, waterfowl specialist with the Department of Natural Resources. “Wetland habitat conditions and wild rice lakes are in pretty good shape.  Canada goose populations remain high as well, so there’s lots of opportunity to hunt geese this fall.” Duck seasons and limits
      The duck season structure is similar to recent years. The waterfowl seasons are based on a federal framework that applies to all states in the Mississippi Flyway. Waterfowl hunting regulations are available wherever DNR licenses are sold and online at mndnr.gov/regulations/hunting. Duck season will be open for 60 days in each of the three waterfowl zones: In the north zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Tuesday, Nov. 21. In the central zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 1, closes for five days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 7, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 26. In the south zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Oct. 1, closes for 12 days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 14, and runs through Sunday, Dec. 3. The daily duck bag limit remains six per day. The mallard bag limit remains four per day, including no more than two hen mallards. The daily bag limits are three for wood duck and scaup; and two for redheads, canvasbacks and black ducks and one for pintails. The DNR will post a weekly waterfowl migration report each week during the duck season. The reports are typically posted on Thursday afternoon at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl. Goose and sandhill crane seasons
      Minnesota’s goose season will reopen in conjunction with the duck season statewide on Sept. 23, with a bag limit of three dark geese per day the entire season. “Dark” geese include Canada geese, white-fronted geese and brant. The daily bag limit for light geese is 20. “Light geese” include snow, blue and Ross’s geese.  Goose season will be closed in the central and south duck zones when duck season is closed. The season for sandhill cranes remains open through Sunday, Oct. 22 in the northwest goose and sandhill crane zone only. The daily bag limit will be one sandhill crane per day. A $3 sandhill crane permit is required in addition to a small game hunting license. More information on duck, goose, sandhill crane and other migratory bird hunting is available in the 2017 Minnesota Waterfowl Hunting Regulations booklet from license vendors and online at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl.
