      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!

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.

Best of all, the Twins kicked the White Sux out of contention.

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.

      Thanks much Huntnfish and ZachD!!!  Had the wife pick me up some CCI 209 Magnum primers and seems to have fixed the issue.  Went out the other night and put 7 rounds through the ole CVA and didn't have a single hangfire.  I'm ready for the weekend.

      Anglers and others interested in Department of Natural Resources strategies for managing Grand Marias area lakes and streams are invited to review and comment on management plans scheduled for review this fall. This annual process includes several waters located within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Comments on lakes within the BWCAW will be accepted until Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW, will extend through Feb. 15. A management plan identifies specific management activities planned for a lake or stream over the next five to 20 years, including any proposed stocking or special regulations. “Management plans are our best single sources of information on past, present and desired future conditions in our lakes and streams,” said Steve Persons, Grand Marais area fisheries supervisor. “Comments and suggestions from those most interested in these waters are crucial when it comes to making plans and determining management success. For anglers this is the best opportunity to influence how these lakes and streams are managed.” In the Grand Marais area, plans for the following lakes and streams will reviewed this winter. Lake plans under review: The status and preservation of native lake trout populations will be the primary concern in plans being revised for Blue Snow and Gabimichigami Lakes. Both are located inside the BWCAW. Stream trout stocking and management strategies will be reviewed in Thompson, Thrush, Turnip, Olson, Kraut, Little Portage, Olga, Mavis (BWCAW), Missing Link (BWCAW), Meditation (BWCAW), Talus, Trout, Pine (near Two Island Lake), Unnamed (near Tom Lake), Chester, Extortion, and North Shady Lakes. Options to consider include changes in species, reductions in stocking frequency, and changes in the number or size of fish stocked. In Mine, Peanut, Weasel (Sled), Tomato, Trip, and Rog (BWCAW) Lakes, fisheries managers are considering eliminating trout stocking, due to the high cost of stocking remote lakes by air, poor survival of stocked fish, or use that appears to have been too low to justify the cost of continued stocking.  Angler feedback on fisheries in these lakes is critically needed for these important decisions. Plans for Devilfish, Gust, Hand, and Tom Lakes will be reviewed with attention to the status and needs of walleye fisheries in those lakes. Moore Lake will be reviewed to determine whether it offers any potential for panfish management. Plans for several lightly-used BWCAW lakes in the area, including Caribou (by Clearwater), Clove, Kiskadinna, Long, Mora, Morgan, Skipper, and Tepee Lakes will be reviewed. Those plans will be revised primarily to incorporate any new survey data that may have been obtained, and to establish survey schedules for the next few years. Streams plans under review: Plans for Beaverdam Creek and the Swamp River will be reviewed.  Both are marginal trout streams, and may be considered for removal from the State’s list of designated trout streams. Plans for the Cascade River, Elbow Creek, and the Onion River will also be reviewed. All three support thriving brook trout populations, with the Cascade and Onion Rivers also supporting steelhead and salmon in their lower reaches. Plans will focus on habitat and water quality, hydrology and watershed issues. The DNR is considering removing the portion of Elbow Creek above Elbow Lake from the State’s list of designated trout streams, since no trout have been found in that part of the stream in recent surveys. Current plans for lakes and streams in the area as well as recent fish population assessment information are available for review at the DNR’s Grand Marais area fisheries office, at 1356 E. Highway 61, Grand Marais, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information, call or email Steve Persons at 218-387-6022 or steve.persons@state.mn.us. Public comments on management of BWCAW waters are due by Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW will extend through Feb. 15. Comments, suggestions and other feedback on the management of these, and all other streams and lakes in the area are welcomed at any time and will be considered when those plans are next due for review. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The first set of replacements I bought from a dealership but they are spendy. I bought some Ancos at Fleet Farm like I have in the past for all my vehicles, but there is no adapter that fits the end of the  blade arm. What are others using?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the city of Willow River will host a public open house on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 to discuss options for the Willow River dam which was severely damaged during a July 2016 rain storm. The open house will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Willow River School located at 8142 Pine Street, Willow River, Minn. Participants can visit displays during the first hour of the open house to learn more about three options currently being considered.  At 7:30 p.m. DNR staff will make a presentation about the features, benefits and cost of each option and answer questions about next steps. The meeting purpose is to receive public input about the options and to answer questions about the state’s process. The dam was built in 1940 as a cooperative venture between the Works Progress Administration and the then Department of Conservation. Heavy rains from a July 2016 thunderstorm overwhelmed the capacity of the dam and caused a significant breach of the north embankment. Options include replacement of the dam to meet current safety standards, removal of the dam, or restoration of the river channel with a series of rock weirs, or rock rapids, to retain water levels but to allow passage of small craft as well as the movement of fish. “We have a rare opportunity to reimagine how this stretch of river might function and look like in the future,” said project manager Jason Boyle. “We look forward to hearing from area residents and moving the project forward.” Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I am noodling this same concept over.  I am thinking either a dedicated (portable) battery, since I may be pulling on shore to the ice with the 4-wheeler or a hand, boat-type winch, not always hooked up to the truck.
