      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.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has produced six new, state-of-the-art maps that will make it easier and safer for people to explore, hunt, and recreate in state forests.   “The DNR has updated six state forests with 53 more to go,” said Forrest Boe, director of the DNR Forestry Division. “This five-year effort will include updating maps for all of Minnesota’s state forests.” State forest users now have two maps options. A geoPDF map will allow users to download a map onto a mobile device using a variety of map apps and then track their location as a blue dot on the screen. The new user-friendly, paper maps highlight the unique recreation features of each forest and include pop-out maps for popular campgrounds and day-use areas. “The little blue dot that appears on the map on my phone goes with me whether I’m on or off-trail,” said Laura Duffey, DNR state forest map project coordinator. “This feature lets people know exactly where they are in a state forest—no more getting lost.” The maps are also more detailed than previous versions and highlight the endless recreation opportunities in state forests, such as hiking, mountain biking, birding, berry picking, cross-country skiing, hunting, and horseback, ATV and snowmobile riding. Many state forests also offer campgrounds, fishing piers, boat launches, swimming beaches, and picnic areas. The six new maps are available in time for fall hunting and cover more than 240,000 acres of state forest land and thousands of miles of trails. New geoPDF and paper maps are now available for: Paul Bunyan State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Badoura State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Croix State Forest in Pine County Huntersville State Forest in Cass, Hubbard and Wadena counties Lyons State Forest in Wadena County. Chengwatana State Forest in Pine and Chisago counties The Paul Bunyan and Badoura state forests are popular spots for hunters. Combined, they contain two campgrounds and day-use areas, four off-highway vehicle trails, five wildlife management areas (WMA), two ruffed grouse management areas, and four state game refuges. They also have hiking, biking, snowmobiling and skiing trails. The Huntersville and Lyons state forests are popular with hunters. Each state forest contains four WMAs and several miles of trails and roads for off-highway vehicles. Additionally, the Huntersville State Forest offers two campgrounds, a horse campground, and 24 miles of designated horse trails. The St. Croix State Forest offers a variety of year-round recreation opportunities. It has 20 miles of horseback trails and a horse campground with 56 campsites. In the winter snowmobilers can enjoy 42 miles of trails while in the summer mountain bikers can cruise 25 miles of trails. The Boulder Campground and day-use area has 22 secluded campsites and access to Rock Lake for swimming, fishing and boating. The Chengwatana State Forest contains the Snake River Campground and several miles of off-highway motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle trails. Three state water trails run through the forest: Kettle River, Snake River, and St. Croix River. Snowmobliers also use the Matthew Lourey State Trail, which runs through the forest. The new maps also shows locations of National Park Service campsites along the St. Croix River.Digital, geoPDF maps are available on the state forest’s webpage at www.mndnr.gov/stateforests. People can get a free paper map at a local DNR office or the DNR Info Center by sending an email to info.dnr@state.mn.us or calling 888-646-6367, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
