      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 .

Not to create any problems, but reality check here:

The Twins can now be compared to the Buffalo Bills or the Atlanta Braves in a way.

Can't win the big one........... 4 of last 5 years to the playoffs and not even a world series appearance.

Not good.

totaly agree with you on that, its really bad if you look at it. Yeah you make it to the playoff's 4 of the last 5 years but dont do crap once you get there. I look at it this way, its a Minnesota sports team they get you all pumped up for the playoff's then all of a sudden they rip your heart out and I am use to this by now.

I was talking to a friend about this. We have a great time all year and cheer and love all of their accomplishments. They win a big series or even the division or confrence. That is where they have looked and prepared for. Period. The teams and players "Dream" of the post season, but they are relatively in awe of being there. It also rips my heart out when I am passionate about the year and nothing more comes out. I also want to say that even though we are not players, the fans have a similar feeling or emotion when our "guys" are on the field.

Yes, someone on another thread pointed out that the Twins were in a rebuilding year and still wasted the sox in the standings.

Wild and Commanche,

Well said. I think the Twinks new nick name should be

The One and Done Fun Club. And Geno, just getting to the dance don't mean you are leaving with the prom queen. We got ours last year, we got the prom queen's panties, if you know what I mean. The Twinks have had to go home from 5 dances now with Rosie Palm and her 5 sisters! Better luck next year Twinks, you are in the same dung heap as the Cubbies and Sox are for 2006, misery loves company. |

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES! Windy

Windy, Windy, oh so windy....

I'll take an invitation over being ignored anyday. Last year's dance ended a long time ago - so stop dreamin' about it - when the WSox got close, the queen put on the ol' safety belt, if YOU know what I mean, and when the WSox found out, they slithered away into losers territory without putting up a fight. It was the Twins who never gave up and deserve the Division Champ title they took away while your guys were dreaming about the queen. Ozzie and the guys must have been thinkin' with the wrong, what did you call it, johnsomething, while the Twins thought about how to get invited to this year's dance.

I love the way that you and Windy talk to everyone. Like some old vets of baseball powerhouses. Please remeber that although we have not made a World Series in our last four playoff tries we have won 2 World Series in our last 6 tries. Would you like to discuss any further the title runs of you Sox since the early 1900's?

The Sox had an amazing run last year but if they can't back that up with more playoff appearances and more titles they were nothing more than this centuries title and the new cry will be wait until 2106.

You guys are kind of like the kids in high school who missed every dance because they couldn't find a date and then finally at the senior prom, everything fell into place. The good looking jocks were gone, the chaperones weren't looking, and your internet date was a little tipsy. Next thing you know, you finally make the score. Now you want to tell everyone what ladies men you are.

Well said fishyguy! I too am sad that the twins season is over, but just look at the young nucleus they have to build from! The twins have always been a smart business team by not selling there future for the present. Year in and year out the twins will always be making some noise and eventually the will get a title for #7 and the rest of the stallions! Maybe next year somebody could turn the lights on in the cellar for Windy and Jim because that is where his SUX will be! wink.gif

I know its hard for white sox fans, after all they win the series and are still 2nd fiddle to the cubs in chicago.

How is it not a dissapointment....errrr CHOKE that the White Sox not only win the series, but greatly improve their team in the following offseason, and end up 3rd in a division and not in playoffs, cant wait for the series to be over this year so fellow sox fans canstop playing the world series trump card.

    • Harpenter
      I'm 4-5 hours South, but my cousin texted me yesterday and said guys are walking out from the North side of French.  He said there's still open water on the South side though.

      @river rat316 is turning into a walleye guy Boo!  Just let me know when you want to fish for gills again.
    • crappie king 42
      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.
    • Naturboy
      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.
