      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 .

Another Gardy team that wasn't ready for the playoffs yet reports are that he'll get a three-year extension at $1.75 mil a year. That means he'll keep hillbillies Anderson, Liddle and that guy at first base who the boys hand their gloves.

It was a team effort. They all sucked. But hey, you gotta end the season playing just as hard as you started it, and they sure did that, LOL. Did I mention, Go Tigers!

Yeah Anderson is a hillbilly who deserves to be fired. Oh wait he only has the BEST starter in the League along with the BEST bullpen in the league. They don't get that way and stay that way by mere chance.

I do feel that much of playoff blame can go to

Gardenhire, for not getting his team up, not playing the guys that got you there, and making some bone head decisions that almost made it seem like he himself wasn't quite prepared to make game situation decisions. Yet I think he should be the AL coach of the year and don't want to see him or Anderson leave.

gardy wasn't swinging the bats for these guys. the blame goes directly to the offense. what were they with runners in scoring position?

thats baseball... detroit plays terrible down the stretch and everyone writes them off. they were supposed to get swept by the yankees. a yankees team with the best lineup in history possibly.

Weren't you guys roasting Ozzie about two weeks ago for allowing his team to give up? It was manager, manager, manager...That's all I heard. Even though I said it was the players who pitch and hit and they should take the blame. Shoe's on the other foot now. I still blame the players. I was just adding a little fuel to the fire in my calling for Gardy's head.

"Things that make you go...HMMM? Windy

wow all you guys can complain about gardy, heck i would of point my fingers at the players and gardy, they're hearts wernt into the playoffs. gardy needs to be the coach, hes done a heck of a job so far ever since hes been with the team. how many divison champs has he won with the team?? oh wait you guys probally now will say its not him that won it its the team. so when it comes down the team losen its his fault and when it comes down to the team wining its all the players. hes part of the team and the way i see it, its as much of his fault as much as the players fault too.

Get real!!!

There is nothing wrong with Gardy. Nobody in MLB consistently gets more from his players than Gardy. How many teams were in the playoffs that had a starting staff full of rookies and a lineup with all kinds of AAA players?

By the way Rick Anderson is one of the best if not the best pitching coaches EVER in baseball. You are on drugs.

Are you serious windy? Torre asks for more money a year than a majority of the twins players. I want to see the day that the twins pay a manager 7 million a year. crazy.gif

Joe Torre is to baseball coaching what Phil Jackson is to coaching basketball.... these guys get teams that are loaded and run with them. I'll take Gardy over Torre, thank you very much.

But I'd take Torre over Ozzie Guillen all day long!! Whatcha think of them apples Windy? I mean a third place finish for a team expected to repeat has to be disappointing. You wouldn't get all that crazy talk from Torre as you do with Guillen... basically a more level clubhouse. It might be what the White Sox need to compete again next year.

I think the Twins have a lot of things going for them. Liriano, Santana are top tier pitchers and the rest of the starters should also do well next year. M&M, Cuddy, and Castillo are all solid. We even got great play from Bartlett, Tyner, and Punto which I think surprised a lot of people.

As the Skipper, Gardy had a lot to do with that. I respect him as a coach, however we seem to have a Denny Green-like thing going on. Great teams during the regular season that can't seem to compete in the play-offs. Now don't get me wrong, I don't equate the two -- I have much more respect for Gardy. But at some point we have say we can do better. Maybe he gets 1-2 more years and then it's time to try someone else.

Windy will never openly admitt that he agrees with any of us so i would take his silence as an sign of agreement.

Torre is a better manager the Ozzie hands down, Ozzie knows baseball but not how to manage players. Torre has had to manage a team of allstar egos for years and he has do it well.

Torre doesn't do anything IMO. He is managing a team of superstars. Nothing he does or doesn't do has any effect on that team.

Of course this is only my point of view.

With the budget that tightwad Pohlad gives Ryan I think he's got to be a miracle worker to even put a competitive team on the field let alone a division champ. No other big time GM would even touch this team with Pohlad's budget constraints on them...

Things could always be worse. In my opinion, Gardy has done an outstanding job with this team. Most of this team has been built from minor league players. He seems to get the rookies to produce. He had no hesitation to bench and send to minor league the big money players like Lohse, Silva, Rivas, etc. in the past.

Leave it to Mitty to harp on Ryan. Terry Ryan is widely considered to be one of the best general managers in all of baseball. He puts a competetive team on the field every year despite not getting competetive money from Pohlad at times. He did sign a few players that turned out to be less then expected, but thats the case with every team in baseball. I choose to look at the players he has gotten that have been way more then expected and he got them at affordable prices.

Also in defense of Rondell White, alot of players are not able to pick up the DH role easily. Some guys need the routine of playing in the field. One such guy is Shannon Stewart, he just can't hit in the DH spot, never could and probably never will.

In general Mitty your complaints are so bizarre and contrary to any rational thought that it makes it really hard to take you seriously. I assume you are just trying to get a reaction out of us, I hope you are enjoying it.

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.
    • guideman
      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
