      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 .

Detroit get better; when do Twins make a move?

Recommended Posts

IFallsRon

The Detroit Tigers' season ended just short of the team's first World Series title since 1984. But they think they just added a piece to the puzzle that could change all that next year.

The team has announced that they have acquired Yankees slugger Gary Sheffield and signed him to a two-year extension, keeping him under contract through the 2009 season.

The Tigers will become the seventh team Sheffield has played for in his career.

In exchange, the Yankees will receive three minor-league pitchers — Humberto Sanchez, Kevin Whelan and Anthony Claggett.

Tigers have to get better to even have a chance next year. Central Division will be tough!! Concern over the “extra baggage” Sheffield brings with him, but he did win in Florida with Leyland and Dembrowski. I’m upset about giving the Yankees three pitchers, but I guess we didn’t have much choice. Sanchez has been called our best starting prospect, but lately, he probably has moved behind Andrew Miller. Today, after the trade, I read that “his conditioning may not be what the team wants.” Never heard that before. We still need a big hitting first baseman.

Okay i'm not sold on the Tigers getting better! First off they just took on a huge headcase at a way inflated salary and mortgaged some of their future by giving up three pitchers that they held in high regards. If Sheffield hits 60 HR's per season and wins gold gloves it was a good trade, otherwise he's basically another Albert Belle type headcase... he's been on seven teams!!! That should tell us something.

All those award's doesn't mean sqwat, how about a World Series title is what matters the most. Morneau is going to cost the Twins alot of money they won't spent along with Mauer. Tigers got alot better with Sheffield, Twins should of went after him and plug him in the DH spot. Twins will always be the Twins, spend cheap. WE NEED PITCHING HELP...

Radke is done, even if he wanted to come back, he needs surgery, so is out. Unless he pulls a Clemons and un-retires in August after a long rest. He might get 2 months out of his shoulder.

      My rod bag with 5 rods in it fell off my sled while walking out from the public access on Sat. afternoon.
      I didn't notice until I had walked out to a spot and drilled some holes and started to get set up to fish.
      By the time I walked back to shore the bag had been picked up.


      Please let me know if you have any info.
      Thank you,

      Looked like a good time guys. Wish i could have been there unfortunatly i had to work. I hope i can make the next one.

      Got out Saturday afternoon and after putting in some time drilling holes finally found panfish in 20-24 ft, almost in the basin areas I'd look mid winter.  Crappie and sunfish were mixed and we caught almost all of our fish on a small jig and waxworm.  Tried minnows and only caught a couple fish that way, even when we were catching fish on waxworms in a hole 3 ft away.  They seemed to want something to chase so keeping the jig moving and pulling away from them helped quite a bit.  Had 10" of ice where we were fishing and was pretty consistent, but there's lots of reports of extremely varying ice thickness so keep checking ice thickness on your way out.

      WARNING a buddy was on  MELISSA and was aiming towards the crappie hole in the NE Corner/First break to fish out there last night.  He was checking ice and was having 10" of ice then hit 3"!  Please be careful out there.  Needless to say he turned around and went back to the access.

      Best use I can think of for a selfie stick. Great fish.

      I will second what Icehawk said.... some good lakes around you. Briggs chain is close, some very nice fish in that system. I tend to fish fairly shallow(under 10ft) most of the time 6-8 right in or on the edge of the weeds for the gills.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.
