      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 .

Rose admits to betting on Reds everynight

I just took an ESPN poll on whether Major League Baseball should reinstate Pete Rose.

70% Yes

30% No

Rule: If you bet on baseball, you are banned from baseball

Fact: Rose bet on baseball

The thing that gets me is after lying to us for 15 years, he finally comes clean as part of a book publicity tour (if he didn't make enough money off of baseball) Now he continue making a mockery out of our pastime.

I like the fact that people now are believing that he only bet on his team to win......Let him in the hall of fame as a player cause he was one of the greatest but never let him participate in everyday baseball again!!!!

870E,

Did you ever see this guy play during the 1970's?

I've never met Rose, and he seems like a real horses hind-end, but he played the game the way it was supposed to be played. One of the best ever, period.

I say, carve-out a place for him in the Hall, then ignore him until 'he gone'.

If anyone is making a mockery of the game it's Bud Selig.

Charlie Hustle, put him in the hall.

A HOF indeed. But just to warn you, i'm a Barry Bonds fan also. I love the man's swing, and until proven guilty? Rose's whole spiel lately is becuz he know's he will never get in until he fesses up. The HOF should be on what he did when he played. If you took into account all the post retirement issues with current HOF"s in every sport, we could go on and on. I'm sure I'll get ripped, but he is a Hall of Fame baseball player.

Boyhood hero of mine. Watched him play quite a few games live in the early 70's. He indeed played it the way it was meant to be. This nightmare gets worse everytime he opens his mouth. He's a sick man that should have gotten help two decades ago. He just doesn't get it. And Baseball selectively allows him to participate when it benefits them. Rose participated in All Century team festivities etc. Huge Rose display opens at Cincy GABP next month. Is he completely banned or not? They aren't handling many things very well IMO.

Failin'onPhalen I have seen a couple of Rose's games on ESPN Classic. I more than agree with you that he played the game the right way (1970 All-Star Game).

The fact is the rulebook says if you break Rule 21 (gambling in baseball), you cannot make the HOF. If Selig lets him in, Selig has to rewrite the rules allowing people who put their financial interest ahead of their team. I don't like the option of letting him in as a player because he was betting while he was a player too. I just read an article where John Dowd (Dowd Report) states that time constraints prevented him from uncovering that Rose bet against his beloved Reds. The HOF has a character test, and Rose failed.

another thing I don't hear people bring up is that he was a player/manager if I recall.......so then wasn't he actually betting then while he was a player......either way I could care less what he did.....he is a jackhole but as a player you can't deny the feats he accomplished......it is very similar to the shoeless joe story.....there is no way you can prove as a player either of them did a thing to throw a game...Both should be in the HOF!!!!

The cardinal rule of baseball is never bet. Rose broke that rule and lied about it.

Rose will not outlive the baseball writers who vote for the hall of fame.

"another thing I don't hear people bring up is that he was a player/manager if I recall......."

Ozzie

Rose batted about .230 in 1986 and hung it up as a player. Who knows for sure, but I'm hopeful the problems started after that, not that is it matters. Any hope he had for re-instatement died when he lied for two decades. Half the people that watched him play are dead, or sick of the drama and don't care anymore. If Pete ever goes to the HOF, I think it will be after he's dead and can't make them sorry for it.

I seem to remember that Rose agreed by signature to his ban for life from baseball. Are we now to dismiss that because he's finally (maybe) being forthcoming? This is a sad, sad story. I had the pleasure of watching him play when I was a boy. He was the epitome of an overachiever and great fun to watch. But the game is bigger and its integrity needs to be upheld. If they let him in, anything goes.

This talk of integrity in baseball makes me laugh. Baseball hasn't had any integrity since 1908. Betting, drug and steriod use, team inequality, the list goes on and on. Pete was made a scapegoat to give baseball the appearence of integrity. You put lipstick on a pig and you still got just a pig.

Agreed. However I was referring to Bud & MLB the organization. The Twins organization and players are a refreshing break from major league sports in general.

rose should be in. It's what he did on the field that counts. Bonds is cheater. He's in. Why- He hits the long ball and slugs better than Ruth. What rose did was after he played. His stats should speak for themeselves, and as far as I know, He wasn't roiding up like Bonds and many players are today. Betting on baseball after your done playing, big deal. Cheating and lying about your past and present while you still play, (BOnds Mcgwire etc) another deal. Yet Bonds is in, no doubt about it becasue he hits the long ball.

Rose played the game like a Saint held outta heaven- destined for hell,,, as a baseball player, and a honest one, he deserves the Hall.

What he did after words is like what MJ did after he retired from B-ball. Big deal. Both the best of their times.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      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. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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.    ; )
