      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 .

Baseball power rankings

Recommended Posts

Those are lovely, but there is no way I am ready to say that Cleveland is the second best team in baseball.

I'm sorry, but until they go out and prove it, they are still a 4th place team in my eyes.

Also, there is no way that the Tigers should be picked that low. They have the best rotation in the major leagues along with one of the top bullpens and a lineup with lots of pop.

I can definitely see them winning our division this year.

Hope they are right. I'm surprised the Twins are that high with an unproven rotation. Definitely agree the Tigers should be higher than sixth.

in sports illustrated the twins are ranked 17th confused.gif??? cleveland 7th, detroit 8th, and CWS 12th. Unfortunatly i would agree with sports illustrated. To many question marks with the twins.

I too saw the SI article and it shows how crazy competitive our division is. I don't really see Cleveland finishing first, though they should be improved. And I doubt the Twins will drop from 1st to 4th.

Hitting will not be a problem, nor will relief. Starting pitching is what they are basing it on. I'm concerned too, but we still did well at the end of last year. The only difference is that Radke is not on the team, which does sting quite a bit. I think Garza will rejoin the team after the first 5-6 weeks and the pitching will improve. My big question mark is whether Boof can pick up where he left off last year and continue to improve.

the AL central again is the toughest division, but there is no way that cleveland is number 2. they may finish 3rd or 4th in there division.

Thanks Masher,

It's great to be back, just like the Swallows to Capistrano or something like that, anywho, I think everybody on this site will have to agree that the AL Central is the premier division bar none no matter who comes out of it. I like my Hose of course but I think the wild card comes out of the Central also, unless of course the four teams beat each others brains out during the course of 162 games and the Yanks or BoSox eek out the wild card. Let the games begin, of course after the first game. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtin he is the great and powerful Jose Contreras (with a 63 ERA, Dhooah! Pardon my Homer Simpson-ism there).

No need to warn the Twins faithful since there's plenty of room in line as there won't be any WSox fans fighting for tix!

What would you rather see? Your team shutting down the 27th team or giving up 10 a game to #2?

I don't know if I am going out looking for the WS ducats yet, but it would be better than wondering if the June tickets are going to be worth anything after the first series.

      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.

      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.
    • KidMoe
      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!

      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff

      First fisherman seen trying their luck today out from McKinley park access and Stuntz Bay access.

      Definitely not surprised with this change. One might as well license the wheel house anyway.  Keeping it legally “occupied” is a pain just to avoid buying the license.

      A public meeting to discuss a draft transition plan for Hill Annex Mine State Park will take place Thursday, Nov. 30, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Calumet City Hall, 932 Gary St., Calumet. Legislation in 2017 guided five local partners (DNR, Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board, Itasca County, City of Calumet and the Western Mesabi Mine Planning Board) to work on an alternate operating model for local management and operation of the Hill Annex Mine. The work group has concluded that operation of the site as a park under any jurisdiction is extremely unlikely and is proposing a feasibility study to explore other local economic development opportunities that preserve the history of Hill Annex Mine, promote existing amenities along the Mesabi Trail, and better connect the cities of Calumet and Marble. At the public meeting, the work group will hold a facilitated discussion to review feedback on the draft project report. The report will be submitted to the 2018 Legislature. Interested members of the public are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
