      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 .

Herb Carneal dies at 83

Recommended Posts

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Hall of Fame broadcaster Herb Carneal, whose smooth baritone narrated Minnesota Twins games for the past 45 seasons, died Sunday morning of congestive heart failure. He was 83.

Carneal was part of the club's radio play-by-play team for all but the first year of the team's existence in Minnesota

Definitely a sad day for the state of Minnesota. One of the most recognizable voices in all of sports. My condolences to the Carneal family. We will miss you Herb!!!!!

I believe it was about this time last year when Kirby Puckett passed away. It is going to be a sad opener without Carneal! First time in 45yrs without him frown.gif

Herb will always be THE voice of the Minnesota Twins for me. His voice always reminded me of listening to countless Twins games on 830 with my Grandpa who died about 20 years ago. Luckily my Grandpa got to see them win it all in '87 and even made it to game 7. One of the greatest thrills of his life I'm sure. Like Ray Christiansen, Herb wasn't on top of his game in the end, but for me the nostalgia made up for the slip ups, and missed calls. Twins on 1500 without Herb just won't be the same. Not that it will stop me from listening. RIP Herb you will be missed....TOUCH EM ALL!!!

When you talk about class and dedication the Twins have taken a hit in the last year. Bob and Herb were both and will be deeply miss. I am just sorry that my kids won't have the memories of the Twins that I have. How do you replace a guy like Herb? R.I.P. and if you have any connections up there with the big guy put in a good word for the Twins. Thanks For the memories!!!!!!!!!!

Just listened to a few Carneal mp3 files on the startribune site. Some great memories of a classic voice calling a Carew steal of home, Killer's 500th, Twins winning the AL pennant in '87... Good times...

Yes what a great voice with an even better man behind it. One of the nicest persons in the world, had an awesome life and an amazing career. Never again will there be an offical "voice of the minnesota twins". The radio broadcasts just wont be quite the same. At least we know hes up there hanging out with loved ones which im sure include Kirby and Bob. Touch em all kirby puckett touch em all. May they all RIP.

      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.

      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.
