      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 .

Out doors Baseball

Wouldn't baseball outside be fun tonight? 24 degrees and a 30 mph wind. I think I'll stay home and watch it on the tube.

Two months of the season are definitely not going to be good for MN baseball outdoors. But after my very first trip to the Dome for game 1 and 2, you really do need a new stadium. I'm sure the dome probably has memories for you guys, but the improvement potential of a new park is huge. Even a small park like Cincy GABP offers advantages you won't believe if you haven't been to a modern one.

isnt the new stadium supposed to have a retractable roof? so it would be the best of both worlds? besides that this is minnesota give it five minutes and the weather will be different.

"isnt the new stadium supposed to have a retractable roof?"

I haven't heard that, but am hopeful that is the plan in the end.

No roof. It would cost something like $70 million more to add a retractable roof.

After they leave the dome I think the only Twins games I'll go to will be in Miller Park.

I'm too young but my great uncle talks about how great the "Old Met" stadium was. They would dress warm and head out to the game. I personally think it's going to be a lot of fun going to an outdoor stadium. So what if you have to get your winter gear on for few games, it will be a game you will not forget laugh.gif. Were minnesotan's and can handle a little chilly weather!

The bad part of not having a roof is for the people who have to travel from out of state. Many come to the Twins games for a weekend series and for a shopping trip. Have to keep mom happy too! I can remember going to the Met back in the mid 60's for a Yankee series and it rained both days. Pretty sad for a young kid who only had the opportunity to go to a couple of games a year. I really enjoyed the outdoor baseball much more than the dome though.

I think that if teams in Detroit, Chicago, New York and Milwaukee can handle a little cold weather and potential rain outs I think we can as well.

every team has people coming from long distances to catch the game. Yeah its too bad if the game gets called off becuase of rain but its all part of the game. Every team deals with it.

Ahhhh the wussification of America continues, so it's a tad chilly for watching a baseball game. Layer-up and throw on the Sorels. Time to man-up you Nancy boys. grin.gif

I'm all aboot putting on the carharts and watching b-ball.

The wussy umps need to play through the rain and cold instead of calling the game, however.

We did a Wrigley weekend many years ago. The crowd was nearly naked one day but the wind shifted off Lake Michigan and it was pretty miserable.

You describe yesterday at the Tiger/Toronto game in a nutshell. Barely thirty degrees, wind, and snow. Tigers had a 10-2 lead, and squeeked out a 10-9 win after some wind caused misplays of a couple fly balls. Why not open in Southern cities? But, the other side of the coin, Monday, for opening day, the weather was sixty degrees and sunny. Go figure. World Series games were played in similar conditions last year.

I think outside baseball games in MN this time of the year is too early. This kind of weather is football weather. Baseball is supposed to be warm and enjoyable. No shivering and sniffling. A rectractable roof would be awesome but here comes the money thing again. I wouldn't mind building another dome like thing again but a outdoor stadium, how many fans would you get on crappy days?

I go to several games each year, and the games I goto are when its cold and crappy outside, and I cant go fishing. I would like a roofed stadium, with heat! Call me a sissy, but when Im scrunched into a seat and cant move around much, I get cold! Now on the other hand , watching a game when its 100 degrees and sunny isnt any fun either! Then I want air! I live an hour or so away, it would be a waist of my time to drive there pay for parking and tix on a questionable rainy day! Put a retractable roof on it! It would be awsome sitting in the sun on a 60-70 degree day watching baseball, but most of you live in mn, how often do we get them days! I would forsee myself going to less games in the new stadium!

At the risk of being called a Wuss smile.gif ...........

You really need to get the big picture. Lets take two months of season and peel off 10,000 fans per game when the weather is crappy. Let's see, who should we not sign to make up for our loss of revenue? Think that can't happen? Go 70-92 one year and see what happens to attendance when it is cold out.

I just drove 900 miles since Sunday (did I mention gas was $2.55 gallon) to watch a couple Twins games so please don't call me undedicated. One of the games would likely have been called off.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?
