      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 .

Ya know, every time it's pointed out how utterly stupid it is to plan an open-air stadium without a retractable roof, the daggers start flying... "What a wimp! Wear your Sorels! This is Minnesota!" or "We didn't need a roof on Metropolitan Stadium!" or "It costs too much! Why pay for a roof that we only need a few times a year?!" or "It ruins the aesthetics! It'll look like a cave!" Well, here we are, Game 4 is cancelled in the Windy City due to COLD! And without a roof for our opening series at home, recent weather meant that we could very well be sitting at 1-0 and looking for 3 make-up dates. (Hey, maybe that's the plan: "4 days of rain and Santana again.") Granted, I'm 3 hours north of the new site, but I'm looking out at 7 inches of snow from Tuesday that's not going away any time soon, and I'm just not looking forward to 3 years in the future and holding some hard-won tickets for some games on opening week that could very easily not be played. Fire away, but ya gotta agree with me that the present plan - without a retractable roof - is STUPID.

Maybe they could start the season with a nine game road trip to southern states or domed stadiums. smile.gif

It's all about TV money, that's why the games are scheduled at night. Best news is that Silva won't get a start.

You could put all the northern teams on the road for weeks at the beginning and end of the season. That has even out during the summer months when attendance is very high. The Braves and Marlins don't want all their home games during the slow attendance months. Bottom line is what Ron says, it's about the money.

Opening the season at home is an honor usually bestowed on the charter clubs. More often than not nowadays, that means first week of April night games in cold northern cities like New York, Detroit, Chicago, Boston, Baltimore, Cleveland, Philly... This year saw a little hiccup in that idea. Notice that the BoSox started the year in KC. And what did they say about the O's looking a little lost in MN?... first season opener on the road in 30 years or so? When was the last time you remember the season opening at the Dome? No, the answer is not allowing FL and CA teams to enjoy the special feeling of opening the season at home year after year. It's building stadia suited for the inevitable conditions that April and October bring. Polad needs to reach a little deeper under the couch cushions for another $70 million to make it happen.

Unfortunatly i think Silva will just start tomorrow, Santana on Sunday and use Ponson for the first game of the yankees series monday. If it was my choice i would use Santana the first game of the yankees for two reasons. 1) The Twins need a good start against the yanks. 2) Santana will get to pitch in the warm dome and not in the cold weather with an increased chance of getting hurt. Thats just what i think!

confused.gif You gonna send Cy-tana out there just once a week?!?!? Oh sure, it's unfortunate that he's not going to pitch in the NYY series, but beating the PaleHose is just as important, maybe moreso. (Johan would actually be pitching this afternoon's affair if he hadn't asked for the extra day of rest. I can imagine the folks at FOX are mad about that one: It was a no-brainer for them to assume that Santana would be pitching since it is the 6th day of the season for the Twins...)

Windy:

I can't believe that I am replying to one of your messages. (But then, it DOES look like he!! is freezing over this afternoon...)

Good for us all that the game is played, come snow or gale force winds off of the lake. I do love the game played in the open air... I spent a very enjoyable 3-game series outside at the Cell in a couple of years back watching the Twins sweep the WSux. I just think that the powers-that-be around here are going to regret not pushing funding for a retractable roof.

All right Schweady,

You....Me....and Rodney King.....

Can't we all just get along!

Am I that intimidating, why would you not respond to anything I say. Come on man, step up to the plate and get ya some! It's all good. You can take a punch as well as throw one, right? We are all just big ole goobers having some fun on the ole "puter" instead of in a sports bar.

smirk.gif Not so much 'intimidating' as 'predictable.' More time spent rolling one's eyes than ducking and covering. My comments had to do with outdoor baseball in Minnesota in April 2010. So don't hold your breath waiting for much more of an exchange. I enjoy the pure baseball fan side of things much more than any chest-pounding homer mentality. Like, I'm sure you're a Yankees fan for the next few days, just like I'm pulling for the A's to increase Contraras' 63.00 ERA tonight.

Geez, virgin, put it on simmer, eh. Windy can say what he wants, folks can make their own judgements. Other than a little over-eagerness to be right and the tendency to display dusty jewelry, he's fine. Some therapy for you: whenever the WSox are being drubbed, switch over to WGN and listen to their homer announcers try to find something to say...YES!

Geno,

I won't beat a dead horse, but Schweady, I have to use the same line I used on Fishy...Our trophy is shinier than yours, so nah nah nah nah, LOL

And guys, what say we all chip in $10 each to send LOTWS a dictionary or at least tell him how to activate spell check. This guys clock is wound just a little bit tight. I guess he has not had his gears lubricated for a while up there in Twinkieville!

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
