      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 .

Hi Ho Silva and a Cuddyer Brain Fart !

Recommended Posts

Windy City Walleye Hunter

Your favorite whipping boy did OK today in my book. Thanks to Cuddyer for that hilarios gaff on third base. I don't know if anybody picked up on it but as Cuddyer was crossing the plate, thinking that there were two outs, did you notice AJ start walking to his dugout? He didn't want to tip Cuddyer to the fact that there was only one out and it worked as Cuddyer didn't realize his goof until it was too late. And how bout Javy with 7 strong innings???

So did Reyes give up more runs today than all of last year?

Looks like the man with one leg shorter than the other has been hitting the buffet line rather than the weight room in the off season.

Then Big Bad Bobby Jenks finishes things off against the heart of the Twinks line-up.

GOOSE EGGS!!!

Let the games begin! 1-Love Pale Hose.

You give AJ to much credit , he probably thought the same as Cuddy . Twins played poorly today and that gave the W-Sox a win . Shouldn't be enough to get the trash talk started , should it ?

Unfortunately I can back you up on Reyes. My less than ideal seats at the dome had me ten feet from Reyes as he warmed up in the pen. He's definitely been getting a second helping of taters. Neshek looked like the bat boy standing near him. smile.gif

I love Cuddy....but to say AJ was "decoying" him for the out is rediculous. AJ is as guilty as Cuddy!

I'll have to eat my words as I didnt think Silva could pitch a better game anymore. Chomp, Chomp. Crow never did taste well.

As far as AJ goes, he would like us to believe he knew there was only one out. Chicago can still have him.

Silvas performance was nice but I am not anywhere near ready to say he is "back". I was surprised more than encouraged. Lets see what his stats are by mid-May.. Jury is still out on this guy, IMO.

I am a die-hard Twins fan...but lets not get too excited about his performance today. He flirted with danger quite a bit. I think the weather hurt the hitters more than the pitchers and that made Silva look OK. I hope I am wrong, but I doubt that Silva will make it to Memorial Day as a Twins big league starter..

Cuddy will only amke that mistake once this year so I am glad it happened early in the year..

Every decent game Silva pitches gives the Twins time to prepare a younger pitcher. All Silva has to do is keep the Twins in the game so the offense can get it done. He is the #5 pitcher in my mind, and giving you a chance is all you usually get from the #5. Almost all teams have a Silva in their rotation.

"No game break down from Windy City Walleye Guy Today?"

I got him covered on the wrap today. The AL MVP drives in the batting champ. Yohaaaaaaaaan continues to own the Sox. They go about two hours without a hit. Then AJ chokes, game over. Did I miss anything Windy? grin.gif

Windy probably won't comment, he only likes to spout off when his teams are winning; he gets pretty quiet when they lose.

Sorry for the delay in posting. I had something to do today. Hosting the entire family for Easter din din. I think you guys did miss one thing, our rookie was every bit as good as YO-Han today. One bad pitch to Morneau that I would expect a MVP to hit and that was the difference. I'll take that performance from our 5th starter against the Twinks ace every day and twice on Sunday. We sent up our 4th and 5th starters while you trotted out your 1 and 2 (maybe 3). The way I sees it is that we aced you guys 3-0 and you beat us 3-1 seems like we are up a run??? Happy Easter to all you FM'ers we didn't lay any "Easter Eggs" but the Twinks did yesterday, OOOOOOOHHH Yea!

Nice spin. Let me try. The Sox were one swing away from being shut out today. Nobody pitches every bit as good as YO. Danks did pitch very well though. I'll give you that Windy.

Windy Silva is far from our 2 or 3rd starter, he is more like our 5th starter. Every game he pitches for the next month or so is an audition for him. If he starts to struggle they will yank him and bring up one of the young guns. That being said your young guy did pitch really well with the exception of the 4th inning. Also when Crain comes in I have come to expect him to give up at least one long ball, he go right after the hitters and that is bound to happen when you throw as many fastballs as he does.

Windy,

#2 - Boof

#3 - Ortiz

#4/#5 are pretty interchangable between Silva and Ponson. Granted Silva pitched great on Saturday, but I'm not convinced its the Silva we will continue to see. It would not surprise me to see both Silva and Ponson out of the rotation come second half of the season.

Heck if Ponson doesn't show any better than last night he won't make it to the All-Star break.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      That the best sounding plan yet!! same to you and your party.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.
    • eyeguy 54
      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
    • ANYFISH2
      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
