      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 .

i heard rick sutcliff on kfan today say he thinks cuddy will be an all star this year blush.gif as much as i would like to see this it will be very hard to down right impossible for him to go.he'll never get voted in as we all know it is a popularity contest and unless gardy is the manager he most likly wont be added.to bad he is just another example of a good player thats just not a superstar.might not be all bad though if he were to make it his price would just go up grin.gif

Let's see...right fielder Cuddyer or Guerrero? Lot's of better right fielders out there...Sheffield, if he's playing right for Detroit...is another. Fat chance for ol Cuddy I think. He did lead the AL with outfield assists last year I believe but, he's average defensively and offensively otherwise.

Going to be very hard to get votes. He is a decent OF with a very good arm and good batting numbers. But you need the glove and some web jems out there..

As long as somebody in the dugout reminds him how many outs there are, he should be fine! LOL

If I remember correctly, all three outfield positions get lumped into one. So he's not just competing against right fielders. Maybe Morneau will pull a hammy, Santana will pitch the day before the break, Nathan will be too tired after saving 70 games, Mauer will catch a cold, and Hunter will stub his big toe. The Twins still have to have one represenative at the game.

You are correct - which makes it impossible for him unless he puts up some serious offensive numbers!!!!

Cuddy would likely have to have close to MVP numbers for this season to be an All-Star next season, that's just the way it works with small market teams. I don't necessarily agree with it, but I still think it's true. Do I think he should be an All-Star this year? If he improves upon last years numbers, sure, if not, no, but he's very good.

Incidentally after some of the ridiculous things Rick Suttcliffe (sp) said in the Monday night game this week I now have to question things he says while broadcasting for other teams. Case in point, paraphrases of his Eastern media clouded bunk:

1)You know if Jeter wins the battle title last year he makes up the 15 votes to pass Mourneau.

2)Joe Mauer winning the batting title on the last day of the season gave him the MVP. (He didn't win it on the last day, he could have sat out & won it, he was already leading. He didn't sit out & went & got two more hits to prove he deserved it!)

3)How much higher could have Jeter's average been if he wasn't doing all the little things to get runners over batting in the two hole? (What, Mauer doesn't do those things in the three hole? Mauer attempted to bunt the runner over twice last night alone (4/11)! What about the virtual All-Star lineup batting all around Jeter, so they can't pitch around him?)

Rick was rickdiculous!

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
