      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 .

Yup, the sox are the best 500 team in baseball right now. Best of the worst, and worst of the best, something to hang your hat on.

Bottom,

Who put a quarter in your slot? LOL. This was a bet between Geno and me and I have to crow about it because I know it is killing him to look at that ring with his name on it and I know he would be doing the same....maybe more if the Cubbies managed to win a few.

sorry windy. I guess I picked the wrong thread to bash. I'll copy and paste my reponse for later use when the twins-white sox play (that's assuming they even manage to steal a game from the twins).

Hang on a sec... a guy who follows a team that is 12-11 is making a guy who follows a team that is 10-14 display a distorted image of a dusty piece of jewelry celebrating something that happened two years ago? Uh, for this month's bet, shouldn't the winner's team at least be better than 4th in their division? smirk.gif

It's just that Windy has a distorted sense of loyalty, that's all.

Yap Yap Yap,

But who is posting who'se avatar???

I don't see any Cubbie blue on this poster's avatar.

Dang it, I should have gotten in on this bet. I could use an avatar. And it would be so fun picking one myself...and one for each of you!

OK Windy, here is my take on things:

That is a really lucky avatar - it brings such luck to your Sox - bad luck. I like it.

Cubs have just as many wins as the WSox now-nana nana na nah.

C'mon avatar --- do your thing!

Geno,

I love a little hope in your voice, it will be all the sweeter when it is crushed at the end of May. My pale hose are the worst hitting team in baseball right now, the highest average is about .258 (Erstadt), Thome and Pods are on the DL and they are still hovering at .500 and only a few games out of first. On the other hand, your guys are playing out of their minds, Lee is leading both leagues in hitting, Rich Hill is way out over his skis and you are still near the bottom of your division. You know the warm winds of May will blow in and the Pale Hose bats will come alive but your guys will still have the curse hanging over their heads...after all...THEY ARE THE CUBS!!! LOL Talk to me at the end of May.

PS: Here's something that will drive you nuts. My uncle designs golf clubs for a living and he is best friends with Ernie Banks. They go golfing together all the time when Ernie comes in from California. He calls my aunt and uncle all the time and talks to them for hours. He was in town earlier this month and I had him sign a jersey and a bat that our company is raffling off at a charity auction. He tossed in an autographed baseball for me and it is sitting in my collection next to my baseballs and photos of Bill Melton who I rode with in our Little League parade and Carlton Fisk that I met during my college career.

AJ had a big ol' 'shoe up his butt yesterday.

Maybe my avatar isn't causing bad luck for the WSox after all. One more day and off it comes.

PS Can we keep the Nationals at Wrigley a little longer?

All you can do now Windy is make me post an avatar, but if you want to raise the stakes........

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.
    • delcecchi
      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.
    • Wakemup
      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
    • leech~~
      Plus+1  The size seems to drop off late in the year. Last year bait shops I went to were selling Large as Jumbos and small as large!
    • RuddyDuck
      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.
    • gimruis
      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.
    • BringAnExtension
      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!
