      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 .

Hey Geno,

It's looking like May will be Silver and Black once again. Lots riding on this weekend. Care to make a side bet, maybe to cover your upcoming loss??? Hee Hee

Let's say an additional one week avatar bet if either team sweeps, but you have to agree to it at The Cell as well as Wiggly Field! Bet???

Hey Geno,

Look's like "Flukie" did it again. 3-2 record, 3.18 ERA, compared to the great YO-Han, 4-4 record 3.26 ERA. I don't know Geno. Are you still going with the Fluke label???

Hey Geno,

You mentioned you wanted Aardsma back, you can have him after the way he tossed yesterday but you have to keep Cotts with him and let him keep tossing those beachballs up to my beloved Pale Hose. I guess AJ got back for the grand salami that D Lee hit.

Don't mean to get in the middle of the whole "South-Side, North-Side" battle here, (BTW-North Side Rules) but Johans team can't score him any runs.

Where's Geno? I was looking forward to a little Monday morning civil war smack talk. Good series guys. Gotta love Wrigley, where pitchers are required to check their ERA at the door.

Spent the weekend away at my sis' place chasing pannies and cats and didn't get to see any of the series.....but I did hear something about how on Sunday the WSox were gonna try to make the Cubs keep their brooms in the closet?????

If only the Cubbies could have swept, I would have gladly taken a little side-action Windy. (I'll trade you Wuertz for Aardsma and gladly keep Cotts over Lohman).

Well Geno, my friend,

Here sits ole Windy on his 48th birthday and all the presents have been opened...except 1. As I look at my trusty Chicago Tribune (the only conservative paper in The Windy) and I glance at the sports page, I see one thing....

WE SUCK LESS THAN YOU!! Pay up old man, let's see that shiny black and silver Championship ring for the next week!!!

Blah Ha Ha Ha

I don't know there Windy. If the Sox lose tonight, then I believe both teams would have won the same number of games in May so i call it a tie then, don'tcha think? And by virtue of the 2 out of 3 the Cubbies took from the WSox, I would get the tiebreaker, no?

Riddle me this oh wise one. How do you consider a team that is .500 to be equal to one that is 7 games under. Stop sippin your Cubbie Kool-Aid from your Ron Santo mug and pay up old man, before I send Tony Soprano up to Elmhurst to "enlighten" you...LOL!

PS Geno,

Remember this is a cumulative bet as stated in the original proposition. It is not a month to month deal. Sox have a better record in April, you pay. Sox still have a better record in May, you pay. Your boys have to catch mine and pass them for me to pay. Let's see that shiny black and silver flying over Elmhurst!!!

Windy,

Talk about sippin' cool-aid? Like the Twin fans have asked, "what are you smokin'"?

I really do not remember it being a cumulative bet. That wouldn't make sense because if one team got a big lead to start the season the other would never catch them and would lose every month then thereby taking the fun out of it. Point me to chapter and verse of our bet please....otherwise, I may choose to welch no matter who you send to enlighten me.

Geno,

Care to double the bet if I have to wade thru all the old posts then I should be rewarded for my effort. It was a cumulative bet and I was very specific about it. What the heck are you doing complaining about paying off the bet, the last time you did your Cubbies went on a streak didn't they? .490 vs .430....PAY THE FIDDLER Geno!

OK Geno,

Please refer the thread named What A Start to The Season that was created by none other than Gene Gene The Welching Machine (don't make me put that moniker on your permanent record Geno)

Pay Up!

I am not gonna welch - my mistake for accepting.

So Cubs gotta make up 6 games in 30 days?

Now you see why I never should have accepted "cumulative".

Lucky for me it is not for ca$h.

It's all good, Geno. You are indeed a man of your word. Misguided with your love of the Cubbies, but a man of your word. Thanks for the belated birthday present.LOL

Sorry Geno,

Short business trip, just got back in town tonight. I guess I missed my chance at some prime fodder, eh? I think Lou is going to be Lou and the melt down was inevitable, however, the Barrett and Zam-Brain-NO situation is another thing. I think one of these guys will be gone after next year and I would guess that it would be the Brain-Less Wonder Carlos. What a piece of work, he has to be one of the biggest tools in the shed IMHO! It was kind of funny though. Both teams seem to be wading in mediocrity this year. We shall see how this month ends, but you might have a shot at actually winning a month, who knows. I have no faith in my beloved this season, they seem to be going thru the motions. I guess we can still say, there is a long way to go or we can use the line the Cubbies are famous for....WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR!

What? No answer to my question?

Not much to write about for sure, including the Twin fans. At least the Cubs are in a weak div so I don't have to resort to your "wait till next year" yet. But being out 9, I understand why you feel that way.

I leave tonight for Cass and have a bet with a Cardinal fan that the Cubs would be ahead of them on Mon the 11th. Looks like it is gonna be close.

So are you saying you would rather be the strongest of the weak or the weakest of the strong? Not sure which is better. You better watch your avatar betting there Geno, you may be writing checks you can't cash!

If the Cubs take the CitySeries at the Cell, you might be writing the check this month.

Oh Geno,

You may have spoken too soon! Here you are feeling all friskie about your Cubbies and they have exactly the same number of losses as my beloved Pale Hose and you are about to lose D Lee for being an (Contact Us Please) for a few games, what kind of a girly punch was that from ole Derrick?

The only thing they have going for them is having played 3 extra games. There are a bunch of games left in June and the real series starts Friday. You may have opened the pie hole just a tad early there old boy! LOL

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?
    • timjones
      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.
    • PRO-V
      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
    • Finnish Flash
      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.   
    • cookie129
      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
