      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 .

NBA Draft Lottery

I see the Wolves didn't get lucky again. Pick #7. I seen on ESPN last night had some dude has them taking the Horford kid from Florida. I think maybe we should move up a couple spots and take Conley Jr. from Ohio St. Although, Conley said he wants to keep playing with Oden. I don't know if the Blazers can make that happen. What do you think the Wolves would have to give up to move up to the #3-#5 spots? Do you think our #7 and Ricky Davis is enough? How about Kevin Garnett to the Sonics for their #2, a future first, and Ray Allen or Rashard Lewis? Then we would take Durant. I think next year when we are in the lottery we should send Felton Spencer to represent the Wolves. What do you guys think the wolves should do with their pick and offseason moves?

I'll assume you are joking. The Sonics entire front office staff would be fired if they made that deal.

Not joking. I am sick of seeing the wolves getting ripped off in trades. It is time to rip someone else off. KG has 1-2 great years left, Allen is on the downside. I don't know. I just want to see the wolves actually make a good deal. Wally trade was terrible, Marko trade was terrible. Maybe we should give the #7 to the clip joint and get that deal over with? We have so many bad contracts on this team I don't know where to start. We fired a coach that had a terrible roster and had a .500 record with it. Wittman is 20-25 games below and we keep him around. The only thing we have for us is KG and I think it is time to part ways.

I'm a huge KG fan but I am all for trading him if they can make a smart trade. But that's a huge if with the people running the Wolves. I don't think it makes much sense to trade up in the draft unless you can land the number 1 or 2 (not going to happen). The talent level between 3 and 7 is pretty much a wash. Any player that could go at 3 could potentially fall to 7.

On the mock drafts I've seen, they have Conley going as high as 3 or as low as 11. Corey Brewer as high as 4 or as low as 12. Brandan Wright, right now, is the most popular number 3 pick. But some have him falling as far as the Wolves at number 7. The point is, it's a total guessing game after the top 2 picks and I wouldn't trade up to any of the spots after that unless you have to give up basically nothing to get there.

I woldn't mind seeing Conley in a Wolves uniform. A backcourt of him and Foye would be pretty hard to stop. But they're already guard heavy. And unless they dump some of them for some serious upgrades elsewhere, that one wouldn't make much sense. Guys like Horford, Wright, Jianlian or Brewer get my vote with their current roster. But let's hope they make some moves to alter their roster in more ways than just the draft.

I am all for making a good trade or even ripping some one off but that means another team has to be as stupid as the timberwolves and I don't think thats possible. No one in their right mind would take the trade you mentioned.

Basically this is how it breaks down the way you wrote it...

Sonics get:

Kevin Garnett-maybe 2 good years left

Wolves get:

-#2 pick-Durant who is expected to be the nex KG

-a future first round pick

-Ray Alen- who has more years left then KG

You want the Sonics to give you all that for 2 years worth of KG?

You couldn't even make a straight up trade KG for the 2nd pick, Durant is expected to be a super star so why give him up for KG who will be gone in a few years? Durant will be alot cheaper for a few years also.

Does everyone feel that garnett only has a couple years left, because I don't. Garnett in my opinion will never be as good as the year before it but he will still be an all-star player in the next five years.

As for trading up in the draft I also think that is a bad decision because with mcchale it will just make the timberwolves worse.

I think we are heading in the right direction right now with our young players like Foye, Smith, Mccants, and our future 7th draft pick.

Lets see a show of hands of who trusts Mchale to make a decent trade?

You can't see me but my hands are firmly placed in my pockets right now.

* Never trust McHale when drafting

*Mike Conley will be off the board to Atlanta #3. They have passed on a serious need, point guard, for three consecutive years (Rondo, Chris Paul, and Darren Williams have all been taken and Paul and Williams look like annual allstars at this point in their careers).

*I would love to see Horford but there is some talk of getting a Wright (Either Brandon or Julian). There is also discussion of Yi falling to us or Corey Brewer. This is a pretty deep draft but only McHale could screw it up.

KG has 1-2 GREAT years left. I think 22-12-4.5 are great numbers for a guy that is 7'0. Only a handful of guys average a double-double. He will be an all-star the next several years. After the next couple of years his numbers will start to fade but will still average a double-double. That is why we should deal him now to get the most for him. My hands are also deep in my pockets. Mchale needs to get rid of some of the bad contracts.(Marko,Hassell,Blount,Davis,Hudson)

I know the Wolves are over the cap but are there any good free agents this year?

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      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.

      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.
