      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 .

what do you guys think of this? everyone says with his height that he will be forced out of the catcher pos. sooner b4 later. redmond is a slightly above avg. defensive catcher, but i like having his bat in the lineup all of a sudden. i say keep heintz up, dh mauer a while or let joe-ma play C on redmonds days off or something like that. i'd like to keep him healthy for as long as possible.

Mauer would make a great DH, but he's too young to have him do that yet, would ruin his self esteem. I think a perfect DH would be a twilight NL player like Griffey, Bonds and a couple years ago- McGwire. DHing would prolong a career 5 years for any of these above named players. Interestingly, I don't know if any of you guys caught that FSN special about Joe- he batted over .700 and only struck out once in High School. AMAZING. PS- how about an OF position? I think LF is a sore spot for the Twins

I seen that fsn when he struck out he was depressed about it. It was the first time he had done that

I'm sure he could adapt to almost any position.

Play Joe in Left Field.

Redmond is too old to last behind the plate all year...he would have to be rotated frequently.

I was at the game he struck out. State Tourney against Elk River. Paul Feiner struck him out. I went to high school with Paul's brother Kyle and that is all we talked about for a week. Oh yeah, Mauer took him deep opposite field the at bat before.

Mauer is a great defensive catcher. He is only what 24,25 or 26. I know he has been injured often but I think we should keep him there awhile. Joe is what 6'5, I think he can last till his thirties playing catcher. I know Pudge is alot shorter but look at him still squattin especially after all those years in Texas when the heat was 95+. I think we should keep Joe at catcher for awhile.

I'm sure he would do fine at 3rd, but I think he would great in right field. Typically, you put your best arm in right, and worst in left, then your best athelete in center. I just don't think catcher is the long-term solution for Mauer. We need to keep the best hitter in the game healthy year-round, having a player like Mauer hurt or taking a day off to rest from catching is not worth it. He needs to play EVERY game with a swing like that!

Not taking anything away from Mauer. But only Cuddy's gun belongs in right.

If Joe don't stop growing he is going to be a Point Guard.

Nice quote... They say he has grown 2 inches since coming to the majors shocked.gif He is too tall to catch for too long, I agree with the left field take.

Remember one thing- Pudge never played tackle football from being a little boy on up to senior year of high school. Joes body has taken some abuse over his lifetime, if he isn't careful, his career might be over before 30

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....

      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
