      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 .

Truex Jr. to leave DEI in 2010 for Stewart/Haas??

Recommended Posts

I read on another site that Martin Truex Jr, is set to leave DEI next year for Stewart/Haas and to drive the #4 car.

Anyone else heard this? If this is so don't you think DEI is done unless Teresa pulls her head out of her butt and sells out to Jr??

I haven't heard that. but it wouldn't suprise me a bit. Truex would be an excellent addition to Stewart / Haas racing. I think he would do better than Ryan Newman.

If this is true, it is another very big hit to DEI. That could very well put an end to that organization. The only thing that might save it is their association with Ganassi Racing. I wouldn't be a bit suprised if that happens to see Dale Jr. not buy the company. In fact, in my opinion, I think he is less likely to buy it out, than to purchase it. He has JR Motorsports on the right track with it's association with Hendrick. I think he let's DEI fade into oblivion and continues on the career / buisness path he has set up. It'll be interesting to see.

I would also agree with you that if Truex Jr.leaves, DEI is on the way down and out! I am sure she is set and well off for life, but what the hell is she thinking? I would also guess that Dale Jr. has washed himself of anything to do with Teresa or DEI.

She was very good at marketing Dale Sr but when it comes to the every day operations of running a race team, she does not do well.

I'll bet Sr could roll over in his grave with Jr out and the rest going down hill fast. I doubt he ever thought that Jr would be gone and the team sliding fast.

Great job Theresa

Ya I wasnt a 3 car fan but to see an empire like that fall to way side is a shame I believe he is one of the reasons

nascar grew the way it did and peaked around his time and has been going backwards ever since

no real stands outs maybe the kid (18) but time will tell on him Be awhile before he sells as much mercandise as tthe ole man did

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required.
