      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 .

U.S. Open Champion?

Recommended Posts

I know it's a little early for this thread, but I was excited by the AP story that Phil will be playing this week and next.

Any predictions?

I got my money on the man who needs a good distraction in his life right now- Phil Mickelson.

Go lefty!

That would be cool to see for sure!

Looks like Tiger will obviously be contending again this year but you still need some breaks to win an Open!

Yeah, I can't imagine anyone but Tiger winning... If I was gonna pick a dark horse I think Sergio could do well. He's streaky but when he gets on a roll, look out! P.S. I really dislike him though..

Tiger is gonna stink it up. He's not even close to his old self. I'll be surprised if he makes the cut.

Kenny Perry or Boo Weekely. Both of them feed off of the crowd, both are rowdy, and we all remember what happened to Sergio last time he played there. I predict that Sergio gets his 17 count waggle back by Sunday........

Hmmm, I don't know about the field but I'll take Woods, Garcia and a player to be named later against the field.

Ok, I've decided. I'll take Tiger, and if I need them I'll go w/ Garcia and Furyk. Deal?

My two-man team for the work pool (no Tiger's allowed):

Furyk

Sabbatinni

I would love to see Lehman/ Lumpy make a run, but maybe they'll be nice and wait until I get to see it at Hazeltine...

I'm gonna pick Stricker. Looking for Allenby to be in the mix as well. Who I'd really like to see win... Angel Cabrera.

Poulter will be in it as well. Really would like to see Ernie play well. Not sure if he's washed up or not. Goosen could make a run.

Stricker wins it with a -3.

It would be nice to see Phil win with whats going on in his life but I wouldnt bet on it. I like Furyk and he's been playing real well this year.

But I do think Tiger is a solid bet. If his swing stays how it was in the last tourny it should be his to loose. He was second in fairways hit including all of them on sunday. and the fairways at Bethpage are wider...

A co-worker and friend of mine has tickets to tomorrows round. He's a big Phil fan and is all kinds of excited...

I agree. I'm a huge Tiger fan but wouldn't hurt my feelings if Phil won this one.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE RAIN IS WINNING RIGHT NOW. IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE PHIL FINALLY PULL IT OFF AT THE U.S OPEN. IT SOUNDS LIKE PAR IS GOING TO BE A GOOD SCORE THOUGH.

    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
    • I made some maybe 5 years ago and put one on a tree and the other at the end peak on a garage. The one on the garage had bats in the first year, the one on the tree finally had some in last year. 2 different designs so that may have made a difference. I made 1 for my daughter 3 years ago and put it on the garage and they used it the 2nd year. Mine are black- hers a dark brown. Don't put them in an area where bat dump can be a problem.  Good luck with them.
    •   Thanks. I get a kick out of people saying they need to brush in their blinds.  This was right in the middle of a corn field on it's highest spot, as visible as can be.
    •   Congrats Don, like the corn field picture.
    • Yep, excellent suggestions fellas!  If it's nice out this evening (supposed to be) we're going to go give it a try.  I'll bring lots of snacks, camera, binocs, and maybe even a tablet for her to play on.  
    • Not exactly bird related, but close enough. Do any of you have a bat house? I want to get one, but don’t exactly know where to put it. I see that DNR mounts them on long polls at boat launches and campgrounds, but I don’t really want to go that route. I’m wondering if a tree, or the side of my garage would suffice? Is there any benefits to painting them black? And how successful are they at attracting bats? How long did it take for them to show up? Amazon sells bat house attractant, but it’s pretty spendy. 
    • Maybe she needs more to do in the blind.   Camera and binoculars to watch the other critters running around.  Maybe some after dinner shorter evening hunts if you can set up where they like to roost and catch birds coming back.
    • I took this picture in March of 2017 near my parent's house.  I've never seen turkeys cross ice like that...  They were headed towards a farmer's silos, probably looking for an easy meal.
