      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.

    • The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.    
    • I can recall,   farther back than you think, of running into one now and then and finding one inn a trap from time to time. And this was MORE than fifty years ago,  so they've been around a while. Maybe just an uptick in the population in southern MN.
    • For any of you that have ever had a desire to do any sledding in the Black Hills... This is definitely the year to do it. This is by far the most snow that I have seen out there. On most years, you can get lucky to ride either the Northern or Southern hills... This year both are awesome and the meadows are full! I am hoping to get out there once more before the end of the month.
    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home.
