      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 .

Coin Flips are dead!

Recommended Posts

Congrats to MLB for changing the coin flip rule that cost the Twins the division title last year. I know it's older news but I wanted to bring it up again in-case anybody was wondering or missed it earlier!

I know it's a year late but at least from here on out no team will be screwed when it comes to winning the division fairly like the Twins were last year!

Tie breakers are in coin flips are DEAD!

Jerome Bettis and Twins fans everywhere will all agree- coin flips belong on elementary school playgrounds, not in Major sporting events with millions of dollars on the line

Windy is going into hiding right now. They suffered a big loss yesterday. Fading fast, but we will need there help in a few games coming up. I will be cheering for them against Detroit.

Oh thats right they have Peavy who is going to save them. NOT

Bench? I could swear he pitched today and got the win. Maybe I was watching another Jake Peavey. Who knows.

And dude, why would the coin flip get ME going? We were the ones who WON the flip and WON the game and WON the DIVISION. Twinks fans should be the ones that get going. We got ours, you gonna get yours? And say good bye to the biggest home field advantage in all of baseball. Did you realize that during the two World Series that the Twinks won (of course my beloved Pale Hose have THREE) that the Twinks did not win ONE away game? That about says it all. You had better make the playoffs this year cause I got a feeling come next year you will be a very average team.....AT BEST!

That is all we are this year, and last year, and the year before. But we have beat the White Sox most of them years!

Have they settled the play-off issue at the Dome yet? Last I heard both MLB and the NFL claim they have the Monday night venue locked up. I just can't see moving the Vikings vs Packers game to Sconie if the Twins are in a play-off at home...

What say you?

It would be for a tie breaker game only, we would need to finish tied with Detroit, and need to play a tie breaker game like last year in Chicago. Chances are slim it would happen, it is just the media getting ahead of itself, and wanting something to talk about.

I think they would have to compromise something, because the NFL doesn't want to lose the Monday night game in MN with Favre.

Also I have tickets to both the Packers/Vikings games, and I wont be able to go Monday night to GB on the 5th, so it wont work wink

Sounds the Twins have the stadium if needed and the Vikes/ Packers game will switch to Lamby.

Good news is I can make that date 4Wand so your tickets won't go to waste!...LOL

    • I have a Minnkota 12V bow mount trolling motor but need a foot pedal as mine isn't reliable and they discontinued the product.  The connection of the cord is a little over an inch and oval in shape.  Thank you!
    • The wife and I have different tastes so I usually use an off the shelf prime rib rub and finish up with coarse ground salt and pepper. There are lots of great rub recipes out on the net depending on your taste and company
    • Good catch of the actions and reactions of the walleyes down there.
    • Nice catch for your little boy!
    • Drumming at night.  Did you go after them with you burlap bag and flashlight? 
    • The more i research there seems to be a consensus that there is not a reasonably priced inline reel on the market worth the price tag.  Along those lines i dont recall too many of the guys making a living in the industry using them, even though a few promote them.  Think mr genz, he has his name on an inline but i dont recall any youtube footage of him using one.  
    • I was sleeping in the topper of my truck two weeks ago and it was *thump....... thump........thumpity thumpity* all night long.  Maybe it's the yearlings just figuring stuff out and finding themselves? Young males thinking they are all that?
    • This looks promising.  Usually have the little guys but a little more age in these two. 
    • I’ve heard drumming deep into the summer when I was out trout fishing. I thought that was a little odd. It’s one of the nicest sounds to come out of the woods though, so if they do it year round, I’ll take it!
    • Fall colors are now peaking in far northwestern Wisconsin and throughout the central part of the state including the Door County area, according to the Department of Tourism's Fall Color Report. Fall colors are now past peak in about a dozen north central counties and leaves are dropping rapidlyFall colors are now peaking in Door County. Photo from Oct. 19 from atop "Old Baldy" sand dune at Whtiefish Dunes State Park.Photo Credit: DNRMuch needed rain in the last week finally spurred on the fall Lake Michigan tributary salmon runs. The chinook spawn is going strong, with a variety of baits and methods seeing success. The chinook spawn is in full swing along Door County with salmon spotted in most marinas and in many area creeks. In the Kewaunee harbor, salmon can be seen jumping regularly and have been stacking up in corners in force and numbers, and anglers are having success with both spoons and crankbaits. Fish have been so thick at times that anglers have foul-hooked more than they have had strike. The salmon spawn is also in full force in the East and West Twin, Manitowoc, Branch and Ahnapee rivers. Chinook salmon are the most common catch but a few coho are also being caught. In southern tributaries, those fishing the Sheboygan River reported most of the success from chinook and coho salmon along with a few brown trout. At Sauk Creek a few chinook were landed on flies and spoons. On the Root River were chinook the majority of anglers targeting and seeing success upstream of the steelhead facility and fishing with egg flies. .
