      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 is this?

It seems like a lot of yards are doing that this season. Tons of my clients are having this same problem. Some odd clumps of grass are going to seed at lower than normal heights.

Just mow it off and it will go to normal in a few weeks. I really think this long cool wet spring is causing an extended peak growing season for turf.

To be on the safe side I would bring a sample of this grass into a turf specialists and have them determine what type of grass it is.

If it was your Kentucky Bluegrass going to seed it would not be in isolated clumps. The grass blades look thinner than the rest of the grass.

I had this show up in my yard after putting down bentgrass for a putting green and it has spreed to other areas. Late summer / fall theses grass clumps will have very shallow roots.

The only way to get ride of it will be to put round-up on the clumps to kill it totally and than I would reseed or sod the patches.

It could also be annual bluegrass which is bad as well.

Trust me, if it is not Kentucky Bluegrass and it is bentgrass you will want to take care of it before it spreads to far.

It does look like Poa Annua (Annual Bluegrass).

Easiest way to get rid of it is by digging it up (make sure you don't leave any seeds behind), and fill in the bare spots with some soil/seed mix.

Poa has a shallow root system and does not do well in hot, humid weather and may die out leaving patches of dead turf and will eventually fill back in when conditions are right for the seed to germinate. It also does not do well in severe winters. Alot of times, after snow melts and lawns have bare spots, it possibly is that the area was poa and it died off over winter.

If untreated, it can and will spread like crazy.

Speaking of Bent grass.This stuff is nasty and spreads like wildfire. The past 2 years i have had patches of Bent grass pop up in differnt areas of my lawn and neighbors. I must spread by going to seed? I am in the process of killing that with round up and then re-seeding as you are. I am not sure where this bent grass came from but i did put in a sprinkler system 3 years ago and had to re-seed where i dug. It may have been in the grass seed i put down. here is a picture of the bent grass i posted last year.

Bentgrass is spread by stolens (above ground horizontal roots) and can be killed with a broadleaf herbicide.

If you golf, it can be possible to pick up the seed on your shoes and after you walk in your lawn, it can start to grow eventually.

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
