      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 .

Speaking of the Chicago, were they even represented in the All Star game. I never heard anything about them contributing.

G.C.

Nice try w/ the cutdown garyc but having a low scoring 15 innings means not many position players did contribute.

Now if you're asking about P, then, yes, Chicago Cubs(Zambrano, Marmol, and Dempster with shutdown performances) did contribute.

Unfortunately their teammates could not.

Yeah, and didn't kosuke fukadome have like 9 strikeouts in the all star game? Probably set some sort of record...

Look at your clock, its about time for the cubbies to start choking on the dog!

I don't think anybody (him or Soriano) is worth what they are getting paid either, but they have been good additions to the Cubs.

Let me go check the standings now. Nyuk, nyuk.

At least the real games are back...4 days is too long. And the AllStar game and home run derby do not count as baseball. laugh

...and I sure hope every Twins "fan" stayed with the game tonight. Hey, call the kids in and make 'em watch while you're at it. Being blown out in the opening game of a series at the Stadium is never any fun, but there's character to be built, doggoneit!

i watched that drubbing...and stayed with it. At least when they get down so big so early...you don't have to get frustrated later in the night.

Cubs beginning their late season skid earlier than usual?

Gather the children 'round the tube again tonight. Maybe dress them up in their favorite Twins togs... This is how you raise hardcore Twins fans.

At least last night we had a White Sux loss...

Well, no more Frank Sinatra for another year... Classy, having Nathan pitch the 8th. Seems like the only thing Gardy has put any thought into lately, however.

It does appear they need lots of bp.

They just stink it up on the road.

considering we had the best record in the division on the road the first half of the season we'll have to disagree on that one Geno!

Gardy couldn't be doing a better coaching job this year and could very well be the Manager of the year in MLB.

Pier,

You mis-read my vague post.

I was talking about the Cubs in reference to the accusation they are beginning to swoon. They are terrible on the road this year and are indeed kind of in a slump. 7-8 All-Stars? Harumph!

Pass the Kool-Aid, Pier...

I know I couldn't do the job, that's not it. I just think Gardy just looks good when the boys are hittin' and when they're throwin' the ball good. Some of the hands-off stuff... lettin' it ride... that might be upper management, I dunno. Just seems like there's more to the job than sayin' that everybone's workin' their tails off and letting the chips fall. It took a public outcry to move No-Go down in the order. What will it take for him to see that when Red Dog is in for Mauer (much too often, by the way) that he doesn't necessarily need to bat him in the 3-hole? (Did I use enough Gardyisms?) wink

Public outcry had nothing to do with Gomez being moved. Where would you hit Redmond? .288 isn't bad for a backup and you would mess up the whole lineup and have everyone batting in an unfamiliar postion? He usually gives the Twins good ab's. I agree with Pier. If the Rays don't win the east, Gardy should be amongst the leaders in Manager of the Year votes in spite of what people on this site think.

Doh. Like I think they listen to the average fan... It's just that everybody and his aunt was saying it weeks before it was done. Maybe I'm just torqued because we use that backup way too often. OPS: Mauer-.871, Red-.663.

    • The gobbler came in and beat the jake down I shot him and five seconds later the hen decoy fell over from not being able to stake it down in the frozen ground.
    • I don't have near the birds featherslayer has. My groups were one gobbler with three or four  hens. There was zero gobbling on the roost both mornings. When they hit the ground there was a lot of gobbling and strutting for a couple of hours. The one I shot this morning answered my calls a  couple of times but was out of sight the whole while. He stopped gobbling for a hour and a half when suddenly there was a gobble and close. I called a little bit and he popped out of the trees about eighty yards away and stood there in full strut and just checked things out. Did some soft calling and here he came in full strut and went right to my jake decoy and gave him a beat down. That was all it wrote for him. Classic case of him losing his hens and coming to check out that hen he had answered after flydown. This is a little area I'm hunting and I had let a jake go last year and I'm hoping this was him. Good luck to the rest of our teammates.
    • On my first sit right now. 40 birds in the field, at least 5 shooters, 2 of those are very nice. Think they have to come by me to roost. Fingers crossed.
    • Good job buddy. Glad to see you wiped that skunk off the new bow.
    • Way to close the deal guys!
    • I would always use tree tubes for any hardwoods. If it's small enough to need a tube for protection from deer, rabbits, other... than use the tube. If your putting in the time and money to plant them, you might as well protect them.    Lots of them are on the market. I have only used one type of tube myself. Tubex- combitudes (spelling?). If you are worried about deer you should get the 5 foot tubes. Since that is about the upper limit of their browsing heights. I've used the fiberglass green stakes from L & M instead of buying the stakes from tree tubes suppliers. The only problems i have had so far is a curious bear, who wanted to chew a few tubes.    The other thing you should think about talking to your local DNR forester. They can help you to make sure you are planting trees that are correct for your soils. And may be able to help financially to purchase tubes. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/cfm-map.html    Hope this helps, 
    • Thanks. Even got the itch to take a spin after seeing other bikes out today. Just a short ride down to the car wash to knock the dust off. Should have worn gloves though as it was a little nippy on the fingers. Maybe Ill run my Super Glide down there tomorrow
    • Birds in my area are too responsive, and yes i had 2 big fellas come in to my 1 tom and 2 hen set up. Accually i had the whole flock coming in and it was load with the hens and all the toms. One thing i fogured out is if there is alot of birds dont be soft calling. I tried to top the old hen and thats what pulled them my way. Good luck to my team and hopfully everybody could have a morning like I did, it wont be forgotten.
    • Well sounds like all went well. My wife just called and picked her up. She does have a drain tube but according to the wife she's acting normal..... For her!
