      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 .

Official Twins Road trip Game Thread.

Recommended Posts

Post all Rants, concerns, and Frustrations regarding the Twins longest road trip "14 days" in 40 years!

Personally If the Twins are within 3 games of the Central lead after this trip I'll be pretty happy.

Tonights match up versus Tori Hunter and the Angles.

Lackey (10-2, 3.22 ERA) vs Scott Baker (7-3, 3.91)

Go Twins!

The real season starts now...Lots of scoreboard watching.

3 game sounds reasonable to me...To bad these are night games out in LA. I hate west coast game. An old guy like me needs his sleep. grin

Hopefully they can win at least one Angel game and win the series with the Mariners, Oakland, and Toronto. My prediction is a 7/7 split being a game or two out of first at the end of it all. I think we'll have a good idea if they can win the division on how well they handle this road trip. Time for the Twins to turn it on.

I would settle for 7/7 on this road trip! If only we can talk windy in getting those Sox to loose a few here and there wink

The twins aren't too shabby lately either, The darn homers the sox are hitting are unbelievable. Must be nice to have a $120 Million dollar payroll. It's going to be a good seriese with the Angels.

I can see the Twins sneaking two from LAA, two in Seattle, two in Oakland (maybe three), and two in Toronto. That's 8-6 in the next two weeks.

Chicago might get one with Tampa Bay, three with Baltimore, one with Boston, and three with Cleveland in the same time period. They do have nine of the next twelve on the road. So, they could go 8-4.

If my North Dakota math serves me that would make the Twins behind by 3 games due to the fact the the Sox play two fewer games in the same time period.

Optomistic? Yep, that's what fans are supposed to be.

This will be a big test for the twins if they can come off this road trip with better then half the games won they will be in great shape for the final 4 weeks and yes i think they could go 10-4 out west.

I'm hoping for a 9-5 road trip from the twins. The whitesoxs always struggle in the month of September. Weather gets colder and the balls stay in the park.

It's do or die time. Let's hope they do it! It may be a stretch, but I too think they could go 10-4. Let's hope I don't eat those words!

GO TWINS!!!

Punto had a great night. If our boys would quit swinging at pitches in their eyes (Young) or looking at third stike pitches over the heart of the plate (Harris, Morneau) we may just go 8-6 on this trip.

The Sox have a long history of a late season dive and should start this any day now.

Twins up by a game when we get back to the Dome 9/4.

Go Twins!

Well the Sox havent been showing any weakness lately! So they better hurry and take this dive quick.

I think if the Twins are going to win the division, they are going to have to work for it this year.

    • Down this way I have been getting most my fish around weed edges and weed clumps. Trigs for good edges and chatterbaits worked on bottom or over the weeds, kinda how I would fish a jig. Water around here is pretty murky right now. Docks have been good on those lakes with dirty water and not so many weeds.
    •   You'd poke yer eye out. 
    • Hi, from the Northwest Angle! Water temps are staying consistently in the low 70’s.

      Stateside, walleye fishing has been good from Lunatic to Garden Islands. The edges of islands and reefs in 22-29’ will provide walleye, perch and occasional large pike. Most productive methods have been minnows on gold spinners and deep diving crank baits in UV tiger, clown and blue/chrome.

      Canadian walleyes can be had jigging minnows with gold, pink, and chartreuse on edges of reefs.  Monkey Rocks is holding many schools of fish currently, as well as, reefs south of Deepwater Bay. Bottom bouncing outside these reefs will produce fish as well. Muskie fishing has slowed a little, however nice fish in upper 40’s can be caught in “windows” of time, usually coinciding with Majors and Minors.

      We hope to see you for some fantastic fall fishing & hunting!
    • He isn't going to set the world on fire, but only been a minus guy 3 times in his entire career. While Scandella is a -10 for his career. Quincey is more physical so I think that will be good. There is probably more upside with Scandella, no, definitely there could be, but he was really terrible last year. Perhaps Quincey gets paired with Dumba. That would be good for Dumba because when he was paired with Leopold he had his best stats following picking him up.
    • cloudy and rainy here today is gonna take all the fun out it. I do know the fish didn't cooperate for a sundown bite last night.
    • After two years cables go too.  Its all about maintenance.  If you case them and keep them lubed up there are plenty of people that have had electric jacks for may years.  Good reason its becoming almost a standard upgrade on many RV's out there.  Will report back, we are pulling the house back from the lake in a couple  weeks so should get a start on it inside of the month.
    • Any type of charging/starting systems should ALWAYS be fused. Basic wiring 101. If not, and you fry the he** out of something, no complaints are allowed.
    • The guy that built my frame talked me out of them. He said the first yr or two there great. Then problems start, he said I would be coming back to him and putting a winch system back on. He said he has taken the electric off lots of frames and put them back to winch system.   With the two speed winch and a cordless drill it is so easy.
    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!
