      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 .

Busch and Edwards have to play nice

This ought to get things going a little more...

Busch, Edwards placed on probation for Bristol antics

By NASCAR.COM

August 27, 2008

12:07 PM EDT

-NASCAR announced on Wednesday that it has placed Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards on probation for the next six races in the Sprint Cup Series, as a result of their on-track incident Saturday night at the conclusion of the race at Bristol.

Busch and Edwards violated Section 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing; hitting another competitor's car after the race had concluded) of the 2008 NASCAR rule book.

The probation takes effect beginning with this weekend's event at Fontana, Calif.

Executing an adroit bump and run on Lap 470, Edwards passed for the lead and pulled away over the final 30 laps, winning by 1.969 seconds over Busch.

"It's one of those deals where I couldn't get by him, I couldn't get by him, and I just had to ask myself, 'Would he do that to me?' Edwards said after doing his trademark backflip off the car in Victory Lane. "And he has before, so that's the way it goes.''

Unhappy with the way Edwards passed him for the lead, Busch bumped Edwards' No. 99 Ford after the checkered flag. Edwards bumped back, and Busch's No. 18 Toyota went spinning (watch video).

"He'll always come back and say he's sorry," Busch said. "He did it at Milwaukee and he's done it a few other times. It's just his normal fashion. That's fine. I've grown to know that now.

"You know, to pass a guy, to hit him getting into the corners ... is very tired. But that's what he did. ... I had been getting into the corner light all day, and I don't know, maybe I over-braked and drove myself right back into his nose."

NASCAR summoned Busch to the sanctioning body's transporter after the race.

"Let's make it real clear -- I'm not apologizing for it," Edwards said, citing several instances where he felt like Busch took him out of races to gain positions. "We're even.

"They keep talking about rivalries,'' Edwards added. "We might have one now.''

Now this is just not right in my mind Busch has gotten away with takin alot of people out of races all year and one little bump at bristol by Edwards to get by him and nascar puts them both on probation.Busch should of been on probation way back after the 4 race of the season when his stupid driving took out allmost half the field.All i can say is bristol has allways been a bangum up race track if your slow a little bump to get you out of the way should be ok as long as your not putting someone into the wall been that way allways will be.To put Edwards on probation in my mind was a big mistake by nascar he did nothing wrong the rat came affter him after the race ended like the rat poor driver he is.

Then I have to ask why The Rat wasn't placed on probation after he purposely spun the #88 on the last lap at Richmond? If not probation, at least a black flag for rough driving at the time of the incident?

I'm pretty sure it wasn't the contact during the race that got Carl in trouble (or shrub for that matter). It was Carl spinning him out after prickly bush ran into him on the cool down lap. I heard him on the radio yesterday saying he fully expected a penalty for that and didn't disagree that he'd deserve one.

I thought the whole thing was great! Did you hear the crowd go nuts when it happened? Now that is racing. Give the fans what they want. I guess I don't think anybody should be penalized. I just thought it was good PR.

It was good PR thats why they did it.

If they had not done anything and let it fly no one would be talking about it 5 days after it happened and they also waiting until Wed. to hand out the news. In the past we hear about it on Tuesday?

Nascar needs somthing for the fans to talk about right now in a year where the cars are junk (IMO) and the big name guy's are struggeling the ratings are down attendance is down Nascar needs something to help them threw the "down time" and get the fans pumped up about the chase.

There is my 2 cents.

ha! I'd like to see him try and do that. Would make for good entertainment, but Carl would knock the cheese right out of 'ol Matty. By the time he came to, he'd be a finely aged cheese! whistle

I thought the mantra at the beginning of the season for NASCAR was to let boys be boys? They wanted to spice it up a little due to their plummeting ratings and attendance.

My dad was at the Bristol race(s) this past weekend and it sounds like he had a blast at his first NASCAR event. I had the opportunity to go and passed on it for various reasons. I dozed off during the race so it's not the Bristol of old that's for sure. It still would have been a hoot.

Carls a pretty big, athletic guy. Matts fairly skinny. I don't actually think too many guys would mess with Edwards that race with him.

    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!  
    • Utube Randy Newberg spring bear hunts. He has a ton of DIY info on spring bear hunting
    • I've never used electric jacks, or hydro. I've heard they are pretty nice, and guys like them. It will be interesting to see how you feel about them after a season or two. I'd like to hear your input on them after you've used them awhile.
    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
