      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.

Regardless, Edwards still spun Wild Thing.

Everybody knows Carl is a dink. Just ask Matt Kenseth

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 agree Lawdog, the play after the race was more than likely the issue.

At least Edwards admitted that he was wrong, something the kid probably would not do.

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.

What happened to letting the boys be boys?

Is Busch on his first probation of the year, or is he now on double probation?

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.

Carl's darn lucky Ol Matty did'nt slap the tar outta him !!

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.

It was pretty obvious Edwards had the faster car, after all Busch had 30 some laps after the pass to catch him and put Edwards in the wall and couldn't. The antics after the flag was a Nascar version of roadrage.

    • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D8B7xbrAGw   Ice fishing in Wisconsin can be a challenge at times. Catching walleyes is not always an easy task either. We had some crazy weather leading up to this weekend, it was -20 degrees for a solid week and a half, followed by 2-3 days of mid 30s and pushing 40 plus some rain, then we went right back down to -20 degrees. This made for a challenge fishing tip ups this morning. I’ve got some new hole covers for my Finicky Foolers, which do work great as I’ve used them before, but unfortunately with no snow cover I made the mistake of not setting them right away and forming slush to the cover. Lesson learned. I did get a bit lucky catching that walleye as I thought it would have dropped the minnow with the line being froze. The first fish I caught was definitely a surprise, a species I have never caught through the ice before, although I have heard they are fairly common to catch out on this lake. Still was hoping it was a giant walleye, but fun nonetheless! With the cold we weren’t really planning on moving much. We would mark fish every 10 minutes or so but many of them were tight lipped. We did manage a couple more fish jigging, which were some good sized crappie and perch! Overall I did end up accomplishing the goal of catching a slot walleye out here, so can’t complain. I will be out on Petenwell Lake more times this winter!
    • Drilled the holes first then set the sleeves down seemed to work a lot better...just have to make sure you mark your holes lol
    • A nice bite continues with anglers catching all sizes of walleyes and saugers.  Most of the action on the south shore is in 24-30' of water.  Daytime bite continues thanks to stained waters of LOW.  There has been a good morning evening bite in 15-17' as well.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick (hook/jig with live minnow under bobber) effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink uv.  Small rippin raps also good. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.     The NW Angle also has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained great. Ice road goes to Flag and Oak Island from Young's Bay. Good walleyes in 22-28' with saugers and perch in water deeper than 26'. Combo of jigging spoons and dead sticks with a jig and minnow effective.  Resorts are guiding anglers to slab crappies on the Ontario side of lake. Preserve the resource, catch your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.  
    • I believe I picked that one up at Red Rock Wilderness Store.  It’s located east of Ely on the Fernberg.   Good thing is he does have an on line store too. 
    • How about using a AGM battery. They are sealed so no need to vent. I use one in my Yetti for the last 3 years. I also use a big volt and run a forced air furnace. I made an extra storage area in front of my rear jack knife sofa for the battery. I remove the lid to access it to hook up the big volt. After drilling the hose I reconnect the house power back to the battery. I used old jumper cable ends from my power source to the house. That way I just pull off the cables when I leave the house. No drain on battery when I’m gone. Easy access. I had it under rear sofa that was a pain. Best change I made to the house. I got the old cables off a dead jumper unit at the landfill. 
    • The Marcus Willimans that plays for the saints is not from Minnesota. The Marcus Williams that you are referring to plays for Houston.     Going to be 52 degrees there????? 
    • Did you ask @Wanderer since it was a picture you took from his post?    
    • Good job Ryan and dad!  Great photo too!  
    • The 30 is a log to have to carry constantly but sure is nice to have to keep the bait lively!  I went last night and purchased another pump in order to plug into the wall...$13 and all I have to do is move the tube from one pump and connect to the other.  I am seeing if I can easily keep minnows alive from one weekend to the next.
