      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 .

Wolves

Recommended Posts

It was a nice game by the Wolves last night. Love looked good in the second half. We may just win 35 games this year. With season opener less then a week away, how many wins do you predict for this season? I will say 35-40 missing the playoffs again.

I wouldn't get to pumped over a pre-season game. I will say 20-23 games this year and a top 3 lottery pick.

I would have to agree with that one, 20-25 wins. They are still a very young team and there is much better talent on the other teams from the Western Conf.

Ya that OJ Mayo trade looks like it is going to bite us in the rear, but only time will tell.

oh I am going to be the homer on this one as this is my fav. MN team and I am going to say they win 32-37 games.....They have a better squad than last year and they won 22 games last year and lost a few last year in the 4th...with Foye healthy and the addition of Mike Miller we will definatly win 30+............I hope!!

I think a # 8 seed in the playoffs is in the mix--

Corey Brewer I heard was much improved

What I have seen of them they haven't impressed me at all. After watching(Wed. night) love missing baskets when he is right under the basket I just had to turn the channel. Why god why did we make that trade?

They got some good bit players in the trade. I like Mike Miller to keep help defenders honest. Mayo probably would have walked away when his rookie contract expired. At least Love wants to be here. Who wants a Vancouver-Steve Francis situation?

I like them to win 31 games. That is my prediction. 31-51. They'll show some flashes. Hopefully they can add some free agents next year and score a nice draft pick.

Anybody going to season opener? I got free tickets in row 8 so I'm gonna be there. These will be the best seats I've had and hope that it will make the game more interesting than the last game I went to, which was the worst professional sporting event I've ever seen.

I'm hoping they do well, but I don't have a lot of faith in the team. I'll still go to a few games, I enjoy basketball, but I hope they get something together soon and start to compete.

Crazy guy on the fan said we will win 52 games -- I don't think so, but we will be much much better, competitive and close. I think we will lose 20 3-point games. But that is getting better.

My girlfriend got some free tickets for the opener tonight. We will be in 112.

I have only been to one game, and that was in a suite. We will see how being close to the court is.

Was a decent game for the little I watched it. They looked good for how young they are and got a win. How'd you like the close seats Tom? I try to go to a few every year.

They looked pretty good.....too bad Sacramento isn't going to be good this year but a win is a win!! Kevin Love 12 points 9 rebounds!

I think they'll win around 30 games. They'll be a fun team to watch as their offense will be pretty dynamic when then get used to playing together. Their defense really sucks though, Brewer is the only guy on the roster that can defend his position.

I thought Love looked great in the win. They were like +20 with him on the court, Wittman should have played him more. I know it's only one game, but Mayo was like 5/20 from the field. He's gonna take a ton of shots this year on that team.

Boy, I don't get that one. Down by 3 to Oklahoma City after leading by 12 and Miller doesn't take the final shot? Great game by Randy Foye. 0 for 10 and 2 points. Meanwhile Brandon Roy is averaging 20 a game. Ouch.

    • Hooked up with the Finicky Fooler owner and creator Tom to do some ice fishing for walleye on Petenwell Lake in central Wisconsin. We managed to catch a few jigging and and also a few on the Finicky Fooler tip ups including a nice slot walleye! Ice fishing walleye can be tough at times but I am glad we ended up getting into a few fish. We moved 3 times before we finally found some active fish away from some crowds.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8dRlwxKVTI&t=1s
    • Well so much for the big storm around here. 
    • That's what it's all about right there. Father and son making memories.
    • When you sum up a season with those pictures, it’s hard for the Frozen Chosen to agree you had a terrible one.    VERY nice.   I can understand though, not getting to enjoy what’s there is almost worse than not having it at all!
    •   Don’t have find my phone turned on or whatever your particular phone’s location service is and your photos shouldn’t be geo tagged.   Sometimes when I get geo tagged text pics from others, I let them know.    I agree with Eyeguy, we’ve slanted just about every fish catching possibility our way and the internet forums are just another one of those tools.  But like a flasher for ice fishing, we’d hate to be without em anymore.  Everybody wants to know what’s going on.   But yeah, being careful with sensitive resources probably has led to less chat about specific lakes unless they’re the ones already being advertised on billboards.
    • A good way to wreck a lake is to put out "there is a hot bite" out on the internet.
    • Ufatz, Rockport is rebuilding, but they have a looooong ways to go. That’s actually what took up a good portion of my season this year. Lotsa people still need help, and it just didn’t seem right to be out chasing ducks when I could be helping people rebuild their lives. They’ll still be there next year Yes there’s still clouds of redheads. They’re too easy to kill. Problem was, those puddles love to hang out in the shallow marshes, and with the lowest tide I’ve ever seen, they were dry all week. Makes hunting real tough cuz they spread out in the big bays and it’s real hard to narrow down any concentration of birds
    • Do big bunches of redheads still hang out in the basin right in Rockport?:)   And how is poor Rockport looking these days? It really took a beating from the big storm. Didn't ever get around to hunting the area but spent two or three winters there a few years back. Lots of good fishing and pleasant weather most of the time. BUT it can get chilly!! Glad you had fun; it's always nice to see flocks of ducks even if you don't actually get a shot at them.
    • info speed, electronics, titanium spring bobbers, custom rods, inline reels, faster augers, plastic baits, sharper hooks.  fish dont stand a chance.   Speed of info probably the biggest factor. Pics on sites are great but cant share specific location or even the lake unless its a beast of a lake. I just heard last week that sometimes cell phone pics can be investigated to find gps location if a guy is knowledgeable in how to do it. Blurr out the background might not work before long. I think these type sites can still be good for tips but gotta be careful with location info. 
    • I had same challange. Went with a 12v temperature relay switch. Heater/Fans in my DIY wheelhouse now functions just like my home or RV forced air furnance. It comes with a small heat sensing probe i mounted on my upper air duct than set the on/off temperature so fans runs/stops when heat kicks on/off. Provides perfect comfort for $15.00. https://www.walmart.com/ip/bayite-DC-12V-Fahrenheit-Digital-Temperature-Controller-10A-1-Relay-with-Sensor/585224840?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=12524&adid=22222222227093022211&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=t&wl3=213210114658&wl4=pla-345493512458&wl5=9019533&wl6=&wl7=9019476&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=117430032&wl11=online&wl12=585224840&wl13=&veh=sem   Sensor under foil tape   Took photo when furnace was off. Temp range -40 to 230 f. Spare probe to right of controller, copper tube is thermostat, black button is pilot iginter.   Total set up with 4 speed auto fan switch.
