      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 .

COD Franchise

I'd play it but I havent heard anything about them creating one, maybe the war was too controversial? I like'em all, just get tired of the WWII scenario.

The war was controversial, but so is the current one we are involved in, and come November, there will be 2 CODs modeled after middle east campaigns.

Are you serious?! COD 4 was the best by far, I cant wait to get more games like that one. The WWII stuff is way overplayed IMO

A while back there was a little flury of vietnam games but they never took off quite like WW2 games. Im sure the COD franchise could put together a decent vietnam game.

As long as they keep them "fairly" realistic and make the tanks easier to kill I don't care what war we are after.

True, jpz. I dont know why people knock cod5 so hard or hate on a game because its WW2. I dont get how people can love 4 and hate 5. If it has good gameplay I dont care what era its set in.

Dont get me wrong, I dont hate COD 5 but I just get sick of playing with old weapons. You cant tell me the weapons in COD 4 dont blow the weapons in COD 5 clean out of the water. I also never play online, so that probably comes into play for me as well.

Have any of you guys ever played Fallout 3? That is probably one of my favorite games I've ever played. It's as long as GTA but more of a COD type game.

Basicly 90% of my gaming is online so I guess were not really comparing apples to apples but I kinda like the weapon variety in WaW.

I borrowed fallout 3 and played it a little. I made it out of the shelter to the first town and through the school. I thought it was ok, maybe I didnt give it enough time... I had the hardest time shooting but came to learn about the little stop motion thing weeks after I stopped playing.

i never said #4 wasn't any good- I would love to see a Vietnam modeled version. I think it would have some great action

I think theyre all good. I've been playing the heck out of COD WOW, but would like more modern weapons. COD seems to have their war games down pat, any war would work

I like them all as well. I like both COD5 and COD4, and I still play both.

LOL, I wasnt trying to ask if you were serious about liking 4, I meant you were serious about 2 Vietnam ones coming out. I hadn't heard that.

Modern Warfare 2 dropped the Call Of Duty tag(or so they say). But I liked WAW more than COD4. I am a sucker for those era weapons. I would like a Vietnam based COD also. They make excellent games, and I think they would do a good job with that era.

    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?
