      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 .

SomethingFishy, I see you did a duel register on your new quad. Does a quad with tracks need to registered as ORV on lakes and road ditchs in winter???

Yes it needs to be registered as an ORV with the tracks to be legal any time of year.

I personally have not had an issue on the lakes, but after hearing warnings that others were given I asked the CO working the Atv Fair and he stated it needed the ORV sticker. I went to the DMV, they gave a quick call over to the DNR office to confirm and $38.50 later I had a 3 year sticker. I did this all at the St. Cloud branch.

I will also need to confirm but I believe it is legal to drive on the shoulder of the road, rather than in the ditch. Not quite sure what it will all allow, the ice fishing was the only reason I cared.

Dual registering is a scam! This state is a joke, if it's registered it should be good for everything. Just another way of squeezing money from us. I will not be dual registering my ranger for when I have my tracks on.

Next thing you know you'll have to have an additional license on your vehicle to drive on the ice, shoot I probably just gave them another idea, when will the nonsense stop?

When you willingly reconfigure your machine, you put it into a different category.

I do agree that any ATV with tracks added should still be considered an ATV.

Nice looking machine as always Josh.

I'd be a little concerned about those brake lines being exposed as much as they are.

I've thought that myself but they are pretty tight in place. I have been considering adding some front/rear aluminum a-arm guards. But the Richochets are the best and they have a price that proves it.

Josh,

Congrats on the new ride. Nice looking rims. smile Have you had the tracks on it yet? With the fuel pack on front and no rack extentions, where will the auger be mounted? Brushguards look sweet. How are the Piaa's mounted?

After running 300+ miles with the tracks on my machine this past winter, the XP with EPS would be the way to go.

Haven't had the tracks on it yet, although I did test drive one with them.

The front cargo box fuel box comes off and a regular rack/rack extender snaps in with the lock'n'ride and I will have an auger mount on that. I can also put the auger under the Otter cover, it rides securely they way I modded the Otter.

Another benefit of the cargo box/gas cans on the front is it helps keep the front end on the ground grin

The Piaa's are mounted to tabs off of the custom brushguard, they were made specefic for the piaa's.

I hear ya on the gas cans smile Did the piaa's come factory installed or did you add them? The EPS with tracks should be huge for meneuvering when moving snow.

    • DC to AC converters work well on low AC current but takes a bit of DC battery current. Example a drip coffee maker uses 900 AC watts (7.5 amp) which draws 83 amps DC battery current. 15 AC amps draws 165 DC battery amps. (Based on 110 VAC & 12 VDC). Batteries die quickly converting to AC. https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/ac-to-dc-amperage-conversion-run-through-an-inverter.html
    • Saturday I am going to be duck hunting and I always am excited for opening day!  I know I will get some shooting in but let's just hope the ducks are where I want them.
    • You know there are no guarantees that he signs here for less money. He certainly would have gotten more elsewhere after this season based on comparables. Who are the replacements for him? We have guys that may be a year or two removed from being a top 6 guy, but this buys us time. Worst case he slides down to 3rd or 4th line and one of our young guys still on an ELC elevates if his game drops. He could also be consistent with his last two seasons, a solid #2 center and allow the likes of Kunin and Ek to develop down the lineup.
    • Might find it in here...... https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/exhibits/butterfly-rainforest/id-guide/orange/  
    • Very nice photos eyeguy54.
    • Ya he comes home the 29th getting excited for pheasant going to take a trip out to sodak this year Ended up showing a guy from work who is a first time bow hunter a couple of my spots in Sherburne. Was going to walk kunkel after for grouse but it ended up getting too late so just went home. Was hoping for some good weather this weekend but doesn't look too good. Friday is a high of 90! no thanks Maybe I will get a morning sit in for deer hunting if the rain cooperates
    • anybody know what it is?
    • I've been finding a few hens, but nothing like last year (which was great for me).  Here's one that was just shy of ten pounds sitting next to my daughter.
    • You may as well paddle a green kiddie pool around.  Might find one for 50 cents if you look a little. Um, yeah, I've actually seen it done. 
    • Good move!  I'm sure they are thankful! I might've made an offer if I'd seen this before but they'll probably be better used in the organization that received them. Sorry the hear your hunting days are over.
