      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 .

Bye, Bye Walleye In-Sider...

Recommended Posts

First the PWT, now the Walleye In-Sider mag is following in its footsteps. Another sad day as I really did enjoy that magazine.

Thats a real shame, it was one of the few remaining magazines worth reading, every issue had tons of good information.

That's too bad. When is the last issue?? I'm paid for several years, at least that's what I tried several times to do.

Only problem with In-Fish, Walleye-Insider, ect., is / was their, for lack of better term, Subscription Customer Service. In an attempt to clear up a multiple year subscription gift for myself, my brother and father, and accidental double order (on-line order), I talked to multiple "reps" that had no idea how to remedy the situation, and didn't know the difference between the different magazines (Walleye In-Sider, In-Fisherman, ect). One said there was nothing she could do. Another could see the problem, but didn't know how to change it to what I wanted. Obviously they had another company managing their subscriptions. I talked to one (out of 5) reps that was helpful. Otherwise, the CS was awful. Pretty sure I was talking to folks in the South (not in Baxter/ Brainerd).

Anyways, that's sad, but I'd be first in line to subscribe to anything put out by the Lindners.

That's a drag. I've been a long-time subscriber to the magazine. I look forward to its replacement.

I'll miss it for sure. Berkley Gulp must have dropped it's sponsorship. That's about the only thing most authors fished with the last couple of years it seemed.

I have nearly all the copies,since it was still in newspaper form backin the late 80's. Sort wish I had every one, lots of great info in them. I bought the first 8yrs of the MN trout stamp prints. great investment. I was looking for that in the walleye stamp.

Darn! I just started my walleye-insider sub this year and really like it. I get In-fisherman already but its a little heavy on bass for me.

What are some other good walleye mag subscriptions?

I guess that explains why I never got a renewal notice for my subscription.

Not sure if you guys have read the FLW Outdoors - Walleye Edition magazine but it is very good as well. Obviously more geared towards the FLW tourney anglers and bodies of water but we still have a 6-8 months a year magazine dedicated to walleyes.

I will miss it as well but found it to be getting to the point I learned little if anything reading it. It started to seem like stories were recycled and it was more about advertising and pics than good in depth writing. Wich is the norm in this day and age.

Sure would be nice to have a mag that covered up north walleye techniques and waters.

Northlander, you said it, there is so much advertising in the magazines now. I want to read new articles, not have half the magazine filled with advertisements and recycled articles. With that being said, I hate to see the magazine go.

The demise of the PWT is what did the mag in. Without it, they had a hard time filling the pages.

It was good about 10 years ago or so when you got a magazine every month, instead of the multiple-month issues they have now. Even with multiple-month issues they were getting pretty thin. I think I still have my old mags in a box somewhere....

    • 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?
