      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 .

Established CRAB GRASS help

Recommended Posts

I had a guy liquid fert. my yard on Fri. He tells me that what I thought was QUACK is actually CRAB grass. I have tons of this in my yard so what can I use to get rid of this stuff? Also Where can I buy the stuff you recomend?

Thanks. ANDY

They make a spray that all of the big box home stores carry, a couple different versions, I like the style that hooks on a hose and you just turn on the water and spray the water and "crabgrass killer", or you can mix it and apply by hand sprayer if you get the concentrate. I also get the concentrate and then add that to the hose sprayer bottle when it runs out. In the spring, apply a crabgrass preventer if you are not trying to grow new seed. Best of luck, it might take a few treatments of the spray to knock it out.

You cannot use just any "weed killer". You need to be sure that it's labeled for Crabgrass.

The professional versions are called Drive 75, Q4, Momentum Q.

Momentum Q is a combination broadleaf herbicide as well as a post emergent crabgrass control.

If your guy is licensed and knows what he's doing, he should be able to apply this for you.

If you want to know if he's licensed, you can look up the company on the Minnesota Department of Agriculture's HSOforum.

Pretty early to have a yard infested with crabgrass. I have a feeling you were right to begin with that it is quack. Has it been there all year or did it just pop up in the last week?? If it has been there since this spring and it grows fast and tall it is probably quack. I personally have yet to see crabgrass this year, but not saying its not out there.

P.S. Just because he has a liscence doesn't mean he knows what he is talking about. wink

It has been there for years and is spreading every year. I personally think it is Quack. I'm just not ready yet to roundup the whole yard to get rid of it. PITA

Maybe it would be a good help for others if those of you who know the difference between the 2 grasses posted a couple pictures of the 2. Lots of people don't know the difference.

Yea if its been there for years and doesn't die off every year in September you have quack just like me. Crabgrass can begin to sprout this time of year but it is still early. Usually don't start seeing alot of it until the end of June. We just got done putting down pre-emergent last week. You may want to educate your lawn care expert and show him a thing or two. smile I can name one lawn care company that is full of incompetent licensed employees....they are somehow the largest in the country!!

That's because they're a marketing company, not a lawn care company.

Hey now, there may be some truth to that but take it easy on us, some of us at this marketing company do know what we're talking about.... wink

    • Thanks. I decided to go with my gut, and ordered medium light action 8'6" Depthmaster rods. Spent some time trolling with them the other day, and I think they'll be fine. Just gotta remember to be careful with the larger fish around the boat when netting. Now if I could just better understand seasonal locations/presentations for my local walleye, I'd be all set! Trolled for 4.5 hrs without so much as a nibble yesterday. Trolled various cranks and harnesses the entire time, at different depths/speeds (1.0-1.5 mph with harnesses, and 1.8 -2.4 with cranks), hoping to make contact with one. I did find the Precission Trolling app to be pretty darn accurate with my dive curves though. So that was refreshing ... :-)
    • Nice bird! After my uneventful day Sat I gave Sunday a break Going out Monday morning to see If I can tag one.
    • Just me, or is 7:15 odd for birds to fly up to roost? 2 just flew up 75 yds out.
    • Congrats Donbo. Great looking bird.  
    • Way to go Ryan, and Dad. Can't wait to see the pics. Congrats
    • Well good weekend in the woods! Never got a bird in range! Will be back out! Nice Donbo!!!
    • Good job Wally, always love to see your early season successes.  Nice bird AS!  Long season ahead with no tag in the pocket huh?
    • Good job guys! Great start to the season.
    • Totally agree with you featherslayer. I have a bud who will be down May 2. Just as much fun calling for him and figuring strategy as shooting one myself. More fun actually.
    • Very disappointing season so far. Getting swept by Tampa Bay is unacceptable! No reason to believe we won’t get swept by the Yankees either. 4 game series against the twins could be exactly what Giancarlo Stanton needs to break out of his slump.
