      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 .

Kevin Harvick

I am sure I miss spelled his last name, but he will live.

Kevin has asked to be released from his RCR contract to be allowed to sign a deal with Stewart-Hass Racing.

Childress has responded with a "NO, a deal is a deal, and you signed a deal to run untill the end of 2010."

Wow, trouble in paradise. What has become of RCR?

It is going to be an interesting silly season coming up. Kahne, Harvick, and Kurt Busch are 3 drivers that I believe will be free at the end of next season. I also think there are a couple more good ones. Right now there are not a lot of consistant performing teams out there. I hust wonder if this might put some pressure on the #24 driver to retire?

24 retire? Isn't he in second place?

Gordon is far from done. All of the above drivers are good but not on a Jeff Gordon level.

I agree with you 100%.

Jeff has nothing left to prove. Jeff will make it to the Hall of Fame on day.

But, Jeff is not done yet and I do not see Mr Hendrick getting rid of Jeff for one of the drivers mentioned or for that matter any other driver.

Soon it will be where it is almost at.

All owned by 1 person, no seperate owners, and a big show.

All the single car teams are on their way out, it will be down to Hendricks, Rousch, Gibbs, Stewart-Haas, and Childress, pretty soon 1 by 1 will be gone and presto.

well not if they get strict on the 4 race cars team deal

that would only be 24 cars or so

They are getting around the 4 car limit by using "satelight" teams. ie: Stewart-Haas is basically just another Hendrick operation.

I'm not quite sure that is totally accurate.

Are they part of HMS or do they just purchase cars or motors from them?

Many team do business with other teams as they cannot afford to do the R&D. Some also cannot afford the larger shops with wind tunnels and such.

    • When doing a Repo it's best to have some good pictures for them to try and copy. Part of the issue is they make a lot of their fish off molds they have made over the years of different size fish.  Not sure if they have to make a new mold if the cost will be more? That is why I have never had one done of this 36" inch Laker I caught and released a few years ago. It was really long but thin and all the molds the two company's I talked to had were big bellied Lakers from like Canada that didn't look anything like it. So I just didn't want to spend about $5-6 bills for a fish that didn't look much like the one I caught.  
    •   Thank you sir, I will check them out.   Phone pic of a disposable camera pic. Wish I would have got a little more detail. At sunset, lighting was bad.   Oct 21st bass. Big mouth and head, belly was not oversized, but it was a tall fish all the way back. No weight, but I am guessing it cracked 7 lbs.   I remember reading a couple years later after Mark Raveling broke the state record, and he said a 7 lb bass in MN is a once in a lifetime fish.   I now tend to agree with him.      
    • I just had to wiggle mine back and forth. The tolerances are pretty tight so it is not hard to bind it up. You should not have to use much force at all. I agree the design is so stupid and high maintenance. My next one will probably be with a torsion axle. Did you buy this from a dealer? 
    • I don't know anything about these but if you can put some heat to it , it might help
    • Not sure how the hell you guys “just slide it off!” It took me a good hour just to take off the metal retaining ring, this darn house is only 3 years old!! But after taking the ring off the axle doesn’t budge at all, tried jacking it up with a floor jack and it just flexes the stub it rests on. Pulling feels like trying to pull a 75 year old oak tree out of its roots; I soaked it with penetrating oil before calling it quits tonight; my last resort now is itll break and I’ll get some sort of wiggle room with the axle otherwise I put everything back together, pump it with grease and jack it up and down until it gets free?   Otherwise I’m going to have to bring it in and there’s another $200   i told the wife I’m ready to sell this PITA after only having 3 weeks with it; the axle design is the worst, why would they expose everything to the salt? Frustrated as you can tell...
    • SG is a 2013 with about 4K miles on it.

    • Thanks for the insight, I will purchase some tubes for the crab apple and plum.
