      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 .

Alright! Who are the favored teams this year in the (out) state regions? I already know Eden Prarie will win Class 5A, so lets see what you guys got to say for the smaller schools? I hear Brainerd has another good team, as does Becker. How about down south teams, and any sneaky teams up north?? (East GF, Stephan-Argyle, I-Falls, Greenway, etc.?) Lets here it!

I agree Bill. I think HF will take the section this year. I heard rumor HF was supposed to have a new field this year (artifical turf). I rode by there today after work and it's still the same 'ol grass. grin

The Giants have some work to do after seeing the game tonight. But glad to see they came back in the 2nd qtr to take the lead and not look back.

Looking at the talent pool the Giants have coming up, next year and the year after will be good years for LSH. Especially if Swanny can continue to improve at the QB spot. He did a great job tonight considering he's only a Sophmore. But still a little work to do.

41-Donut has double meaning in Hutchinson now. What the heck is going on there? I guess that switch to smaller schools is leaving the town with some indigestion. Going to have to make some changes from Missota to Wright.

Becker lost to STMA 14-7 at their place, but by all accounts from parents it was a "good game"... sloppy on both sides with penalties etc... Hate to see 2 big time rivals have to play week one, but that is the schedule. Hopefully we get em at sections.

GSL kicked some [PoorWordUsage], glad to see it! No real upsets around the St. Cloud area, my hometown of Foley beat up on scum Lac Qui Parle team (their never any good) 41-7. Albany looks tough again for conference, but they lack in size on the lines. Mississippi "Nine" conference looks pretty wide open, no real favorites. Man I feel old school that there isn't a Rum River Conference anymore, in which I played in..every team went their separate ways!

If I remember right, the plays called by the Central Raiders in last years 9th grade game was very similar to the GSL play book.

A sign of things to come? shocked

I'll stick to my guns and "claim" that next year will be a good one for LSH. BK19's son and my son are both in a good class of players. A close knit group that resembles the team from a couple years ago that had Savage and Prax.

BK19,

your wife and son were nice enough to give him a ride home when his bike broke down and he threw it in the ditch.

I said "Hi" on my way out of the game Friday night, but you had your mind on other things.

My father announces for my hometown boys down in Grand Meadow so I took my kids down there last night and saw something pretty amazing. In the first 14 minutes of the game a kid brought back 2 INT's over 50 yards for TD's, a punt return over 50 yards for a TD, and threw 2 TD's for around 30 yards a piece.

Well lesueur/henderson lost against belle plaine 14 to 12 it really frustrates me when they always try for 2 pat instead of kicking for 1 I believe the 2 point should only be used IE: when you are down by 2 with a few seconds left in the game not when you are down 14 zip with 2 quarters left grrrr

    • How hard has he been running this 400 HP rig? Might be as simple as a plug wire or might require a compression test. 
    • Get the choke adjusted that should take care of the cold start issue. A weak fuel pump usually starts to show up at high RPMs.   If left to idle the fuel pump fills the carb bowl, as you accelerate the weak pump can't keep up and the engine bogs and bucks.  A bad fuel filter will do the same thing and is often overlooked. You probably have 2 filters,  one on the gas line and one inside the inlet of the carb.  Replace them, don't clean them.   A  fuel pump pressure test would be the next thing to do.   If your getting the bog throughout the power band then I'd suspect something electrical but it could show up just at higher RPMs or load as well.  Condition of plug wires, dist cap, rotor, pickup coil, and vacuum advance.  1st check all the vacuum lines for cracks and loose connections.  Something that old is bound to have bad lines.  While your at it clean the PCV vavle.  Google HEI distributor to test the pickup coil and ohm values.   Check the linkage to vacuum advance.  You can do a visual on the cap and rotor but its hard to find a hairline crack.   Keep us updated.  
    • I was seeing the same things on the lakes in Roseville/Shoreview. I assumed that with the cold temps over night the ice was growing and expanding causing a few of those cracks to show up.  Maybe some of the light snow helped push the ice down enough to let a little water seep through.
    • Tried wiring the choke open at operating temp and took for a drive. Still misses at appx 45 mph. Always seem to miss about 90% of the time at that speed although sometimes at around 30mph. Next question,,, fuel pump maybe or possibly the EGR VALVE. Dont have a way to test the fuel pump but thinking with the way its hard to start I was thinking possibly low fuel pressure. 
    • Bald Eagle skimmed over on Saturday.  Today after the relatively light snow there are many areas where the cracks look like water came up through and discolored the ice.  At least that what I think happened. Since there was only an inch or so of snow I am surprised that it pushed the ice down and let water come up.  Anyone else have an explanation?
    • I am assuming it was either an Ion, SM Lithium, or drill setup... If it is, no need for a slush copter. I put my slush bucket over the hole... drill... then reverse. In 12" of ice I can do 6 holes with one dump of the bucket. Every 6" beyond that takes another dumping of the bucket.
    • I have the parts on order to get the unit set up for the ice.  I ended up buying a marcum lithium shuttle for my LX7 and then plan to mount the Helix on the shuttle that came with my LX7.  I am hoping to find walk-able ice in my area this weekend and hopefully the parts show up before then so i can give it a go.  I have the pre-chirp model of the helix so with a little luck i can get them to cooperate.
    • Big home game tonight against a very young and vastly improved Calgary team.  Should be a great game.
    • I sold my old 4 stroke and bought a new electric this year because of the fumes.  Even drilling 4 holes nearly gassed me every time.  
    • I'd be careful about extending these older guys at this point....extending Koivu was a mistake and if Staal proves out and he's worth it we can sign him later...like we should have done with Koivu...but we've already been down that discussion. Agree on the 3 on 3 OT wins...we showed more aggressiveness, it paid off...and then it becomes a confidence factor which we certainly should have going forward.  Big game tonight.
