      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 .

Had a revo break on me and I'm wondering where I can take it in the cities to get it fixed. Abu says take it to authorized abu service center. Anyone know where a place like that is? I'm in roseville but I'll drive a ways to get it fixed. Thanks.

I'll second Trails End Bass Pro ... Call before you go to verify hours, the shop hours are not always the same as the shore hours.

Check Blue ribbon Tackle. Larry's live bait done reels but it closed.

I am pretty sure the guy at Blue Ribbon only does reel cleaning/lubing, and not repair. Could be wrong, but when I talked to him a few months ago he was trying to start up this service ... Also, the service was completely seperate from Blue Ribbon Bait Shop, no direct relationship other than at the time he was an employee that worked there.

I ship my Abu Garcia 6500's to Armadillo Rod and Reel Repair in Yantis, Texas. They do a superb job and quick too. I just take them into the UPS Store and they package them up and ship them out. The guy that runs the business is named Joe Arnold. and he does Abu repair. Just do a google for Armadillo Rod & Reel Repair and you will get their webpage and address.

Talk to pretty much any decent sized sporting good store and they should be able to hook you up with where to send it... What crapped out on it? Mine is starting to get goofy on me too...
