      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 .

Good luck Boar!!  I got pulled out of school all the time for hunting/fishing and I turned out mostly ok (unless you ask my family or friends)!  I hope she shoots a big one, if not, it's quality time with Papa Boar!

    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.    
    • A Tucan? If you break them up I don't see a seed eater passing them by.    Maybe bait for Late Season Squirrel.  
    •   Well you must be talking about my old-New Cat?   Tore it down and found a finger tight head bolt and loose carb boot bolt!  Someone at the Cat plant went to lunch a little early!! The cylinder is in the shop right now so it may be back on the lake fishing anyway yet this year?  High speed trails. May be not?
    •  Following Monday's snow we hit the Reservoir Trail out of Twig Wed afternoon.  Freshly groomed and what a sweet ride it was but too short  More snow in the forecast.   Ride When and What You Can. Going out Fri night.
    • "A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way"  For what the new POO Axys or the 2003 Cat? Very low miles on an old sled is good but sitting idle for years is no good. Dirty carbs and or rust on the bearings was the Cats downfall.
    •  Most riders are going to cross a driveway in the ROW as if it were any other crossing.  Start putting up barricades or berms to impede crossing the the ROW and heads will butt.  Point is you may have paved the driveway onto the ROW and feel some ownership but the law says you don't control it.   I see it all the time where a landowner blocks of the ROW.   The local club might contact you or Law Enforcement will to inform you to remove the barrier.  
    • I have two huge bags of shelled pecans and walnuts from Xmas that won't be used anytime soon and was wondering if I can feed these to birds and what species of birds would eat them
    • Well, it’s been a few more days. Cardinals are eating it, but they don’t seem to prefer it. Must be a lower quality seed, perhaps? I’m only getting 1 or 2 cardinals now, as opposed to the 10 to 12 I was getting before. Also not getting the sunset feeding frenzy anymore. The redpolls love it though. Anyway, do you guys do anything to help prevent sunflower shell messes, or do anything to clean them up, or do you just deal with the mess?
    • I noticed lately most tire shops have and use torque wrenches instead of just relying on impacts like they used to. Probably a liability thing. Keep in mind a lot of shops employ high school kids part time which is good because they know everything at that age. I had a shop years back put on lugs so tight it ruined the rims and lug nuts. Breaker bar is also a handy tool as well as the BFH
    • Congrats huckfin!!! It was a crashfest! Now to the real racing.
