      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 .

Prop repair or replacement

Recommended Posts

Just got back from Rainy River (great fishing ), and ran into a submerged deadhead on our last day, bending all 3 prop blades in the process and putting a 1 in. crack in 1 blade. My question is : should I even think about repairing it or should just get a new prop? I live in the Twin Cities ( sw suburbs) and the Prop is from a Honda 90 HP.Thanks!

Depends on what y ou would replace it with.

I replaced my aluminum prop. It would have been about 2/3's the price to rebuild it...at least in my kneck of the woods.

Heck, if you have the funds, buy a new one and keep it on hand for emergencies etc.

Propulsion associates in Hudson does some awsome work at a reasonable price.

I have seen guys make a mold from concrete with there props when they are new and any time they bend they place it in the mold and hammer it back to true form with a rubber hammer. Can save alot of money if you fish rivers alot. I read a good article on it by Dave Genz on this issue in this months walleye insider.
