      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

For Sale:

1974 Johnson 9.9 Outboard

This is a motor my Dad purchased about five years ago for a small ten foot aluminum fishing boat we had on a small lake. He bought it from Jack's Marine in Cokato, MN about 45 minutes west of the metro area on Highway 12. That is about all we know of its history.

Like I said he’s had it for about five years and it has run great ever since he bought it.

I know first hand because last year we put it on our 14 ft Grumman for a couple weeks while our other motor was being serviced. I was surprised to see it running so well and how swiftly it pushed that bigger boat.

We are uncertain of the exact year but the Model Number on the boat is “10 R 74 S” so we assumed it to be from 1974.

Included with the motor is a 5 gallon gas tank and hose to connect fuel to the motor.

Price: $480.00 or best offer

Email me at, with a subject of “Johnson 9.9”, reply here on the HSOforum or just give my Dad (Ken) a call at (320) 543-3603 after 5:30 p.m. He has the motor at his house if you would like some measurements or anything else of that nature.

Here are some pictures.
