      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 .

I hope it's better than it shows on the web. 14 miles????? Pine center is also open, and wouldn't be surprised if Solana opens (40 miles)

I'm almost positive I'm open for the 17th. If you guys say it's worth the drive, I'll be there. I can fit 4 atv's on my trailer. I think I would head through St. Cloud anyways, right?

Yes, you would head thru St. Cloud unless you took HWY 25 thru Foley.

You have never ridden Spider before? There are well over 14 miles of trails, I am unsure why the site says that. There is plenty of good riding to fill a day or more of riding.

The 17th seems like it will be a good fit thus far for myself and others.

Nope, never rode there. I always rode private land near my cabin until my buddies decided they would rather spend their money at the bars then on an atv. Been on my own since.

I have graduation parties that weekend.

Roofer, mark down that Sunday. You'll be getting some mail in the next few days.

Yeah, for sure there is more than 14 miles. Maybe that's the atv only trails, not including multi-use. It's a fun trail to ride, definitely a full days worth.

How much of the trails are big enough for a side by side? A guy on another site may come with, but is asking about bringing his side by side instead of his atv's. Would it be worth it, or is there alot of two track trails?

LEP, you talking about memorial weekend Sunday?

I think the majority are class 2 trails but if my memory serves me correct a lot of the fun ones were 2 track. It would be a toss up.

I personally wouldn't want to run in a sidexside but about 50% of the trails are open to them. We had one in our group last year and they ended up trailering it about half way thru the day and opted for a standard atv.

Thanks for the info.

I invited a few from the nyroc site.

Looks like most of the trails are open now. Can't wait to try out spider lake. We should have a good group again for this one. ;\)

Also, I looked at my trailer again and it's only rated to haul 2400 lbs. So I can only haul 3 on it I guess.

There is a possibility of one or both of my uncles coming, and also my girlfriend with possibly a new machine... we may do some "looking" this weekend. I also mentioned it to a few others so it should be a great time.

Good to hear the move went good! You'll have plenty of time to unpack when it gets miserably hot in a month or so.

I wish it would have gone better. Our closing got pushed back a week and a half!

    • Between these two companies the grass is always greener on the other side.   I found that once your original contract is up with Direct TV you just need to call in yearly to get the "12 month promotion"  which brings your package down to where it should be. Every September I call to get my 1yr "promotion" which is worth $40 a month off the bill. Last year I got the $40 a month off and the NFL ticket. This year they wouldn't give me the NFL ticket, but with the $40 off it is priced right at the levels Dish would be at for a new customer.  The only complaint I have with Direct TV is that I went out and bought a King tailgater for direct tv, and then bought a cheap direct tv box off of the Internet for $50. When I had it connected over the phone they guy tried telling me that when I discontinued my service I'd have to send the box in......hey wait a min....I bought and own this I ain't sending dump back to you I OWN it. 
    • Really great colors there now and butterflies by the thousands. get there if you can. Headed over for 2 hours today. Heres a few pics. Pics from Munsinger
    • Plus+1 last weekend got into a good bite in about 31-35 feet and they were all full of Minnows.
    • @Tom Sawyer   Any idea what this is with the painted lady?  Only saw this one at Munsinger.  Really a beauty. 
    • Thanks Juneau.... Just an FYI to everyone - HH is my account
    • Interesting take via Judd Sulgad on the Koivu Signing:   Perhaps most galling about all of this is Michael Russo of The Athletic tweets there is a no-move clause in Koivu’s extension. Why on earth would Fletcher agree to include a no-move clause in an aging player’s contract? It’s bad enough when you give a no-move clause to a productive player who suddenly hits the cliff but in Koivu’s case there was no reason to do this. Heck, there was no reason to give him any type of extension in the first place. He also was entering the final season of a seven-year, $47.25 million contract that will pay him $5.4 million in 2017-18. Allowing Koivu to play out that contract made perfect sense. If he had productive 2017-18, he might be brought back but there also was the potential that his money could have been used on a younger, more attractive talent. Koivu is coming off a productive 2016-17 season in part because he was able to move from first- to second-line center playing behind 32-year-old Eric Staal. Koivu had 18 goals and 58 points and was a plus-27 in 80 games, spending much of the season with Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker on his wings. Like many Wild players, Koivu didn’t do much in the Wild’s five-game first-round playoff loss to the Blues. He had one goal, one assist and was a minus-1. All of this set up Koivu with the opportunity to return this season and prove he could remain a productive and durable player. When it came to Koivu’s contract, the Wild finally was in an ideal spot. That is no longer the case. Instead, the Wild has Koivu locked up for three more years and, thus, put themselves right back in the type of salary-cap situation they should be trying to escape.
    • Thats the way I ran mine.  One run of AC comes from the converter, and one run terminates in a male plug that goes into my inverter.  That outlet run is dead unless I am running it off my inverter but I just split the couple outlets I would need behind the TV and one other spot and it seems to be working flawlessly so far.  I can watch Dish TV without firing up the genny if I want.  Only time I would really do this is during a hot bite to minimize noise.  Outside of that, just let er run.
    • I guess we'll see in 8/9 months if he's worth $6 Million.....my point is they could have waited and resigned him in the off season for less...he never would have gotten that elsewhere...never...just leaving money on the table that could be spent more wisely elsewhere IMO.  Surpirsed he hasn't extended Parise/Suter for another 5 yrs at $9M/yr beyond the 10 he already signed them for   
    • I'm guessing that worms and crawlers wash into water systems after storms. So they are not totally foreign to being found in the water. Deep mudflats? Doubt it. But I do target storm sewer outlets on lakes shortly after rainfall with some success using natural colored rubber worms for bass. And have caught an occasional walleye while doing so.
    • Just relaxing and bobber fishing with the Mrs while camping up north 10 days ago, had decent sized suckers on. Had 8 suckers left for the evening bite. Found where some smallies seemed to be stacked. Two 18"ers, two 19"ers and what looked to be a 20" smallmouth that got off boat side.  A 23" walleye decided to get in on the fun, had a snip off and lost a fish in the weeds 25' feet down. Those were some productive minners. Bringing more next year. A nice double and my wife's new personal best bass. 19"
