      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 .

Yepper... after 3 months of long waiting (Which was worthwhile anyways) I finally got my two Pro Edge 8'6 Edge Series rods home!!!

Only if I was Wolverine and my hand healed up quickly... June 7th couldnt come any quicker... I'll be sure to post up one or two pics of the rod when I get the reels on... gonna be sweet!!! Only need to decide which lure to throw out first...

MANY thanks goes to Keith of Pro Edge... Those two rods definitely would be my mainstay rods for 2008...

Reb,

Those rods are soooo nice, congrats! Money well spent, like a wand in hand.....really it's hard to describe how light and powerful they are. They will kick muskie bu "double TT".......

I'm leaning on KT to get a bass rod done for me by this weekend! Can't wait!

Oh yeah Chris... they're very much more lighter than the rods I used last year...

I did bring along two Strike Reaction Rods along so Keith could change the tips (but naturally he forgot the kit... shows how BUSY he is... grin ) and I compared both SR rods to one Edge rod and its very much noticeably lighter...

Hope you dont mean "breaking his hand" mafia-style when you're referring to "Leaning on KT" grin He did mention that hes still 3 months behind... and from what I can remember... that would mean he would be unable to fish as he'd have no rods... He said he wouldnt build his own rods til hes caught up on fishing... and god knows some of us would love it if we could go fishing with him this year...

I've got a 8'6" Dback medium supposed to be ready next week, too! I was hoping for the GLoomis but they couldn't get the blanks in time to be finished by my arrival.

I'll be picking up a couple Taloras, too wink

Thanks guys.

I will have another couple weeks of building with my boat in the shop. Been a crazy year. Make sure you order in the fall for next year if you are interested.

I do have some new bass sticks that I need to put on the water for some R and D.

    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer 
    • 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.
