      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 .

Fishing Shirts

Recommended Posts

Just letting people know that a Columbia Sportswear shop opened up about a month ago in the Outlet Mall at Albertville. I found cargo shorts from $7-$10 and Performance Fishing Gear Tops and Bottoms, with SPF 30 ratings, for 30-40. That's like 50% off the PFG stuff.

That's about all for Outdoor gear you can find around that outlet mall, but it made the trip for me!

FYI on GM in Fargo mens clearance clothing.

Lots of shirts and shorts now clearance as low as $4.97. Bigger sizes tend to vanish first so act quick if your a big or tall guy.

THey had some, not alot, of xxl's, and a lot of xl's, but I did not see any 3xl. What I can say is that a xxl is a VERY large xl. I am 260 and 5'11" and the xl fit me great, and I usually take xxl. I got one xxl and it is very roomy, slopy roomy even. So the xxl might work like normal xxxl. They are nice shirts smile

was there last week and picked up some of the roll up sleeve fishing shirts and zip out pants. XXL was the biggest I saw. The roll up sleeve shirts were going fast. The pants were $30 and the shirts $30 I think. I got some other fishing shirts for $30 that were usually $60 as well.

Mesh boat shoes and slip on loafers were like $30 as well. Some good deals in that store. If your a XL or smaller you will find more than I did and I spent about $300 on me and my wife. crazy

Northlander you are a fashion role model wink

Me a fashion role model? Now thats a funny one. Unless you count flannel as fashionable.

I have never owned any fishing specific clothing before so this is new to me. Some of the colors are to bright and would draw too much attention so I stuck to browns and tans. Only the bass guys like to be seen and heard on the water. grin

Biggest thing is hopefully I wont be so hot and more comfortable in the boat now. I dont care so much about the looks.

Box, do you know if they had real fat guy sizes, like the 3XLT or 4XLT?

Have you ever tried Cabela's online. They often have their shirts on sale and they carry all the way up to 5XLT. I buy most of my hubby's stuff there.

Yeah, I am no model, ha! But I will say, the coloered shirts look really nice in picutres of fish, I have a couple of my brother with nice walleyes when he had an orange shirt on, and it looks way nicer than my picture with a black shirt on. But that aside as well, these "fishing shirts" really help to keep you cool with that venting on the back, and they dry out really fast, which is nice on windy or wet days.

I need to get a couple long sleeved ones, to help with flies and skeeters. I do like the tan ones, but the blue makes my eyes sparkle, ha! cool

    • I can recall,   farther back than you think, of running into one now and then and finding one inn a trap from time to time. And this was MORE than fifty years ago,  so they've been around a while. Maybe just an uptick in the population in southern MN.
    • For any of you that have ever had a desire to do any sledding in the Black Hills... This is definitely the year to do it. This is by far the most snow that I have seen out there. On most years, you can get lucky to ride either the Northern or Southern hills... This year both are awesome and the meadows are full! I am hoping to get out there once more before the end of the month.
    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • 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
