      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 .

Hit something hard at the isle access and did a bit of damage to the ole prop and would like to see if it can be fixed or if i need to buy a new one. Any recomendations on a good prop shop somewhat close to Big Lake?

I went through a shop in east St. Cloud who does real nice work. They let me trial a number of props and repitched a prop for me a couple of years ago. Quality work and nice prices. I think they have a Sauk Rapids address, and they are located off highway 23 east behind the Hitchin Post. I don't want to mention their name in case they are not on the approved list of this site.

Feel free to post the name of the business. That's not a problem.

I'm guessing it's leading edge propeller?

You can also check into shipping your prop to Soderblooms. They have a pretty good turn around time.

Havent been able to get ahold of them yet(must be busy). What is the price range for having a prop fixed? I know it will be more $ but i was considering just getting a new one.

Not sure out there, but I went to Lances in Forest Lake it was $50. I think that's about the general price. You can spend three times that on a new prop. You could always get new and then get this one fixed and you would always have a spare.

Dakota, I have the very same motor on my 17 Angler SS. I found that the Yamaha props worked better than did the other brands. I trialed a couple of different ones and settled on the 17 (I think). I paid $75.00 for a fresh-made used Yamaha aluminum prop.

I took my 20HP Johnson prop to Leading edge and it was only 20-30, which didn't seem bad. Now I have to take my prop in for my new 25, more rocks...

Hit a rock hard this weekend on my I/O. Luckily it only took a chunck out of one blade. Since I pass thru Forest Lake daily, I'm going to give Lance's a try for the first time. Since it is only one blade the fix is only half the normal $50 charge.

With lake levels being so low (at least 10-12"+)- I think I'll be keeping my spare on until the levels come back up, or I wreck another prop - which ever comes first.
