      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 .

day blown to----

Had high hopes this morning about going fishing ---got all loaded and took off down the road --about 5 miles from home the truck started to loose power and then nothing. Lucky I was able to pull it off on to the side of the road and call someone to come and get me. Two trips later the trucks home and so is the boat.

I figure the fuel pump crapped out on me. Called the supply house and a new pump is $350++ plus labor. What a great start to a weekend. I haven't got my stimulus check yet but that should just about cover it. Hope,hope!!! You guys have a great weekend I think I'll be cutting grass instead of fishing.........

I know how you feel. Last sunday was one of those days. I got the boat to the landing the truck stalls on the ramp. Had to pull it on level ground to get it started. Though I did get the boat in the water.Parked truck got in boat and the boat moter would'nt run right after ten minnutes got it to run fine.Looked down a noticed short one life jacket. Luckily I live a block off the river 2 miles down river. Zipp down get life jacket then start fishing.Yep, trolling moter decides to only turn to the right.

Well, at the end of the day took boat out, truck ran rough but ran stopped at local gas station to get refreshmants. Then when leaving the truck dies in middle of the intersection. I figure out of gas (gas gage dont work) push truck to pumps tank was almost full. Then it hits me fuel pump went bad.After a call I finally got everyone home.

Boy when it hits the fan it hits hard.

At least I got out fishing and still had a good time.

I feel for you, Hopefully you will get the truck on the road real soon and get some fishing in

I thought I had a bad day yesterday dropping my $500 cell phone in the water. Luckily I have the insurance and it's only $50 to get a new one. I fell for you guys though, sounds like you had some harsh times.

Look on the bright side, 350 is alot cheaper then if someone rearended you while turning into the lake or while stopped on the road. Yeah, a day lost fishing and a bit of hassel but now you know the truck will run fine(not a fuel pump) and you'll get to your next destination. It is a drag when mechanical woes keep you from a much anticipated day out on the water but coulda ben worse. Hope all works out well for you!

Glad to hear things worked out for you. May the fish gods smile on your day on the water for the previous sacrifices you have made. I have a good feeling on this one!

    • It was 31 below zero when i found  this slush .This is only time I got stuck it was about 2 feet of slush .  I had to jack it out of the water and let it sit for a day half.  I had to hook  3 widetracks together to get it out. 
    •   Oh Shut Up Mike!!!!!!!!!!    Looks like a great time. Thanks for the Hope there is still white on this planet!
    • What the heck is everyone up to? I haven't checked in, in a while, figured I better throw leech a few pictures of some snowmobiling...... hasn't been much going on in our neck of the woods with the wind blowing everything into the grass or woods.   Anyone else been out west yet?   7 of us shot out to Cooke City a week ago ( Jan 10 ) and rode the BearTooth Pass / Top of the World Wyoming on Thrus, then headed for Cooke City Montana to ride Friday and Saturday. Met up with 3 more and we had one of the best deep powder rides ever!   Always a lot of work when you ride in the deep stuff but it's something you always wait for, got a good work out from getting stuck ALOT and helping out the others too. I believe the snotel site topped 102" of snow ( they actually topped 100" around new years too ) which is early for them to get that much snow but not all places out west are getting snow, our friend from Colorado said one of the ski resorts out there was only 25% open ...... good thing we didn't plan on going to Colorado riding this year!   I didn't bring a camera with so I had to rely on my buddies to supply a few pictures.   There were some meadows and bowls that were STUPID Deep with powder, dang near didn't make it out, had to be an easy 3 to 4 feet of powder back in them areas...... it was AWESOME!!!!   When you see this much snow in town, it's going to be GREAT up top!                        
    • Some of my cam pics this year. Still showing bucks with antlers in the last week or so. 
    •   Thanks for the offer but I'm not sure how much it will get used. If he shows and interest to get back out there then we'll look for a better solution.    And it was just old scrap plywood from the garage!  Geez you wood guys really get Grainy! 
    • you would swear it was homecoming week in all of our local schools here in rural central mn!  Most schools (businesses alike)here had Vikings day today.  I like everyone older than 30 has dementia and everyone younger doesn't understand our (vikes)history!   I will just sit and live on hope.
    • A season has always been a slam dunk for me.  Season B I am 2 for 3.  Seasons c-the end I am 2 for 2, young birds however. Weather is variable throughout, but i have killed birds in a heavy snow storm, rain and wind throughout the years.  Just scout and hunt, birds will tell you what to do if you listen.   Sometimes they lie though!   Pick the season that best allows you the time to be out the most.  Time in the woods and fields will equal the most success, this year and years going forward.
    • I would never subject my precious Cherry wood to that type of Carnage. But seriously- if you are going to use that thing I have a lowrance ice kit that I can send you if you want to cover s and h.  And if you have the older connector( not blue) I have an ice ducer I'll throw in for free. Just please, for the live of God promise you will never do something like that to wood ever again.
