      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 .

Hi guys!! I see you're holding the fort down nicely! I am already up at the cabin since I took both Thurs & Fri. off. It's really nice up in Deer River. It's supposed to be around 79 degrees tomorrow and then high 80's Sat and Sun. HOT!! We'll get some fishing in and will report back how we did. Have a great July 4th everyone! laugh

Can you go over and mow the yard, while your up there. Never mind just did last Saturday during the hurricane.

Lisa please catch some fish this time.

I would give you the hot spot we caught them at last weekend, but I am sure Jim has a few already.

Have FUN

G.C.

Lisa,

I'll be in Walker this weekend. We are planning on going up to Sand Lake on Friday, but not sure what time.

We will be in Grand Rapids on Saturday afternoon for a birthday party.

Drop me an email and let me know if you will be around.

I'm sorry I wasn't checking the forum this weekend!

We had some friends from the cities up this weekend. We fished everyday but with only minimal success. I caught one 22" walleye on Friday and multiple tiny bass and sunnies on Saturday but no keepers! It's so hard to go back to work after a great weekend isn't it? frown

I never wet a line this weekend. I spent Friday weeding the garden, hitting a flea market, and visited a friend who recently had knee surgery. Saturday drove down to Mora, visited my sister, walked around her garden for 2 hours, went to Menards in Cambridge, loaded 120 patio bricks and 10 bags of mulch on my trailer and headed back home. Sunday more weeding (haven't touched my gardens this year, they looked like jungles) spread the 10 bags of mulch and then crashed on the yard swing for about an hour. Now that the weekend crowd is gone home I will hit the lakes during the week. On Saturday I passed Knife Lake, and you couldn't have squeezed a mo-ped into the parking area at the public access. My friends lake was full of jet skis and big power boats racing around. Even they weren't planning on going out. I hope everyone else had a safe and very fun filled weekend.

We fished a lake by the cabin on Saturday and there was ALOT of traffic on it. Barb, I'm just so darned envious of you. I can't wait for the day I can get out on a nice quiet Monday to fish. We fished Winnie on Friday and it was absolutely DEAD! We got a prime spot at the access and only about 10 boats on the mid lake humps. There was maybe 4 boats in front of Highbanks.

I left on Thursday evening and got to Park Rapids around 9pm. On Friday I tried to get some fishing in but helped the youngest neices and nephews fish instead. Thought about doing some night fishing after the fireworks but was tired. Saturday after an all day party I tossed a sucking minnow out and caught a nice large mouth bass (pictures soon.) Sunday helped the kids fish again and tried to get a fish with weight for my middle neice because she wanted to catch something big, but no luck. I left one of my fishing poles for her to use and try to catch a big one. Had fun with the kids but wished I could have caught more myself.

I am now working 11 hour days for this week because my boss has the week off. Maybe I will get out this next weekend?

Hope

    •  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.  
    • I have two huge bags of shelled pecans and walnuts from Xmas that won't be used anytime soon and was wondering if I can feed these to birds and what species of birds would eat them
    • Well, it’s been a few more days. Cardinals are eating it, but they don’t seem to prefer it. Must be a lower quality seed, perhaps? I’m only getting 1 or 2 cardinals now, as opposed to the 10 to 12 I was getting before. Also not getting the sunset feeding frenzy anymore. The redpolls love it though. Anyway, do you guys do anything to help prevent sunflower shell messes, or do anything to clean them up, or do you just deal with the mess?
    • I noticed lately most tire shops have and use torque wrenches instead of just relying on impacts like they used to. Probably a liability thing. Keep in mind a lot of shops employ high school kids part time which is good because they know everything at that age. I had a shop years back put on lugs so tight it ruined the rims and lug nuts. Breaker bar is also a handy tool as well as the BFH
    • Congrats huckfin!!! It was a crashfest! Now to the real racing.
    •   It may be that they knew the folks up there needed a little extra help because they couldn't get the Righty tighty-Lefty loosey deal down. So, they had to make special trucks just for the Yukon Territory?  
    • Couple things to keep in mind. Various wheels will require varying torque settings and it should be ON the wheel, or in the owners manual. If you are in a shop make a point of TELLING them what torque settings you want used on your tires/wheels. And of course big difference if you have steel or cast aluminum wheels.  Years back, believe it or no, some Dodge trucks would tighten turning LEFT and then on the other side they would tighten turning RIGHT!  You need not ask me how I know this but it all took place in the middle of the Yukon Territory.
