      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 .

Wow, lots of stuff happening or allegedly happening anyway.

Stewart is supposedly announcing within the month that he is buying the Haas CNC team with Office Depot/Old Spice as sponsors. His teammate will be Ryan Newman with Jack Daniels on his car. UPS is moving from Mikey's circus to Bowyer's car.

As soon as Stewart makes his announcement everything should fall into place and contracts will be signed in a hurry. Cant wait to see where the cards fall.

What about DEI selling?

From Racingone.com:

"Already with sponsor General Mills in hand, Childress is reportedly speaking with Mears, Stremme and Martin Truex, Jr., who is not a lock to return to DEI for 2009.

In fact, Sirius Speedway reported this week that DEI owner Teresa Earnhardt is considering selling the team in part or completely, leaving more questions than answers at the operation."

a couple of years ago DEI with Jr and the Bud sponsorship, no one would had thought this scenario. Things are chganging fast.

This is a big part of it!

Teresa must be a very good owner if all of her drivers have either left or want to leave. I hope she sell to someone who will bring this team back to one of the top again. By the sounds of it there is a very interested party looking to buy.

News now is claiming the Stewart deal is a done deal and a press conference is forthcoming to announce he's out at Gibbs at the end of the year. MAJOR SHOCKER FOR HIM TO LEAVE THAT TEAM...

Not a good move for Stewart to leave that Toyota Horsepower. Now he is going to go to that team and waste his money. Oh well thats fine with me. Logano will jump his car next season and compete well.

Sorry Tony. You will be whining more next year.

Tony & JGR have officially announced that Tony will not be with them next year. They parted on good terms, and Zippy will stay with JGR. It sounds like there will be a official announcment of Tony's future plans (Hass ownership) at Indianapolis next week.

The sad part is that they make a BETTER PRODUCT. If they want people to Buy American then they would try and make the quality of the products equal to what Toyota makes.

Heck Chevy is as much Mexican as Toyota is Japanese now so I don't understand how some still think this way. It is silly.

Got this from Jayski.com, The deal is done!

Stewart Joins Haas to form Stewart-Haas Racing in 2009: During a press conference at Chicagoland Speedway Thursday, Tony Stewart announced that he is joining with Haas CNC Racing to form Stewart-Haas Racing in 2009. Some notes from the press conference:Stewart and Joe Custer, General Manager of Haas Racing, appeared together to make the announcment. Stewart said that owning World of Outlaw and USAC teams fed his interest in ownership in NASCAR. Ownership is now a side of him that he enjoys, that is important to him and that he wants to do the rest of his life Stewart was offered half of the team in the deal. He did not say if he purchased his half or if it was given to him as a part of the deal. A driver decision for the second car has not been made. The team is looking at who is available and will make a decision later. There were no sposnor announcements or car number announcements [stewart reportedly would like the #14 because it was A.J. Foyt's number]. There are no plans to move the team to Indianapolis. It's critical for NASCAR teams to be close to Charlotte.(7-10-2008)

Classic post from someone who has never owned one. How bout that "Check Engine" light. Lol.

Is the reason that the Camry is one of the all-time most reliable cars because they suck??

I buy plenty of USA made quality products but when it comes to a vehicle, unless they can improve it just is not happening.

    • my first Harley was a 1971 SG...  first year made, wish I still had it!!!
    • Get 'er done MM. Keep us posted.
    • There’s a nice stretch of warm weather. I just wonder if it’s enough to melt our local lakes by opener    Then the fish have to spawn
    • Got gobbles off the roost and they are now on the ground.
    • Allready hear them 
    • Thank you jets for stomping us, we clearly needed to be put out of our misery. 
    • When doing a Repo it's best to have some good pictures for them to try and copy. Part of the issue is they make a lot of their fish off molds they have made over the years of different size fish.  Not sure if they have to make a new mold if the cost will be more? That is why I have never had one done of this 36" inch Laker I caught and released a few years ago. It was really long but thin and all the molds the two company's I talked to had were big bellied Lakers from like Canada that didn't look anything like it. So I just didn't want to spend about $5-6 bills for a fish that didn't look much like the one I caught.  
    •   Thank you sir, I will check them out.   Phone pic of a disposable camera pic. Wish I would have got a little more detail. At sunset, lighting was bad.   Oct 21st bass. Big mouth and head, belly was not oversized, but it was a tall fish all the way back. No weight, but I am guessing it cracked 7 lbs.   I remember reading a couple years later after Mark Raveling broke the state record, and he said a 7 lb bass in MN is a once in a lifetime fish.   I now tend to agree with him.      
    • I just had to wiggle mine back and forth. The tolerances are pretty tight so it is not hard to bind it up. You should not have to use much force at all. I agree the design is so stupid and high maintenance. My next one will probably be with a torsion axle. Did you buy this from a dealer? 
    • I don't know anything about these but if you can put some heat to it , it might help
