      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 .

They have it figured out.

My brother-in-law and I went to northern Wisconsin to do some ATV trail riding, because after a long search, Minnesota could not compare to the camping on a route and accessibility.

All I can say is they have it together, we spent Friday evening and almost all of Saturday logging a couple hundred miles on some of the best trail I have ever rode on.

I will be back to Wisconsin to ride again.

Most of the the riding we did was up by Iron River and in the Chequamegon National Forest and Bayfield County Forest.

What I really liked was being able to set-up camp, we had his RV and leave right from where we camped, ride on a few tar roads to get to the trails, no hassle, no hustle.

Wisconsin really caters to the Snowmobile/ATV riders, I really wish Minnesota would look at doing the same, why can't we use the same trails in the summer the snowmobile's use in the winter?

Not the ones the cross private property, I understand that, no crops in the winter, so-on.

I know there is alot of snowmobile clubs that maintain trails, but why not open up our National forest and use the fire trails to ride ATV's on and link up to used snowmobile trails to cover ground.

Seems to me this is helping out the Bars and restuarants in sconie, why not try to bring some money back to minnesota?

It really would be nice to be able to actually ride my wheeler. Seems like to much of a hassle to drag it up north or go to wisconsin this year. Plenty of snowmobile trails along the mn river that would be fun to ride if the dnr would let us.

The dnr is stopping us only to protect our sport. It's the 'anti's' who shut everything down for us.

MN and Wisconsin atv associations joined forces a few years ago to get more trails opened in both states. My personal feeling is that MN has too much wetland, lakes, and rivers. This makes it real tough for our people to get through the red tape to make trails.

Yes, MN is way behind, but there have been more trails added in the last 10 years or so than I first thought.

WI DNR raised the price for the Non-Resident trail pass from $18 last year to $35 this year. I think MN needs to start charging Non-residents so we can get a little extra funding from those who come to play here.

I wouldn't expect too many to come from the east. grin

MN has a long way to go to get to the level of the WI trails, but they're working on it.

Yeah, Wisconsin has better trails, a better football team, and better laws. Minnesota on the other hand, caters to snowmobiles, and charges way to much for licensing on atv's.

    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon.
