      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 .

Yup...that's one crazy kitty. It was caught by Big Shanon B...The SumoHunter. Fought well, and just about made me jump back when I seen it. Looked like something out of the movie Alien.

Wow, that is goofy looking. Darren and I had a somewhat goofy-headed channel cat in the boat the other day but it wasn't ANYTHING near that goofy! That's neat, thanks for the cool pics.

That's the second mutant I have seen this year. I caught a pike with a head that was angled downward. Yours is much more prominent though. What a cool fish, thanks for sharing. Maybe we'll see a subspecies evolve out of it.

That by far is the wierdest cat I've ever seen.

It is straight out of Dr Suess, or the Simpsons.

Thanks for sharing.

Some type of trauma when very young is likely the reason for this malformation. I have seen catfish with broken backs that grow to 20 plus pounds, and shaped live a V, and yet hearty as a hog. Just go's to show you how adaptable and tough they are.

    • 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.
    • That's what I had to do to get the tire off.  Not the type of thing you're likely to have handy when you get a flat away from home.
    • A trick my grandfather taught me was using a long tube. Usually a 2-4ft long peice of pipe. He never had an impact so this was as close as having one. Take a big socket wrench then slide the wrench in the pipe and the pipe acts as leverage and I have a peice of pipe hanging in my garage right now just for this reason and I have NEVER not been able to break something free with this method. A little tip I wanted to share.
    • those things are poorly equipped to deal with a MN winter.   
    • I have them periodically.   They look like the world's biggest rat.    And they poop all over my low platform feeder.   
    • Long standing problem.   I recall breaking a 3/4 craftsman socket trying to get a tire off a 68 vw in the 70's.   I don't know if retorqueing them upon returning from the tire shop is good enough or not.  
    • Thanks guys, it would all be during day light and only a couple miles the rest in the ditch. Good idea wanderer on the reflectors. No damage would be done so I think it would be alright.
