      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 .

Thinking about a trip up to the big lake in September. Does anyone have any recommendations for resorts? There will be about 9 to 10 of us and will want to cook most of our meals. Just looking for insight. Thanks.

Bob's resort is where we've stayed before. Nice place with cabins and a steak house. Located on the river about 15 miles west of Gettysburg.

If you are going to be in the Mobridge area Bridge City Marina has Cabins that are nice. They also have some units that are like motel rooms, but I don't know if they are equipped for cooking.

Hey 1900,

I have a cabin that is located 30 minutes from the river. Totally furnished and ready to go. The only thing is it sleeps 6. SB

What part of the lake are you on? Funny thing is, my group is going, but I am bowing out because my wife is having a baby about then, or something like that. I can't believe she isn't letting me go fishing. grin

They are going to go up to the Akaska area in Mid October.

Hey guys, my older brother and I are entered in a small Walleye tourney on Oahe on August 9th and 10th. It starts out of Pierre. Any suggestions on bait, lures,tactics?? Since I live in the twin cities and he lives in Souix Falls, he and I only get to fish together once or twice a year, especially with the present gas prices. So any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Check the Tony Dean HSOforum. He gives fairly up to date info on the SD Reservoirs. I think the bite has been pretty good all year, so far. This heat may drive them a little deeper.

I'm actually on Spring Lake which is a half hour from Akaska..

Cool! The group found some house near the lake that some lady rents out. It is supposed to be pretty nice and was only going to cost each guy around 30 bucks a night. How is the ice fishing in that area? Since I am designated to stay home in October, my wife should feel sorry for me and at least let me go ice fishing this winter.

Ice fishing is fantastic if there is good ice! Last year we had a great ice pack so mobility wasn't a problem.. We'll keep our fingers crossed for this winter..

I think your wife should feel sorry for you!!!

    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer 
    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.    
    • A Tucan? If you break them up I don't see a seed eater passing them by.    Maybe bait for Late Season Squirrel.  
    •   Well you must be talking about my old-New Cat?   Tore it down and found a finger tight head bolt and loose carb boot bolt!  Someone at the Cat plant went to lunch a little early!! The cylinder is in the shop right now so it may be back on the lake fishing anyway yet this year?  High speed trails. May be not?
    •  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.
