      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 .

The cabin sold... time to sell my baby!

2002 Triton 205

2002 Mercury Optimax 225 hp (low hours)

2002 Mercury bigfoot kicker 9.9 hp elec. start trim and tilt

MinnKota Maxxum 24v 74lb. trolling motor

Triton Trailer w/ bunks and reverse lights (great for night launching)

This boat is the driest / smoothest boat I've ever ridden in. It is phenomenol and really shines on the days you question about going out fishing. I was a die hard 'popular' aluminum v-hull owner for years and decided to try going glass... I'm not sure I will ever go back to aluminum. I typically run the boat at 45-48 mph @4500 rpm. I can do so even with a stiff 2' chop on the lake and never even have spray hit me. It will attain the low 60s mph if that is your wish. The boat is fully decked out and will need nothing to make it your dream boat... I just installed new cockpit electronics (almost $2000) last fall and had them professionally installed.

Oh man you dont know how tempting that is. I love those Tritons man! But I have to get a new truck before new boat. My Ford has 198,000 miles on it and I know it wont last too much longer.

Very nice boat and great price. You can tel you took pride in that boat. I cant see it lasting long at that price.

    •   Ufatz, not doubting a word you have to say, you are quite the colorful creator. The stories you have told over the years of trapping in the Yukon Territory. Living in a log cabin, driving old trucks with right and left hand lug nuts and fighting off Big Foot have been interesting to listen to.  To say the least. And now, you live in MN and drive a Mercedes Benz!  Hat's off to you're life sir.
    • Just make a point of telling the shop people to use a torque wrench and then tell them the value you want on your vehicle,  which you will have gotten from the manual. My Benz's have aluminum wheels for the most part and you can distort and ruin one it a Millenial Ape gets at them with a giant super powered wham-bam air powered wrench. I've found too many that know drugs,  not lugs.
    • Hey 3rd in the central and winning games on the road, we are certainly trending in the right direction at the right time of year. After some rocky starts to their careers Zucker and Granlund have really turned into some amazing players, like anyone they go hot and cold but I can't really say enough good things about them. Along with Staal they have really carried our offence this year. Hopefully in the next 20 games we can get some other guys going. Coyle can give us more, Nino looks a little off but it sounds like he is still fighting that ankle injury. Parise looks like his old self more and more but just not converting like he use to, hopefully that changes. I was against making a deadline move earlier in the year but if we keep this pace up we really could use another top9 winger, Ennis just isn't cutting it. Absolutely do not want to spend a 1st rounder on anyone at this point but if they can pick up someone decent on the cheap it might be worth it. We still have the majority of the team that was 2nd in the west last year and if they can play up a little closer to their potential there is not reason we can't make some noise in the playoffs in some kind of underdog fashion.
    • I went to the store in Woodbury a few times for reloading supplies and thought it was a good store. I like that format better than the upscale Cabela's model. 
    •  Did you grind them up a little bit or put them out whole
    • my moms got a lot of the gourd houses and them martins use them. one thing though..............once you have martins using the houses........... DO NOT  clean them out. clean out any holes sparrows or other birds use though!!!! i know starlings also like building nests in martin houses, just so u know!
    • I’m going to shoot for a 16 foot height. I was going to get a pair of martin decoys as well. Reviews say that, not only does it help attract martins, but can help deter other birds also. If things go well, I would add gourds below the house over time.
    • I sure hope Butler’s injury isn’t serious. Oklahoma is only 1 game behind us. Things aren’t looking good.
    • The pair of bald eagles on the Minnesota DNR Nest Cam are finally sitting eggs.  Looks like at least three again.
    • Don't worry, I'm plenty chill. dude.   Don't be a grom, hang loose, etc.
