      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 .

We will be back home in Northome hunting with the family. The kids will also be going out again this year in Grandpa's Mansion! grin

Last year I had my daughter out hunting in it and she fell asleep for about an hour, woke up and asked any deer yet, I said NO, then she fell back asleep. Little did she know I took a picture of here deer hunting at age 8 and sleeping.

THat is what it is all about people, getting the kids involved and seeing the smile on the wife's face when she shoots another big buck! Thanks to me giving her my stand that I had for years and being very successful. Eventually it will go to one of the kids so they can have a successful hunt and hang a deer on the wall!

Sign looked good last weekend and can't wait to go up and get the camera to see what is around the new stand we built last weekend. Dad is starting to get out of the old ways and listen to the younger generation a little! whistle

Good luck this season and be safe!

Woodman,

Way to go!

I'm looking forward to spending the opener in the Fifty Lakes area. We are going up tomorrow to set a couple stands and look around a little - then maybe a little duck shootin!

I finally got my self interest out of the way early this year with my two archery does and have a late South Dakota hunt planned where I can concentrate on a nice buck.

I'm stoked that I can completely concentrate on my two girls getting the best season I can give them this year. The oldest is looking for her first buck and the youngest has been working on her bow skills. She's not ready to take a deer yet, but we can go through the motions this season to get her prepared for next season.

We'll see how it all works out. smile

tednugefan,

I know where you are then. That is some nice deer country and it is a totally a different hunt then most people get in Minnesota. My buddies hunt farms, push small wood acres and get plenty of deer. Where we are it is the "Big Woods" and while my buddies know which deer they are going to shoot it is not like that up there. My buddies laugh at the 8 pointers I shoot because they say you should wait for bigger. I get that but my last 4 deer have been really nice bucks especially for public hunting. I hunt actually north of Fairbanks. You probably know where just don't want to say where on here but near the big lake with no public access but by ATV down a Forestry Road where people catch walleyes. On the buck board look for the same name twice (Dad and I have the same name). Last year I shot an 8 pointer 188 pounds. Big deer most places but like 50th place up there! My dad shot a 9 pointer 209 pounds and did not even break the top 20! My brother was 1 pound from the average wt. deer.

    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions? 
    • Gobbler down...
    • Even with all the snow gone, they still dont want to come out in the fields. Even this morning i really got on the slate, this one come in at 640. Now im cayching brown trout. Good luck fellas
