      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 .

My step-sisters husband has been waiting for a new kidney for a long time now, found out this morning that a match was found and he is in surgery as we speak. Otto has Alports disease and that causes kidneys to fail. I am excited for their family but also ask those of you that believe in prayer would pray for Otto as he is in surgery and for a great recovery.

Thanks,

Hope

Prayers to him and family. I lost my uncle in September. He was awaiting a Double Lung transplant. On top of the list for about 14 months. He had Cystic Fibrosis. I know what its like. Praying for a successful surgery and speedy recovery.

Sending out mucho prayers, for him and his family. I just found out an old friend is on dialysis for kidney failure. He is a diabetic so I don't think there will be any transplants. I have been signed up as a donor on my DL for the last 25 years, although now that I am a diabetic I don't know if they can use anything.

Here is an update, surgery went well and the kidney pinked up right away. There is still some bleeding which will hopefully stop soon. Urine output is a little low but will hopefully improve. Prayers should also go out to the donor family who lost a 7 year old boy yesterday but save many other lives with their donations. Thanks all.

Otto is not doing well he has pneumonia and is on dialysis and his kidney may be asleep or rejecting, he also has had to receive several units of blood. To say he is miserable is an understatement. One Dr. wanted to play the wait and see game while others want to do tests. Well the wait and see Dr. was told by my step sister that that is not an option, she is great when it comes to getting the best treatment for her husband. Thanks all for the prayers.

Otto is not good they had to remove the kidney. The sac around the kidney filled with blood and actually cracked the kidney. Since that surgey last night his heart rate has been too high and they have had to keep the breathing tube in and keep him sedated. Thay are trying to pull 10 pounds of fluid off him through dialysis and hope that will give the heart some relief. His pneumonia is a little better, so we have a tiny bit of good news. Thanks all for your care, concern and prayers.

Hope, I am so sorry Otto is not doing well. I went through a nightmare illness with my husband in 2003, I know how stressful this is for you and your step sister. Keep the faith, there are a lot of people pulling for Otto.

    • 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
