      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 .

****2008 World Series Tread****

Recommended Posts

As we are getting closer and closer to the series, we might as well get the ball rolling.

Who are you looking to get there. I hope its a Boston LA show.

Best if it were Phillidelphia/Tampa Bay. That way we wouldn't have to listen to any Manny stories.

The real story would be if it were LA and BoSox because then you would have a megasuper star (Manny) having his total salary being paid by the team (BoSox)he was trying to beat! Now that would be a story.

Exactly Windy. I made that observation to my wife last night and she thought it would be a great idea. Would make for some decent drama. Imagine Manny hitting a homerun at Fenway for the Dodgers. I would rather see a Rays - Dodgers WS though.

Don't really care about the Senior Circuit but I would not mind watching the Rays go for it. Anybody but an east coast team, and by east coast I mean BoSox or Yankees!

Nice not having the Cubs in the mix,,, they get jammed down my throat in IA. Then again,, been 63 years since they have been in the WS,,, maybe next year?? I think not.

I'd like to see LA play agst Boston and get shut out 4-0 in another show of the dominant league. Even Tampa,, not so sure they can shut out the NL.

Their is a reason Manny hit .396 in the NL. no pitching, no closers,,, Lidge will blow a big one.

Only reason I would pull for LA is Torre,, NY let a great one go.

As long as the Rays go to it I don't care who comes from the NL. The Rays deserve it and have been the best baseball team all year, excluding the Angels, look where they're at now. I'm soooo sick of Boston/New England sports! I think it's pretty cool Joe Torre is back in the Championship series with a different team.

I could care less who is in it as long as it is a sweep: the games are always a treat to watch, but the fewer innings I have to listen to Buck and McCarver, the better.

That one over the monster- soon as it hit the bat I knew it was gone. Had to have gone at least 450+

Man is Tampa looking tough in these playoff's.. I can see a Tampa - Phillies WS and Tampa wining the whole thing. They are going to be a very good team for years to come.

Will the owners keep the team together? Remember, the Florida Marlins have done the same thing twice now, and both teams were pretty much disbanded the next season. I hope they keep these guys together, sick of Yankees/Red Sox every season

the owner of the Marlins purposely put the 97? team together to win a championship and disband them to sort of stick it to MLB if I do recall............I do not think the Rays ownership would get rid of these young talents when most of them are not even up for arbitration let alone the free agency market!

I hear FOX is worried about a Philly / Tampa Bay series. Won't be able to get their coveted 25 share without one of the huge market teams involved. cry

    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • 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...
