Hey Cjac, when my dad logs in all he has to do is move the cursor (hand) over the post (subject) and it shows a preview (the first several lines or image) of that post, but it doesn't do that on mine when I log in. Do you know how I can add that feature? Thank you.

Hunter

Hunter- I drove past you and your dad with your rig right before the bridge of the mississippi river before Little Falls last night... how was the fishing?

I think you need to update your browser or plugins. Something like media flasher or something. Some computer savy folks will know.

Do you use IE or Firefox?

I'd recommend the latter, or google chrome. Either way sounds like you need an update.

Either need an newer windows operating system or updated web browser I would guess. I know that feature doesnt work on my older computer.

before my last computer went out i had windows XP and that did'nt work. the new computer has vista and now it does. so i'm leaning toward what the other guys said. but if you do change keep in mind your other equipment might not work. i.e. printer, fax, scanner etc. one of the things that angered me about vista. and the fact that sending certain places/people e-mails is a pain.

Actually that is part of this forums software. The setting should be in your profile "My Stuff". It is user unique so make sure the settings are correct.

You can turn that feature on or off.

I knew it was a profile/preference setting but couldn't find specifically where it was at.

Under the "My Stuff" menu, click on "Profile", about halfway down the Profile menu is this setting:

Show Tooltip (1-yes, 0-no)

This is the setting that controls it, 1 for if you want the preview and 0 for no preview when you "mouse" over stuff.

Thanks Hanson, I knew it was there, but I can't do that at all on this computer because of the Java restrictions.

    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
