      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 .

I am a Veteran, but I too would like to thank all that have served, are serving, and those who will serve. And of course all of the ones that didn't come home.

Thanks for the post Powerstroke. Our Veterans and Troops now serving need our support.

They have the utmost respect from me. I received a physical disqualification or I would have given my service as well. I've found other ways to serve locally and that's what keeps me happy.

Thank you to all the service men and women!!

I need a smiley or emoticon with an american flag waving!

I called my most of of my family members who served. Interesting that I have family who has served in WWII, Vietnam, and the second gulf war. Weird when you put it in that perspective.

Take the time today, and everyday to show your support for those who put their lives on the line for you and for policies they don't necessarily agree with.

Not just today, but everyday. There are plenty of depreciation acts out there that are just insulting to Americans and particularly to veterans. What the GOP did to Kerry in '04 should never be forgotten or forgiven.

well, i see the partisanship cannot even be put aside to thank our vets crazy

I mean, jeez, there is a time and place to argue how eeevell the GOP is and how pure and just the DNC is but not on a thread thanking those who sacrifice and to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice

God bless the troops!!!!

Practically all of my family served, father, uncle, brother, cousins, husband, father-in-law who was highly decorated, and countless friends. While I have not always agreed with the wars and military conflicts we have fought in, I have nothing but the highest respect for those who have served. Thank you.

I, too, would like to say thank you to all who have served. flagemot2.gif

From my step-uncle who was killed in Vietnam, to my brother who is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and is currently an instructor at West Point, we have had a few family members serve in the military during times of conflict. We are thankful every day for the sacrifices they have given so that we can live in freedom.

Thanks to all of my fellow veterans.

I was involved in 3 flag folding ceremonies on Veteran's Day at three different elementary schools.

At each one the kids stood to sing the national anthem and a couple of other patriotic songs. Afterwards, without fail, at least one of the children made a point to stop and say thank you and get a "high-five"! The beaming smile on those little faces when we took the time to say a simple hello served as a reminder of why we chose to give a piece of our lives to protect this nation.

Thanks again to my fellow veterans, thos past, present, and future.

And may God Bless America and her heroes!

    • When doing a Repo it's best to have some good pictures for them to try and copy. Part of the issue is they make a lot of their fish off molds they have made over the years of different size fish.  Not sure if they have to make a new mold if the cost will be more? That is why I have never had one done of this 36" inch Laker I caught and released a few years ago. It was really long but thin and all the molds the two company's I talked to had were big bellied Lakers from like Canada that didn't look anything like it. So I just didn't want to spend about $5-6 bills for a fish that didn't look much like the one I caught.  
    •   Thank you sir, I will check them out.   Phone pic of a disposable camera pic. Wish I would have got a little more detail. At sunset, lighting was bad.   Oct 21st bass. Big mouth and head, belly was not oversized, but it was a tall fish all the way back. No weight, but I am guessing it cracked 7 lbs.   I remember reading a couple years later after Mark Raveling broke the state record, and he said a 7 lb bass in MN is a once in a lifetime fish.   I now tend to agree with him.      
    • I just had to wiggle mine back and forth. The tolerances are pretty tight so it is not hard to bind it up. You should not have to use much force at all. I agree the design is so stupid and high maintenance. My next one will probably be with a torsion axle. Did you buy this from a dealer? 
    • I don't know anything about these but if you can put some heat to it , it might help
    • Not sure how the hell you guys “just slide it off!” It took me a good hour just to take off the metal retaining ring, this darn house is only 3 years old!! But after taking the ring off the axle doesn’t budge at all, tried jacking it up with a floor jack and it just flexes the stub it rests on. Pulling feels like trying to pull a 75 year old oak tree out of its roots; I soaked it with penetrating oil before calling it quits tonight; my last resort now is itll break and I’ll get some sort of wiggle room with the axle otherwise I put everything back together, pump it with grease and jack it up and down until it gets free?   Otherwise I’m going to have to bring it in and there’s another $200   i told the wife I’m ready to sell this PITA after only having 3 weeks with it; the axle design is the worst, why would they expose everything to the salt? Frustrated as you can tell...
    • SG is a 2013 with about 4K miles on it. 
    • Congratulations,those are some great birds
    • Thanks for the insight, I will purchase some tubes for the crab apple and plum.
