      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 .

Motorcycle is stuck in garage

Recommended Posts

Well I have my motorcycle in the garage. Have done nothing to is because up till a little over a week ago I was riding it. With the snow that we have now that is not gonna happen again for a while. I think that I am going to have to get a big quilt and cover the thing up though! Just hate to see it sitting there knowing that I can not get on her and go fer a ride. Dang, I love to ice fish but I sure do miss the bike as well. Might trailer our bikes down south in Feb to get some riding in though! That would be great! Any one else looking to do that? Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

My mom and dad snowbird every year to Florida. I've been telling myself the last couple of years to go visit them and bring the bike.

It bites right into my ice fishing, tho. I know I should take some time and go visit my folks, but a guy only has so much ice fishing time.

Boilerguy... I speak from experience when I say you have a lot more time left to ice fish than you do to go and see your parents. I would give anything to be able to go and hang out with dad one more time. Not preaching, I'm just sayin...

Both mine and my other half bikes have been sitting for most of the year (his broken down, mine well nothing wrong apart from I'm pregnant), I know how you feel to have one of your babies just sitting there my bike was and is still my baby I give her a pat every time I walk by her...poor thing lol...Now with the baby on the way I think it may be time to sell both of them and buy the sleeper fish house...I would love to take a ride down south one time before we make the decision to sell but that may need to wait till I'm not so preggo lol, If you go take some pics to share, its always nice to see happy riders.

Be safe and happy riding

Oh yeah... will get some pictures. Welcome aboard! Hope to hear from ya now and then! We were at the Yamaha dealer in Faribault last night. Looking to trade mama's 650 in on an 1100. She had test driven it before the weather turned bad and now she is just kind of waiting to see what the new 950's look like. Of course they don't have one of them yet but should soon. She just started riding this year and just loves it. The 650 never was a "keeper" bike just something used and in-expensive for her to learn on and figure out if she even liked it and now it is time to upgrade. They have a realy purdy 1100 Silverado sitting there. She wants to go to TX in Feb to see the middle son and we can get some riding in. Just need to find a covered trailer trailer to beg, borrow, or steal to haul them down there with. While kids are a 24X7 operation I could never be talked into selling a bike because we had one. Of course that is easy for me to say as we are now empty nesters! Still if nothing else ya have to get back and forth to work! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Thank you for the welcome smile

It would be alot of fun to travel south and ride till your hearts content or your iron butt has melted, especially when everyone in mn sits and stares at their baby locked up for the season.

It's nice to hear that your mrs loves to ride as well always nice to see other women out there enjoying it.

Riding is how me and my other half met,so riding is important to us since it has that memory factor to it, selling the bikes isn't something we wanna do but with the baby comming a wheelhouse would get more use then the portable soooo its a scream and a pull of the hair and a yell of what to do lol.

I wish I knew how to add pics here I would post some of the bikes we have, I have an 03 Yamaha Yzf R6 special edition, my other half has a 92 Kawi zx7 (she's getting old so thats why she aint workin to well right now).

Keep us posted if ya's get the new Yami smile

IceChicka,

in the phtography section, there's directions about posting pics. It's actually pretty easy. The other alternative would be to e-mail them to someone else to post them for you.

Unless you were on a machine like a KFX700 or a Can Am Renegade 800. Not as much power as a rocket, but definitely a thrill of it's own.

    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
    • This is a common misconception with LTIR. I too, thought it meant we "saved" money until I read up on it recently. What LTIR actually allows is for a team to go OVER the cap during a player(s) on LTIR, but once they return, they have to get back under the cap. So, true, it would allow them to spend more, but over the long haul it wouldn't be something they could go out and get someone to fill in without haven't to do something when the LTIR players return.
    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.
