      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 .

Recommended Posts

Fellow Ice show attendes, looking for a little help. I did not pick up any info on the 4 wheeler that was equiped with tracks. I am looking for info on the track system that was on the 4 wheeler located by the stage. I have looked on line for them and can not find any that look like them. Can someone help me out?

Thanks

fishingmedic,

If you are talking about the Tatou4S tracks. I hope this is ok to post the name of the company....Camoplast....they are a four season track, light weight, and should be a blast to use.

somethingfishy ~ Looks like you have tracks on a atv? What size do you have? I was thinking that you would need a bigger 4 wheeler with the tracks as you stated, but according to camoplast web site they fit the drive wheel based on your model and cc for power and speed is that the case or not?

I am running an 800 Sportsman. I had a 500 and there was no power to pull you thru anything more than a few inches at about 5-15 mph.

I don't know about the Camoplasts as I have the Polaris OEM tracks which are designed for my machine.

With your current set up I am guessing that you have no problems with power or speed?

None that I have found...... yet.

When cruising across the lake if you hit a slush pocket you can definetly feel the little bit of drop and a light reduction in speed, feels kind of like bogging down although the machine has not done so.

Did some plowing with it yesterday for the first time with tracks and the new plow setup (designed for use with tracks) and I must say I was impressed with the snow this thing would push and drive up over with the plow. I don't really need this for plowing my driveway in town but is sure is alot of fun.

If your ever in my neck of the woods I would be more than happy to meet up and let you take a look.

I would like to get a mini get-together/ride for those of us with tracks to check out others brands of tracks and machines to see how they function and the differences in handling, power, etc. I currently have only ridden with other Polaris's with tracks.

Here are a few links to topics regarding tracks over in the ATV forum:

I know there are a few others also in the ATV forum, I only went back 5 pages.

Here is a reply that I got from a site that tests and reviews ATV tracks when I asked if the 4s would work with mid sized wheelers.

they work great,, camoplast makes them to work on a 350 ,, i have a 420 and 500 and they also work great,, as far as prfeormance, they will not go as fast a a 100 hp snowmobile but snowmobiles cannot follow us in the deep woods,, gary

    • the brown hounddog pictured above went in today to get fixed up!!!!!! wife should be able to pick her up about 3;30 today. sure stunk not being able to feed her this morning. the looks i got ........like what da he!!!!!!!!!
    • the missed call hasnt really bothered me, the wild should have retaliated after that but they seemed just lax about it. too bad they suspended him, just wish I was old enough to watch the playoff atmosphere of the 80's and early 90's. i thought by the end of the 3rd they would have tied it, I think the mix up lines helped change up the momentum, boudreau will need to pull some of this stuff tonight if they seem stale. I agree with Lung, Kiovu has not impressed me this year, his shootouts, his shots on goal just nothing special, just hope tonight they find a spark on the offense as we know those big boys on the Jets will be pushing them around tonight, too bad we dont have some more Folino's
    • I have the Cabelas 8'6" telescoping trolling rods in a med action I believe. Been using them for 4-5 years now. They work great for what you are asking. Although I have never caught striper on them, they work well for the walleyes up to 28". I think they collapse down to about 7'. Very reasonably priced.
    •   Is this some of your new Marketing idea's for the site Dave?
    • Snuck out today had one walk by 40 yards no shot ones gobbling at me across swamp making hos way now
    • If the refs call the game tight like they did in game 3, i think we come away with the W.  If they kind of turn a blind eye like they did in Game 4, the series is over.
    • Koivu has been pretty decent and our leading out team with 4 points but ya we just never find that next level. Our patchwork D hasn't been the issue, Stall hasn't produced like we needed him to and Nino, Coyle & Zucker have zero points between them. We needed our "depth" to score and they haven't. Coyle I think has been the best of him but he just isn't a goal scorer, has let numerous golden opportunities slip away. Hopefully the wild surprise tonight, otherwise its on Dubs to pitch a shutout and magically assists on the game winning goal. 
    • Saw that Morrisey is suspended for tonight.  Really too bad they missed the call during the game.  Should've been a 5 min major and a game misconduct.  Really would've changed the entire game IMO.  There are lots of times I wish Boogy was still around.   Staal needs to be checked for a concussion and Koivu needs to be checked into a retirement home.     Seems like we can pull up last years playoff and offseason threads and just ride that until October.  Same story, can't compete with a couple heavy blue liners and can't score.
