      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 .

Looks like well over 12" but it has been blowing hard. "Winter Storm Warning" in effect until noon Monday. Predictions are up to 18". Temps 20 to 50 below zero in the next few days not including wind chill. No school Monday so the kids are bummed, or was that my wife?

Yeah Fargo said 8-14 but with the wind blowing at 40 MPH all day its really tough to tell it's been -10 as well...They closed down interstate 94 from Fergus all the way out to Jamestown (about 150 miles of interstate). Just really happy I haven't had to be out in it yet. Stay safe!

Hard to tell because everything is drifted so much, but I would guess it's 10-12"

Officially 9.5", but the driveway was drifted about 2 feet for most of it. Half the time it was over the top of the of the snowblower. Just got back in from 1 1/2 hours of blowing snow shocked

12" up by Mille Lacs confused

Funny how things can change in a short distance with the weather. Here in Princeton, maybe 4" and it was nice today and getting colder now, but still snowing a little. My buddy in Big Lake got almost nothing.

Maybe 6 or so around duluth but that wind keeps it blowing all over as others said...hopefully its not enough to keep that ice from getting thicker

In th Twin cities, today at one we had 42 deg. and by 4 it was 8 deg. and everything was a giant skating rink. now the snow is starting to acumulate. On Big Marine lake, the ice was covered with 1-2 in. of water and almost had white caps to boot.

Between 14" and 15" near I. Falls. 3 - 4' drifts now. Have a 1 ton plow truck. Plowed all the roads last night on the way to my plowing jobs as that's how deep it was on the main roads! Plow couldn't go up high enuf to stay out of the snow!

AWESOME!

LET IT SNOW

13"-18" near Marcell. I went out and took dome pics of what it looks like around these parts. I hope the plow comes soon. I have a Forestry Math Finale at 8:00am tomorrow morning.

    • 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...
