      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 .

Not sure how long they will hold, but I have put some short sheet metal screws into the lugs before and it worked very good on the ice, plus they are cheap. Slime works for some things, but I try to avoid it because it makes a huge mess if you want new tires. Also, make sure you put some screws in the front tires also, so you can steer.

I've been putting in 3/8" sheet metal screws for years, holds up very well. I should also add I don't drive very fast, maybe 5 MPH tops.

I bought a huge lot of sheet metal screws (studs) from Dennis Kirk few years ago. There's enough in there to last for quite a few years. I've been putting them in my tire lugs for the past three years. They work GREAT! You'll need to replace them every year because they get worn down.

The thing I like about the studs is that you can ride full throttle across the lake and not have to worry about tire chains breaking and shreading up your fenders.

You will want to put them in all four tires.

No more studs this year, I bought tracks for my wheeler.

I put screws in my dirt bike tires and it was unreal the traction that thing had! On frozen dirt it was unreal! Studs dont last long on dirt though. I think im going to try it on my Vampires this winter.

hahahha!!

I'll place some pics on here soon. If I can figure it out?

I bought the new model of the Prospectors. They are made specifically for Polaris.

You really don't lose any horse power, but you do lose top end speed. Going through about 10" of powder this weekend, I could get about 40-45 mph. Now I think on hard pack it should be much better.

I bought them from Hitching Post (Hopkins)

40-45mph on the speedo or GPS? Your speedo is going to be way off with the tracks isnt it?

Yea, your probably right.

It definitely doesn't go as fast as it does with wheels, but you make up for with out the spinning.

    • Yeah baby!!!  Huge congrats to both of you.  Look at that smile!  Great work dad and great work son!!!
    • On Saturday my boy got his first crack at a bird.  We walked in and had nothing close, but must have been in their way to whatever they were going to.  An hour later and he had his first turkey. 18.3 lb. 1/2 inch spurs 9 3/4 inch beard  HUGE smiles Proud dad   The bird gave us a heck of a show and came within a step of brushing the blind.   We also made it back to cook up Maple Syrup with the rest of the crew at thew cabin.
    • Well hopefully today is the last of the Fernando Rodney experiment. 
    • that is certainly a dream!  
    • Atta way, Cheetah!  Congrats!!!
    •   WTG Cheetah!  They still give you two tags each out there?  Still hunting, or coming home early?     Stick with it PFunk, once that hens slips away he'll come back lookin' for some plastic love.  
    • And on a day where i am kicking myself for not bringing the DSLR, why wouldn’t a nice bearded hen come by just outside the window...
    • Working on punching dad’s archery tag and had this guy hang up at 40 yards for a good half hour outside of his comfortable shooting range. Had 4 jakes on the decoys earlier trying to breed them but the tom stayed out at about 60 with a live hen. Fooling the big boys with the bow is proving to be a challenge. Wow is it fun and frustrating as hell at the same time. 
    • Brother and I doubled this morning in my shortest Black Hills public land hunt ever...   3 hours from time of leaving the car.      Parked the car and had turkeys gobbling on the public side of the road right where we planned to go.   Two gobblers dropped down into the field in front of us at first light and bred a hen right there.   They almost came in to us once the hen left them, but changed their mind and walked over the hill to the rest of the flock.  After a couple hours of cat and mouse we managed to get in front of them and after one close call with a blow down in the way had a second chance and were able to take both gobblers at the same time.   37yd shot for my brother, and 44yd shot for mine.   
    •   I see a pattern I hate to see from any player....Granlund in the last 2 seasons combined: April 2G/3A   Playoff Totals last 2 yrs combined 1G/4A    Those are terrible end of year stats for any player...I just think he is too small and plays even smaller...when the going gets tough he disappears..he probably is just worn out come late in the season and we need players who can step up when we need them most.
