      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 .

Da Bears, Giants might rest starters, but they won't lay down, not Coughlin's style. We just need to take care of our business in Houston and let the cards fall where they might. Lovey, showed a little emotion after Half Time, stating "which teams is vying for the playoffs", bout time. GO BEARS! I'm on midnights so I get to chide my boss all night.

Right now, the Vikes are the best team in the division. I hope they win it.

Chilly out? Why? I doubt it. He deserves to stay.

T-Jack out? Maybe. He has looked good lately.

I am a huge Vikings fan, but what is up with all the cry baby complaining Vikings fans. It feels like I am living in Green Bay or worse yet, Philly!

You got that right - DUH BUMs will be beaten by the Texans and we will beat the Giants.

We match up pretty good with the top two seeded teams in the NFC smile

I like Minnesota's chances. The Bears aren't a very good team and the Texan's are on the rise.

You guys get the Giants in the dome with nothing to play for, they should be resting a few key players and no Plaxico.

I believe NY will come to win. They remember quite well how week 17 helped them last year. Coughlin will only rest his players during their bye week of the playoffs. Just look what we did last year to the the Giants without Jared Allen or Berrian.

All we need to do is eliminate our turnovers and we have a team that can beat any other team.

We do have a nicked up Jared Allen, Gus Frerotte, and Bernard Berrian. We're also missing Pat Williams, Artus Hicks and our MLB E.J. Henderson but we won't make any excuses.

i also like the vikings chances as long as they give the ball to chester taylor more. i do not get why they leave chester out so much. a 1000+ yard rusher before AP comes and now they barely use him. i know most people here think AP is our best chance at winning, but i think they need to give the ball to chester more than just 3rd down. he is a stud just like AP, so mix it up. i would also like to say that shaincoe has found his hands lately, i think they were lost up his hind end early in the season.

Clutch block? Looked to me the kick was no higher than 6-7'.

Cmon it's a freaking chip shot! Also looked like all the Pack linemen layed down on the play. JMO wink HMMM Conspiracy in the NFL? Naw couldn't be.

Yikes should beat the G-men at home, If they can't, they don't deserve to be in the playoffs.

The bears have the biggest horseshoe up their [PoorWordUsage] that I have ever seen. That punt to start the 3rd q is what wins them games all the time. They are the most boring team that I have ever watched in history. Their QB's are brutal, they are unwatchable even tho they win.

Snooze,

Typical dumb Cheesehead, can't think of his own retort so he has to stoop to the all new low level of plagiarizing the greatest football fight song of all time, Bear Down Chicago Bears! But we, the intelligent fans of Chicago see thru your feeble attempt at humor.

Ahem. Regardless of the Vikings last second FG, I predicted this on here and a few other forums. The Texans will be a very good team in the next few years. Mark my words, I predict playoffs next year or the year after. And not a Cardinals type playoff team- a very good playoff team.

    • 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...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions? 
    • Gobbler down...
    • Even with all the snow gone, they still dont want to come out in the fields. Even this morning i really got on the slate, this one come in at 640. Now im cayching brown trout. Good luck fellas
