      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 .

Shack, nice ride but a quick question where did you get the shovel. It looks short and still a little durable. Qualities lacking in most shovels that size. Thanks.

Chode, that is a tried and true Wal-Fart special grin

They had them a couple weeks back still in the garden section by the snow shovels. It has seen a huge work out this year so far. It extends out further also than shown in the image.

Toughguy, Sounds like fun, how did you do up there? I may have to give it a try after the last big Walleye weekend is over! frown

The shot was from last year. Only got one that day but it was a 26-28 inch laker if I remeber right. Give it a shot if you can. It's a blast up there. I'm going again in 2 weeks mostly for snowmobiling but we'll wet a line at least one day. We stay at Hungry Jack Lodge and drive to Gunflint (about 25 miles away). There are some lakes around the lodge that have some decent eater laker action too.

Leech - I drilled a hole in my auger holder so I can pull my fish trap pro - This was taken Laker fishing and we move too much to pull a house around.

Far-I I like that ride I have seen adds for them and think it would be great to have but I would not have $ for something like that. It would be great for that first and last ice. All I use is my Buck Century.

    • Buddie runs the blue bit gas Nills and Tanaka powerhead and he also told me they no longer make them. He bought another one off a guy just for a backup. Thinking maybe just the gas ones are gone  but possibly both, Interested to hear what Frank says. 
    • ajust in the controls of the radio????
    • Now I’m convinced. I made a shuttle for my Helix but I couldn’t get the settings right until yesterday. Love it with no interference with a Showdown right next to it. Still need to get the ice ducer for it. 
    • Thanks!  I went and spoke with the DMV, I was given a sheet for homemade trailers so I can itemize the parts.  Then I need to add up the values to pay sales tax on.  She said I can write "on-hand" for the parts so no receipt is needed. Just posting for reference.  
    • I believe the one I had was just a model #77 but in .22 cal.  It was a very nice rifle but a little heavy to carry squirrel hunting. It was not cheap either. My guess is I traded it for something else that caught my fancy. You know how that goes.
    • As I remember the round was developed by Col. Townsend Whelan.  It was well thought of at the time and could be loaded up to some serious heavy duty stuff,  big bullets etc.  It was favored in heavy cover since  it was thought of as a brush busting load. I am pretty sure it was available in at least one commercial rifle (Rem?) but it has long ago faded away as newer calibers etc. surpassed it. Am not sure the ammo was available commercially, but it would not take much of your time to  check it out. I'd start with the Col. and go from there.It had its strong supporters. The 35 Remington has a lot more going for it than the 30-30.
    • What kind of speakers and how are the speakers mounted? Sometimes they have to be in somewhat of a "box" to create the bass. 
    • sent him a note earlier
    •   I have a Nils and love it, would recommend it to anyone. Although I've never used the K-Drill, I've seen enough positive reviews to feel confident you really can't go wrong with either one. The only exception is if you're reopening holes a lot (especially if you have a permanent house). The K-Drill seems to be better for that. 
    • You need to go to the dmv and register it as a homemade trailer.
