      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 .

Anyone have one of these? I am looking at picking one up...end of season sale and I am curious if anyone else has one and what their thoughts might be. Thanks.

just getting into the sport again after many many years. I have a 99 vmax.

I like the idea of a 4 stroke engine but I do understand they have their issues. I would be mostly doing trail riding in the West central MN area....but enjoy getting off the trail in deep powder here and there.

yeah, of course. I am just curious if anyone has one..and if they would share their opinions. I am scheduled to meet with the dealer tomorrow and test one...but I just thought I would ask for some outside input.

They made a lot of changes to the front end from last year. The 08 were bad they were hard to handle and you took so much of the blows to your arms. I agree i would test drive one befor buying. What makes you interested in a Nytro??

I drove an '09 this fall and that thing is awesome. I drove the Ski 4-stroke too and that things was also awesome. It would be a tough call between the two. I would look at that Ski too. It is lighter that the Nytro. Either way, both sleds pull HARD!

What makes you interested in a Nytro??

Yes, I do plan on driving it before making my decision. Your the 2nd person who has said that to me. Is it common for people to spend that sort of money and not even test drive it? That would be crazy!

Why am I interested? No specific reason really...other than I spoke to a couple of people who have tested it and gave it good reviews. It also seems that Yamaha has a good reputation with their 4-stroke engines. If I understand it correctly, its Yamaha's cross over sled.....good for trails and some powder...and that concept appeals to me.

I guess the dealership is just over the bridge and I spent an afternoon checking it out...and thought it looked like a nice sled. I am open to other sled suggestions... Thanks

A common complaint is that they off little wind protection and gets very cold riding one(even with the tall windshield and side deflectors). Handwarmers dont get very hot.

bad ice build up in the tunnel while power riding..some people are saying they get over 30 lbs of ice build up!!!!

lacks ski pressure..which hurts trail and cornering performance.

I was actually considering one before this season and now Im glad I didnt get one.

Not that this site doesn't have great responses but you should check out www ty4stroke com and read all you want. You'll find more actual users/owners on there. Everything that I've read/experienced, this would definitely be the sled I would buy right now.

    • Anoka Union paper says it is moving into the sports authority building in Coon Rapids.  
    • While the southern half of the state saw some significant rainfall and even some flooding this week, areas of northern Wisconsin received up to nearly a foot of new snow. Snowmobile trails remain in good to excellent condition in nearly 20 of the most northern tier counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Cross-Country Ski Trail Conditions are also good to excellent across the north.Cross-country ski trails are in excellent condition at Pattison State Park, which received nearly a foot of snow this week. The park is hosting a Winterfest on Saturday.Photo credit: Gervase Thompson A kids fisheree on Lake Noquebay in Marinette County last weekend produced some very nice fish including perch, crappie, bluegill, walleye, northern, and trout. The lake ice was nearly 2 feet thick. There have been good northern pike catches on the back waters of the Wolf River on tip ups baited with a shiner.Whitefish fishing has remained pretty decent up and down the entire Bay of Green Bay. Some anglers are targeting perch too but with moderate to poor success. Whitefish were still being caught off the Oconto breakwater in decent numbers. Toward the end of the week only anglers from Sawyer Harbor had good luck and were able to come in with their limits of whitefish after a half day out on the ice. Anglers fishing the Fox River at Voyageurs park report fishing slowed with a few walleyes and whitefish still being caught. .
    • The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.    
    • I can recall,   farther back than you think, of running into one now and then and finding one inn a trap from time to time. And this was MORE than fifty years ago,  so they've been around a while. Maybe just an uptick in the population in southern MN.
    • For any of you that have ever had a desire to do any sledding in the Black Hills... This is definitely the year to do it. This is by far the most snow that I have seen out there. On most years, you can get lucky to ride either the Northern or Southern hills... This year both are awesome and the meadows are full! I am hoping to get out there once more before the end of the month.
    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower.
