      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 .

My New ATV

Recommended Posts

Well I bought a New ATV. I have had little prior experience with ATV's. This is the First one I have owned.

I had to move to Nebraska From Minnesota due to my job. I will admit the last 3 years I could not make up my mind to buy a ATV or a snowmobile for Icefishing in Minnesota.

The Move to Nebraska pretty much made the decision for me. I am actually looking forward to the Fun I will have through the season with the ATV. Here are a Few Pics.

I will say though, I miss Minnesota. Wyoming is Looking Better then where i am at. If I can get in or near the Mountains I will be happy.

What is it you do for work?

The company i am working for just opened a branch office in Cheyenne, and opening another in Rapid City, I work for a commercial General Contractor.

Work is Going very good out there. but don't expect to get wages like you do in Mlps/St.Paul area.

I was 13 years Union Carpenter Union. made my way to Supt. when the slow down hit, I was laid off. I started interviewing with Companies out West, and so here I am.

So I am happy. Gonna go out and coyote Hunt this weekend, using the ATV to do so.

Yep it is a 450, At this point being new to ATV's i didn't want a big machine. Just something to Haul Otter Lodge. Do a little trail riding, plow some snow. and do some hunting with.

I knew i didn't want to put tracks on it. ( although that is cool Looking) Figured if i need to get thru snow that i can't with the Wheeler, i will get a Snowmobile.

Time will tell i guess.

Once those safety stickers are off, the thing will be invisable!!! SWEET looking machine.

Really it would not matter what color you got cause I'd never be able to see you either way, cause you will be far behind!!!!!!

I really like this size wheeler for getting around in the woods. Congratulations on your purchase LurkerNLeever. You made a great choice. I have the same machine and really like it. The thing hauls deer, firewood, my fish houses, and me around the lakes and woods. With chains on all four I have been able to get around in some pretty deep snow and slush. I have loaded mine down with guys, gear, trailer and deer and it pulls just fine up hills and down. With the winch I was able to pull out a neighbor's stuck Suburban after chaining the back of the wheeler to a stump. It starts good in the cold too. From what I have experienced so far Yamaha machines are tough and reliable. You won't regret your purchase for a minute!

Nothing wrong with a smaller wheeler like that.

jltimm... Where did I say there was SOMETHING WRONG WITH IT??? Don't put words in my mouth!!!

I don't think jltimm's post was meant to sound that way. I think he was agreeing with you.

    • picked up another 4.5lber last night at costco gonna give it another shot this weekend. @rl_sd they still had few others in the 4-7lb range left in the pile  I haven't seen any other places locally that have smaller ones like those.  
    • saw a few combines out last night taking beans out on my way home from work. Took dog for a run and saw a couple more. Based on the ruts left in the field probably going to be a while yet before they really get going on harvest. Ground is still pretty wet and soft. We are supposed to get more rain this weekend in the eastern half of the state so hopefully they get get a bunch of stuff out of the fields these next couple of days. I have heard that in the northern areas, brown county, potter county etc where the drought was really bad they probably wont even harvest and just leave a lot of stuff in the fields until insurance can look at it. Those that have something to harvest got just enough rain late in the season that they may be able to salvage something but don't see them harvesting anytime soon. Good luck to those going out this weekend I probably wont end up going. I just prefer cooler temps mainly for the dog. I shot 3 birds earlier this week so scratched the itch. I am gonna get things done around the house and wait for more crops to come out and cooler temps before I really start hitting it hard. 
    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.
