      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 .

2008 Yamaha Grizzly with Maxxis Bighorns

Daytime pics added, thought I would start a new thread. Filled tires to 6 psi last night, went for a little ride and they seemed awfully squirrely ... checked pressure on the trail and they were above 7 psi! Tires do warm up, released some air down to 5.5 psi, very nice!

Don't be afraid to air them down a little more. I found on my machine with 25" bighorns, riding in the snow, about 4 psi in the front and 3.5 in the rear is perfect. Lots of traction and good floatation make them a great snow tire.

We also have a set of 26" Big Horns on 12" Black SS108's. We are running them at about 2.5-3.5 PSI and they are great in the winter time. You will love that setup.

Machine look great. I see you are over near Hayward, WI. We will be having a group ride over in the Winter/Ojibwa area this weekend Thursday thru Sunday if you want to join up. There should be 60+ of us. Guaranteed good times.

Interesting ... I'll drop the PSI to 3.5 and see how that runs. SomethingFishy, tried to PM you unsuccessfully. Thanks for the offer, I believe I'll be installing a set of Tatou 4S this weekend if they arrive in time! Probably working through Sat AM as well, but have fun over there, I've got a buddy that has a cabin by the Bumble Bee Resort.

Unfortunately no PM's available on this site.

Let us know how you like the Tatoo 4s, I test drove an 09 850xp with them on it. Tracks are a lot of fun, also useful. I don't think I could ever not have them again, you will love them with the power steering.

Check out AtvNation for some additional ATV'ing info. That is where I have met most of the people we will be riding with this weekend. My screen-name is the same on both sites.

Haven't had to use it on the ice yet, can still get every where I need to in the truck but I have been riding it on some trails behind the house.

Found a pretty good deal on a used trailer for it at Wild Rivers and got a set of chains for it. All set for when the ice gets a little worse.

    • I live in central MN but northern MN is still home. Winter is my favorite season. It was always tradition back in the day just before Thanksgiving to deer hunt Sunday ice fish Monday. We are well before that this year up there. They have been driving sleds from Baudette to Waskish I'm hoping it only gets better
    • Lol, yea don't think so.
    • Far from traditional, but either way, believe me, not complaining one bit. I'll take more comfortable days on the ice, in the woods, and looks like another day in the the boat tomorrow over extreme cold and deep snows of yesteryear. Having a lot of hobbies help bide time between waiting for good ice, and the warm up of spring.
    • I tend to agree. Although for the first 20 years or so of butchering with the old timer in our group that had his own equipment, his meat bandsaw,which was probably from the 50's I believe had basically cast iron parts and a regular steel blade.  After use everything was washed and wiped with a food grade mineral oil. 
    • Even if it's boiled in a vacuum sealed bag?
    • That was a complete embarrassment! There’s no way they can justify starting Croft next week! He is terrible!
    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
