      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 .

2009 masters champion is?

Recommended Posts

You can pick anybody other than Tiger. It's to easy to pick him.

I guess it's more like picking who will be second place. smile

I'll go with Paul Casey. He finished 1st and 2nd the last couple of weeks and he's riding the hot streak.

If not tiger than it is hard to ignore Phil. That rookie Rory Mcilroy could make some noise as well.....

My daughter's golf team draws names from a hat for the Masters. She will be hoping Vijay wins!

The last time I had a daughter in golf, she drew Tiger Woods, and won the prize.

I'd love see Freddy make a run. Norman too for that matter.

It would be nice to see Rory Mcilroy live up to the hype. The dude better know how to putt.

And if its gotta be Tiger. I hope Harrington is the final group with him on Sunday and gets spanked.

It's nice seing Jim Furyk up near the leader board. And Chad Campbell is on fire today, -4 through the front nine with a bunch of birdie holes on the back.

Im a Tiger fan so I atleast hope he's in the mix come sunday. He easily could have shot alot lower yesterday. He'd love to have some of those puts back...

The Duck is right up there! Quack, Quack.

Great tourney so far.

Tiger is about an inch away from being on top. So close on so many puts.

Anthony Kim with 11 birdies today.

Should be a great weekend. Will be fun to see some of the tough pin placements this weekend.

Sweet day of golf. I've gotta get to Augusta at least once in my life.

I'd like to see Furyk, the Quiet Man, sneak up and take it away. If not him, I want Perry to win it. He's having such a good time out there.

I don't want to see Tiger win this one, though I think it'll be a lot of fun watching him and Phil, who look to be paired together tomorrow. It was inspiring to see them both struggle yet fight their way back to the edge of being within reach.

I'd be surprised if Campbell stays in contention. He was really hanging his head after that teeter-totter performance on those last few holes today. Two strokes back isn't much, but two strokes back heading the wrong direction could make for a sleepless night for him. I do hope he can stay in it.

Who knows, maybe someone at -4 to -6 will put up some bizarre number tomorrow and Cabrera and Perry will be stuck in place. At Augusta on Master's Sunday, what's impossible? smilesmile

It was mighty fine watching today with 56 minutes out of each hour devoted to golf and only 4 minutes wasted on ads. A guy could get used to that! gringrin

I really want the Duck to win. He's fearless out there. Probably my second favorite player on tour.

well...one day left.

I think Tiger will post a good round tomorrow - 67 or 68. However, Perry or Cabrera will not fall back. Those 2 are putting well - and Perry is really putting well and striking the ball well - he plays that right to left draw and that fits most holes there perfectly. If he is in the hunt with 13 and 15 that really swing that way - he should be in birdie range on both those holes come the back nine. I like the guy alot - he helped the U.S. take the Ryder cup this year - and both his parents are battling illness - would be great to see him win a green jacket. Tomorrow should be fun no matter what :-)

Best tourney I've seen in a long time. The Duck outlasts Perry and Campbell. Tiger/Phil pairing was awesome.

I don't recall who it was, but the shot where he had enough backspin on the ball and it dropped into the cup after what seemed like a 15 foot roll. Amazing.

Loved the drive by Perry that landed only a couple feet from the cup. I thought it was a done deal after that.

That was a PHIL like choke by Perry and Campbell after Angel hit that one in the trees.

not very easy to Birdie the 18th Hole, I thought Par would have done it on the 18th...

    • 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
