      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 .

OK guys, I am looking at a new G3 boat a 172C with a yamaha 115 fourstroke on it, it seems like a nice boat. It doesnt seem to be a flashy crestliner or lund but seems well made and solid, anybody have one, and hows it holding up? Yamaha outboards seem good too, any thoughts on them???? My family and i have always had evinrudes/johnsons and mercs any thoughts??? the package seems pretty nice for the money. any feedback by owners or people who know owners would be great. thanks guys!!!!

I have never ridden in once. Seen em on the water. As for the motors, I love my Yami motor. 4 stroke 150. Quite running, excellent gas mileage, and gets from point a to b in a hurry. If they make boats like they do wheelers, bikes, and motors, im sure its a good buy.

I hear they are pretty good boats. As for the Yamaha motors they are great. If you are dealing with the dealer from Waseca. They are great and will take care of you like no other.

You can't beat Yamaha. As for the boat, I would lean more towards an Alumacraft if it's not a Lund you're after. I know G3 has had a lot of hull problems but perhaps those things have been ironed out and they're good to go. It's something to check on.

Good luck with your new purchase whatever you decide to do.

Well guys i got the boat, delivery on wednesday, 172c with 115 yamaha, minkota maxxom pro in front vantage on back, wave wackers, lowrance lcx 27c, on board charger, sony am-fm cd player, cover, air ride seats(all 4) sliders on 3, tilt no feedback steering. im a happy camper er fisher that is. bye the way T.O. the dealer said they did have some problems 8 to 10 years back, but they worked out all the problems and yamaha put alot of money in the factory to make them a world class boat. plus he said the warranty will take care of it if something happens. but he said he hasnt had those problems in 7 or 8 years! none not 1. so that made me feel better. i also talked to 3 others who own the boats and they say no problems with the boat, accessories yes but not the boat, and G-3 took care of them, also nice to hear!! grin.gif

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there.

      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious

      8Went out locally here thanksgiving mornin on three inches of solid ice hot into the eyes really well. A week later whole place was open water again so we went out in the kayaks got 14 eyes than went out again now that ice is back went to same lake and had a rough weekend we only managed to get three all weekend. Went out on all local lakes they are all sketchy at best. Few more days to solidify that bad ice and should be good to go. Went to shakopee in onamia and there was a solid 10 inches out there.
