      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 .

Bought a 2000 GMC jimmy from my parents yesterday...I think the tranny went today. It clunked and fell out of gear and it ran fine but on the next drive an hr later it wouldnt shift ( 2 1/2 rpms at 20 mph) and no reverse. It makes a werid whinning noise underneath. What do you think it is??!! I dont have any money ( im in college) and Its practically brand new. Im starting to think theres no shuch thing as a good truck anymore... frown.gif

I wish I had good news for you, but my sister's family had one of those ('99) that was nothing but problems. Transmission, ball joints, U Joints, transfer case, brakes, it had it all go out, and multiple times over about 4 years. Maybe your parents can help you out by taking it to the nearest crusher and being rid of the problem. Sorry about the bad timing!

Doesn't sound good...

For starters, I'd check the tranny fluid if you haven't already done that.

A last ditch attempt!

Does it have 4x4. Is it stuck in 4x4 low!

Could be transfer case, but most likly it is trans.

Did you buy it from a dealer or private party?

Don't get me started! grin.gif

These guys are right. We see a fair amount of transmission failures on these as well as ball joints, axle seals, front diffs, oil cooler lines, intake gaskets, a/c compressors, fuel pumps, fuel pressure regulators, turn signal switches, door hinge bushings, front wheel bearings / speed sensors, serp belt tensioners, water pumps, and the list continues.

Its not that there isn't a good vehicle out there, you just happen to have one with a high failure rate of a lot of its components.

Great....But You see I bought it from my mom and step dad and they have it for a yr no problems and they bought it from their best friends who are mechanics and they never had a problem. It was professionally serviced and maintained more then required. Plus kelly blue book puts that vechile/condition around the 4500 mark. Mom and dad let it go for 2 grand. WHAT MORE COULD A COLLEGE KID WANT OR ASK FOR?? All through High school I had lemon vehicles that rapped the Little money I had and then some. So I guess you can see where im coming from. Sorry If I seem to be negitive about buying a used veichle. At leats it happend at home and not on the road back to school. I had to take my pickup back to school for awhile so Hopefully its just a tranny and nothing else until I get farther down the line with some money to work with.

Well, the good news is that you should have a mechanic close to the family that can take care of you, possibly even work out a payment plan for the repair? Good Luck!

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.
