      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 .

had the power steering pump go out of my 97 chevy z71 so i took it to be replaced after getting it replaced it still wasnt working so i took it back it turns out that the resevoir was leaking so i got it replaced and got it back tonight and on the print out from the shop it said "engine has low rpms so steering is stiff until rpms are raised" so i drove it a while and its very hard to steer from a dead stop but when your moving faster it works fine so my ? is there a way to change the rpms or what do i do?

With the transmission in drive the engine RPM should be 525-575 for a 5.7 and 675 - 725 for a 5.0. If your vehicle is within these specs than the pump should be turning fast enough to provide enough pressure to the gearbox.

Have you tried to raise the RPM while parked to see if it turns easier? Any unassisted power steering will feel easier to steer while moving.

Air in system yet!

I think a good way to bleed system is turn steering wheel back and forth (lock to lock) many times and this bleeds system. Or reg. driving!

That or pump has something wrong with it. Line blocked or pinched!

Do you hear any whining noise pr squealing noise when steering wheel is turned.

Did you leave any Elec. wires unhooked at pump or lines?

i talked to the mechanic and they said the pump only pumps when its in demand but theres still gota be something because it never steered that hard with the original pump before it quit and i dont know how they expect you to drive it like it is and no there is no winding noise at all

I would talk to the service manager, and ask him to drive it with you, then tell him if they wont fix it right you will bring it to someone who can fix it and give him the bill.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
