      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 .

New tires

I need new tires for my Chev 2500 HD and I'm thinking of the Yokahama Geolander. Has anyone tried these and what do you think of them and why? HTB

If you Google Tire Rack they will give you comparisions on tires for your vehicle or by size or make. Ratings and feed back. I found it helpfull when I needed tires.

Are you looking at the AT tire?

Previous discussions have brought up three popular choices in an AT tire in no particular order:

BG Goodrich AT

Yokohama Geolander

Bridgestone Dueler Revos

I went with the Revo's on my 4-Runner, too new to give any good feedback other than they made my wallet much lighter blush.gif

In addition to those, take a look at Michelin LTX M/S. Very good all around tire that wears like iron.

I have a 98 F-150 that I've used with a couple tires mentioned in this thread. 2 sets ago I had Yoko Geolander A/T. They were a pretty nice tire. Not too spendy, and good enough for the limited off-road they saw. They also were pleasant on the highways. Only bummer is they wore extremely quick. I only got about 32k out of them and they are rated for 40k.

I am currently running Bridgestone Dueler Revo AT's and they are definately a superior tire to the Geolander. They are better off-road, slightly noisier highway, and have lasted over 55k against a 50k rating. They will need to be replaced within the next 1500-2000 miles and more than likely I am going to get another set.

Hope that helps some.

Are you sticking with 10 ply tires? They are a different beast than those for a half ton and I don't think same brands that are good in the regular tire are necessarily good in the ten ply.

I have Bridgestone Rugged Trail TA on my Dodge 2500 and they have approx 55,000 miles shocked.gif Tires are 1/2 worn. They are not an aggressive thread by any mean but they are great in rain, quiet, and.... they last forever.

BTW I never rotate my tires and I had alignment when I bought the truck (75,000 miles ago this spring).

I also have another CTD 2500 with Toyo Open Road AT and they seem pretty good, definitely not as good as the BFG.

I had Michelin on another truck and they were the noisiest tire I ever had..... and I used to be a Michelin enthusiast.

I don't have any experience with the tires you are asking about, but I am on my 2nd set of the BF Goodrich All Terrain TA KO 10 ply tires. I got about 60000 miles off my first set before they started cupping. I now have about 8,000 on my 2nd set, and I am still happy with them. I know, this is not exactly what you were asking for, but just another opinion to think about.-Later!

If you have a duramax in it you need to run 10 plys because of weight of the motor. They also will last much longer for you on a HD truck they will work great. I have had great luck with BF goodrich AT and have gotten 50,000 out of the ones I have had on my truck. Now I has some Coopers that are awesome for traction but they haven't worn for jack. I think I will look to Toyo Open country on my next set next year. All though the BFs are great their price is getting pretty crazy. I have heard good things of the geolanders though on GM heavy duties.

I don't drive a 3/4 ton but someone is going to seriously have to pay me some money to put something other than BFG All-Terrain T/A KOs on my 1/2 ton. 100,000 miles on my previous set. No flats until the day I put my new ones on.

Another vote for the BF Goodrich AT's. I'm at 60,000 right now and they are looking like they will do another 30,000 for sure. Never a flat.

BF's won't get a 100k on a heavy duty esecially with a diesel grin.gif. At least that is my experience but 50,000k is pretty good.

I have a pop-up camper (1,000 lbs)on the truck most of the summer, and haul around an 18' lund. The BF AT's have done well for me.

might not be comparable, but my father used the BF All terrain T/A on his S-10 and got 120K on first set, and somewhere arround 100K on the second set. He put cheaper tires on now because he thought it wasn't worth it if he didn't know if the truck would last out another set. I think he has around 280K on it and it is only a 98.

I am running a pair of BFG AT's (315/70/17) on my 03' Dodge 2500 Diesel. I have put 22k on them while they have been on this truck, and had put 30k on them on my 03' Dodge 1500 before I traded it in for the diesel annd had them swap the tires to the new truck. I still have a lot of tread left and expect to get at least another 10-20k out of them, probably more!! I will know for sure by next fall!

I ordered a set of tires last year over the internet from California, here in 4 days. If you can find someone to balance and mount them you can save some $$$$. It was free shipping over a certain amount. They might or might not have what you are looking for. Might get edited but it was at onlinetires.com

      Big Marine had 8" at the north access out to the weeds before the main lake.  Lots of walkers, a number of wheelers.  5 inches past the weeds above the ice before the island.   Access was crazy...very inconsiderate people tripple parking, a guy I was with got parked in, trucks behind and in front of him.  Luckily I was parked beside him and was able to move enough that he could get his truck out.   Fishing was very slow.  Couple panfish, a bass and snake northern.

      I'm definitely itching to get on the river.

      I was out on Hiniker Pond last night. Had no luck with fish but I was after dark. Straight out from the pier about 30 yards you got a solid 3.75 to 4 inches. Duck lake has about 5 inches. Henry had 4 inches last week. Not sure about this week.

        Doc was up there with a couple of his boys on Thursday fishing out of portables.  He gave me a call when he was on the ice.  I said, “. Let me guess what you got on”.  Red stripe Demon with a female fat head hooked through the pooper hole on the dead stick and a purple smelt rattling flyer with a minnow head on the other pole.  I nailed it.  He still uses a jiggle stick for his dead stick.  He had to sign off as a fish came in on the Vex.  Put it in the bucket Shaky.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      Miss the old days too shaky, we had some fun didn't we.  I don't miss working on the lake tho.
