      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 .

Hey guys,

Anybody have any old plywood laying around that I can cut a 40" X 20" piece out of?? It can be 3/8 or 1/2 or even 5/8" thickness. I came up a little short building a locker for my ice rods so I can put them in my Otter sled and not have them get all beat up. I most certainly DON'T want to go to the lumber yard and buy an entire sheet especially since all I have used so far was scraps left over from the fish house project. Can anyone help me out?? laugh.gif Thanks!

Justin

Justin......Hey i am a dudette!!!!

Anyone have a ramp i can use to get my quad into the back of the truck? Another problem again with the cat.. and it has only 30 miles on it..

First it wouldn't turn off, had to undo the battery, when i connected it again it start up on it own and wont shut off no matter what i did. Then it wont go into Lo and now it wont start it just clicks the cellinoid is shot.. The guy at the Cat dealer just keep making excuses, and you know i just got my new battery from him, it didn't even come with one , i had to use a broken one cause he gave mine away and didn't have one.. Its driving me crazy..

Hey Tammi,

Sorry, but I don't have a ramp or a trailer. crazy.gif I have been looking to buy a trailer for a while, but can't come up with one in the right price range.

Good Luck,

Justin

Kallista,

If you bought it brand new and have had the concerns you have had, I would call dealer and have them come pick it for you. Down here, when you buy a tractor new, there are a couple dealers that will come and pick up for repairs or acc. to be installed. Worth a shot!

Good luck!

Hi Kallista.

I'll just throw this out there. You can make some decent ramps out of green treated 2x10's or 2x12's with a 2x4 screwed crossways on either end to hold it on the back of the truck. I use one for sliding my Voyager in and out of my truck if I'm alone. I would probably add firring strips or something on top for traction though.

I'm sure they'll take the weight. If you still need something in a month or so, and trust me on this, I can make a couple for you and bring them up on laker opener. I have extra at home.

How long is your truck bed?

Its a long bed... but i think the quad isn't that heavy i think if 2 people might be able to get it on the back bed..

Thank you for that info, it will be something i will be building come spring, maybe something that can be slid into the bed too to take with for loading and unloading for summer riding..Sounds like something i would be interested in.. and yes i can wait, i just need to get this to him, since he wont come and get it.. I am about ready to give him a piece of my mind with this thing..

      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

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties

      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      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.
