      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 .

Remote Car Starters

Recommended Posts

Pikemaster101

Just wondering if you can get a remote starter for a 2001 Chevy pickup? where would you get something like this and what are some good brands that reach a good distance. Also what does something like this cost and are you able to install it your self or do you have to get that done professionally.

I think you can put them in most cars on the road today. There have been several prior threads on here about them. I think most everyone I've talked to has recommended Astrostart.

As long as it doesnt have a manual tranny you should be able to get one installed. If you are electronically inclined you can do it, otherwise pay some one, they arent to bad with install.

A good quality install is a must or there is a good chance you will be towed in......

Your 2001 Chevy has a transponder that has to show a resistance when the key is in the ignition. So you will need to buy a transponder box ($50)on top of the auto start. Stick with a DEI Or Viper brand I like them and they work well and have a lifetime warranty.

Had one installed in an 01 car a few years ago and it worked great. Did it at circuit city. Was around $200 with everything, but it's worth it. If you have kids and wanna get in a warm car in the winter or cool car in the summer, it's a must.

Just a word of warning.

I bought a truck that had a remote starter. I really liked it. One day I drove to a customer site and proceeded to go in and get to work. About 3 hours later a person came up to me and asked if I had a red truck. I told her yes and she told me it was running and it was on fire or at least smoking. I immidiately ran out to see and it was not smoking anymore but was running. I shut it off and it wouldn't re-start. I opened the hood to find the starter wire that goes directly to the battery had the plastic casing completely turned to dust and was powder on the ground and some was still on the wire but was powder when you touched it. Anyway the starter was completely gone. I went and got a new starter and wires and installed them in the customes parking lot at the end of the day. I was really lucky the whole truck didn't go up. I dissassembled the remote starter and found that there was a very small peice of wire floating around in there that happened to contact the solenoid pins on the circuit board causing the starter to stay on until it burned all the wire casing and fried the windings in the starter. So I don't think I will be getting a remote starter unless it is factory installed. I did really like it.

Where are you located?

We/I refer a lot of our customers to Dealer Automotive Services in Roseville, MN. They specialize in custom installs of all kind. From A/C to remote starters and anything else you can think of.

I had one done at Leroy's Customs in Coon Rapids and was very happy with it.

My 02 Chevy has a Comustar in it, I had it installed in Mankato. I love it and wouldn’t put any other starter in any of my trucks.

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
