      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

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.

      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there.

      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious

      8Went out locally here thanksgiving mornin on three inches of solid ice hot into the eyes really well. A week later whole place was open water again so we went out in the kayaks got 14 eyes than went out again now that ice is back went to same lake and had a rough weekend we only managed to get three all weekend. Went out on all local lakes they are all sketchy at best. Few more days to solidify that bad ice and should be good to go. Went to shakopee in onamia and there was a solid 10 inches out there.
