      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 .

Question on truck tires

Recommended Posts

The Yeti

Fellow fisherman. I might be able to get a deal on some Coopers. Anyone have experience with these? I currently have the Baja's from FF on my truck, but they wore down very quickly. Any suggestions? I don't want to spend a fortune either. It's a full size 4x4 Chevy. Thanks for any replies.

Hey Yeti,
I've been running the Cooper Discovery AT on my suburban for about 60k now and they seem to have good wear life. I like the AT cause they're self cleaning and don't get clogged with mud or snow. But they will fling the mud and snow where esle.

My vote yes

I recommend the BFG long trail, but that's me. For the real scoop check out tires.com or the discount tire website, one of those two has honest costomer feedback for just about every tire made.

Those Revo's are good I run them on my Jeep. But they are a little spendy, worth every penny though. As for the Cooper vs. Revo's that's a tough one. The biggest factor I see is the Revo's have more squared shoulders which does make a biggest imprint and more traction. Plus the squared shoulder does look nicer.

Either one should get you to and from most places

I'm with Joe Harty on the BFG's. My opinion on tires is if you buy cheap, you buy twice!

I've been using BFG All-Terrain T/A KO for the last 7 or 8 years now. Yes, they are a little aggressive but what what boat landing, gravel road, mud trail, frozen lake, or snow covered road couldn't use a little extra traction. Bridgestone Duelers would be my second choice but I've always gone for the BFGs.

I use to have Duelers, but the seem to wear faster then the Toyo Open Country that I have on now. The nice thing about the Toyo is quite ride with the aggressive look. Also the tread is cut all the way down, unlike duelers which is about half way. As far is pricing I think I paid right around $500 for the set. I know Costco sells duelers for a good price though. Which I might buy next time to save a little bread.

I have owned several sets of BFG's on several differant trucks. I love 'em. I had a set of KO's last 70,000 miles and still had tread on 'em when I sold the truck. Bridgestone Deulers would be my second choice, because they are less expensive than BFG's. I would stay away from any Goodyears though, they are nothing but problems.

I would agree that the BFG are awesome. I have a set on my 99 chevy 3/4 ton and love them. If you are looking for even more traction go with Wrangler Mt/R's. They are the best mud and snow tire I have ever seen.

      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.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
