      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.

Na, dont get coopers, if you want the best get BRIDGESTONE DUELER A/T REVOS. I GOT THEM ON MY TRUCK AND THEY BLOW EVERYTHING AWAY.

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.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.
    • FirstIce
      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.
    • icepike 1
      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
