      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

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.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
