      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 .

as far as i know you use a small diameter string like sewing thread, and epoxy. the string holds it there and the epoxy glues it and hold the string together. i did it to one of mine but it didnt turn out to well. you should be able to buy the guides at a tackel shop. i didnt realize you live in wadena, me too, check webers hardware. i know they have the guides, im not sure if they will fix them or not.

this is just my 2 cents

Ordered a couple sets of I think they were called B and M slide on guides from Bass Pro.I'll try fiberglass resin to anchor them but I have my doubts.Couldn't find any other repair kits out there without having to buy a whole rod building set that got to be real spendy.Too nice of rods to toss away.Would still rather pay someone to do a descent job if anyone knows of anyone.If not I'll post a report of how the quick fix holds up,may be awhile till they get a work out.Have a boat load of rods n reels,can never have too many...unless you ask the wife smile.gif

My dad's a rod builder. If you can get them to me in Fargo before Labor Day weekend, I'll have him fix them and they'll be back here on Mon. He'll fix them a heck of a lot nicer than a shrink wrap or quick fix kits like you referred to. Also, it costs very little to have him fix a few guides. I guarentee his work.

I think that Bens Bait in Battle Lake maybe does it. Not sure though.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
