      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 .

mossy roof

I was cleaning the gutters last week and noticed there were some decent-sized clumps of moss on the north side of the roof. I could loosen them up and remove a few of them with the leaf blower. I assume that it's a good idea to remove them if possible. Could a person spray a little dilute bleach or something else to kill them off or loosen them up? Appreciate any words of wisdom. Thanks. Go Vikes. A miserable season would be a little better with two wins over the pack. thanks

yeah, first you are going to wanna do what Hawk said then spray the diluted bleach on the roof. It should be able to take care of itself after that. let them die and they should come off by themself. Thats funny you ask this question because the exact same thing was on "This Old House" this weekend. If you put the zinc strips down remember to put silicone on the nail heads.

you may want to test an area on your siding etc. with the bleach, it may change its color.

I had this same problem on my garage a few years ago. I found a product made for this problem in the Home & Garden section of our local Menards/Home Depot. It came in a spray bottle that you attach to your garden hose. Its sprayed on the roof and over the course of a week or two it killed the moss. It didnt hurt any of the grass or surrounding plant life but you are suppose to try and keep it off such stuff....so its best to do it on a calm day. Sorry, I cant remember the name of the product....

my 2 cents as an x and on the side roofer- zink strips like you guys said. Another thing to keep in mind besides sealing the nail heads is that some of it is sharp as all you know what. I learned the hard way but it only took once!

I re-roofed my parents house 5 years ago (cedar shingles) and we put two courses of zinc strips on the roof. One row on each side of the peak and one row halfway to the d-edge. He used to have lots of moss on the old shingles and previously had to use the bleach method to keep it off. 5 years later the shingles still look brand new. We also cut back a lot of the tree limbs that were near the roof so that it would dry off more thoroughly. Hope this helps you.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
