      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 .

FORD VS. CHEVY

I thought that I would see what you guys think about Ford and Chevy partnering up? I heard about it a couple of days ago.

Anybody else hear about this?

I was in alaska awhile back and everyone seemed to run the Ford duelies, I saw a fair amount of GMC and Chevy trucks out west hunting out there. My thought on this is: WOULD THEY MAKE IT A GOURD? They are all comperable for the price, might make it a bit cheaper if they did partner and us Ford and GM guys could really ride the guys that own a Dodge then, right? Bottom line, use what works to tow your boat/sleds from point A to B. We can all brag about the truck we have if we have one, however, I built a hitch for an old Subaru hatchback when I was in college to tow a 12' boat up to the Gunflint. The car was not made for towing but as a fisherman, I needed to pull my 12' boat to the lake to fish. Short on money and a ride that could get the job done I put a hitch on the 4 cylander 4 speed and towed away. I had a couple of great trips with that little car(all memorable) but if it can get to the water and do the things you have in mind for it then it is all good in my book! The Subaru in question was a hatchback with 4 speeds on the floor and low and high 4- wheel drive I hunted with it, put bucks in the back and for ice fishing it was awsome. How often is it that a person can get a car/truck unstuck on lake ice by themselves? Course when I had to tow out a few friends with their pickups, from ditches, the lake accesses ect. They didn't make fun of my little car from then on. So is it the brand, or the size of the truck that makes it what it is? I have typically always bought GM once I could afford it. I looked at the Fords, Chevy's, Dodge's and the imports and found that the crew cab GMC fit my price range and the applications that I have for transportation. By the way, I ran that Subaru over 150,000 miles and pulled my boat the whole time I owned it. Bottom line, I still have the boat, I sold the car 10 years ago. If the manufacturers can get together and put something on the road that we all can benefit from I say do it! Yeah, I am loyal to a brand but if they build a better truck/car then why not? The overseas markets are cashing in right now and working hard to take a domestic share in the states. Might just be 2 heads are better then one. My 2 cents.

Datsuns, lol! My Grandfather had a huge paper route for 20 some years and every year he would buy a new Volkswagen Beetle. Until they stopped making them here. Then he switched to the small datsun 4 dr. I forgot what it was called. His last one before he retired ended up being my older brothers first car, which, ironically, he used for a paper route wink.gif It was an overnight route for the Trib and I got to ride along and put the papers in the boxes one night when it was raining fiercely. We ended up in a ditch in about a foot and a half of mud. We walked to the nearest farm and had the owner pull us out with a tractor. I never got to go again because my Mom got freaked we went in the ditch. The car ended up becoming my cousin's and he used it in a couple stock/demo races before it was no more. I guess he liked racing because as far as I know he still does it. He races out of Brainerd, number 3 grin.gif Just my lttle Datsun story.

Although I drive Fords and have for many a year, it's because I understand them and feel comfortable with them.

Chevy's, GMC's, Dodges, they are all good, they are all pretty much the same, a drive train, a body, etc. They all do the same things, one isn't head and shoulders above the others, no Yugo's among them!

It's like debating steak, it's all good! grin.gif

Really? What is the motor in the almighty Cadillac?

From the respective websites:

2007 GMC Yukon Denali, Vortec 6.2L V-8

2007 Cadillac Escalade, Vortec 6.2L V-8

Denali XL and Escalade ESV utilize same motor.

The older Denali/Escalade use a Vortec 6.0L V-8

Escalade/Denali are the same vehicle with different body/interior accents. You just pay more for the "Cadillac" name.

After looking at both websites I found that a Denali with a 6.2 has 380 hp@ 5500 rpm and 417 ft lbs torque, while the Cadillac with a 6.2 has 403 hp @ 5,700 rpm / 417 lb-ft @ 4,300 rpm. More horsepower.....and the same torque at a lower rpm should equate to somewhat better performance due to a wider powerband. So, you really do get something more with the Caddy, although I'm pretty sure I wouldnt personally want to pay the difference.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      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.

      Anyone in Camp this first season? Give us your personal report, us second hunt hunters are curious!!? First day report is 650 hunters hunted Thursday, Harvesting 37 deer. Doesnt sound to bad.  Didn't hear of any large bucks yet. Good luck to all.

      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.
    • Captain Acorn
      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
    • PSU
      Lot's of walleyes to be had, but most for me seem to be smaller (8-10 inches)

      I too use my AT and T hot spot, works great!!
