      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 .

I just baught a 2003 Honda Foreman. I had an add in the paper saying I was looking for an ATV. I got a call from a guy tonight saying he had a 2003 Yamaha Kodiak that works great it's just that the reverse doesn't work. He wants $400. What would it cost me to have this fixed? Is it a major problem? Now that I'm not in the market but maybe I could make a dollar on it or would it be by the time I'm done fixing it there goes the profit. Thanks for your help in advance.

I do mean $400. I just want to know if someone know what the problem could be that reverse doesn't work. I figure these things new are around $6000 give or take. If I go buy it and it is going to cost me $3000 to get it fixed then I'm probably not interested. But if it's a problem that could possibly be something in the range of $1000 or less and I can turn around and sell it that would be great.

Snatch that sucker up quick!! You can buy a new trans and bolt that in there and still make money on it. I would try fixing it, or used first. If you dont want the deal I will take it. I need one, and am looking for this exact deal!

Dang, why do poeple tend to assume the worst in people. I called the guy tonight he's a dentist about ready to retire. He's so hard of hearing I had to talk to his wife so she could relay the message. He told her that he decide to try and fix it himself. He said he never rides it but sometimes the grand kids come and visit and take it for a spin. The guy is probably so rich he doesn't even care what the value of it is. He did have her write down my number so if he does decide to sell he will give me a call. Now I understand why he had is son call me the other night. The grand kids must have been riding it and that gave him second thoughts. Oh well. That's life. It's not like it was a Honda! cool.gif

Haven't you heard the old saying:

"If it's too good to be true......."

I guess it's just me, but I could never take advantage of someone like that

I think someone was a little jealous. Taking advantage of someone like that. He called me and when I asked him what he wanted for it his son said $400. So it wasn't just and old gentleman it was his son too. I bet if I showed up at your door never meeting you before i just happened to pick your house out of every house in the USA with my 2003 Honda Foreman 500. i showed you the registration along with my ID and said, Hey Mr.dtro my daughter is dieing of cancer and I need to help pay for her bills. I seen your garage door opend and noticed it looks like your a sportsman. I have this ATV here and could sure use $500 dollars. We can call the police it's not "hot" could you help me out. I would bet you would take it in a heartbeat. I'm sure you wouldn't say , Hey I'll give you $4500 because that's what it's worth.

Now if you answered my add in the paper for this same machine and I answered the phone being 75 years old and asked you well I don't really know what this thing is worth what would be a fair deal and you told me $500. That is what is called taking advantage of someone.

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
