      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 .

this is a good running motor just needs a carburetor cleaning due to the fact that it doesnt run great at low speeds other than that it has worked very well for me. I had it on an older 16 ft lund and it pushed it 23 mph. i would like to get 350 for it but give me a call and maybe we can work something out. I could deliver this motor if need be.

I have school untill 2:20 anyways, so that will probably be fine, unless we go to our cabin (just realized we were going) before 5 but I doubt it. I wont be able to call in the morning because I will be at school, so I will just have to call later on friday, unless you want me to call tonight. smirk.gif

yes possibly tonite. My dad will be home any minute now, but we are going to see a 45 minute movie at the I Max theatre, but after that possibly. I just found two 25 horse motors on craigslist for a little bit more money than yours that I am interested in as well. IO still would definitely like to check yours out, because I dont want to get your hopes up of a sale, and say no. I am not saying this for you to lowere the price or anything, but just wanted to tell you that I have some others to look at possibly.

My dad just got home, and tonite will not work. Sorry it will have to be tomorrow after five. We drive basically through farmington to get to our cabin, so we should be able to find time.

I wish we didnt have to go frown.gif

sounds okay does that mean you buy it tomorrow if you like it or does it mean you have to look at those other motors first? youre not going to find a better deal than this because i am just trying to get rid of it. Another thing is that for some reason this motor is a very fast 18 horse because i have had a 15 horse motor on my boat and its not comparable at all so thats another thing to think about.

It is going to have to be sunday or monday now mad.gif

We are leaving now so I cant check it out until sunday. To be honest, I dont even know if my dad is interested in those others, so we will check yours out first, and if it is the right buy, we will get it. Im sorry about that frown.gif

I will be sure to write down your number, and call you, so we can see it on our way back home. ttyl.

I hate to be stubborn, but if this other motor that I saw is still for sale, I am going to check it out. Sorry I didn't call, didn't want to bother you at work. This other motor is a short shaft(Which is what i really need) a bit more power, newer parts, and such, plus its at about the same price, so I hope you can understand my reasoning for not purchasing yours right now. It may be up to a week before I see this other one (that is if it is still for sale) so I will get back to you when I decide. I am still considering yours, but if I don't I wish you good luck, and I think yours will sell pretty fast, because it is a good deal.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.
    • Wanderer
      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
