      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 am not sure exactly what question you are looking to have answered but if you post your question in this forum or the Boats & Motors forum I would venture to say that it would be answered.

I restored a boat. A 1981 Chrysler "bass pro runner 17". O/H eng. totaly and added all new upgrades. It is my pride and joy. I will give you a before image and in a couple of days, i will get a now image. I get alot of compliment's from the guys who were around when they were new. I dropped alot of time and money into her and I will give it to my son's before I sell her. Any ?'s please ask.

Best regards,

SHACKBASH

Well here she is. She is not that the brand new Ranger, but I call her home. I have dual live well's, bait well. Large rod locker. 12 gal. built in tank and 6 gal aux. tank. Dual bilge pump system and float minder (for keeping her in water for a week at a time). 105hp bored .060 over. Weisco alum. forged pistons. Three Makunie carbs (freshly o/h and synced). New Minkota trolling motor. Power anchor system. new carpet threw out. Humming bird matrix fishing system with GPS and dual display's(one on bow and other on helm). Happy Troller slows down troll. I have custom made back trolling Plexiglas shield’s (large pains)and bracket, but have not installed yet. Also original working retractable mooring tie off ropes (keeps tension when tied to dock, but lets out when larger waves come up). Remote controlled spot light. On board charging system (4 batteries). I know there's more. I also strengthened up transom with diamond plate pre-braked at 90 deg over top of transom. Also "CMC" tilt and trim. Tether switch and all items needed for tournament use. She is my river boat (note scum ring). Have not had her out in a couple of years, but am waiting for warmer weather and will have her out this year. A couple of my buddies have bought new decked out fishing boats and have not hade a need to take her out lately. OOOh. New tires, Power winch, and trailer jack. I love loading onto trailer with low profile and side guides. New windshield from Hanneys (not shown) All for now.

      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.
    • Jim Almquist
      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. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      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.
