      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 .

Depending on what you think is not alot. I have a SIM and it's very good at taking the recoil off my shoulder. It's about $25- $35 depending on what gun it's for and where you get it from.

Agree with the SIM. Gander or Sportsman's Wharehouse carries them. I have one on my turkey gun and don't even get bruises from shooting it anymore!

My dad was complaining about his Muzzleloader kicking and it being so short. He has LONG arms and is a big guy so I got him the slip on one and he loves it. Can't even feel it kick no more plus it did add length. If you have longer arms and the gun seems short get a slip on if not get the screw in one.

$25 -35 would be max I want to spend on one. If sim is the best you guys think I can get for that money, thats what I will get. It will be for a remington 30-06. I just had surgery on my shoulder, and I will need something that will soften the blow a bit for me.

The good fitted SIM may be a bit more than that, but they are worth it. If it is temporary, till your shoulder gets better, the slip on ones may be a little cheaper.

Course this may be a good time to convince your wife you need a new .243? Just thinking out loud...

My wife has a .243, and she hunts with me. I have tried to talk her into using the 30-06, and letting me shoot the .243, but that was a no go. Although if I put a pad on it it may soften it up enough for her to shoot it, then I can use the .243, either way if I get the pad, if she doesnt shoot it, it should soften the blow enough for me. And I may just like the pad on their for next year also.

I think you can get reduced recoil loads for the '06. Might be worth considering in addition to, or in lieu of, the recoil pad.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!
