      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 .

remington 870 mounts

Recommended Posts

Okay, I got a low profile (projection type, not a tube style) red (Contact Us Please) "scope". I bought a b-square mount, but my problem is that when I bring the gun up, I have to raise my cheek up to almost the top of my jaw. Now before I run a 12 ga. slug down the tube, will I take a tremendous jolt to my face due to the fact that my cheek is not in on the stock?

Also, does anyone know of a mount for my 870 that doesn't give you 1/2" rise from the receiver?

thanks for the help

I forgot to mention that I have a thumbhole stock on my shotgun right now so I am not sure if the stretchy sleeve will work

after beating the brush with it last fall grouse hunting, she still looks brand new. It is amazing how hard (and heavy) that laminate is.....

I am by no means a gun expert, but I think I recently experienced something similiar. I think you should find a new stock that doesn't have that rise in it. Would that fix the problem? I also believe their is a "wedge" to buy that will change the angle of your current stock. That might work also.

Good looking gun. Good luck!

My experience with the B square is not positive. I found that they did not hold up to the recoil of a hard kicking 870 slug gun. The other issue is that every time I fired the gun, the edge of the bracket would recoil back into my trigger hand just below my index finger. It actually drew blood. If I were you, I would do two things: 1) Have your reciever tapped for scope mounts and 2) have your trigger adjusted. I think you will be happy with the results and it should take care of your main issue. Also - a good quality scope on a slug gun is a must due to the heavy recoil. Good luck!

I think it would be around $100 give or take. Another option would be a canteliever slug barrel.

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
