      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 .

To get rid of the rust, go to any auto parts store and buy a can of,"PB Blaster." It's a spray rust remover. Next you will need some Extra Fine steel wool. Spray a small amount of the PB Blaster on the steel wool. Be careful not to overdo it because you do not want it to come into contact with the wood stock. Gently wotk the steel wool over the rusted area. Wipe the area clean so you can check to see if you have gotten all the rust. If you haven't, work it with the steel wool again. Once you have the rust removed to your satisfaction, take a new steel wool pad and apply a few drops of any good gun oil. Gently work it into the area's where you have just removed the rust. Lastly wipe off any excess oil. Then you should be good to go. If you have to take heroic measure's to get the rust removed, you might want to consider re-bluing the gun. I hope this helps and good luck to you. grin.gif1DIRTBALL wink.gif

Don't reblue. If a gun is a collectors item, then a decision to reblue should be taken carefully and if done it should be by a specialist. Some valuable guns that are not collectibles are worth having a top quality blue job done. In most cases "affordable" reblue jobs are less than satisfactory. If you have a "working gun" that needs refinishing go for one of the new finishes or even parkerising.

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
