      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 .

NEW GUN

Recommended Posts

hardwaterfishing

I have been looking for a new shotgun. I currently have a 870 which is a nice gun, but I want a semi-auto. I am pretty much stuck between the winchester SX3 or the beretta AL tenky 391. Both seem like a pretty nice gun. Your info is much appreciated. Thanks...

I don't know anything about an SX3, the SX2 has been a pretty solid firearm. I have a beretta, I'd take it over a SX2. Its a 390 not a 391. My brother had a 391, used it for a duck season and traded it in on a SX2. I don't know if you can go wrong with either. But the SX3 is pretty new, don't know any more about it.

I hunt with 9 guys who use Beretta's (myself included) and every one of them loves them. No problems, just fantastic results. I dont know anything about an SX3 and the fact that it is new means nobody else does either. I would go with the time proven 391.

Benelli anything. They are awesome and worth the money. I have an M1 and a Nova and love them. I would look at the M2 personally unless you are going to do a lot of goose shooting, you don't need the 3 1/2" shell capacity.

Beretta's are a close second. But I have also heard good things about the SX3.

I would suggest benelli as well, I've had my super black eagle for 8 years and never had a problem. I also like the Beretta's too. My dad is looking at getting an auto and we looked at beretta's the other day, very nice looking and feeling gun.

pick one that fits your shoulder first. It could be the best gun out there but if it doesn't fit you will suffer untill you alter the stock to get the proper fit.or buy the gun you want the have it fitted to your shoulder if you want to pay more. I just looked ti'll I found one that fit right off the shelve so I didn't have to go through the hassel.

Good point on gun fit. Also another reason to buy a Beretta as they come with different shims that let you make some mods without getting out the skillsaw! shocked.gif I think Benelli's come with those as well, but am not sure.

If the Beretta AL 391 fits you (keep in mind the stock is also adjustable for cast and drop) then you'd be hard pressed to find a better gas gun than that.

I would choose a Browning Gold. If you would like to shoot mine you sure can. We live close enough together.

After doing a lot of asking around I decided to go with the SX3. It was 250 dollars cheaper than the 391. I went out shooting today and it is SWEET!!! It’s a hair lighter than my dads 390. I got the 3.5 inch and it ejects the light trap loads just fine. Cant wait till Saturday.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
