      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 .

For most people, smokeless powder IS regular powder. If you are talking about a muzzleloader then you would be asking about black powder or black powder substitutes such as Pyrodex, Triple Seven or American Pioneer. The two biggest advantages of smokeless powder is very little fouling and no corrosive sulfer. Currently the only muzzleloader on the market that can be safely used with smokeless powder is made by Savage.

During the 2006 muzzleloading deer season the Minnesota legislature banned the use of smokelss powder but that law was repealed for this season.

The only muzzleloader on the market today that can be safely used with a charge of smokelss powder are made by savage. All others are only for Black powder or an approved substitute.

Smokeless powder is available in quite a few different burn rates and can generate substantially more presure than Black powder. The Savage that uses smokeless powder is built and tested for smokeless powder, it uses a small charge of a specific powder that this gun can safely shoot. Do not try to use this charge in any other gun.

The advantage of the savage using smokeless powder is that you will not have to worry about cleaning the rifle immiediatly after each time that you do some shooting and with very little powder residue you can fire more shots between cleanings. One other advantage is the powder charges are smaller so you get more shots from a pound of powder.

Nice post. You covered most every important issue about cautions and the like.

I would like to add that Bad Bull is another manufacturer of a smokeless-powder muzzle-loader, but they are spendy.

I hadn't heard of the Bad Bull guns, I'll have to check them out. I would like to add that if it says BLACK POWDER ONLY on the barrel DO NOT use any smokeless powder in that gun.

To be perfectly clear, DO NOT USE SMOKELESS POWDER IN ANY MUZZLELOADER OTHER THAN THE SAVAGE 10ML (or, evidently, one of the Bad Bulls) - you WILL blow up if you do.

ONLY black powder or black powder substitute (Pyrodex, et al) belongs in 99.5% of muzzleloaders.

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
