      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 .

I had my auto jam on me on the last day of the season this year. The bolt did not go fully forward and the 3nd shot did not fire. (I'd like to think this cost me a triple on greenheads). Anyone have tips for cold weather and autos. I need the recoil reduction otherwise I'd use my pump. I didn't post the brand, cuz I didn't want a ford vs chevy thing. Just looking for some tips. New to an auto. Thanks guys

UM BESIDES the obvious - clean more often... not much you can do.

Run it practically dry. Right before you go out hunting, apply small amount of gun oil, then wipe down with dry rag as well as you can. Every part. That will elimate the oil from freezing and "gunking up" your bolt.

Breakfree CLP. Its the answer to all gun lubrication problems.

I've used that stuff well below zero on my varmint rigs, and no problems.

Try shooting an 870. stick with what works, I know a guy that has had one since he was a teenager and has never had a problem with it. He actually talkes about how much better he shoots it than any other gun, I would think he would not mess with something that has worked so well for so long.

Buy an aftermarket spring. Once I did this I have never had a jam. You can also take the spring out and stretch it out a bit.

or just keep it dry,,, tolerances in today's guns arent all that tight so if you run them dry for the maybe 10 shots at most it takes to get a limit here in MN it wont be a problem

Yeah Smarta$$ I do shoot better with my 870 (it's older than you)...just not for as long, a like the cusion from my Gold. Should have had surgery at a more reputable institution. I found out I wasn't cleaning the recoil spring properly, have to take off the Steven to get at it. Was filthy. That should take care of the problem with some dry-lube. And what was your total hoodie take this year?

One of the most common errors made by sportsman who clean their own firearms is over oiling. Too much lubricant is not only unnecessary it also attracts dirt and in itself becomes a contaminant as it breaks down over time.

I believe that this is one time when more is not necessarily better.

Gun oil should be applied very lightly.

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff
