      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 .

Hey archers of all nature. I was out at the 2008 Shot Show these past few days in Las Vegas and Bowtech had a booth present. Stopped in and looked around and said hi. If your a Bowtech owner and/or future owner you'll be even more impressed with there new magnet quiver and accesories for there bows. Pretty need ideas and very ahead in there engineering from what I have seen. Also looked at there Diamond and Marque(sp) bows that were set up really nice to hold and look at. You'll have to check them out there new stuff when it gets to the stores this summer.

Also there was some pretty cool Law Enforcement gear and guns that would even make a terrorist drool.

I just shot an '08 Commander today. Wow! It's awesome! I have an '07 Commander that I love, but the '08 is a slight, but noticable improvement. They have the new paint- InVelvet, which is really cool. It's sort of like there's an extremely thin layer of felt over the bow, with a hint of "rubberiness" to it. Also, my brother's arrows were going 301 out of my '07 model, but were movin' at 315 out of the '08 bow (same poundage, draw length, etc.). The slightly more aggressive cams are definitely faster.

Anyway... yes, the '08 Bowtechs look AWESOME!

My hunting buddy has a Liberty and Tomkat. He is gonna be very jealous if I come home with a new Guardian! I haven't made up my mind yet, but they are very sweet.

I got to shoot a guardian last night.. granted it was right handed... but, I did not like the draw cycle at all, Once you shoot the bow I like it.. very little hand shock, I liked the grip, and it was very quiet... but I cant find myself liking the draw anytime soon..

DD,

What didn't you like about the draw cycle? I have a Commander, which is really just a longer Guardian, and the draw cycle is A-OK by me. Also, could the fact that you were drawing it off-handed be part of the trouble?

there is a major wall right before it lets off. I understand that this is just that second cam turning over, but to it is a bear to get through at 70#'s. I bought the marquis a couple days ago which is still really fast but 10 times as smooth. I would have bought the gardian if it was smoother on the draw and that huge wall wasnt there.

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.
