      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 .

Insurance Question

Recommended Posts

BigWadeS

Yesterday we had our vehicle broke into a park and ride (along with 25 others) and I haven't had to deal with this before. Besides the window being shattered does the vehicle comp coverage, cover what was taken: cd's, auger, & flasher or would I need to file that under home owners? Thanks for any input you may have.

Most auto policies in MN don't have any coverage for non-permanent things like augers and flashers. Chances are those things will have to go on your homeowners. Which usually means a seperate deductible. Auto policies usually only cover things that are permanently attached, like CD players, ect.. Sorry about that happening. It always kind of leaves a sour taste when people do stuff like that. I still get upset everytime I walk past Big Buddy Heaters in a store from when I had one stolen four or five years ago!!

I think this stuff would be covered under homeowners insurance. I had cd's and stuff stolen from my car before and thats what covered it.

Items taken from your car are not covered under the auto policy, as they are not part of the car. Most of the items should be covered under your homeowners or renters insurance policy, but its subject to the policy deductible and it's possible that the CD's are not covered at all if stolen from a vehicle. On the other hand, there's a very good chance the window will be covered without a deductible. Before you file a personal property claim on your homeowner’s policy, make sure you discuss with your agent how this claim may affect your homeowner’s rates in the future. Sorry for your misfortune and good luck!

Agreed, the other posters are correct. I worked in insurance for a few years, and it would be your homeowners policy that covered your stolen goods.

I also had my tackle box stolen out of my trunk, and it was my homeowners policy that sent me on a rampage through Cabelas. \:\)

I would really talk to your agent. Sometimes small multiple claims will get you canceled. Sounds stupid but if you have more then 3 claims in a couple of years your rates will double or they will cancel your policy. Don't konw why but I have seen it done. You might want to eat the 500 bucks you would get after deductable for homeowners.

Comp claims are typically factored into new business rating, and I doubt they are really used to cancel a policy (unless fraud is involved).

It will affect your rates, but only if you have several of them (>3 most likely). But yes, talk to your agent and ask them how rating is affected by comp claims.

Anyone else think it's a bunch of malarky that you pay insurance for years and when you need it you have to worry they will cancel you for using it?

I made 2 claims in 15 years but they were a year and a half apart, they first raised my deductable from $500 to $1000, then 6 months later raised my rate, then I found a new company!

      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.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      This is the insulated model. 8x8. If anyone wants it this week I'll let it go for 240.00. Won't  find a better deal!
