      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 .

Cabelas "After Hours" Sale

Recommended Posts

PFUNK

Anybody else get an invite to attend this sale on Sunday the 16th? I got an invite in the mail because I'm a Club Visa holder and I'm just curious if the "employee pricing" is worth it? Sounds like you may get decent deals on clothing, especially the Cabelas branded stuff? Also food and drinks provided. I imagine there is a pretty good crowd. Is it worth the 50 mile drive for me?

Not worth it. Many of the sale prices are better than the employee pricing. Lines are insane I'm not going

That's funny I always find great deals. I got a OTTER XT1200 Lodge for the employee price of 824.99 regular 969.99, a 145.00 off seems like a good deal. It all depends on what you buy, cabelas brand items have the most discount, guns and electronics have the least amount. Then you use the 20 off coupon, and that brings it down to $804.99.....

Have a friend that works for Cabela's...hard goods (guns, augers, blinds, decoys etc.) are least discount (typically 10%-15%). Soft goods (clothes) are biggest discount of around 25%-30% with Cabela's brand being the biggest discount.

There are certain 'deals' to be had...but for the most part not as good as regular flier sales.

I saw the following somewhere about Veterans Day Pricing. Check before you go, just in case my info is wrong.

Cabela’s is giving their standard employee discount to all US military veterans, active duty military, Guard/Reserves, law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel. Discount varies from 5% to 20%, depending on the item.

Flyer deals may be just as good or better than some of the discounts, but don't forget that there are limited items in the flyers vs. getting EVERYTHING for a discount. Some things never go on sale so the card holder nights are a great way to take advantage of getting something you want for less money. Standard employee discount runs 10%-25% depending on brand and item. Yes, hard items tend to be in the 10-15% range, but most all clothes go for 20-25% off so it's a great time to pick up some cold weather gear for less. Lines are long yes, but don't be in a hurry and you'll enjoy the time there and pick up some good deals.

I've went the last couple years when they offered the employee pricing. It is a good deal if there are things you need that rarely go on sale. Also gives you an excuse to make the drive to Cabelas...

50 miles isn't that far anymore. If you need something from Cabelas then it will be worth it. At the very least it's time spent checking things out.

Report back on what you thought of the sale.

Well the sale was alright. Nothing great, but I needed a couple things and I was happy with what I paid. Lines to check out were insanely long. They wrappred from the registers all the way to the back past the bargain cave and boot sections. We just took our time and waited for them to die down while we snacked on the free food which was pretty good. The discounts on hard goods were a little lower, usually in the 10% range. Clothing was closer to 20% from what I could gather. I ended up leaving with a pair of Lacrosse aerohead boots, a couple shimano sienna 500's, and a neck gaiter for $160. This was with an extra $20 off that they let me stack on top of the employee pricing. Usually they don't let you stack coupons so that was nice.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
