      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

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.

      Sorry, don't remember TJ Hooker.  Besides I make it a practice to avoid hookers....  (rim shot)

        This post is turning into an 80's  TJ HOOKER episode! To fun to turn off an so bad it needs to be made fun of. : )

      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
