      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 .

What waders?

Recommended Posts

Seabass77

There are so many choices of waders out there, I'm not sure what's right for my situation.

I will be hunting all different types of areas, mostly Minnesota. I don't have a dog to use either, so I will be doing a fair share of walking thru muck.

It seems there is not one pair of waders for all conditions, you will either have to be hot in early season or cold late in the year.

Canvas? (cabelas brush busters?) Neoprene? Breathable (cabelas dry-plus?)

Thanks for your help.

SEABASS,
I purchased the Brush Busters last year and I really like them. I had no problems late season keeping warm. My 2 cents

I like neoprene. If you do some walking just wear a pair of wader fleece pants underneath. I wear neoprenes for duck hunting and water trapping. In the boat and in and out of the truck. Dont sweat bad either. In early season they can be hot. I have the 5mm hodgemans I think. I have had the same pair for 4 seasons of hard use. But I always have a back - up pair with me.

Seabass--

Neoprenes are extremely tough when you get the thick ones. Protrapper mentioned that his are 5mm, which is what I use and recommend. The big drawback, as mentioned, is that they will be hot in warm weather. I have a pair of Cabela's Dry-Plus that are VERY nice for summer fishing or early waterfowling. They are durable and light. I've also worn these in cold weather with down-insulated underwear, which works out well. Either of these would be great choices.

Good Gunnin'

Has anyone tried these?

RedHead® Bone Dry® Hobbs Creek

I don't know anything about the redhead brand, I think it is Bass Pro Shops private label.

Go to the hodgman website. They have unbelieveabley low prices on discontinued camo patterns. My son has the chest high neoprene and I have the waist high. I would go with the chest high if I hunted alone. When the water gets too deep for me in goes the kid grin.gif When the kid outgrows them their mine grin.gif Ken

if you want a good pair of waders you can't go wrong with Rocky I have had mine for 4 years with no problem they are only 3.5 mm and have no trouble staying warm late in the season. And your best bet to get good waders at a reasonable price is Reeds in walker it is a hall but if you do during ther Muskie fever sale you can get some awesome prices i bought my waders for 50 on sale and they cost 145 normally. Just my thoughts

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
