      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
