      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 .

This is a sad storie. Last friday I spent the night at my friends matt's house because we were going out goose hunting the next day. I was cleaning out the passenger seat. My gun benelli nova was sitting there. It was dark out and he put my gun on the roof of the car. Then we went to the store. We forgot about the gun. Then we heard a big thud AND I SAW SPARKS. frown.gif I thought it was my tool box. Then I asked Matt where he put my gun he said the roof. I teared up a bit. I made a u-turn and went back. we found it and pulled off to the side of the road. There were cars coming and they were running over the parts of my gun. It was like there was a wrench on my heart and every time a car would run over it that wrench turn tighter. When I got my nova I looked at it. The stock broke in two and the muzzle looked bent. The good thing is I have a good friend who is a FFL dealer and I got a nova the next day. I dont know how both Matt and I could have forgot about it. I just had a crappy and expense weekend. Also I am not saying its Matts fault. I also most cryed myself to sleep that night. But after I was talking to pete (FFL dealer) and he said he done the same thing with a remington 11-87 but that was brand new and he didnt find it. Its just one of those things you live and learn. frown.gif

kc, have you talked to your auto insurance company? If you have comprehensive insurance you might have coverage for this, minus your deductable. Are you a member of the NRA or other hunter organization? Perhaps there too, you may have some insurance protection.

I did the same thing to my Rem. 870 back when I was 18 or 19. I was driving a gravel road and went back when I saw something in my rear view mirror. I thought I hit a rabbit or something. I shot that gun for another 15 years. My friends would tease me about my "bent barrel" every time I missed a shot. Sorry to hear about your bad luck.

If I did go thought the auto company I thought I would need to make a police report. My gun with parts plus my new gun was only $292. So it is a dent in the check book but nothing big.

Your gun, your shells, and your license. If you are in a boat your pfd. After years of hunting and seeing many silly scenarios, those are the rules I live with and have taught my sons. Anyone that hunts with me knows the rules. You can still hunt without your lunch. If I am riding in your car and you get a ticket you pay the fine. Crazy things happen when you are going out in the dark very early in the morning. Rule #1 no gun, no shells, no lic.=no hunt. Rule#2 if in boat, motor will not be started if anyone is not wearing the pfd. You can't go wrong.

Man that is some horrible news. I did the same thing with my SX2 about two weeks after I got it. Didn't total it but sure gave it some good scars. Sorry to hear it.

Just about did the same thing a couple years ago with my Browning ABolt rifle. We were loading up for the hunt and I was making room in the cab for a couple guys. Set the gun on the roof of the truck and everyone loaded up. Took off down the road and I heard a rattle on the roof. Instantly I knew what was going on. I slowed and got out and it was still there. Got luck for sure the sling was in the door so it couldn't move.

Well I felt really stupid for doing that. But after posting this and seeing how many other people did it. I don't feel as dumb.

We all have stupid moments from time to time.

I remember reading on the forums last year about a guy that tried backing his pick up with the topper open into his garage and bent the back door all up and broke the glass etc. I thought to myself you have to be pretty dumb to do that. Well a week later I did the exact same thing. So I can put myself in to that same dumb category.

Two years ago me and my bro. were at the range with our TC hand guns. For what ever rason after we done shooting and putting things in the truck he laid his TC on the roof of my truck. I drove a mile to the four lane and went to town to do somthing and then we went to my house, an hour later while unloading he relizes his gun is gone. To shorten this, his gun was found on the 4 lanevby some two very nice people that turned it in at the locale PD.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
