      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 .

Under Armor??

I'm looking for some imput Under Armor. I've been told it's not a good source of heat when you are just going to sit around. But if you are moving it is awesome. Have any of you fellow fishermen had this problem? I'm looking at going and buying a set.

Thanks

I had the cold eather stuff and didnt think it was any better than some of the other under wear I have used. It way more expensive as well. I didnt think it was worth the extra cash at all. I also dont like how tight it fits.

I absolutely love the stuff. I have 3 mock T long sleeve shirts. One strictly for Bow Hunting, One for general hunting and one for all purpose. Two pair of bottoms and a couple of pairs of gloves. I like the tight fit as it seems to stay tucked in very nicely and doesn't add any bulk.

you are better off going with either Duofold or the Gander version GSX, they are the same stuff but they cost a fraction of what under armor costs.

last year i bought a set of cold gear from the cabelas tent sale, i paid less than what it would cost for a cold gear camo mock T. I just got plain green since i always wear it under clothes, color didn't matter. i like the tight fit, no bulk, wicks water away when getting sweaty.

Save your money. I think the stuff is way over rated. I also do not like the tight fit, and I actually felt cold as soon as I put them on. My better half had the same opinion.

They went back where they came from and we bought the Duo Folds from Gander and could not be happier. (at half the price)

I would say you need to try it out. My buddy and sister love them... I personally hate them. I like my other kinds or long under wear much much better. Guess it's all personal choice

I didn't like the stuff at all. It's for wicking, but what I use, I think is the ultimate in warmth and wicking, comfort and non weight are fleece mock turtlenecks. I'm amazed with my less layers and more comfort when I start my layers with a fleece mock turleneck. I never get cold.

I wear the cheaper Cabelas version and really like the stuff. I wear it as it is intended, part of a layer system. It keeps you dry and I like the tight fit, it doesn't ball up in your armpits or elbows.

I agree with the layers. I got a set of the black tight Duofold base layer as a gift and hated it at first as I just wore it alone under the rest of my clothing. No warmth and wind blocking by itself. It is not designed for warmth, though, but for wicking. So I put a second layer of Cheapo long underwear over it and then dressed normal (if not lighter than normal). After roofing my Dad's garage and not sweating or feeling cold on a 20 deg cloudy windy day, I was sold on it as a base layer. Now that combo is my go-to. Haven't tried the U.A. gear, I'd rather spend that elsewhere.

On the other hand, I would have loved to bought some of that stock early! wink.gif It is EVERYWHERE and EXPENSIVE.

I use the Heat gear and love it. My brother in Law swore by it in Kuwait and I gave it a shot and it works great. grin.gif

I ran Track and crosscountry in high school last yr and we originally used underarmour as a wicking layer for colder days. Granted it isnt made for warmth alone but by wicking your sweat away it keeps heat as a by product. Absoulutely love the stuff as again mentioned part of a layering system. I bought a generic set this spring and Im lookign forward to field testing while bowhunting next fall.

I have found it great for its intended purpose, as a base layer for wicking perspiration. Really eliminates that wet clammy feeling against your skin. It is overpriced, shop off season; buy heat gear in winter, cold gear in summer for the best deals.

      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.

      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!

      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...
