      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 .

Here's the deal: My dad is looking for a new .22 pistol for plinking. His only specs are It needs to be chambered for .22 LR, Semi Auto and in Stainless Steel finish. He's thinking either Ruger or Smith & Wesson, but is open to other options.

Any reccomendations?

Thanks!

I have a browning buckmark.I really like it. Very accurate and good looking. You can really deck them out if you want.

Ruger with a cheap red (Contact Us Please) scope is the way I go.

Get a few extra clips too. I load up on eggs when

they go on sale and hit the sand pit. Great way to

have good cheap fun.

The Ruger with a bull barrel is a great gun for the price. I have one that i have put thousands of rounds through. My only complaint is that it is a PITA to clean and as I'm sure you know the .22 rimrire is a filthy little cartridge. That being said, when it needs to be replaced I'll be getting another one.

I agree, the Ruger is a great gun for the money. Very reliable and accurate! Good luck!

The Ruger bull barrell is a great accurate gun. I had a S&W that shot very poorly. I took it back and they acknowledged that that particular model had problems. Traded up for the Ruger.

i agree the ruger with the bull barrel and a nice scope to boot also in stainless. i have a blued one and it looks intimadating and is a roit to shoot as far as clean up goes i always bring out a tarp to shoot over. clean up is a matter of folding up and pouring into a box. works great. ... paul

I'll second the Browning buckmark, its a nice handling gun. I got the camo model and love the unique look of it.

Thanks for the help everyone!

He's still undecided, but leaning toward a Ruger.

I own a berreta Neos, nice gun, only thing that gave me trouble was over oiled/greased mags, once cleaned, never gave me another problem... nicely balanced, good sized grips....I have also shot the buckmark and the smith and wesson, both really nice also....the berreta is loud, like all berreta I guess ( own two )

      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?
