      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 .

Favorite Bow sights

Recommended Posts

Looking to depart from my traditional 5 pin cobra that has worked but could use an upgrade. Just curious to see what is hype and what works well. I would like one that has larger pins and a light would be helpful. Also, I have heard that some of the newer sights have a tendency to be loud.

I've used HHA sites on my last three bows- been very happy with them. You can choose the size of the pin, so if you want a bigger pin, you can have it. They also make a light that mounts on the scope if you want that.

If you're willing to part with the cash, Spott Hoggs are REALLY tough to beat. Best sight on the markety, IMO. However, they're dang proud of their product and price accordingly...

I have nothing but great things to say about my Sword Twilight Hunter. It has a light and you can get pins in different sizes. My top pin is .029 and the bottom four are .019.

Look at Shaffer's Fiber Optic sight. I switched to this one last season and man what a difference in low-light this sight has made!

Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.

Unless you really need the pins, get a 3-pin sight or a single pin sight depending on your bow. I like less clutter and I've chosen the "wrong pin" before and missed in the heat of the moment.

If money is tight, the newer Tru-glo sights are just as good, very bright and easy to adjust.

If you're getting more technical, I love my HHA single pin. Sword, Spothogg and Copper John are also great sights.

I have had a spot hogg hogg-it and I didn't like how the pins adjusted. I prefer the axcel armortech sights. I'm gonna get a armortech hd pro soon

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • Thanks. I decided to go with my gut, and ordered medium light action 8'6" Depthmaster rods. Spent some time trolling with them the other day, and I think they'll be fine. Just gotta remember to be careful with the larger fish around the boat when netting. Now if I could just better understand seasonal locations/presentations for my local walleye, I'd be all set! Trolled for 4.5 hrs without so much as a nibble yesterday. Trolled various cranks and harnesses the entire time, at different depths/speeds (1.0-1.5 mph with harnesses, and 1.8 -2.4 with cranks), hoping to make contact with one. I did find the Precission Trolling app to be pretty darn accurate with my dive curves though. So that was refreshing ... :-)
    • Nice bird! After my uneventful day Sat I gave Sunday a break Going out Monday morning to see If I can tag one.
    • Just me, or is 7:15 odd for birds to fly up to roost? 2 just flew up 75 yds out.
    • Congrats Donbo. Great looking bird.  
    • Way to go Ryan, and Dad. Can't wait to see the pics. Congrats
    • Well good weekend in the woods! Never got a bird in range! Will be back out! Nice Donbo!!!
    • Good job Wally, always love to see your early season successes.  Nice bird AS!  Long season ahead with no tag in the pocket huh?
    • Good job guys! Great start to the season.
    • Totally agree with you featherslayer. I have a bud who will be down May 2. Just as much fun calling for him and figuring strategy as shooting one myself. More fun actually.
    • Very disappointing season so far. Getting swept by Tampa Bay is unacceptable! No reason to believe we won’t get swept by the Yankees either. 4 game series against the twins could be exactly what Giancarlo Stanton needs to break out of his slump.
