      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 .

New goose call?

Recommended Posts

I am getting pumped for the season. I fulled out all my equipment today and my goose call is missing. It has been quite a few years since I bought old reliable. Any recomendations for a new call?

If you're going cheap I like Mick Lacy, otherwise Tim Grounds or Death Row.

Actually the TG poly Super Mag is kind of in-between (around $70 I think) and is an awesome call.

I have a tim grounds real thang which is an acrylic call that i would be willing to part with. Great call, just was an impulse buy and dont really need another goose call. If your interested i would sell it for $85 shipped/or picked up either way.

I have the same call and love it...definitely a deal worth making if you're looking for a serious call!

Quack Addict-Do you have any of your calls down here in the metro so I can fire one up? I've always been a Foiles guy but, but I'd be more than happy to support a MN company. My clients are always asking me about calls and callings, if I know the product is good I'd be more than happy to start giving you a solid recommendation.

The SMH is a good, easy to use call. If you want a cheaper call, the Grounds Poly SM is real good too for about $60. Then for real cheap, a lot of people learn on the Buck Gardner Canada Hammer for about $15.

Death Row Calls seem to be the new upcoming call company though. I've never gotten the chance to blow one but it seems like A LOT of people really like them and recommend them.

I like the Zink Little Man. Easy to blow, great range. It's the only goose call on my lanyard.

For cheap calls, give the RNT Goozilla a look.

To answer your question, I know Krueger Farms carrys them but not sure if they have a shop where you can try out a call. Other than that I don't know much. More of an online store, fairs/sport shows where you can check them out.

If you are interested in trying out a call, I have a Life Sentence, Short Drop and Inmate that does not have the Broke In Guts (BIGs) that you could try out and maybe borrow a Inmate w/ BIGs from Cory for you to try out as well. I do not come through the cities as much but when I do I will let you know. You could give Cory a call as well and talk over things with him, he'll be glady to help you out!

    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
    • Coulda stopped the story there. Already too much work!
