      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 .

Can I cancel my order?

Recommended Posts

Ordered a musky lure on-line from a shop in Hayward on May 2nd. They advised that it would be shipped in 7 to 10 days. I have made several calls and was told that it would arrive on Wednesday the 14th. It never arrived. I called on Thursday the 15th and their representative advised that it was UPS'd on Wednesday the 14th and I should receive on the Friday the 16th. It was not received on the Friday, nor Saturday, or Monday the 19th.

Since they didn't give me a UPS tracking number and they haven't responded to my e-mail (I want things in writing from this point forward)...am I stuck?

i've found it's a good idea to ask for a tracking number when shipping. far as they know the driver lost the package. you did and they don't know it i'd say that's a little fishy. mabe their out of stock and waiting for a shipment and figure as long as they get it to you by opener you'll be happy? who knows. but they need to produce the product or your money or threaten them with the BBB. worked for me a few times. good luck

Wade'e Wobbler. I had a hard time finding one and googled "Wade's Wobbler" and clicked the first link that showed up. I figured that they were a reputable company but I am concerned with their lack of service. I'm out $20 so it's not a huge loss, but just the principal bothers me greatly. I should have just gone to Thorne Bros and asked them to order.

Wade's Wobbler is a great jerk-bait bait. He has all new colors and some new sizes this year and they are really sweet. Some also have bucktails attached and some have grub trailers. It is also one of the most durable baits made.

What I do to the wobblers is I put 2 screw eyes in the back of the bait along the sides and attach 2 small nickel Colorado blades for some flash and vibration. I throw them plain too, but I jut thought the flash was a nice addition.

I talk to Wade on a weekly basis, great guy and a great bait maker.

Good Luck on your next order.

You'll love the Wobbler!

I found your problem...if you got the same result I did when I Googled Wades Wobbler.

That place is notorious for problems like this.

Generally, you are charged when your order is shipped. So cancelling wont really do any good since you have already paid for it.

This sucks, but I'm not sure what avenues you have to fix it.

Hopefully, you get the bait or your money back. Good luck

Thank you 10,000 casts for the tip! If I do get the lure, I will consider those improvements.

Mojo...yup that's them. I'll just consider it a loss and order from Thorne Bros if I don't get it. I should have ordered from them in the first place, however I made a kneejerk decision and now regret.

If you paid for it by credit card, call the credit card company and dispute the charge. If you do not receive your product, the cc company will remove the charge and charge the company you purchased from a chargeback fee.

Thanks for the tip - Dan. I will admit that I need more patience. I am mostly upset that the sales rep lied to me. He said he UPS'd it on Monday and it would arrive on Wednesday and it never arrived. So I called on Thursday and he tells me that he UPS'd it on Wednesday and I should expect it on Friday. I don't think it is too much to ask for honesty and not repling to my e-mail that I sent inquiring about a tracking number has me upset as well. That's just poor service.

I do understand though, I do need to let it go....I'm not going to be using it anytime soon, and I will just buy somewhere else.

Pig did you read his story? How long do you let it drag out? Ever heard of customer service? June 7th, what if he was headed to WI? Harder and harder to come by, just another fine example of poor service in retail. It is about honesty and integrity, if you can ship it then ship it, if you can't ship then tell the customer.

If it's who I think it is, I had an order from them recently that missed one item. I emailed them about it and they said it would be coming in another week. It indeed showed up, but unless I asked they wouldn't have told me about it. I just don't think they stay well on top of things unless the customer is standing in front of them.

I would also say go with Musky Tackle Online for your next order. You will have no such issues dealing with them and you will get your order promtly.

That's pretty poor. No matter what industry you're in, you need to be upfront with your customers. Even if you've made a mistake...tell your customer that. You're going to gain a lot more respect and you will gain and keep a lot more customers by doing so. If I would ever tell a customer that I've shipped their product and I didn't do it, I'm going to expect to lose that customer. Not only that, I'm sure that customer will tell a number of people about it and I'll never earn those people's business either.

I still think you should have some recourse. You should be able to call them up and ask them to refund your order. It's not that difficult to refund a credit card. Tell them that you haven't received the order and that it hasn't even been shipped yet. Don't ask if it's shipped. Tell them that it hasn't. If it HAS been shipped it will put them on the spot to provide proof of that. I would say you've been more than patient. More patient than I would be in that situation!

I will call musky tackle online.

They finally sent me an e-mail and advised that the order got messed up and if I wanted to cancel the order that I would not be charged. I advised to cancel the order.

In a way I feel bad, accidents happen, but I just wish their responce time and an update would have been better. If I knew that it would have taken a while...no problem. I believe I am a patient person. Oh well. Thanks for the responces to all.

yeah i work in customer service, not denying it's bad service, i definitely wouldn't go back to them again, but i wouldn't have clicked the first link that popped up on google either.

perspective - it's not hundreds of dollars worth of stuff, it's one bait. i sincerely hope hillbiehle gets it soon and catches a bunch of fish on it, but what is going to be helped by posting online? if a guy really gets raked over the coals by all means, posts some names, but it's one bait and one week late, like i said, can't get it wet for 2 weeks anyway. this tread just kept going on and on so i put my two cents in. i'm not hating on anybody

    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions? 
    • Gobbler down...
    • Even with all the snow gone, they still dont want to come out in the fields. Even this morning i really got on the slate, this one come in at 640. Now im cayching brown trout. Good luck fellas
