      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.

with all due respect, the season doesn't open until June 7th. relax and give it the rest of the month.

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

    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
    • Down this way I have been getting most my fish around weed edges and weed clumps. Trigs for good edges and chatterbaits worked on bottom or over the weeds, kinda how I would fish a jig. Water around here is pretty murky right now. Docks have been good on those lakes with dirty water and not so many weeds.
