      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 .

My new bow!!

Recommended Posts

Sorry about all the crying about choosing a new bow. It was all worth it today when I got to go pick it up. A HUGE thumbs up to Neil at Cabin Fever for getting me all setup! He asked if I was sure and when I nodded my head the wheels were in motion. About an hour later I had a new PSE X-Force in 60lb weight with 29" DL, HHA 5019 sight, Ripcord rest and the new Octane stabilizer!!!

Oh man is this thing sweet! I can't wait to get the sight tape on the sight so I can really start using this thing.

A guy at the shop was really interested in my bow so he asked if I would chrono it against his. My bow set at 60lbs with a 390 grain arrow shot 296 FPS!!! crazygringrin Thats 75.89 KE, from a 60lb bow.

Here it is

Read your post the other day and was going to put in my .02. But figured you already had good enough advice. That beeing, go with what suits you, what you are comfortable with. I will have to say i think you made an excellent choice. I just bought the same bow about a month ago. There may be quiter smoother bows out there but this one is pretty darn good considering the performance you get out of it. Give em a few more years and they will come out with a high speed bow that is ultra quiet and smooth. Then we will be buying new ones again. the cycle never ends. Enjoy the new bow. Congrats.

Also, just thought i would share this with you. I have mine set at 70#'s, 29" draw with 440 grn arrows. I am getting 306fps with 91 Ft Lbs of KE. So you have alot of potential for more speed and KE if you ever feel you need it.

Aww [PoorWordUsage] - now he's going to be outshooting me again.

Seriously dude... I'm glad the agonizing is over and you have your new toy. My wife's going to be unhappy when she sees me drooling over new bows though.

Just remember on that HHA sight - ALWAYS CHECK THE TAPE before you get out in the field (remember last time at the range??) smile

A little more tweaking this weekend and I think its locked in. I was having a loud buzz and it turned out the stabilizer was defective. I don't know how long till they can get a new one, but I've got a Vibracheck on there for now. It is much quieter.

I changed modules and am drawing about 28 1/2 right now. Its much more comfortable and I'm more consistent too since I'm not drawing too long.

    • I would say that it is pretty typical that Social Studies and History classes in High School are often a decade or two behind.   It takes time for the teacher colleges and textbooks and curricula to get updated and approved and incorporated.    Also giving things a good while to cool down is safer as well.  I don't recall my kids getting taught about Vietnam, and that was a decade or so after it was over.   I wonder if kids in high school today are getting taught anything about 9/11 and Kuwait and Iraq and war on terror and all that?   And if so, what they are being taught?

    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Water temps are hovering in the low 60’s despite the very fall like weather we are experiencing. 

      The scenic Canadian shore lines are coming to life with various critters. Otter, bear and more making preparations for the coming winter.

      Walleye fishing in Canada is excellent with a jig and minnow or shiner. The most productive environment has been gaps at 15-18’ with plenty of current present. Good numbers of perch are being caught off deep edges or reefs at 30’ or more. Crappies are a little more difficult this week, the best chances are on a light set up.

      Around Minnesota, walleyes can still be had with a crankbait but favored methods are switching over to a jig tipped with a shiner on main lake points between 20 and 24’. 

      Muskies are moving deeper with anglers transitioning from casting to trolling. There is still time to boat a big fall fish!

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I had a Great Wars class in HS, teacher spent most of the semester drawing castle defenses on the blackboards that wrapped around three quarters of the classroom.....moats, arrowslits, murder holes, talus, and trou de loup's.  WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam were covered in the last week of class.  *chuckle*  We even watched Monty Python and The Holy Grail.

    • Nah, about the time the libbers started taking over education and just ignored anything not on their brainwashing agenda! 
    • Next time it happens call them before unplugging. They can run a system check to see if it's on their end our yours. Then you know it's time to buy a new 55" inch set!
    • From what i can recall from my school days the teachin lady never really covered the Vietnam war as well as the Korean war in class. Maybe our textbooks were too old but did many of you have much learnin on these wars.  They covered the civil war and world wars but almost skipped over these.  I assume it was because we pretty much got our posteriors handed to us and that doesn't sit well.
    • I have Comcast service and a problem has developed.  The Samsung 50 inch TV is about 6 years old.  A couple of times in the past few days the screen goes blank.  The audio still works.  I have tried a few things but eventually found that what works is to simply unplug the entire system and let it sit for a short time.  Once plugged back in and the thing is allowed to reboot it works.  Any ideas? Thanks for your time. Tom

    • I really don't give a shiat either way. You're the one who constantly gets his panties in a twist over this stuff. Really chafes your nethers, huh? When I saw the solo Pittsburgh guy standing there I said "Good for him", and as for the rest of the team in the locker room I said "Good for them." That's how freedom works.
