      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 .

Black Friday Deals

Recommended Posts

I heard that Sam's Club will be selling a Wii package on Black Friday that contains the game unit, 3 controllers, 3 Nun Chuks and 3 games for $224. Sounds like a pretty good deal!

Sounds like a dream, if it's legitimate that would be a great deal. However I doubt that would happen as the system still retails for $250, controllers are still $40 each and Nunchuks's are still $20 each. Grand total of $470 before taxes and that still doesn't include any games.

It has been confirmed that this promo was a price mistake and the correct price will be $425.

I've heard rumors of some great LCD TV deals coming this holiday season. I have wanted to upgrade for awhile now, this might be the best time to do it.

If you have any money left now is a great time to get alot of bang for your buck.

There are quite a few sites that have the Black Friday deals listed already. There are definitely some good deals to be had on TV's right now.

Best Buy will probably have the best deals, and they usually post the best of the best online right before. TV's often are the best deals, as well as some cheap laptops. The best deals will go very quickly, so you are talking starting a camp out around 10PM (depending on your location). Some of the less tempting but still good deals will be around all day (like the projection TV's). I camped out for my monitor, was a great deal 2 years ago, and prices are just now falling to the price I got it for (only the current model doesn't have TV inputs).

I remember Circuit City used to have all single CDs for $9.99 Ahhhhh- those were the days. I doubt they do that anymore since they are broke. Oh, and not many people buy CDs anymore

Just google Black Friday Ads 2008 and you will find various places that have a lot of ads listed. I started planning on where I'll be hitting this year. I know I want a 46 to 50" LCD or plasma for sure this year. It's my big spending spree for the year on that day. I get up at 3 and usually am home by 9 or so with a truck load of carp we don't need but fun to get.

Smart move. We went out last year for the first time on black Friday, headed out at 4:00 AM. They were already sold out of the advertised "good deals" and the people were nuts. We swore we'd never do that again.

I went out early ONE year for Black Friday deals. If I needed a $1000 tv or computer I might think about it....otherwise there isnt enough money in the world to get me back out in that mess.

Lines to the BACK of Menards. We're talking hours just to check-out. I'll be watching tv instead!

Screw it, I am going fishing. Who is with me?

Actually my buddy and I are planning to jump in the truck and drive north until we find ice we can walk on. Thursday night after the turkey nap I am trying to get a group of people to go to Pickle Park in Fridley. Girlfriend's brother's band is playing so it should be a fun couple of days.

I've only ever gone out once, and it was to [PoorWordUsage] Sporting Goods to get a Garmin etrex Legend Cx (color with map card capability) with case, cord, and Topo maps for the whole country for $150.00. Gave it to my dad that year.

Otherwise, I just let my wife and Mother-in-law go. They have done it for years, and she says she gets over half of her shopping done in about 4 hours. As long as I don't have to go, I don't care.

No, IPOD works, just had $10 in my pocket and wanted to get a CD for the wife, since I was buying PS3 games. Figured it would go over better when I tried to sneak the bag into the house. laugh

Avoid the WII and get a decent game system. I got one last year and I am still waiting for them to release some decent games. Unless you like games like wii sports and lego whatever. The only good game thats come out has been the starwars one. Its good enough if your 7 but if you want more adult titles than hannah montana look elsewhere

I got a Wii and like it for what it is. FYI, Best Buy has an Xbox 360 with 60gb HDD and four games for $299. You can order them online tonight too. Acutally can get a lot of it ordered online if you just look at the stores.

I went out this morning and got myself a TV. went to wal-mart and got a 42" LCD for $598. It's a polaroid, so it's not as good as a sony, but I've wanted to upgrade for some time and the deal seemed pretty good!! I'm pretty excited! too bad the kids are home, so far all I've been able to see on it are Tom and Jerry and Dora!

that being said, I'll NEVER go out on black friday morning again!! that was nuts!!

That is nuts, every year it happens to a few people it seems, just my opinion, but it ain't worth it, wonder how long it took before someone decided to check on him

    • Only made it out for one day for resident opener this last weekend but we had a great hunt. Took the day off and got out yesterday and battled the heat. I almost chose to call it quits early but went slow and took our time but had to take lots of breaks in the field. It was 74 degrees out and if I found water the dog got dunked. Was pretty slow day didn't see a single bird or shoot my first bird until 3:30pm. Ended up shooting all 3 of my birds in the same WIA in the span of an hour. Dog pointed a group of 3 hens in the same spot and then another by itself. Went about 30 yards further and dog locked up. Flushed bird it was rooster and dropped it on the first shot. As I shot 2 other roosters got up in gun range. With just one shell left in my O/U I rushed a shot going for a double, doh. Focused on where downed bird went down and sure enough another rooster gets up in the same spot it went down. Rushed both shots thinking it was the same bird I already knocked down. doh x2 Fortunately dog was able to retrieve first bird so was nice to put one in the vest for our first bird of the year. Took a water break and regrouped as that was a lot of excitement in a short amount of time and dog was overheated. Sat there for about 20 mins and let dog catch his breath. Started working field again and we no more and got started and dog locks up. Flush bird and its a rooster and he only needed one shot before he folded. Retrieved to hand and continued on.   Continue working to end of the property and saw a few more hens and one other rooster that I didn't want to drop over the water and thick cattails. He didn't fly far and hoped to get him on the way back as we walked side we hadn't covered yet. Dog locked up again on the other side and I let the bird get out a ways. Dropped it on the first shot and figured we were done for the day as it folded hard. It ended up being a runner and took off straight for the mud and thick cattails. We tried to track it, found some feathers so thought we were right on it. But once the dog got buried deep in the thick stuff it was just too warm. No scent going through there and he was getting way too overheated so I called him off the track.  We did end up getting our 3rd bird of the day with another nice point and retrieve. Was a good day to be out despite the heat. I spend the rest of the day scouting out other areas to hunt. Put about 350 miles on the truck and other than that one walk didnt see anything else. Did shoot a couple coons though and found a great set of antlers.  Unfortunately I forgot to bring my gopro and only took a couple pics.
    • I have had good luck with the eagle claw inline reel and love the freespool option. I have 3 of them and they all work great.
    • A few scrapes in the woods, cameras show the big boys moving at night still but they are around. Another week and I will start light rattling. I am  saving my best spots for Halloween on, unless a camera shows big boy daylight activity.
    • Think I saw somewhere that is Parise missed 10 games he can go on LTIR, between him and Coyle out 8 weeks we should be fine with the cap. Way to take one for the team boys. 
    • Great job for this kid!
    • I have to stop procrastinating, ice will be here before I know it! I made a little progress lately, I painted the inside, installed cedar accessory boards and thermostat and hopefully by this weekend have the rubber flooring down. I also ordered the termination cap for the furnace, should be seeing that in the next week or so. I also have a custom cushion being built to fit my bench seating. Got a question on rattle reels, I am looking at the all aluminum ultimate  rattle reels. Anybody use them? They seem a little spendy but not too concerned about the price, looking to see if there are any reviews out there. If those don’t seem to fit your need, what other brands have u used and feedback on them would be nice also. I will take some pics this weekend for a quick update.  
    • Sport's Show is a great place. I purchased the grey Frabil for under $200.00 But that was 5 years ago
    • You mean like Chicago is doing with Hossa?  Great idea...think of the space that would clear up!
