      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 .

Hunting with 10 strangers, any good orange vests out there?

Recommended Posts

I bought a "quick spot" vest from cabelas today. I like the fact that it is light weight, and does not go under the arms for chafing issues. My concern is in the field. I can see this thing being a pain, having to fix it quite a bit. The vest I have velcros around the collar, and around the waist leaving the chest exposed, and just a thin fabric on the dogs back. I am not looking for a full vest, but do not see this thing preforming too well. Is there another product that you guys like? Maybe I just have to give this thing a chance. Cabelas only had 2 options, the skid plate type, and this lighter back strap

I've got the skid plate one from Cabelas and works great. Just make sure it is large enough for the leg holes. I bought one that just fit and had chafing issues. Up sized it this year and no problems.

I have the vest you are refering to and it works well. It makes your dog stand out very well in thick cover. It stays on better than i thought it would.

He hasn't over heated yet.

Thanks, Got out and used it today. My dog simply forgot it was on when we started hunting, and it performed well. The vest pulls on the collar a bit, but didnt seem to bother

I bought a Remington orange dog vest a few years ago to keep my females belly from getting tore up. It stayed on very well. It worked so well my hunting partner bought one for his male. He used it pheasant opener. The dog didn't seem to be himself that morning so after a few hours he took the vest off the dog. The dog

did great after that.

I have a male now and thought I'd see how the old vest fit him. After scratching my head wondering why his undercarriage is covered up. I figured out its supposed to go on his back not his belly, but it worked good on a female.

Never had an Overheating issue. But on the warmer days I leave it off of him. Didn't even think about it over opening weekend. Now he wears it every time we hunt. doesn't even realize it is on him.

    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.

    • Yep.  Before we were married, camped at fall lake MEA weekend.  In a tent.  Snow falling in the cornflakes.   I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.  Or something like that.  Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy.
