      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 .

I just got a Hoyt Vectrix, used to shoot the Hoyt Ultramag. The vectrix is SWEET. Virtually no hand shock, butter smooth draw, haven't had time to site it in yet, but will this week. Once you shoot a newer bow you will find out what you have been missing. Much more fun to shoot also!

I have two bad shoulders and I shot Hoyt's and liked them except the draw was so hard on my shoulders. I ended up getting the Drenalin by Mathew's. I would check out there new bow's that are just coming out you can see them by going to mathewsarchery.com I like the speed of the Hoyts but not the draw.

I think my Mathews LX is smooth, It's an older bow but it still get's the job done. It's fast quiet and draws nice. I had a Hoyt Ultrmag and I like the LX better.

Both my husband and I shoot a Hoyt Vectrix. We love these bows. There is so many good bows out there now, it's a tough choice. We don't plan on switching anytime soon. Just have to find what you like, what feels the best, and what fits you the best. Then get out the checkbook because none of them are cheap!! grin

I shoot a hoyt magnatec, a little older than some of these guys, But have shot the '08 hoyt and matthews, both shoot great.. I am a lil more sold on the matthews simply because its lighter (bow weight). But dont rule out some other brands...Buddy shoots a guardian by bowtech, very comparable to the matthews, may even be a bit smoother (never shot em side by side), but you wont save any $$$ goin that route, good luck lookin for a new slinger

I have the hoyt lazertech for hunting and love it. I would like to upgrade soon but dont have the money too. I aslo have the hoyt 38 Pro for target archery and this is a smooth bow and easy to shoot. Now i just wish i got this bow in camo instead of an anodized color cause i would use it for hunting.

Dietz- You will have to let me know how the new alphamax shoots. That looks like a sweet bow and want to shoot it so bad. I may have a chance to shoot it over Christmas break as I will be back at my moms and I will be at the hoyt dealership for a few days!

    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
    • 3 smallies in 30 min yesterday. 
    • That is the truck that I always buy from, they park at the detailing place that used to be a car wash.  Why were you talking about Super America? They haven't been there for a decade. But either one would be a pretty long drive at the moment. Might have to try sous vide on some...when I get there.
