      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 have used gummy bears,licorice, candy hearts, candy corn. Gummy bears suck to get apart. All of them brought in bees. If I use it in the future it will be the day before I hunt and in the cooler days. I had to abandon one site because the wasp were so thick and drunk on the candy I couldn't get into the bait site safely anymore.

Kenny's candy in Perham is another supplier for bulk mistakes. Wouldn't hurt to check them out if your driving in the area. Don't know what they charge but know you can get it from them.

Boar-

I think I went to the same guy last year and you are right it was real cheap- I put out 100 lbs of gummy worms and the bears would eat that last- I would also put out donuts and other good items and that gummy worms were always the last to be eaten but they did eat it-

Boar,

From what I understand with the supplier is you have to get your order in quickly. He runs out of the stuff pretty fast.

Bring the biggest truck you have. Buy some 55 gal. drums with lockable tops.

Like someone else already stated, make sure you have a site that is getting hit on a daily basis, otherwise the stinging/biting insects will get to the sweets before the bears do!

Thanks guys, I was thinking the same thing on the insects, I would,nt start using candy till I go hit regularly, but also I use pastry to, last year I had alot of wasp looking bugs in my bait pile, not like the ones ya see making a nest under your faucet trim, maybe their hornets. But these suckers were big an looked like they could do damage, but when I was baiting an cleaning out old food from last years dissapearing bear trick, as long as I was calm slow moving they would,nt bother me. I used doughnuts berries an cream lunch, pizza an topped with burnt honey syrup. thats alot of sugar an comparable to candy I'm sure. But nothing was eating it so it attracted the big ugly buzzing thingys. I plan on using pizza an dog food alittle syrup to top till I get hit, then start adding candy to try an seal the deal. As far as putting in my order to that guy in cambridge, I have famly a half hour away an so I'm gonna call him an tell him to pick up what he has on hand via cell phone. Thanks guys later boar. Oh year I found meat scrapes for 6 bucks for 50 lbs but soon running out of frezzer space. Thats it, Daddy wants a big freezer for Christmas. Boar

Sugar Cone Crumbles! They love em'! He might not have them though.

Choclate covered cherries are #2, but supposidy they aren't supposed to have chocolate so look into that really good before you start with that. I used them one year until I was told otherwise. Personally, I just stopped due to it being a pain trying to find out if it's good or bad for them.

I also use a lot of berry pie filling. A local store should have big cans ouf it. Don't know how far I can go on this, so I'll just say the stores name is a three letter abbreviation.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
