      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 .

arrow flying off to the side

my bow is set up waiting to order my pre cut pre fletched beeman hunter ics 500 spine 25 length 60 pound pull weight.

now my question is my brothers bow he is 14 it is at 50 pounds 27 inch pull length. the bow will shoot well and all of a sudden an arrow will make a fluttering sound and fly off way off the mark to the right. so we tried that arrow and most the times it will fly right and then all of a sudden fffrrrrppp and flies to the right but that happens with all the arrows. any suggestions. too much weight. too little weight or any suggestions.

Sounds to me that the arrows are spined too low.

Try a stiffer arrow and see if that fixes it.

You might also want to paper tune if the arrow spine is correct. A left tear would suggest that the rest is to close to the riser (assuming a right-handed shooter) If you do paper tune, make sure you shoot a few arrows to look for consistancy.

Feathers or Vanes?

Hope this helps.

Like posted above, first thing would be to check that you’re shooting the correct arrow for your setup. You can do this online at most major arrow manufactures web sites, otherwise check with your local pro shop.

Are you positive that it happens with any or all the arrows? Number each arrow with a marker or paint pen so you can keep track of which arrow/s are flying erratic.

Is it possible the arrow is falling off the rest and lying next to it on the shelf? This would definitely cause some erratic arrow flight. This was happening to my son occasionally and it was quite frustrating for him until we found the problem.

If most of the time the arrow is flying ok and then you get a bad one, its something in his shooting form. Watch him shoot, is he anchoring in the same spot? Sting hitting his arm? Getting tired? Not gripping the string the same every time?

Is he shooting fingers or a release?

If you can't figure out whats happening, goto a good archery shop and have them watch him shoot. They can usually figure out the problem.

I number all my arrows. Try this and see if it is the same arrow, first.

Sounds like poor form occasionally. The sound you are hearing is obviously some sort of arrow contact. Usually a side to side error is from poor shooting form or a rest problem. If the rest was the issue than it would happen on every shot.

great info above! is he shooting fingers? if so, i would also guess shooting form. you must realize that any tiny flaw in a release can/will screw up arrow flight.since both of you are just starting out, BE PATIENT!! grin.gif good shooting form takes time to develope. del

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
