      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 .

3 blade or 4 blade

Recommended Posts

I am going to try some Muzzy's this year.

I want to go with 100 grain.

3 blade ones are 1 3/16" cutting diameter.

4 blade ones are 1" cutting diameter.

Lets hear your thoughts. What one, and why?

I've only got a few years under my archery belt, so I would go for the three blade set-up. I would want to know which broadhead (three or four) flew the best, and with one less blade I would vote on the three.I used one muzzy (3 blade 100 grain) last year, and it did the job. I had used thunderheads before that with excellent results as well.

Hey BLB,

I would go for the bigger cutting diameter and the 3 blades.

I guess I figure with 4 blades you are just cutting more in a smaller area. Just my $.02 worth.

Arrow flight is much more important than broadhead choice. Try shooting some of your buddies heads. Three blades should fly the best. If flight problems are experienced, you may want to try a more radical fletch. I shoot Quick Spin with my broadheads (Thunderheads 125) with great results. Hope this helps.

I've also not heard anything good about the Muzzy-4. I'm sure there are people out there that have had great luck with them, but firsthand, I've talked to 3 different people who tried them and didn't like them.

I've used the Magnus Stinger 4-blade and the G5 Striker. Both are cut on contact heads. I've killed deer witht he stingers and so has a friend of mine. I tried the G5's last year and loved them. I haven't shot a deer with one yet, but they fly amazing and they are a well built head. Very sharp out of the box and easy to maintain.

The reason I asked is because I would have thought that the 4 blade with the smaller diameter might have less resistance while in flight(smaller diameter of blades to catch air), and hence maybe be more accurate.

Sounds pretty clear so far that the 3 blade would be the head of choice. Thanks, and any other opinions welcome.

Hey BLB, if you haven't tried the slick tricks 4 blades you are missing out. there is no difference between my field tips and broadheads and they have a 1 1/8 inch cut. i have seen lots of pics of blood trails from these heads and it is almost sick. i hope to post some of those pics myself in a few weeks.

HEY BIGLAKE Here is my .02 I have a buddy that used to shoot muzzy's and started having issues with them and believe me this guy has shot more broadheads than anybody I have ever known as far as brands and styles go. Two years ago he started shooting the 4 blade Wasp Boss 100gr and he showed me they fly great minimal tuning required and very good broadhead he shot a monster 9pt in wisconsin last year and nicked a branch and buried the head in the front part of the spine and dropped him in his tracks he later pulled the broadhead out with a vise-grip and the blades were all straight and a few nicks not one broken blade keep in mind the shot was 22yds and he shoots a 06 Tribute and he likes a very heavy arrow his arrows are 12.1 grain per inch and another good head is the G-5 Montecs they are awesome last year I got some from my cousin and practiced with them and I shot two of them at a time and they flue like 3inches left and about 2 inches low and when I shot the other one I split my other arrow at 30yds talk about accuracy and one more thing is my other cousin shot a nice eight pointer opening weekend last year and put a good hit on it they had blood for over 200 yds and it was heavy and then he just quit bleeding and they never found him he said that was the 3rd deer he lost and the other night he called me and asked me something I thought I would never hear out of his mouth and that was this Chris what kind of mechanicals should I buy I'm sick of the (Contact Us Please) muzzy's and losing deer and you seem to have good luck with mechanicals so which ones do you shoot and I answered the Rocket Wolverines 75gr or you can get them in 100gr they are called steelheads hope I can help you with your decision if you want you can PM me and I will give you more details off of here dont want to start any arguments Later Chris

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      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.    ; )
