      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 .

Vanes and Nocks

Recommended Posts

I currently have regular feathers and nocks on all of my arrows. I want to go to vanes and lumenok's but am not sure of what kind I should get. Does anybody have any suggestion's or certain ones to steer clear of?

I was thinking of getting quickspin vanes on my arrow's.

Should I put lumenok's on all of my arrows or only the one's I am going to use hunting?

Thanks

Josh

Many options for vanes on your arrow shafts. I have used and still am the quickspins and have been happy with them.

As far as the Luminocks goes, I have three that are on my hunting arrows and like them. if you shoot late at night they are alot easier to find in the dark after they clear the deer and hit the ground. One can also watch the arrow go throught the air and deer.

Not cheap but cool and may help you in finding a few arrows you may have lost.

If you are in the metro area, you could come to the Archery day at Cabin fever in Victoria and they will have staff on hand that could go through your options for vanes and install them right away.

Don't forget about bohning blazers. Very good vane and I think they are cheaper than quick spins. If you shoot lumenoks I would buy a few to practice with, I think they are a bit heavier than your normal nock and that might make a minor difference. I don't shoot lumenok but they do look cool but if I lose an arrow shooting a deer it was well worth the loss.

If you are going to shoot lumenocks, remember that they are considerably heavier than a normal nock. You will have to practice with the lumenocks to make sure your sights are on.

There may not be much if any difference at short ranges but the farther out you are the more difference there will be.

I did notice a small difference at 25 yards. I normally wont take a shot over 30 as I hunt in a pretty darn thick part of the woods.

For vanes I like the Blazers. In fact I got a great deal on arrows with regular vanes and I took them off and replaced them with Blazers. Very durable and not real expensive.

I haven't tried luminocs and just shoot whatever nocks are on the arrows.

I shoot both the quick spin and blazer. Switching from real feathers, you may have clearance problems with any vane. Don't know what type of rest you use, but I had to switch to a drop away to get good clearance.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
