      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 enters target at an angle

Recommended Posts

I know, I know, I should have started shooting my bow along time ago, but I just started shooting again on Sunday night. Just never seemed to find the time in between family obligations. Anyway, I have noticed that my arrows are entering the target at an angle instead of going straight in. Accuracy is good however. Is this a form issue? Any Thoughts?

Your bow could be out of tune. It could be a hard spot in the target... quite a number of things.

You can still get good "accuracy" if it is out of tune. However in the woods you probably want the arrow flying as straight as possible so you have less possiblity of deflections.

Take a few minutes to tune your bow.

Yep, sounds like your bow is slightly out of tune, possibly that your nock/string and your sight are out of line slightly. Where is the fletching located compared to your field point? A paper test at your archery shop will also show it.

When your bow is that out of tune, a broadhead (which is now engaged in steering the arrow) can take your flight way off course.

Mr... take an old picture frame 8-11" and put a normal piece of paper in it... NOT NEWS PAPER!!! and shoot through it(make sure you will still hit your target. Frame should be about 5 feet in front of target and about 10 feet from you. If your punching bullet holes, its your target, many targets will kick an arrow... Paper tune is the way to go.

You can cut the bottom out of a box to make a frame as well.

Could be hand torque as well. I would paper tune first though just to make sure it is not a tuning issue.

Do they all fly that way or is it just a few out of let's say a dozen or so?

Exactly, what type of rest do you have? If it is not centered it will tail either left or right depending on which way it is set to far from riser or to close, hand torque will have the same effect. The sight has absolutely nothing to do with it.

did the paper test, arrow went straight through and hit target. I am thinking it is just my block target. Didn't notice it happening last year though. But it is getting kind of old, had many arrows hit it. It definitely is not stopping the arrows as quickly as it used to. I think it is just the target though. thanks for the tips.

I have a Arrow brake bag target and some arrows will hit at an angle due to so many shots in the bag. Normal for my target. I have also checked with paper tuning and my arrows hit fine.

Must be the target.

is it left and right angle or up and down? or all of them? left and right only is your rest. i thought my bow was out of tune this spring but it was really my quick spin vanes on my whiskerbisket rest. i glued them on and i didnt get them exactly perfect. another good way to see how your arrow is flying is with a luminok. at dusk. hope everything works out for you.

      Hi, from the Northwest Angle! Water temps are staying consistently in the low 70’s.

      Stateside, walleye fishing has been good from Lunatic to Garden Islands. The edges of islands and reefs in 22-29’ will provide walleye, perch and occasional large pike. Most productive methods have been minnows on gold spinners and deep diving crank baits in UV tiger, clown and blue/chrome.

      Canadian walleyes can be had jigging minnows with gold, pink, and chartreuse on edges of reefs.  Monkey Rocks is holding many schools of fish currently, as well as, reefs south of Deepwater Bay. Bottom bouncing outside these reefs will produce fish as well. Muskie fishing has slowed a little, however nice fish in upper 40’s can be caught in “windows” of time, usually coinciding with Majors and Minors.

      We hope to see you for some fantastic fall fishing & hunting!

      Tx all.  Been trying topwater frog lures.  Been getting some action but water is too rapid to have much luck.

      Lets see you will need- 
      a) license and lion permit/tag 
      b)guide 
      c) dogs with tracking collars 
      d) horses 
      e) some sort of thing that goes "BOOM" 
      and a ton of forethought for asking such a dumb question

      8/21/17     Got out on Mille Lacs on Saturday morning. Started out on rocks in 10-12 feet of water, then as the sum came up and the wind layed down moved to gravel in 28-30 feet and then the deep transition from a rock/gravel reef to the soft lake bottom in 32 feet of water. Caught smallies and walleyes on the rocks, and walleyes on the gravel and the deep transition line. Power bobbing with leeches about one foot above bottom on the rocks and two to four feet above bottom in the deeper spots. The five smallies went from 16 to 18.5 inches, and the walleyes went from 16 to 25.5 inches. They weren't jumping in the boat--we had to try different spots, move around slowly on spots with the MinnKota, and then anchor when we did catch or see fish on the Humminbird. Had to work for them, but wound up averaging three fish per hour with the faster action early and then slowing when the sun got high and the wind layed down--typical August fishing. Eyes and smallies are fat and look healthy--both fought very actively. Surface water temp. started at 68.7 degrees at sunrise and was to 72.4 when we headed in. Still a little cooler than average, but that is how this summer has been. Might be my last time on Mille Lacs--busy with football now and waterfowl hunting starts in a month. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      these should be available at Circuit City, BestBuy, or pretty much any other electronics store. Go check them out, a play around with them, just to see which one you find easier to use.

      Best is the one that's suited to the purpose used for. 
      My usual preference is a middleweight Standard because it's versatile and can serve many purposes with only quickly made alterations - add saddlebags, rack etc. 
      No need for more than two cylinders. 

      My view of what's best? 
      2 wheels, a frame and a 2 cylinder 4 stroke motor.

      Are you out to add color or protect the wood or both? A natural oil sealer is something to consider -- it lets the beauty of the natural cedar show though and still protects the wood. You can also get the same type of "penetrating oil sealer" in colors. Hard finishes (varnish) may look tacky and will require re-sanding and finishing over time --while the oil sealers can be touched up annually with a new light coat without sanding -- a much more natural look. Go to a "real" paint store and talk to them about your project -- skip the Home Depots and Lowe's "advice"

      you want a hard, fine-grained wood for carving lures. high quality wood so your hardware won't split the wood or so it won't soak up a lot of water then split. water WILL gain access to the wood no matter how good the paint. 
      and the acrylic is fine.

      I know this: you need to be on the water around 4:00am and the window of opportunity is small. When 6:00am rolls around, you should be done fishing for sturgeon.

      Is the canadian seal hunt still going on? if it is still on, does anyone know when it is supposed to commence this year? If any one have good idea please reply me with a quality comments.
