      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 .

Goose Calling DVD

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a good Goose calling DVD or CD they would be willing to borrow out for a couple of days. A few guys on here talked me into trying out the short reed call over my flute. I've had some practice but it still sounds like a sick goose. I'd be willing to pay for shipping both ways. I did see the DVD Honker Talk for $20 but I figured a couple dollars by lending someone elses would off set the price of the call I bought. Thanks.

You are better of buying the DVD, chances are you will have to watch it a few times to get it down good.

I'm very sure in a day or 2 I'll have it down. If not then I'll go buy one. But my word is good and I'll have it back to you in 7 days or earlier. 2 days to get it, 2 to practice, 2 to send it back plus I'll double the postage. Your cash wil be inside the box.

Thanks Rost,

If anyone else has that Honker Talk or another DVD/CD you would recommend I'd like to borrow it.

Honker Talk is a great DVD. Just buy one, you can't watch it too many times trust me (no matter what your girlfriend or mother says.)

If you're new to calling with a short reed goose call it takes time and practice. You'll not get it down in an afternoon, week, month or even a year. It's takes time and plenty of it. The DVD by Shawn Stahl is a great place to start, I still watch mine and I've been running a short reed for years.

Abrams,

Do you think you would be so kind to let me borrow it for a couple days? Rost is letting me borrow a DVD (not honker talk). If you so choose to wait and see for him to post that I returned his DVD in as good condition as I received it and in the amount of time I said, Plus the cash in the envelope to pay for what he was charged for shipping, that is OK with me. I understand this day in age. But it would be appriciated from one Goose hunter to another.

Jeff Foiles, the master goose caller, has a great DVD out with information on how to call geese. It's a DVD about goose calling that is very comprehensive, covers all the calls, and shows you real hunting situations. He breaks it down so you get it but also goes into advanced stuff. Very cool and a quality video like Foiles always does! If you want to order it send me an e-mail and I'll hook you up.

does the DVD include instruction on how to float a 4th shell, or shoot a bird 3 times at 10 yards (rendering the bird inedible)?

While his instructional calling tapes are probably quite good, as a hunter who appreciates the ethics and the tradition of the sport I myself would not support Jeff Foiles.

      Here is the latest....it is changing quite a bit and the water is cooling off.  Check it out while you make your plan for Labor Day

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?

      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.

      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.

      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day.
