      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 .

Late Season Rochester Geese

Recommended Posts

So I've always wanted to hunt Late season geese in Rochester, but is my only option to do it with a guide and plunk down $200 for 2 birds? Is there any good public land or (not looking for specifics) private people willing to let others onto their land?

What does everybody locally do that hunts this season?

Thanks for the help.

Really nothing along the lines of public land. There are a few public pass shooting blinds along the refuge. But you will have to be a (real) early bird to get one, and it's likely not going to be anything that could be deemed a quality hunt.

Private land is getting harder and harder to come by. But it's not out of the question. You would need to do some major scouting and door knocking.

A guided hunt will run you around $100, in most cases. At least a couple of the guide services also offer unguided hunts. It might be roughly half the price of a fully guided hunt, and you get to use one of their fields. If you can get a few buddies together, this is a good route to go.

Winona i am glad to hear you have had luck banging on doors. that is usually the exception to the rule. Unless you want to settle for several miles out from the refuge and then you will be lucky to see action. Late season can be tough. If you are really anti guide you can go without and you might have success. If you are really only after your 2 birds you can find what way they are flying each day and lay in a ditch some where and probably snipe your 2. I am from roch and have some connections but if i weren't i would probably go with a guide or at least a semi guided. Where they supply the pits and you do all the work. you will spend as much in gas trying to gain permission for some good feilds as you would just getting a guide. I would love to tell you more but the rules on here permit me to do so. Shoot me an e-mail ikeslayer@hotmail.com if you have more questions.

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      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.

      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
