      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 .

well the bear we want has stoped comimg to the bait, he was spooked off by a cough a week ago. The bait is getting hit again but it is a sow and 3 cubs. We already know my son is not going to shot her but there are some who have said the cubs are 2 years old and she will be kicking them away very soon anyway. He are some picks,let me know what you "bear hunters" think

Cubs can be tough to judge, our policy is sows are not shot. Granted those could be yearlings or they could be healthy cubs either way those are the future of bear hunting and momma is helping to make sure they stay safe until old enough to look after themselves.

Plus can you stomach feild dressing a sow when the cubs keep trying to come to her for safety?...it will tear your heart out no matter how tough you think you are.

Thats tought news GFL, sorry to hear that. A lessoned learned, I know I've learned mine this year. I cant remember are you on private land? if so those cubs might be good to go next year, if there two year old cubs I think momma will run them of soon, not sure though. Why not just keep fatting them up for next year, help them get throuhgt the winter an go at it again. lot of fun watching bears in the woods, good observation time for your son an good memories to.

We are on public land. We have some time left to hunt and who knows what can happen. I do know that this coming weekend there will be alot more activity in the woods. My son is hunting out of a double-bull and starting friday that and the camera will have to be pulled for the weekends. I hate to change anything in the area but them bull blinds and cameras are not cheap.

Plus knowingly shooting a sow is taking away future bear in your area. (never even thought about the gutting out Mom bit with the cubs trying to hang around... no thanks) Every breeding age sow left walking means more bears tomorrow. I also recently learned that wolves will take down cubs when they no longer have Mom to guard there backs... so you may be ringing the death knell for the cubs if Mom is taken... and she must be in her prime breeding age to pull off triplets...

I realize dry sows are shot now and then and that's the way the dice rolls, but I'd never shoot a sow if I could I.D. her as such... cubs or not.

Good Luck!

Ken

I would say that those are two year olds, but they are most likely also going to winter with her if they are with her yet now. I personally wouldn't put them in harms way by harvesting her. Keep after it. Good things come to those who are patient!!! If she just showed up recently, there's a chance a different boar might suddenly appear. It's good to see that you are instilling good ethics into your son!!! smile.gif

I've had that same thing happen to me during deer hunting, shoot a doe with the bow and then have to run the fawn(s) off to do the gutting.... Then worse yet that same orphan fawn hangs around that area for weeks. And the same as bears, I think the adult doe can help those fawns survive longer into the fall and winter.

The breeding season has passed for this year and I would have to say those cubs look way too short and round to be anything but healthy cubs from this years litter. They have had a very good summer for natural foods and look to be in great shape, but I'm afraid that without the sow, they won't live to become 2-year olds. Between the wolves, older boars, and mother nature, orphaned cubs stand very little chance without becoming nuisance bears. Just my .02!

      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.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
