      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 .

My story of the 15 pointer I got on Friday night

I have read stories on here about other peoples bucks now i finally get to right one. I was coming home from college on friday after my class that got done at 3. I had time to think of where i was going to sit with the two hour drive. Something or someone told me i should sit in the stand thats along a ditch and treeline. I got home put on my new mossy oak brush camo gulie suit and got on the stand at 5:30. I saw does right away in the distance feeding and then i saw a fork buck working his way towards me. He came and drank out of the old cattle watering hole in front of me and then went down into the ditch another fork buck came down a deer trail and waded around in the ditch and drank some water then came out of the ditch and slowly wondered away. The other fork buck came back and came out of the ditch and walked to the edge of the field. Something had his attention and got him jumpy. He was looking towards the road so i thought it was a vehicle but i didnt hear one coming. I then heard bucks play fighting or sparring. I thought it was weird. I couldnt see that way so i thought i was hearing things buck i swear thats what it was because i kept hearing it. Then all of a sudden the fork buck took off running. Something got to him. I then sat there for like half-hour with notin unitl i heard something behind me. My heart starting pumping and then i see a fork buck come out of the tress behind me on a trail. After he came i heard something coming behind him. Then a doe and a fawn popped out. They walked around in the bottom of the ditch and drank some water. I was going to leave the stand early to go to a friends party but the three deer just hung out there for awhile. They finally started to wonder down the ditch and then i was getting ready to go. I took a look around me and i sh$t my pants. I looked to my left and there was a nice 8 pointer coming down the ditch. I started to feel the rush. I pulled back as he came behind my tree and relized he wasnt quite big enough to shoot this early in the season. I was pulled back still and i heard more deer coming. The next buck was a another nice 8 pointer. I didnt have time really to think and then another buck came. It was a smaller 8 pointer. I was still pulled back and then i saw him. The last two bucks were coming. I saw the buck i wanted and i put the pins on him. He was about 17 yards away and i let it fly. The arrow hit him through the front shoulders and went right through. This buck and the last one were both shooters for me and i didnt have long to think because they were walking towards the trees and i picked this guy and stuck with him. I felt a relief after i shot. It felt good. One thing i have learned from life mostly hunting if it feels good it usually is good. The buck ran out of the ditch and across the open crp field towards our corn field. I hope u guys like the story. I will write about the tracking of him when i have more time probly later today. Its a long story too. With the help of my dad and a good friend i did find him. I will try to get a picture on here of him. Hes tall but not wide. Dont get your hopes up for a monster but hes a trophy to me. Very unique rack. im skipping chemistry right now o right this lol hunting is more important anyways right. i will right more later cya

Yeah, skip more classes and write up the story!! Just kidding, there is plenty of time to write it up later. Us old farts will just have to wait.

Good job and I bet your arm muscles were singing by the time you got to shoot....sounds like you had the bow pulled back awhile. Another thing that struck me is the fantastic hunt you had. My biggest fear is to shoot a monster buck without a good hunt to it.

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
