      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 .

I do some bow hunting on a patch with some mighty oaks, but I was wondering if I could put lawn thatch and alot of acorns from yards that I pick up in the same area?

Would this be considered baiting?

Thanks in advance

Mark

I too would think that would be baiting...anytime you move a food source from one spot to place in an area you will be hunting I would think would be baiting.. now ifyou hunted from the tree that is dropping the acorns, that would not be considered baiting as its natural. Just my opinion!

Another baiting Q --

I tossed a pile of apples by my camera which is a LONG ways from my stand. I can't even see deer from that spot much less shoot. Just trying to get pics of what is out there -- Is this legal?

I believe that its ok as long as the DNR cannot believe that you are using this bait to attrach the deer to the area that you are hunting. I guess I might just pick up the bait for the days you hunt or hunt elsewhere to reduce any doubt.

its hard to say. i think you are supposed to have all bait removed from your hunting area 10 days prior to hunting it. I would e mail the dnr and ask. thats what i do everytime i have a question i can't find the answer myself.

On the apple situation, I believe it would be baiting if the deer are traveling past your stand to get to the apples. I would pick up the apples within the next week or so to be on the safe side.

all good points. Believe me I am just looking to see what is out there, but I might be preaching to the choir on that one.

I can tell you that a conversation with a DNR officer did not help clear up the baiting question. There is a neighbor

that feeds deer all year round which holds a huge population and according to the DNR officer I spoke to if the deer are traveling past you to get to the bait it is considered baiting and would be illegal. Now, it comes down to the determination of the officer as to the specifics. Much like many of the rules in the book there is not a definate answer. I would say not to mess with the apples durring the season.

A new law was placed in effect now - if you do not participate in the baiting of deer on adjacent land you are okay to hunt

id just not feed them and therefore remove all doubt from the equation. Youll be safe that way. Good luck hunting!

One thing to note that was put on a previous post by Icornice was that you need to be the landowner to not be breaking the law. If I were hunting on my friends property it would be considered baiting, the exception is only for the landowner.

I know it can be a tricky area and sometimes one officer might see it one way or another.

No doubt that it is better to just not do it.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff

      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.
