      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 .

Just give me some ideas for a set to put on my bino straps. I have had some big ones on there and the are not real good for what I need. Looking for a better field of view at closer ranges and lighter to leave on while I shoot my bow. I am looking mostly for bow hunting and in real thick brush, maybe max of 100-150 yards, I will keep the big boys in the backpack or in the truck.

I bought a pair of this years Bushnell Legends. For the money, I believe they're the best you can buy. I did a ton of research on binocs in the $250 to $400 price range and I'm super happy with this purchase. Tons of people were happy with last years model and this years model has better glass and a nicer eye relief system. I highly recommend them.

I purchased a set of 10x42 Zhumell glasses a year or so ago. Smeller set and will fit into a little bit bigger coat pocket or a harness. I have been overjoyed with these glasses an would without a doubt buy them again. Lifetime warranty also.

If my memory serves me well, I believe I paid $275.00 for them.

Harvey, are the Zhumell's that you have the 10x42 Signature Waterproof binoc's? I found some online but want to make sure they are as good as the reviews I've seen. The main thing I am wondering about is how they do in low light. Thanks.

8 power work better IMHO for most whitetail hunting in MN. Easier to hold steady and wider field of view. I have a pair of Nikon Monarch 8x42 set up with bino buddies and love them.

I second the Bushnell Legends. For $250-$300 range.

I do recommend the 8x32. They are comfortable, light/small, with BAK 4 prisms and have an exit pupil of 4 (about the max light gathering humans can notice).

Has anyone ever seen the Zhumells in a store? I checked their website but there are no stores listed.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?

      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
