      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 .

Your string has stretched and the peep will need to be repositioned. If this is a constant problem you may need new strings. If you can do that yourself than its no big deal.

If you take it to a shop they can offer more options. If you need new strings than you need them so that might help, but if your string is good and you just need to fine tune your peep position there are ways of straightening it out by crossing fibers from one side of the peep to the other to counteract twist. It means choosing individual strands out of a 16 strand string and should be done by a pro if you're not familiar.

I had same problem. Figure it was string stretch but was wrong. I just had to repostion my d-loop. It twist on your string if you shoot alot and just twisting it back to wear it started should do the trick. Good luck.

I know lots of people are going away from the rubber hose that attaches to the peep, but I have used one ever since they first came out and have NEVER had a problem with my peep not opening up. Needs to be changed every year or so but it always works. IMO, this is much easier that dickin' around with trying to seperate strings, etc.

Did I mention that it ALWAYS works? grin.gif

Donbo, I agree with you, I think that the odds of a hose breaking while drawing back on that buck are a lot lower than having the peep twist when it isn't attached. If you inspect the hose often, it is pretty reliable. If it starts cracking, I just cut that piece off and roll some more over it.

I like my No-Peep.

Better at dawn and dusk and no hose to break or peep to twist at the wrong moument.

Do you shoot a kisser? I shot that with my old bow, but went back to a peep with my knew one. I'm really tempted to go back to the kisser, it just seemed so simple & comfortable.

Readjust your string loop so that it rotates your peep in the right spot. If you don't use a loop and attach right at the string with your release then you need to either get a new string or readjust the peep in the string. There are a few no twist strings out there that are a good option if you need to replace your string.

If you are unsure how to fix it make sure you go to your pro shop and have them do it for you.

This is why I practice shooting looking beside my peep, for just this reason. You will not panic as much when you pull back on a deer and the peep is not right cause you practiced.

I agree with DonBo, never had a problem I have the rubber hose attached, and change it every year, or actually the pro shop does it for like $5-7 depends on who does it. it is like the cheapest maintenance you can do.

I also use the rubber hose and have never had a problem with it. Like others have said change it yearly so there are no worries.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      Hey all, I am looking to catch a decent perch in the 7" or bigger range and soon because in my class at school we get to taxidermy a fish and I would like to do a yellow perch, I have fished little Pulaski for 2 days and Buffalo for one and caught nothing on Buffalo lake and some bluegills and bass on little pulaski. Anyone got advice on spots in little Pulaski or Buffalo lake or just another lake near by Buffalo as well for perch? Thanks - jim
