      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 .

Been bowhunting for 27 years now and had a first this past Saturday night. I was returning to my truck in the dark when I spooked a large buck on the edge of a cornfield. He ran into the woods and stopped and I could hear him grunting I'm guessing about 30-40 yds.away. I was downwind so he was'nt quite sure what I was, thought I'd have a little fun so I gave him a series of 3 aggressive grunts. WOW!!! all hell breaks loose and he starts snort/wheezing like nothing I've ever heard before and charges straight at me gets 10yds in front of me before he stops,turns around and trots off. I'll tell ya the hairs on the back of my neck are standing straight,I almost pee my pants, and my legs don't stop shaking for 15 minutes! What a rush.It doesn't get any better than this.

Not nearly as exciting but...Sunday morning I had an owl hit my head while I was on stand. No noise, just a serious "thump" on my head in the dark while my eyes were closed.

No, I wasn't asleep and dreaming either. laugh.gif I had just moved my head a bit to check my watch. 6:15. 10 or 15 seconds later, thump!

cool.gif These are the coolest of experiences and a huge part of why we're out there! cool.gif

Same thing happened to me Saturday morning. I was walking to my stand about an hour before sunrise thru the alfalfa field and when I get close to where I have to enter the woods I could make out a deer. I stopped and kneeled down and figured if I gave a couple of grunts the deer would take off. Nope, he covered a 100 yrds in about 5 secs and just when I thought I might have to shoot him to get him to stop he pulled up at about 15 yds. Head lowered and pawed the ground twice. He was only a little 4 or 5 pointer but he was ready to brawl!! Found 5 fresh scrapes within 50 yds of my stand at daybreak, gonna have to cut out of work early a couple nights this week! laugh.gif

I had a similar experience sunday night as I have stated in an earlier post. I was leaving the stand a little earlier than usual because I hadn't seen a deer all night. I get into the field and see a deer with his nose down running all over. I slowly work my way back into the woods. I grunt a few times. All of the sudden from my right, I hear grunting. Here comes another buck out into the field. I grunt a few more times. He comes in to about 30 yards and stops. At this time I'm thinking that this might not be the smartest move. He was a BIG deer and it was getting really dark. Finally, I saw him take off, but for a minute there, I thought I was going to have to do battle. blush.gif

I guess I could have gone Davy Crockett on him. Any regs on stabbing a deer to death?! blush.gif Just thought the arrow might have been the safest alternative (for me anyways), I've already been to the ER one too many times this year.

Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.

      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.

      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!

      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...
