      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 out of curiosity?

i was just curious. by reading some of the posts the past few weeks, how many of you guys, or gals, hunt on and own private property? seems like a lot of hunters hunt public land. I myself have access to about 400 acres of meadow/swamp/woods to hunt. My dad owns quite a bit of river bottom, which hopefully i'll have some day. I'd have to split it up with my 3 younger brothers though mad.gifgrin.gif

I have mixed feelings about private, than public! I like my private land I hunt, but it has not produced a large buck in last 5 years!

I would like a mounter and I know they are out there! They just have to move during the day light hunting hours this time of year!

I fear deer opener morning on public land. Fear it! So I will be hunting a subpar chunk of private land not owned by me opening weekend and 2nd weekend. During the week and 3rd weekend I'll be on public land.

I hunt both private and private bordering state land. The state land has the biggest bucks, but I also fear opener of firearm. There are tons of shots that go off and if you don't get your deer right away opening morning, it is tough to see another. It turns into a ghost woods after opening morning.

I'll be on private land when the firearm opens up.

I hunt all private for archery and gun. It works out well for gun and archery as we are the only group to hunt these 2 sections.

Ripley is the only piece of public land I've been on this year. I occasionally hunt a small piece of landlocked state land with a buddy during firearm's season as it borders his property. I'm fortunate enough to own some land & have family & friends that own other properties. They all have plenty of deer, but get hunted pretty hard & very, very few nice bucks are taken or even seen.

I only bow hunt... I dont do the riffle thing... I will hunt WI during the MN gun season.. and will hunt MN for the WI gun season.

As far as where I hunt... I would say about 70/30 private to public...

As being new to the area ( almost 3 years now) finding private land is almost impossible unless you "know someone". Unfortunately, I don't know anyone, at least anyone who has land. Knocking on doors hasn't yielded anything. I haven't tried leasing yet, but I think that may be the way to go. I'm from VT where you could find places to hunt by knocking on doors and simply asking.

100% public land and fearing for my life during rifle season. I may not hunt rifle season for this reason, opting instead for muzzleloader, less people, better chances for snow as I like to track.

JUst this year I got in on a Potlatch lease with another guy. Before that I hunted 90% public. I do not fear the public land that I hunted, but the land that I chose was further up north and not that close ot the crowds. Those who did hunt there had been going there for years and knew every new person who came in....unless someone got a new car that year.

In other parts of the state (west and south) where public land isn't as plentiful for deer hunting, I might be little more concerned because of the hunter density.

Even with having access to private land this year I've only hunted there one weekend so far.

the potlatch land you have leased, is it pine, or hybrid poplar tree farm. we have many acres of it somewhat leased. we actually have lifetime rights to 6 of the hybrid poplar tree farms. those were the terms under which we sold our land to them. and we get first buy-back as an option, if they decide to sell.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
