      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 .

Deer Season...Part III

Recommended Posts

Well, that is all for me folks!

Saw a few deer on the way to the stand on Saturday AM. It was way too dark, so I just kept a walking. Didn't see anything the rest of the day. It sure was windy and miserable sitting yesterday. Snow blowing down my neck and I just got cold! Today I headed out and sat in the "camper of doom". Made a pot of coffee, spread out a little bit, and took a nice nap basking next to the furnace! grin.gif Well, a guy has to relax every now and then, right? Needless to say, didn't really see much today except kicking one deer up on the way out to get my portable stand out of the woods. All in all, a good season for me-The deer were safe for this year grin.gif. I know there is one more weekend left, but 2 weekends of deer hunting has always been enough for me. Got to get the ice fishing gear ready now! How did everybody else do this weekend?

I didn't even go out this weekend. Got my buck last Thursday, and when I was running errands Friday the town was so full of orange jackets I figured the woods would be as full of hunters as deer, especially with the rut not ramped up yet on opener weekend.

I'll probably hunt a couple days this week to try to fill my antlerless tag. Now that I'm working on my own schedule, I'd much rather avoid all that company in the weekend woods.

Heading back up north on wednesday for four days of hunting in paradise. Looking to harvest a decent buck, but I wouldn't complain about another doe either. Good luck in this last week boys!!!

Justin, there's still part IV, V, VI... grin.gif Too bad you didn't fill a tag but it sounds like you enjoyed the season anyway. We'll have some vennie in January.

Steve, congrats! smile.gif Its always good to get one tagged when you crave that meat. I know a little doe spot.... Well, you know the rest. Good luck, it sounds like several people have places for you to go.

We have my doe and a buck that a friend gave me from archery season. Usually two is enough for our house but we've been getting more creative with preparing it. The buck is almost crumbs already. Looking for #2 myself still.

Hey Wanderer,

I heard you say you hunt near Emily huh? Not too far from my neck of the woods. Didn't happen to stumble in to The Bungelow did ya? Wrecked my pickup one year driving there from hunting the Old Grade! Must have been a sign.

Pickle,

Ha, hope nobody got hurt!

A couple of guys from the party hunt the old grade. I might even find myself there with whats left of the group this weekend.

Our friends live up 136(?) by Eagle Lake. This is the first year I've hunted with them in MN, so I don't know that area too well. I'm sure they know the Bungelow though!

I grew up hunting and fishing the Pine River area so I'm more familiar with west of the Whitefish. Not the thickest deer herd but I do love those woods and lakes. Well, almost any woods and lakes I guess. smirk.gif

Ah, I see Nisswa. I ran too low on oil on 371 one night. The Sherrif picked me up and took me to the bar. Thats where we found the owner of the auto parts store. We all went over to the store to ring up a few quarts, then he took me back to my car. I was maybe 17 at the time.

Nisswa. Good times. grin.gif

How's your season been?

Gull is a neat lake. I fished a State tourney there once, when I did that sort of thing.

I've been doing all my summer fishing in Ely lately. Can't get enough of that area. I'd have to say you are lucky being able to live in the Nisswa area and have a place in Ely too!

Your email address? Mine is tsac4@hotmail.com.

Email sent. Yeah Gull is dandy. The fall bite the last few years is crazy. Just went out with a buddy for the last time this year on Sunday. Keep in touch!

      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
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      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.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.
