      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 .

Late season's upon us...

Recommended Posts

It's here. Ice fishing is rapidly approaching and it's not yet Dec but the conditions are right. Got some tracking snow up north... should have some in the metro by wednesday and the mercury has taken a tumble. Time to get the wool bibs out! After the ice show Fri, I'll be heading to either Crosslake or Marcell in pursuit of some fresh tenderloins.

Who's still got tags left and where is the destination of choice for the late-season?

I'm still holding on to my buck tag and 2 bonus tags. I was a bit too optimistic on my management hunt and now I've got $52 in my wallet that I can't spend. I'm hoping to get another one at least, but my opportunities are small.

We'll see what happens.

The rut is in full swing where I live. Not sure if its the second phase or what, but its going strong!

I saw 8 deer this morning in an hour on stand, of which a couple were bucks chasing does. But I had to git to work, otherwise I would still be out there!

Last night I saw a dandy 9 pt chasing a doe after dark in my neighbors yard.

Game on NOW!

Must be a late doe or last years doe fawn in heat in your area... lucky dog you! Climbin down to head to work with the deer chasing in the woods would've been painful. I think I would have gotten the Flu real quick... Enjoy it while you can... it'll be over soon enough. The small woodlot I've been hunting has been DEAD. I haven't seen an antler in over 2 weeks. It'll be nice to get on some deer in the snow up north this weekend.

Driving outside of town yesterday I came across 2 good sized unpicked corn fields with some decent woods. I will be knocking on their doors sometime today and hopefully get out tonight before that storm hits. I have 0 degrees this morning at my house. Brrrrrr. I seen 6-10 inches of snow for my area with 12-14 inches for the St. Cloud area. After this storm they should take to the corn somewhat soon. I still have my all season buck tag left.

Yeah tonight and tomorrow morning should be good with the storm rolling in. I sat for a quick 45 minutes before work this morning but didn't see anything. Only a gray squirrel that took flight out of a wood duck house and fled into the darkness...

I hope you gain permission... that corn should be gold! I'll be heading up early tomorrow morning to the Crosslake area to scout and hopefully get on some deer. Sounds like 6-10" in the cities under optimal conditions and more north and west. I love being out in the woods in the snow. Best of luck Bill & to everyone else still on the chase!

Just got back from asking permission and no luck. All had other hunters on it. Seems like there is no other standing corn from Milaca to Elk River, or even picked corn for that matter. Everything seems to be plowed under. I got a month to find one! grin.gif

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
