      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 .

I have heard of this deer. I know the guy who shot it. It was shot outside of Spring Valley. I have not seen the deer but I know that it was an 18 pointer. Eleven on one side and seven on the other. I will try to get some pictures.

I live in Fillmore County, and I got pictures of the deer emailed to me from a buddy, sorry guys, but I don't know if they guy wants them posted, so I don't feel comfortable putting them up.

But just to burst your bubble, it's nowhere near a record, it is huge, it's a 180+ non typical, but nowhere close to a record.

It's possible that we are talking about 2 different bucks, but I highly doubt it.

Actually, I just found a link to the pictures online, but I don't think this site allows me to post it, it's on Magnum sports website under kill zone 2007, page 5, middle bottom picture

Darn nice buck, but not a record. I did see this deer, but when I herd a possible record I didn't think this was the one you were talking about.

I agree, great buck but not even close to the MN state record (I think the Breen buck). Anyone else think that picture looks altered or is it just me?

Yeah, it does look altered. However, it could have been taken with a bad digital camera. Looks like the deer was cut in there. When fishing last year we caught some crappies and I took a picture with my bad digital camera and everything looked like it was pasted in there. Anywho, reguardless, very nice deer!!!

Guys, I think its just you. smile.gif The pic doesn't look altered at all. Pretty authentic right up to the blood on the sleeve and pants of the hunter. Not to mention the long grass in front of and falling on the deers legs, that would take a master at at photo shop to try and alter and get lined up to look authentic. Just another nice Minnesota buck.

I swear that if the picture doesn't come firt hand from someone on this sight, its called a fake. When I shot my buck this year, the guys I tracked it with did a photo shoot, they have made numerous 130-140 class bucks look much bigger than they really are. I found out that setting up a buck for good pictures to make it look huge is very common. We've come a long way from pics of deer on the old meat pole, but when outdoor publications offer great prizes for awesome pictures, it's not suprising. These guys will shoot the deer, gut it, hang it, then move it to a scenic location for pics. Its kind of an art. We dragged my deer from the woods to the field before field dressing so we could get better pictures. Unfortunately he had a real busted up nose that we couldn't get cleaned which would take me out of any winning pic circles. Still a great buck though.

Not altered at all, just set up right.

Thats a fake. grin.gif

Seriously though it gets tiresome when every picture posted is called a fake, photoshoped or altered.

I agree, its like nobody wants to believe that a big buck got shot. The heck of it is, even if it was cleaned up with photoshop or "cut in". its still a dead dear somewhere. Still, my post was half in jest.

I did not intend to give the impression that the deer was not legit, the picture just looks odd to me. I have no doubt the deer is real. Great buck whatever the case!

Jlm, the reply wasn't so much directed at you as the rest of this forum community. Anyone who has read other threads with big deer are always saying that the pic is a fake or altered in some way. Its actually kind of funny but it can get old.

grin.gifWhat did you think we'd take altered to mean?

You are right, I guess "altered" could be interpreted the wrong way. Actually, it looks like the pic has been lightened up or something. Again, whatever the case, nice deer!

      I recently purchased a humminbird 688ci hd ice locator and it has GPS and the option for lake master chip. I'm going to drive to Cabela's to buy a chip  and was wondering the difference between the Lake Master Minnesota and the Minnesota Plus. Anyone have any experience with these and are they worth the money. Thanks.

      I haven’t checked backwaters since last weekend, but I checked the small lake this morning and it has just under 2 inches of ice.  McNally’s has been hit pretty hard for the last 2 weeks.

      Does anybody have any info on Ice fishing on lake Lasalle? I know its a very deep lake so does it get thick ice? Thanks
    • KidMoe
      Bummed I did t see that sooner! I would have definitely come out! Count me in on the next one!

      Good hearing from you, always enjoyed reading of you & Doc's adventures.
    • leech~~
      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!
    • JTeeth
      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.
