      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 still have an all season tag left. I drove past my St. Francis spot and the alfalfa(sp)field was covered with tracks! Don't know if there coming at night or not. I will hunt there tonight and find out! Hopefully I can connect. Anyone else been out or planning on hunting the final 2 weeks?

My opportunities are few and far between, but I'm hunting every chance I get. I hope to get out a few more times still.

I'm still at it......when the weather and work allow. I will probably sit tomorrow morning and a couple days this week. Lots of movement in my area, I just can't seem to nail down the patterns when I can only get out 1 or 2 days every other week.

I am but haven't been out lately. Found a new spot on the way home from pheasant hunting with 20 deer in a field I will have to check out. I want to shoot one yearling yet for meat.

I went out tonight and saw 7. 4 does strolled by at 50yds at 4:30pm. As I was getting down there were 3 big bodied deer well across the field feeding. You should see this alfalfa field and the tracks going across it. It is like a 6 lane super highway, of course none come on the trail I am sitting on frown.gif. Hopefully before the season ends I can get one. Next time I go I will take some pics of the trails.

Im still trying as well. Hunted all day yesterday. The trials in the snow were like highways and they were all over the place. I didnt see any movement. It is starting to get frustrating but still fun. Im still waiting for my first bow kill. I have only actually seen one while bow hunting and I shot it the following weekend in rifle season. I have hunted almost every weekend since Sept 15.

I have the last 7 days of the year off and plan to be out a quite a bit. I have a buck tag avaiable if my dad is with me otherwise a fanw would top the freezer off.

Tonight I talked to my dad after bowhunting and he found a matched set of sheds from an 11 pointer with 11.5 inch G2s, he saw a half rack, and I talked to a guy who pulled an antler off that he got at the end of muzzleloader. The snow, ice and cold must be stressing them out. Choose your animal carefully I guess.

I love to ice fish and have been out doing that some. But I know I have all winter to fish...so I still try and get out in the bow stand when time and weather work out. I plan to go out a couple more times yet this year. I made it out yesterday afternoon and had two yearlings come close by but the underbrush was too thick for a shot. I also saw an owl catch a mouse right in front of me and eat it in the tree next to me...pretty good afternoon to be out. Good luck to everyone still getting out.

Now that I'm done flying all over for work I'm gonna try getting out a few more times before I break out the ice fishing gear. Tomorrow looks to be 30 - heatwave! I'll have to break out my lightweight camo again and head out tomorrow pm...

I guess I'll have to watch for sheds also.

Has anyone with trail cams noticed if this cold is forcing them wander around more in daylight or don't they mind single digit nights?

Well I sat in my stand on Saturday the 15th and shot a doe. What I thought was a perfect shot turned out to be a 1/2 mile and a second day search party tracking mission. I shot behind her left shoulder and I think it stopped in her right shoulder or brisket. The arrow did not come out and the blood trail was vary good for the better of 100 yards and stopping every once and leaving big blood pools. But she never bedded and I didn't push her. I think it must have clogged up or something but if she would have just laid down within the first hour I would probobly have found her. Unfortunetly it didn't turn out that way. Scouted for another 2 more hours Sunday evening with no luck.

I will have give my stand another try this week but just still sick that I may have contributed to the survival of some coyotes in my area. mad.gifmad.gif

One thing that I do have to say is that my luminox are one of best investments. It helped me confirm that I know where the arrow went in and it was very obvious when I released my arrow!!!

Still at it as well... although the weight on the ice fishing side of the teeter-totter is getting heavier and heavier. Went up this past weekend and saw plenty of deer but couldn't close the gap. I figured with all the snow they'd be more concentrated and have some good trails established but not the case at all. They're still roaming freely and difficult to pattern. Out early too. Sat night I went out to a feeding area around 3 and they were already there when I got there. Don't ya just love it when it's dead calm and you got deer blowing at ya. Still a few weeks to get a tag on one though... I shot a doe on the 28th 3 years ago so there's hope.

I'm planning to bowhunt the evenings of the 29th with a buddy & the 31st just for tradition. May go another time or two in between. Shot a nice big doe Saturday night, may be my biggest bow doe. Saw a fawn right after the doe went down in view. First time I've ever seen snow spraying from a deer doing a face plant. What a rush!

Find the food, they're still moving. Found two or three other decent spots, although not as much activity as where I shot this one. All the sign I've found is heading for hayfields, but there's no standing corn remaining in that area. I've been seeing deer in standing corn driving to & from work on land I don't have permission to hunt on.

I got myself a doe tonight as well, she came in at 3:10 and I just couldn't pass her up, it's been too many cold days in the stand without action to pass up an easy shot like the one she gave me. Looks like there will be meat in the freezer this winter! My big buck will wait for next year I guess...

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
