      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 .

saturday's calling report

Recommended Posts

Okay, got out for the first time this year (2008) on saturday. Yes I waited until after lunchtime when the temperature hit a balmy 3 degree's. We made 5 stands total and had a lot of crows respond as well as a few red tail hawks. On our second set of the day, we were calling from a tangle of trees in a corner where 4 different fields meet. after about 5 minutes of distressed rabbit, I tried a young challenge howl. within 5 minutes, I saw a coyote coming towards me from about 1/2 mile away.

I lost that coyote as it came to a point in the woods about 400 yards away. I continue with the rabbit distress when I see a second coyote coming from the same area as the first one. I assumed the first coyote had circeld behind the hill in front of us and I was watching down wind for it to show. Well, I start watching the second coyote and it trots to the point of woods on the field edge and plops down on its' keister. I notice something next to him. it is the first coyote. My hunting partner said he saw the first one appear on that point when I started looking down wind.

So, after 10 minutes of trying to get them to close the last 400 yards of open field (I know, pipe dream but I tried to coax them across that open field) they stand up and walk back into the woods. Man the blood was pumping so much I forgot it was cold, with a 15 mph cross wind and the temp was about 5 degrees. well we made 3 more stands and saw a lot of coyote tracks but had nothing else report to the call.

The fur buyer at Weibke's in Eitzen said that he is starting to see evidence of the coyotes pairing up and mating (fur being bit on the necks, etc.) He wasn't sure how much longer he would be buying coyote pelts. SO, they are starting to pair up for a little coyote whoopee, which means that howling would be a better choice for this time. Distress will still work, but the males don't want any other coyotes moving in on his territory or his mate.

Hopefully will get out next weekend for a little hunt locally, if I do, I will report it.

Have a good week everyone.

What are you guys getting for your dogs? Not skinned, just as they are when you pick them out of the field?

      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.
