      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 .

Deitz,

You can never have too many, you will need to show us a family photo. Are you married? If you are how do you explain to the wife the need for a new bow? When you already have 6.

Sounds like you need a 12 step program. I see you've reached the first step admitting you have a problem. Just eleven more. I'm stuck in the denial stage, theres no problem here.

Deitz, what I want to know is if you are part octapus to shoot that many. And I thought fishing was an addictive sport.

I've got 5 compounds, 3 stick bows and a recurve. Last weekend I was ogling the new Hoyt Katera XL. If they had it in left hand I might have left the store with yet another bow.

I'm just glad firearms don't evolve as quick as bows do. The custom stocked left handed Remington model 700 in 30/06 I got for my 14th birthday is just as good or better than what is on the market today. I'll probably never buy another deer rifle before I die. On the other hand the bow I was shooting when I was 14 is darn near laughable by todays standards. Even a bow that is 5 years old is often times light years off current technology. Sometimes I wonder if it's because archery companies stand to profit by making improvements a year at a time instead of releasing the best possible product all at once. Who knows.

Great point Hub-... They have come a long ways in the last few years with archery.. faster, more forgiving, quieter!... Guns, like you said, maybe even arent as good as they were 20 years ago.. LOL

I dont think its the archery companies holding back... Its just they learn each year, and try to out-do!

part of the reason I got the new to me bow, my 1992 Hoyt ProStar Meridian just wasnt cutting it any more on targets....

Just had a thought, raffle off one of your old bows to <18yr olds on this site every time you buy a new one. Win-win for everybody. Promotes the sport to younger generation, you get a little $ for your used bow and satisfaction that you're helping out a youth that can't afford a better bow. Plus you get to buy a new one whenever you get the itch without any guilty feelings whatsoever!

Heat- thats a great idea... however I am a bit of a mutant... I'm 6'3"... and have monkey arms to boot.something like 74' wingspan.. 31" draw... and, although I am right handed, I am left eye dominant.. so I shoot left handed...

So, of the gazillion archers there are in the world, and the few that would want to shoot my hand me downs... There may be about a dozen in MN who are 31" draw and LH... LOL

Deitz, you had me going with the 31" draw length, but I am right handed, and being 6'7" with monkey long arms, I'll hold out until my brother finally gets around to making long bows.....

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
