      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 .

People must be searching that area for sheds. Though it looks as if most of them are still wearing their horns

I dont see the 2 biggest deer in that photo. The photo isnt the best but I think I would be able to pick them out. I hope someone didnt poach them babies. I have never found a shed down there. Not that I go every day or anything close to that. I think the RR workers beat us to it all the time.

Some nice deer running in that crew.

It's a difficult spot to get into for shed hunting. I know of 2 guys that made it in there a few weeks back and they didn't find anything. They talked to one of the railroad guys and he said they pick them up when they find them.

I have a bigger copy if you want Steve, I shrunk it for internet purposes.

There were a couple monsters down there You'd see every day along the river just as you were coming onto the bridge coming from the west side of 35. Can you imagine if they opened that area to the city hunt!? grin.gif

Great pic Nate!

Nice Pic, It seems late for so many to still have horns.

I was down that way in Nov working and watched a heavy 8 trot into a big group of does and moved the one that smelled good out of the heard like a sheep dog. He had her cornered by some cars and would not let her go. Along came these two basket 8 and they would try and try to get close but the big guy would just lower his head and chase them away. It is kinda funny in the morning heading home from work it look like a cattle feed lot out there cause they are all lined up by the rail cars.

If you walk the woods right under the High Bridge near Birch street you will probably find sheds there in that small woods. Last fall I got a picture of a 14 pointer and 2 huge 12's all standing together real close to where the current picture was taken.

I havent worked over in Duluth too much lately so I cant say that I have seen that buck recently, but I am sure that is the one that was 14 last fall.

My office is on Garfield and I see them quite abit. And Northlander I am pretty sure I saw those big boys you are talking about sparring awhile back. It was quite a site and I wish I had a good camera with me to capture it. And also I have seen a beauty under the interstate just off Michigan St. He was literally laying down right under the bridge. It was at least a 12 pointer but it was a very unique rack. Me and the guy I work with drove by 3 times to check him out. Another time I wish I had a good camera in my work truck.

Thats probably the big one I have seen. Very unique rack. One day last month I saw that whole crew out on the ice in front of the [PoorWordUsage] plant. I wish my camera had more zoom. That would have been a great pic.

Here is a few more pictures from deer central. Out of curiosity, when was the picture in the 1st post taken? These were taken just under 3 weeks ago. No sign of any buck there that is any where close to a 14. The biggest one is a 10, but wouldnt score well because of the common base on his right antler. There is a dandy 8 in there though.

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."
