      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 .

That's funny, I was just told by a Chanhassen/Carver County person that there were no archery ranges in Chanhassen.

There is a nice one located on Lexington Ave. about a mile north of Hwy 694.
About a dozen lanes, a few of them are 40 yards. Don’t forget to bring the bug-spray!
It’s right behind the old Twin Cities Arsenal, too bad they don’t open that up for a special permit bow-hunt!

Cabin Fever in Victoria has a nice 20-yard range indoors and 40 yard outside.

There is one right off the parkway between Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet too.

Rapids archery in Coon Rapids is the best place I have been to by far! They have many targets at different distances as well as stands to shoot from at different distances... your shooting at deer & bear and so on.... it's nice and since I can't post their website, I'll try and be creative... try rapidsarchery. either org or com and see what you find.

It is open for a special archery hunt, but it's youth only.


There is a range at Keller Park north of Lake Phalen.(Hwy 61)

There is also a range in Bunker Hills Park.

Tarten Park in Lake Elmo, but you may have to be a member to walk the range, but I think the practice lanes are open to the public. There is also sod butts available for broadheads.

There is also indoor ranges at Bwana & Compound Doc.

Just remembered a couple more, Lake Elmo Park reserve, and Oakdale Gun Club has a few butts never shot my bow at either.

I think thats it.

Another vote for the Rapids/Bunker Hills park archery range. It's in the Bunker Hills park in Coon Rapids off Hansen Blvd. There's one field range and three hunting ranges. rapidsarchery.org is the web site for the club.

Yeah, I read in the regs-book that it was open for a youth hunt. Unfortunately, that would exclude me.

Some of the ranges that are being listed do charge a fee. We should also include that information as well. Although I am not sure of the cost I know that Bwana & Compound Dr. charge for lane time and I believe that you have to be a member of the Oakdale Gun Club in order to shoot or you are limited to “public hours”.

The outdoor range in Chanhassen located by Lake Susan was closed for the year because they were doing some work back there. I work right next to the park and I was going to teach someone how to shoot a bow this year at this spot... oh well. There is also an archery range in Plymouth, at least there was 2 years ago so I don't know if it's still there. It was in the park across from Lifetime sports center. The range was not setup well since they staggered the shooting positions and not the targets so from time to time people would be shooting at 20 yards and another at 50 yards!!! I have my own range now that I can shoot out to 100 yards on so I have not shot any other ranges recently.

There is a really nice one on the Rosemount and Inver Grove Heights border. It's at the Spring Lake park preserve.

They have about 30 or so targets. 5 yards to 70 yards. Stands to shoot from also. There are deer, bear, turkey, elk, and antelope targets. Really sweet course.

Take HWY 52 south to Pine Bend Rd. Take left. Follow dirt road until you see the signs.

Eats, have you been to the one in Elm Creek Park lately? They have a whole bunch of that place closed off and are tearing up the roads, etc. I drove back there and it looked like the archery range was torn up too.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.
    • Jory
      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
