      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 .

Welcome Duck!

Also congrats on the nice buck Tom.

opefully we'll have some new ducks in the St. Cloud area this weekend. The remaining locals are really spooky. They're flaring away from live ducks on the water.

Thanks Borch!

It was pretty funny, havnt hunted in 4 years, get out to the spot for the first hunt and see 3 bucks, no does.

The one I got was even more amazing. I set up a ground blind expecting them to come from one direction and he ends up comming from my exposed side! Never even saw me, walked about 10 yards from me and on the first shot I misjudged the distance and shot right under him. He jumped and trotted off. The arrow landed in the cattails by the lake so I walked down and picked it up, and thinking the hunt was over, started to pack up my stuff when I looked out of the corner of my eye and there he was comming back down the trail! This time I nailed him and he only went about 100 yards. When I was tacking the blood, ANOTHER buck was walking down the trail right at me and also when I first got to my spot I kicked up a MONSTER buck that had laid there watching me for almost a half an hour before he got up and ran off. Fun times.

Tom, nice story on the buck! Sounds like a great hunt!! I'm surprised there weren't more birds down in the area this weekend. Jason, thanks for the report! I've done quite a bit of fishing up in your neck of the woods. Stayed on Moose and fished muskies this summer. Also do a lot on North Star, and Jesse (we used to stay at Ayer's campground). My uncle lives in Big Fork, and is big into the muskie scene. Are there good duck opportunities up in that area?Good to hear from you too Borsch! I know just to the west of St.Cloud can really load up with mallards too. I've got a brother who scouts for me in that area when he is muskie fishing smile.gifDuck-o-holic

Tom,

I bet that got the heart pumping! Sounds like you had a great hunt. Now with some venison in the freezer you can concentrate on those late season ducks.

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
