      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 .

Thinking of a new Bow sight?

Recommended Posts

Whopper Stopper

I have a question regarding sights. I currently have a HHA single movable pin sight. All I ever hunt is whitetails, and I have had good luck with this sight. I guess I am just thinking about trying something a little different and I know a lot of people (including my Brother) are strong advocates of multiple pins. I am just curious what you guys would recommend. Like I said it isn't that I need a new sight, but if I am going to try something new it is a good time as I am done chasing deer. I can see the benefits of not having to adjust the yardage, but I also like not having to remember which pin.

For those that use Multiple pins how many do you go with? What colors? What Diameter? I shoot a Pro 38 Bow Tec so it spits the arrows out pretty good. Thanks for any feedback or suggestions.

for hunting I have mine set at 20-30-40 yards. I add a 50 and 60 if shooting outdoors in the summer at 3D and stuff. you will have to look at the size 19 and size 29 fiber optic to see which you like better. I prefer the smaller diameter outside cuz my eyes are getting older. Inside the larger works better. Lots of practice and you'll get use to which pin for the deer that's standing in front of you. red, green, yellow is a good set up red being 20 and so on. hope this helps a bit and have fun.

i got 4 pins, 10, 20, 30 ,40. green yellow, red, green. dont like my sight its the size 19 (if i remember correctly) and the pins dont give off light very well. not a sight to hunt late with. i have heard that the pins that are wrapped or have lots of fiber optic makes a world of difference. i am also thinking of switching. my pins get too dull and i cant even see them when legal shooting time rolls around. anyone have any advice on a 3/4 pin sight that gives off a good "glow" at low light?

Two pins is a good options with a fast bow like yours - set em at 25 and 35 yards. You will have to aim a bit low for real close shots. I've found green to be the brightest color and I put that for 25. If you use a peep, choose a sight with a round guard. I've shot 1,3, and 4 pins before and like two the best so far.

Low light fav is the optic green.

If you hunt from a tree stand much at all I highly recommend a good pendulum sight. I have used a Predator IV pendulum sight for 3 years now and I will never go back to a fixed pin sight. With the pendulum sight you don't have to worry about yardage anymore. When you are hunting from the ground it is just like having a single pin sight.

      What did you and Wanderer find for ice thicknesses at the lakes you were on?

      Sorry for no more live updates. Got too busy fishing...lol Pretty decent morning bite, slow afternoon, followed up by a very good evening bite. Plenty of noce fish caught if you worked for them.

      fun day for sure.   good to see those that popped up. get that eye pic up rick! Thx Moose for starting us out in a good area and for lining it up.

      Looks like you had a better bite than I did. I really didn’t expect all my gear to be that bad hand pulling out.  Big time failure on my part to not bring my wheeler.  I have too much of a spearing Jones to have left it all back at the truck. I brought a few gills, a seed, a crappie and a 25 inch walleye home.  Biggest gill went 8.  I went through a half dozen heavy pike suckers on the tip up but never dropped the spear.  Only saw one 20 incher that never really got in the hole.  The walleye inhaled the sucker and got the hooks in the throat. Glad you guys got some nice ones!

      I found a new unopened Minnesota V6.0 on Craigslist for 75$ and it was only 2 miles from my house saved me a trip to Cabela's.

      I’m sure we will still be waiting for a bit for even walkable ice but hopefully people in the area can keep there eyes and ears open and let the rest of us know how the ice is and when it get here.
