      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 .

No Stinki' Bugs/Ticks

Recommended Posts

This product is of intrest to any early season deer archery fanatics. Me being one of those, I was wondering if anyone used this product (No stinkin' Bugs by Robinson Outdoors) last fall. I was thinking about it but when I sprayed the No Stinkin' Bugs Unscented at home to see if it was truly odorless I thought it smelled like Off bug spray.

I don't know if it is true or not but to me if I can smell it the deer will certainly be able to smell it. I use other Robinson Outdoor products (clothing and scentfree products) and trust they know what they are doing when it comes to scent control but it was not enought to convince me once I smelled the product. So,I didn't use it.

Has anyone used it? If so, did you see any deer, and if you did, did they detect you and high tail it out of there?

Thanks for any input, Keep the arrows flyin',

I have not used the stuff that you mention, but I did find something I really like. Its called Deerhunters Insect Repellent with Earth Scent, by Repel. It only has 52 % deet in it and works very good... Smells like dirt or mud I guess. Never had any problems with deer picking me out when I wore it either.Seen plenty of bucks with it on.

I used the "no stinkin' bugs" last year. It's fall blend earth scent in a red can. The first night I used it I shot a nice doe, ten yards away, didn't know I was there.

shamalex72, I just moved a couple miles north of Fort Ripley and was wondering if you could offer any info on where to start looking for a spot to bowhunt this fall. I don't really want to hunt public but if I have to I will, don't think I could not be in the tree somewhere! Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!!

Almost all the land around Sebie Lake is public,close to 1500 acres, I think. There aren't too many bowhunters, but it gets pounded pretty hard during rifle. That is where I got the doe I was refering to.

There is a some county land around the area too, I havn't hunted it yet but I going to check it out this year.

Chad-

I have used it and think it was fine. The final scent smelled like fall folage. I say final scent because when you first spray it on, it smelt too strong to me. My buddies tried my can once and wouldn't use it again. I'm also curious to hear what others think.

I too had success using the earth scented "red can". I would be in the tree and not have a skitter on me. I'd meet my buddy at the truck and he'd be sayin," those stinkin' bugs were terrible tonight."

I'm still VERY curious to see if the new FDA approved repellant, PICARIDIN (which is truly effective by the way. I used it at my cabin) will be a viable option for deer hunters. It's not oily. No noticable smell, to me anyway. It doesn't trash rubber and plastic.

I got mine in a product called Cutter Advanced. Totally worth a try.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end 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!
