      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 .

Upcoming Season

Ok....who here has been and will continue to be worthless at work until bow season comes along? Man, I can't get it out of my head. Bow hunting for 20 years and it still gets to me tongue.gif. Just trying to drum up some conversation, and want to see if anybody out there is as wacko as me!

I'm so busy trying to get my 'before hunting' list done that I haven't had time to think about it. Still need to get out and trim some stands, move a couple, make another one, more shooting practice, work up the fall food plots, plow some more ground for next spring, and oh yeah the wife has a couple of to-dos.

I would have to agree with Deitz, its fun to get out in September if its not too hot but when the end of Oct comes and the leave are turning color and its cooled down and the pheasants are cackling and you know the bucks are going to start roaming - nothing better!!! At my age, its even better than sex!!!

I'm pretty sure I think about it more than sex.

If I start thinking about the big buck I saw last year and can't sleep.

The guys I work with help run the Duluth hunt and we tend to get a bit off task when bow hunting comes up. Tonight is the lottery to determine which zone I get to hunt. After tonight I will really be pumped because I can do some serious scouting and research on the particular mega trophy deer I will be hunting. My personal restrictions this year are 12 points or 170". The crazy thing is it's entirely realistic!

I'm right with ya brother!!!!!!!. The wife gets mad at me when I get home from work. There are three things I'm doing. Shooting, watching the outdoor channel or puttzing around with all of my gear. Well there is the Twin's thing too. Just like a kid in a candy shop. Every pay-day have to take a trip to the sporting goods store and check out the new toys and buy little things that you might just need. Now as for being worthless at work HMMM Don't tell anyone but I sit and play on this forum while I'm at work. If I can't be hunting or fishing I might as well be reading about it plus getting paid for it. Have to be glad my boss isn't into hunting or this forum. As for the sex quotes from the others, just have to say to bad I enjoy my wife as much as I enjoy hunting and fishing. Helps when she enjoys the hunting and fishing just as much as I do. Only problems are it make it harder to get up in the morning.

I'm getting pretty psyched, but I'd have to agree with Blackjack's first paragraph. I've got a lot of things to do hunting & nonhunting related before I'm ready for 9/16, but I'll definitely be in the tree then. I'm still fishing & have lots of firewood to cut yet as well.

Well at least I know I'm not the only one. I don't lose any sleep over season either...except maybe the night before. I just think about it alot....I mean alot. I still have to go hang a couple of portables out next weekend. Went scouting a couple of weeks back and seen 1 decent buck. I personally love the first 2 weeks of season. So far the skeeters are non-existant up here, so that will keep me from fidgeting too much. Hopefully the next 30 days or so will go by fast grin.gif

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.
