      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 .

sighting in broadheads

Recommended Posts

just bought montec G5s cause i was told that the are one of the best flying fixed blade broadheads. only one problem i cant get them even close to flying like i had broadheads flew from my last bow. i paper tuned my bow and the field tips shoot great and can keep a 3 inch group and 40 yards, but the montecs are always about 2" low and 6" left with a big tail whip. i also shot the muzzy MX4s with the same outcome. wondering if its the rest or arrows or the heads themselves. I shoot beman 400 hunters 100 grain tips through a bisquit with 2 inch blazers at 72 lbs and 28" of draw. i love the way the blazers shoot. Another thing i found funny, is the bottom of the bisquit, where the 2 bottom vanes go through, are starting to come back towards the string.

Pooh,

Did you check the rest and see if the vains are catching or You might just have to lighen up the Broadhead. I bought a new bow 4 years ago and was able to use the same arrows and with field points they flew great but I had to change broad heads cause they did the same thing. I went from 115's down to 100's and that fixed the problem. You might have to go to 90's to get the proformance you are looking for. I will give you this atleast you checked how your broad head fly cause I know people that just say hey my field point works fine the broad head has to be the same and never shot one to find out.

Yea i have the same problem. I shot the mx4 and went down and left. Then i shot a 2 blade and was dead center and right like 2in. These are my buddies broadheads but they are the exact same grain. So like you said should i go down to lets say a 90 or 85?

In a article in Field & Stream last year they talked about the fletchings, whether or not they are straight or helical will make a difference. Something to check in to...good luck.

I use muzzy 100 grain 4 blades and they don't hit like field tips they shoot at about 4-5 inches to the right, I re-adjusted my sight and solved the problem. this year I am going to try slick tricks and nap nitrons to see what happens.

good luck

I sight my bow sights in with the broadheads I am using for the year and leave it set there.I would without a doubt check your pins if you change broadheads as they will fly somewhat different.Sight your bow in with the broadheads you are hunting with.My muzzies do hit a little low versus my field points.

If you are confident that you are tuned and shooting bullet holes I would guess you are on the verge of being underspined with your arrows. Like already suggested by someone, try a 90 grain broadhead or try out some 340 spine arrows. I find even though the charts say I need a 400 spine, I have problems shooting a 400 spine arrow. Bumped up to a 340 and no problems. I'm shooting a 28" draw and only about 65 pounds. You are at 72lb and same draw... I would tend to think it might really be a spine problem. The arrow is flexing too much at the release which is letting the broadhead blades grab a little more air and steer your arrow. This isn't happening with the fieldpoints because there are no blades to catch that air. The other thing you could try is very small 1/32 inch adjustments in your rest and nocking point to see if they group any better. NAP has a tuning guide online and I think Easton does too. They tell you which way to try bumping your rest and nocking points based on how your arrows are grouping. If you don't feel like fiddling with all the adjustments and arrow changes, I would just adjust my sight. I'm sure you can get them to shoot the same as your field points but it might take more time than you are willing to commit this close to the season opener. Good luck. Let us know how things work out. Any questions?

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
