      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 .

CVA Kodiak?? HELP A NEWBIE OUT

Recommended Posts

midwesthunter

I'm new to muzzleloading and could use all the advice possible. I am looking at the CVA Kodiak Magnium .50 cal. Does anyone have any experience using these, good or bad? I am also planning on shooting Triple Se7en and AeroTip bullets. I will be using this in MN for whitetails, so a scope is out of the question.

Thanks

A couple years ago it was ranked #1 Muzzleloader on the market. If your looking to get into black powder go with a kodiak or the omega from Thompson Center. Whenever looking at the guns make sure it's a 209 primer which is a lot easier then the disk types. I am shooting Triple Seven powder and I don't notice a difference between that and the pyrdoex so I don't know if it is cleaner or not but get the 50 grain powder tablets and go from there. As for bullets haha. I've got 4 differnt types i'm playing with. Try some and see what works for ya. I'm shooting TC Shockwaves/Hornady's/Barnes/Powerbelt. I'm still trying to find out what my gun likes. But I would suggest a stainless barrel. Easier for clean up.

I bought a CVA Kodiak Pro Magnum two years ago and I like it. I got the stainless barrel also. I am still new the blackpowder scene but it performs great for me. I would like to put a scope on it and see how it shoots at longer ranges. Dont forget to season the barrel before you hunt with it. I shot about 75-100 ball and patches through it using just one 50 grain pellet each time. Good luck and have fun!

I have a Knight Revolution. Never had a problem with it and wouldn't trade it in for the world.

I have one and I really like it. It is real similar to a TC Omega but a little on the cheaperside (cost). Overall it has performed flawlessly for me!

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl.

      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action.

      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
