      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 .

Favorite Climber

I am looking at the summit lines. Who else makes a great climber? I want something that is easy to use and easy to pack in and out of the woods.

I've been happy with Rivers Edge Gator Jaws. It's not the lightest or the quitest to assemble, but I've shot a few deer with it in limited use. For $80, the price was hard to beat. It's a very safe, stable stand, although I would guess most climbers would be.

I am definitely a summit guy. I purchased the summit bullet backpacker a couple of years ago and it is the SAFEST stand I think I have ever had. I chose the bullet because of the front enclosure. I stand when I shoot my bow, and I can lean out to the point my thigh rests on that front bar. I don't feel like I could fall out of it because of that.

The definite plus to this stand is COMFORT. I can sit in that stand all day and not have legs that get cramped up or fall asleep. Heck...If I fell asleep, I wouldn't fall out since it cradles your body and there is a bar all around you.. It's not the lightest stand to carry, but it packs flat, and is only 23 pounds which is not too bad.

You cannot beat a climber for comfort or ease of putting up.

The summit climbers are the best there is in my opinion. Strong, lightweigth, easy to carry, and solid as a rock!

I have used Old-Man climbers for years and lov-em. Fold up flat and the mesh seat is comfortable and sides so you can sit and climb and also some times I sit facing the tree or slide the mesh against the tree.

I bought a Lone Wolf Alpha Sit-n-Climb about two years ago. I really balked at the price (349.99 at the time) but finally bought it. It is my favorite piece of equipment behind my bow and my binos. Light, easy to set-up, and realy comfortable.

I just bought the Summit Razor SS and I love it. It has the front bar but you can fold it under the seat if you don't want to use it for archery. At only 21 lbs you can barely tell it's on your back. Really comfortable too, I'm just afraid I might fall asleep in it. The Summit skin it comes with is a plus too, looks like it would break up your outline pretty good from the bottom.

I to purchased the Summit Razor SS. For the money awesome stand. I agree with the sleeping hazards too. Way to comfortable. Sturdy well build and light. Great buy!!! Ordered direct and had it in 3 days. Kind of like Christmas time when it was delivered. Set up in the yard a few times and shot about 30 arrows at all directions. Recommended!!! Enjoy!!!!

      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. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      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. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
