      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 .

Think i need to invest in a camera that can reach out and grab some looks.Those long range camera shots only work when you shoot the deer to show the antlers better.

I'll show ya a few others i got when you arrive.This is the only pic that turned out of him and it realy did'nt turn out but atleast the frame is half way visible.Well into the mid 200 class.Never seen 1 this size to compare it and he never stood still long enough to take a good solid guess

This is the 1 on Friday afternoon (It has Robs name)all over it.Same field but about 500 yards away from where big boys been in/out.8 pointer with 21-22" inside spread guessing a 145-150 class buck

Do you mean typical or non-typical when you say well into the mid 200 class? World record typical is 213. Looks like a heck of a deer. wink.gif

Sorry rooster

I already asked the farmer if i could maybe do some deer hunts off his land and he flat out said NO he does'nt want any hassles.I even told him he could make some good money and he just shook his head and walked away.So i left it at that and will never ask again

All i can say is that when your driving any place where you can hunt dont look forward look out the side windows you'll be surprised whats actualy out and about in areas that dont appear that good.This morning i saw several bucks 125 class in the middle of know where.You can bet next year i'll be looking to see if any of these survived the season.I also spotted a 150-155 class buck i got permission for he also was next to a 1/2 acre woods 20 miles from the next woods all beans and corn fields around him.

Just so happen to be this woods had plenty of oaks.I just spotted this deer driving down the highway looking out my side window

This is what hunting is coming to! Why go out and scout and put in all the hard work to earn a nice deer when you can sit on the internet and buy one. The more posts I see like this, the more I want to give up hunting. I do not want to be grouped with these people. Just my .02

Sorry you feel that way.Maybe that buck is only a 115 class buck.All i hope for is someone shoots that deer while he's in his prime.I hope it's someone in are party though.If not i just think it needs to be shown off 1 way or another.Not many deer around like this that i know of.

Good luck this season and have a safe happy hunting season

I don't think I jumped down your throat. I was just giving my opinion(Just my .02). Most people will type just kidding after their remark when they are kidding. This may help in the future, so people don't misunderstand you. I do not come on here to stir people up!! I do not know you, but when you make a comment like you did I am going to voice my opinion. Nothing makes me more upset than hearing someone buy their way to a big buck and then call themselves a hunter. JUST MY .02!!! Amen

The internet brings out the worst in people. People say things with their fingers that they would never think of with their mouth.

If those pictures were shown to each one of us individually, the comments about authenticity or the comment about the "degradation of hunting as we know it" would never happen.

That's a huge buck. If I had the means, I would pay to shoot it. I don't so I won't. I also don't have the time to scout one either. I hunt maybe 4 days a year. I don't scout preseason. I go out and put up my stand in basically the same place every year. It is all perspective. I don't need to shoot a big buck to feel good about myself.

I am just happy seeing deer.

There are more important things in life than heads on the wall. Some people just need to think about that for a little while.

I'll update before extreme and his buddy get home from the 5 or 6 hour drive they had to come hunt

Sat morning got up at 3:45am on stands about an hour later.Just as it was breaking daylight started to down poor.That lasted prety much all day.

Sat evening we got to sit in the drizzle with the wrong winds to get to where big boy was but i had Extremes friend on the big 8 pointer he never saw that buck.We put are bows in the machineshop just at dark and shined the field he was hunting next too and there were several groups of deer.3 bucks in 1 group.2 nice 160 class frames 1 being an 8 the other being a 10.Neither 1 had much for tines but 1 heck of a main frame.Shined the field accross the road and there was the 8 pointer(9) headed to who knows where thats the 1 i have a pic posted of

Sunday morning woke up to 40 mph winds and more rain.We decided not to hunt but to scout.We saw several nice 120-150 class bucks.1 might have been in the 160 class so we shifted stands around since the deer patterns are still changing

Sunday evening i think extreme saw 5 does 0 bucks.His friend was set up on a corn ladder stand about 20 yards off the road between 2 corn fields in hopes 1 of the 3 nice bucks we saw together laying 70 yards off the road bedded down would end up crossing into the hay field. 1 buck came by to small to shoot so he passed at 7 yards.Being there were 3 bucks all laying together we just decided not to make a stalk and possibly get busted by 1 of them before getting a shot off.So those 2 snuck in the corn field with a corn ladder stand with the gusty winds it was no problem to get the stand where it was needing to be.The wrong buck came by is all before it got dark out

The winds were still wrong to hunt big boy so i sat a stand about 100 yards from where he had been feeding on the other side of the creek.1 fawn showed up 5 minutes after i was on stand.It stayed there for an hour feeding .It got down wind of me and started to stomp it's feet for 5 minutes then i decided to end it and made a shot close to it's feet and let it rip.Fawn jumped about 6foot straight in the air and that was that.Now i was back in good shape.About 20 minutes later 2 small shoe boxers walked 13-14 yards from me with about a 115 class buck.Thats all i saw on my stand

We did not hunt this morning as it was raining again

When they arrived on friday we went for a drive to see what was out and about just before dark.We saw 1 nice 140-150 class buck 1 field over from where extreme was hunting and a couple small bucks.2 guys i hunt with saw a 160-170 class buck.We ended up seeing a glimps of that buck sunday morning while scouting and staying dry

Even though the weather was crap we had a great time.I'm prety sure those 2 will be back hunting again some time real soon.Since we had a chance to see a few nice sized bucks and extremes friend enjoyd the corn ladder stand so much.I'll bet as the bucks start to heat up those 2 will be biting the ole finger nails waiting for the call

(Extreme)

I had a great time.Tell your friend as well.Maybe next time you wont bring the rain and 40mph wind with ya.I'm looking forward to the next outing.By the way next time dont bring that crap what taste like mouth wash bring something a lil more tasty

We had a good time as well. The weather was dissappointing. And the beans turning was dissappointing. Neither one we had control over. The bucks in that area are huge and we will be back to try to kill one later in the season...guarantee it. TJM has some stellar land to hunt on, with some giants. Anyway, should have some veni by the end of the week up here...hopefully. I can't believe you think Crown Royal tastes like mouthwash....that is the nector of the gods...it also helps you sleep. Good time....piss poor weather!

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!
