      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 .

The same buck from my previous pictures visited my trail camera again. This time we get a good look at him from the front. Any more attempts at scoring this deer would be great.

Hopefully this little guy is related and will be nice in a couple years!

From the deer that I have scored and the bucks that I have my guess that the buck would make Pope&Young.

It look pretty even on both sides,decent spread,but not alot of mass.

It is suprising but mass adds alot to a rack and the uneven racks will loose alot of points in score.

My guess,128-135.It takes a very good 8 pointer to make the book.I have a smaller 9 pt buck that scored 127 and this buck looks to be better in both tine height and mass.

I was guessing the same as leeharvey. I would guess in the mid to upper 130's gross. He will have some deductions; as I thought I seen a sticker point off the one g2...(not looking at the pic while writing this)? Nice buck. Long brow tines...pretty cool looking!!

Yup, the number that popped in my head when I saw the pic was 132. I know it's impossible to score a deer down to the single digit by looking at it, but I always mentally do anyway. So, I'm in-line with the other two guesses. Not only is it a really nice buck, its rack has nice "character points" in my book too. You'd better hope he doesn't stumble over in front of my stand before you get a crack at him!

In reading another post I think Tyler is talking about SD bow so I apologize. I'm glad we don't have to wait the extra week here in MN.

If your on private land i'd hold off a year and let him grow one more year.....his features make him look only about 2 1/2 years in my opinion....could be a monster in another year.

      Good hearing from you, always enjoyed reading of you & Doc's adventures.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.

      Heading up to Beacon Harbor tomorrow for a couple days. Hopeful for decent weather and hungry fishes!

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
