      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 .

Corn Stands

I have read in a few posts on this forum of a corn stand. I understand the concept is being able to hunt standing corn fields, which would be awesome. How high are they? Do the deer ever pick you out? How do you guys make them? It sounds like an great way to hunt so any advice would be great.

We chop a small opening in the middle of the feild somewhere and brush a groundblind in with cornstalks and that seems to work well. When doing this the biggest thing to factor is the wind.

Good idea! I have also heard of people modifying ladder stands so that they stand on their own but I am not sure how to do this. Do the farmers mind if you cut some of their corn or do you do this with your own crops? Just curious.

Most would mind, I sure wouldn't do it without asking & I hope you know them well if you ask.

I hear you guys! I know where I hunt, they would be pretty miffed if you did cut corn and probably look at you funny if you asked them. But, if its your own, it would be great way to hide.

We own the land we hunt on and plant corn feilds strictly for deer, now if you can clear a small area being you own the land or have permission to do so I would recommend it because it does work very well. The opening in the middle of the field gives the deer a sense of security and gives you a good shot when they get there.

I have heard of several guys doing this. All of them asked for permission to do it first and also offered to compensate the farmer in a variety of ways - i.e. working for him, buying him something, or giving him a lot of deer meat. Keep in mind you are taking away part of his livelihood in many instances. It's the same as saying, can I slice a little bit of your paycheck off for someone with an office job. They're going to expect something in return. And hunting for free on their land is a totally different story as they're not losing anything per se unless you destroy part of their land.

we've built small platforms right on the irrigators in fields we have permission to hunt; owners dont mind as long as were not drilling anything into waterlines. ive found that the deer love to use the tire path of the irrigator as a trail, especially where it intersects with the access road to the pivot. the setup works best when the irrigator is parked near said access road...giving a guy good viewing up and down the trail.

Those sketches and pictures would be great! My email is geeter52 @hotmail.com. I would like to get one made so I can hunt it this year before they take the corn out. Thanks!

Can anyone tell me what kind of weather will keep the deer out of the corn? rain, wind, etc. I am hunting some public land that butts up to a corn field and a bean field. Sometimes the deer enter the beans via the corn field and sometimes they enter from the woods. I think when they come from the corn, that they where probably bedded down in the corn. If I knew what kind of weather would keep them out of the corn, I would hunt the public land just on those days.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"
