      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 .

Getting started

Recommended Posts

robbro

I would like to get started in archery. I don't have any desire to hunt I just want to shoot targets. I would like to get a decent recurve bow, arrows and the rest of the stuff I need. Can someone recomend a good shop in the south metro area?

hey robbro. There are 2 archery shops in our area (I'm in Eden Prairie). Schaeffer Archery is in Burnsville on Cliff Rd. You can take 35W to cliff and exit. Go east under the freeway and keep going to 12th ave. They are in the next little industrial complex on the right. Its a pretty good shop but a little high end on prices and equipment. They ahve a few lanes for shooting and a video range. I've done stuff there and had work done there, but it always cost too much. Nice guys though and they know their stuff as long as you have the brands that they carry. He didn't know how to work on my Darton.

The other shop is Cabin Fever Sports in Victoria. Take 494west to Hwy 5 west and keep going for about 15mins. They are on the right as you come into Victoria. They are a full service sporting goods place that has an indoor archery range.They carry lots of products and the service is top notch. I now go here for all my archery needs as well as some wants. grin.gif They've got great hours and can really help a guy get started. I bought the bow I have now used from there. They have shooting leagues there too. The prices are reasonable and they are nice folks too. Jeff, the owner is always in there working. He recently signed on a the sponser of our archery forums so supporting them supports our site too.

Looks like Bloomington has an Archery range at 96th and France on the east side, but I've never been there. Says they've got 5 targets. Eden Prairie also has a nice archery range right near the airport. Its got 6 nice foam targets (instead of hay bales) and it has a roof over the shooting area and barriers to keep arrows from leaving the range. EP parks also has shooting leagues during the spring, summer and fall.

If thats not enough to digest smirk.gif you can email me with more questions. ahamilton@mn.rr.com

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
