      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 .

Just got done unpacking the hunting gear.I'll work on the pics and no video of this deer.This stand was not set up for the video camera.Everyone else was looking for the other 2 big guys since they were not convinced he was back in the area

Thursday afternoon we had 3 guys. we took two 1 1/2 year old doe for camp meat and passed up 12 bucks.We also passed up a couple big doe that had spoted fawns

Friday we had 4 guys.In all we passed up 27 bucks none over 115 class and about30-35 fawns and does.9 of those buck are in 1 group and went by 2 of us so in all we passed up 18 different bucks and took out the big 8

Sat i was in a stand i put up on friday in hopes to see the big boy.He never showed during daylight hours but i saw a monster in the dark.All i could see was a wide rack about 50% white what looked to be small tines but not 100% sure.I passed up the same buck everyone else did he was about 110" and a couple fawns kinda a slow day

This morning we had south winds so we hit another area. not much going on there so we moved about 6 miles for this evenings hunt.I sat in a small farm yard surounded by corn in a waterway.Saw several bucks but none had more then 6 points and 2 fawns.The other guy who stayed had a pick of 2 stands where we been seeing some big tracks.He picked 1 out and i said geez i would probly sit the other 1 being the farmers picking the bean field next to the woods on the other side they should come out on this side.Well he did'nt want to sit there and i was going to sit it but realy wanted to check out the old farm yard.He said he saw a 26"-30" wide rack buck that came out next to that other stand..GRRRRRRRR

He decided to stay and hunt that stand for the morning hunt.To late man you had your chance i said.That buck will probly not be there in the AM and wont be back in this field until well after dark.I hope he proves me wrong thats why i said what i did so he will stay and hunt monday afternoon.I asume thats the deer leavin the big tracks.Guess we'll have to do some scouting if he's that wide

While i'm working on pics and headed to the taxidermy shop in the morning to get a green score (Gross) lets have a contest to see who can score this buck.I'll post this in the hunting forum as well.I'll post a copy of the green score the taxidermist gives us.This will not be officail since you have to wait the dry time to get it recorded into the book

Winner gets a choice of any season he or she chooses to hunt 2 days all you need is your hunting gear and food money i'll cover the rest.This can be this year or next you make the call if you win.I'm sure many have plans for the upcomming season already

      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?
