      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 .

no no..Forget about the 1 in my hand and the sun faded shed.The other 1.Thats the shed off of this 1.The 1 in my hand is dead someone shot that 1 on opening day i guess

I never found the other side and that just happens to be the side facing the camera.When i 1st saw this buck i knew he had several more points on this side.I think i counted all the points that were scoreable with 1 in ? i have 29 points scoreable and a possible.His base and around eye guards are just full of points on both sides.On his left side you can count 9 or 10 and thats only half way down the pipe he has that many around his eye guards on that same side

He had a big kicker(drop tine) off his right side that was somewhere around 16" i see half thats broke off or even more

We watched the clip on a big screen tv.Put it on slow motion and start counting.

All i can say is thats a hog i'm guessing the base all the way to the last point are close to 9" if not more in some places on his left side.Right sides not as big or heavy set with half the points as well

I know you all want better pics.Well i got 1 better then the last 1 i posted of him.Take it or leave it until were just lucky and get another crack at him working that scrape line wed afternoon.Other pic i had posted was a lil dark and when i add some white to it i lose the antlers so instead of posting it and getting crap that i need better pics i'll leave it out.We almost had close encounters if the other buck had not shown up twice in a row.That other buck is just like some people i know.Thick headed

I would not mind coming down to hunt with you. The bucks on my farm in Lakeville his hard to pinpoint any of the big bucks this year, even with 5 acres of turnips out there. What do say. You could even come up tp my farm and tell me where you think the big boys are four eyes are better then 2.

Ok am I dumb? What is the JIMMER syndrom?

That is one heck of a deer. Good luck and get off of the Internet and go kill em'. Or feel free to stay on here and give me directions to your land smile.gif

Seriously, what kind of plots do you make? I would like to come down and video tape you taking one. Heck, I, as anyone on here would like to just see a deer like that.

This brings up a question that is off topic. I am making a recurve bow (hand made) - any ideas?

It is someone elses attempt at cutting someone down, if you have read all the threads you know.

Actually I beleive that it's a reference to a movie called Escanaba in da Moonlight. It stars Jeff Daniels of Dumb and Dumber fame.

The character named Jimmer Negamanee (Wayne David Parker) was a guy that spoke jibberish after he was abducted by aliens and I think was they are refering to is the ability of this buck to have the same effect on a guy.

Easy there.... I meant this term was used in another thread to try to discredit the postings of big deer and the alledged bigger one that TJM arrowed. And I meant if you read one of the past threads, you'll see it come up.

Sorry if you took it wrong.

      I've experienced the same thing - V can be tricky through the ice. There's a ton of structure to choose from and you're pretty limited with how much you can move. We've had the most success just staking out a likely spot during primetime. Drill a bunch of holes and wait for the fish to move up. Tip-ups have helped to cover more ground and locate fish. Like Cliff said, bite windows are real short so you've gotta be out there when it's happening!
    • rainylakefisher
      Did they ever find the two missing boaters from the incident a couple weeks ago?  Haven't seen anything...
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I agree with gimruis. Do not expect to see the same type of action or type of bite that you can get in the summer on open water! Generally the winter bite is short, ( a couple hours in the morning and a couple hours just as it is getting dark), especially if you are fishing for walleyes. Dark cloudy days can sometimes be the exception. What works one day may not work the next day also. I like to jig with a 1/8 oz. to 1/4 oz. spoon baited with a crappie minnow or just a minnow head on one of my lines. The other line is a plain hook set line with either a fathead minnow, shiner, pike sucker, or a rainbow chub as bait. Type of minnow that works best varies greatly depending upon where you are fishing! I like to set up close to rocks that drop into deeper water most of the time. Cliff

      anyone with any info as to how the ice conditions are up this way???????????

      While I can't offer you any sound advice on your success while ice fishing, I can tell you that very rarely is the consistent success you've had in open water going to be near as good as it is on ice.   And that is mostly because the water is bitter cold and fish are cold-blooded, meaning that their activity is only going to be as much as they need to survive.  Other things working against you are the inability to cover as much water as you could from a boat and not as many bait/lure options, in addition to being limited to a vertical style of fishing.  I'm not saying that you should give up completely, but just keep in mind that a variety of factors comparing one to the other could be why your success isn't sustained.

      I have owned a place on Lake Vermilion(WE) since 2011 and have absolutely enjoyed every visit and season on the lake.  Our knowledge of the lake and fishing patterns have grown tremendously.  However, this experience has not translated success onto the ice.  We catch some fish, but feel like we should be doing better.  Typically we use small gear 1/16th or 32nd jigs with minnows, Spoons with just a minnow head or when we go after panfish we'll use wax worms.  We fish all the same spots and don't catch nearly as big or many fish.  When we do catch most of our fish, it's typically on mud flats and we drill a lot of holes.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful
