      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 .

I'm not trying to be Cliff Klavin here, but heres my take. The dominants fight their whole life to establish their supreme power and even during breeding season they constantly ward off other suitors to their pack females. My guess is over the years of traits picked up through breeding, that it finally has become part of the genetics and a dominant trait to pass on its strength and right to breed being the reigning Alpha male. Remember the saying only the strong survive. Just a theory. And probably didn't add anymore to what you already knew.

Around here i dont think that just the dominant coyotes breed. They break up into pairs, as in late Febuary and March thats the only way you see them or find them. We hardly ever see packs here, mostly two's or singles. We have had 5 come in at one time but that was quite a while ago.

IN theory only the dominant bucks breed and only the dominant Tom turkeys do the breeding. They don't fight off the lesser male sonly to let them mate the lesser females.

If a lesser male breeds a female it was luck or a result of overpopulation and there is no way a single male can mainting control on the whole group.

Same as around here.We used to hunt 7 days a week all winter long.Come late Feb about once every 3-4 days we would see 3 one male/two females and the male was 38-40lbs.Otherwise you see lone males searching or a pair of them locked up.Seems like the smaller males in certain areas were able to breed at will

I think this was due to the fact the older males started to feel the pressure holed up during day light hours and the young males figured it was a great time to get lucky and not get kicked around

I'm amazed after a winter of good snow fall not 1 yote track can be found for miles.Come fall there just as thick as they were the year before

How about some yote stories?

Here is two. Last year i had a yote sneak up on my bigfoots. My lab whined when she saw it, that made him come on a run. Must have thought there was competition. I Shot him at 35 yds. And, last weekend for the local pheasant season, my buddy's setter locked up so we ran over to it when my lab jumped into flush out the..not bird but yote. THe setter was only two feet away before the coyote ran out. We dumped it at 30 or so yards.

any other stories?

Here is a story and a question. I was pheasant hunting in a refuge out in western MN. It is a refuge for waterfowl but deer and pheasant hunting is allowed. Anyway we were walking through a small grove and kicked out a yote. I was going to blast it but my buddy yelled not to, said we couldn't shoot them in the refuge. Can anyone verify that or is it probably a case by case basis.

      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.

      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"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
