      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 .

Tiller settings on bow

Recommended Posts

Cooter

Should they be the same(top and bottom) for both single and double cam bows? And you measure from the string to where the limb meets the limb pocket? Thanks.

I think each bow is different, however, would assume they should be pretty close.... I would e-mail the company for the bow you have to be sure.

I'll do that DD, thanks. Is my assumption on the measurements good?

Yep.. there is a level tool that clamps to the string and usually has markings for measurment.. Like this one here.

Move this item up the string to where the level meets the limb and take a measurement.. .do the same for the bottom limb.

I will say this.. I had/have a bow that shoots better with the bottom limb a tad tighter than the top.. Its all about fine tuneing, and how crazy you want to get with it... I used to be a hard core tune guy and spend hours at it. SO that I could shoot X's on a NFAA target at 20 yards with no fletching. As I have gotten older I have become a little more "normal"....

Most single and twin cam bows these days require the tiller be set equal top and bottom. I have not run across one yet nor have a read anything that says to adjust it differently. Easton makes a good tuning document that you can download for free that helps with tuning the bow. I belive in there it says to make sure the tiller is even on both ends.

I got the Easton tuning guide printed out and it is very helpful. However, I called the archery shop where I got my bow and the tiller settings will not be the same on that bow. The easy solution was to crank er all the way down and back it off one turn on each limb. The different tiller settings had something to do with axle being centered on the idler wheel and not on the cam - don't ask me to explain any further cuz I couldn't tell ya. grin.gif

You shouldn't need to worry about tiller settings on a single cam bow for the reason cooter just mentioned. It is important to pay close attention to it on a twin cam bow because the cams need to be in time with each other to eliminate nocking point movement.

Eye-I however still think its important to pay attention to your tiller settings as you dont want one limb more flexed than the other. I could be way wrong on this.. I shoot a cam.5 wich is a hybrid solo type cam.

One thing I learned in my PSE tech training: The string on a single cam bow does not run parallel to the riser. For this reason it is difficult and perhaps inaccurate to measure from the limb pocket to the string. Counting the turns may be the best way to keep the tiller even. It is an important adjustment. Obviously for a twin cam bow, to keep timing...but also to keep the bow shooting smoothly...if the tiller is not set equal, one limb is operating at a different poundage...higher or lower...this will cause nock travel and flight errors. (think of a sling shot with one tight band on one side, and a looser band on the other...how can it shoot straight?)

The first step we learned from George at PSE school..."Check the Tiller..even?...proceed"

good luck and good shooting.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.
