      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've tried it and had success with deer hitting it. I've also used BLB's mix posted on this site and had just as good if not better luck with it and it is by far cheaper.

It's only illegal if it contains a food product. I looked at BLB's ingredients and it's perfectly legal. I couldn't find the ingredient list for deer co-cain so I can't say one way of the other. I can say that the molasses-based stuff that's out there would be considered baiting. Rule of thumb - if it's a scent or mineral, it's legal. Adding corn syrup or molasses to your favorite mineral mix would be baiting. If it contains a food base (e.g., molasses, corn), it's illegal. For example, Gander is currently selling a $20 cake that's corn-based. While it looks like a mineral block, it's illegal. Remember, just because they sell it doesn't mean it's legal to hunt over.

I hope that helps.

Buy yourself some good old Morten salt with Iodine and a bottle of Evian or tap water. Head out to the place you see some buck signs and work the salt into the ground. Then water the ground so the salt will leech into it farther.

If you want to see a buck with its head in the ground, this is a proven method. It is also legal and cheap on the wallet. Oh, and make sure the ground is dirt that you are applying salt to and not rocky. It will be easier for the deer to dig a hole.

I put out some deer caine about a month ago. The deer haven't paid much attention to it in one spot. The squirrels seem to like it a lot. I will check another spot tonight. Perhaps there it is all gone and a huge 12 pointer is down on his knees licking up the dirt.....

Good Luck!

1 part standard loose stock (white) salt

2 parts red loose cattle mineral

1 part di-calcium phosphate

I buy the stuff at Fleet Farm in 50 pound bags. Dig a hole about 6-10 inches deep, and about three feet across. Mix the materials well. I like to dump each bag in a corner of my Otter trailer, and then pull them all to the center to mix them. Dump the whole works into the hole, and mix some of the dirt from the hole back into the mix. Refresh every six months or so.

It is getting a little late in the season for them to be effective. The deer crave them more in the spring and summer. In may, June, and July, I got tons of pictures of deer digging in the minerals. Once the velvet comes off, buck use drops dramatically. They still give it a sniff, but are more interested in the clover right now.

The great thing about these licks is they give deer the mineral they need and crave once it starts warming up in the spring.

Oh yeah,not to be a wisenhimmer or anything but here goes,I believe the product is called "deer caine"not deer cocaine although deer on cocaine would probably be almost impossible to stick as they would'nt stand in one place to long.c63

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      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. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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"
