      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 .

Camo for birch and poplar trees?

Recommended Posts

Rotwieler

what do you use when your hunting in birch or poplar(don't know how to spell smirk.gif) im wearing desert camo coveralls and they seem to all ways look up at me even though im not moving.

i washed the coveralls with that sport wash UV killing stuff. i only used a cap full though, do i need to use more? any advice would greatly be appreciated!

those are the trees i try to avoid unless there is a oak tree directly behind it with the limbs protruding around you to help break you up. otherwise maybe try snow camo?

Skyline camo... it's getting harder to find though. Can't keep up with the marketing of mossy oak and real tree...

Try their horizon or cold morning patterns. Just do a search using the name Skyline camo.

Good Luck!

I hear you on the poplar trees. I got busted by 4 different deer over the long last weekend. I saw one and she came close but then went downwind of me. the other 3 I did not see but I heard them blow/snort or whatever you call it. I try to have some backdrop but it isn't always available and those climbers work so good on poplar trees. Thanks for the tip Labs on that camo. I will have to try and find some.

Sometimes I zip-tie some brush/branches to my climber just to break up the sillhoute(sp) of my body. I have still gotten busted a few times but it seems to help.

I try to get really high in those, and try to sit on the back side of the tree, so you are acually looking the wrong way, then for the shot you stand up and turn around and shoot. Not as nice as looking at where there are coming from, but i do that alot. It has saved me a quite a few times. I get to hide from them if i dont plan on shooting them, you also get away with drawing with no problems. I do this on most of my stands. Those dang does are curious and if they see anything out of the ordinary they will blow and screw up the hole night. But if they blow and stay there they get drilled. Thats how i solve those pesky does.

If you ever get busted by them looking at you, you should move your stand, becasue they will continue to look up at the tree even if your not there. Your best bet is to move farther up the trail to get them before they get to your old tree. Good luck.

Skyline is the way to go with those types of trees! I use it in the aspens out in colorado and it blends very well. I have a photo of myself sitting against an aspen and eating lunch from about thirty yards and at first glance it just appears to be a skyline mountain view shot. I have it on my bulletin board at work for when I need to get away from the daily grind.

Skyline is a good one. They make or used to make a pattern called Apparition. Stuff would work great in the snow too.

There was an interesting study on ArcheryTalk forum where a guy had his wife take black and white pictures of him in different camo patterns in his tree stand. The one that looked the best against the sky was the snow camo. I can't get access to the site from work otherwise I would post a link.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
