      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 going to skip out of work a bit early today. I set a stand on Sunday near where I have been seeing the does' travel to a bean stubble field. There is a new scrape at the edge of the field so hopefully Mr. Buck will be following. Hopefully the wind dies for the evening hunt. Good luck all.

Busted bad last night.

Put an arrow through a doe this morning. Am waiting for her to bleed out before I get too much further along. I made a questionable hit, back a bit, and apparently low. Arrow passed thru completely, covered with a layer of greasy fat. Found a bit of white hair, so low exit.

Blew her out of her bed, which was only 15 yards from where I shot her. Plenty of good red blood, hoping it was liver. However, I waited a good hour before tracking, knowing the hit was suspect. Not dying within the hour was a bad sign. Lots of blood in the bed, and good blood trail leaving both from where I hit her, and from where she bedded.

Been here before, just have to wait a bit, and try to recover her tonight.

Went out last night as the wind died down, I saw 5 deer. The buck activity is really picking up. I blew the grunt last night and had an 8 pointer come running in so fast I wasn't ready. It's OK he wasn't as big as I would have liked. 10 Minutes later a fork trots in to inspect the noise, 10 minutes after that another fork is feeding in the cornfield in front of me. Good deer movement, get out and get going. I took Friday morning off, hopefully it will pay off.

Was she bedded when you shot her? When you going out again to look for her? Along the river? Okay thats three questions...good job.

Joel,

Good luck finding her, it sounds like this story should have a happy ending.

When you say you blew her out of her bed, do you just mean you walked up on her & jumped her after the shot? When they start bleeding good like that again, often when you go back they piled up within 100 yards or much less.

I gave her an hour after I hit her, knowing it was a questionable shot. I went to look for her, and then blew her out of the bed.

Made the mistake of telling my old man where I shot it.

He could only take fixing the chisel plow for about an hour....then, tore up into the woods with the tractor to go look for it. Didn't look for blood, he just starts wandering aimlessly. Gives up after an hour (which I'm sure means 5-10 minutes), then finds it laying by the tractor. Crazy old farmer smile.gif

Hit was a bit low, and a bit back.....bottom of the liver. Deer was a 1-2 yr. old doe, which will eat nicely!

I passed on a really big deer this morning early. Right under my stand. Couldn't see rack but I'm sure there was one there. Deer were really moving this morn.

      I haven't ice fished this lake in about 4 years. It had a pretty large scale winter kill a few years back. I am sure it has since rebounded. Lakes like this typically come back pretty quickly following winter kill, especially with the mild winters we have had as of late. Mayhew used to be loaded with smaller perch, and had decent crappie action at times. I too would be curious to know how Mayhew is doing. Wish I could be more help to you.

      Be very cautious on lakes even further north of the Ogilvie area lakes. As of 3 days ago, there was still significant open water on Ripple, Hickory, Big Pine, Cedar, Bay, Farm Island, and numerous other lakes in the Mille Lacs, and Aitken area. Be very cautious, take your time, and test the ice every 10 yards or so, particularly if you get anywhere near anything that would be considered mid lake. Area resorts and bait shops are very reluctant to give advice that would be considered a green light to access even the small lakes. Be safe....

      East access..... only 3.5" - 4"  200 yards out.  .... don't know north acces as I saw enough to  stay off.

      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!
    • walleyewalby
      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
