      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 .

Doesn't your barrel have an adjustable sight? You should be able to bring it down by adjusting the rear sight. Another option would be to buy a B-Square and a scope or red dot site for your gun. That would also allow you to get it sighted in.

If that barrel does not have ajustable sights, I would bring it back and get one that does (or get the cantilever to use with a sighting device). As far as changing slugs, it can make a big difference. In my gun, the Hornady SST's (which I will use this year) hit a good foot higher than the Winch. PG's or Remmington Core Locks. That is why it is important to select one type of slug, sight your gun in, and then hunt with the same. I do think your goal should be to have the gun hit where you aim it. One of my hunting partners gets great groups with your gun and the Federal Barnes sabots with a red dot.

Good luck - time is running out.

Everybody's gun shoots a little differently for different ammo. There seems to be one brand that fits each gun the best. The Remington CoreLokt Ultras are the ones for me, they shoot awesome groups at 100 yrds. At 385 gr they're quite a bit bigger than the 300 gr Hornadys and shoot only around 100 fps slower. They're also hollow points where the Hornady's aren't. They are kinda spendy though at around $15, had to spend $30 the other day just to sight the thing in. Kinda late to start experimenting though in my opinion unless you're in Zone 3/4 second season that is.

Just got back from the farm and my 835 Ulti-Mag Slug Barrel is hitting about 8 inches high at 50 yards and the rear sight is all the way down. I hate to have to adjust my aim for the sight but I guess for this year I will have to do that. Next year will either mount a scope on it or take it to a gun smith and have him do some work on it. Hope that you all have a very SAFE and successful hunt. We leave to the great nort' tomorrow morning. Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

I don't know why everyone says sighting in now is too late, if you sight in last weekend or in march or today it only takes a few hours and its better to do it the day before than not at all.

I had the same problem with my slug barrel last year and this year when I went to sight it in. I was shooting Brenekke rotweiler's and they were consistently low and left. I had my back sight adjusted all the way to bring it up and they were still low. I was about ready to bring it to a gun smith and see if the sight was broke but decided to try a different brand. I bought some Remington slugger's and they shoot dead on and the rear sight is back in the middle of its travel range. It suprised the heck out of me that different brands shoot that much different.

But for next year I think I am going to save up and but a red dot for my gun.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      Westwind, Roger's and JR's that I know of. Not sure of the cost.

      Roughly 11inches... there were a few brave people who drove mini vans out

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      Hey all, I am looking to catch a decent perch in the 7" or bigger range and soon because in my class at school we get to taxidermy a fish and I would like to do a yellow perch, I have fished little Pulaski for 2 days and Buffalo for one and caught nothing on Buffalo lake and some bluegills and bass on little pulaski. Anyone got advice on spots in little Pulaski or Buffalo lake or just another lake near by Buffalo as well for perch? Thanks - jim
