      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 .

Deer Reports

Recommended Posts

Well how did everybody do on opener? Our party managed one spike shot by THE WIFE again this year. Her stand is awsome and she also had 2 stare downs but now shot. I thought I was going to be run over by a herd yesterday heading up the valley behind me so I jumped up and grabed the gun and then they turned before they hit the top of the ridge. About 10 min passed and my heart slowed down a guy south of me shot. I would guess it was a buck chassing a doe, but I will never know, beause I didn't see them, just heard them running.

The deer were not moving south of Northome except for the first 2 hours in the am. If you were not in a funnel area where they went from feeding to bed, you didn't see anything. That is for our party at least. The full moon didn't help at all. Lots of tracks left from the night before right over mine! shocked.gif

Keep us posted on the success.

Woodman: We went two for three this year. I was hoping my son would get a deer, but no luck. Both shot in the morning, one good size doe and I got a big buck. The buck's rack was small and broken a bit, but a nice heavy deer. I am glad we gave our area one more go. The snow on the ground really helped, we had a great hunt. Good luck if you continue the quest, we are done for the year, heading out to SD the next 2 week ends for some pheasant hunting.

This deer season for us was very successful so far. Our party of 12 shot 11 deer. 5 spikes, 4 does, 1 seven, and one 10 that was wide but not tall also weighed over 200 lbs. Many hunters are still at it however with management tags to fill as well as a few regular licenses.

Myself I didn't see a deer all weekend. Last years 12 pointer I shot is punishing me and not allowing me to get one. frown.gif I have a few more weekends to get up there and try again.

Good luck

Congrats to Tiff..again!!! How's your dad doing? The hunters here are looking forward to the cooler weather..today was near 60 degrees (slight cool down with Friday suppose to only be in the mid 30's, and tomorrow we're back to the mid 20's for the nightly lows). But there are several does hanging in the shack, have seen a couple of spike, one 6 pointer that had an absolute perfect rack. Still plenty of hunting time left, so good luck to everyone!

Dad, Ashley(Neice), and I have not seen a deer. Mom and dad are heading to Williston, ND for dad's sisters 50th wedding aniv. this weekend. I will be up hunting solo for sat and sunday. Hopefully this head cold will go away by then. Maybe I just need LOTS of fresh air to clear it up! grin.gif

Good luck out there and be safe.

Had a decent 4 day hunt. I managed to see lots of does, a few mature one's, more yearlings, and a good number of fawns. I saw 3 bucks, a nice wide 10 point that in the rain and fog on Tuesday night got out of sight too quickly, but a couple nice 2-3 year old bucks. I managed to get a nice mature doe and a nice 2 1/2 yr old buck with very small 5 pt basket rack. Seemed like the chasing was just starting for the most part. I saw the bucks between 4:30-5:30 in the afternoons, the does were spotted from 7-11am and then again from 3 - 5:30pm. Good luck to everyone and be safe out there.

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.

      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update

      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there.

      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious
