      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

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.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.

      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.

      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"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
