      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 .

Slow weekend

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

Went out gun hunting and it was pretty slow. Most people in the Perham and Hawley areas found this to be the case. Full moon an warm temps did not help.

Shot a doe Sunday morning -- that was the only deer I saw on Saturday and Sunday.

Funny -- I sat in my truck on Friday night and watched a really nice buck heard his two does back into the woods. I was about 300 yards away and he was really nice. REALLY NICE. I saw a ton of white above his head. There were a lot of nice scrapes and rubs in that area.

He came out for about 15 seconds at 5:10p.m. I wish I had my bow and would have been sitting right there. Oh, well. Coulda-shoulda-woulda.

That was a dandy. So far nobody has reported getting him in our area. Going back next weekend for another try.

Bowhunted Saturday and Sunday. Saw four does running by very quickly. Would not have mattered if I had my 870 as I will not take a running shot in our hunting situation. No one within miles fired a shot either day. But Saturday night I counted 17 deer of all makes and sizes in the alfalfa field at 9 pm when we went out. Jerks. tongue.gif

Was very slow where we were also(Itasca State Park). Heard minimal shots and I didn't see a single deer. My cousin is the only one that got a deer and it was the only deer seen by our party. frown.gif

We seen some deer this weekend. My dad seen 1 doe, 2 fawns and a spike on stand sat. morning. I seen a doe and 2 fawns sat. night. Sunday morning I seen 4 more deer and shot a real nice doe, double lung at about 100 yards. My uncle seen a couple sunday morning and 5 on sunday night. One of my cousins seen 7 deer on saturday morning.

Overall we seen some deer but we were talking and think that the deer numbers are way down in our area. Most of the corn is out and we still don't see the numbers we did in past years.

I'm so glad opther people are saying it was slow. We had 8 people hunt hard all day Saturday and Sunday on 90 acres of private land just south of Hibbing. Zero deer shot and only 1 doe seen. I am in a state of shock over that. Lots of sign and no sightings. I honestly was starting to think our land was sabatoged.

It is the full moon. Other than deer being pushed by hunters driving the deer, there is absolutely no reason for the deer to move during the day. The rut is not in full swing yet (at least in the southern half of the state - and at least not enough to make bucks run around during the day). I have an all-season license and I decided to stay home and play with the baby once I saw the moon.

Another thing is roadkill. I drove from St. Cloud to the Twin Cities on Saturday morning. I only saw 2 roadkill deer. If the rut was going, it would seem like there should be a lot more.

      What did you and Wanderer find for ice thicknesses at the lakes you were on?
    • Rick G
      Sorry for no more live updates. Got too busy fishing...lol Pretty decent morning bite, slow afternoon, followed up by a very good evening bite. Plenty of noce fish caught if you worked for them. 
    • eyeguy 54
      fun day for sure.   good to see those that popped up. get that eye pic up rick! Thx Moose for starting us out in a good area and for lining it up.

      Looks like you had a better bite than I did. I really didn’t expect all my gear to be that bad hand pulling out.  Big time failure on my part to not bring my wheeler.  I have too much of a spearing Jones to have left it all back at the truck. I brought a few gills, a seed, a crappie and a 25 inch walleye home.  Biggest gill went 8.  I went through a half dozen heavy pike suckers on the tip up but never dropped the spear.  Only saw one 20 incher that never really got in the hole.  The walleye inhaled the sucker and got the hooks in the throat. Glad you guys got some nice ones!
