      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 .

What does this mean on your goose call.

It just means a more hollow, realistic sound to your call.

Best I can understand is that after blowing a call for a long time, the reed starts to get worn down a little bit and your call will start to sound a little different, most of the time for the better.

It takes a really long time to get the reed broken in so some of the call makers are selling "guts" that have essentially been broken in already.

You can get the sound of a call that is been used for awhile right out of the box.

If you have a goose call you can see how worn in by lifting up the reed and looking at the tone channels on the guts. As a call gets warn in the reed with create an impression in the guts. This allows the reed to travel deeper into the tone channel and also travel with less resistance. Worn in guts will usually give you a more "goosey" sound. Mellower and more responsive. I can sound way more realistic on worn in guts than I can with a call right out of the box.

Tim Grounds just came out with the Triple Crown guts that are exact replicas of the guts that Kelly Powers has been blowing for years in competitions. The are $50 just for the guts so they are a little spendy. I have a set in a Pro Super Magnum and they do sound awesome.

Some guts wear in faster than others. Jeff Foiles switched to his "green guts" a few years ago because they wear in faster. I have a Strait Meat Honker that is the best sounding call that I have that is worn in perfectly. GK calls also has some guts that wear in rather quickly. The best thing to do is just blow, blow, and keep blowing until your guts start wearing in and you will notice a different sound. So should the geese grin.gif

as you blow a short reed, the reed actually wears the sides of the tone channel as it vibrates up and down, in and out of the channel, Changing the sound, it gives the call more versatility over time. many methods have been tried to do this without blowing the call for a few years, like hooking them up to vaccums and such, but really you can't do it as well as you can just by blowing them. I make alot of calls as a hobby buisiness, and love to help guys out.. just ask!

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
