      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 .

Hoyt Vectrix

Just wondering if anybody owns or has shot the Vectrix. I'm going to see if I can shoot one this Saturday, and eventually I may purchase one. I own a Hoyt now and love it, but I want to upgrade before Turkey season opens.

My brother owns one, I've shot three or four of them. They're really sweet! In my opinion the Vectrix and the new bowtech bows are the cream of the crop right now. Yes, yes, I know it all depends on what fits you well-- but man... I don't know how anyone wouldn't agree. That being said, the price tag that accompanies these bows is also something to behold!

My husband and I each ordered a Vectrix in January and are getting them next weekend. All I can say is they are one heck of an awesome bow. I'm going nuts waiting to get them! If you can get the opportunity to shoot one, do it, you will not be disappointed. I see you live in Hill City. Please take the time to drive up to Itasca Archery by Grand Rapids. This is in our opinion the best place to buy a bow and anything else you want pertaining to archery. You will get a good price, but more so Gary will spend time with you making sure you are set up right. I believe he also does any work on the bow for life and will not charge you for it if you buy from him. He has been # 1 in the state for sales of Hoyt bows. Let us know if you check out a bow there. Tell him Ryan and Brenda sent you. My husband Ryan is on the Hoyt shooter team and we try to promote Itasca Archery all that we can. Good luck.

I shot the Vectrix at Scheels a couple days ago, and it is true that its really nice. However, I don't think its that much nicer than my Hoyt Vtec. I know that is just my opinion, but if you see an older Hoyt with a package, check it out.

Plus, if you get a Vectrix, make sure to check out the Bowtech Guardians because there sure is a lot of hype about them. Just make an informed decision, then you won't have any regrets.

Hey fishtrapgirl I saw you and your husbands bows today, they look great. Gary let me shoot his Vectrix and I cant beleive how smoothe they are. My brother came with and had no plans of buying a new bow, but he shot it to and the bow sold itself, now Gary will be selling two. To anybody thinking of buying the Vectrix dont hesitate it is a great bow and Hoyt is getting swamped with orders. It is the bow of the year in my opinion.

Hey surewood good choice. Hoyt this year has made and awsome line. I own the 38 pro for my target bow and love it. The vectrix is a good bow but if you want speed in it also look at the vulcan. It is really nice and very quiet. Both the bows are about the same price. So if you are able to shoot both of them do so. Well good luck buyin!!!

The Vulcan is a nice looking bow that gets its speed from the short brace height, which makes it very unforgiving. I personally would sacrafice the 9 feet per second difference and get the vectrix. Just my opinion.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
