      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 .

HEre are the pics of the ones i found the last 4 days. Its getting easier to find them with all the snow melting, the fisrt two i found were buried, but the last two were not. 3 were nice all scoring over 50 inches while the 8 point had a 22 inch main beam, biggest so far this year. I have my eyes on a big one as well. 3 years and no look, hoping this year will be the one! Post some pics when you guys find some!! good luck

Hey, nice find.

Jr and I went out after supper. 15 minutes into the walk I find a big set from a ten pointer. I'd would've grabbed them but they were still attached to the deer. We watched him and 2 smaller bucks along with a few does out in the field for 10 minutes.

Wow. still haven't dropped yet huh? They are weird that way I talked to some guys who had found fresh sheds back in December!! I have noticed that in SUperior down by the tracks they seem to be the last ones to drop, and they usually are done the first week in march. I was back there last week and probably saw 100 deer and all were baldies so they are done there, the 10 pt you saw should be any day now, keep on his tail and youll find em. Ill be out hard core this weekend, supposed to be real nice out so, we will see how it pans out!!

Went out by midwest energy for about an hour or so, didnt find a thing, definitely deer there, but no sheds. Must have dropped somewhere else, probably by the tracks. I picked through the woods pretty thoroghly. I have been behiund simko too for a few hours, saw nearly 100 deer, but again no antlers, either Im too late, someone beat me to them, or they just dropped somewhere else. I did find my 5th shed though after i left midwest energy. I went to the spot i found my 2nd shed, and literally less than 3 minutes into my search, there it was, right in front of me!! REAL small one this time, only 2 points, but ill be counting on the next hand when i find the next one, a sheds a shed. Ill be out again this afternoon, good luck everyone, keep me posted.

I think the city deer sometimes hold onto them forever because they have little to no stress on them during the winter. But when i say later, i would mean late January, February, not the end of March!

I went out for the longest i have ever been out looking today. 1230 until 630. I found 2 more sheds, nothing spectacular by any means, but to more to the tally. One was last years shed, don't know it lasted so long, but I will post the pics of my latest sheds. I also found a small one last night too, about two minutes into my walk. Up to seven now in 10 times out, and in 12 days. found the 1st one on march 13, up to seven. Cant complain. I was out with a high school classmate, recently discovered he lives here now. Also he has a book out on shed hunting. Its really helpful. I read it about a month and a half ago. Prior to this year, i had about 13 sheds total, spanning 7 years, and this year im up to 7 already. I reccomend checking it out. He also found one this afternoon with me. Ironically enough his name is joe shead !! haha check it out, its been working for me.

I have a friend that feeds deer and he has 2 big eight pointers that have been coming in since fall. One dropped his antlers at the end of November and the other one still is hanging on to them. You just never know

Told myself i was going to take the day off today after walking so long yesterday, but I decided to venture out in the rain! I found my first match of the year, probably only one as well, but they were about 1 foot apart from one another, gotta love when that happens, too bad it was a little guy. A 6 point with a broken point at the end of the main beam. Its been 8 years since i found more than one shed in a day, now its happened two days in a row!!

heres a pic of my new matched set along with the rest of them from this year, 9 so far. the black writing on the bottom of the base is how I date them. I dont know why i do it, but when i found my first shed i dated it, and i have just contiunued on doing it to every one i find.

took the beautiful day off yesterday from shed hunting, but found my way back into the woods this afternoon. I found another matched set, small 8 pointer, and a nice 4 point shed, with a g2 that reaches over 11 inches. Thought it could be a match to a similar size right side last week, but after putting them side by side, definitely not the same deer. 7 sheds in the last 3 days with 2 matched sets, and 12 sheds in 12 trips thus far.

Continued my new exercise plan again tonight. I walked for about 3 more hours. I was in a new area of woods that I was not familiar with but was still able to find one little guy, heres the pic. I know im not the only one finding sheds, start posting some pics of all your finds!! I have 14 sheds now in the past two weeks, so if im finding em, other people have to be as well, and only 2 matched sets, so i have a lot of sides out there to be found, including ALL my big ones!!

Here's half a ten-pointer I found in the back yard at the edge of the woods/brush yesterday. We feed birds all year around in our back yard, which turns to woods that runs down to Shagawa Lake, and the deer come in all winter to help themselves. This fella had the biggest rack of the bunch, though it's not that big. Nice proportions, just not much spread, about to the edge of his ears.

My wife, who is always out searching for sheds in the woods around the house, was some pi$$ed that I just ambled out and picked this right up and brought it back to the house yesterday. grin.gif

That one was worth bending over for to pick up and I'll bet you couldn't wait to show Lisa. Next year it'll be a little bigger.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

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