      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 .

Our roost site is a small patch of oaks with lots of horizontal limbs sitting on the top of a large ridge. Or...is it several tall white pines on a creek bend?

I didn't fell much like gobbling this morning smirk.gif

Well boys... what started as an incredible morning turned sour upon my release. Had my new new video cam running and would've had some amazing audio had I turned the mic on. Novice mistake. Lesson well learned. Well at 625 a Tom came in to 10 yards but behind the blind in brush and wouldn't commit to the decoy. 5 min later I called in a hen and she was mad! We exchanged slurs back and forth and finally Vtttt Dooommmmm Vttt Dooommmm I see his softball head bobbin through the brush and he struts right up to my decoy 10 yds away. Video rolling. He's standing full strut by my decoy. I release an arrow through the mesh. And now I sit with two wing feathers to show for it... I practiced shooting last night and the last arrow I shot was with my guillotine which requires me to adjust my slider to 30. Well I forgot to change it back... Another lesson learned. I replayed the video slomo and watched my arrow hit... no damage done. Actually he walked off 10 yds and fanned out again at a real hen. I wasn't able to get another shot. I was sick after realizing where my arrow went and finding out I had no audio for the morning. I'll probably head out again this afternoon and see what happens... Don't count me out just yet.

Glad to hear you had some action! If a guy doesn't have stories like that then he hasn't hunted much. Stick with it - put us on the board dude!

You should try entering the feathers for the contest! grin.gif

it's been tough since opening morning... i've called in hens but can't get any beards to come in. it's been real windy all week making if difficult to hear/call. this morning i sat through a terrential rain and lightning storm... supprisingly enough the birds still gobbled during the thunderclaps but had hens and went the other way. i tried a hot tip on a brute yesterday morning right after flydown but he didn't show. last night i tried a hot roosting spot... but that didn't pan out either. lots of oaks around and they alternate spots weather dependant. i'm going to head to a new property this afternoon if this rain lets up and give it a whirl. gettin down to the wire now... i'll keep ya updated.

Well guys... after 5 days of hitting it hard and lots of blown opportunities I came up short in the end. I released a few arrows but the mn hex continues for me. Even though I didn't harvest a bird it was still very successful. Best of luck to the rest of you on your upcoming hunts and may the turkey gods be on your side. Would someone please kill a turkey!

      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

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September
    • proguide
      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.

      get a guide for a day
