      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 .

Zink vs. Foiles

Recommended Posts

Death row calls

They are out of theif river Mn. They make a dandy call!

zink and foils make good calls. I have numerous of both. I still use them, and still like them.

I have 5 foiles calls on my lanyard and I am not a field staffer for them....yet. IMO while you really can't go wrong with any of these, all these calls sound great, Foiles puts out the most volume and best sounds with the least amount of airflow.

Although I do have to say I'm intrigued by Death Row. I've heard some good things about them and I'm all about supporting a MN compnany, are their calls at Cabelas?

Cory does not have them at Cabela's, I do not know if he will soon though. Macks PW sells them. Most are bought straight from him, shows or on the internet though.

Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't Scheels carry them?

id either say DRC or CnS calls. i have CnS calls and have really liked the sound they put out. They are out of Zumbrota Mn and are all custom and cheaper then the other big guys calls. He hand lathes every call so they all have there special little features.

Calls do not kill geese. It has more to do with your spread/set-up in my opinion, and early season birds are alot less talkative than middle to late season birds. "Just simple clucking will do you just fine in most situations". That has been my experience, and those are the words out of Jeff Foiles mouth: Game Fair seminar 2009.

100% agree. Especially in early season; haven't had to make a noise on well over half the flocks I've had decoy so far this year.

I do prefer foiles over zink for goose calls by a long shot. The PH-2/1 takes the cake when it comes to duck calls though.

Weren't we talking about which calls one other preferred- Foiles or Zink?

I disagree...what if you ran traffic? You see a flock of geese 200 yds away heading to their feeding field and you start calling and flagging to get them to commit your spread. It works. I believe calling plays a big role as a good spread of dekes. These are my experiences.

Maybe it has to do with the pressure of hunting in the area? Good luck on Saturday fellas! Post some pics.

Perfectly put. You shouldn't need a goose call when you are in the field the birds are headed too. But when you are not, it's going to be long day of watching birds fly by if you can't make your short reed sing.

I know that Scheels carried the Life Sentence by DRC last year but I haven't seen them around at all this season. I second DRC very nice call, especially for the money.

    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!  
    • Utube Randy Newberg spring bear hunts. He has a ton of DIY info on spring bear hunting
    • I've never used electric jacks, or hydro. I've heard they are pretty nice, and guys like them. It will be interesting to see how you feel about them after a season or two. I'd like to hear your input on them after you've used them awhile.
    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
