      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 .

Paper tuning Whisker Bisquit

Recommended Posts

Made a last minute decision to throw a whisker bisquit on my bow this week-end and am having a terrible time tuning it. I've got terrible horizontal flutter and no matter how much I'm moving in my rest it's making no differance.Any help would be appreciated.I hate to have to take it in at this point of the year.

I would take the whisker biscuit off and get a new rest, that will solve your problem right there. Nap makes one like it, but it has room for clearance of the vanes. Whisker biscuits aren't the easiest to tune. or the most accurate.

Dont sell the Bicuit short. it has quite a few benifits the most being, your arrow will NEVER fall out while hunting. I can shoot mine, Quite accurate, at 50 yds.

What type of bow do you shoot?

better yet take a couple pictures of it in your hand from severale angles and someone here will tell you what needs to be fixed!

tilting the biscuit forward until it barely touches the top of you arrow can help too.

I would definately not recommend tilting the biscuit to touch the top of the arrow. It may be working for you but I'd be willing to bet it's covering up for another set up issue. The more things you have touching your arrow the more likely you are to have problems. We have set up hundreds of biscuits and never have problems when they are set up properly according to the manufacturers instructions.

whisker biscuits don't allow fletching to pass through, like most people think. they force the fletching to collapse in order to go through. thats why in time you will notice fletching starting to wrinkle and look all crumpled up. blazers are about the worst to shoot through a biscuit, as they are taller. feathers are easier to collapse and therefore work the best through a biscuit. as odd as it sounds, try shooting a fletchless arrow through a biscuit. it worked for a buddy of mine, until he upgraded his bow, then went fall away rest with blazers, the same i've got, and has worked the best for me.

I haven't had problems. Vanes are working for me, but there is some fletching wear as part of the tradeoff. I touch mine up and do some replacements.

You don't want the fit around the arrow shaft to be too tight. That could be a problem.

Also, remember that main vane must go to the top so it isn't going through the stiff black bristles. Watch how your screw in nocks and fletching lines up.

Hope this helps.

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
