      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 .

I really enjoyed all the discussion, stories, pictures and even the ribbing that went on. Congrats to everone who was able to get out and hunt these great birds. It actaully was pretty close. Several teams were one nice bird away from first place. To those who won prizes please send me your mailing address at jeffonthewater@aol.com . I'll be heading out of town so the prizes probably won't go out until the first week in July.

Thanks everyone for the great time!

This year's contest was a success, due in large part to all of the hard work Borch has put into organizing such a fine event. Furthermore, he made some pretty good looking calls for prizes that I'm dying to get my hands on. Thanks for all the hard work Borch!

I'd also like to thank Chris Walls, owner of Wall's Calls - http://www.wallscalls.com/ for his support of the contest. Chris not only makes calls that look good, his slates (I own two!) are the softest, most versatile, and most realistic pot/striker calls I've had the pleasure of using. As I continually work to rid myself of extra calls and accessories while turkey hunting, these calls rode in my vest all season long. Thanks Chris!!!

Last but not least, thanks to all who participated. I learned quite a bit from our collective experiences, as every turkey hunt contains some nugget of turkey wisdom. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for putting on a great contest. I guess the Turkey Trash Talkers need to eat some crow (when crow season starts).

Well done for everyone who harvested a bird - congradulations!

Congradulations to Team 4 and everyone that scored a bird this season.

Success should not always be measured in the harviest. It's what you learn from each hunt and what you can add to your bag of tricks for the next one.

This was a lot of fun and I learned so much from everyone.(Thank you jnelson)

Thank you CW and Borch for donating the calls. They look great. I guess I will have to contact CW Calls grin.gif.

To next season, happy hunting and straight shooting.

Way to go my fellow teammates on Team 4. Thanks for picking my and Dietz "slack". LOL As I posted earlier, this was my first season after longbeards and I had an absolute BLAST!!! I'm an avid bowhunter and definitely had my chances this spring. I'm just glad that my calling was effective, especially being I don't have a mentor, except for all the guys here on the Turkey forum. I'm already looking forward to next spring!!!

Congrats as well to everyone who entered regardless of whether you killed or not. Specially my fellow team mates. When the contest was first mentioned I simply thought it would be a entertaining way to compete against those in my (original) home state. I doubt that I'll ever have another chance to have a bird like mine respond and saunter in to my pleading calls. Good news is that his gentics are on and around the wonderful piece of private property that I have the exclusive priveledge to hunt.

Now it's on to more bass tournaments. Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer.

Thanks to everyone that particapated. This was greatest time sharing, ribbing, and the hunt stories were awsome to say the least. it also feels like a sucessful hunt without even getting a bird.

A special thanks to borsh and all the guys that put this together and of course the guys that donated the prizes.

Can't wait til the next turkey season.

Congrats to the winning team and also all who were skilled enough to harvest a real trophy.

I wish my bow would have been finished so I could have went out. Oh well, theres always next season if picked.

For the ones that didnt harvest a bird, I'm sure it was a learning experience and there is always next season. Its just fun to get out into the outdoors.

Thanks to all who helped put this on. Nice job.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      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
