      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 .

Best roto-wing duck decoy?

Recommended Posts

A young nephew asked me which of the new breed of "rotor-wing" decoys is best. I told him you guys would know. How about some comments from fellas who have actually USED some of them. Thanks. grin.gif

Lucky Duck or Robo Duck are both great set up's. That being said they are not as effective as they used to be, there seem to be windows when they work well.

In our area it is right after the date they are allowed to be used and again late season specifically in areas of running water. They are also great for field hunting ducks but remember to turn them off if the geese are coing in as they flare off of them.

Good luck.

I've hunted over a Mojo and thought it worked good. Problem I have sometimes is worrying about breaking them in our canoe after it becomes confined with guns, decoys, and the dog. Now I use two wing thangs which ran me about forty bucks for both. I really have'nt noticed less success from not having a realistic body, I think the movement sucks them in and by the time they know somethings wrong their staring down the barrel of my Mossberg.

Eye balling the Mojo with the folding wings right now. Will never own another with set screw wings. Have come loose even with pliers applied. Anyone know MN regs on using the decoy with flashing LED's simulating rotation? Legal or not? Looking to add a couple wind powered to the spread. Going to get rid of my air lucky ( read as air sucky ). Let's not get this thread going towards a robo vs anti-robo thing. They work... and they don't work. Depends on the circumstances. Choosing to use the appropriate spinner depending on regulations is up to the user.

I've got a cheaper mojo that retailed for $50 but we got it for $25 with a 1/2 off coupon for Gander a few years back.

Just got two wing magic dekes which you operate with a jerk cord and am looking forward to seeing them in action this fall. They have flashing wings and move the water.

I got a mojo and it works fine. But like Big Drift said, when field hunting and geese approaching, take it down. I dont know about the water, I field hunt entirly exept for opening duck which you cannot use the mojo anyway ( right?) wink.gif

And motorized spinning wing dekes are legal after the second weekend? Is that correct?
