      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 .

Need some help....

The wife and I are looking for a weekend rooster hunt in S. Dakota as a 25th wedding aniversary gift to ourselves(she's a special gal). Were thinking the weekend of Nov. 3/4 (deer opener in Minnesota). Would like to go somewhere that has pointing dogs to help improve our chances of hitting some birds. I would appreciate any suggestions on where we might go to have a nice relaxing getaway.

Just as a starter I would contact the sponser for this very forum. UGuide SD. They have a banner ad to click on below the pheasant,grouse,dove line. They've been around here for more than a year and have gotten some great reviews. They've been posting lots of info about the SD scene lately too. Also check the resort locator at the top of the page for other suggestions.

Personally, I'd just Google "pheasant hunt in South Dakota" and stand back. You'll get a flood of stuff BUT look for a WELL KNOWN outfit that has been there a while, with proper housing, seasoned guides and lots of land. Don't snap at the first one. There are some dandy FIRST CLASS places out there operated by some HIGH CLASS folks. Sniff 'em out and have a hunt you can remember. Lotsa fun. wink.gif

One thing to REALLY consider is whether you will be hunting wild birds or released birds. Depending on your wants, this can really be different hunting. A vendor brought me to a lodge (Rock Creek) last year which advertised wild birds and they were not at all. As I am a diehard, I was dissapointed in how easy it was. However, if you are not into really working for your birds, this might offer the best scenario for you. Rock Creek (just outside Mitchell) was a first class organization, great lodging, food, etc and you will get plenty of close shots behind their brittanys. If you want the really good service, be prepared to pay top $. Thunderstick is a mint-on-your-pillow type place, but the hunting is fantastic. As a 25th Anniv present, that may be something you like. Both of those places I have personally been and you will get plenty of close in shooting, but both are released birds. If you are casual hunters, you may not know the difference. If you want further info on either place, let me know.

      Lots of birds kept spots open and the snow covered them now. It’s dangerous if you just rush out. Take your time if you are going to Ann lake or Lori or any in that area.  This my stomping grounds and there only one lake I would fish in the area

      Fished from 0815-1230 today out from McKinley out to 26 FOW. Found about 10.75 inches good ice with snow cover varying from 2 inches up to close to a foot in the soft drifts but still not too bad for hiking while dragging the flip over. Had decent action from 0830-0930 bringing up 8 walleyes less than 12 inches long, a 12 inch perch and 2 tullibees all released. About 50-50 on set line vs glow jigging spoon both with chubs. Not sure why I couldn't connect on better quality fish. Still a nice morning with the snow lightly falling and peaks of sun. Good running into you, Cliff! Hopefully we'll cross paths again this winter.

      I may make it over to Elysian, Francis, or Tetonka this Saturday. Depends what I find on the Mississippi tomorrow afternoon. From what I have heard the ice on the backwaters around Winona and La Crosse may actually be in better shape than that around Waseca and Faribault, which is kind of odd for early ice. Usually the south-central MN lakes freeze up just a bit quicker.

      I'd be surprised if there were much good ice on Bartlett this weekend--that deep water with a bit of current takes a while to freeze--but I may go out and take a look anyway tomorrow when I am up in the area getting my first ice fix of the year in. Anyone got any early ice reports for the Mississippi backwaters around Winona and Lacrosse? I'll be adding mine tomorrow night.
