      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 .

Pheasant Hunting North Dakota

I am looking to go pheasant hunting to ND this year. I am choosing ND over SD because I heard it is less crowded and you can hunt earlier in the day. Anybody have any ideas where there is lots of public land and a good amount of birds and not so many hunters?? I will be driving from central MN. thanks

Check out Divide County. It is in the very North west end of the state. Lots of plots land and pretty easy to get landowners permission. I have been checking that area for last couple weeks, and there are a lot of Pheasants and Grouse along the Montana and Canada border. Crops are almost all cut off now. CAJ

Go to the ND Game and Fish website and you can look at maps that show all of the public areas in the state.

Also when you buy your license they will give you a regs book and you can get a PLOTS book as well.

We go to the northwest area also. Lots of pheasants, sharptails, and some huns. The game and fish website is pretty good for finding public land and PLOTS land. If the land isnt posted you can hunt the land in N.D., but I still like to ask. All the farmers I have met out there are very friendly. Most of the time we dont see any other hunters out there besides ourselves, its a ways out there. The locals hunt on opener and very late in the season when there more bunched up.

Divide and Burke counties have very few towns and even fewer resources. Crosby had one hotel and they did not let dogs in the room.

Fill up the gas tank if you go buy a station that is open. May be closed that evening.

Finding farmers in that area can be hit or miss.

The issue with these two far NW counties is finding a place to stay that is close to hunting areas or you may end up driving 60 - 100 miles each way per day.

Camping would be easier ...

I do alot of deer hunting in Richland county which is 1 hour southwest of Fargo. I have some friends from North dakota that deer hunt with me and they are always doing very well just 30-50 miles west of the town of Leonard. They do alot of hunting from Leonard and west to Enderlin and a little further west and do very well. This year I plan on doing some bird hunting with them as they keep asking me to go with. I dont know about the chance for public hunting but after the first week or so they tell me that the locals are pretty good about letting them hunt.

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
