      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 .

How may decoys does everyone typically set out? Over the last two weekends, we have had roughly 5 dozen setup. Typically we setup some sort of "J" pattern. We have had many flocks fly over, however we are having trouble getting them to come in. Are we using too many decoys?

Also, does everyone use calls all the time? Of our group there are only two decent callers, but not great. Even though they are not the best, do you think they should still call all the time or not?

Thanks

If you are on water the geese do not call much at all. If in the field the more you call the more they respond.

Right now they are still in their family groups from the Spring so if I was going to put out that many decoys I would leave some space and group them a bit. At least then the flocks can see it is locals and might come in to see what their buddies have found to eat.

Put out some family groups and make sure to set up with the wind... i try to stay away from patterns until later season when its just a massive group with a u shape with the x in the opening making very sure to use the wind. Secondly you said the guys that call are almost good? I have thought i was almost good for a long time and i have learned more and more buying all these 150 dollar calls and i still think i am almost good at calling... if these guys really dont sound like geese or something have them do the stuff that does sound like a goose and try varying the usage of the calling...Also i spend ALOT of time camoing my blind up to the last detail where can't see hardly any of the khaki color from my blind and it looks exactly like the field i am in...
