      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 .

Opening day decoy spread

Recommended Posts

jwhawkridge

Everyone pumped for opening day!?! I was just wondering what everyone is planning on using for opening day for their spread? I haven't had much luck on opening day, I usually just put a large group out sitting 10-30 yards out from the shore. I only have mallard dekes, 50-50 drakes to hens. I was reading that it might be better to put a 70-30 ratio of hens to drakes. Should I use that ratio in a horseshoe? An X? Lines from the shore? I'm also thinking of putting up 1/2 a dozen goose dekes for those pesky honkers and as confidence for the ducks.

just make sure that you put in a landing zone for them a open pocket to the side or in front depending on wind. I have better luck when they are landing to the side and not looking directly at you. early season I put them out in small groups 4 -6. and leave pockets between them. I only use a couple of drakes on opener depending of what I see scouting if there are some full plumige I will use more drakes
