      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 .

Anyone Hunting ND Opener?

Recommended Posts

UGUIDE

I can't remember how long it has been since I hunted ducks but my best friend and I figure it was about 1987. This Saturday we will be in the duck blind together in Gackle North Dakota. We're hoping to take some species we have never taken before. I have some reports next week.

Anybody else heading to ND for ducks?

Hey Keeter,

thanks,

I will be hunting near Valley City with my college buddies. They already shot limits last weekend. Sometimes I wish I was on the 5-year plan instead of being done in 4...

Hunted opener out in central ND and it was a blast as always, weather was great and birds were thick. Hunted water opening morning, 3 guys limited out. Noted to not put out newer or showy decoys (cans,drake mallards) seemed to be flaring birds. Tried to find a field to hunt second day, but slept a little late for evening scouting. So the three of us split up on 3 sloughs in close proximity took a handfull of deks and figured we'd keep the birds moving, another good hunt. If ya want to shoot some new species ND is the place we shot mallards, redheads, ringnecks, teal g/b, canvasbacks. The pintails were thick, but 1 is all you get on pins,susies,and cans, and bird ID sucks right now. Can't wait to get out again, birds should be starting to color up good. Good Huntin'

Just returned from Wolford area. The hunting was great, especially if you enjoy variety. If hunting the area lakes, make sure you can identify your ducks, tons of cans and bluebills.

Just back from 3 days of hunting near Gackle. WOW! First time for all of us in ND and 1 guy was first time duck hunting. We shot 6 species and on the last day had our 20 duck limit in 1 hour. Saw pheasants and got a few sharpies too. Mallards, Teal, Widgeon, Redheads, Scaup and Shovelers. Interesting how different sloughs had different species.

Here's a pic of our setup and results on last day.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?
