      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 .

We are up on Lake Vermilion and ended up with 6 for the morning. Shot 3 out of a group of 30 ringbills, a drake woodie, and then 2 more ringbills out of a group of 15... I was surprised to see all the ducks. Lots of educated local mallards that don't want anything to do with the decoys... Good Luck tomorrow...

Limits last three days, but Geese were shy today. They are starting to favor the open water already. I would suggest a main point and 3-4 dozen goose decoys. Two large lines one 20 yards to your left and the other line 50 yards to your right. wind in your face. The ducks should come right down the pocket and bank at about 20 yards in your face or come over the rushes to land in the pocket. Look at what spots will work for this setup and hang on. The stronger the wind the better.

We hunted by St.Cloud, and there were not nearly the geese flying around as Saturday. There were more ducks flying but for whatever reason, the geese were not there. O well, still managed a few.

Sunday's hunt for us was night & day different from Saturday, this would be in NW MN.

Saturday... we had wind from the south, 30+ mph, partly cloudy skies, just an awefully windy day to be out, but the birds were working and worked great! Saw lots of mallards and capitalized on that. Geese were few and far between but took advantage of the one flock of 6 that did come in while we were packing up. grin.gif

Sunday... Wind switched to the west and there was thunder, lightning, and rain when we were loading up to head to the slough. We hoped that it passed by and it did. The rain stopped when we arrived and we headed out to set up. First half hour, we saw plenty of small Ring-Neck flocks but they were all high and moving. We had to switch to the other side of this slough which really hurt the action on mallards, they prefer the south side due to the proximity of small potholes right behind the point we hunt. After the first hour or so, the low(er) flying flocks kept creeping skyward until all we did was watch passing flocks of birds. Goose activity on Sunday was very interesting however... lots and lots of singles, pairs, and very small flocks kept passing near but we couldn't get them to move our way. Oh well... still working on the calling. grin.gif
