      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 .

wood ducks

I have a spot where there are a ton of woodies. On Saturday and Sunday we could get them to decoy in. Now they land 20-30 yards out or to the side of them. Any ideas? Tomorrow I am going to move farther down the shoreline, maybe they are spooked? I only have one dozen wood duck decoys. I put them out with a few mallards and teal. I usually put them in two different groups about 20 yards apart. Thanks...

If it isn't a big pond and its only woodies using it, just put our a couple like 3-4 dekes and shoot them when they come by. I don't think that woodies decoy the best, they have their spot and thats where they go. They are also a little gun shy if you have shot at them the last 3 days. So either put out a few or no decoys and past shoot or put out the same flock and set up outside where they are going to. Shouldn't be two hard to pick off 2.

Play the wind it changed. That is part of your problem. Also put the decoys to the side and shoot them while they turn into the decoys. Two birds? you should be done in 15min.

From my experiences hunting wood ducks, they land in almost any decoy spread you through out there. I've hunted west MN and had woodies land in diver decoys. When they decoy is when we shoot most of them.

I have no problem getting my limit every morning before school. I was just wondering what I was doing wrong to not get them to decoy into the decoys. I guess I like shooting them when they are 20 yards or closer not 50-60 witch they were landing. I just moved down the shoreline further and them come in better. I do not know why, maybe they were just leery of the other spot.

I am guessing he is saying that he has his decoys set out to approximately 20 or 30 yards and the birds are landing 20-30 yards beyond that. 50 to 60 yards is a poke. I agree with what is said above, just put out a few deeks and play the wind.
