      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 .

evening hunts?

Recommended Posts

i never have really evening duck hunted, always in the morning. Now with the first week over i was thinking about trying it out this afternoon. I was just wondering how much success can be had in the evening hunts? Is it worth it?

I have had huge success with geese in the afternoon. I have shot a few ducks also. I prefer morning hunting. Yet you can still have a awesome evening hunt too.

The best part of evening hunting, in my experience, is watching the birds come in after legal quitting time. You get a glimpse of what dreams are made of.

Successful evenings for me typically have been when ice or other weather during migration are going on. some terrific b'bill shoots in spitting weather and it so dark you could see the muzzle blasts!

That was cool...

I agree on that one. If the weather is really nice out. They probably won't fly until that last few minutes before dark. Which you can't hunt anyways. When the weather sucks. Thats when you want to hunt. Even in the morning I love waiking up to rain, when I am going duck hunting.

If you can find a field that the ducks are feeding in

and get permision to hunt it, you can have a pretty good afternoon shoot. If you can, just follow the ducks off a lake the afternoon before you hunt and see where they go. The tricky part can be finding the right person to get permision from. Just set up in the field the next day as long as the wind is somewhat the same and the birds should feed there again.

ten four fellas. yeah it wasnt so bad this afternoon. deffinately right after shooting time was over we must of saw 80-100 wood ducks, a few flocks of mallards, and teal burning us left and right. If we would of had 30 more minutes or 15 minutes and good shooting we would of had a nice limit apiece.

My experience is the fun happens after hours. Case the guns and crack a cold one...with the rain today (monday) I may get lucky.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
