      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 .

Dogs for Pheasant Opener

Recommended Posts

gonefishin11

There was a post about which dogs would be out duck hunting so I thought I would start a post about dogs going for pheasant opener.

I have a chocolate lab that is almost 2. It will be her second year. Last year we hunted 3 or 4 times a week in ND so I am hoping that experience carries over to opener this year.

Here is my favorite pic from last year:

Nice pic. My Golden is a great pheasant dog as well. I used to love my dad's pointers but I love the way my Golden goes in after them! There is much to be said for a good flushing dog. I would die for a picture like that of her. I am sure your dog will only get better. It is amazing at what they will learn. My Golden is now six. Compared to her first couple years she sure has things figured out. If you liked what your dog did last year you have things coming!

kinda off topic but is it alright to hunt a lab thats being trained to retieve and also work it on pheasants? He's already somewhat trained to "hunt" for blind retrieves, but he's not trained to quarter. Just wondering if its gonna hamper with retrieving training.

My dog will be 2.5 and will be out again this year. This will be his second season and the light has really come on in his head what it's all about. Starting out next weekend near Wilmar for 3 days and then heading to North Dakota the following weekend for 4 days. I can't wait!

I took Dakota my three year old British Lab up to Royal Flush to day to get his mind off duck hunting. I think it worked. He had eight birds total. It was a good run in the rain. smile.gif

I hope to be out this Sat morning. We are expecting our second child any day now so I will have to wait and see what happens. My dog will most likely be out with or without me as my hunting buddies REALLY like to hunt with her. This will be her 5th season and she knows the game well HEre is from S. Dak last year.

This will be my Wirehaired Pointing Griffon's third season for pheasants. He really showed good progress last fall. Here is my favorite photo that I have of him so far. This was his first season at 10 months old. North Dakota limited.

Heres Rudy with his prize from 2007 Opener. Many birds pointed shooting should have been better! blush.gif

Also got into some Dove action after this photo.

Nice Matt, i was begining to wonder, we didnt get a call from you on Sat. Took Molly out today, to bad for her she had me shooting over her. She did way better than I could have thought that she would. It looks as if Digger turned out a very good day also. Congrats!!!

We had poor cell reception all weekend. Too Bad for Digger that we were shooting over him. Would have taken a lot less work. He did great though. Can't wait to go out again. grin.gif

      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.

      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.
