      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 .

MEA weekend

Recommended Posts

nine-tiner

To all pheasant hunters out this weekend with the added numbers of hunters, please remind everyone of basic safety when out in the field. Make sure if you have posters at the end of standing corn or other areas that all shots are well above the horizon. I was out this past weekend and got "peppered" nothing serious thanks to heavy clothing and distance, but just the same.

Shoot straight, shoot safe and enjoy the weekend. It is a great time to take a youth out hunting.

Here is some more good advice. If the land is posted, and you don't own it or lease it....DON'T go on it. I am so sick of finding people on our land. We have gotten the police, DNR and everyone else involved. We have 340 acres of CRP land that boarders a waterfowl production area. Opening weekend 8 people were on our land and had started before 9am might I add. The land is posted every 50 yards, so I know they couldn't have missed that. Again this weekend we brought out 2 guests, and we kept finding dead birds on our property. They were filled with shot. Someone had obviously shot a bunch of birds and left them there. I don't get it. Why do people think that is ok? Any suggestions? By the way, we limited out in 2 hours with 5 guys this weekend. Not bad after we found 3 dead birds that had been shot in the last couple days.

Could the dead birds be from the WPA. Meaning somebody shot them on the WPA and they didn't die unitl they were on your land. A wounded rooster can go a long way before he expires.

I'll second the idea of wounded birds making it a long distance before they expire. I've rocked three birds already this year that have managed to continue flying well over 200 yards, I broke a leg on two of them as well. Since I haven't found any of these, I'd like to think they made it, but it certainly isn't likely.

It was pretty darn incriminating when we also found the shells on the property. No one in our group shoots Federal.

      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.

      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!
