      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 .

Hunted near Hutchinson this morning and was greeted with a nice flight of birds. Lots of large flocks of mallards, a few cans, bluebills, ringers, and widgeons. It seemed like they were just moving into the area today ahead of this small cold front and strong north wind. Shot five birds and lost 1; 3 greenheads (1 lost), 1 can, 1 ringer, 1 widgeon. Hunted on Tuesday and didn't hardly see a duck so these are definetly new birds within the last day or so.

Recommendations: lots of duck decoys (2 dozen or more mallard blocks mixed with diver dekes), very little calling, if you use goose decoys make sure they are away from the approach/landing zone as the birds that were working would avoid approaching over the heads of the honker floaters, and finally, don't forget to call in sick to work the rest of the week grin.gif!

Man I love this time of year! Good luck to all, the migration is on!!!

Hunting Isanti county this weekend and was also pleased. One short of a limit on Sat and got er dun on Sunday. Shot my first Can nice one too...but not nice enough for the wall unfortunately. mixed bag of gwt, bwt, mally, ringers, pintail, widgeon and that can...sweet. Saw lots of birds and higher flocks yesterday too..so I do think we have a little migration going. Both days if we would have shot a little better we would have been driving home with limits no later than two hours after legal shooting time. But then I wouldn't have shot my can...he was the last one for my limit. Funny how it works out sometimes. Really wish I could afford a day off this week. frown.gif

Ironman,

I'm curious if you'd be willing to help out a person. I've been looking for a place to take the kids in Isanti and haven't really seen much. Any tips??? Thanks...

get ready for the standard reply. I dont feel the need to get specific as this spot is fairly well known...although I was pleasently suprised that it wasn't as crowded as usual. However it is a public spot..so with a good map and some drive time...I'm sure you'll find it or another decent spot. I'd love to help more but its the nature of the beast.
