      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 .

Around Blackduck

Pretty decent weekend in the Blackduck area. Had just a few out fishing over the weekend and they are finding the fall bite has been pretty good with a variety of fish being caught, sunnies, walleye and a few pike. For those out hitting the woods, the grouse reports have varied from group to group. The stronger winds mid week had the grouse hanging pretty tight to the pines, and many of the hunters I talked to said that they were a little further out in the woods than they normally go but that's where they were finding them (the fourwheel activity pushed them back further from the trails), but still decent numbers coming through the cleaning shack. Just a few bow hunters up, with does coming through, haven't heard of the thirty pointer being spotted yet.

Right now looking at the forecast doesn't look like we're gong to be having snow for opener. It was in the forecast for this past Saturday, but that didn't happen, and now they have a 40% chance for Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, and a slight chance for Friday night, with the temps predicted in the mid 40's for the highs and 20's for the lows over the weekend. Good luck to everyone hunting this weekend!

Just wanted to say good luck to all hunters heading out. Looks temps in the mid 40's for the highs and 20's for the lows for the weekend, then the early part of next week 30's for the highs. Only showing a slight chance of snow showers tonight, then not again until Monday night.

Hope everyone had a good start to hunting over the weekend. In the deer shack there's currently 13 deer hanging and had another group that left their six out, so not bad for the first couple of days. But did have one young hunter who had never gone deer hunting before and he shot a nice doe the first day out...he's now hooked!

Here is what my dad harvested over the weekend. The big one got away, but this one came in to the call the next afternoon.

      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.

      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.
