      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 .

Sportdog 1850

Does anyone have any experience with this collar? I was just reading about it in the new Pointing Dog Journal and it looks pretty nice. Does anyone have any experience with the built in hawk call that's supposed to stop running birds? Does it sound authentic?

Sorry...I don't have any experience with the beeper, but I have owned the Sportdog 1800 for 3 years now and it has worked flawlessly. I've been very happy with it and will definitely buy another when the time comes. I'd be interested in hearing if the hawk call works myself.

No experience with Sportdog collars but don't concern yourself with the hawk call. It's overrated. Very few people I've run across actually think it makes a difference. The best way to stop running birds is to approach them as quietly as possible.

I also have the 1800. The first one I got was in an opened package and, of course, they said it was fine.

Well I returned that one and the new one works great.

maybe I should have waited for the 1850 -- that sounds cool.

Thanks for the replies guys. I know what you mean about being quiet. I'm still hunting with my 13 year old brittany this year. She's been deaf for about two years now, but knows hand signals very well. I don't have to say a peep out in the field, and you can certainly tell the difference between that and being very vocal with your voice and whistles.

My buddy was out at my hunting shack over pheasant opener and started reading ROOSTER!, which I have out there on the coffee table. I guess he read somewhere in there about the "hawk call" to stop running birds. And then not even a week later I read that that was a feature on the new sportdog 1850. Just thought it was interesting. I've got a 15 week old English Setter and I'm just thinking about what kind of collar to pick up by sometime next spring. Overall, it doesn't seem like you can go wrong with sportdog, but I don't really have a lot of knowledge on any e collar brands, other that what a few friends have recommended.

      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.
