      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 .

Just purchased a black lab german shorthair mix for my wifes birthday (she wanted it) and was wondering if anyone has had something like it and if they will be good hunters.

Both breeds have excellent qualities. I have a buddy who has a black lab/german shepherd mix and gets his two roosters almost every time! It turned out to be a great pheasant dog. I would think a shorthaired pointer/lab mix would be great...haven't known anyone who has one.

I have the result of a GSP that bred with a farm dog St. Bernard/black lab/golden mix.

It's a great dog.

What do you call that cross? A Germador Pointriever.

It's worth trying the dog to see what you have.

For the whinning, get one of those old alarm clocks that you have to wind-up and wrap it up in a towel and put it in her crate (it makes them feel like they are sleeping with their mother). Works like a charm. For the chewing you are on your own, part of being a puppy.

This behavior is in page 1 of the puppy handbook. grin.gif Even a pup from the most pristine of breedings will do this.

After a while the pup will grow out of the night time whining. Give it plenty of safe chew toys for the chewing. Lots of playtime to wear the pup out will help too. A tired pup is a good pup because it's sleeping.

Carpmaster - we have Annie - a yellow lab/GSP mix - she is a wonderful house dog, great with the kids, fairly well-behaved (doesn't chew anything in the house), rings a bell hanging on the door knob when she needs to go out, etc. However, she is high strung!! She needs the ball thrown to her every day and needs a fairly large yard to run. She can follow most simple commands. I never gave her any formal field training (I'm not a hard-core hunter - if I get out grouse hunting at least 3 times in a year it would be a miracle). Anyway, I took her out a few times thinking that some of the natural instinct would kick in. Not a chance!! I know that it's my fault for not providing the proper training but I was hoping for the slight chance that she would perhaps point or retreive a downed bird. Nope! She was terrified of the grouse that my buddy shot when we showed it to her. She'll stick to the trail but will not get into the thick stuff to look for birds. What can I say, she's a lover, not a fighter. It's kind of strange because I was told that her Mom, the lab and her Dad, the GSP, were both great hunting dogs. On the bright side, we have a wonderful canine companion without a mean bone in her body. Let me know how your dog turns out. I'm sure with proper training, it should turn out to be a fine dog.

I had a great labrador about 15 years ago that was an escape artist and would go over to her boy friends quite frequently which happened to be a GSP. Next thing ya know I had a litter of pups to deal with. I gave away all the pups for free. 2 of my buddies each took one and they both turned out to be great dogs. Both pointed like a crazy and retrieved very well. One thing I've learned over the years, if a dog has good instinct and the owner takes the time to work with it, it doesn't matter if it is a purebreed or mutt. I've even seen a pitbull/lab cross turn into a legitimate huntin dog.

Hi,

I have a lab/shorthair mix and she is awesome!!!!! Very good family dog. I don't hunt but we have woods in our back yard and she in heaven. Our dog has alot of energy. She never gets tired. She goes jogging with me in the warmer months and after running for 2 miles she will be asking to play ball in the back yard.

My dog loves to give love to everybody and everything. Also this mix is very trainable and they do listen pretty well.

Good luck.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day
