      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 .

Is it legal to use a doe decoy now during rifle season?

NO. Only during Archery.

I don't think this is right. I do not believe there are any restrictions on gender of decoy at any time during any of the deer seasons.

I was saying No decoys at all outside of Archery season. Gender is not the issue.

I think decoys can be used any season just do so at your own risk. I haven't used one, but would not even think of doing so during 3B!

I'm fairly certain, almost 100 percent positive you can use when in any open hunting season or leave it out 24/7, 365 if I am not mistaken. Never read a regulation saying otherwise. Agreed that its not the wisest thing to do during open gun seasons, even on private land. If you do so, make dang sure everyone who could be there knows you have one out and it wouldn't hurt to spraypaint orange blotches on it or mark it with lots of orange tape. Shouldn't spook the deer.

Either way, I will never use one again. I have one out archery hunting in SE MN and I had a gentleman stalk my decoy and shoot it with an arrow. I will be honest; it speaks very highly of the decoy, but not for our fellow hunter. I was in a stand 7 ft away from the guy when he drew his bow. I didn't stop him because it was far more amusing watching his embarrassment as he reached for a second arrow after the decoy didn't fall or run away. The guy then laughed and apologized to me. Unfortunately, he wrecked my spot as he had scrambled out to kill the monster doe with his jeans and tennis shoes. I surely wouldn't use it during gun season and would be skeptical during muzzleloader. I still think it is against the law, but like you said, I couldn't find it in the regs one way or the other.

Thought I heard something on the radio today that someone was shot while moving a deer decoy.

      I recently purchased a humminbird 688ci hd ice locator and it has GPS and the option for lake master chip. I'm going to drive to Cabela's to buy a chip  and was wondering the difference between the Lake Master Minnesota and the Minnesota Plus. Anyone have any experience with these and are they worth the money. Thanks.

      I haven’t checked backwaters since last weekend, but I checked the small lake this morning and it has just under 2 inches of ice.  McNally’s has been hit pretty hard for the last 2 weeks.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.
