      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 .

11/10

Season starting to get a little bit better. Hunting Near Staples. Saturday morning two of us managed two ring necks, lots of ringers and some mallards seen just were not in the right spot. Drove around and found a lake with a good concentraion of Divers. Kicked them off the lake and they started coming back in small groups managed to get 1 Stud drake redhead and 5 ringers.

11/11

Morning managed to get five drake ringnecks many divers seen, not many mallards or geese in the area.

The ducks are definatley starting to fly, It should get better in the next week or so, hopefully their is more mallards around next weekend.

Good Luck.

Hunted north of Stillwater this weekend with my brother and one of his friends.

11/10 Lots of mallards, had a few larger flocks fly through. I shot 3, my brother 1. I should have had more in the early light but was chasing the dog too much... Weather was excellent, thick overcast and some sleet kept the birds moving late into the morning.

11/11, less ducks flying, it wasn't nearly as productive as Saturday. Few birds came to the decoys, managed to take 2 mallards.

Is f.f. Fleet Farm? If it is, I live in the neighborhood just north of those fields. It is amazing to me every year how quickly the ducks and geese find that field after the farmer cuts the corn. I love seeing and hearing all those birds flying over the house every AM & PM. I wish you were able to hunt that field but it is in Oakdale and they do not allow hunting.

Fleet Farm does not hold the ducks like the hotel ponds in St. Paul!

I think he meant Otterville, not FF.

I hunted all around Herman this weekend, some west almost to Wheaton, east to Hoffman and south almost to Morris. There were some flocks of northern mallards and EPP Canadians, but nothing compared to what it's normally like. Maybe with this cold front coming up...

Was deer hunting last weekend in FF area (this case FF means Fergus Falls) and there was a ton of geese, lots of mallards, and plenty of buffies and golden eyes. We duck hunted Sunday morn, and got some redheads, buffies, ringbill and even a couple hooded sawbills. The lakes started opening back up, but when they were closed on Friday and Sat, holy cow did they flock in the openings in the water!

I feel a bit dumb thinking F.F. was Fleet Farm and not Fergus Falls.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go. 
    • MinDak Hunter
      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.
    • Croix1959
      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
