      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 .

Ok here goes, we are field hunting in SE metro and have had good success in past years for geese, this year we are 0 for 10 days of hunting. Cant get the geese to even give us a second look, we have 4 dozen mixed decoys, flocked heads and bodies and motion stakes, we are hunting out of blinds and the spread looks good, here is the problem they want to land in the chiseld fields in front of us where we cant hunt, we are sitting on alfalfa and clover what can we do>????????

Do you use flags??? Many times good flagging is the ticket to getting geese to give you a second look.

Time to move.. Your not going to get them to leave a higher carbo feed just to land for ya.. Corn is optimum for now. Beans only as a second choice this late in the year. Study your birds a little closer you will see they change feed prefference as the temp changes..

After the fields get covered with snow and you have new birds in the area you might have a chance.. Myself I would have been on the move the next day;.

Get out of the hay field. Geese are looking for: first corn then beans. I have a field in the SE metro that's half field corn/half sweat corn. They still are reluctant to come int.

The geese you are hunting might want to be sitting water.

A couple years ago we had some "big time goose hunters" rent a field right next to the river we were hunting and set up close to 150 decoys and we had 3 guys sitting on the river with maybe 25 floaters and we pulled geese from them all morning we shot our 15 and they didn't fire a shot. So if you have a good body of water near there give it a try.

How's your calling?

If the geese don't want to be there (your field), they won't go there. The geese have their little routine down now. They know where the food is and thats about the only thing on their mind, plus they are very aware of decoys, pits, layout blinds, and bad calling after being shot at for 2+ months now.

You're going to either need to get into the fields they are currently feeding in, or really have your calling game down to pull them close to you.

If there are other hunters in the area, you may have to mix up what you are doing to give the geese a different look. If everyone else is hunting over 3-4 dozen full bodies, that might not be the right thing to do. May have to go less, or go more to be different.

Just some ideas.

Saturday a few flocks flew around in the SE metro, thought I would have seen more mallards around; only a few flocks seen. Should only get better as more lake lock-up.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were
