      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 .

Dog cut up around the eyes from pheasent hunting.

Recommended Posts

This last weekend we hammered the pheasents in the cattail sloughs. It also hammered our dogs around the eyes. My dog is cut up pretty good but my buddies dogs eyes were really bloody. Anybody got any tips or ideas on how to prevent and help heal this quickly so they can get back in the field quicker after a rough hunt?

About the only thing you can do is put antibiotic ointment on the affected areas, but not directly in the eyes.

You can get opthalmic ointment from the vet that you can put in the eyes.

As far as the antibiotic ointment I was worried he would rub in into his eyes since he has been scratching at the scabs. I'll have to look into the Opthalmic ointment.

He'll be fine just leave him be.

Every weekend after 36 hours of running thru the woods wide a@# open my dog can't open her eyes until Tuesday of the next week.

Sometimes dogs will get conjunctivitis (pink eye) which will make their eyes real goopy too. The ointment can help with that too. The best is to get the ointment and put it in before the hunt. I would talk to your vet about the uses of opthalmic ointment before doing anything though.

I was told to just rub a little vasoline around his eyes before the hunt and it seems to help a little. Either way nothing is stopping him from jumping in.

Good luck

Happens to my lab almost every outing. One thing that I do that seems to really help is simply take a wash rag with hot water and rub his eyes for about 15 to 20 minutes. It gets alot of the dirt and whatever else is in his eyes out. Dog loves it too....

Part of the job description for cattail dogs. Some get it worse than others.

Vasolene can help a little if put along the sides of the eye before the hunt.

Gently rinse and wash the damaged and cut tissue with a clean paper towel or wash cloth. Keep an eye on the dog for possible infection.

Make sure the actual eye is not cut or scratched. Vet attention if it is.

My boy is just getting healed up from last weekend and now he has to go out and get cut up again this weekend. I'd feel sorry for him if he didn't love the hunt so much grin.gif

      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.

      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.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
