      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 .

Anti’s seek to BAN - - MN Dove Hunting.

Recommended Posts

GrousetoBluebill

Got this today

Sportsmen’s grassroots action is needed to combat the email efforts by the Anti’s to BAN MN Dove Hunting. Send a Sportsmen’s Petition against banning MN Dove hunting:

Stop the effort to BAN Minnesota Dove Hunting

Sportsmen for Change is combating the Anti’s and defending hunter rights. But we need help in getting sportsmen to email legislators on the issue.

“The Humane Society of the United States is sending e-mails to its Minnesota members urging them to contact lawmakers in support of new legislation banning mourning dove hunting in the State.”Sunday, January 11, 2008 - Pioneer Press | Outdoor Writer Chris Niskanen

PS: We need sportsmen to petition legislators to STOP the anti's

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

HSUS Anti-Hunter Email,

Please restore Minnesota's tradition of protecting doves by voting in favor of S.F. 2329 or H.F. 2501.

Mourning doves, the traditional symbol of peace, were protected for 58 years before the state legislature narrowly passed a bill in 2004.

There is simply no reason to shoot doves. They are not overpopulated and do not cause property or crop damage. Doves are even referred to as the "farmer's friend" because they eat the seeds of pest weeds.

Doves have significant value as live songbirds and are an important part of the state's bird-watching and feeding industry. Dove hunting has proven immensely unpopular and even the Department of Natural resources called the first season a "non-event."

Dove hunting is also cruel. There is an unacceptably high wounding rate, with studies indicating an average wounding rate of 30 percent, meaning one in three birds is shot but not killed, and then never retrieved.

Dove hunting is also known to produce orphaned young because doves are still nesting during the 60-day hunting season.

Minnesota voters oppose dove hunting. A poll conducted by the Minnesota House of Representatives during the 2003 Minnesota State Fair found that voters opposed allowing a dove hunting season in the state by a three-to-one margin.

It is time for Minnesota to restore its tradition of protecting doves. Please support S.F. 2329 / H.F. 2501.

Gota love the tree huggers always finding somthing to complain about. Some people see the dove as a symbol of peace or something like that. For us sportsman we see doves as a great sporting bird and good eats. Some people just need to get a life but everyone has the right to there own thoughts about it

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      Hey all, I am looking to catch a decent perch in the 7" or bigger range and soon because in my class at school we get to taxidermy a fish and I would like to do a yellow perch, I have fished little Pulaski for 2 days and Buffalo for one and caught nothing on Buffalo lake and some bluegills and bass on little pulaski. Anyone got advice on spots in little Pulaski or Buffalo lake or just another lake near by Buffalo as well for perch? Thanks - jim
