      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 .

As many of you know I have a six month old yellow lab named Kinsey. For my birthday (today) I wanted to take her to a game farm to see how she is progressing from my attempts to train her. (Please do not make this into a thread about game farms - this was a training exercise).

So five people and 20 birds at the game farm. We could not ask for a better day - 35 degress and sunny. A friend of my father brought his 2 1/2 year old lab. I was concerned that Kinsey would be too concerned about another dog to actually work.

The first quarter mile Kinsey looked like she just wanted exercise. Running fast as she could from the edge of the drive line to the next. Her speed, while impressive produced no birds.

After a couple birds were down she smelled them and related a little bit. A gun malfunction found us back at the vehicles and one guy had to leave for family reasons. Back out, but the 2 1/2 year old lab would not get out of the car. We opted to leave her. Kinsey was on her own.

Slowly walking to a pond area we stopped to talk. All of a sudden a rooster busted out of some weeds with Kinsey in tow. No one had a shot, but Kinsey actually found this bird. She was excited and got alot of praise.

Down to the ponds (where we were before). Kinsey to the front of me went into a patch of woods. I look up and she is nose to nose with a rooster sitting on a stump. She won't flush it but rather a solid POINT. I tell her to "GET" - it flushes and I shoot. Bird down. She runs over - dances and barks and brings it back to me after 2 minutes of gumming the bird. Now, I am kinda proud.

Back out hunting producing six more birds that the dog flushed/pointed up by herself. One wounded and running sent Kinsey into high gear chasing and barking (although hesitant to pick it up) she brought it back with wings hitting her face - to my hand.

A light went on yesterday - and I am one proud owner today. I have some pictures on my phone - I will try to post if I can figure it out.

Oh, forgot. I got home and Kinsey has pheasant blood on her face and side. I was excited to tell my wife everything Kinsey did and how proud I was. She looked at me and said "bath! Dog then you!"

Dog slept from 6:00p to 6:00a last night.

Tealitup,

Great job with Kinsey. That is always awesome. That proud feeling makes you glow for weeks on end. Maybe this summer when I'm down in the cities I will get a hold of you and get Kensey, Teal, and Widgeon together to make a day in the field. I have gotten some great feedback on this litter. Please Email me with some pics so I can update Teal's scrapbook when you get a chance, you got my email address. Great job again and keep in touch.

Chad

Sounds good Chad. If I can figure out how to transfer pictures I would do it in a heartbeat.

      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?

      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

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
