      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 .

Interesting. I deffinitly like getting rid of the all-season, and cutting out some of the extra zones. Not so sure on the .22 being legal though.

i personally enjoy the all season lisence, and unlike they say, do all three. I do however agree that it is confusing. The rules are so vague about stuff, and at times it is hard to know what is right or wrong. I like the revision idea, it will be a good thing.

On another note new to deer hunting, has anyone used the donation program set up to feed low income familes? I paid the 5 dollars in MN and wisconsin this year, but did not donate a deer. I love the idea of having fun, and then turning it around to help those people put food on the table, without taking it out of the hunters pocket like they were before.

I guess I'm okay with the proposed changes. I personally like the All-Season license a little better. My guess is that you'll see some of the bowhunters not spend the extra money on the ML license. I probably won't, it conflicts with early ice anyway & then if I have to buy more bonus tags because of it I won't do it. You'll also see some of the non bowhunters that previously have only firearms hunted & didn't want to pay for the All-Season license will start ML hunting.

I think it might help more young bucks survive in zone 4, instead of only having 2 days to hunt and shooting the first 'brown' that a person sees, you have time to sort thru and find a doe.

Downside to the nine days is more people out slug hunting while pheasant hunting is open. Its not a comfortable feeling hunting the same piece of public land when that redcoat that you see 1/4 mile away is slug hunting. Too many airheads out there that get too excited and just start blasting slugs around. I got caught up in deer drive last year. A couple guys got out of a truck and started walking a one side of a swamp about the same time I started pheasant hunting the other side of the swamp. Them without a dog made me realize in a hurry that they weren't pheasant hunting, and then I started seeing redcoats posted ahead of me!! I turned around and got the heck out of there in a hurry! Too easy for someone to see a deer running and starting blasting away without regard to whats behind it.

I like the changes, and on another note, I was never asked if I wanted to donate extra money to the venison donation program, I didn't know you could, if I would have been asked, I definately would have.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      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.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      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!
