      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 .

I am! I would guess the last 2 weeks in March for our group depending on weather and how the migration is going. Destination somewhere in Sd. I have been doing it for countless yrs and I still get extremely excited when it gets close!

I prefer to hunt around the Redfield Tulare area but will go where ever the best concentrations are. I have personally hunted to the S the Desmet,Lake Preston,Lake Thompson areas. To the North the Aberdeen,Sand lake,Huron Britton areas. One yr we hunted the Faulkton area and really put the smack on the birds hit some nice foggy days!

a group of 4 or 5 of us are going to try and make it out there for a 3-day hunt

I've never exprienced it but a couple buddies did last year and said they'll never miss it again.

Hoping to make it out there before the 24th when I'll be in Cancun for 8 days. I know, rough life \:\)

You know I'm going! cool.gif

In the past we've gotten excited, chased the smart adults birds and this year we are hanging back and chasing the dumb juvies that tag behind the adults up to a few weeks later. Don't assume all the birds migrate in one large mass north... whistle.gif Those adult flocks that start the migration are HARD to hunt!

Through experience we've found the longer wait results in better weather and those juvie birds easier to decoy/kill.

Good luck!

I will be out there this year... Im probably going to head south this weekend to do some scouting/pass shooting if the oppurtunity presents itself. I dont plan on trying to lay a stock on them as it just educates the birds. My decoys should be coming next week! I plan on following them into ND and hunting as many weekends as they will allow. I cant wait.

I've gone twice this spring, and hope to go a few more times. We shoot all of our birds over decoys. Here's a few pictures of our hunts already.

      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?
    • h8go4s
      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
