      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 .

Another Dog Down!

Mitch and I were going to go fishing this morning but I woke up around 2 A.M. and looked out and thought that maybe there was enough light to take another crack at the coyote population.

I tried to get Mit up but it was apparent that wasn't going to happen. I grabbed the gear and headed out.

1st set: I saw and heard nothing.

2nd set: I headed to a farm that is quickly becoming one of our best. The wind was out of the SE and I was sitting along a woodline on the East side of a picked cornfield. The road is to the North. I put the decoy and caller 30 yards to the SW of me. I started with a couple howls and sat back and scanned with the binoculars and thought I saw two sitting 200 yards South of me. I thought I saw them move but convinced myself that it must be a couple of stumps along the fence line. I howled a couple more times then switched to coyote and fox fight and immediately saw the two spots start running from left to right in front of me. I got on the coyote on the right and when he stopped at 140 yards I let fly with the

17 Rem and heard the bullet hit and down it went. The other one bugged out. I hit the pup distress for a bit then shut it off and that's when the tongue lashing started. She barked non stop for a few minutes and then would throw in a howl. I could barely see her through the binoculars so there was no point in looking through the scope. She eventually barked her way off and I scampered out to collect my nice male. I'm amazed at how good the coyotes in our area have looked this year. Only one had mange and all the others looked perfect.

If I were a coyote in the area you hunt, I would get out of that country.

Nice job.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
