      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 .

All the calls I have are OLT calls they are currently made by a company DJ Illinois Calls. They are not the most expensive but the DR 115 is the most realistic call I have heard to this date. I have a double reed mallard, double reed goose, single reed snow goose and a whistle all made by olt. I am a true believer in wood calls, although I have bought new calls I just don't like them, think they sound good to humans just not as much to ducks, just my 2 cents

I actually just recently got it. They were on sale at cabelas for 80 so i jumped on it. I have been pretty impressed. They say its a tough call to drive but I have worked at it for a while and really like it. Just cant wait to test it on some ducks.

Actually 1 goose call that I rarely use unless a loner is buzzing around or something, have heard everyone blowing their guts out at the birds so I've learned less is more, has been working very very well not calling but you do need the birds to see your spread so we only call if it appears they're not, once they see the dekes we shut up. Was kinda nice just holding the heater and not a call lol. Easy limits both Sunday and Monday AM. My duck calls are full of dust, we just don't see much for ducks.

Dirty Dogs Calls - green hedge single reed (lots of rasp & rattle!)

Zink PH2 - double reed

Drake whistle

Duck Commander wood duck call

Sean Mann eastern shore man - the cheaper molded one

Dirty Dogs Calls acrylic Gritty - short reed goose call

The shoreman is 12" long and annoying but sounds ridiculously good.

The Dirty Dogs Calls are really really solid - the green hedge is beautiful and sounds like a [PoorWordUsage] off old hen!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
    • Kettle
      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.
    • Chill62
      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      I'll be ok, as long as I got my daily HSO therapy!

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      if it ever comes down to those 2 choices for you, do the eye thing. Cant fish with you if yer dead.

      Looks like Big Bay is still open, so I don't think I'll be ice fishing Thanksgiving Day weekend.  I'm guessing the Big Bay will freeze this Sunday or Tuesday.  Lake should be walkable by December 2 when I plan to go up.
    • leech~~
      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists! 
    • gimruis
      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.
