      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 .

She is a Newfie/Retriever cross and 14 weeks old. Very smart and built like a tank. I plan on duck hunting her along with some grouse trail work. The problem right now is biting. She has every chewie toy in the world but still has a tough time not mouthing/chewing on me and the wife. Currently she gets her upper jaw squeezed and a firm "No Biting!" but this doesn't seem to help as she thinks it's a game. Any advice???

She's just a young pup. They all do that. Keep correcting her the way you are. Eventually she will stop. Just be aware it could take a while. My pups all did the same thing. I still don't know if the corrections are what worked or if they just grew out of it. Stay the course. You're doing the right thing. As with all training, it's repetition and it doesn't happen over night. It takes time and patience. Good luck.

Chunky you are doing things right. I would suggest going to an obedience class/ puppy school too. When you say grab the top law are you folding the lip under and pressing it against the canine tooth? This can give you a better resoponse. And use less pressure on the nose.

What a cross! The thing will be able to pull you and the ice house out this winter! One thing with Newfies is that they do get hot spots and need some grooming. Just have to wait and see how the hair comes in this winter.

I'd just say to stick with it. My pup is eighteen months now and it's remarkable how much better she's gotten with the biting these last few weeks. She still has her moments, but she seems to just brush over my hands now with her teeth. I use verbal commands usually and only the occasional mouth grab. Give it time....

Suggestion from my wife. She was reading the board..

The best thing to do for a pup who is mouthing a lot is to handle it how her litter mates would… yelp! Whenever she starts biting or mouthing too hard, let out a loud OUCH! This will startle the pup and also let her know that she hurt you… chances are she will drop to her belly and try to apologize. Let her know things are ok but do this each time she bites too hard. This will teach her what is acceptable playing and what is not. It will also enforce your (and your wifes) role as alpha.

Hey folks. Thanks for the replies! Very much appreciated and getting better all the time. Man! She bulked this last week. It was like I turned around and BAM "Look dad, I gained 15 pounds last night". She's retrieving quite well and has taken to the water like a duck. Water hunting is new to me so this should be interesting. I've been hunting behind Brits for 6 years and have become used to pointers. I'll be duck hunting for the first time this fall but she'll be a bit young for that. I was planning on taking her for a few stomps through the woods though. Not Bird Camp, just me, the gun, and the pooch. Think she's too young for that?

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action.

      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping

      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.

      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
