      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 .

Do most of you tend to use different size decoys in your spreads, or do you like to stick with one size, etc Mags, Super Mags, standard? Just curious. Thanks

Most of my deke's are standard size. I do have some magnums mixed in, but for no particular reason. They are just decoys I found on the lake or picked up cheap here and there. Everybody has their own preferences and belief's. My personal beliefs are with ducks it doesnt make a difference in the size of the decoys. Numbers do make a difference when the flocks your trying to call in are larger, and small groups come in without a problem with a huge spread. Ducks have great eyesight and dont have a problem seeeing your spread. A better way to draw more attention is by spinning wing decoys, one of these will provide more of a visual than an entire spread of decoys, and creates movement which is especially important on calm days.

The only way I could see the need for super mags is if huge flocks of ducks are all flying the same altitude of passenger jets ... when those particular flocks decide to come back down to earth it usually just about sunset and time to rest for the night. They will lock, sway, and circle a few times to drop elevation.. but by this time they can see your standard spread of decoys the same as any other spread .. and they usually land where they see other birds landing, or where theres the most birds (largest spread)of decoys ... that is if they dont decide to land in the middle of the lake anyway.

I would use whatever your most confident with weather it would be volkswagon size decoys, or standard. Just remember you need to load these decoys every trip and the bigger they are the more they weigh, and more room they take ... at the same time it makes a good excuse to buy a bigger duck boat.

I use Mag mallards....

But when mixing in different species I feel that it is key to have a defference in size.....it just shows up better to the birds...i feel...all my other species are standards...(Woodies, Pintail, Ringbills, ad Teal) Cept for my big water diver spread which is all Magnum Herters.
