      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 .

Duck count

Its great to hear that they are planning on a 60 day season this year. I must say that in my travels around the area every small holding pond or sloughs do seem to be holding broods if not multiple broods. Spoke to my bros up north and their saying the same thing. Hard to believe it's only a little over 2 months away. Anybody else noticing a lot of broods? just wondering.

Went to western ND this past weekend to visit family. Ducks EVERYWHERE. Like you said, any lake, slough, pond, ditch, or parking lot puddle had at least a couple coots in it. smile.gif Population does look good this year. Now, if I could just hit the dang things when they come into the deeks!

Riverrat, yes I've been seeing lots of duck broods. Our house is on a big pond, and I've counted one batch of 17, another of 9, a group of 8 mergansers, and a couple of smaller batches. Just last week I saw 5 little fluffballs following a hen wood duck! I told them to eat hardy and grow fast!!

Blaze, are you out practicing with clay pigeons yet? If not, lets get together and duck hunt this fall, I love duck hunting with guys that don't know how to shoot!!

BlackJack,

Clay what? Pigeons? What's that? You mean we're supposed to practice BEFORE season opens? confused.gif It's all becoming clear now...

I'd love to get together and *scare* a few ducks this fall. Sounds like we could hunt in your back yard! I'm a great hunting partner - I always make the other guy look like a better shot than me! Hah! Last season I did boast one good shot on a 100mph duck (I swear!) that drew some "ooo's" and "aaah's" from the others in the duck boat, but that's a rare event for me. I usually try to do a fair amount of shooting in Sept. to warm up for season. Next summer I may try joining a trap league. I'm also trying to mix a new Benelli into the picture this year if I can find the $$ - maybe that'll fix my shooting problems? Yeah, right...
