      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 .

REMEMBER---the adult DOES NOT GET TO CARRY A GUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last year I heard people bragging on waterfowler.com about shootin the $*^# outta the ducks with their kids and all these people tryin to find a kid to take hunting so they could hunt a weekend early.. even if your goose hunting you cannot have a gun..
Its for the kids.. dont take advantage of it

It is just Saturday right?I could shoot geese again on Sunday?

My daughter is a little too young yet to handle a shot gun, so I been taking her out with me while I hunt so she can see what it's all about.

But if I can't do the shooting on Sunday ,maybe I will have to buy a .410 and some Bismuth for her on Sunday.

Benny,

Youth day is Saturday only. You can hunt Geese on Sunday as part of the early goose season. Your daughter can hunt with you on Sunday but only as a goose hunter.

Enjoy!

I am thinking that you can goose hunt like normal on Saturday. But you can't have your kid taking part of the Youth Day. You can treat Saturday the same as the other days of early goose.

jlm, I have not seen any myself.I just heard it is the only non steel non toxic load out there for the .410.

I bet you could find it at Fleet farm or sportsmans wherehouse.

Gander is to cheap to carry .410 loads.

I live in the Grand Rapids area and stopped at Glen's Army Navy store inquiring about .410 steel shot. They said it usually runs about $40 a box. I just bought my daughter a single shot .20 gauge to use for duck hunting. A buddy of mine that's a hard core duck hunter said he used to kill alot of ducks with his .410 when he was a kid. The biggest thing was to pattern the gun and realize the effective range of it.

Last year I wanted to take my son duck hunting with the 410. Big disappointment to find out the only non toxic load was bismuth....$49/ box of 10!!!!!!!
He shot squirrels again, this year graduating to a 20 ga.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?

      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      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!
