      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 .

Hey folks,
I sat in my deer stand sat and sun morning near artichoke lake near ortonville MN. I heard shooting at 5:45am both mornings. I was disgusted, it was totally dark out! I would of called the tip line but I was miles from a phone. All I have to say is, if I hear that again, I will bring my cell phone and call. DNR have a hard time covering area, lets be their eyes and ears. Lets work together to keep the rules in check and be mentors to the people that have no respect for wildlife and the law.

I'm done venting.

Could it be someone shooting a coyote or coon or skunk when they go out in the morning? shot gun or rifle?

The one thing I learned when hunting in a different state is read the regs. WI you can shoot first thing in the am. MN it is later.

Not trying to cover anything up but maybe something needed to get shot.

I heard them to I was south and east of Clinton about 8-10 miles or so and I heard somone shooting around the same time that day. It souned to me like they were south of where we were. I know they had to have been gooses hunters cause I kept hearing shots from that direction up until we left at around 0745. I also heard some hunters shooting to the north of us about I would say 2-3 miles at about 615 and I know they were goose hunters because I saw the flock get up and head to the east. That's pretty sad when people have to do things like that just to shoot a goose. No hunting morals or common sense what so ever.

people always shoot early...its wrong on many levels because not only is it unfair to the other law-abiding hunters out there, the chances for them to cripple and lose birds is far greater when they can't even see across the swamp.

hopefully this opener we will not hear any shots before 9:00am, but i would be very surprised if we didn't. We hunt in an area where there are a ton of duck hunters, and once the season is officially open, it sounds like a firing range.

Man I can't wait for this weekend...any talk about hunting right now just makes me want to skip classes this week, jump in the truck and drive up to the cabin and wait out the remaining days there....

EEEEEeeeeeeeee

S.A.

Too bad they are hunters. I have hunted the Ortonville area in the past and liked it but it does get crowded. It took me a long time to shoot my first goose but it was legal and well worth the wait.

Just hope they do not choose your swamp on opening day.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!
