      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 .

Well we had a great opener until I went to set the decoys Sunday and found I left my bag of decoys at the spoy we hunted Saturday.It was north of Braham at "Rice Lake" if anyone happened to find them it would be great if you let me know.

On that note how many other have people forgot stuff only to never be found again ?

Used my Remington duck hunter's knife working on my gun when it jammed. I thought I put it back in my shell box...

I must have laid it in the weeds & mashed it into the mud or something. I couldn't find it.

I lost my big mag lite last year on a duck hunt north of Detroit Lakes...

also, my brother left his lanyard with calls and a band on the other side of a marsh last duck season. once the thing froze up in december, we walked all the way across, dug under some snow where we had been sitting, and found them....in perfect condition!

have also lost a few decoys over the years but nothing major.

S.A.

I have lost mag lites and two way radios. Usually it is me dropping something into the marsh and by the time I figure it out it is about impossible to find.

Somebody on one of these sites mentioned putting your name on the bottom of all your decoys. I think that is a great idea. It not only helps you keep yours seperate from your buddies, but I don't know if I would want to hunt with a guy that has decoys with somebody else's name and address written across the entire bottom of a decoy.

I have my name on my decoys, but I do have some decoys with a different name on them. My father-in-law gave them to me & I know he didn't steal them, he bought them on a garage sale. I believe the name on the dekes did match up with the name on the mailbox at the garage sale. They're crappy decoys & have hot glue all over the bb holes in a few of them, but they helped make my spread a little bigger.

I've lost a few in a beaver pond before. I don't know if the beavers stole them or the neighbors, they were all on the water when they disappeared.

I lost a bag of goose decoys going up 35 north--hit the semi behind me and he ran them over. I lose a lot of things because I make safe places for them to sit and than I forget where that safe place was. I forgot my boat plug once and did not realize it until I was in the middle of the lake. I forgot my gun at home, I have forgotten my shells, my license ( very expensive learning lesson), and most importantly if anybody sees my wife let her know how to get a hold of me.

I would be very careful making assumptions that people are thievs just because they have decoys with someone elses name on them.

I personally have about 8 different names, initials, paint colors or whatever in my spread. All were aquired legally through sales and gifts. Maybe I should paint all of the bottoms one color so someone does not think I stole them!! grin.gif

I lost my wedding ring last year, on the Sunday of the opener.... I did not notice it was gone until the 2nd qtr of the Vikings game that day... I think I lost it while retrieving decoys in the muck.... Quick piece of advice, do not spend 500 bucks on a platinum wedding ring, when a 200 white gold, that looks the same, will do...

Bushwacker,

I have been doing the name under the decoys for year. The funny part is I hunted with a guy and while throwing out his decoys I noticed the name on them was not his and he said he bought them from the guy. Funny part is I knew the guy and knew he would never sell him. I went and told the guy I found his stolen decoy's and he got the sheriff and politly asked for them back. The other guy moved grin.gif

      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!
