      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 .

I am going out in the morning. Sounds like we might get some rain and or t-storms. What is your threshold as far as weather is concerned? I will not go out if there is lightning, but I do love the misty grey days or even a light snow fall for hunting....

I was out in a pounding rain last Friday, but it lightened up right at shooting time. If it's lightning, I won't go on the water. Other than lightning, I will usually go. Usually the worse the weather is, the better the hunting gets.

Snow is the best. They are flying low and just want to get down. I love it.

I agree duckbill...you can't beat the snow!

I like it cold, cloudy, with a nice chop on the water...if there is a light snow coming down, you will definitely see me out there.

Wish the forecast for this weekend would change...sounds like better weather for fishing or a ballgame than for duckhunting...70+ degrees and sunny is not weather that will keep the birds moving after the first half hour of so of shooting time.

S.A.

I hunted in the snow last week. What a blast. North wind at 40 to 50 MPH. 24 degrees F. Snow geese came in at 10 to 15 yards over the decoys.
It is funny how dumb the birds get in bad weather. We had two days of cold and blow. It saved our trip.

Late last season I bailed from work early to go duck hunitng in an approaching blizzard. It was a blast. By the time I got setup the snow was falling heavily and the wind was howling. If they weren't flying low you didn't know they were there.

I guess I'd prefer to have it 60-70 and sunny, but that doesn't always happen.

Weather in no shape or form deters me. Last year for example, we hunted ducks for 3 days when it was -16 degrees. We hunted ducks in blizzards with visabilities less than 100 yards. We spent several hours a day breaking ice to and from a secret spot...all for 15 minutes limits for 5 guys.

Why would you want it that warm / nice? That is good fishin' weather, but for hunting I prefer it 40 degrees, overcast, and a nice breeze.

This rings true for ducks, geese, pheasants, etc.

I'm skipping ducks this weekend and trading the shotgun for my Walleye rod. Will start in on ducks again next weekend - hope for &^%&^ weather in Canada or we could just "Blame it on Canada"

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
