      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 .

Minnesota Waterfowl Assoc. Business Needed

Recommended Posts

The Minnesota Waterfowl Association has a mission of protecting, restoring and enhancing habitat. Project efforts benefit migratory waterfowl and other wetland wildlife. The MWA is non-profit organization that survives through fundraising.

The Dakota Great Swamp Chapter of the Minnesota Waterfowl Association is currently planning it's annual fundraising banquet, to be held February 26th, 2004. This is the single primary fundraising event for the entire year. It consists of a dinner, live and silent auctions, raffles, and a gun raffle; these exciting elements are the draw to attend the event, and tickets to the event provide the fundraising revenue for the organization.

As in years past, we are soliciting contibutions for this event from businesses who are concerned about preserving our natural resources. Anything you could offer in the form of a raffle prize/door prize, silent or live auction item would be sincerely appreciated, and your business would be recognized as a contributor at our banquet. In addition, this is a great way to showcase any new products you may have. Of course we accept cash donations as well smile.gif

This year's banquet has some very exciting elements to it, with some pretty famous personalities volunteering to attend. But we sincerely need the help of any businesses out there that are willing.

If you think you can help out in any way or have any questions, please contact jon.p.keller@comcast.net (kpj5br on FM)

Thanks

Rick, thanks for posting this.

For all duck and goose hunters out there, the MWA really fights for you on a number of levels (legislative, wetland restoration, public hunting opportunities, etc.) and could really use your support.

Thanks

Trashdux,

that post simply was not called for.

You need links authorized before posting and you certainly are not allowed to bash.

The fundraising banquet will be held in Lakeville, MN, at the Chart House Restaraunt and Banquet Center.

Please email me with other questions or specifics, your donation is tax deductible, and MWA provides a receipt for your tax purposes for the retail value of your donations.

Everyone on here that hunts ducks should be a member of the MWA. IMO.

They help do a lot.

Hi all, it's been a while since I updated this post, but this banquet is coming up next month.

I wanted to invite you all to attend, many great sponsors game through, and we will have a ton of raffle and auction items, including guns, waterfowl prints signed ONSITE by artist David Maass who will be receiving the MWA Lifetime Achievement Award that night.

My email is up above in the posts, but I'll put it here again just in case.

The regular advertisement for this goes out next week, and we expect a sell-out quickly, so this is an opportunity for the fishingmn community to get first dibs.

Thanks, and hope to see you there supporting minnesota's waterfowl and hunting habitat!

Jon

      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!
