      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 .

There are a lot of great goose calls that are under $100. Most major call makers have custom calls that you can order in Delrin or wood that have the same guts as the acrylics, but have half the price. I have calls all the way up to $150, but the ones I have on my lanyard every hunt are all under $75.00. There are a lot of very good ones, but the customer service is what seperates the good from the best.

My top three goose calls under $100 would be:

1) Delrin Winglock Short Reed- Great call that is very easy to operate. Rick Perry is the owner and call maker and he will tune to your liking and if that doesn't work for you send it back in and he will retune it. It sells for $59.99 off of his website.

2) GK Calls Giant Slayer- It is a great sounding short reed that is made out of acetal, which is a material very similar to delrin. You can drive over it with your truck and not do any damage to it at all. It sells for $79.99 off of the GK site-but you also get a free copy of Shawn Stahl's honker talk with it(the best short reed instructional video I have seen-$19.99 value)Bob Alfieri is the owner and also has great customer service. I sent my call back to him to tune it real deep and he had it back to me in 3 days for no charge at all.

3. Black Dymondwood Hayes Call. Bob Hayes is another top notch customer service guy. If you have any trouble with his calls he will either fix it himself or talk you through it. I tried to re-tune mine and got it all screwed up, I emailed him and he gave me some instructions and they were good enough for me to re-tune it and actually learn how to tune all of my calls. He has a website with a lot of great calls for very good prices. Wood, Delrin, or Acrylic are all well under $100.

Just like any musical instrument, you'll get what you pay for. I wouldn't rule out a pricey call, but then again, don't buy just any hi-end call. A cheaper call usually sounds great when you first get it, but humidity, dryness, and other factors will make that call sound different everytime you take it out.

Customer service does also make or break your call.

In my opinion, and I've tried pretty much every hi-end call out there, THERE IS NOTHING THAT COMES CLOSE TO THE GROUNDS PRO SUPER MAG.

Tim is as nice as they come. Email him, tim@timgrounds.com

He'll typically give you a call and blow some calls for you. Great guy

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
