      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 .

Duck hunting?

Recommended Posts

mrwalleyee

Hey guys. I'm heading up to Nisswa on Friday after Turkey day, and was wondering if I am going to need to bring and dekes or guns along. Or should I pack the ice fishing gear? Any help would be appreciated, and if anyone is looking for a partner to put the smack down on some greenheads, let me know. I'm not willing to pack the dekes away until the season is over. Thanks, Paul

Anyone? Is there any open water up there? Is there any birds up there? If you don't want to post it here, but would still like to help me out, you can email me. mrwalleyee@hotmail.com

I'm not looking for any honey holes. I heard that there has been a lot of action along hole in the day bay. Any big greenheads working there. grin.gifgrin.gif

I live by the gull river. All the small ponds are locked up solid. The Gull river has been producing some birds, but the big flocks are sparse. If I were you I would look towards the big waters(gull,north long)Can't over look the Mississippi River.

Good Luck, I cleaned the gun and are working on the fish house right now!!!

Gull is open, why not go set-up at Grassy Point? As you know timing is almost everything and with the cold coming in maybe it will be perfect!!

Grassy is the big point on the NW side of the lake. There were quite a few mallards hanging around hole in the day bay this afternoon.

I saw them too, Jason. It almost looked like the type that live off of popcorn rather than field corn the way they were tucked up in between all the cabins, huh...

Maybe they will taste better. Afterall, I was just watching FOX news and they were saying that on the first Thanksgiving back in 1621 they had venison and wildfowl, who knows where that Gobbler came from anyway. Should be a good duck hunting weekend with all the wind and cold.

Good luck if you go, I'm going rooster hunting.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Walleyedan

We'll be heading to the Dakotas next week for one last shot at some roosters. Boy Hop those Birds down there in Brooten don't stand a chance with all those pups. Then I'll be out checking for some early ice somewhere. Happy Thanksgiving to Dan, Hop, and everyone and your families.

Well, I'm sitting here trying to decide if I should throw the ice auger in the truck, or the shotgun. Things look pretty cold up there tonight and tom. What's the word on open water up there right now?

The pups were born a week ago last Sunday. Black lab puppies are the greatest. We had 8 of them. 5 males and 3 females.

Fun stuff....

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.

      Miltona is wide open, there will be quite a few boats out there this weekend. Most lakes south of Miltona are fishable by boat.

      Can the DNR or who ever reported this, never use this word again "presumptive" when dealing with Wildlife disease results again! It can be better used as, "We are awaiting the presumptive proof of Al Franken touching a boob." But not about Wildlife issues!

      It's all open...it's ready to go..But we won't see any big time cold for awhile..Still in better position then last year. I was open water fishing the first weekend of shotgun in a t-shirt last year. We'll be alright.

      Be careful in Vineland bay, even though the river runs out there, there is still some current. It's very sandy there. Find vegetation along a drop off and you'll find pike. If you are going on foot you can walk out of the East access at Father Hennepin and hit a drop off pretty close to shore. Let us know how you do!

      Interesting on the common merganser. I want to go but I'm not sure either. I was hopeful our go to lake would be open. It is but locked up tight with ice from the landing (in a sheltered bay) several hundred feet out to the more open part of the lake. Haven't seen anything on it either. Our lake is wide open and bait shop owner says he remembers terrific late season hunting on the channel full of cattails into the neighboring lake,  and I've seen birds flying by, but will have to monitor the weather. Not launching the boat if its in the 20s and gale force winds. If it was warmer and a light wind, why the heck not? My wife is also saying no, don't go. We have a lot to do this weekend. I'm like, I would go right on our lake and likely be done and in the house by 9:30 Saturday morning. I would doubt you'll be up by then. lol.
