      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 .

Here Dovey, Dove!

Recommended Posts

Well, it’s that time of year again to keep an eye open to the sky and start chasing Morning Doves. I’m certainly not saying that I’m putting my rods away, but I will start to stray away from evening fishing extravaganzas in exchange for some prime time dove hunting.

I’d like to get a feel for how many people in the Rochester area are planning on doing some dove hunting this season? Also, if you interested in doing a little tag-teaming on those buggers, let me know. I’ll be sneaking out a few times in the next few weeks to hopefully track down some permission on a few fields in the Rochester area.

I’m going to try my best to beat the 58 Downed Doves from last year. Who’s with me?

Shaun,

Dove hunting is one of those sports where the more, the merrier.

We'll touch base is it gets closer.

Hey Tyler!

I would absolutely love to do some dove hunting. The majority of the hunting I do is duck hunting...but it would be great to give dove hunting a try. Let me know if you are ever looking for someone to go with you.

I was also going to ask...does anyone belong to a gun club in the Rochester area? I was thining about joining one but wanted to get some info from others in the area.

Thanks!

Nate

All "missing/wiffing/air balling" aside, dove hunting can be a lot of fun. It's a challange, no doubt.

Dove hunting is a blast. I did it a few times in CO with a buddy. Those things are quick. I'd be in as well but it's a drive for me from Farmington. I need to see if there is anywhere closer to me where I can hunt both Pheasants and Dove.

Tyler I have been scouting for Doves in the WMAs, but I have not seen more than a few doves in these planted fields.

So if you find Too many Doves around here I think, I could help thin them a bit.

Nice pics from 05.

There are some good spots to shoot dove in the rochester area wma. The best information I can give you guys is, take the time to walk the fields and look around. You will be surprised where the birds are. Also, try to stick around areas where the birds cross from field to field. The farthest shot I've taken was about 40-50 yrds. Anything past that distance, and I will not shoot.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      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
    • monstermoose78
      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
