      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 .

laydown blinds

me and my buddy just got premission to hunt some very good goose hunting land and we have decided to look for some lay down blinds. we are going to go to the game fair the last day next sunday hoping to find a good deal on them. So i was wondering if we could get some feed back on some nice blinds to look for hopefully on the less expensive side.

I really like my Avery finisher. Had it for 3 years now and I think I got it for $200.

Yeah, the Finisher is pretty much the standard I think. There are some other ones that I have not used like the Power Hunter and the Cabelas models, but if you are willing to spend the $250 go with the finisher

does anyone have the problem on their finisher blind with the headrest not staying in or is a pain in the butt to get into the posts?

Cabelas usually has a couple of their Interceptors in the Bargain Cave for a good deal

I had a finisher and got rid of it. It was a great blind but I am about 6'3" and I didn't feel comfortable in it. The main thing I didn't like was that I couldn't raise my legs up because of the gun rest. I got an Xlander from Final Approach and have liked that one so far. There are a few new blinds out this year that are kind of a cross between a finisher and a power hunter. They look like they would be a good low profile blind and are cheaper than the others. Your best bet would be to go to a store that has a wide variety and lay in a few and go with the one that you think is the most comfortable. Good luck with your purchase.

I'll second the Cabela's Interceptor blinds...I have a couple of them and they take a beating. I've had them so muddied up they weighed twice the normal weight. I spray them out, let them dry and the material holds up to the muddy/wet/dry/muddy/wet/dry etc. Plenty of room but not too high of a profile for my use. I'm not the best on my equipment and these are worth the money. Only thing I've done is spray paint the tubes at the bend as they are polished aluminum and stick out like a turd in a punch bowl. Until the ducks/geese read up on them and find out it's an economy blind, I'll use 'em until they fall apart...which isn't likely to be any time soon!

      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
