      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 .

I just moved back into Gustavus yesterday and did a little scouting south of LeSueur last night, to not much avail. just curious if any one is seeing geese any where. also if any one would be willing to bring a couple of college guys with them we have 3 dozen bigfoots/green head full bodies and lay out blinds. we do know what we are doing its just hard to find time to really scout between classes and such. thanks for your time and hopefully info. Jonah

Musky---I go to school over in Mankato and have been scouting around the area. I have seen a few birds working fields but getting on the land is a little difficult. Well if you ever want to go out scouting sometime together or get a couple rigs going let me know. I've got 3 1/2 dozen GHG full bodies and layout blind. Just let me know.

hey musky I was down that way over labor day weekend. I was fishing with the hopes of pass shooting a goose or two and nothing in range but I think they would have decoyed easy enough. Saw alot of geese on the river. its shallow and the sand bars could be pretty good spot to set up on . saw most of the geese at evening time along with hundreds of wood ducks. just a thought good luck guys.

Musky---Yeah its tough getting permission around the area. It seems like someone else hunts it or an outfitter leases out the field. Well like elwood says the river might not be a bad spot....set up on a sand bar (i've got waders and a boat). Well I got permission to some uncut corn right now but not sure when it will be out. Give me a call sometime if you want to go scouting or hunting. Later

I don't hunt geese until the late season. Fall fishing takes priority.

Several flocks went through town from the N ~7:30 pm this evening. I'm not sure how far S they went, but the sky line from my house was black with geese for a good 30 minutes. They're around. grin.gif

Good Luck!

Hey Browning83 I lived across from you in Campusview a couple years ago. I have a few fields in the area if you are interested for later in the year. One is south west of town near Rapidan, and the other ones are all on the north side of swan lake. I'm hunting a pasture this weekend out by swan, but I'm really waiting till my farmers get their corn out. It should be good later in the year. Shoot me an E-mail.

Hey Musky I spoke with a farmer near lake emily this morning and he said they were going to start harveting some of the corn that was flat on the ground from the tornado. That might be worth a drive and maybe if you and some buddies would offer to help a little with picking debrie out as they harvest that might go a long way. I would think there should be plenty of food left to attract them and that area has a few birds around.

Thanks Farmer

Fishky---thanks for the invite. I would would for sure like to hunt with you. If you ever want to go scouting or whatever just let me know. Like I said earlier I got decoys and blinds and calls so whenever you want to go. Let me know how you do this weekend....I am heading up north again...we did really well last weekend.

For as close as they came in, I think just about anyone could have gotten them. smile.gif There's a "few" geese around though. I could have stayed out a little while longer and likely gotten one more goose for a limit, but 4 geese is way plenty for now. It'll only get better into late October when the big ones come down. These are just your typical 9-10 pound locals. Can't wait to get the 11-13 pounders with 1/4" fat on them! cool.gif

Trouble---sounds like you guys did good down around here....we did well up north this week. I was wondering how the farmers are about getting on land or if a lot of the fields are already called for. If you ever are looking for people to hunt just let me know. I got decoys/blind/calls. Otherwise maybe I'll see you out there.

      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?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      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.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      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!
    • CLPDB
      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?
    • timjones
      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.
    • PRO-V
      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.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
