      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 .

10 hours until N. Dakota trip

Recommended Posts

2thepointsetters

I am counting down the minutes until I leave for Kensal tomorrow morning at 5:30 am. The truck is packed and has been repacked because I am really excited to get my dog back from the trainer and do some hunting this weekend. I dont know how I am going to handle the count down to pheasant opener.

I will be after sharptails Saturday morning with the new setter and new gun, so I hope everything goes well. I would love to hit the bird if the dog does point one. I am hunting alone Saturday and with the dogs handler on Sunday. Should be a great time.

I will post pictures when I get back.

I bought a setter from a friends dad that trains dogs in Kensal around last Christmas. We did some sharptail hunting there late last fall and they were everywhere. Good luck it should be a great time.

The hunt went great. My girlfriend and I had a fun weekend with lots of birds. Sharptail numbers are great and the dog had a lot of nice points. It missed the first few birds before getting my 3 on Saturday, but my girlfriend shot 3 for 3 on Saturday (The guys I know in North Dakota are never going to let me hear the end of that)

I have some nice pictures but I am having trouble getting them on the computer.

I also went went dove hunting twice and that is a great time. I had a hard time learning how to lead them because they fly so fast. After I got my first one it became a little easier, I had to lead them by 3 or 4 feet it seemed.

2thepointsetters, sounds like you had a great time. I'll be making a trip to ND over MEA this year. Went out last year for a few days and this year we'll be out there for 5 days- pretty pumped!

Maybe you don't want to tell your buddies she went 3 for 3. Maybe you want to turn the story around, but just don't mention anthing when she is around wink.gif

I wouldn't be complaining bout her liking to the BPS. I think you would be getting a better deal!

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping

      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
