      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 .

Great Pics. I love to see young hunters having a great time. Also looks like a very nice size grouse.

Is that a youth 870 he is using? I have a youth 870 my dad bought me about 15 years ago that I still use once in awhile. Out off all the guns in my collection that one brings back the most memories.

Thanks for sharing smile.gif

Very nice, a memory that will stick with you both forever.

Best guess is that picture will be in a frame and on his dresser for a long time.

870 youth JUNIOR model the smallest 20 ga. remington makes.

He likes that gun. Carries it himself the whole way. Loads and unloads it himself. Always checks that the safety is on. Im glad we chose this over the mossberg.

Ok I assumed that you had to be 12 and complete a gun course for all hunting. I did not know it was big game only. I bet that little gun would be awesome for even an adult to carry into the grouse woods. I have a little sxs spanish made hammered 20 that is short and is a great shooter and light to carry. It was an old gun that just sat in my father in law's closet for years. it needed a firing pin and the chokes were too tight. New pins and opened the barrels up and many a grouse has fallen cool.gif

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
