      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 .

Listening problem

I have a one year old brittany that doesn't listen very well to come when he is running loose at home. When he is in the field he is a totally different dog and listens pretty well. Any ideas what I can do to cure this or will he get better with age?

I am a big believer in electronic collars. That may be something you may want to invest in.

By this time your pup should know all the basic house commands like his name, come, heal, sit, stay, no bark and down. Remember he is still just a pup and you need to continue short obedience training sessions which include positive reinforcement and lots of praise. I have a 3 year old Britt and have come to learn this: the breed is soft handling, extremely intelligent, high energy, eager to please and enjoys repetition/routines (typical with most pointing breeds.)

I introduced my Britt to the e-collar when he was one year old. I was confident he knew and understood not only the obiedence commands mentioned earlier but my field commands of hup (change left to right direction), hup hup (reverse/turn around and head in the opposite direction), too far (stop and wait) and fetch. We had gone through six months of yard and field work utilizing only a check cord and some planted chukar.

The time had come and we were both ready...he understood what I wanted and what was required. I wanted nothing more than to be free of the dreaded check cord. It only took about three low stimulus corrections with the e-collar out in the field one day at a game farm for him to realize the importance of compliance with my commands.

I guess, in a nut shell, what I am trying to say is that sometimes a pups drive to hunt and chase can over power their ability to obey and comply with known commands.

You will notice a big change in your pups behavior after his first experience with the e-collar. But wait until you spend time properly training your pup, your pup understands the commands and use your common sense and apply the technology properly. You should never have to use the collar in your house and will probably only use the vibrate feature on the collar when you are in the field after your pups second full hunting season.

Hope this helps and please remember I am not a dog training professional...but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night!

How many other people deal with the dog at home compared to the number of people in the field? IMO the pup recognizes you as the dominate one while in the field, but doesn't see that or is confused as to the rules of the house. Very easy to happen when there are multiple people at the house. I had a similar issue with a lab a few years ago. I had to train my roomate, and then refresh the pup with the house rules. Within a couple days, all was fixed.

I live with 3 other college buddies and have a 10 month old lab. In the yard, she sometimes will not come or go inside when I want her to but will come and do everything just about perfect in the field during training and last weekend duck hunting (her first time and she was WAY better than expected).

The point being I am in the same situation you guys are but my roommates are also good at making her behave and they also hunt with me and I think that helps as well.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
