      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 .

Rapids is a good place to go, but there definitely will be a crowd. It is also a crazy walk to get down in there. I suggest traveling light. If you do go, go early and try to get one of the small points that jut out into the water. If the water level is down you might have to do some mudding to get out to where the birds will be.

Good Luck

I never hunted rapids lake.. duck hunting is enough work without the long walk. There is a slough in louisville swamp on the far south side of the unit close to Jordan that you can drive to that can be ok early season.. you need a boat there, its deep. If you are using an inflatable I would be very careful with all the lumber.

Rice lake by the bloomington ferry bridge is also a good place to hunt, but there is no shortage of hunters there. Beavers often dam up the creek access to the lake so an inflatable would be high risk, its not too bad if the creek doesnt have a dam. Very shallow lake on the average, but very deep muck under that water.

Lots of water in Carlos avery. It has good days and bad.

I highly recommend finding a canoe or something a bit more durable for hunting. That water is cold for a rubber boat subject to puncture.

bring your billy club and some good walking shoes, a good idea would be to bring a deer cart to put all your decoys and things on to get stuff down there, but the only drawback on that would be pulling that thing back up the hill that goes down to the lake. it is a decent walk back there so like the guy said before, pack light and prepare for the crowds, get there EARLY...

I bowhunt rapids quite often and i have seen some mallards, no geese, but a lot of pelicans been hanging around there lately. I have even seen some bald eagles down there, i wonder if the eagles spook the ducks? On the youth hunt, the kids that went down there all had success, good luck tommorrow!
