      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 .

Haven't heard much on ND reports? We are heading there in 3 weeks. Sounds like we are going a day early to do some scouting and to make sure our spots still have water in them... laugh.gif

ND report, we POUNDED the birds.

Seen more birds on one slough than I ever have in my life.

They got up to stretch there wings and they cast a shadow on us. UNREAL to say the least.

Just remember if you are going the week of Oct. 16th-20th that you must be on private land due to the resident pheasant opener week.

We have our spots lined up on private land for that week.

ND residents are some of the nicest people I have ever met.

Lots of geese in the area. Didn't spen much time after them, we where there for the duck hunting mainly.

We will pound the geese when we go back on the 19th.

Sounds fun...!! I have been going to ND for 5 years now and it's just amazing how many birds you see/shot. I live in southern MN and there aren't a ton of birds in the area. I'm counting the days!! Hopefully are go-to spots are still wet.

I think it depends on where in ND you are headed. We've gone to North Central part for many years and from what I hear from reports, we'll have our work cut out just finding some water to hunt. We like to hunt small sloughs and the info I get is they are pretty much dried up. Some life-long locals have told me they have seen sloughs dry that the've never seen dry before.

Anyone have any first hand reports that are any different?

Nope... things are very dry in ND in general... I've only lived in ND now for 9 years, but they are the driest I've seen things in some times... a new record for grass fires in a lot areas this year...

Just got back from central ND. Some puddle ducks and geese around, few divers. Water conditions were a little drier than last year but there were plenty of potholes around.

I would agree with you, I am originally from ND and most my friends are still there and I was going to make a special waterfowl trip, but this is like the mid - late 80's. Tough, guys give it 5-8 years and the cycle will come back and then....HAMMER TIME....I miss those good ol days

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
