      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 .

Duck Season - All But Over For Me

Recommended Posts

Wow, looking at the calendar and all the things I have going on, it looks like the waterfowl season is all but over for me this year. Busy this weekend, all kinds of work stuff next week, then deer hunting on the 11, 12, 13 and 14 of Nov., then busy with work again, then leaving to spend a week with my wife's folks out in California. Season ends 2 days after we return. frown.gif

Oh well, it's been a great season this year!!!!!! This has been the best hunting I've had and most ducks I've seen in probably 10 years. Maybe if I'm lucky I'll get out one more time, but looking at my schedule it isn't promising.

I hope you all have a great remainder of the season. Shoot a couple of those big northern mals and 'bills for me! wink.gif

As always, enjoy your hunts and stay safe.

Basscatcher, I'm in the same boat you are. I am deer hunting the next two weekends and then who knows by third weekend everything could be iced up. Just have to wait and see. It might not be a bad thing if I don't get out duck hunting one more time, I'll just have to start chasing roosters (haven't been out yet).

Basscatcher - the ducks will certainly rest easier knowing you won't be chasing them.

I'm also calling her quits for this year. I got out 3 times and never shot at a duck. The good news is that next year can't be any worse. The only thing that has kept me going is being able to read the stories of great hunts on the web. For those of you still out there hunting, keep posting pics of the results.

I don't want to be calling it quits but I got dates with deer camp and the deer stand for the following 3 weekends.

What a tough time of year!

Is Thanksgiving weekend still open duck season again this year? Might not matter with the cold temps we are experiencing but that was one heck of a goose shoot last fall over Thanksgiving!

Last day is Nov. 28 (my b-day actually). Might have to treat myself to my own b-day gift!?!? grin.gif

There is still the late goose season, but I'm a water hunter and the lake I hunt is typically pretty solid by that time with a couple inches of ice. Time will tell though. Surprisingly I haven't seen as many geese this year after the regular waterfowl season started. Got 4 one day during the early season, then only 1 by my dad after that I believe. Got my fingers crossed for late season. wink.gif

They actually got off easy today. I only shot at about a 50% ratio. Considering how close they came in, that's pretty poor. More for the southerners I guess. smirk.gif

I told my neighbor that it was hard to leave on a day like today, especially since we hadn't gotten any geese and I was really hoping we'd see some and get a chance at some. Then low and behold when I got home I looked at my schedule and realized it was quite possibly the last hunt of the season for me. Ending on a good note, but kinda depressing too. smirk.gif

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      Told my wife I wanted to watch hooker....  she said " you aren't watching any hookers while I'm around"   rim shot.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
