      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 .

Picking pup

Recommended Posts

huntnfish

A friend of mine studded out his lab to a friend of his and now he has the pick of the litter which he is giving to me. My friends dog is about 85 pounds at 2 years old and the female was about 55-60 pounds. I am planning on a female and would like it to get to be about the same size as its mother. My question is, how would I figure out which are going to get big and which will be in the size that I am looking for(65-75 pounds)? This is my first dog and I will be using it for pheasants and some grouse. I might also take him out for waterfowl a couple times a year but I hunt fields so having a dog isn't that big a deal. Thanks in advance for your help.

If you can figure it out please let me know. I have had the biggest puppies turn out to be skinny speed freaks and smaller pups turn out to be muscled out bruisers. I think you pick out a good breeding and cross your fingers.

Yep... there's is no hard and fast guarantees around that will determine the outcome of any pup... Just take a good, healthy, inquisitive pup and all else should work out in the end...

Good Luck!

Having had many dogs over the years if you are getting the pick of the litter I would recommend selecting the female that selects you. Having said that I should explain it some. Every once and a while you get very lucky and get a pup that picks you to be his or her master. If this happens to you then you are a lucky man. These are the kind of dogs that your very wish is there command and they cannot do enough to make you happy. This being your first dog it would be great if you will be so lucky as to get one. They will spoil you forever. I hope your friend is not going to pick a female out for you and then just give her to you. You should go to the pups and just sit down by them. They all may come to you or just a few, let them discover you. If you are lucky you may get a few interested in you and maybe a female will be one of them. I would keep in mind that this is going to be your new kid for the next 10 years or so. Better to have one that like you then one you will be yelling at.. I am sure others will chime in but I have been lucky to have been picked several times, I have two at my feet right now! good luck..

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
