      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 .

meat eating ducks

Recommended Posts

Ok I just took th cover off the ol house boat and spent most of the afternoon on deck, I was lucky enough to 4 spot hawks 3 eagles, 2 falcons (one diving over the boat) and 3 instances of ducks fighting over large dead shad and appearing to feed off them. now I suspect they were actually eating the slim off the fish not the meat, but in any case I have never seen such behavior. Has any one else ? Are the ducks evolving into a mighty new super breed of preditors? ok I jest, I tried to get some pics with my cell and binocs but they turned out terrible. Sorry.

I have seen meat eating ducks before. I was Striper fishing on Lake Norfork in Arkansas. We got back to the dock and the guide was cleaning the days catch and throwing the scraps in the water. The ducks[Mallards] would come up and eat all the fish. They were extreemly large ducks.

Yeah, that's not a surprise to me. I've fed mallards nightcrawlers, leeches, and minnows all the time. When I was a little kid I actually caught a mallard while casting a mepps spinner. I casted in his vicinity and he went in for the kill!

It'll only be a matter of time before people start blaming mallards on the downfall of the next great walleye lake. I can see it now.
