      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 .

I had a thing for work but my bro (Flowage Tamer) hit the Aberdeen / Redfield area and along with a buddy of ours managed 25 geese in two days of sneaking/ pass shooting. Actually they hunted all day Friday and until 5pm yesterday. They shot everything--some juvies, a couple nice blues, some nice adult snows, and some rosses geese. I had never seen them up close before so when they got back it was awesome to compare them. I'm hoping to go this upcoming weekend if the birds are still around and I can find some buddies to go with. Would love to do a decoy hunt.

They said the snowline was around Watertown I think.

Sartell- If you get a group together and head out there let me know and we can exchange cell numbers. My group of 8 are leaving early Thursday morning for our first 4 day decoy hunt. We more than likely will be hunting that same area as I have a lot of land to hunt in that area. We can exchange bird info and maybe meet up in the evening for a little night life! smile.gif

find where they are feeding in two fields that are within a mile apart and sit in a ditch or fence row. that worked good for us. or just try and seek up on them when they are in a pond or out in the field. if possible try using a cow decoy. they work also.

When we were in North Dakota last year, we watched two guys sneak up on about a 1000 honkers. They had a big mirror with handles on the back and they both walked behind that as they snuck up on them. It looked pretty funny but they got about 20 yards from them when they let loose. Defienitly going to try it out sometime.

My brother in law was saying that his buddy makes the mirrors, and I was thinking about trying one out.

I hunted SD from 3:30 on the 9th until 11:30 on the 11th with a budy of mine and we were able to take 40 doing sneeks. This was around the Tyndal area. I was also out there from the 15th through the 17th and hunted east and northeast of Huron. We only got 10 while doing sneeks but was able to sit in some dekoys for a day and five of us shot 31. There was geese all over the place and so were the hunters. I stayed at the dakota inn in Huron and it was full with hunters. Two of the guys that I was hunting with stayed until the 20th and said there were still a lot of birds just northeast of Huron.

I would like more info on these mirrors. Where can you get them? How big are they? Do they work for honkers?? Any info would be appreciated. They sound interesting. Thanks

Do a search for the shadow shield and you can get an idea of what one looks like.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?

      Fuses are for fire protection. If you're willing to risk a fire in your boat if something goes awry, have at it. Your insurance company would be happy to have a good reason to keep all the premiums you've paid and refuse your claim. Hopefully no one will get injured or die in the fire.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      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
