      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 .

one-year duck pond

Recommended Posts

A temporary dam has created what hopefully will be a duck slough this year. The dam will be removed next year. I am planning on trying to get some millet going around the slough this year.

Is there anything else cheap/easy that I can do?

I'd toss a few logs / brush in there to have something for the ducks to loaf on, especially if there are wood ducks in the area.

Build a blind and pile some natural vegetation around it / plant some stuff on and around it now so any birds in there this summer are used to it.

Good luck!

Smartweed would be another one to try. It is like candy to them.

Thanks for the replies all. The pond is fed by farm field drains, so I don't think it could support the freshwater shrimp-to dirty. I may have to get some duckweed or something. Also it is a fairly treed area. It seems to really be attracting the woodies. Well, at least before this refreeze. Is their anything to do that's woodie specific? I believe there is natural nesting areas in the area, but is it to late to add houses for this year?

No, it is not to late to put up some boxes. They just started to use mine this week. Usually the rule of thumb is, as soon as you start seeing them, they start using the boxes. I kno0w with my experience that the sooner the better though.
