      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 .

Breeders with Kelloggs lines?

Recommended Posts

Since Kelloggs isn't want they used to be after Mayo passed, buying from them isn't a option based on what I heard.

So what breeders in MN and surrounding areas have labs with Kelloggs lines?

Im interested in this as well. I bought a puppy last fall that has kellog on both sides. That isn't the reason I got her but it did help a little. We took her along last fall and she seemed to catch on pretty quickly she even pointed a few which I wasn't expecting to happen so soon.

I new Mayo pretty well. We did business with him in trading pups for printing work. My father and I have had four dogs from him and every one was/is a stud.

My father currently has a male directly from his kennels and is a wonderful dog. Outstanding retriever and pointer. He is a 85 lb yellow male. Flat out great dog and retriever. He had a female just pass away two weeks ago due to age from kelloggs too.

I Have a choc. male thats mother side is basically all kelloggs lines. That is why I got him. He is a machine. Doesn't point but has an unbelievable nose, is super obedient etc and a giant sweetheart. Retrieves hundreds of birds a year. Some have bad things to say about Kelloggs and maybe he wasn't perfect but...his dogs were OUTSTANDING!!

any questions about him or his dogs I may be able to help..as mentioned-got to know him, his mother goldie and his some hugh fairly well.

We have been debating getting all the necessary health clearances for my dad's male to breed him one time. We need one just like him. We have never seen a lab point like he does. Points pheasants while on return with duck in his mouth. Too funny.

Hey guys I just bought a pup that is pretty much solid Kellogg lines. I have never trained a pointing lab before and I am curious if you guys have any tips that would help me out? I have had and trained a vizsula so I do have some experience traing a pointer however I was curious if there is anything different that I should be doing.

We bought a dog a couple of years ago whose sire was out of Majestic Oaks. Looking back into that lineage, I see quite a few Black Forest and Trieven dogs as well. Our dog was also VERY easily trained and intelligent as well. We have been very happy with him.

-Training the Pointing Labrador by Julie Knutson:

This is Julie’s new book that was just released this year and adds much more info than her original book (The Pointing Labrador). This book covers from puppy hood to advanced training. Julie helps the trainer get “into” the dogs head to help understand what the dog is thinking, which no other training material I have come across does. One big thing to note is that this book is not just for “Pointing Labs”. This is a good book for any dogs….with it’s primary focus on retrievers. It runs around $50 and is only available from Julie’s site. This book can be found by a Google search for “gunclub-labs”.

    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
    • Dude, it's ok shes not on here.  Save that for Facebook! 
    • If you want to be happy for the rest of your life make a Finnish woman your wife. 
    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
