      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'm looking at coming up to ND this weekend to plant some deer food plots. How wet is the ground and has there been alot of recent rain in the Leonard area? This would be approx. 50 SW of fargo.

Thanks for the info.

That area has received a decent amount of rain Tom... I think you'll be ok. Further south and west of there has not received as much, but a decent amount.

If you go to this HSOforum: NDAWN you can take a look and see how much rain they've recieved in Leonard, the temps, soil temp, etc for a given date or range of dates.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the offer Scoot. Carter and his wife along with a few others will also be there and they will all be willing to go to work. I figure one good day and we should have it all done. One food plot will be for my handicapped hunter who I will guide this fall.

I just got home and got my planting done and man, they could use some rain. For this time of year, I have never seen the Sheyenne River that low. I could walk across it anywhere I pleased.

Glad to hear it went well. If you're headed back there this summer, let me know- I'll happily run out and help.

Yep, the Sheyenne is really low! It rolls through here not too far from my house. I might spend a fair bit of time chasing cats on it this summer- easier to pinpoint them in some of the deeper stretches when it gets really low.

I talked to a farmer in Harvey and he said they could really use some rain.

He told me my secret pot hole was now dry. mad

Last year there was a good two feet of water in it in October.

I was just up to Harvey this past weekend Sifty... lots of dried up pot holes - lots of dried up ponds everywhere.

Things are pretty dry up there.. as they are down here in SE ND... but not like Harvey & West.

Yep, it's amazing how fast it dries up. We had people talking about all the "dang rain" a few weeks ago and now they're begging for it... A couple inches across the entire state would be a good deal for sure.

Hopefully things will change and we get a little more moisture.

It seems like the tread has been dry for us for 4 years now.

harvey lee -

Things should be looking up for your plots - in Lisbon we received 1.65" of rain last night...

Not sure what Leonard got, but it was more than 1/2" at a minimum.

I talked to a fellow by leonard a week ago and he tells me it has rained there 3 times in the past ten days. The deer should be happy along with the Sheyenne river.

    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • 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.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.
