      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Bluebills numbers

Recommended Posts

If you read Niskanens story this week, it is about bluebills numbers. Basically about what is "real" in the bulebill population number game. Two respected biologists show that bluebill numbers are actually stable, or at least not declining in the huge way Washington is trying to suggest, and this is using the FWS numbers.

I can't post link, but easy to find.

As talked about here already, a one bluebill limit is going to make mornings a lot trickier for those who hunt divers. Granted, I have not seen as many bluebills the last several years, so I am not sure what is going on or who I believe. But either way, hunters are not the reason for not seeing bluebills these days.

Anybody see lots of bluebills the past few years? Not looking for spots, just wondering if people are seeing them.

I actually seem to see more in the spring on the river than I do in the fall. Hunting in western MN I've been seeing a ton more ringers these last few years compared to bluebills, which used to be the bread-and-butter species for duck hunters in that area.
