      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 couldn't wait anymore so I called the DNR this morning and me and a buddy tried for 2nd season this year and where in baby!!!

I've seen more big bucks on their feet when it is raining out, Don't let a little rain stop you. It can be some of the best hunting you'll ever see.

A little rain??? Last year it started to rain while setting up the camper. It never stopped until we got home. Not a drizzle!! It rained hard. By the time I walked out and set up my stand I was soaked through my rain gear. Only good thing was it was warm and Yes there were deer moving.

No offense man! I was trying to let you and others know that these times when there is unfavorable weather happening that it can mean some of the best hunting. What kind of rain gear do you have? I don't think I want to buy any of that this year. wink

My rain gear is older but still works sometimes. The walking through grass in the woods soaked my boots and sox. By the time I got to where I was going to sit I was soaked from rain and also sweat. I even had an umbrella attached to the tree but since I was soaked before the umbrella was just to keep the rain from pounding on me. The heat in my camper quit at about 2:00am so dry clothes were not available. On the last day we did drive around on the road that were so washed out it felt like you were driving down a rumble strip. We did mark about six different spots on my GPS and will give them a try this year.

I'm in. 3 or 4 years in a row. My buddy who applied for the first time did not get drawn. I repeat, did not get drawn so some of you may not get drawn either. More people must have applied this year.

Just checked the DNR site...I'll see you there first season!

I applied as a group(two of us) two years ago and did not get in. Did not apply last year. Says I now have 2 preference points as a group and also 2 solo. Should be an interesting experience. Good luck to all.

Just go to the Link listed in Jameson's post...that will take you to the DNR HSOforum with the lotto results for the first hunt. The last part of the web address is :campripley1.html. Just change the number 1 to a 2 and leave everything else the same. Hit enter and it will take you to the 2nd weekend lotto result.

I would assume the DNR is still in the process of getting their HSOforum up and running with the results and this explains the confusion.

I was denied for the 3rd time in a row!!! I now have a preference level of 3, and a group preference level of only 1 cause a new guy joined our group. Should have kept him out!!!

fishinmajishin if you applied as a group it goes by the guy thats lowest on the totem pole with preference points. Good Luck to you guys!

Nope, I applied solo this year. Wasn't expecting to get in. I don't understand why they say I have 2 PP's as a group...I only applied that way once, 2 years ago and didn't get drawn. I did not apply last year either way. It also says I have 2 solo points. Oh well, guess it doesn't matter, I'll be in there lookin for Mr. big. That is if he aint hangin 2 weeks from now!

    • Was in Joes sporting goods last night and they had the 8" K drill for $219
    • Sounds good to me.
    • It should be as long as the wma butts up to the lake,
    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
