      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 .

Too Many Rules

Recommended Posts

A guy cannot keep boat on his own shoreline, if vegetation on shoreline to conceal boat. Read below.

Per DNR Regulations

"During open waterfowl seasons, a person may not leave an unattended boat used for hunting waterfowl in public waters between sunset and one hour before sunrise unless the boat is adjacent to private land under control of the person and the water does not contain a natural growth of vegetation sufficient to partially conceal a hunter or a boat."

Stop the madness... Regulations for a duck blind on water are also excessive. 6 duck limit is excessive(no one needs to shoot 6 ducks to have a good time), has anyone looked at the Dakota and MN survey, numbers are down. Finally, 2 wood ducks, whereas every other state in the Union allows 3 this year.

What is the purpose/intent of this rule. Does leaving a boat preempt a public spot? Does it give an owner an unfair advantage? If its pulled up on private shore in heavy cover is it still not ok?Hans

If I understand correctly, if there is vegetation(cattails-bullrush), thick enough to conceal a boat, on most waters, that is considered public and anyone can hunt it as long as they are in water deep enough to float a boat.

Flip side is, the game warden would really have to be on a rampage to write you up. I can't say I've ever heard of it happening.

As for the six duck limit, stop at two if you want. If it were 10 ducks I'd be happy with that. I'll take and consume what the law allows.

Why are you crying about 6 ducks then pizzed that you can only shoot two woodducks? Just please do us all a favor and hang up your waders. It's obvious you cant be happy either way.

and the same length season, ice should shut down our season and

nothing else. They go south and get pounded everyday becuase they never have to worry about freeze up. Our season could be

be done by nov 1st if weather is cold enough.

    • Went for a nice walk in the woods Sunday. Got one out of two hours of walking. Flushed a few but too many leaves yet. There's birds out their but I think the cool, wet spring affected brood survival.  
    • I donated these shells this week to an outdoor organization. All 500 of 'em!
    • So, Sunday mid morning I'm in a pretty good Walleye bite, two fish from a limit. And I stop to run in and watch the Vikings game.  note to self: Get head examined this week!  No stringers-right!
    • Not sure but if you throw some drab paint on it-it's a Duck Boat!
    • If I were to go back it wouldn't even have been a question.  Hydraulic is definitely the answer.
    • Opening day for grouse in the arrowhead I missed 3 birds and did not shoot at 4 due flying low over Finn. It was foggy raining but I did see 4 moose and a big black wolf. According to my phone I hiked 10.7 miles. sunday started off cloudy but the sun came out. The first trail about 30 yards from the car Finn flushed a grouse it flies up and straight down the trail bang one for one. Finn flushed 3 more birds on that trail but never saw them. The next trail we were walking down a grouse flew down in front of us and the grouse tried to hide in the clover in the middle of the tire tracks. Finn flushed it and went straight up and landed in a tree. Haha dumb bird I made a nice head shot and Finn made the retrieve.   We put on 9.8 miles but I left my phone in the car on two trails. Finn flushed a few more birds but I never fired a shot as they were to low or never seen them. For grouse numbers as high as the dnr said they must not have a great hatch or something. I was hoping to get some young dumb birds for Finn but we did not find them.
    • Tango at training? Good luck Zach. I am getting my duck gear ready.
    • I am going grouse hunting in the morning hopefully I can manage one or two for dinner I will be dogless this trip
