      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 .

there is a really small public field south of stillwater it was corn last year... they only harvest half the field.

carlos avery might have some but it could be within refuge areas. get online and do some homework search the site for "recreation compass" you can use that to search by city and drag etc. until you find clearly marked WMAs.

then you can click on the "i" icon on the top toolbar... then just click on the WMA you want "info" about and you can view regulation info and an interactive map. On this map crop lands are clearly marked as darked brown so you can see "public fields" Good Luck and Good Hunting

To be honest, to expect anything worth while w/in 30 miles of Lakeville as far as public field hunting goes,,, good luck...

You need to put some miles under your butt and do some scouting and get to knocking on some doors of landowners. Its not cheap or easy.

If you are willing to hunt water you might get a little more lucky and not have to drive so far, but often you are crowded, have to time the migration, or will have a tough time replicating the numbers that can be stacked up on a good wheat field this time of year.

Good hunters don't just have cool gear, they usually they are the most dedicated hard scouting bunch out there. Or.. they are like my friends and they just cling on and let me run around like an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly and find all the "ins" for them...

    • Feel free to explain how you keep food out of the danger zone while using sous vide when you are cooking at temperatures in the danger zone for many hours.   
    • I have a feeling PIYA is an acronym. Maybe it stands for Pain In Your A@@.
    • Yes and it sucks. Putting a pro view in Lp mode in shallow water means you are going to have a narrower cone. (Because LP mode is low power which is a 50% cut in power which less power equals narrower cone on a pro view)  To get a wide cone angle and sharp returns in shallow water is impossible with a pro view. To get a narrow cone in deep water if you need the gain up it is impoosible with a pro view. basicly the pro view cant do what a person wants. Which is a wide beam low gain/lp mode in shallow water and a narrow cone higher gain in deep water. 
    • Ya! What Del said!  " had a thing on the floor ..."  
    • They been around a long time; make lots of appliances. Saw lots of their stuff in the Dayton's/Macy's.
    • Never heard of that brand but it is a good price.
    • Why do we need those new fangled solenoid things? My 41 Plymouth had a thing on the floor that worked the starter.  And another one for the high beams.  Bunch of sissies!
    • no tanks...............
    • That's exactly what I have in this system. Aluminum insect screen around a 2x2 frame that sits in the blocks along the perimeter of the interior of the box if you see in the construction pictures.
