      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 .

Cooking Breakfast in the Duck Boat ???

Recommended Posts

I'd like to here the Do's and dont's. I figured it would really add something special to youth waterfowl day and the kids would love it. I've never tried this before but have heard of others doing it. Some tips would be great. I'll be hunting out of a 14' boat and guessing attempting this in shallow water.

just bring everything you use at home for cooking and add a fire ext. I cook all the time in my boat while hunting.

Obviously you'll need a heat source.

The old standby of a Coleman type stove is what we've used in the past. This year though, I'll probably have the obtion of using the NEW propane two burner (smaller, cleaner, and flatter).

As in camping situations, stability is the key. If your not totally level and stable its dangerous. So find a very thick stand of weeds or solid mud or ground to beach your boat in.

After that its all up to you:

- One great idea my dad reminded me of is the "Omelet in Bag"

It's a good one: just add the eggs, meat, veggies, and seasonings into each individual omelet bag so everybody gets their favorite. They fit easily into a lunch cooler, don't matter if they get shaken up either...

- Or... They used to sell a pancake mix in a small plastic container (16oz?) that just required adding water to a line, shaking it up, and pouring. We generally added blueberries, but you could try chocolate chips, etc. Extremely simple.

- Or... Last year my nephew stated that this was the best breakfast he'd ever had: I make one pack of sausage links (then cut up), added scrambled eggs, cheese, and pre-diced orange and red bell peppers and cooked. We severed it on tortillas and had breakfast burritos. I'd say you could save your self some effort in the boat and pre cook/dice the sausages (or bacon) and bring them in a bag w/ the pre diced onions, peppers, cheese, etc. then just add to the bag of eggs and tah dah... Your the Emeril of the Swamp!!!

JUST BEWARE>>> It usually goes w/o saying that the minute you crack out he vittles, the ducks start flying in from nowhere.

I've got an old sunflower style propane heater. I'll probably just flip the stand over and figure out a way to fasten it to the boat for safety reasons. I'm thinking about trying some kind of a breakfast sandwich becuase it seems like something the kids can handle.

Nothing better than cooking in the blind on a cold crisp morning! But as stated once you get cooking the birds always seem to show up. As stated you may want to bring along a fire extinguisher, why from experiance. Last yr me and my brother had a huge flock of red legs drop down from the clouds on us and in the excitement to grab our guns we hit the stove over and started some of the rafia grass stapled to our blind on fire. What a site us trying to put out the fire and birds locked up then flairing from all the commotion! We laughed about it for some time but in all seriousness it could of turned out worse, so be carefull!

    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
    • I made some maybe 5 years ago and put one on a tree and the other at the end peak on a garage. The one on the garage had bats in the first year, the one on the tree finally had some in last year. 2 different designs so that may have made a difference. I made 1 for my daughter 3 years ago and put it on the garage and they used it the 2nd year. Mine are black- hers a dark brown. Don't put them in an area where bat dump can be a problem.  Good luck with them.
    •   Thanks. I get a kick out of people saying they need to brush in their blinds.  This was right in the middle of a corn field on it's highest spot, as visible as can be.
    •   Congrats Don, like the corn field picture.
    • Yep, excellent suggestions fellas!  If it's nice out this evening (supposed to be) we're going to go give it a try.  I'll bring lots of snacks, camera, binocs, and maybe even a tablet for her to play on.  
    • Not exactly bird related, but close enough. Do any of you have a bat house? I want to get one, but don’t exactly know where to put it. I see that DNR mounts them on long polls at boat launches and campgrounds, but I don’t really want to go that route. I’m wondering if a tree, or the side of my garage would suffice? Is there any benefits to painting them black? And how successful are they at attracting bats? How long did it take for them to show up? Amazon sells bat house attractant, but it’s pretty spendy.
