      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 .

Was anyone on Pelican near Monticello this weekend? How was it?

Recommended Posts

Lots of teal and woodies before 9. Not as many ducks flying after 9 as past years. This was the first year that somebody has beaten me to our spot and they shot at way too many birds out of range. We were about 300yds away and most of the birds that they shot at flew away from us. We were off the lake at 11:30 with 2 woodies and 2 teal. Sunday was rainy and there was lightning off to the east. Loud thunder and lightning approaching forced us off by 9am. We were hit by a down pour at the landing. We never fired a shot on Sunday. The lake was down about a foot and the landing was not as crowded as it has been it the past. I will be going back on Wednesday.

We also could not get to our "Spot", The crowd was way down from last year but the shooting was on par. You would think with the price of shells that people would learn to let the ducks get closer after 2-3 boxes burned, but I guess not. 1 woodie, 1 teal Sat. none on Sunday. Only fired 4 shots total.Not a lot of ducks and only seen 4 honkers a mile up.

I had some buddies that went out there on friday and camped til the opener on saturday. They claim they shot 7 mallards?? I think they are just telling me that to make it look like it was worth the wait. He said when they left saturday that there had to have been at least 70 trucks/trailers at the landing? These guys hunted off the island, were they sky busting, if so I will have to give them some [PoorWordUsage]?
