      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 .

Ashby area waterfowl

Recommended Posts

I'm heading up to Ashby this weekend for the pheasant opener and to do a little duck hunting in the mornings. Usually we have done really well in this area later in the season.

does anyone have any reports on how they did last weekend on the ducks?

Didn't talk to anyone but for all the shooting I heard on Sunday Morning, somebody did well. Complete opposite from Saturday, heard very little shooting. Lots of corn left in the fields, roosters could be tough.

Decent for us. Mostly teal, but had mallard, woodies, ringbill, butterball and gadwall. Saw redheads and of course cans. No geese, but saw an average amount. We had a good opener - not limits but a good variety and plenty of shooting. Good luck! Do you stay at Ashby Resort, or with frineds? If the resort tell Mike and Diane hi from Box's smile

Watch for Cans -- Christina has a bunch sitting out there so I'm guessing they'll get kicked around a bit this weekend. Good luck fellas - we've been hunting there for 25+ years and this is about as many birds as we've ever gotten for the opener. Normally its better as the season goes on.

Good to hear christina is slowly starting to come back and hold birds again i can remember around 4-6 years ago when there wasnt a single bird on it except a couple flocks of coots

Opener was good to us but yesterday was dead. Nothing flying to speak of. No early diver flocks or mid-morning flights. Almost no shooting, maybe with more pressure on the weekend they will move.

This is the weekend for pressure, everybody with a dog will be out chasing Roosters. With a bit of paitence every slough will have someone walking around it putting up ducks, why, in search of the wily Rooster. Ducks should be moving all day. I know of several bow hunters who will sit all weekend because of the pheasant hunters moving deer. The nice thing about it, is I'm on days off, no work until Monday night, time to work on camp meat, duck soup and pheasant parmesean. Good luck to all and be safe and kind to your fellow hunters.

One thing I noticed on christina is that the weeds are gone this year. alst year the weeds were thick all the way out and i mean thick. This year 30 yards out and they stop. I think that could harm the ducks out there for feeding becuase thats why they come is to feed on those underwater weeds. I know we had a poor opening weekend out there it was bad.
