      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 .

Wow lets see... Delta Marsh, Sea Ducks in ME or AK, flooded timber in AR, Argentina, pounding some field geese in Saskatch, I could go on but that's enough dreams for several lifetimes.

Jeepguy, you nailed my dream hunt, sea ducks on the coast, how do they taste?

Fritz, I have been to New Zealand several times and talked about the duck hunting with local people and it seems they hunt them by pass shooting and setting up small decoy spreads in open pastures and grassy slopes, evidently the ducks just bomb right in. The ones I seen were almost totally pitch black, big, and traveled in small family groups. I forgot to ask if they even migrate, with the weather being warm most of the year.

I never got to taste one. The guides tell me they are terrible. Here is what is done with them. The head guide's cousin comes over and breasts them out, then he takes the meat to the local soup kitchen. The breast meat is then ground up with pork sausage and added to soup for the soup kitchen. I wanted to try some but they saud it is unbearable to eat by itself. I guess I could of made that assumption, because when you finally get these 7 lb birds in the boat the stink like fish in a big way.
