      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 .

Metro and sorounding area waterfowl reports

Recommended Posts

Hey so hows hunting been on public hunting land in the metro areas? I have been hunting a little bit. Managed to get a bird or two on rice lake near savage but overall poor on that lake. the sky busting at ducks over 70 yards is unbelievable. if they just let the birds come in it would be much better.

Monticello area (have not hunted pelican yet) has been spotty. Hunted once this week, and once last week. Went out this morning, and saw a total of two ducks. Last week, same spot saw over 100, with only a couple of flocks giving me a look. Managed 4 mallards last week, none this week. Seems very slow based on my past experiences.

70 yards! That was a close shot compared to the 100+ yard shots I saw on that lake Monday morning.

Last year I saw some skybuster shots taken on trumpeter swans. Thankfully they missed.

It can get pretty bad out there.

Saw a ton on Mud Hen durring opener. Was out in bayport a few weeks ago, and it was bone dry and very few ducks, a couple of geese. We need a cold snap to push those migrating birds down from Canada.

i was pass shooting at rice today. saw a group of 8 birds bugging out high from the lake about 20 minutes before sunset and a large group of geese in the stratosphere on the walk back to the car. That was it. I was there for the last hour and half of shooting time and heard about 6 shots on the lake. 3 of them sounded like finisher shots.
