      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 .

Sitting at work with the fever

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else having an absolutely impossible time trying to stay productive at work this week? I've been "sitting in the woods" all day and I haven't left my desk. Can't wait to hit the road Thursday night!!!!

Normally I can't get anything done but I am slammed right now and on Vacation all next week so I am busting arse! The only good thing about that is taking some time out to visit this HSOforum and the time flys by.

I'm with you too...

I've been fortunate enough that I've been able to hunt nearly every weekend since early goose season. If not chasing birds around with dog and my buddies, I've sat in the woods with my bow.

My wife made a comment that she feels widowed because I've been gone alot hunting this season Luckily enough I've put the blame back on the Minnesota DNR, and tell her..."They set the dates for these 'Openers'. So don't blame me!" laughlaugh

I told those in my office right up front I'd be pretty worthless this week, fortunately they didn't say: What's new?

Also fortunately I'm bowhunting every night but Wednesday & have Thursday & Friday off to bowhunt.

BigWade, I had a son right before the season last year as well and only hunted one day. I am so excited for this season because I have 8 days scheduled in the next 3 weeks. Work seems so slow, but watching the weather and this site is keeping my focus on my computer rather than walking around talking about it.

Here is how my opening morning is going to go (so I have planned): Get into the stand around 5am. Sit and watch all the other folks pile into the woods around 6:15am and push all the deer to me. At 7:27am a 12 point, 165 class deer is going to approach from the left, presenting the perfect shot opportunity. And the Hornady SST is going to do the job allowing me to take all day to get him out of the woods, register and brag to all my buddies about it. That is the script, I will let you know how the play turns out.

its way to hard, i took off friday because i heard of a nice 10 out where i hunt so im gonna try and end my season early with my bow on friday

I do the same thing before every opener, I find it impossible to do anything the Friday before opener so I might as well get there early and hunt.

Friday is going to be like your kid's last day at school. Nothing is going to get done.

I'm ducking early if there isn't enough to do.

I told my wife I didn't feel well this morning she asked what was wrong and I said, my neck is swelling up and I keep seeing deer, said I might have to go up to the farm today, didn't go over so well.... grin so I'll just sit here and day dream about it I guess

    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair. 
    • Cullen comes back on a very cap friendly deal.  1yr 1mil.
    • Manky, I have used dog food with grease as a filler and it works great! No issue but you  don't want to add to much grease and make all the dog food to soggy. 
    • A guy can never have to many decoys!
    • Boar, in past years you have posted that you use dog food at some bait sites, with grease on it, how does it work? Thanks minky
    • Anyone having any action at their bear baits? I have one bear coming in.
    • It seems like summer just got here and already there are signs of it ending. In the north a few maple trees are just starting to show some fall colors. A pair of bucks were seen this week, one still in velvet antlers and the other had already shed. The late summer yellows of tansy, black-eyed Susans and goldenrod speak of shorter days to come.Continued rain showers in the last week, especially across the north, are keeping river systems at higher than normal levels for mid-August. Brown trout fishing continues to pick up on the Bois Brule River. The catfish bite is on on the Wisconsin River in central Wisconsin with anglers landing good number of channel catfish. Some walleye, smallmouth bass, catfish and drum are being caught in the Peshtigo and Menominee rivers. Anglers have had good success on both the Fox and Wolf rivers catching northern pike, walleye, catfish and panfish.On Green Bay, anglers fishing for walleye on the west shore from the mouth of the Pensaukee River to Oconto are finally getting on to fish, while along the east shore success was more mixed with about half the boats reporting harvesting a few walleye while others did not catch any. Anglers targeting smallmouth bass along Door County had success in water ranging from 4 to 20 feet. In Sturgeon Bay perch fishing has been pretty good with some anglers catching their 15 fish bag limit including some larger 12-inch perch. .
    • I prefer and shoot 1 3/4 oz of 6's which will whack anything out to 50-60 yards
    • that does look good Duffman!!!!
