      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 .

MN Spring '09

Recommended Posts

I won't be putting in for the spring as my step son is getting married in May and that's when I've drawn my non-res WI tag the last 2 years. I need to find a place here in MN to turkey hunt.

Sure with it wasn't so far to hunt a mountain state.......

I don't think the holidays are a problem as much as it being right after deer season and right after thanksgiving. If a person is not hunting family land or leased land its difficult to pick a zone to hunt.

I'm thinking I might try an out of state hunt this coming spring. We'll see. Anything I can do to extend my season.

I already put my application in. Great, now all you procrastinators (sp) will have more time to remember thus reducing my chances at getting drawn.

HMMM... Both my neighbor's and my last issue says Jan. 9 in the little box at the bottom of the front page. That's weird.

I had to check here instead of the DNR HSOforum to confirm though. It's more fun. smile

I will be putting my app in with my group. We are doubling in size this year. I started doing this by myself 4 years ago knowing absolutely nothing other than it sounded like a blast and was a way to extend my hunting.

Now I've hunted with 4 different people and plan on applying with 3 of them this year as a group. The other is my little sister and I might end up "guiding" her and my dad for their first hunt. Its so much fun to share that passion.

Got a hot new spot in the Metro area that I was stuck hunting the late archery season last spring. Sure hope to draw an earlier tag this year. Shot the bird in my avitar there this fall.

I applied to my usual spot in 347. I had to balance the fishing opener and the weekend/weekday dilemma but I think "D" season will be a good choice, knock on wood for the weather (I got caught in snow in "C" last year which wrecked my hunt). I always have a Stillwater spot, maybe a Taylors Falls spot if I was really hard up, and a couple places within 15 minutes of home in case I don't get drawn (Scott county). I kind of like making my turkey hunt a destination trip, but there is something to be said about being close to home and sleeping in your own bed.

Get those applications in!

Just one final reminder that spring turkey applications are due today. Don't forget to apply to hunt or at the least get a preference point. Or you'll have to wait a whole year to apply again!

Good luck!!!

    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!  
    • Utube Randy Newberg spring bear hunts. He has a ton of DIY info on spring bear hunting
    • I've never used electric jacks, or hydro. I've heard they are pretty nice, and guys like them. It will be interesting to see how you feel about them after a season or two. I'd like to hear your input on them after you've used them awhile.
    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
