      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 .

not happy with my floating robo duck... keeps tipping over

Recommended Posts

I have had nothing but problems with the floating mojo duck. It always seems to tip over. I have even filled my bathtub with water and moved the battery around hoping to find the right balance.....anyone else having this problem? any ideas how to correct it?

I have used the floater mojo all season with only one tip over. That happened because we were sitting in a fairly narrow channel with the wind in our face about 25 mph. Otherwise it's been great, I am usually set up with the wind at my back so it's always in the calm.

If I'm in a spot where it will be exposed to the wind, I will probably leave it at home.

Hey Zeek

I bought a floater 7 years ago whereas the guys I hunt with had robos on a stick. I retired mine 5 yrs ago as it was a pain to deal with. Had to be calm water and it was always a battle to carry it. Go with a long pole style spinner and send that floater down the Mississip.

I bought one this season and am in love with it. I t has tiopped over once because the dog sawm into it. I had to open her up and dry it out after that, everything is fine, on/off switch sticks at times, but no big deal. Maybe it tips over because water has found a way into the plastic base, or else make sure it is centered on the base, there are different slots on there for a reason I am assuming.

Also the new ones have come a ,ong way from the first ones on the market. MOJO now claims they are unsinkable. They totally redesigned the decoy on a hard plastic base that seems to work just great. I know the older ones were pretty hard to keep from tipping over.

This is a great motion decoy, it requires no pole and dance around, especially if you get some wind, and adds some serious lifelike motion. I brought it out to hunt with a guy who had never hunted with a floater, he got a kick out of it, the wind moved it around so it looked like it was attacking the other decoys.

Yeah, im to the point where I just leave it at home. Really frustrating to deal with at 5a.m. Seems like a lot of money to sit on a shelf in the garage.

    • Bag 'em up and souse 'em!!!  
    • Great! To all the Coyotes and Wolves up in our hunting area.  I hope they all waste away!
    • The only problem we have had with the kdrill is today we had ice build up between the center point cutter and the first tooth on the chipper blades. Once I cleaned that out it drilled like day one. Don’t need any other auger. 
    • How much ice do you need to feel comfortable putting your perm shack out there? I have a 4x6 made from 2x4s and thick plywood. Its on the heavier side. Im thinking 7-8 inches.
