      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 .

Another Legal or not??

There have been a bunch of geese just out sitting on the ice around here. Would it be legal to set up deekes in a layout blind in the middle of a frozen lake???

What about the requirement to be concealed in natural vegetation when hunting water. Does that same rule apply to hunting hard water? I would think so....but then again it could be similar to field hunting......

Thank god I'm not the only maniac out there. I spent an hour watching geese 20 yards away on a river.(about 150 of 'em, mixed with 25-30 swans) I made a perfect stalk on them and they never knew I was there. The only problem, giant sheets of ice floating down the river. I thought retreiving geese while dodging 100#-500# sheets of ice might be the death of me. I did think of forcing my way out there with a canoe and setting up on the ice that they were sitting on. When I told my wife of my plan, she simply told me that I don't have enough life insurance for that. And the wise acre pointed out that my canoe is camo, not white.

why not just hunt them in the field? your going to drag a layout blind and dekes out over ice that may or may not be safe right now...and are the geese roosting there overnight???

I think you have to be in some sort of natural vegatation is the rule with that said. This weekend I layed in a boat out on some ice this past weekend and did pretty well. We layed white sheets over the boats that we drug out for safety and dressed in all white set out decoys and watched them drop in did ok but sure was fun! but we were sitting in some pencil reeds sticking through the ice that we considered natural vegation then.
