      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 .

Lets share some stories, season hopes and maybe some trail pics of our scouting adventures.

Well one of my employees and my self are headed up to unit 10 public land to dig around alittle and scout some new spots for the upcoming bow season. Going to play hooky monday and check out a few new spots. My so called money spots have been found by a few other prople so time to get a few more. At least the guys that found my little honey holes are pretty cool. Hunt with the same intensions and passion so its not that bad. Talked to them a few times and we actually swap weekends. I wish all hunters were like this.

What a wonderful weekend to be up in polk county. Lots of tracks on the sand roads. Did a couple of quick in and outs to a few spots and the trail activity looks great. One real nice heavy eight on trail camera several times. And what did I do? Ya erased the card. mad Looks like the wolf pack that has been around my cabin is no longer around? Havent found a track all summer. My quess is they never made it back arcoss the St. Croix befroe ice out. Not a track any where. Real rare to not have even one. Grouse are doing well, real good. Couple more weeks and the fun begins, grin

Nice deer for sure! I'd be excited if I were you.

Side note: Hardly a wolf track up in the Grantsburg area these days either. Strange...

I belive the bigger one spends alot of time in no mans land frown. That camera wasnt far from the crex. A little pressure and see ya next year boys.

Dont know what to think about the wolves. A little farther south by our family cabin, still aint squat for wolf tracks like there used to be. Only a loner here and there. No complaints here

    • FANtastic! Congrats Donbo!   No bird for me today, hopefully tomorrow  
    • I will get one they will come over the brook and I will be waiting.
    • On Friday morning I decided to take the scenic way home from work and stopped at Browns Creek, just north of Stillwater, to shake off the dust on my trout equipment. Wasn’t any signs of life in the stream! I’m wondering if the DNR wasn’t able to stock it before the opener due to the snow conditions?    Saturday morning I ventured down to the Vermillion River. I personally don’t care much for this river, as I don’t think it’s any good. But I a bible study in Rosemount in the afternoon, so I figured I’d give it a go. Water was high, fast and dirty. Didn’t catch anything. Neither did anyone else I talked to.   Not the start to the trout season I had hoped for 
    • Just a matter of time then I would think. One of them will make a mistake and end up down the end of your gun barrel. It would keep my faith up just knowing there are that many around. Good luck.      
    • Hakuna matata on my deck
    • BBD!  More to come...
    • Bought from private seller; my mistake should have been one thing to check; there is no wiggling it at all, it’s frozen in there tried torching it to no avail; put everything back together hoping I could grease and crank up and down but the zerk keeps coming off, and now it doesn’t lower at all; will have to bite the bar and bring it in
    • There is at least double the number to the left side They roost 150 yards from where my blind is 123 congrats on the bird
    • The whole flock skirted me this morning, never coming closer than 100 yds.  Stayed in the landowners back yard all morning before heading to parts unknown. Counted 7 longbeards in the bunch. Headed back now. I'm sure my blind will be surrounded when I get there. Good luck guys.
