      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 .

Name Suggestions

Recommended Posts

This has probably been discussed before, but I would like some suggestions for puppy names...

My wife and I picked up our 7 week old GSP last Thursday and have been struggling to come up with a name. I don't want to choose a name just for a name's sake, but nothing seems to stick. We're concerned that we need to come up with a name within the next week or so, just to get the pup off on the right foot.

Some of the names we have already discussed are: Lightning, Blizzard (the pup's dad's name), Darby, Kodiak (shortened possibly to Cody or Kody), Leopold (shortened to Leo) and Leif.

Our last dog's name was perfect the very first time we said it...we havent been as lucky this time.

Thanks for the help!

Male I assume?

I had a Shorthair once... named him 'Baron'. Thought it fit well with his German heritage.

How about 'Rudy' short for rooster, or 'Ruff' as in grouse. 'Sage' or 'Tag' as in the cover the birds live in...

Good Luck!

Picking out a name can be difficult. You are right, the minute you say it, you'll know that is fits. I had to go through that since summer. I came up with Gus the Dog based on a character from the book "The River Why". I have always thought Earl was a classic name for a dog. 10-15 years ago I swore that's what I'd name my next dog. Unfortunately, since then I have become good friends with 2 Earl's and it just doesn't seem right, I wouldn't want the pup to feel offended grin.gif.

NO matter what name you choose, don't select one that ryhmes with a command. I knew a dog that was named "Kit" and that was a very confused dog (because of "sit"). My current dog's name is "Buzz." The kids named him.

Thanks for all of the great suggestions so far....

By the way, yes it is a male...sorry for leaving that out!

My last dog's name was Remington. He was one of the first dogs I knew with that name. We got him in the spring of 1994, and the first time we said the name "Remington", it was perfect. It has become a very popular name these days, though.

I do like the last suggestion of Blaze...I'll have to see what the boss lady thinks! Keep the suggestions coming....sooner or later one will jump out that seems just right!

Smart man! laugh.gif

I like names that are somewhat different so if you're hunting with someone else and you're both yelling at your dog (that NEVER happens, right?), your dog won't get confused. My old GSP was Sadie and my good friend has a GSP named Sunday. We'd call one and they both came...and they looked like twins too!

I also like 2 syllable names for some reason.

Axel

Dieter

...and other good German names...

Blaze

I like to follow my grandpa's style, when it comes to giving dogs their names. He had one named Rain, because it was raining when he got her. One named Yeller because he was yellow. And my favorite, Last because it was going to be his last dog. When my wife brought home our current dog, I named her Sunday. It was that or Wal-Mart, since she got her in their parking lot. grin.gif

Picked up a six month old chocolate lab and my wife did not like the name it was given. "Ringer". So we had to come up with something close. We were working with ringer one day on heal and sit. My wife said, he always sticks his STINGER out when he sits blush.gif. Well there you go dear, you just named our dog "STINGER"

After 12 1/2 years she still tries to call him stinker grin.gifgrin.gif.

We got a new puppy (GWP) a month ago and we must have had 30 names picked out. Everyone in the family had a reason not to name her every name we came up with. Finally, my son said "How about Piper?" No one had a reason not to name her that, so we went with it. I think of the Piper Cub when I hear it.

My rules were: It can't sound like NO, It needs to be short and sharp sounding, and I don't want to be embarrassed yelling it in the field.

Good Luck and have fun with the new GSP!

My dog is named aspen. wanted something original. That and it is sort of a family tradition to name dogs after funny movies. My parents dog is named Cooper after the movie Baseketball, i figured i would pick a name out of my favorite movie "Dumb and Dumber"

"where ya headed?"

"Aspen"

"Mmmm, California, Beautiful!"

Hey everyone,

Thanks for all of the really great suggestions!

There were a lot of names in the previous posts that caught the attention of my wife and I, but we still had a tough time agreeing on names. We were able to agree on Leopold...it's a bit long, but it works, and plan to mostly call him Leo.

      Is it always impossible to get a hold of Jeff?? It took me like 8 calls to get a hold of him, brought my boat down after I got a hold of him. I told him I was hoping to use it this weekend for one last trip...I've called him multiple times for an update and he never answers... Seems odd for a business.

      You know it’s a good day when you’re thumb looks like that from lipping the fish! What sizes are you getting right now, Rick?

      Recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) is anticipated to open on several Schedule I Lakes in the Grand Rapids fisheries work area beginning in late October, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule II Lakes, will open Nov. 3. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Anticipated opening dates are as follows: Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec.3, for Deer (near Deer River), and Turtle (3.5 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Side and South Sturgeon (1.75 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Big Balsam and Nashwauk (1.75 inch mesh). Schedule II Lakes Lakes open to whitefish and cisco sport netting Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10: Bass (north basin). Ball Club. Bowstring*. Little Bowstring. Cut Foot Sioux*. Deer (near Effie). Grave. Jessie. Maple. Pokegama. Round (near Squaw Lake –1.75 inch mesh). Rush Island. Sand (near Max)*. Swan.  (1.75 inch mesh) Twin Lakes (near Marble). Winnibigoshish* and Little Winnibigoshish* (1.75 inch mesh). *Bowstring, Cut Foot Sioux, Sand, Winnibigoshish and Little Winnibigoshish are designated infested waters because of the presence of faucet snails or zebra mussels. Nets and equipment used in infested waters may not be used in any other waterbody unless they have been dried for ten days or frozen for two days. Fishing regulations require that: Netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. A person may use only one gill net, not exceeding 100 feet in length and 3 feet in width. One end of net must have a pole, stake, or buoy projecting at least two feet above the surface of the water or ice. Nets must have an identification tag attached near the first float of the end that is projecting from the surface of the water or ice. Identification tags must be a minimum of 2 ½ inches by 5/8 inch permanently bearing the name and address of the owner. Identification tags for marking nets are provided by the owner. Nets may not be set after sunset or raised before sunrise. All gill nets must be set and lifted by the licensee only. Anyone assisting in the taking of whitefish or ciscoes must have proper licensing. Nets must be tended at least once every 24 hours and all gamefish and non-target species must be immediately released from the net. A net may not be set in any water deeper than six feet. A net may not be set within 50 feet of another net. Minimum gill net mesh size shall be no less than 1-3/4 or 3-1/2 inch stretch measure depending on the lake (see full list of lake and size regulations online). Nets used in designated infested waters must be dried for a minimum of 10 days or frozen for 2 days before using in a different water body. Nets should be dried for 10 days or frozen for 2 before moving from any lake to another. Nets used in spiny water flea and/or zebra mussel infested waters should be not used in any other waterbody Nets should be transported in sealed container. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be bought or sold. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be used as bait. Within the Leech Lake Reservation boundaries, the possession limit for whitefish taken by sport gill-netting is 25, and the possession limit for ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting is 50. Net placement should not inhibit use of the lake by other boaters. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Grand Rapids area office at 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or call 218-328-8836.

      It seemed cheap to me for all the functionality.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.  
    • fishingdad
            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.
