      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 .

I would like to thank the pontoon full of people that parked 20 feet from my 7 year old and I the other night on a relatively empty 1500 acre lake. If you hadnt driven up to within 5 feet of my sons bobber and right over the area that I was casting on Saturday night with that 70 horse and kids jumping up and down we probably would have kept catching crappies. I apologize for asking you guys to move a little bit further away, but fortunately, you were able to scare off the school that we had found. I wish more people understood that it is a free lake and its OK to park as close to anyone that they wish. If everyone could figure that out, I am positive that fewer fish would be caught and it is always easier to keep a youngster interested when they are catching nothing. Thanks for attempting to teach my son that kind of behaivior is perfectly acceptable. Unfortunately, he and I had a talk about rudeness and complete lack of respect for others and the lesson was wasted. I hated to have that talk with him because I think it is important to grow up learning that it is much easier to watch guys catching fish from shore with binoculars and then just horn in on them than spend time on the lake learning how to fish. In fact, if you are free this fall, maybe you can take him out deer hunting and show him how to get up early and teach him how it is ok to sit in someone else's deer stand if you get there first. I am hoping to be back up there in a month so you will have another chance to ruin the fishing for him. Thanks again for all the help.

Oh joy! SF, it is so good of you to see the true value of people. Some people might miss the great lessons to be learned but obviously you can see right to the point. grin.gif

Today while unloading my work boat at the launch, a large group on a pontoon motored in. It seems they had run low on beverages. It must have been a drastic situation seeing how they ran right into the back of my jonboat which was tied up. I'm sure if SF were there he could have pointed out all of the good points of that situation. I was blind to them but that might have been because I was knocked backwards and hit my head on the middle bench. mad.gif

This might have been the same group I encountered on Island Lake the other day. Bad enough they anchor within 10 feet of my bouy, but then they throw slip bobber rigs in every direction. They were nice enough to allow me to retrieve my bouy. I wished them well and moved on. I hadn't caught a fish on that reef anyway

Well, this was obviously the same boat sampling the fishing on different lakes on different days.

Chunkster, if all you hit was your head (I believe you and I could both be considered "thick-skulled") what's the big deal? No harm no foul. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Northlander, I cant decide if people are becoming more rude or just more "stupider". I see this more and more all of the time up north, here in the Twin Cities, out deer hunting, and even during bear hunting season and it is frustrating.

I know of the people that did it to me the other night and from what I have heard, it should have been expected. It is such a tough thing to deal with. You expect it and yet I am shocked every time it does. I just kinda stand there with my mouth open.

I think next time I might be stripping down to the tighty whities and tucking them in like a sumo wrestler. I am sure the women and their kids on the boat would love to see the fat hairy guy in a thong dancing and singing Bee Gee songs.

Gotta agree with you Ted. It has become more and more difficult to fish on that lake without some *&&%( ruining the day. I heard you guys were killing the crappies too! The sumo idea would scare the H out of anyone! The only thing scarier would be MRP in a thong!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?

      On the lighter side, I am 'SpoonBillSlayer' on that other site. For whatever reason years ago when I joined these sites I used two different userids. Both odd duck names that fit an odd duck! I just wanted to get the new updates out on this mess, it just seems like the only people being notified of it are those in  lake assoc's.  We'll see what happens.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.
