      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've seen some rabbits in the yard with some odd growths, and last night got a some shots of the worst I've seen yet. The growths are semi-rigid as they flop around when it moves, and don't seem to affect it's movement and eating patterns. I watched it for some time and didn't see any unusual rabbit activity due to it that I could tell. Anyone have an idea of what this might be?

THis last shot is one from about 2 months ago, but it's still prominent.

This might be worth a call into your local conservation officer. I'm sure the DNR would be interested if it's a disease or something. I grew up in the country and have see thousands of rabbits, nothing like this though.... Strange!

I saw this many moons ago on a rabbit in my parents yard. It's caused by rabbit pappiloma or fibroma tumors.

You could also check with the wildlife rescue in Roseville. They may want to trap it and take a look.

I see a rabbit looking just like that in my Ma's yard all the time. I had figured it had grown a third "dead" ear. Freakish!

I've lived at two different houses in Rosemount over the last 8 years and at both places I've seen several of these same looking rabbits. I've mentioned to my neighbors to see if anyone else had seen them and the answer was always NO! (and you might want to lay off the barley pops) Nice to finally see I'm not nuts. Well thats still debatable!

I can believe there are rabbits like that in Rosemount, with the Koch Refinery,the U of M site, the landfill, and everything else in that area.

I live in Highland Park in St. Paul, and there are a bunch or rabbits like that around here also. At first just one last year, and now it seems like all the rabbits on our block have it.

My brother had a pet rabbit that had a growth very similar to it on its head. It wasn't anything to worry about. The parents brought it to the vet and there was a medicine for it, but the cost outweighed the benefit.

It's funny you mention this. Because I used to live in Eagan, MN and was out running one night and came across this rabbit that looked like this. At first I thought it had like 4 ears! At the time I was taking a Microbiology class at the U of M. Low and Behold the professor popped up a picture of one of these rabbits!! It is indeed a papilloma virus....basically it is warts!

I've seen rabbits like that since I was a kid, over 50 years ago. We used to hunt cottontails along the railroad tracks with our bows and we would see them every now and then, but now it seems like at least 50% of the urban and suburban rabbits I see, have horns.

CO's used to tell us not to touch em cause we could get sick, the condition does have a name, at least I have been told that, but I don't recall what it is, it's not 'Jack-a-lope' syndromn.

It has been my belief that alot of it comes from the rabbits eating chemically treated grass etc. Kinda like the frogs having 6 legs and a couple of heads.

It sure looks nasty, that I know! Years ago this one fella I worked with wanted to cook up some rabbits and asked me if I could get him some. We worked at a grain elevator and there were all kinds of rabbits around so I told him I'd get him some. I set a half dozen snares and got 4 rabbits, each had those horns and that ended my having anything to do with anymore rabbits.

Thanks for posting this Mcgurk. I have one in my backyard and I have been wondering what the heck was wrong with it. Now I have some answers.

We have lot's of these around our place in East Metro. Heard years ago it is only matted hair, caused somehow by over crowding.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
