      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 .

Was in your neck of the woods again this weekend. Everything looked ok at your cabin, at least from what I could see from the water. Big winds and hail went through on Monday night. Part of the big birch on the shore between you and your neighbor (Grandlunds, I believe is there name) is in the water. Should make for a nice fish crib. Lots of acitivity on the line, all released as usual, only two small eyes, the rest speckled fish. ONe of these days you're going to surprise me and be there. See ya Bill

Hi Bill, that birch tree came down a month or two ago. It's still alive in the water. It's on our property line, gonna wait 'till winter to do anything about it.

I was there the previous weekend, actually fished for the first time since spring. The injury to my hand is slowly getting better. I caught a lot of fish although most were on the small side, only two decent ones. I will be around there more from now on, the rain kept me away this past weekend. Dave

I guess I just didn't notice that birch before, probably to busy unhooking fish... Glad to hear the hand is coming along, some of the best fishing of the year is just around the corner. I agree on the small fish, however last weekend it seemed that the size was starting to pick up. Hope thats a good sign.

Had to call TIP on Saturday, don't think the CO ever made it over however. There is a boat that has been there every weekend for the past 4-5 weeks and just pounds the fish. On Saturday my wife and I released 40 fish in one hour 15 minutes this guy and one other with him were in the area for well over 5 hours and i saw very few throw backs. At one point I came aroound the point from our place and they were holding onto a boat lift and taking turns banging the fish from under the lift, when they looked up and saw me coming the guilt was obvious on there faces. This is not a boat from the lake. I followed them to the Cty 19 landing and they loaded up and headed south on Hwy 65. Its a tan/green Crestliner, Merc outboard, registration is MN 4215 HH. I have a real hard time with people who want to whore the fish population and once they're gone head to another lake and leave us to pay the taxes. I'll definitley not give up on the A hole. Perhaps see you this weekend. Bill

Good Luck nailing this "person"! I hope you can get them caught and the maximum penalty is slapped on 'em if they are indeed breaking the law.

jlt: We'll keep workin' at it. Hopefully the CO will be in the area if needed. I know they have a lot of area to cover. This guy even had the balls to give my wife crap because she was fishing off the dock and he didn't want to go out around her bobber. Bill

That is our choice for having cabins. That should not be part of the equation. Just because we pay taxes on a particular lake doesn't mean we own any part of it including the fish. I have seen over harvest on the lake numerous times. This includes the lake cabin owners. I have also seen people keep northern out of the slot allowance. I think TIP is looking for major,major infractions. Everytime I have called, just from the tone in their voice gives me no confidence that anything will be done. frown.gif Next month is trophy fishing time on Knife!!! But what fish am I talking about???

i don't want to start something here but some of the worst double and triple dipping i've seen are from cabin owners who can pull up to their docks bring the fish in, clean them and head back out. they don't have to worry about pulling into a public access and risking getting caught. i know not every cabin owner does this but i've seen this happen on 2 lakes, osakis and mil lacs and everytime i saw it, it was old timers. on mil lacs it was more of keeping fish too long and on osakis it was buckets of panfish.

i certainly agree with both of you that over catching is not just indicative on non lake owners. However if we sit back idley and just have a ho hum attitude it will continue. I personally don't care who it is owner or non if you want to rape the system suffer the consequences. I do agree with you Ron that the call to TIP was not treated with an agressive attitude which is sad considering we spend our money to support the programs that support our valuable natural resources. Everyone can obviously do as they see fit, I for one have no problem with reporting out and out blatant don't give a sh*t attitudes. Thats why we are in the minority we don't stand up for what is right. See ya on the water. Bill

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
