      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 .

WILDVIEW CAMERA

Recommended Posts

I picked one up at Menards for $50.00. Picked up a "Kingston" SD 512 card to slide in it, and got some rechargable batteries. Went out in the woods and set it up last night. How long do the batteries last in those things? And does anybody own one of these camera's? What do they think of it? Also can a guy take a regular digital camera out inthe woods with him to check the SD card? Will it wreck anything? confused.gif

I can't say anything about the camera, but you shoudl be able to transfer the SD card to another camera without having to format anything. I would imagine you could use the camera as a picture viewer.

i have a wildview VGA .3 megapixel. it holds 4 C batteries and they dont last that long. maybe a month max more like three weeks. i tried using a HP camera as a viewer and it didnt work. you can use the camera however to transfer the pics to a computer. just put it in and hook it up. i dont like the camera the resolution is very low, you cant zoom in at all to look at stuff. the flash is also very weak its about a 12 ft flash no matter what the box says. it will give you an idea of whats in the woods though.

here is a pic from the camera

here is a pic for a 100.00 moultre 4 megapixel

I'd say that's an awesome flash for 11:38 pm!!

Any camera is better than none. Fact is I've never seen what I would consider to be a framable picture from even the most expensive cameras. There are a lot of wildviews in the woods, and I've never heard of a poor performer, but I'm not selling them either. I have a couple different cameras, and the wildview is the most simple of them to use. I have multiple sd cards and just switch the cards, view them at home.

All in all, trail cameras are as much fun as you make them, really can get your hopes up!!

Nice pics. Yea, that flash on that thing isnt very bright at all. I put it out last Thursday and got 50 pics already. Most looked like the same doe and fawn with spots. Hard to see because it was at night. Then 2 six point bucks, must of been in the morning because 4 of those turned out really good. Whats a better camera? cool.gif

A friend has a couple Cuddeback No flash infrared cameras that take good photo's but the down side is they are rather spendy.

The picture might not be the best on the less expensive cameras but one can have more of them out there for the same money and you can see what is in the picture for scouting purposes.

for around a hundred bucks you can get a moultre 4.0 or a stealthcam 2.0 i own both. i just recently got the moultre but there isnt much difference. i would lean more towards the moultre just because the night shots turn out with a hair better color resolution. i think cabelas puts out a trail camera for close to a hundred bucks too, but i havent tried it yet.

i've got a wildview, but it just plain sucks. the trigger time seems god-awful slow, and the pictures are grainy. i leave the wildview in the car, and use the old 35MM. trail timers......it sucks having to get the pictures developed, but they turn out 100 times nicer.

My wildview 2.0 is a work horse. Been going strong all year long in every kind of condition for the past two years. Takes decent pictures. Not portrait quality but I'm worried about seeing what deer are there, not putting together a photo album.

The trigger time is slow but I have mine pointed across a trail, at a watering hole or overlooking a mineral lick and it seems to take plenty of pictures.

Great camera for a great price. Rechargeable batteries are the way to go. Mine last about two weeks most of the year and about a week in sub-freezing temperatures. I leave it out all year and it works as well as the day I got it.

My wildview 2.0 last about 3 1/2 weeks in the summer and 3 days in the winter. Ive had it out for the last 2 years almost straight. Its starting to act up though and is really slow now. So I think im going to replace it with a moultrie 4.0.

my wildview sucks!! I think out of 80 pictures only a few during the day turned out the flash wouldn't work outside and i tried it the other day and nothing would work. I have a stealth cam 3.1 and it's not that great but it works..

Since last thursday I have gotten 140 pictures off that wildview. When I viewed them out in the woods on my hp camera the night ones werent that good. But when I brought it home and hooked it up to the computer the night ones looked pretty good. I am very impressed with the .3 wildview, and especially for only $50.00 laugh.gif

Hey everyone its been awhile since i posted anything. I was hoping to be posting trail cam pics all year, after shed season wrapped up for me i went out and bought a cuddeback from gander mountain. I have yet to have it work correctly. the only pics on it so far are of me. Its having a problem with the batteries staying connected to the power source. I was told from one person that the screw that secures it to the tree is also what secures the batteries??? Each time i set it up and then go to put the cover on the power turns off and i have to start all over again. If anyone knows what im doing wrong, help me out, make me feel stupid, PLEASE. I wasnt sure if the big guy made it last year after i didnt find any sheds, but i saw him aug 19th.. and i KNOW he has walked in front of the cam.. hope i can share them with you!!

      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.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.
