      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 .

Dog Food

I finally got to reading the fall PF Mag. I see an ad. for Native dog food (I know not to believe everything) and it looks promising. No corn, no wheat, no soy and no by-products or Chemical Preservatives. I'm currently happy with the food I'm feeding now, but I'm always looking when it comes to the hunting partner. Does anyone feed this food? Prices per bag? I checked out the web site but other then saying it's a good food (which they all claim) it doesn't give information on the prices for this specific brand in the kent pet foods arsenal. The other dog foods that they sell online do seem to be pretty well priced. But the Native must have to be bought from a dealer.

I did a search and that chart was on a few months back and if I remember reading right it was a hoax. Now if anyone has any information on the Native dog food please your information would be helpful.

I have a friend that raises britts and he switched all his dogs over to it about a year ago and he likes it very much. He buys in bulk and he said it is about $24 for 40 lbs. He feeds level 2 during the off season and level 3 during hunitng season. I feed Nutri source and have been very happy with it but I am thinking about making the switch myself. I talked to the Kent food rep at game fair and he seemed to really know his stuff. Thats about all I can tell you. Hope it helps

Sorry I forgot to add that the kent foods rep said it should be comparable to Nutri source in price (around $30 a bag) except Kent is 40lbs and Nutri source is only 35.

Does anybodys dog eat fresh veggies? My dog loves carrots, tomatoes, watermelon, , any fresh veggie. He goes to the garden and picks sweet banana peppers and green tomatoes to munch on. He eats better than I do.

If anyone is interested, I would be glad to answer questions regarding Native dog food. I head up the pet division that created the Native brand.

By the way, while some of that chart has validity, some of it is completely irrelevant to dog nutrition. I'm guessing it was created by a specific company that was trying to make their particular brand look better.

How does Native compare to Nutrisource in serving size, cost, & quality? Does Native have any breeder programs, and are they looking for dealers in south eastern mn?

For a 1 1/2 year old German Shorthair I would generally recommend Level 2 in the offseason and Level 3 in season. You could even go Level 4 during heavy, heavy hunting time. You should be able to switch between Levels 2, 3 & 4 with no problem as they are all the exact same ingredients (just more protein and fat as you move to the higher Levels).

In comparison to NutriSource (which is a good food by the way) Native is very similar in quality, serving size, etc. The main differences between the foods are 1) NutriSource has wheat and by-products in some of their foods while Native does not. 2) Native is slightly less expensive since retail prices are generally similar but Native is in a bigger bag.

Native generally retails for $29.99 on a 40# bag. All 4 Levels are the same price. If you have trouble finding it, send me a private email with your personal information and I will either tell you who is carrying it near you or try to get someone set up with it if there is no one carrying it presently.

DFG, welcome to the site. It very cool of you to post on here. Hopefully you will stick around and let us pick your brain a little bit!! grin.gif

Regarding Native, any reason you don't have any bacteria cultures in your food (or did I miss them)?

From the research I have done, do you agree with the following? I just copied a post of mine from another site and was comparing two ingredient lists. I posted them below.

Quote:

Yep, that what I have found also based on my reading....thus the first one may actually have more protein from from a grain source (even though it does not look that way) which has a lower biological value where the second one has the main protein source from meat which has a higher biological value. Protein sources from grains are still useful (I believe to help give the dog the amino acids it needs that the main protein source isn't high in), and I am sure there is more to it than this...so hopefully someone with more knowledge may chime in. My guess is most people are burnt out on the dog food debate.


Food 1: Chicken, Corn Meal, Ground Whole Grain Sorghum, Chicken By-Product Meal (Natural source of Glucosamine), Ground Whole Grain Barley, Fish Meal, Dried Beet Pulp (Sugar Removed), Chicken Fat (Preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E).

Food 2:Chicken Meal, Brown Rice, White Rice, Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Flax Seed, Sun Cured Alfalfa Meal, Sunflower Oil, Chicken,

Regarding the dog food grading scale, in my recent searches to find where it originated I came across this:

Quote:

Hi, i've never actually posted here or even visited this site before, but i thought i'd step in and say that *i* am the original poster of this dog food grading system.

My name is Sarah Irick and i am a Great Dane owner and rescue volunteer. i am a Civil/Industrial Engineer, not a veterinarian or animal nutritionist by education or employment. i do not work for a pet food manufacturer nor am i affiliated with one. i am just an individual who is concerned about what i feed my dogs and wants to help others decide what to feed their own. i cannot remember the exact date i designed this system, though i know it's been more than a year (probably 2-3 years ago). i was concerned with the way people sometimes throw out names of "good" dog foods that maybe aren't so good, and others take their words for it. Foods that maybe used to be good before their ingredients were changed for the worse or before better options became available are still being touted by some as being super-premium and i disagree. Since many pet owners do not have the time or inclination to do as many hours of research into pet (specifically dog) nutrition as i and many of you have, i wanted an *easier* way for them to compare labels. Unfortunately it is still a bit cumbersome (sometimes 2 people calculate the same food and get different scores even) but it's better than nothing in my opinion.

Is it exact science? No. i don't claim for it to be. In fact i've had to make a couple of changes over time (which the above don't reflect) for new circumstances i've run across, such as the food that contained NO MEAT (not a special diet just one that was so cheap it didn't contain any meat at all) and needs a steep penalty IMO but still scored a decent grade on the original or the newer kibbles that contain no grain and IMO if it still has sufficient fiber and carbs then it deserves extra credit that wasn't previously reflected. Also i've gotten comments and opinions that i take seriously and incorporate if it seems appropriate.

i don't have a permanent site host for this although seeing how hugely popular it is and how widely spread without accreditation it has become perhaps i should do so. It isn't that i care so much about credit but many people will ask the questions that your posters have about my affiliations and biases, etc.

i don't officially support any one food; anywhere that i personally posted grades on specific foods it was to give an idea of where these foods fell so people didn't always have to do the math.

Sarah Irick aka fredalina If you want to e-mail me with questions or comments, you can at
This is my "spam" address, so put "Dog Food Grading" in the subject line or i'll probably delete it mistakenly.


I have sent an email with some questions, but have not heard back. Who knows if it's true or not...but the closest I have found.

311, I'll stick around. It's helpful to know what kind of questions people have so I'll help out where I can plus I just like to talk about dogs and dog food. I'm assuming you mean yeast cultures and yes they are in the food.

Regarding your quote, you are dead on. Food number 1 is likely sourcing too much protein from corn which, although not worthless, does not provide the proper amino acid profile and is not as bioavailable to dogs. Not all grains are bad but some are better than others.

Food #2 looks like a little better food although it appears to have some frilly ingredients in it that may or may not really help the dog.

Regarding the chart, I'm not saying it is worthless. It still does provide some good direction on whether a food is good or not. Probably 90% of what it is suggesting has some merit but there is some puff in there too.

For example, it says to add points for Glucosamine and Chondroitin. In proper doses, these have had some good results in some dogs. What they don't tell you, though, is there is not enough of these in any commercial dog food to achieve the desired benefit so it doesn't really add to the food value.

This would be like saying 2 Advil tablets is good for a headache so if I take 1/8 of an Advil tablet with every meal I will not get headaches. It's just not enough to help but it is pretty common marketing.

Sorry for the novel but I'll keep checking back periodically if anyone wants to pick my brain (although the pickings may be slim).

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!
