      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 .

Rebel, You mean you haven't hooked up out there yet? The bite on Forest will stay good right through September and into October. Maybe you need to talk to matty and borrow his boat while he sits in the goose blind!

What bite??? I was out on Forest last week, and nothing... zip... zilch... we fished all over Lake 1... Where are those good bites you are talking about??? I could ask Matty but I dont think I'd feel comfortable doing that... not my boat... I accidently break something... will he forgive me??? thats the thing... its his boat... so better off to go with him... besides... I dont have a problem with him wanting to hunt... just what he wants... no pressure for him from me... Oh wait a minute... are you the guy Matty and I talked to on the dock one day???

King... yeah... Im still waiting for you to get back to me on the boat rental thing... or for you to bring back your boat from your cabin!!!

As far as the boat rental, I have forgotten what you wanted me to find out! I thought we had figured everything out. As far as my boat, I won't be going to the cabin until October 20th.

I am he, the guy on the dock. The fish are biting out there and have been most of the last month and a half. Speed troll bucktails over the tops of the milfoil or just out in the basin and you should hook into something eventually. If you want to cast for them then those spots I pointed out have fish on them and do hold fish but don't limit your search to the deep or shallow edge, cast paralell to the weedlines and look to the areas that have adjacent flats with access to deep water and that should get you into something toothy. Jerk baits aren't a bad option this time of year either.

King... you were supposed to find out the costs and the times, remember the plan to do night fishing???

Tunrevir... it was great meeting you!!! Matty and I practically covered all over Lake 1 except for the middle... and no muskies... Maybe 2007 isnt my year... I honestly dont know... I will know for sure once I hit Mille Lacs this weekend... whether I get the monkey off my back or not this weekend, we'll see... but hopefully what I learn from Mille Lacs, I can apply/use at Forest Lake sooner or later... Probably wont fish at Forest again til next year or Matty's in mood for some muskie fishing... who knows...

they don't allow the boats out after an hour after dark or before 7:30 a.m., and the cost is $25 for the first 2 hours and $7 an hour after that, with a 2 hour minimum. I'll call again tomorrow and double check, but that's what they told me last time I called.

Kingfisher, where are these rates from?? That is rediculous for boat rental rates. Unless it is got a decent sized motor included, that is pretty high. I am a parks manager in wisconsin just on the border and we rent our boats out for $7 for the first hour and $3 per additional hour after that. There is no minimum either. The lake is only 40 acres, so motors are not permitted, but I can row across the lake in 4 or 5 minutes so it is not a big deal. You can also bring a trolling motor if you want. It is also loaded with rainbows and huge bass. Drop me an email, I will clue you in more. You have my email!

      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.

      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.

      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!

      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?

      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.

      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks

      Yesterday the MN DNR announced a license requirement change effective NOW for this ice season. All Wheel House and other fishing structures which cannot be folded / collapsed must be licensed even if you remove the house when you get off the ice.

      Harvest climbs 16 percent from 2016 Minnesota firearms hunters registered 161,057 deer through the third weekend of deer season, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  Preliminary results through the third weekend show that the number of deer registered was up 16 percent from 2016. Of the deer harvested, 53 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent during the same period in 2016. In Zone 1, in northeastern Minnesota, total firearms harvest was up 36 percent. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 10 percent and Zone 3, in southeastern Minnesota, was down 5 percent. “The conditions were generally good for hunters participating in the last week of the Zone 1 season and for the start of the 3B season in the southeast,” said Erik Thorson, acting big game program leader, “which provided a boost to the statewide firearms harvest.” Based upon the number of antlerless permits available and the number of permit areas that allow multiple deer to be taken, the DNR is projecting the 2017 total deer harvest to be around 200,000. The 2016 total harvest was 173,213 and to date firearms and archery hunters have harvested about 180,000 deer this year. In much of Minnesota, the firearms deer season ended Nov. 12, and the northern rifle zone season ended Nov. 19. The late southeast firearms deer season is open through Sunday, Nov. 26. The muzzleloader season begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. More information on deer management can be found at mndnr.gov/deer. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Applications due by Saturday, Dec. 16  The Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission are seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee.  “The Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee plays a critical role in helping us achieve the vision Minnesotans have for use of the Parks and Trails Legacy Funds and creates an accessible and equitable, integrated system of state and regional parks and trails in Minnesota,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters. The committee is planning a series of regional events during the year to celebrate Legacy accomplishments and engage Minnesotans on the question, “Why Parks and Trails Legacy Matters.”  Information about the events will be available in January on Facebook (/PTLegacyMN) and on the committee website (www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac). The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents. Committee members should have expertise in two or more of the four strategic pillars of the plan: Connect people and the outdoors. Acquire land and create opportunities. Take care of what we have. Coordinate among partners. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. Meetings are scheduled every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Interested individuals may complete the application form online at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/member-application or print it out and return it to Paul Purman, Department of Natural Resources, Box 39, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155. Anyone with questions can contact Paul via phone at 651-259-5643 or email at paul.purman@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
