      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 .

Weather blamed in death of muskies in Lake Rebecca

Thirty muskies up to 3 feet long were recently found dead in Lake Rebecca near Rockford in western Hennepin County.

Thirty muskies up to 3 feet long were recently found dead in Lake Rebecca near Rockford in western Hennepin County.

The muskies are part of a population of broodstock used by the Department of Natural Resources in its statewide muskie stocking program.

The fish, 32 to 36 inches long and 4 to 5 years old, were victims of "summerkill" - caused by the depletion of oxygen in the water because of warm summer temperatures.

"Summerkill is not an infrequent thing in the dog days of summer," said Dirk Peterson, DNR regional fisheries manager. The bay the fish were found in was only about 11/2 feet deep.

"With the high water temperatures, the oxygen likely depleted overnight, and the fish didn't know how to escape," Peterson said. The DNR also found eight dead bluegills and six dead largemouth bass.

Oxygen depletion increases at night, sometimes causing fish to suffocate. The lake's oxygen levels also might have been negatively affected by recent heavy rainfalls. Large amounts of denser, cooler rainwater can sometimes suddenly displace and spread deoxygenated bottom water to areas that previously allowed fish survival.

The DNR captures muskie broodstock in nets each spring from Lake Rebecca and removes eggs and sperm from them to produce muskies in state hatcheries. About 30,000 muskies are stocked annually in lakes around the state.

The loss of the 30 muskies -- about 25 to 30 percent of the broodstock in the lake -- was unfortunate but shouldn't affect the DNR's muskie-stocking program, Peterson said. If needed, the DNR can get eggs from adult muskies in other lakes.
