      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 .

Fire Restrictions Update 8/31/07

News Releases

Additional Changes in Fire Restrictions are Announced (2007-08-30)

The recent rainfall has somewhat lessened, but not eliminated, the potential threat of wildfires in Northeastern Minnesota. Cook, Lake and St. Louis counties have been under the most severe open burning restrictions in the state. As of 8 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 31, these restrictions will be slightly eased to allow the use of charcoal grills. Charcoal grill use will be allowed in Cook, Lake and St. Louis counties within 100 feet of a permanent residence or cabin. Additionally, in southern St. Louis County, campfires and charcoal fires will be allowed in patrolled campgrounds or resorts, the same as they are presently allowed in campgrounds along the Lake Superior shore.

In restrictions issued previously, campfires and charcoal fires were limited to the hours of 6 p.m. to midnight at patrolled campgrounds and resorts within one mile of Lake Superior. The eased restrictions now allow campfires in patrolled campgrounds and resorts in that part of St. Louis County south of a line defined as: from the west county line, east on State Highway 1 to U.S. Highway 53, then south to County Highway 16, and east on County Highway 16 to the St. Louis County line.

The U.S. Forest Service will continue to prohibit charcoal grills, campfires, or charcoal fires in national forest campgrounds throughout the Superior National Forest.

“The recent rainfall has allowed us ease restrictions on charcoal grills and campfires in these areas,” said Larry Himanga, Minnesota DNR wildfire prevention specialist.

“We ask that members of the public living and recreating in these counties exercise extreme caution if they choose to use their charcoal grill, Himanga said. “Make sure all coals are dead out, and utilize a metal or fireproof container for ash disposal. Also, have a ready source of water nearby to douse coals after use. Never dispose of charcoal ashes in any type of vegetation.”

General restrictions remain in effect for the following counties: Aitkin, Beltrami, Carlton, Cass, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Kanabec, Koochiching, Lake of the Woods, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Todd and Wadena. In these counties there is to be no open burning, including the use of burning barrels. However recreational fires or campfires are allowed in a designated fire receptacle designed for such use provided it is associated with a residence, dwelling, campground or resort.

"Rainfall has temporarily eased the fire hazard in these counties," cautioned Fire Suppression Supervisor Ron Stoffel. "If periodic rainfall is not received restrictions could be reinstated."

"Although significant rainfall fell across most of northern Minnesota, higher fire danger is expected to resume by the weekend. Many areas are at half of their normal rainfall. More than one shower will be needed to reverse the extended drought conditions," said Himanga.

Labor Day weekend travelers are asked to be mindful of fire restrictions in northern Minnesota and to take care using any fire outdoors including smoking. Additional fire information can be found at and

We sure were surpirsed to come up a week ago and find out that we couldn't grill even at the resort we stayed at right by town. Those Ribeyes we braught up just didn't have the same meaning cooked in the cabin with a skillet.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
