      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 .

If anyone wants a an awsome camera at a great price you better jump on this! Cabela's Moultrie Outfitter 4.1 is now on sale for $99 until they are gone! These are last years models that take the 6 VOLT RECHARGEABLE battery!!! Dont confuse them with the advertised new ones that went back to D baterries!

I have stealth cams,bushnells, moultries and cuddebacks.... for the money this is hands down the best "flash" camera out there! I have 5 of them. Their easy to use, cheap, high quality photos, and one battery lasts years!! Anyones wants proof of the quality of the pics, I have plenty!

If your looking for a good camera, my advice is get a 6 VOLT model before they are gone! There was about 25 left at Rogers on Labor Day.

Thanks for the good news as I just bought one last week, and 'am in the process of learning how to use it. I've got to buy the solar panel for it though.

I have two of the same camera's and if you bought the 6 volt batteries for them I wouldn't waste my money on the solar charger. Last year I had them out for probably 3 months before I pulled the battery to recharge it. During that time they probably took well over 3000 pictures. I would spend the money on an extra battery then when you go out and the battery is low you can just swap it out. Also if you have 2 SD cards you can do the swap out thing with them as well.

It's not on the internet as a sale item, it's the Cabela's 4.1 that is listed on the Cabela's site for 149.99.

If I was by Rogers I'd buy one, I really like the 6 volt battery cameras. I also looked online yesterday after your post and saw only that $149 camera that uses the 6 volt. I have an older Moultrie and its a good camera, easy to use, good flash, but slow, it has to be over a salt block. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

Yes these are at the store for $99 along with all the others. Im sure theres a few left, the "experts" selling there didnt seem to be pushing them. They had a bunch of other suggestions for more expensive cameras! smirk.gif

I bought one of these the day before the original post. Also got the rechargable 6v and the solar cell for recharging. Been in the woods for two weeks now, checked it Saturday, unit still indicates a full charge. Solar/rechargable system seems to be working nicely. Pics look great too. (This is the low res setting.)

I was back at Cabela's last Thursday (needed something else, darn), and I wandered by the cameras wondering the same thing. They had a few left on the floor. Better hurry, they might still have the odd unit. Maybe call first and have them put one behind the counter, they have done that for me in the past...?

That was a quick reply.... Heck sounds like a decent buy even at the $150 price....

For $99 or $149 it seems to be a good camera. But don't forget the cost of the rechargable and the solar cell......I think $19 and $25 respectively, if I recall.......

The batteries are $9 and last for up to 3-5 years. No camera will beat that! I personally dont use the solar panels, when warm the battereies last forever.... when its cool, they all die fast- solar or not.

Anyway, I checked with Cabelas at Rogers this weekend and there gone... just one in the bargain cave? Now its just the ones with the D batteries. Im sure they are fine but now your back to putting in $9 every time. crazy.gif

Those of you who got them will like them!

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
