      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 .

Shoreham Hotel and Ed Schultz

We had a little excitement on the shores of Lake Sallie this past weekend before I had to fly back to Iowa, and it wasn't related to large fish. Good old Ed. I still recall his fishing reports on WDAY when he was married to Maureen.

Radio personality Ed Schultz defends actions in weekend altercation

The Forum - 09/05/2007

Local and national radio talk show host Ed Schultz spent 45 minutes of his local show this morning defending his actions in a weekend altercation at Hotel Shoreham along Lake Sallie near Detroit Lakes, Minn.

Schultz said a man approached him inside the hotel bar and wanted to talk about their differing political views and the war in Iraq.

“The Ed Schultz Show” is a liberal national talk show.

Schultz, who was with his wife, Wendy, said the man and a woman with him would not end the conversation despite Schultz’s attempts to do so. He said everyone involved had been drinking.

“Finally, I put my beer on the bar and put my finger in his face,” Schultz told listeners to KFGO’s “News and Views” morning radio show. “I told the guy, ‘I didn’t come here for this.’”

Schultz said the woman with the man also addressed his wife with profanity.

“If someone comes up to you in public and calls your wife (references to expletives), what are you going to do?”

Schultz said he engaged in harmless shoving with the man before bar workers asked both couples to leave separately.

He said he knew if he hit the man, he could be arrested, and that could sink his professional career.

“That’s in my contract. I can’t be arrested,” Schultz said. “Am I now the target? I’m against the war. I think Bush is a fraud.”

Becker County Sheriff Tim Gordon said his office has no report on the incident. Rick Lynch, owner of Hotel Shoreham, said authorities weren’t called. “It’s not worth commenting on,” he said.

Schulz said on the air this morning he felt he must share his side of the story after a reporter from The Forum inquired Tuesday night about the incident.

Schulz said he later learned the woman with the man has a daughter in Iraq.

“I feel sorry for them,” he said.

Schultz addressed the weekend altercation on his Tuesday national show, and played a clip from that portion.

“This has not happened to me for years, but it did happen to me this weekend,” Schultz told his national audience, referring to the incident as a “bar shuffle” and a “bouncer call.”

“I totally broke my rule,” he said. “I don’t engage in political talk on personal time.”

Hiya -

Ahh good old Eddie. Never dull when he's around. I sometimes wonder about his road to Damascus political conversion, but I take him at his word that it's legit. Even when he's on my side of the political fence I still can't listen to the guy though.

About the hunting incident - when I worked at the Moorhead scheels Ed was in the store buying a case of shells, and I made a comment I probably shouldn't have (I couldn't help myself. Momma always said I had a smart mouth...) About half an hour later I got a call from a rather irate Steve Scheel shocked.gif Oh well...

Can't say I've ever felt sorry for Ed, but sounds like he kinda got jumped by someone while he was minding his own business. Who knows what "really happened"- copterjohn, were actually there to witness it?

I think he's a jagged little pill and generally a pain in the butt, but it doesn't seem overly appropriate for someone to jump all over him while he's out for dinner. I can only imagine how many times it's happened to him though. Guess that's what happens when you make a living belching out your opinion on highly heated and debatable topics day in and day out. He's generally not one to mince words or soft-pedal his thoughts either. Guess that's how he got the job he did. Guess that's what lead to the confrontation John posted too...

I have to relay a little Big Eddy story, even though I hate to pile on a guy but he does ask for it a little bit. Back about 5 years ago I was fishing LOW in late July. At that time some boats were rigging and there was Eddy and his wife fishing in the same area we where pulling spinners, this was on either 12 or 16 mile area. We were up on the reefs pulling spinners and there was the usuall crowd out in the 28-32ft pulling plugs. All of a sudden we see a commotion on the "Big Eddy", as he had come up on the reef and got the downrigger balls hung-up. He lost one ball so the damage was minimal but the ego damage was huge as the radio's came to life with chatter of "Big Eddy got his balls hung up again" We laughed for hours...... Guy cant get a break.

RK, I can not imagine your mouth moving before your brain??? But hey a call from Mr. Steve Scheel himeself way to go.

I didn't witness it. I ate a pizza and left and all was calm then. I am in the TV media down here, so when I see other personalities, I leave them alone because I know what it is like to get crap all the time. Yes, it gets old. If I had a dollar for every time I have heard "wish I got paid for being wrong all the time." You gotta brush it off and not take it personally. It takes years to build a career in this biz, and about ten seconds to destroy it.

Fast Eddie is quite a card. I remember interviewing him when I worked for the MSU paper. He was quite an A%#$$. Well, that is Ed for you.

I wonder if he has shot any dogs lately .... smirk.gif

Ah the Hotel. Started drinking there at the grand old age of 17. Regular hang-out of the Fargo lake's crowd.

The crowd always got a little rowdy as the night went on and the alcohol levels went up .. up .. up.

Took a lot of 3.2 beer back then.

Ed Schultz did a great job when he covered the fighting sioux back in the 80's....he always has a passion for what he does, although I think his political views are whacked. Anyone remember the altercation he got into with a drunk Univ of Wisconsin fan in Madison? He's a bid dude and almost came to blows with this guy on the air!! Ever since then, he was known as "Mad Dog" to the Sioux faithful...Rock on, Ed!

      Did you find any? Let me know where you are located and contact info. Also what size is preferred?

      A popular method that I've seen is to use a slip bobber with minnows, leeches, or crawlers. Four-mile bar seems to be a popular destination but also try working along weed edges. You probably noticed the weedline is about 14' - 15' down so working those edges can be productive. Just my thoughts.

      The purpose for having fuses is to protect the wires and/or downstream devices from over-current situations. When an over-current situation exists the wires can be exposed to higher current than what they are rated to handle and the resulting heat will likely melt the insulation and possibly cause it to burst into flame, which can spread to an on-board fire destroying your boat and everything in it.  A fuse that repeatedly blows when replaced is a good indicator that there is a situation that needs to be resolved. You need to find out what is causing the over-current situation and resolve it. Putting in a higher rated fuse does NOT solve the problem. The wires are rated to a maximum current level and the over-sized fuse will allow excessive current to flow over the wires, which is no better than just getting rid of the fuses. Do not do this.

      Have a great retirement Ace. Really glad to hear you'll still stay on the forum!!

      When CigarGuy first showed up on these forums, I stopped by and introduced myself but I think that he was either on his dock or just hopping into the boat. I haven't visually seen him in a few years, but I did see the Mrs. Cigar Guy and another assembling a sitting bench earlier this summer! Some day I'll stop by to share a cocktail.   As for the people boating in close, here are my two Vermilion observations: 1) There are known spots on Vermilion. People go to those whether there are zero boats or ten boats there. If I am on a known spot, I don't get upset when others show up and fish close. If I am working a non-typical spot and others show up because they see you catch a fish, I do get a bit testy as well. 2) Navigation channels tend to hold fish, attracting boats that are fishing and boats that are moving. As a fisherman, I accept that people are going to boat close by in established navigation paths. I do get upset when people go through tight areas on plane or even just below it. I always try to follow a no-wake policy when going through tight areas such as Fectos or others. Our place is in Black Bay and the pinch between Black Bay and the Partridge River typically has boats. I'll come off plane and go nice and slow past boats. Treat others as you want to be treated. Preaching to the choir....I know

      move back to SD and then buy the boat You dont need to drop $50k on a new boat just to enjoy the water. I have just as much fun fishing about of a super old $500 aluminum boat with a trolling motor as I do fishing in a fully decked out Ranger. There are of course pros and cons to each but you can fish out of both and that's all that matters. And nothing is better than getting away from shore fishing it just opens up so many more opportunities to catch fish.

      TJ Hooker. Was Heather Thomas in that one? Ahhh, I looked it up and realized it was Heather Locklear. Heather Thomas was on The Fall Guy. I liked that show better even though it didn't have Captain Kirk. What were we talking about? The Landing?

      Enjoy retirement Ace. You've contributed a lot of great information to this forum over the years. Hopefully retirement means that you get to do more of the stuff you want instead of the things that you need to do! Thanks! Skunked Again

      The city of Grand Rapids will hold its fifth special deer hunt this fall in an attempt to further reduce deer numbers within the city limits. The hunt is open to archery, firearms and muzzleloader hunters during the regular season dates for those hunts. In order to participate in the hunt, a hunter must purchase a regular license for the type of hunt they want to participate in through the DNR’s electronic licensing system (ELS), and then may purchase up to four bonus permits through the ELS to take additional antlerless deer. The city hunt limit is five deer and hunters may take only one antlered buck. Muzzleloader and firearms hunters will have to apply for their special hunt permit through the ELS by Thursday, Sept. 7. Special hunt numbers are 931 for firearms, and 946 for muzzleloader. Firearms or muzzleloader hunters who want to hunt in a lottery area and participate in the Grand Rapids special hunt must make a choice whether to apply for an antlerless permit or participate in the special hunt; they cannot apply for both. Special hunt permits for the archery season hunt can be obtained at the Grand Rapids Police Department at any time. After buying an archery hunting license, hunters will be issued a permit to possess up to four bonus tags, which they can buy through the ELS. Deer taken in the special hunt must be registered under the special hunt numbers (995 for archery, 931 for firearms, and 946 for muzzleloader) and not the larger permit area 179. A deer taken outside of the city hunt boundary cannot be registered under the city hunt number. Most of the land in the allowed hunting areas is privately owned. Hunters must get permission directly from private landowners to hunt or cross private land. A map depicting allowed hunting areas is available on the city of Grand Rapids website at www.cityofgrandrapidsmn.com under the map tab. Itasca County plat books and online public records can help prospective hunters identify landowners in order to seek permission to hunt. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Kadunce River State Wayside on Minnesota State Highway 61 north of Grand Marais, Minnesota will be partially closed for three to four weeks beginning in mid-August while a habitat improvement project takes place in Kadunce Creek. During the construction, visitors may still park at the site and use the picnic tables, but the access spur to the Superior Hiking Trail will be closed and visitors are asked to avoid the construction area. Persons wanting to access the Superior Hiking Trail can do so at the access point at County Road 14; about two miles northeast of the Kadunce River. The project involves restoring, maintaining and updating habitat improvements installed in the lower 0.3 miles of the stream. Work will maintain high-quality habitat for juvenile steelhead and resident brook trout, and maintain fishing opportunities and sites for anglers using the stream during the open-water months. The habitat work is funded by the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Fund, and is being led by Trout Unlimited with technical assistance and design support by DNR Fisheries. The Kadunce River State Wayside is one of five state waysides along the North Shore that are managed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). These waysides are generally parcels of land too small to be full-fledged state parks, but with cultural or natural resources that exceed most highway waysides and rest areas. Questions about the Kadunce River State Wayside project can be directed to Christa Maxwell at the DNR’s Two Harbors area parks and trails office at 218-834-1429. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
