      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 .

I get my 4 year old daughter all bundled up to go slay the fish out on Tetonka this morning. Nice and cool out, couldn't ask for better weather to sit out on the boat and have daddy daughter time. Wife at work, sons in school. Ahhhh.

Drop the boat in, park the truck. Turn the key - dead friggin battery. Go to my truck to get my jumper cables, they are not in there, I cleaned my truck out after my Mille Lacs trip.

I think now that i'm back home, I will make a drink or 6 and watch sports center all afternoon.

At least the Vikings won yesterday smile.gif

Hey, Bunt2k, an old guy told me before I even bought my boat that i would want to keep a sall battery charger on my boat for the cranking battery. He said the lower RPMs wont be enough to keep it charged and that when i garage the boat plug it in with the on-board deep cycle charger. I do it but didnt know he had a point. Told me to just get 1 of those small trickle chargers the shuts off when the charge is full. guess he was right. still to bad it had to happen when you were on the lake! well better luck next time. talk to ya later...... Todd confused.gif

It was totally my stupidity. Forgot I had the kids out on it on Labor day, live wells running, GPS, graph, and radio on for 12 hours without the motor going. Pulled it in, and never thought about it.

I always have it charged up, cept for this one time... in a daze, only had one cup of my daily pot of coffee in me. Didnt even dawn on me. Silly thing is, I have 2 other batteries in the boat for the trolling motor, I could have just swapped. lol. Thought about pull start, then I realized, that aint going to happen on a 4-stroke 150. I'm not popeye with a can of spinach. Dont think it even has that option blush.gif

Oh well, I guess someone didnt want me to hammer the eyes today on Tetonka. Theres always next Monday morning. smile.gif

Moss, what a head case. Not a team player. More of a cancer if you ask me. Lets see if NE can survive the year.

MD, come on. Moss has never had a coaching staff to support and lead him. In previous experiences, he was coaching the coach. Not how it should have been. The coaching staff at NE should be the right crew for the job, I hope, because I would really like to see him do well.

You may be right T.O., but MD has a point, there was too much individualism there, not what it takes to gel as a team. To him it was just him & the quarterback. He was best when Chris Carter had mentored him & kept him humble, once he left I think he thought he was all it. I wouldn't want to work with someone like that. You gotta look out for each other. He will be humbled again one day...maybe with age.

L2f By the way, sorry to hear of you're troubles Bunt2k, been there, done that, & the next week, calm evening, starting to work the shoreline & the prop fell off the bow mount. Both of these on Tetonka. confused.gif

I agree Muddog, to much of a hotdog for me. He is a great player but, all the other things he does on the field and being a player only for himself, forget it.

If I owned a team I would lose the season before I would sign Randy.

bunt2k, I believe we have all had some of those days and no, they are not fun and can sure ruin a day on the lake.

Exactly what the Vikings did! I am not a big fan of Randy either but how can you trade pure talent like that. You guys are also fooling yourselves if you think Randy is the only one in the NFL with the same attitude. How many times have you heard I want to be traded to a winning team. Look at Kevin Garnett in that position. He was on TV many times talking about guns and bombs. He also stated many times that for the good of him he should be traded to a winning team. Everyone thought he was a angel and a role model. Any beter than Moss, I don't think so! I think the Vikings could be 60 catholic school boys from Minnesota and you guys would still find something to complain about. Randy is the real deal whether you like it or not. Show me another player that had stats that were even remotely close to his. smirk.gif Sorry to hijack this thread.

I do miss the flashiness of a player like Moss on our team....But then again, we now have Adrian.

I quit watching the T-wolves when they got rid of all there good guards and kept that Hudson. He had one good game the year before after missing 70% of the year with a injury. So they keep him? confused.gif The team did start going down hill when M Sealy (?) died.

That's what a DVR is for. Games go by much faster with it.

      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.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      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.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
