      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 .

Fred Bear - Ted Nugent

The Nuge also has another good called "I Just Wanna Go Huntin'", but it is a little hard to find. "Fred Bear" may be favorite song of all-time.

If you don't know how to whistle the theme song to "The Andy Griffith Show",

I can quote that scene with Bogey and Bacall for you:

-just put your lips together and blow!

Livin' Part of Life by Eric Church is a good one.

Brad Paisley's The Fishing Song may be my favorite song ever. (You Never Even Call Me By My Name by David Allan Coe is another choice for favorite song, but it doesn't talk about fishing, and this thread isn't about favorite songs)

Got so many fishing songs, it's hard to choose....have about 50 favorites on 2 cd's that get played over and over and over again.

DEFINITELY love all of Da Yoopers. Then there's an old Bing Crosby/Satchmo duet that is pretty good. I think it is called "Gone Fishin'". And Haywood Banks' "Fishin' Worms" is classic. Weezer has one about fishing. And the Richard Shindell song about the INS interrogation of an illegal alien tells a cool story. I can't remember the artist now, but "The 5lb Bass" is good too.

But ever since I was a kid, "Come On Down To My Boat Baby" by Every Mother's Son has been my favorite.

For hunting, I only know one:

"That Squirrel Had To Die" by Cletus T. Judd

I agree with Tunrevir, Hank Jr's "A Country Boy Can Survive." Don't forget Lynard Skynard's "Swamp Music." Can't think of anything more recent.

What disc is "Fred Bear" on?

That would be Robert Earl Keen and that is a good fishing tune. All his stuff is good.

I've always liked "And It Stoned Me" Van Morrison

Half a mile from the county fair

And the rain keep pourin' down

Me and billy standin' there

With a silver half a crown

Hands are full of a fishin' rod

And the tackle on our backs

We just stood there gettin' wet

With our backs against the fence

Oh, the water

Oh, the water

Oh, the water

Hope it don't rain all day

I was always different.

Nobody understood.

I didn't play follow the leader.

‘cause I was always in the woods.

They hadn't invented peer pressure yet.

It seems I stood alone.

But my daddy had a vision.

Yeah, Love started in the home.

Yeah, Punks used to laugh at me.

They said “How can you rock and not get high.”

So I just stood my ground.

And I watched those (Contact Us Please) falling down.

‘Cause I just wanna go huntin'

It makes me feel so good.

I just wanna go huntin'

Try to find me in the woods.

Things get a little crazy.

In this day and age.

The concrete jungle warfare.

Has got every body in a rage.

I sure like rockin' days.

And crave My rock ‘n' roll.

But when I get my mimin'

I know where to go.

Yeah, We jump in the 4 wheel drive.

Load up the dogs and the family.

‘Cause I got the feelin' live.

With the wired laugh where I can breed.

‘Cause I just wanna go huntin'

It makes me feel so good.

I just wanna go huntin'

Try to find me in the woods.

I'll slip away.

Lookin' for a new sunrise.

I'm feelin' ok.

‘Cause it's times like this I may be healthy and wise.

Here is the Swamp Music lyrics:

Going down to the swamp

Gonna watch me a hound dog catch a 'coon

Well, I'm going down to the swamp

Gonna watch me a hound dog catch a 'coon

You know the hounddog make-a music

On a summer night under a full moon

Lord, fetch my cane pole mama

Gonna catch a brim or maybe two

Lord, fetch my cane pole mama

Gonna catch a brim or maybe two

And when the hound dog start barkin'

Sounds like ol' Son House singin' the blues

Hound dog sing that

Swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music

Swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music

When the hound dog starts singin'

I ain't got them big ol' city blues

Well, hey pretty mama

Lord, just take that city hike

Said go ahead pretty mama

Lord, just take your city hike

Well, I'd rather live with the hound dogs

For the rest of my natural born life.

Singing that

Swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music

Swamp, swamp, swamp, swamp music

Well, I'd rather live with the hounddogs

For the rest of my natural born life

Well, I'd wanna live with the hound dogs

For the rest of my natural born life.

Partial lyrics to "A Country Boy Can Survive":

The preacher man says it's the end of time

And the Mississippi River she's a goin' dry

The interest is up and the Stock Markets down

And you only get mugged

If you go down town

I live back in the woods, you see

A woman and the kids, and the dogs and me

I got a shotgun rifle and a 4-wheel drive

And a country boy can survive

Country folks can survive

I can plow a field all day long

I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn

We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too

Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do

We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine

And a country boy can survive

Country folks can survive

Because you can't starve us out

And you cant makes us run

Cause one-of-'em old boys raisin ole shotgun

And we say grace and we say Ma'am

And if you ain't into that we don't give a #*$%

We came from the West Virginia coalmines

And the Rocky Mountains and the and the western skies

And we can skin a buck; we can run a crop line

And a country boy can survive

Country folks can survive

i had a roomate in college that was sure it was "truck line"

trot line is the words. I love that song. Funny, I was at work today and the lyrics and sounds kept running through my head all day long!. Thanks for posting this because it helped get me through another day in the salt mines. Yes, many of us could and would survive if need be but we need to pass this on to our "youngins". Great post guys! Tightlines, and may that next deer coming down the trail be the one you have dreamed about!

Tunrevir~ p.s. (trot lines aren't legal in this state.)

tunrevir is correct, it's trot line.

I saw Alvin "Bad Boy" Bishop in concert once, he made a point out of pulling out his MN non-resident fishing license and showing it to the audience. Then he sang a song, as far as I know he just called it "the fishing song'. I've never looked to see if he released it or has it on any albums. I remember one set of lyrics from the song, went something like:

If you fish on Sunday, some folks say it's a sin

But if a fish bites on Sunday, I'm gonna reel him in

I still get a chuckle out of that.

A few excerpts from I'm still a guy by Brad Paisley....pretty funny song, highly recommended

When you see a deer you see Bambi

And I see antlers up on the wall

When you see a lake you think picnic

And I see a largemouth up under that log

...........................

With all of these men lining up to get neutered

It's hip now to be feminized

I don't highlight my hair

I've still got a pair

Yeah honey, I'm still a guy

Oh my eyebrows ain't plucked

There's a gun in my truck

Oh thank God, I'm still a guy

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.
    • Chill62
      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
