      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'm with ya Bassboy. I just sent illtakewhaticanget with one of my flyrods for his trip to Key West and the others have been put in tubes for their long winter nap. Bring on bow season! Shot the broadheads last night and was dead on out to 50! I'm in the city hunt, so I am taking the first doe that comes into range. Good luck and lets keep this topic going with updates.

Well, I am looking forward to a little fall fishing myself. The only problem is work is getting in the way of work! Looking forwad to deer season too. I haven't rifle hunted in a few years now, so I am getting excited for some fall activities. Can't wait for ice season though!

This is the time of year when the muskies start packin' on the pounds... I couldn't totally abandon fishing although it is a tough call between being on the lake or in the woods grin.gif

Let the maddness begin!

I would like to get my boat out 1 more time, so I need to set aside a day for that.

Steelhead run any time now, gotta get out a handfull of times for that action.

First year Bow hunting....... Well, pretty much consuming all my time as of now.

And, I can't forget about those scrappy little grouse making a comeback these days. My dog needs his fun too.

Oh yeah, gotta head south once or twice to chase some roosters around too.

Then there's that awful waste of time called WORK! But I gotta pay for my fun somehow.

So much to do, so little time frown.gifgrin.gif

Early tomorrow morning I will be in a slough with my eleven year old son for his first ever duck/goose hunt (youth waterfowl). Then it's off to watch him on a private gravel road to hopefully nail a partridge or two. Man it seems like yesterday when he was just a little fart. I am getting old grin.gif BC

Well, here is the first story from today's opener. I woke up around 4:30 am and headed for my stand in the city hunt. I was dressed and in the woods by 5 am, but since I am in the city hunt, I did not mark my trail to my stand real well so I spent a good 20 mins. stumbling around looking for my pink flagging. Once I found it, I headed for the stand and found it right where I left it grin.gif

I climbed in right about 6 am, got comfortable and before I could pull my face mask on I heard them coming. It turned out to be a doe and 2 fawns which I was VERY excited about, but they stayed in the bushes and wouldn't give me a clear shot. I watched them walk away not knowing I was there, so they will be back. At about 6:45, a single doe came in from the other side, but also hungout just out of shooting range and disappeared almost as fast as she showed up. At 7, I climbed out of the stand and headed for work frown.gif........all in all it was great to be in the stand and great to see my breath rising into the sunrise dressed in full camo again, can't wait to do it again tomorrow, but for a little longer.

I hope everyone else had a good day and I can't wait to read the reports.

What a beautiful fall day. We went to the slough and got in our spot an hour before legal light. Put the dekes out a half an hour before legal time and listened to the sound of whistling wings. When it was all done my son's first hunt was a huge success. He loved it grin.gif. My boy got to shoot at five different sets of ducks. Got a hen woodie and a hen golden eye (surprised to see her so early). Missed the opportunity at a very mature drake woodie. He was bummed. We then went home and took the mandantory nap. Woke up and headed out for some grouse. The dog worked perfect all day, but no birds for a two hour walk. Saw lots of neat sign in the woods. Grandpas stand had a buck tear up an alder branch. Hopefully he will connnect. Leaves are changin' and the cold wind is blowin'. Life is grand wink.gif BC

BC, tell Nate congrats, wish our schedules could've worked out. We had a soccer game at 10:30AM and then a wedding. Jr and I hit the grouse woods this morning for a quick hunt. So off we go, Jr, the old Lab, and Dad. It was perfect. He was pretty stoked to get out with his new 20 gauge Charles Daly pump and hunt.

With no shell in the chamber but one in the magazine, we worked on his muzzle control as we made our way. Kids got it down, next time out he'll be locked and loaded. We jumped on grouse, Jr got a glimpse of it. The hunt ended too soon.

In the stand quarter to 6(couldnt sleep) sat in the dark for an hr. Crunching leaves got me awake finally and I noticed a shadowy form moving towards me. at 15 yards a deer stopped but it was too early for a shot. I could barley see the deer let alone my pins. All was quiet and it was just awesome to watch the sun come up and see my breath again. 800ish a stick broke. I noticed a doe closing fast but she stopped behind pines never to be seen or heard again. strange. 815 ish headed in for class.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      Told my wife I wanted to watch hooker....  she said " you aren't watching any hookers while I'm around"   rim shot.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
