      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 .

Is 7 Mile Creek north of Mankato any good for fishing?

Good spot to fish, especially in the spring. I have never fished it in the fall ,but with the higher water right now, it definately is worth a try. The only downfall is that you have to be out of there before 10:00 or you will get ticketed.

That is odd. Most of the river land is State land, Not county. I'll also have to see if that it a DNR landing or county landing!

The public land is there to give you access to the river. If you are using the river, I don't see how they ticket you.

It's like camping on the river bank in St Peter, they can't stop you. If your off the bank and want to camp you have to use there sites.

So far I've found this.

Subd. 9. State water access site; purpose; resource and site qualifications;

administration.

(a) A state water access site shall be established to provide public access to

rivers and lakes which are suitable for outdoor water recreation and where the access is necessary

to permit public use.

(B) No unit shall be authorized as a state water access site unless its proposed location

substantially satisfies the following criteria:

(1) the body of water to which access is being provided and surrounding lands can withstand

additional recreational use without undue damage to the environment or undue risks to the health

and safety of water users;

(2) public access to the body of water is either nonexistent or inadequate.

© State water access sites shall be administered by the commissioner of natural resources

or the commissioner of transportation in a manner which is consistent with the purposes of

this subdivision to provide public access to water. Access roads, off-road parking areas, refuse

containers, sanitary facilities, and facilities for limited picnicking and primitive camping may be

provided when the commissioner determines that these activities are justifiable and are compatible

with the resource and the natural environment.

So I say: if the access is closed. It is nonexistent!

Are there actually trout in this creek because there are signs designating trout stream and while I was fishing there today (which amounted to nothing) a guy told me it was a pretty good trout stream.??

Depending one the water levels...any of the small pools in the creek will hold some Brown trout. I've heard of some larger ones caught up stream.

Public or state it doesn't matter, there is a sign , or there used to be ,posted that you had to be out of there by such time. Mainly because the area had become a huge party zone for the kids and some drug dealing going on as well. I was warned once by the police for being in there after hours, even though I was loading up the boat and heading for home.

Ok. So far the best I can do with landing that close is. Code:


 Most accesses are open 24 hours a day. There is no fee to use them, 

with the exception for accesses located within a state park. To use these, you must purchase a daily or annual state park sticker.


That comes from http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/water_access/index.html

If the Co, Law Enforcement Officer is going to give you a ticket for using the access for fishing he better make sure that the sign say; Landing and park closed at (such and such) time!

Here is two more;

No where have I found one word of a closeing time on a State Water access.

      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...

      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
