      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 .

vehicle hit and run at ripley

well this was my first year going there by myself and managed a doe. come out of the woods to notice my red and silver 1997 ford f-150 had been hit in the box area. dented and scratched. I was hoping for a note, nothing. I was very upset that someone can consider themselves a bowhunter let alone a real person. THis saddens me because i have 500 dollar deductable. Being 23 with a house and a 15 month old daughter money is short. If anyone knows who did it i wont have the cops involved if they give me 500 dollars for insurance. The vehicle was green cus there was green paint left behind. The following was wrecked. Box dented. tailight smashed. bumper smashed. Oh ya my doe was over 9 years old. thanks guys

Sorry to here this. Maybe one should report it as a hit and run. You never know they might get caught. I would maybe hang around and see if there is a green vechile around the camp tomorrow. Does the camp take vechile numbers as they enter the camp? Might be one way to find out who hit you.

10-4 HL,

There's about 2,200 or more people drawn for the hunt and the line of vehicles waiting is at least a mile and a quarter long, double file. We actually clocked it when we arrived.

They have all the license plate numbers, make, model and color of the vehicles that entered the hunt zone each day along with the owners name and city they live in.

It would take some cooperation from the officials to weed through it all but you could narrow it down quite a bit and maybe have the police check those matches for damage.

Might be alot of work but it could be worth $50/hr to you. One way to look at it.

P.S. Nine year old?! I didn't know they made deer that old! What did she weigh? Congrats on a fine trophy!

They do an age check on the deer registered at Ripley. My doe was 2.5 years old.

Sorry about your truck. It wasn't military green paint on it I hope...

9 year's old is super old, holy cow, she must be a beast. Did she still have all of her teeth?

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
