      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 could be wrong, but a buck is a buck. You get one in the cross hairs, pull the trigger.

I am going over regs right now to see if it is illegal or not.

Every time a big buck is shot there is always speculation on if a store or magazine is going to pay for the story and the mount.

It is not illegal in MN to shoot an Albino Deer!

why is it people are always killing threads, do some research before you start questioning the illegality of a situation.

How am I killing a thread? I didnt think it was legal, either did the guy who posted it! I didnt say it was illegal! I just said I didnt think it was, I hunt Wisconsin so where I hunt it is illegal.

Last time I checked this story was not in Wisconsin. I should add I am a little salty this morning... It does bother me though when people are always looking for violations in every posting. Than the originator needs to explain why it wasn't illegal...Just never ends. Sorry if I offended you.

I think he means you are killing this thread, because your responce was not that aggresive grin.gif. The more aggresive responces keep threads rolling for ever crazy.gif.

I thought you had good questions! They were questions and that is what this site is for, to ask questions and get answers .

I think comments like

We can agree to disagree than. Recently there was a posting about a woman being circled by a big cat, that discussion became more about whether or not she should have been hunting with a crossbow than about the cat. It happens all the time.

Was not sure about that myself, I believe there was regs put in about "white" bears a few years back? May have been a temperary regulation. They saw one up by Orr at the bear preserve up there. Not sure it it is law or not? 10 years ago.

I see you point on the Cougar thread!

I see two kinds of threads that invoke two different kinds of replies by my self.

The cougar story was a fellow F.M.er who posted a thread post about a personal situation in his life. That’s were I will post a "that’s to bad", or "Great story" and leave it at that. Itry not cut down or question a fellow F.M.er, or stop questioning when some one hones into a thread that has a personal stake in the story.

Now when there is a post with a link to another story about a person who has nothing to do with F.M. and there is a questionable story or story line with questions added to it, ask away, question away. That’s how I see it.

Plus this thread has the question asked in the opening post.

I also didn't notice that the question was part of the original post. My bad. Certainly this is a website that is a great place to go for questions, since it was a question from the original poster I was the pain in the butt on this thread.

On other threads though when it is not part of the original post I stand by my opinion.

Ok no offense taken, but back to the story. It would be very exciting to see an albino deer when in the woods, I am happy she seen it, good for her that she got a buck!

Now I personally dont agree with shooting an albino deer, I myself wouldnt have, but since it is legal in MN, that is cool with me. Congrats at getting a once in a life time deer to her!

That's a rare treat to get an albino. I'd put a picture on my wall and sell the hide and rack in a heartbeat. That is if my arrow went through the vitals!

My buddy that lives by Warroad area said that a guy up there shot an Albino deer. It was a yearling and he is getting a full body mount which I think is pretty cool idea.....but expensive!!!

I do not know the answer to your question but I can tell you that the area I took the photo has produced quite a few albino’s, so I am guessing it can pass at a higher percentage than some would think…

Albinism is a recessive allele, both parents have to carry it. That area has a high allele frequency for this genetic disorder. At one time there was a buck with this defect, probably bred a lot of does, giving the offspring the gene. The following year, if he bread any of his "daughters, they both would carry, or if any of his sons bred any of their "half sister" they would have a about a 25 percent chance of having an albino.

I may have missed the location. Where was this albino deer shot up north? Reason I ask is I saw one on Saturday. Was the cooliest thing I ever seen. Was running through the woods when one of our guys kicked it up on his way in to camp to warm up. We are located north of Williams up near Baudette. Hope it's still out in the woods as a return trip is already planned!! wink.gif

Correct. Albino, white, and piebald deer are all legal in Minnesota. Just about every year there's someone in the legislature that proposes protecting them. Who knows what the future will bring.

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
