      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 .

most hunters are great

I just wanted to briefly mention that throughout my hunting career I have rarely met in the field a fellow hunter that was a jerk. We tend to mention the people who irritate us here on fm but I think it needs to be mentioned that from time to time when I run into a fellow hunter on public land the person is nearly always someone who if I knew better could be one of my "hunting buddies." I bet that rings true for most of us? The next ten guys you meet in the woods most likely 9 or more will be like the above.

This is my experience also, I dont hunt public land much, but when I have most people will be very nice, and even helpfull. I have had people help drag deer, even have given me a ride when I locked my keys in my truck. Its easy to complain about the ones who piss you off, and you usually dont remember the ones that are nice. Most are sportsman!

Good post!

I hunted a new area this opener Up North. Walking along an old, overgrown road in the middle of a section I found a good tree to climb about noon. It already had branches cut down from previous years.

While I was sitting there 2 guys from St. Cloud came through and we visited briefly. I said this looks like a good spot and found the area on airphotos. He said, "yea, how do you like my handiwork?" I said, "I'm sorry, I didn't know this was your spot. "Did you want to sit here today, I can find another? Just looking around anyways." He said "no, go ahead, were hunting further south." Then I checked to see if he wanted it tomorrow morning.

Good visit and nice people most of the time I'm out too.

I guess ive been lucky so far and have not met any "jerks" in the woods yet. Ive only met a couple people on public land and both times just had a quick friendly conversation, then continued hunting.

The vast majority of hunters are better than great. They are the best people I will every meet. And I'm proud to be in their company.

There are a few, probably less than one in ten, that sour it for us all. They run in packs. And deserve to be exposed. And run out of the woods. I think it might be getting worse. Tradition seems to be losing ground.

Normally, I look for the shiny side of everything. And the one I see here is that the majority can clean the pool.

Read these forums. If you see something that bothers you, chime right in. I think a lot of folks on these forums are pretty surprised when somebody calls their rough ethics. And maybe, just maybe they will change.

IF you see a violation, call TIP. 1-800-652-9093. Program it into your phone. Help keep our image what it needs to be. If not, my kid and your kids may not enjoy what we had.

Kingfisher and I met a few hunters while we were out and they were all great to talk too. I'll go one further and say it's not just the hunter, but outdoorsman in general. While fishing I haven't met too many that won't talk to you and enjoy what you do. Also, many thanks to this site. I've met a handful of people off of here and have made some real good friends here. I think in general we are all cut from the same type of cloth. I look forward to meeting more folks out there.

I figured you would run into "good people" out here.

I wish you or KF had shot a deer. Let me know if you or KF go back out.

Ditto. A shout out to my neighbor who helped me track a wounded deer we were never able to find. frown.gif But the guy was great, he helped me track all afternoon and into the evening and gave me advice on where to look the next day. This from a I guy I've talked to once in the three years we've lived there. He said he had a lot of fun doing it. Great guy. The silver lining in the whole experience.

      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
