      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 .

Okay guys, I just got done talking with The Captain following "The Talk" With the CO we had an issue with. Capt. said that after talking with us, he wasn't 100% sure that we were innocent until interviewing a few others after us. He said that the people that called us in just said that they saw someone with a muzzleloader and shotgun shoot a deer and leave it and used our vehicle as the vehicle that they came it. The people that actually did it were driving the same type of vehicle, but w/o a trailer. She also said that things were handled differently with me being a FAS instructor. She said that he would've grilled us harder had I not brought that up. She also said that she agreed that he did grill us pretty hard even after seeing the guns and making sure that all rounds were accounted for. She said that the CO said that Sandmannd's vest "only covered his chest." Whatever. Sandmannd has since gotten a vest that covers way more of his upper body so now no one can complain.

I called her yesterday just to follow up with what KF had said. I have to say she was extremely nice to me. She told me all of what KF had said. Sounds like there were two goofs out there in the same type of rig with no trailer and differant color. Couple of guys came out of the woods that he questioned and verified we didn't shoot that day. Thanks to them, whoever they are. Had a nice conversation with her and she told me of a place to try out there if I can make it out because she said it would be nice for me to get my first deer. That was real nice of her, but I won't be able to make it out so I'll have to try next year. She also said the CO was a concerned that we were that upset and asked her if he could call us. She told him probably not a good idea because of how PO'd we were about it. I told her that I have nothing but respect for law enforcement and what they do. I reiterated that I have no problem with being questioned for what he was told we had done. Just would have been nice to have been nicer when he was done. Once she said he wasn't convinced when he left us it made more sense to me. I'm not saying he couldn't have handled it differently, but it's nice to hear their perspective. I told her that she could tell him I hold no ill will towards it and understand the circumstances were out of the norm. I also told her if he wanted I would welcome his call and he saw me in the furture or needed me for anything in the future that I'm fine with him.

All in all, just chaulk it up to an experiance that probably won't ever see again.

Cool! I am glad that you both had a chance to follow up with the right channels. I know what you endured was out of the norm but I commend you for knowing the law, not hiding anything and even, when needed correcting the CO. It sounds like someone else may have gotten off a bit easily. Again, I commend you both for doing the right thing. Good work boys!

In all honesty, all I really wanted was for him to realize that he might have stepped over the line. With him wanting to call us and apologize, I think he realized that.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
