      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 .

Tom's Harbor?

Recommended Posts

Commanche Jim

I've read and heard some things about Tom's Harbor that aren't very good. What is going on with that place? I saw they were holding a auction for some of the places...........is that true?

Hey Jim,

I honestly don't know what the deal is with Tom's. I think the auction was back in early September, and you had to have a $1,000 money order or something like that just to get in. I also heard something to the effect of $160,000 for a lot that's 100 feet by 40 feet. Everytime I went by there on the lake, it seemed like there was some sort of work being done on the cabins there. I'm sure soon enough all the rich playboys from the cities will show up with their jet-skis, "runabouts", and "pleasure boats"......yuck. We have enough of that already.

Hanson,

#1. Please point out in my post where I said that Cass was "my lake".

#2. Where in my post did I group togather the recreationalists and fishermen?

I'm not trying to be a jerk. Just please answer those questions. The "rich playboys" I am talking about are the people who come up every weekend and have absolutely no respect whatsoever for the lake or other users of the lake, no matter what region they are from. These are the people who will spend all afternoon out at Star Island getting completely drunk and tearing around the lake mindlessly. And that whole bit about the "stereotype", well, sadly it is true. A vast majority of the people who vacation here during the summer are from the cities. Some of them are very decent people, others not so much. It's the "other" group that annoys me. But this is just coming from a stereotyping, stuck-up local.......

MuskyTail,

I agree with you to a point o the city folk, BUT I also see a lot of people on the water that have boat licenses from out of state. These people rent, time share, or buy for what ever reason these places that are WAY to highly priced... But, we need these people here to help our communities survive. I know you never mentioned anything about that, but I'm just adding my two cents worth... I'm originally from Apple Valley and have been up in god's country for 14 years now... Yes I also agree with Hanson-- This is a major stereotype and I don't know when it will end... North Dakotan, Minnesotan, Cheesehead, and Farmers or Wine Makers from Iowa we all use these waters and we all have a different theory to what we call rest and relaxation... Hopefully people use common sense and enjoy the resource we have here...

On a side note:

The only accident or situation that I heard/saw this year on Cass was when one boat at half throttle took out another boat.. Everyone survived and one lady had a messed up shoulder/arm... Point is not bad compared to all the boats that were out there this year crazy.gifcrazy.gif

To elaborate a little bit more on what beef touched on, (the boat collision) ironically enough, I took the son-in-law of the guy who got hit out fishing that morning. We saw the guy drive past us about half an hour before the accident. And just when you thought there couldn't be any more irony, the topic we were talking about when he drove by was boating traffic/accidents. Twilight zone stuff, huh?

Oh and LABS....before you go on and on and on and on about the wonderful, blessed, all dominating Packers.....the deer hunting is depressing. I do, however, have 3 pounds of 50/50 beef-venison if we could make something outta that...

There are Bluebills showing up but I think this year we will see most of them head to the west a little.. The report coming from the NW angle on LOW is there is between 20 thousand to 40 thousand and that they are or will be heading towards Warrod instead of Baudette... I will be back out again this week looking but I know one lake last weekend had a bunch of Bills(500-2,000) on it... With this warm weather, I'm guessing we will be duck hunting up here until the last day(I think the 27th).....

      I have not heard any reasons for the purported relocation.  Just thinking out loud here - Walker Bay has not had enough ice in many of the past years, so they have to hold the event on shore and not on the lake.  There is limited space for a shore event there.  Maybe Bemidji makes more ice and/or they have more on-shore accommodations.  Walker itself is more of a tourist and family town and the Pout Fest is not that.

      Hunters are reminded to register deer before processing, before antlers are removed and within 48 hours after taking the animal, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  “Deer registration provides information that is essential to our ability to manage deer populations,” said Steve Merchant, wildlife populations and regulations manager. “Hunters are required to register deer and it’s a fairly simple process.” Hunters register deer with a phone call, online or in person. Before registering a deer, hunters must validate their site tag. The validated tag must be attached to the deer when the deer is placed on a motor vehicle or an ATV, a vehicle or a trailer being towed by an ATV or brought into a camp, yard or other place of habitation. Phone registration
      Register deer via phone by calling 888-706-6367. Directions are printed on each deer hunting license. Have a pen or permanent marker ready. A confirmation number will be given; it must be written on the license and site tag. Internet registration
      Register deer via internet at mndnr.gov/gameregistration. Directions will be similar to phone registration, and a confirmation number must be written on the license and site tag. In-person registration
      When phone or internet registration is not possible, hunters must take their deer to a big-game registration station. The person whose name appears on the license must be present at the registration station with their deer. They will receive a big-game possession tag that must be attached to the hind leg, ear or antler where the site tag was attached. A list of all stations organized by city and county is available at any DNR wildlife office or at mndnr.gov/hunting/deer. During registration, the hunter must use the permit area number where the deer was harvested; using the wrong deer permit area for registration is illegal. Registration instructions for all methods are available at mndnr.gov/gameregistrationhelp. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Hi Jim, the problem with channels on Tonka is not only the current, which keeps the ice thin all winter, but also due to the effects of road salt/chemicals.  Many of the channels have bridges over them which receive a lot of automobile traffic.  In the winter, road salt/chemicals are pour on the roads during adverse weather conditions.  Cars and especially snow plows cause the salt/chemicals to splash over the guard rails and onto the ice.  When you see new reports of cars going thru the ice on channels, it's usually right under a road overpass, for this reason.  Because of the road salts, channels are just a super dangerous place to be, even during our coldest winters.

      I'm pretty sure there is still a winter only access on Smith's bay just north of where hiway 51 intersects hiway 15 at the lake.  It's just before the North Shore Marina. You'd have to trailer to there but then you'd have the main lake to fish.

      Pheasants banded in Nobles and Redwood counties Pheasant hunters can voluntarily report roosters that were banded as part of a study being conducted by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  DNR Farmland Wildlife Populations and Research Group workers captured and banded roosters during a research project. The two study areas involved in the project are the Lamberton Wildlife Management Area complex in Redwood County and the Worthington Wells Project Area south of Worthington, located in Nobles County. Although the study is focused on hen pheasants and their broods, roosters were also opportunistically captured in an attempt to collect survival information on males. A plain metal leg band with a unique identifying number was placed on the right leg of each rooster. Hunters are asked to contact the Farmland Wildlife Research Group to report harvest information. The band number, date of harvest, and location information (WMA name or GPS coordinates preferred) are requested. If hunters want information on when and where the bird was initially captured, they may also provide their contact information so that researchers can return their call. GPS locations and personal data will not be made public. Although Minnesota has a rooster-only hunting season, hunters who come across a dead radio-collared and/or banded hen are also asked to call with information so that researchers can refine their hen data. To voluntarily report birds marked as part of this study, contact Lindsey Messinger, 507-642-8478, ext. 224. Alternatively, people may contact Lindsey by email at Lindsey.Messinger@state.mn.us. This work is funded in part through the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act. Additional details about pheasant hunting are available at mndnr.gov/hunting/pheasant.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, in conjunction with the Michigan and Wisconsin natural resources departments, will take questions about the Lake States Forest Bat Habitat Conservation Plan at 3 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 31. The phone conference is for anyone interested in the integration of forest practices with conservation measures to support bat populations.  Forest bat populations are rapidly declining, and one or more species may soon be reclassified as endangered. If reclassified, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides the opportunity to develop a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP). An HCP helps endangered species recover by setting out habitat conservation plans during land management activities. In preparation, Minnesota and neighboring states are developing a forest bat HCP that aims to maintain bat habitat and allow important forest management activities to continue. Input from forest land owners, forest managers, conservation groups and other stakeholders is essential to developing an effective HCP. An introductory video describing the HCP process and how to participate is available at https://youtu.be/46IAHTaqJQE. The DNR encourages participants to watch the video prior to the Oct. 31 question and answer session. To access the session, in the ten minutes prior to the call start time, participants should dial 855-802-6790 toll-free and, at the prompt, enter the conference ID code 93441291. Anyone requiring an accommodation to participate in the phone conference is asked to email bathcp.dnr@state.mn.us or call 651-259-5919 as early as possible. More information is available at mndnr.gov/bathcp.   Contact: Lindsey Messinger, wildlife research biologist, 507-642-8478, ext. 224.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
