      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 .

Schmidt baiting update

Well it has taken sometime to confirm, but it is true that the Schmidts continue to prove what kind of sportsman they truely are!! Conservation officers witnessed the killing of a nice 8 point buck over a pile of corn. They then confronted and and confiscated the deer. At one of the homes they found several more deer that were presumed to be taken by illegal methods.

[Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.]

Nobody else hunts the area so the deer are not pressured. Sit in your stand and wait, just like the kids in our party do! Put your time in and shoot deer legally-on your property and by fair chase. Take the time to set up good stands and clear shooting lanes so you don't have to shoot on to someone elses property!!

Sorry for the long message, but this stuff has been going on for a long time. Whether it is trespassing or baiting it is wrong and hope they take away there hunting rights for a while!!

Good post Fishhawk! I couldn't agree more!

It is extremely frustrating to learn that neighboring hunters are baiting the deer, and then illegally shooting them! It is not only illegal, but also immoral in the fact that they are concentrating the deer's movement into their own property while hunters on neighboring lands see fewer deer.

Very lazy and selfish if you ask me!

Eagle Eyes, I think if you knew these gentlemen you'd have a different opinion. I don't care who it is as long as they got caught which it sounds like they did. Also this isn't just a fishing reports page for Buffalo/Annandale/Big Lake.

Facts? How about calling Rick Reller the area CO. You dont't care how people take them, just that they are off the road? Very intelligent way of replying. Personally I would like my kids to follow the law, so I live that way everyday.

EagleEyes -

First off the facts are straight.

Second, it is not whining to voice frustration over people illegally baiting and shooting deer. It's a bad problem, and something that should be talked about on forums like this.

Third and foremost, if you could care less about the subject then why are you bothering to reply to it? Why don't you just read the fishing reports thread and be happy with that?

I heard from reliable sources that last winter they got busted and ticketed for having over 100 crappies in one day!

They even give rednecks a bad name!!

My family has been a neighbor of the Schmidts for many years, I am happy to hear that they have got what they diserved. We all love to enjoy the outdoors and its a shame when somone takes it for granted or thinks they are above the law.

Hey Mgreseth, are you Matt or Mark? I went to high school with Matt. Do you get out and do any bowhunting by chance? The reason I ask is that I saw a very nice buck not too far from your parents place last weekend. The Schmidts must not have got to this one...

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
