      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 .

2 people where charged with cutting down standing trees on national forest land. its an illegal activity. asking about it i was told you cant even cut up a fallen tree for fire wood. thats to bad to let that wood rot and not be able to put it to use. is there a way to get legal permission to cut up fallen trees on goverment land i wonder?

I know the son from high school, graduated a year after me. I don't know the laws now, but I thought you could take "down and dying" trees a few years back. maybe the rules have changed. But I've always known standing trees were a no-no.

boatfixer, we have a place near spring lake store, if you know them you must be from near there also. i talked to a person that i assume has reasonable knowledge of logging and thats what they old me. cant take fallen trees from goverment land. dont see the rational for just letting trees rot away when it can be used for firewood. if someone is more informed on this subject matter please speak out.

we used to be able to get a fuel wood permit from the forestry , both county and state. the federal have different rules I think.

they used to want the loggers to run over tree tops that were leftover from limbing the trees, so they would rot and get back into the soil.

then they started chipping the unused portions of the tree to haul to chip markets. now they figure that is robbing the soil of rightful nutrients.

aww I give up keeping track of their hair balled ideas.

the forestry departments keep coming up with new theories and implementing new rules. I can't keep track of it.

I know you can get permits to take balsam, white pine and cedar boughs too.

you have to let them know where you got them and how many pounds/ tons you harvested etc. and pay a fee accordingly.

not that many years ago, the county forester told me I could take live trees from ditch - road rights of way. not full sized trees, but something like 2 - 5 footers and such. he also told me that in doing so, they did not want big craters left behind, that I would need to replace the soil where the tree was dug from(safety issue I guess).

I am not for lobbing off a tree top, basicly ruining the tree from further development, but I see nothing wrong with cutting the family a christmas tree off of public land, in an inconspicuous manner.

I like to take the kids for a hike in a big spruce bog and find a nice spruce tree with good form.

fake trees suck.

On the Chippewa National Forest you can take dead and down trees for fire wood as long as you get a permit from one of the district offices. On the National Forests they are all for somebody going in after a timber sale and collecting the left over limbs and branches to be chipped, this I think is done with a small contract. This saves them in the long run because otherwise they often have the trees whole skidded to the landing and then limbed and the piles burned or they have the logger pile the slash and burned or another seperate contract to pile the slash and then burned, this is for wildfire protection or for tree planting.

this year they logged many areas in the chippewa national forest near longville, and they they left lots of waisted wood and branches laying around, what a shame, they are not giving out any permits for this left over wood and you don't want to get caught taking it either, it is a shame!

a few years back they would issue permits but not any more.

I guess it gets pretty bad during the holidays.

At the U of MN campus, they spray their conifers with a little chemistry concoction. When the thieves get home and put up their trees tops or entire tree, the plant warms to room temperature, the spray on solution kicks in, and the whole room smells like skunk.

Should deter a few thieves. Doesn't work in the Chippewa though. ooo.gif

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!

      Any where from 12' to 30' humps. Bass and a few walleyes setting up on top and sides of these humps. Cliff

      Duck hunting is expected to be good when Minnesota’s regular waterfowl season opens a half-hour before sunrise on Saturday, Sept. 23. “The number of breeding ducks in Minnesota and North America has been good in recent years, so we’re optimistic that will result in a good duck season,” said Steve Cordts, waterfowl specialist with the Department of Natural Resources. “Wetland habitat conditions and wild rice lakes are in pretty good shape.  Canada goose populations remain high as well, so there’s lots of opportunity to hunt geese this fall.” Duck seasons and limits
      The duck season structure is similar to recent years. The waterfowl seasons are based on a federal framework that applies to all states in the Mississippi Flyway. Waterfowl hunting regulations are available wherever DNR licenses are sold and online at mndnr.gov/regulations/hunting. Duck season will be open for 60 days in each of the three waterfowl zones: In the north zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Tuesday, Nov. 21. In the central zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 1, closes for five days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 7, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 26. In the south zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Oct. 1, closes for 12 days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 14, and runs through Sunday, Dec. 3. The daily duck bag limit remains six per day. The mallard bag limit remains four per day, including no more than two hen mallards. The daily bag limits are three for wood duck and scaup; and two for redheads, canvasbacks and black ducks and one for pintails. The DNR will post a weekly waterfowl migration report each week during the duck season. The reports are typically posted on Thursday afternoon at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl. Goose and sandhill crane seasons
      Minnesota’s goose season will reopen in conjunction with the duck season statewide on Sept. 23, with a bag limit of three dark geese per day the entire season. “Dark” geese include Canada geese, white-fronted geese and brant. The daily bag limit for light geese is 20. “Light geese” include snow, blue and Ross’s geese.  Goose season will be closed in the central and south duck zones when duck season is closed. The season for sandhill cranes remains open through Sunday, Oct. 22 in the northwest goose and sandhill crane zone only. The daily bag limit will be one sandhill crane per day. A $3 sandhill crane permit is required in addition to a small game hunting license. More information on duck, goose, sandhill crane and other migratory bird hunting is available in the 2017 Minnesota Waterfowl Hunting Regulations booklet from license vendors and online at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl.

      Citizens interested in volunteering to discuss Lake of the Woods fish and habitat can apply to participate in the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Applications must be completed by Monday, Oct. 10, and are available online at mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. “Input provided by this group will be used to update the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan for 2018 to 2023,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette area fisheries supervisor. “Volunteers will give valuable stakeholder perspectives regarding important fisheries and habitat protection strategies for Lake of the Woods and the surrounding watershed,” Talmage said. Group members will meet five or six times between December and May to cover topics including walleye and sauger management, sportfish population objectives, habitat priorities and invasive species. Talmage said protecting the high quality resources within Lake of the Woods is important. “While walleye in Lake of the Woods are a big focus of the DNR’s management efforts, the lake also offers a wide range of fishing and other recreational opportunities that are vital to local communities, important to northern Minnesota and of significant value statewide,” Talmage said. For additional information on the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group and the self-nomination process, contact the DNR Baudette area fisheries office, 218-634-2522.
