      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 .

Little "Extras" in Fish Houses?

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

I like "dinging" around with things, so I was wondering what little extras you have added to your houses?

Going to pick up the house before the big snowstorm this weekend, so just wondering what you guys have done.

Last year I "sheeted" out the inside with paneling. Any other things you have seen or have done yourself?

Thanks

Gotta have a cheap can crusher on the wall, saves a lot of room for the garbage. I also bought a little shelter for a bathroom. And then a camp toilet inside. Thats for lake of the woods where there are soo many people around. Shelves shelves shelves and hooks hooks hooks. Places to hang just about anything..

Seems pretty flimsly but works pretty darn good.

Ok -- Sorry Dead.

How about a Diet Fresca?

Most of you guys are too young to remember the Fresca.

I remember being at Red Willow for a softball tourney about 18 years ago and they didn't have anything that I ordered, so I just kept getting more off the wall and making the guys laugh. Then I started over, "I'll just take a Dew." Then like, Red, White and Blue and Hamms.

I knew they didn't serve3 beer so that made it fun. The guys were almost crying they were laughing so hard.

The old lady, "I told you no Dew." and then I went through all of them again. Really odd stuff I knew they didn't have. I finally said, "Ok, Just a Fresca."

I thought she gave up until she cam up to our table with an old, dusty can of Fresca. She had quite the look on her face!

The joke was on me and one guy had milk coming out of his nose he was laughing so hard.

Geez Hit,

Talking Red Willow. Brought back a little flood of the old days. I grew up in Cooperstown so we played a lot of ball up there. The Haines' were great people. We used to deer hunt northeast of the lake and on the other side of the refuge on the west side of the lake. Some of the best tounaments around.

Thanks for the memories.

I'm a classmate of Linda. We lived about a block and a half from them. When we were little we looked up to Darrell. He went by the nickname, "Nuts". Golfed a lot with him through high school. Terry was in my sister's class, I think. Mike and Lillian always treated us well when we came over. Were you also related to the Hagles then too?

I had a brother that worked at Red Willow as a kid too. It would have been in the 1980-1984 range.

My name is Greg Stetz. There were four of us brothers that played up there but not all at the same time. The brother that worked at Red Willow was Bryan. He is better known, actually only known, as Sumo.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early
    • ZachD
      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.
    • PRO-V
      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.

      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.

      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks

      Yesterday the MN DNR announced a license requirement change effective NOW for this ice season. All Wheel House and other fishing structures which cannot be folded / collapsed must be licensed even if you remove the house when you get off the ice.

      Harvest climbs 16 percent from 2016 Minnesota firearms hunters registered 161,057 deer through the third weekend of deer season, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  Preliminary results through the third weekend show that the number of deer registered was up 16 percent from 2016. Of the deer harvested, 53 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent during the same period in 2016. In Zone 1, in northeastern Minnesota, total firearms harvest was up 36 percent. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 10 percent and Zone 3, in southeastern Minnesota, was down 5 percent. “The conditions were generally good for hunters participating in the last week of the Zone 1 season and for the start of the 3B season in the southeast,” said Erik Thorson, acting big game program leader, “which provided a boost to the statewide firearms harvest.” Based upon the number of antlerless permits available and the number of permit areas that allow multiple deer to be taken, the DNR is projecting the 2017 total deer harvest to be around 200,000. The 2016 total harvest was 173,213 and to date firearms and archery hunters have harvested about 180,000 deer this year. In much of Minnesota, the firearms deer season ended Nov. 12, and the northern rifle zone season ended Nov. 19. The late southeast firearms deer season is open through Sunday, Nov. 26. The muzzleloader season begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. More information on deer management can be found at mndnr.gov/deer. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
