      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 .

Electronic Caller ?

Recommended Posts

After re-reading the regs, it seems as I might be spliting hairs with the letter of the law...

Can I use a electronic caller that is "wireless"? Meaning a controller in my hand and the speaker a few yards away with no cords between the two?

As long as we're talking electronics... How about mechanical decoys? Can they be used (legally) to get a yodel dogs attention? How about if they are remotely controlled?

You bet you can! Electronic callers with radio frequency remote controls are legal to use for predator hunting in Mn. The remote controls became legal just this year.

Electronic decoys are legal as well but, the remote controlled ones may not be since the language of the law only addresses "noise callers". My decoy will run either way but I don't use the remote function as it's just another wire to mess with in the cold! I just turn it on and let it run while using the remote to control only the e-caller.

You are correct about the caller FlyingV, if I am not mistaken, weren't you one of the driving forces behind that change in legislation???

Yes, Picks, I "helped" a little. It was a really a group effort though! Proof that the squeaky wheel gets the grease!

Stay tuned for more activity on "The Hill" to help us predator hunters! -Another hunter is making contact with his legislators this week to get "it" going.

what are we doing this year? I made multiple calls and sent about a dozen letters last year. I had other friends from around the state doing the same.....Are we getting the "mandatory spousal release time" I mentioned last year?

Keep us updated, or I am sure I will relay what is happening on here too.......

I'll let you know in a week or two. You can PM me about it over at the "predator masters" website....

It's really a small deal...

Why the big secret?

If it is a good legislative proposal why not post it here so we can all support it?

I read through your posts regarding the issue over on P.M..... I do believe a word of THANKS is in order for your efforts!!! grin.gif You'll know me by my handle "MnYoteRookie". I thought it quite fitting as this is my first "real" season chasing yodel dogs...

You're welcome Moose!

Walleye101, we will be posting about it. As soon as our guy gets to meet with his legislators, and they agree to author it, and they originate the appropriate Bill #'s, we will tell the world about it. Until that happens, there really is nothing to support so your legislators would not know anything about it or even how to find out about it. If our guy's legislators don't agree with it, then we will need to find others who will!

Give us a week or two to get it going and we will let you know. It's really a small change to current law.

FlyingV,

Don't be so humble. You are the one that carried the remote law change. It's your persistant ways that got it through.

Keep up the good work. Now if you could just get rifles at night with lights... (that one still sticks in my craw.)

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.

      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!

      Hi, I am selling my 2012 Polaris Ranger 800 XP camo. Very low miles, 1200. Full hard cab, flip out glass windshield, windshield wiper, almost like new still. Great for ice fishing, hunting and work around the house.  I also have this ad on C.L.  10,000 b/0 text me for pics, thanks.  I am located in west metro 763-two34-0837

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.
    • Meterman
      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?
