      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

Moose-Hunter

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.......

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.)

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
