      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 .

So we are sitting on the lake in the ice house and its 12/13/07 and the other "guide from the metro" pulls out his phone to check the time. Its falls out of his hand into the hole and you can watch it on the fish finder go all the way to the bottom. So we put a small flashlight on a line down the hole and there is the phone sitting there on the bottom. So he gets down with a jigging spoon on his line and trys to hook it. He goes at it for about 15 minutes and he hooks it and pulls it up and out of the hole. Just so you know we are sitting in about 15 feet of water. When he pulls the phone out of the hole it is still working and searching for service. . .. I don't know how but it is still working. AMAZING>>>>>> tell me about your crazy ice stories.

i was with a couple of friends (some inexperenced) my buddy set his rod up and droped his line, then helped another buddy rig up. when he turned to check on his rod, he saw his rod being pulled down the hole. To make a long story short, we found the rod (with the fish on it) about 3 hours later on the aqua view. 8 holes later we finally snaged the rod and caught the fish

Well, you might not believe me but here we go... on the 2005 fishing opener my cell phone slipped out of my jacket pocket into the lake. I watched it hit the bottom in 12 feet of clear water. I thought it was done for sure so we kept fishing. After about 2 hours I decided to go back to the spot and get the phone. Maybe it's under warranty? I didn't know. Anyhow, I found the spot again and could see the phone sitting on the bottom of the lake. I stripped down to my boxers jumped in and got the phone. I dried it out for a few days and it would almost turn on. So I took it in to Verizon and they replaced the battery, under warranty, and that was all it took! The phone worked perfectly for the next year and half until I upgraded it!! I should have called LG and told them about it. I can't imagine all their phones would have the same result after being under water for 2 hours, but it makes for a good story.

I have an I580 that was in water at NW metro area lake launch for about 10 minutes this spring. Dove down in power loading 6-8" deep hole and finally found it. Took it home and drained water out of some area's and dismantled as far down as I could and let it sit under a bulb style work lamp for 24 hours. Reassembled and I works to this day. I always thought speaker phone suffered a little bit, but most times it works great.

I just bought the thing a month or two before and did not buy insurance. I did not want to pay for a new phone and just started a new contract.

I would say, the first thing to do, is shut if off. Then remove battery and panels and try to drain as much water out at first. Head home and take apart and dry with blow dryer or heat lamp.

I was the one that dropped my phone in last night fishing with the metroiceguide and the funny thing is that its the second time that its has happened to me, and the second time I got it back. I guess I have bad luck with that (or maybe good luck?). My first one that got dropped in worked for like 6 months after it got dumped in before I got another. This one is one of verizon's g'zone type V phones so its waterproof to 3 feet but it was about 15 feet down. I got to give credit to this phone cause its been in the washing machine for a cycle too. What an interesting end to a night fishing though.

i know a guy that keeps his pepermint schnaaps floating in an extra hole to keep it just the right temperature. a few years back, he gets settled into his spot, takes the bottle out and sets in the hole only to see it sink right to the bottom. i guess maybe putting half empty bottles in the hole instead of full ones would be a good idea.

Option "B"

Shake out the water ASAP.

Remove battery and memory card if installed, shake it some more.

Heat oven to 170 degrees

While oven is heating up, shake more water out of cell phone if you didn't do it already, do it some more anyway.

DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR! IT WILL DESTROY THE LCD.

Place phone on plate in heated oven, cook for an hour or so until done, remove plate and phone, let cool.

Replace battery's and memory card.

Works on cameras to, but you may have a fogged display for a while.

Note: It only works a couple times and then the afore mentioned device will start to deteriorate.

Above directions tested numerous times by me, MSRD, on cel phones and a Canon camera and it has worked for me more times than I'll admit. Good luck, my thought has been "I got nothing to lose, it's already trashed"

Nor will admit or be responsible if it still don't work for ya.

i have had a cell phone go through the wash on 2 different occasions and still work. eventually i upgraded to a nicer phone and of course when i dropped that one in a lake for about 5 seconds in 2 feet of water it stopped working. Now i am back to using the phone that went through the wash 2 times and it still is working perfectly fine and its over 4 years old.

I was in my portable with 2 holes drilled. I dropped my wallet into one of the holes and it sunk. I was sitting there upset when a large carp came to the surface in one of the holes. A second carp with my wallet in its mouth come up out of the second hole. They tossed my wallet back and forth a few times then tossed it to me.

It was the first time I had ever seen carp to carp walleting.

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
