      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 .

Lets hope the puppies keep losing and land the #1 pick. If they do who are some of the players out there with the potential to go #1. I know it is early but one has to be excited about something

Assuming they come out after their freshman year, I think Derrick Rose and Michael Beasley will be the top two picks. Who goes first, I think will depend on that team's needs. But things could change, it's still early.

Unfortunately, you can't draft a coach (the Wolves' biggest need!). I wouldn't mind seeing Hibbert in a Wolves jersey. They need a center so big Al can stay at power forward. Hibbert would be a nice fit, although I don't see him as a top pick. The Wolves with their lottery luck will likely have the number 4 pick, in which case, Hibbert might be a good pick. I'm going to stick to my guns that Rose and Beasley are the top 2 picks. Kind of like last year when you had Oden and Durant as the top 2 and then everyone else.

#1 pick, yeah right. How many times have the Wolves had the best chance to win the lottery, 2,3, maybe 4 times. I maybe wrong but didn't they have the best chance to get Shaq the year he came out and ended up with Laettner or J.R. Rider. I hope they get the first pick but with the Wolves luck they won't. mad.gif

Laettner was better in college than Shaq, weird, but true. Don't forget they took Longley one season with their top pick.

crazy.gifWolves don't need a first pick cuz they can't develop players-- look at the last couple top picks and their track record--KM doesn't have the mojo. Take #1 and trade for a proven player not a project -- crazy.gif

NO matter what they do they will screw it up. I say ask McHale what to do, then do the complete opposite. That should improve the team.

We seem tohave a problem drafting. We draft a very good pro ready player and then we trade them for some talented but not yet ready for prime time player. Draft Ray Allen and trade hime for Marbury. Draft Brandon Roy and trade him for Randy Foye. McHale is a moron.

Even if we get the first pick -- we have not had a lot of luck picking the right guy -- remember Eni Ebbbe or whatever his name was? Other than Garnett, we have not been "strong" in that area.

Maybe we can just throw a dart at the board?

What am i saying? If we had 99 chances for the ball and one team had one of the balls -- well i think we know how that would go. \:\(

It don't matter when Foye gets back and Ratliff with those to they'll still be really bad but will be able to win more games. As of last night Miami has lost 14 in a row and Seattle has lost 8 in a row I thought we were in line to have the most ping pong balls but I think Miami and Seattle might have something to say about that.

      I've been fishing all my life, but I've only recently started seriously catfishing. I've discovered a spot near my home on the Minnesota river where the current comes to a still near a small, no longer active dam where there are rocks and tons of baitfish, which I assume should be a good spot for big flatheads. I've fished this spot a few days now and have only successfully pulled out a small flathead of maybe 5 or 6 pounds on a medium sized live sucker about a foot below a bobber. For your experienced catters, what's the best approach for big cats this time of year? Do you prefer live bait or cut bait? When using cut bait are heads or filets better? Since MN only allows one rod out should I be focusing my bait near the bottom of the river or a couple feet under a bobber? I tend to fish between 7pm-10pm although I'd like to try more late night fishing. Thanks for any suggestions!

      Had similar issues.  I was up for three weeks, each week it was a different set of boats encroaching.  I don't think you can do to much about the one week fishermen. They are in a panic to find fish and when the see one go in the boat, look out. One time,  I was looping in and out of a small spot picked up nice fish and this guy comes in right on that spot and starts jigging.  I couldn't even get back to it.  He would have never know it was there.  I just leave and find more fish.

      Definitely that time of year again.  Load the boat full of kids and put the raps out and be prepared to catch a lot of fish.  Only gets better from here.  Pic of my son and his cousin and their limits.  Good memories being made.

      When archery deer season opens Saturday, Sept. 16, mandatory testing for chronic wasting disease and restrictions on moving deer carcasses begins again in southeastern Minnesota’s CWD management zone, deer permit area 603.  “With archery deer season approaching, hunters are encouraged to plan ahead and be aware of the testing that will be required and the specifics about when they can and can’t move carcasses out of the CWD zone,” said Lou Cornicelli, wildlife research manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Archery hunters in deer permit area (DPA) 603 will be required to submit the head from all adult deer 1 year old or older so lymph nodes can be tested for CWD. Hunters cannot remove the carcass or carcass remains from the CWD zone until a negative test result is reported. Carcass movement restrictions do allow hunters to immediately transport out of the zone quarters or other deer pieces without spinal column parts; boned-out meat; and antlers with a skull plate that is free of brain matter. Hunters should check page 65 of the 2017 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook for additional information. “Archery deer hunters also should check the DNR website for the DPA boundary map,” Cornicelli said. “As a reminder, the CWD management zone was created from DPAs 347 and 348, so hunters need to be mindful of what area they’re hunting.” Hunters are required to register their deer. DNR will allow phone and Internet registration during the archery season in the CWD zone. The system will be monitored for compliance and may be turned off if needed. Mandatory testing and carcass movement restrictions will remain in effect for area 603 throughout deer seasons for archery, firearm, muzzleloader and any late season hunts. Head collection boxes will be located in: Chatfield: Magnum Sports, 1 1st St., 507-867-4399. Preston: DNR area forestry office, 912 Houston St., 507-765-2740. Lanesboro: DNR area fisheries office, 23789 Grosbeak Rd., 507-467-2442. Wykoff: Goodies and Gas, 104 E Front St., 507-352-2421. Harmony: Oak Meadow Meats, 50 9th St., 507-886-6328 Archery hunters should do the following: Field dress (gut) deer as normal. Register deer via phone, internet or walk-in big game registration station. If harvest occurs late in the day, sample (head) submission and registration do not have to occur on the same day. If the deer will be mounted, a video showing how to properly cape your deer is available at bitly.com/capeadeer. Remove the head, leaving at least 4 inches of neck attached. Hunters can take meat out of the zone immediately but the carcass (head with brain and spinal column) cannot be moved outside deer permit area 603 until a negative test result is received so hunters must: Make arrangements to refrigerate the carcass before the deer is processed; Cut deer into quarters or other pieces; or Bone-out the meat. Ensure no spinal column or brain matter is included with the meat or on the antlers. Properly dispose of carcass remains. There will be a dumpster at the DNR forestry office in Preston for hunters who don’t have a way to dispose of remains. The Preston dumpster is being provided as a courtesy for deer carcass disposal only. It will be removed if people attempt to process deer there or use the dumpster for trash disposal. Bring the entire head of deer to one of five head box collection sites. Each collection box has specific instructions on how to properly submit the head for sampling. Put heads in the plastic bags provided. Use the maps provided at each box to mark an “X” where the deer was harvested. Submit this map with sample. Samples during the archery season will be submitted for testing on Mondays and Thursdays. It may take up to four business days for test results to be available.  CWD test results can be searched using a nine-digit MDNR number online at www.mndnr.gov/cwdcheck. Deer hunters should regularly check the DNR’s CWD website at mndnr.gov/cwd for the most recent information. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't know if fishing is better or worse in Minnesota, but you can get a perfectly adequate fishing boat for under 20k,  under 10k if you are ok with used.   For example, a boat like this would totally do everything you want to do... http://hotspotoutdoors.com/forums/topic/181008-2005-lund-explorer-1600-with-merc-60hp-4-stroke-efi-fully-loaded/ I don't know if this is a good price or a good boat, but you get the picture...

      Firearms and muzzleloader hunters who want to harvest antlerless deer in a deer permit area designated as lottery this hunting season are reminded they must purchase their license by Thursday, Sept. 7. Hunters who purchase their license before this date are automatically entered into the lottery for the deer permit area or special hunt area they declare.  This season, antlerless deer permits are issued by lottery in 48 of Minnesota’s 130 deer permit areas. No application is needed to take antlerless deer in permit areas with hunters choice, managed or intensive designations. Hunters who want to participate in special firearm deer hunts also need to apply for permits that are issued through a lottery, and the application deadline is Sept. 7. More information about deer permit areas, how their designations are set and special hunts is available on the deer page and in the 2017 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook.
