      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 .

MONSTER QUEST--Doglike creature

Recommended Posts

USPENAMC

anybody catch the episode of monster quest talking about a Dog like/wolf like creature possible hybrid that has attacked pets and scared people.

of course like most shows they cant prove anything in the end. here are a few of the things they have covered and bit of descriptions its interesting to watch to say the least..even if you dont believe just for entertainment.

Mutant Canines - Mans best friend is many times our last line of defense. But something strange is killing Fido. In 2006, a rash of pets were killed in Maine and Minnesota by a beast locals describe as a mutant. But there are more than just stories, a creature was hit by a car and the body was found. This strange looking creature will be DNA tested to see what it really is. And two MonsterQuest winter expeditions will be launched to trap other dog killers still at large.

Wednesday December 5th at 10PM

Lions in the Suburbs - Attacks by mountain lions make headlines across the U.S. But some people say they are seeing something else...large black cats. From Texas to Minnesota to West Virginia, MonsterQuest will follow the eyewitness accounts and physical evidence of these demon cats. Pictures and law enforcement encounters prove a big black cat is out there but what is it? While they resemble a mountain lion, there is no such thing as a black mountain lion. Bones from a carcass, eyewitnesses claim was a huge black cat, will be put to the DNA test.

Wednesday December 12th at 10PM

Giant Fish - The movie Jaws scared an entire generation off of ocean beaches...but there are monsters lurking in freshwater lakes and rivers too. Are these just fish stories or are they real? From the Artic Circle to the Amazon, MonsterQuest will launch expeditions to find the biggest and nastiest giant fresh water fish. From catfish large enough to swallow kids whole to trout as large as a boat. Scientists will deploy giant lures and underwater cameras in a search for monster fish.

Wednesday December 19th at 10PM

Swamp Beast - The vast swamps of Louisiana and Florida hide many animals...including a beast locals call The Swamp Creature. At 7 ft tall, with red hair, and a rotten egg smell this beast has been nicknamed The Skunk Ape. For the first time, bloodhounds will be used to track the elusive creature. And sexual ape pheromone chips will be used to guide the bloodhounds to their prey.

Wednesday December 26th at 10PM

Stalin's Ape Man - In 2006, the NY times revealed a devilish plan by Soviet dictator Josef Stalin to create monsters by crossing humans with apes. But was it real? And how far did he get? This MonsterQuest scientific journey will travel to Russia to find out. We will also look at the many other efforts, both by man and Mother Nature, to combine the strength of apes with the intelligence of man. This is a real Frankenstein story& from head transplants in the U.S. to cases of ape on human attacks. Man and Apes are not as different as you might think.

Wednesday January 2nd at 10PM

Creatures from the 4th Dimension - For decades cameras have been capturing images of a flying, torpedo-like creature. So fast it cannot be seen with the naked eye. Some think it is a military weapon, others believe it may be a creature from another dimension. But just what is it? This MonsterQuest scientific journey will use super high speed photography, physics and even a wind tunnel experiment to shed light on a creature simply referred to as Rods.

Wednesday January 9th at 10PM

The Real Hobbit - A MonsterQuest expedition will deploy researchers and the latest technology into the jungle, searching for evidence of a creature natives describe as half man, half ape.

Wednesday January 16th at 10PM

American Werewolf - Eyewitnesses in Wisconsin and Michigan report seeing a tall hairy man - beast some describe as a dogman...a centuries old legend based on myth, not a real animal. But what are they seeing? MonsterQuest will deploy professional hunters and trackers in an area with recent sightings, armed with a tranquilizer gun. And for the first time eyewitness accounts will be put to the test, using polygraphs and hypnosis&the results will astonish.

They featured Pine River in MN as well, where a guy got bit by a northern smile.gif Also WI where they did show a HUGE jaw of a musky that was found. That thing was unreal.

But the show was kinda "duh" and over sensationalized, but was fun to watch last night while having a few beers wink.gif and joke about it.

BTW - the doglike show, the big cat show, and the freshwater giants show all featured MN. Maybe we just have plenty of mythical or wierd beasts, huh? wink.gif

There was a roadkill found by Barnesville that could not be identified as a wolf or a dog. The fur buyer in FF. had it. A good friend of mine [he runs a trapline]looked at it and thought is was a crossbreed. He was telling me about this and then I told him about the Monster Quest show. It was quite a coincidence. He never saw the show. Anyway Barneville is only about 7 miles or so cross country from Rolog where the show was filmed. So in my mind, theres your monster.

I live and work in Clay County only a few miles from the spot that the History Channel filmed. We were laughing at this. It is good entertainment. We have had wolf hybreds for years in the area. I loved the fact that the so-called wildlife expert they used is a Scheels optics buyer. They never called our local C.O. or our sheriff's office on any reports or sighting of this "creature". But was good entertainment non the less.

my friends in South Texas have the myth of the Chupacabra in Cuero Texas, this October when I was there, the lady who found one actually had the head of this beast on display in a cooler at thier festival.

I believe it was Texas A&M that did a study and it was something like a mange coyote or something, but not fully conclusive, If you search the web for Cuero Texas and the Chupacabra there are actual pictures of this thing.

Did this run on the history channel? I think I knew a guy that spoke on the big fish section...I believe they contracted Ron Schara's filming crew to tape it if this is the same one.

      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!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
