      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 .

As the formal planning process for the Greenleaf Lake State Recreation Area (SRA) begins, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will be holding a public open house on Tuesday, Jan. 29.

The open house will be in the basement of the Meeker County Courthouse in Litchfield from 5-7 p.m.

Cathi Fouchi, DNR Southern Region planner at New Ulm, said the DNR and others charged with developing a comprehensive plan want to collect as much information as possible from the public, as well as answer any questions people might have about the project.

“As the project moves forward, it’s very important that we accurately assess just what people would like to see included in the recreation area, whether that be hunting, camping, hiking, educational opportunities or other similar activities,” Fouchi noted. “We really want to hear what the citizens have to say.”

In addition to the open house, written comments can be submitted to Fouchi via e-mail at cathi.fouchi@dnr.state.mn.us or regular mail at DNR Southern Region, 261 Highway 15 South, New Ulm, Mn. 56073.

The Greenleaf Lake SRA is located between Litchfield and Hutchinson with about 1,200 acres of land enclosed within the currently proposed boundaries. To date, nearly 400 acres of land around Greenleaf and Sioux lakes have been purchased and discussion continues with other potentially willing sellers.

Mark Matuska, DNR Southern Region director at New Ulm, expressed both appreciation and excitement about the prospects for the SRA. “I believe this recreation area is going to be an extremely popular and important addition to this area of Minnesota,” Matuska said. “We’re really looking forward to moving ahead.”

Well, I hope they will allow Duck Hunting once this area turns into the SRA. I am 60 years old and have hunted there for the last 50 years starting with my father and grandfather. My sons and I continue to hunt on Sioux and Greenleaf. My sons have an appreciation for the sport and I believe it has helped to keep them away from all the crapola that kids can get into on the street. Anyway....I guess I can see some new activity on this SRA like camping, but Sioux is only 6 feet deep max. On low water years Sioux is amost useless for a small outboard motor much less a ski boat. (BTW, if they water ski on Sioux, don't fall in. The carp in the lake would eat them alive LOL).

I still have mixed feelings about the SRA. I guess the bottom line is revenue for the state and capital monetary gains on the selling of the land that local farmers no longer want to farm. Oh well, thats life I guess. Hope I don't have to turn in my 12 gauge for a pair of binoculars for guided bird watching activities out there. ("Oh look! a Dick Headed, Red Breasted Wobbler copulating with a common sparrow ! My god Harriet, its been an exciting day!").

Oh and "HEY ! You farmers !! No speeding on the bike paths Gosh darn it !!"

Thanks,

Faner50

Did anyone attend the Greenleaf State Recreation Area meeting in Litch this week? If so, what happened ? I did email the lady from the DNR about my input and she did reply thanking me for my input. Anyone? Anyone?

BTW...want to have some fun this summer? Head to Sioux Lake on a hot day. Rig up for carp. Water clarity is usually excellent and you can see carp (lots of them) swimming the shallow shore line. Toss out a glob of stink bait or dough ball (garlic scented) on a pretty good sized long shank hook. Toss it to them. POW ! 5 minute battles. Hooked one of the big ones and actually had to follow it with the trolling motor. What fun ! Lost the $5 bet on the biggest but it was a good time.

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."
