      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 .

This says Norway is the same. It also shows Games is fine for

recreation and eating fish undetermined. They are connected?

This also says Mille Lacs fish unfit to eat, but okay to recreation on the lake.

It also shows that green is too polluted to eat fish out of the Minnesota DNR has the guidelines for fish consumption posted on the lake finder portion of their website refer to that for consuming fish!

The fish in this lake have not been tested. Since none of Minnesota’s lakes tested so far have proven safe, you should follow Department of Health Guidelines for consuming fish from this or any other Minnesota lake.

Every lake in minnesota will show up as either untested or unsafe for eating fish.

Everyone quit fishing! If you read the fish consumption advisories on the DNR web site they have guidlines for children and women of child bearing age to see how much they can eat. The DNR has info on almost all lakes. You also have to look at the source of the info. They have an agenda.

"You also have to look at the source of the info. They have an agenda."

An agenda? The DNR? You mean cleaning up our lakes? HAHAHA! What a foolish statement. That pesky DNR! How dare they show concern for water quality. I suppose they are just saying there is mercury & phosphorus in the water to ensure that they have jobs in the future? That seems to be the way to denigrate anything relating to science these days. How about this- When are we going to do something about the agricultural drainge that flows right into Diamond? Drive around that lake, it is gross how many fields are tiled right into the inlets. From the DNR website:

"Residential development has occurred throughout the entire shoreline area with the exception of the southeast portion of Dogfish Bay. Agricultural row crop drainage into the lake occurs via several inlets/tiles from various locations throughout the lake.

Long term water quality and clarity trends of Diamond indicate an increasingly degraded system."

I would say that report is accurate. I've seen cows in the lake in the past. I've been stuck on mats of weeds out there as well. But if that is what you find appealing- an overgrown weed and mud pit- then by all means, you go enjoy it. I think your comment was irresponsible and uneducated.

It's not the DNR's site. He said they had an agenda, he didn't say it was a bad agenda. Cool off.

I agree with this report. DO NOT EAT the swordfish, shark, or the muskies, in green??? I would love itif swordfish and sharks did swim in green. Report must be from PETA, and not the good like People Eating Tasty Animals

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.
    • NELS-BELLS
      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.
    • FirstIce
      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.
    • icepike 1
      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
