      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 I was out fishing last night on a small lake (pond), me and a friend were the only 2 people on this lake. Then outcomes a few snowmobiles, racing back and forth across the lake. They could have driven anywhere on the lake. They would race from one side to the other, over and over. Now this is a small lake, but we were fishing close to one side, and they would race sometimes as close as 20ft from us at 60+ mph, they did this for about 45 minutes, then we just left.

I realize that I dont own the lake, but I wish they realized they dont either, and respect others on it!

Sounds like reckless endangerment to me, worth reporting if you have their #'s, even if law enforcment doesn't do anything.

20 feet away traveling 60 MPH is dangerously close.

If your measurements of distance and speed are accurate they were taking your live in their hands.

Probably worth a call to 911. Describe the sleds and drivers as they will probably be back out there.

I thought about it, but figured they would get bored of driving back and forth, I was wrong. It was dark and there was more of them then us. I let them know I wasnt to happy about it, but then they just started whipping cookies about 100ft away. Then would race back past us. We got fish before they got on the lake, but nothing afterwards, so we left.

I would have turned them in.

That's why I ALWAYS carry my Canon ELPH camera. It has a great video feature - and 4 gig flashcards are cheap, so you can record a LOT.

I would have LOVED to show this to the CO's...

I know it really p.o.'d me, I thought about wipping snow balls at them as they flew by, but choose to be the good guy. If I would of had a chance to see the #'s on the side I would have called them in.

I saw some guys do the same thing up at lake of the woods. They where flying through a bunch of perms. We tried to flag them down but they wouldnt stop. About the tenth time past some old boy opened up his door and tossed out an empty minnow bucket. Nocked the guy right off the sled. We did't see the sleds anymore that week.

You handled yourself fine !

We didn't have to read about you or the other guy in the paper and that is good news. You never know what kind of a Nut Case you will run into on the roads or lake or in the woods.

Don't let them get to you , I'd try to forget about it.

You handled your self very well. I don't know if I would have been able to. I think I would have found something very big and heavy and sick it somewhere... LOL

Forget about them and just go fish. If they do it again, get the numbers and call the cops.

Although a good idea Otter I dont think the people that need the seminar would show up. I have been on the recieving end of this kind of thing winter and summer some people just have no common sense probably brought up that way or never taught right. We need to make sure we all raise our kids to respect others cant do much about the other people.

I agree totally. I've been teaching my 8 year old about driving my boat. And if you ask him what is the first thing you do when driving a boat, he will tell you to watch for other boaters, because they my not be watching for you.

Thanks for saving me, reading this made the situation a little easier to handle this morning when some guy shows up at 6:30 a.m drills a few holes 30 feet from my house and setups a portable, now the drilling holes I don't have a problem with nor getting setup thats part of fishing, but when you decide that you want to use your truck as a rock concert, come on. For over a hour this morning this guy has his doors shut on the truck with the tunes blasted so he could hear it in his portable, there was so much base coming out of there I thought the ice was going to start busting up, and then people can't figure out why they don't catch anything, hmm, I have no idea. But anyway I read this post the other day and realized that It's better to handle yourself in a calm collective manner than let some moron get to a person, a little ranting, yes. But geesh can't a guy sleep.

It helps to rant at times, just best to give it some time after the incident to let yourself cool off.

I couldn't here the words as he had to much base going on, I did notice one other perm was getting a little upset himself as he decided to crank his tunes up for a short stint but apperantly the guy didn't get the drift, oh well, the weekend warriors are gone for another week, time for some solitude.

If you would have heard the words, you could have given him a little dose of morning karaoke.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
