      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 .

In the summer, yes I do. We have a cabin on the southwest side and I try to make it up any weekend I do not have work related conflicts. I am a junior at SMSU in Marshall, so it is hard to get up often in the winter. I have been up once this winter, and am planning another trip in march. IMO it is the greatest get-away lake in the state. It is so peaceful up there, and the fish bite year-round.

winniewalleye-

Can I ask what resort you go out of? We are thinking about moving our skid house down from Red. We stopped at Denny's and they seemed like they had a pretty well run operation. Just wondering what else there is.

Amen to that winniewalleye. We stay at 4 seasons every year and there is nothing better than being the first one on that lake in the morning in the summer.

We actually did stop by Highbanks, on the advice of the river rat bait shop. But they said that they are unable to store houses during the off season. But they looked like they ran a very good operation.

Not to bump off this thread but........Can I ask winniewalleye why didn't you just go to Bemidji State rather than Southwest? Cuz then your only an hour from your cabin, and your in God's country 9 months out of the year. As you can tell I went to BSU and loved it, but the only downer part is trying to find a full time job here if you want to stay. Once you live here you dont want to leave and its hard to swallow the fact that you might have to go back down south (St. Cloud area, cities, southern minny), even if the money is better. My motto is the farther away from the cities I am the better.

Our cabin is actually on the Four Seasons resort. It is a great location, but in the winter they do not do much for ice fishermen. Their cabins are open with groomed snowmobile trails to the door and to the lake, but no sleeper houses or anything. In response to the college question, I absolutely love it down here in marshall. It is a very different atmosphere than the St. Cloud area, plus there are roosters everywhere! I chose SMSU for their education program and the proximity to all of the hunting land that I have access to. Our Mustangs stuck it to your Beavers a few weeks back on the hard court if I do recall correctly grin.gif

In the summer, Four Seasons is the best place to go. But in the winter (as has been mentioned) they don't have a lot going on there. Highbanks provides great service for ice fisherpeoples, and is closer to the good hardwater fishing anyway.

I'll be out on Winnie this weekend - good luck to me all of you fishing in the tropical weather this weekend!

I'd say 4 years ago? Judd's was a great place to stay and "old man Judd" as we called him was good for putting us on fish and keeping us laughing!

Thats ok, the bball program there is still rebuilding cuz they were doing pretty good when I went to college there but the program has gone through as many coaches as the Timberwolves so you can't blame the program for going down hill last year. Plus I never really worried about the sport scene at BSU, which was odd cuz my major was sports management...but I was more worried about what lake to fish or what track of state lake I should put up a bow stand or the suckers were running and getting the spears ready! I guess there is some really good bird hunting down there, and even around st. cloud but Im not much of a bird hunter, maybe would go for some partridge (grouse) a few times a year and scout for deer sign while I did that, but I do miss the fishing!

      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?

      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.

      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks

      Yesterday the MN DNR announced a license requirement change effective NOW for this ice season. All Wheel House and other fishing structures which cannot be folded / collapsed must be licensed even if you remove the house when you get off the ice.

      Harvest climbs 16 percent from 2016 Minnesota firearms hunters registered 161,057 deer through the third weekend of deer season, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  Preliminary results through the third weekend show that the number of deer registered was up 16 percent from 2016. Of the deer harvested, 53 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent during the same period in 2016. In Zone 1, in northeastern Minnesota, total firearms harvest was up 36 percent. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 10 percent and Zone 3, in southeastern Minnesota, was down 5 percent. “The conditions were generally good for hunters participating in the last week of the Zone 1 season and for the start of the 3B season in the southeast,” said Erik Thorson, acting big game program leader, “which provided a boost to the statewide firearms harvest.” Based upon the number of antlerless permits available and the number of permit areas that allow multiple deer to be taken, the DNR is projecting the 2017 total deer harvest to be around 200,000. The 2016 total harvest was 173,213 and to date firearms and archery hunters have harvested about 180,000 deer this year. In much of Minnesota, the firearms deer season ended Nov. 12, and the northern rifle zone season ended Nov. 19. The late southeast firearms deer season is open through Sunday, Nov. 26. The muzzleloader season begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. More information on deer management can be found at mndnr.gov/deer. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Applications due by Saturday, Dec. 16  The Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission are seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee.  “The Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee plays a critical role in helping us achieve the vision Minnesotans have for use of the Parks and Trails Legacy Funds and creates an accessible and equitable, integrated system of state and regional parks and trails in Minnesota,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters. The committee is planning a series of regional events during the year to celebrate Legacy accomplishments and engage Minnesotans on the question, “Why Parks and Trails Legacy Matters.”  Information about the events will be available in January on Facebook (/PTLegacyMN) and on the committee website (www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac). The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents. Committee members should have expertise in two or more of the four strategic pillars of the plan: Connect people and the outdoors. Acquire land and create opportunities. Take care of what we have. Coordinate among partners. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. Meetings are scheduled every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Interested individuals may complete the application form online at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/member-application or print it out and return it to Paul Purman, Department of Natural Resources, Box 39, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155.
