      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 .

Push down the fat guy next to you and run like the wind. If you just found yourself looking down at your stomache, then yes you are the fat guy.

That thing is a monster. I highly doubt it was completely wild though. Release job? Still it would tear you up.

Dckasten was that supposedly a wild cougar? I'm prertty sure it's never been reported that anyone has been killed by a wild cougar in Minnesota. Could be wrong though. That one in the picture certainly is huge if it isn't photo shopped.

I don't know about the weight or anything. But googled the story about it. The email i received said the cat was killed in Steeleville MO. After futher research, i found that the cat was actually killed around Seattle in 2002. So from what i have found, its not photoshopped. Wish i could find more info on the kitty but found nothing. will keep researching for it.

Got this info from Bonne and Crockett Trophy Watch.

This photo was posted on Trophy Watch in 2003 and again in 2004. It seems the photo has been regaining new life as the email rumor mill starts up again. A few years ago it was rumored to be from Kansas, Iowa, Texas, and Pennsylvania. This time it was taken by a deer hunter in Missouri while it was stalking him in his stand.

The truth is that it was taken in King County, Washington in December 2002 by Roy Hisler with one shot from a .30-06. His partner, Jim Hackewitz, used a varmint call to bring in the big cat – taken within 6 miles of Bellevue, Washington (a major suburb of Seattle). The cougar was accepted into the 25th Big Game Awards at 15-7/16.

Got some good info on this cat. Weighed 190#, had an empty stomach. The Official measure of 15 7/16" is a combination of length of upper skull and widest part of skull.

The current world record is a 16 4/16" skull. They don't go by weight.

Here is a site that has some good info and corrections, and two links to other info: prairiestateoutdoors.com/index.php?/scattershooting/article/missouri_mountain_lion

There is an additional photo with the paw spread, and it looks wider than the mans head! eek.gif

Another site with a 16" scored cougar, 218#. It looks more like a regular big cougar only wrinkly.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.
    • Wanderer
      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!
    • grundy
      don't  give them any ideas!
    • fisherjmb
       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.
    • Jim Almquist
      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
