      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 .

How did you turn out in the great white north?

I ended up finding a few gills this morning and proceeded to join Muc33 at the Round lake tourney. Although we (I) only got one bite and one 'eye it was good enough to get me $100. This is the first time I've actually made money for a day of fishing and I kind of like it. There were 178 entrants in the contest and 17 fish were caught in three hours but it was a good time BSing and waiting for that flag to finally fly.

Yeah I know. Luck of the draw but I will take it anyway I can get it. I think we could have had more fish for our group but we weren't trying too hard. Maybe next time.

Way to bring home the bacon.....er.....fishie.....er.....CASH PP!! grin.gif

Just once I wish God would let me ice fish this season without trying to blow me across a lake.

Reelemin, TerryT, Fishin4kids, Trouble 28, myself, and a few others were out on Shetek. The weater really made moving around difficult so we just hunkered down and fished.

I thing Reelemin came in with 5 crappies, Terry T had a couple of crappies and a nice pike, I ended up catching about a dozen walleyes too small to keep and 7 dandy crappies.

I'm still kicking myself. A little over a week ago a friend of mine offered to let me use his Marcum camera for a couple of weeks. I said no thanks. Yeah, I'm that dumb. Once again I saw a ton of lookers on the flasher, but few takers no matter what I did. It seemed the ones that actually did want the bait came in so fast you couldn't even catch them on the flasher. It was fun. All in all, I'll call it a good day on the ice. Sounds like you guys had some good times down on round, too.

PerchPonder sounds like a great day on the ice. Fishing and making money - does it get any better ?

Boilerguy, that was a fun day on the ice. My gosh that wind is unbelievable down there on the prairie. I had all 4 limbs stretched holding onto the inside poles a few times. Even attached to the wheeler and me sitting i9n the seat, I thought I was going to be air born a couple of times !!! crazy.gif

Fishing was so so, Just enough action to keep ya there. Like Eric said the wind kept us from being mobile.

Lots of lookers and a nice crappie every so often would charge and nail the hook. Fun. I also iced a coulple of small (very small \:o , half a fish stick size \:D ) walleyes and a perch.

Boilerguy, its been great fishing you, good luck the rest of hard water season and I'll catch up with you when the water is wavy again. \:D

Tami, if you thought the wind was strong yesterday..... holy moses today was incredible.

Sounds like you guys and gals had a good time. We had some fun too and the Round Lake Sportsmans club had a great turn out. It was great to see SkeeterB there and some other FM'ers. Thanks for coming out.

We really found the walleyes on the night bite on Round the last two days. Gotta get my girls a plate full of fresh ones this week before the season is kaputz! So we will hit it hard and try to fill the fryer one of these nights.

      How's the bite been recently.   Coming up for the weekend and curious at what depths to start at.

      On the lighter side, I am 'SpoonBillSlayer' on that other site. For whatever reason years ago when I joined these sites I used two different userids. Both odd duck names that fit an odd duck! I just wanted to get the new updates out on this mess, it just seems like the only people being notified of it are those in  lake assoc's.  We'll see what happens.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?
