      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 .

What were we Thinking?????

Recommended Posts

we decided today was gonna be a great day to head out do some coyote calling..........

We started out before sunrise and if you weren't in the wind, it wasn't that bad, until you faced the wind. We made 6 sets, and had no responders, nothing, nada, el zippo. In fact we didn't even call in a crow. We saw a lot of coyote tracks, but let's face it, with a temperature that didn't see the good side of zero until we got home and 20-30 mph winds, the coyotes must have been laughing themselves silly.

Oh well, it was better than staying at home in the house.....Thank god for Under Armor and polar fleece

to be honest I will take below degree weather any day with a little wind, not 25mph wind but some! Another thing you gotta keep in mind that it is the start of a full moon, they will be doing most of their traveling under the moon for the next couple of days.

yeah, the wind really took the starch out of our briches....timing sucked too, but it was the only time we could get together, correct that, it was the only time I could get out......

what does an out of state license cost a guy in ND now. Also, in the western part of the state are there praire dogs and trout steams like in SD? Trying to get some stuff together for a trip in the summer of 2009. It will take me that long to get all the ammo loaded up....

Speaking of cold weather...what's your thoughts on severely cold mornings and nights? We had -22 air temps last night, and they're calling for close to -30 tonight if it stays clear. If there's little wind, will the coyotes/fox move more during the middle of the day, or lay around soaking up as much sun as they can and look for food when it's the coldest? I'm planning to do some serious scouting this afternoon and maybe try a couple sets Wed. and Thursday depending on what I find.

My personal opinion, the colder the better! I love to see -20 below temps!! Dress up warm, stay safe, and keep each stand short and sweet.

if theres no wind and decent moon light; we've seen active yotes moving at nights with temps in the -20's. thats what makes 'em hard to hunt; they might be feeding all night and sleeping all day.

I got two responses under the moon last night, one was my first set at about -8. The other was at 2am with -16. For the most part i feel they move from dark to about 12-2am if it isn't to cold, above 10-15below, After that i think they wait until midmorning and are cruising around. They were out last night so this morning there wasnt a thing, tommorow morning, if the wind stays down they will be out but best to wait til 9-10am before looking. They will be out in the moon tomorrow night to. Its kind of a gamble. Some days they are out and some nights they are out. I have called all moon nights with nothing, only to see them out a noon the next day. If i could figure it out i'd be rich.

Let the cold temps and the moon work for you, not against you!

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish

      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
