      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 .

Today a friend of mine who has already lost his wife to cancer heard his dog yelp in his yard. Going outside he found that someone driving a Chevy truck with a snowmobile trailer with snowmobile and portable had driven through his gate and past 4 (YES 4) No Trespassing signs over 1/4 mile trying to find away onto URL without paying a $10 access fee. These fishermen had driven over his dog in his yard. As he held his dying dog in his arms the fishermen just drove away.

Thats ridiculous. Those guys should go to jail for trespassing and animal abuse.

If you can't afford the access fee, I don't know how you can afford your gas and bait to get there and fish. What a joke.

Oh and thanks for pulling our house to shore for us Kelly. We'll have to find you when we get up there to bring it home to give you a few bucks. Cause I know we would have never gotten it out of there ourselves.

Kelly, any chance he got the CO or Sherriff on them? Definitley 'meat hogs' with no regard for anyone other than themselves...

I think a nice long bootless walk from the res. line back to shore is in order for them!!!

Good Luck!

Wow, when you think some people just can't get any lower. Those "sportsmen" sound like prime candidates for retroactive abortion.

Couldn't a C.O. just follow the tire tracks to the culprit? At least try it?

I have no problem paying $10/day for a road pass. The hardwork you guys put in keeping the roads open for us and the advice that you offer is priceless, and if something does go wrong it you guys that come to the rescue. URL would be difficult to winter fish if it wasn't for you guys.

My condolences to your friend for the run of bad luck with his wife and now his best friend.

This kind of story really gets to me. There are some people out there that have no respect for others property or the hard work that goes into making Upper Red what it is for everyone that goes out there. I really doubt he was able to get the license, but if he has a good enough description of the vehicle, all the road guys could keep an eye out for him and get the police on chase when they come through. We know if they are not responsible enough to pay the 10 dollar fee to get on, they wont think twice about using the roads once they get on the lake. They'll come off using one and somebody has to help get this guy in front of a CO or the police. Absolutely no excuse for that kind of behavior. There are quite a few laws the guy broke and he could face some pretty steep penalties for his actions. Lets just hope he gets caught.

Im pretty sure Id be the one in custody if that happened to anyone I know, especially myself. There is NO reason for that- idiots probably had like $100 worth of beer but decided the $10 was too much- so not only did they break a (several) law, but killed man's best friend. Its never good wishing someones demise, but I hope those bastards get whats coming to them. Im not a very empathetic person (things happen for a reason) but when you bring animals, especially dogs into the equation... You deserve the worst and every bit of it. Accidents happen, but that is just appalling and rediculous.

It truly is amazing what stunts take place with some of these guys. The sad event with our friends dog had just taken place and fresh in my mind when I was awoke early this morning by a pick-up and trailer a few feet from my bedroom window. The best part is they where upset with ME because MY truck was blocking MY driveway at MY house and they couldn't get turned around. How dare I impeed the way to the lake? To bad my driveway is back from the lake 300 yard with a canal between me and the lake front homes.confused.gif

So there they sat wedged between a tree, my house and the plow truck in attempts to get to the lake? At first I thought these may be the same guys but the description was off. Although I bet that is the first butt chewing they got from a shirtless, shoeless guy wearing only a pair of woolpants in the middle of the woods. crazy.gif

I have seen this thread come up on the side board a couple times now. I figured it was about a flu epidemic or to much brew up at Slab Fest Saturday night.

After reading this post now, I am very, very sorry this happened to your buddy. I hope this post gets out to who ever did this and they do realize what they had done was way over the top. I have to feel deep down they probably did not know about the dog or being a MN sportsman, would like to think so. Maybe not, I do not know, but in any event I hope he pulls threw and goes on. The worst thing a person can do, is let the stuff like these guys did get to you. It could be what they want in the end anyways.

Good luck

WOW...I am truly sorry to hear this. My dogs are like my kids, I love them dearly and would be absolutely devastated if this happened to me.

I'm not even gonna get into the details of what I would do if placed in this same situation. When emotions are involved like in this instance, who knows what I would do?

I don't know this guy, his family, or his dog...but I can tell you I'm pretty fired up right now after reading this post. I gotta go before I start getting even more mad............

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T

      Here are some of the toads we have been catching on the Rum River this summer.  The biggest has been 19 1/4 inches.

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
