      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 .

Was out on pokie the other evening looking for afew crappies when i come by a spot where there had been a couple of permanent houses and you can guess the rest of the story. It must of been easier to clean the garbage out of the houses before taking them off the lake, empty booze bottles,water bottles, and a frozen styro minnow bucket. I guess people think those containers weigh so much more when they are empty that they can't carry them off the lake. I have fished this lake quite abit in the last 6 years and this year has been the worst for trash, almost ever trip out after the first part of Jan. i have picked up someone elses trash. Maybe these people should take there mom with them so they have someone to pick up after em, or even better, stay home and throw trash out in your front yard.

yeah it is quite sickening! Ice fishermen must be pretty naive thinking that all that [PoorWordUsage] isn't going to end up on the bottom of the lake when the ice goes out. I hope people aren't such slobs during the open water season.

hookset,

you can't tell people like that anytning that would make a difference.

what you can and should do , in my opinion, is call the c.o. and tell him about it. I believe in most cases, they do get around and if the house has been there a while, they often take coordinates and names or dnr numbers, just for occasions like this.

that is how they learn.

the other thing you can and should do, in my opinion is, clean it up and shake your head at the stupidity of man.

I take a nice ride around a few lakes after the snow melts and pick up all kinds of [PoorWordUsage], from wood blocks, to shitbags, to scoopers (SCORE)! to ice tackle to..well all kinds of stuff.

it usually doesn't amount to much more than a garbage bag full, but we filled two dumpsters once up on Red Lkae.

I just enjoy being out that time of year so it's no big deal to do it.

Jigglestick- I know what you mean about those people. I will probably be seeing the c. o. Pretty soon as i do most years about this time. (not many people on the lake this time of year and he likes to visit.) But until then i will just keep on pickin up and shakin my head.

I remember the mess Red Lake had back in the days of 10 thousand people a weekend chasin crappies. We often took an extra garbage bag off with us too. Haven't been there for a few years but i amagine its not as bad as it used to be.

Like the guy that i fish with always says-you can crush, bend,and fold all the empties-put them in one bag- and there still lighter and take less room then when they were full.

If by chance you know who's house was there or a vehicle description, get ahold of a local CO. Keep in mind that these idiots may fish that same spot after houses have to be off so keep an eye out for them. I'm anal about making sure everything that goes out with me comes back with me. I absolutely hate seeing people leave garbage on the ice. Lord knows I've picked up my fair share of other people's junk over the years!.

I am with you on that one brian. I pity those that are so weak from fishing that they have to leave their trash on the lake. I make a point to pick up any trash I can and once in a while a score on a bobber, rod, or scoop. This helps me pass the time when I can't catch any fish. Call me at work if you want to try for some crappies late ice. DH

      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      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.

      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.
