      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 .

Question about Hutch area

I'm not from the Hutch area, and i have a couple questions for you guys. I am a student and considering a summer internship opportunity with a company in Hutch. Does anybody know what there is for apartments in the area. I did a little searching on the internet, but didn't find many places, and most of them wanted a 6 or 12 month lease. I would only be there from the middle of may till the middle or end of august. If anybody has any suggestions or places to look that would be great. The one problem is the company needs to know by monday if i will take the position or not. Any help would be great. Thanks guys.

There is a community college (Ridgewater) that is pretty good about finding their students housing. I would contact them...you should be able to find a sublet or something, or at least get a list of contacts.

I was also curious if there are any outdoor archery ranges, or places i could go to shoot my bow. I will need to start shooting agin come spring/summer. I like to shoot outdoors and like to be able to shoot at any distance i want, not just sit at the line and shoot 20 yards all day long.

Thanks for the help. You guys are great. I will have to take everything into consideration when making my decision.

I'm not sure what Gopher has for an archery range if any at all, but there are others in the area as well. Gopher membership is $20/yr if I recall.

Hutchinson/Little Crow Archery club along the Crow river is free I believe. It's right behind the SuperAmerica on Highway 7. Haven't used it yet, so maybe someone can confirm that.

UMD, call the college, and ask them for the Housing List, they have them there where you can go through the list to find what will fit your needs

I guess I'm not sure either. I know they shoot a lot of rifles out there, I deer hunt accross the lake from there and it never fails to have someone start shooting right at prime time every year on deer hunting weekend.

I talked a lady last night from the company that made me the offer and she made it sound like they have the housing figured out, like there is a person that is working there now that will be moving out around the time i would be moving in and that it would be arranged for me. Thanks for all the info guys. I guess i was kind of expecting to have to find my own housing.

I know folks in the Little Crow Archery club...they don't mind folks shooting down by SA. I've done it many times. The range goes upto 50 yards. There is also an indoor range if you become a member. As I've been told by the co-ops reporting to me that apartments are easy to come by. The best is to get a local paper.

Update- I accepted the offer and will be living in Hutch this summer. It sounds like they might have the housing thing worked out for me. It will take a little while to get everything sorted out and i know exactly what is happening. Thanks for everything.

I believe Hook Lake has a culvert a person can stand by and cast for fish too. On Marion, you could try that area along Hwy. 15. My buddy caught a 24" walleye one time doing that. Belle Lake and Marion have fishing piers. Speaking of Belle, there is a culvert on the northwest side of the lake that might be worth trying at night for walleyes when the season opens. Also, there's a large culvert under the road that connects Stella and Washington. Not sure how accessible it is and if you can park nearby, but that might be worth considering.

That's about as much as I'm aware of.

Minnie Belle also has a pier. I'm pretty sure if you put up a post or two that you would help pay for some gas or something you could find someone to go with. There are decent lakes north of town for about every species in the book.

      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?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.
