      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 .

One time while walikng to stand for a morning hunt, previous pictures showed three different bear opening the crib. As I was trying to regain my bearings I came what at first I though was a huge deer stand an figured I had stumbled into the nieghboring property. As I approached the stand I soon realized that this was no stand but some sort of cottage in the middle of the woods. I caught a whif of wood smoke an imedeatly some partiers had recently finished having a kegger an the bonfire was still smoldering. It was quickly apparent that the smoke was coming from the chimminey.figuring that the passed out partiers were in no shape to Deal with a fire if coals should accidently ignite something combustable. It was soon going to be sunrise but I had make sure that all was safe. I didn't want the woods to hurn down. No answer came from with in so I quietly opend the door as to not startle anyone awake. In the center of the room there was a huge table an on the table were threehuge bowls of steaming hot porrage. Talk about weired, like I had read this somewhere. I quickky got out of there an foun d my stand about a half an hour later an ended up takei g the biggest bear of my life. A huge boar with a 22 inch skull an weighing over 450 lbs. Ive never been able to find that cottage again tho. All I can figure is who ever I habited that cottage must have been some kinda bear people.

fishing 101

3 years ago, I had my camera set on video. Caught the neighbor peeing all around under my deer tree stand. Then the next video is him pulling on the string I use to hoist my bow up with. The next video is him right in front of my camera and the camera starts shaking. He poured water in my camera to destroy it, but didn't take the SD card, so I caught him.

When I tried getting up in my stand, one of my tree steps was missing, the string was broke. When the game warden confronted him, he denied everything until the warden explained it is on video. He admitted to the peeing, but said he didn't break the string, or take a tree step, or ruin the camera. But the neighbor called and asked if he could replace the camera. I just said, we'll let the court system handle it.

The warden asked me to press charges because he has had several run in's with him over the years. He wanted to get him for theft, hunter harrasment, trespassing, and vandalism. Kind of disaapointed, all he got was a trespassing fine, and had to replace the camera because the county attorney didn't want to embarass him. [PoorWordUsage]??

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and side by sides yet.

      I'll be ok, as long as I got my daily HSO therapy!

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Looks like Big Bay is still open, so I don't think I'll be ice fishing Thanksgiving Day weekend.  I'm guessing the Big Bay will freeze this Sunday or Tuesday.  Lake should be walkable by December 2 when I plan to go up.

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.
