      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 .

Babe Got Busted

Recommended Posts

Wow, just reading in Outdoor news yesterday that the good ol CO Denny Lang, busted a local celeb, it said that Babe Winkelmen, his wife Kristeen, and producer are heading to court to battle the charges of using radio in aid of capturing wild game, officer lang had been tipped off that they were using radios, so he tuned in on a frequency and hears the conversation between a man and a women, he goes back the next morning to hear a man say I am going to go get them out of they're beds, a women replied, im in stand, loaded and ready, when lang checked them, they all had nadheld radios tuned into the same channel, the officer was listening too, babe then said he knows the law, and was only using them for safety purposes, he then later admitted to using them illegally, he said in outdoor news that there is gray area and that it needs to be cleared up. What does everyone else think, i think a law is a law is a law and if you break it regardless of your class, or position in public you are guilty. Maybe people think I am too strong, I understand we as humans all make mistakes but, I think you should still be held to them. Hope to hear every one elses thoughts.

I read that story too. I'm not sure how I feel about it one way or the other.

It is a high profile name to be sure, but I think the practice of coordinitaing drives it pretty common. It would be very easy to cross the line using radios in that fashion.

We have used those radios out elk hunting, and it sure is nice to call for help when you have an elk down.

I have never had much use for them hunting whitetails, however.

LOLOLOL......
I guess hes just as guilty of it as you or me if we were in the same situation. Personally I think we should be able to use radios when party hunting, just makes good sense. It would cut down on deer left in the woods because of no tag..If you dont want to use them then dont. The downside to the pro radio thing is it would make it alot easier to keep track of Mr Lange. My Two cents...Paul

I guess I personally would like to see hunters using them to an exctent. I know if there was a accident in the woods where I hunt it is one heck of a run to even get to a truck. (mean while your hunting buddy bleeds to death in the woods). It would also be nice for loading big game like Gissert mentioned. That is probably as far as I would take it though. A who am I kidding. It would be sweet but I think a bit to unfair to the deer. I like the challenge of hunting without the technology though to. I am up in the air.

Babe is a slob hunter anyway. He tried to hunt my fathers place a few years ago and wanted us to drive the whole property to him and his daughter. I'm all for kids hunting but this doesn't seem to be the best way to teach a young girl. Blazing away at running deer chased by you. Just my opinion. I think the radio thing is a judgement call and should be used in an emergency situation only. Not used in a "im in the stand start the drive to me" situation.

I beleive you are allowed to have a radio on, but it can be only used for safety purposes, it just cant be used in aid of shooting deer, i think if the deer is dead, you can radio a friends saying I got one, meet me at the SW corner etc.

Heres my point. yes it would be nice to use them but a law is a law and until it is changed or ammended we cant use them. I dont think anyone cares the name of who breaks laws as laws are not made only for us common folk. the law is clear and ol babe broke the law, now he should pay the fine and not be a boob about it just because he is known in the mainstream. another point is that babe of all people should know the laws for hunting and fishing and for him to say there is a gray area is nonsence if you ask me.

      East access..... only 3.5" - 4"  200 yards out.  .... don't know north acces as I saw enough to  stay off.
    • MrSchrute
      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!
    • walleyewalby
      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
      so went to go scope it out, 15 trucks on the northside, wheelers and houses out. Baxter is packed. last nights fresh snow is showing alot of active cracks too... i may wait a coujple days for blue and check out baxter instead.
    • Wicheesehead37
      Anyone know of the ice conditions in the oak narrows area?
    • blue gill hunter
      Has anyone heard of any ice reports on Big Marine?
    • dindunuffins
      I heard  6" or so around terrys..  id figure public access must be close to the same?
    • gimruis
      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
