      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 .

Parking Tickets on Hubb's Pt

Recommended Posts

unclejake

I assume you're talking about that point where the road runs out in the dead of winter? Where you turn off of 95 by that restaurant...I think it's clydes...go across the railroad tracks and it curves around and out onto the river?
I've always thought it was okay to drive out from there. I know there's no parking signs on the land part...but if you were parked on the ice...that doesn't seem right they give you a ticket. How much was it? And do you know if people will be able to drive out of there at all anymore, even when it's safe enough to drive across the river?
Sorry to hear about that news.

Yep, that's the spot. Only $23...but I'll have to drive 60-miles on a workday just to contest the ticket.

gill,

What did the cop put down for the reason of the ticket? I've parked there in the past and thank goodness the cop was on his coffee break. grin.gif

Gill,

I would say you have a case to fight that ticket.

Say how did you see big walleyes? Underwater camera?

Anyone else gotten a ticket for parking on/near Hubb’s point in south Bayport? My buddy and I both received one last Sunday and we were parked on the ICE! People have been using this “access” for years either to drive across the river or to get to their hotspots. This is not the first time I have encountered the police for parking near the point and was wondering if anyone had more info on the regulations/laws concerning Hubb’s point. I know, I know…I can just walk out from the park, but it’s the principle of the whole thing that has riled me. I drive down a public right of way (3rd St) and it leads right to the river. There are all kinds of private property and keep out signs, but it seems to me they can’t post private prop signs on a public roadway. If they really could keep people out, why not put up a gate. Maybe I’m totally off base, but I just had to vent. BTW, we did catch a few small walleyes (and saw plenty large fish) on small glow-spoons and Nils Masters in 19 to 24’ from 6 to 9AM.

Hi Gill
I found this http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/waters/watermgmt_section/pwpermits/waterlaws.html It may help you to contest your ticket. I would like to hear the outcome of this. Here is a some of what is said.
Minnesota case law has established that a public road abutting a body of water gives the public riparian rights to the water. Riparian rights exist whether or not the lake is navigable or public and regardless of who owns the bed. Riparians are entitled to exercise their rights over the entire surface of the lake. One riparian cannot keep others from using all of the lake. Where access to a "wetland" is available from a public road, Minnesota Statutes Section 103G.235 provides the following: "In order to protect the public health or safety, local units of government may establish by ordinance restrictions upon public access to any wetlands from city, county or township roads which abut wetlands." In all other cases (i.e., state or federal roads abutting "wetlands" or any public road abutting a "public water"), the public has the riparian right of access.

Basshunter,
Parking on private prop was the reason...

Turk,
Saw larger “fish” on the Vexilars (I cannot say they were walleyes). Often these giant blips turn out to be 4-5lb channel cats or even sturgeon when we catch them. But when they’re swimming around with the walleyes during primetime I’d like to believe a few of these giants are walleyes as well wink.gif

Maybe I am off base here but if you were parked on private property, why did the officer not issue you a citaion for tresspassing, seems kinda odd doesnt it????

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.
