      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 .

I was reading my 2002 hunting regulations yesterday and there is a great quote from Aldo Leopold at the beginning of the Ethics section. Page 15

"Bass fishermen watch Monday night football, drink beer, drive pickup trucks and prefer noisy women with big breasts.
Trout fishermen watch MacNeil-Lehrer, drink white wine, drive foreign cars with passenger-side air bags and hardly think about women at all.
This last characteristic may have something to do with the fact that trout fishermen spend most of the time immersed up to the thighs in ice-cold water."
- New Yorker Magazine, June 13, 1994

Quoting the late Robert Traver, outdoor writer from Michigan:

"It's not that fishing is so terribly important. Rather, it's that everything else in life is as equally unimportant, and a lot less fun."

Traver also has some terrific words to say about the places where folks fish -- worth being there. You can find him in just about any collection of famous quotes.

(He's the author of Anatomy of a Murder, the book made into one of the best movies ever filmed. Filmed on location in Marquette Mich and the UP.)

File under general inspiration:

Thoreau's, "In wilderness is the preservation of the world"(?)

Perhaps, Frost's, "Two roads diverged in the woods. I choose the one less traveled and that has made all the difference".(??)

Chief Seattle's, "Man did not weave the web of life - he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself."

Sounds like a fun project good luck!

Don't quote me on these...

Give a man a fish - he'll eat for a day.
Teach a man to fish - he'll eat for a lifetime...then buy more rods/reels, more tackle, a boat, a new truck...

"I sit in happy meditation on my rock, pondering, while my line dries again, upon the ways of trout and men. How like fish we are; ready, nay eager to seize upon whatever new thing some wind of circumstance shakes down upon the river of time! And how we rue our haste finding the gilded morsel to contain a hook."

Aldo Leopold, "A Sand County Almanac"

Here's a couple of Quotes

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a
shortage of fishing poles.
Doug Larson

Very little is known of the Canadian country since it is rarely visited by anyone but the Queen and illiterate sport fishermen.
P. J. O'Rourke

There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an
idiot.
Steven Wright

Fishing is a delusion entirely surrounded by liars in old clothes.

Hmm.. I have a perpetual calander full of these: I'll add a few of my favoirtes to here:

"you cannot bring a hook into a fish's mouth unless there is food on it that pleases him." -Juliana Berners

"It is not a fish until it is on the bank" -Irish Proverb

"Give me mine angle; we'll to the river there,
My music playing far off, I will betray Tawny-finn'd fishes; my bended hook shall pierce Their slimy jaws" -William Shakespeare. Anthony and Cleopatra (Hey.. I never knew Shakespeare was an Angler... perhaps that's why he got a line of fishing equipment named after him? wink.gif )

Just a couple of old ones-

A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.

It is better to go fishing and think about God than it is to go to Church and think about fishing.

I'm finding some gems here...thanks.
whatever doesn't make the walls, will find itself on a magnet or t-shirt!....

Fishing seems to have the most bits of wisdom...anything more toward hunting, or outdoors in general?

I have a bunch of them for you.

No theory will adequately server to explain why a person goes fishing. Christopher Lehmann-Huapt

There will be no joy on long winter nights making reinventory of the tackle unless there be behind it the indelible recollection of having caught a few big ones,and the anticipation of bigger ones to come. Herbert Hoover

All good fisherman stay young until they die,for fishing is the only dream of youth that doth not grow stale with age. J.W.Muller

All Amercans believe that they are born fishermen.For a man to admit a distaste for fishing would be like denouncing mother-love and hating moonlight. John Steinbeck

You can't catch fish on a dry line. Anonymous

The fishing is always good.Its the catching that can prove difficult. Steve Walli

All American boys spit on the bait. Herbert Hoover

Everyone is born with the same amount of fishing savvy;none.It must be learned. Gary Soucie

Yup all of these come off the top of my head.Ok I got themn off an old fishing calendar I had. smile.gif

      Is it always impossible to get a hold of Jeff?? It took me like 8 calls to get a hold of him, brought my boat down after I got a hold of him. I told him I was hoping to use it this weekend for one last trip...I've called him multiple times for an update and he never answers... Seems odd for a business.

      You know it’s a good day when you’re thumb looks like that from lipping the fish! What sizes are you getting right now, Rick?

      Recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) is anticipated to open on several Schedule I Lakes in the Grand Rapids fisheries work area beginning in late October, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule II Lakes, will open Nov. 3. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Anticipated opening dates are as follows: Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec.3, for Deer (near Deer River), and Turtle (3.5 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Side and South Sturgeon (1.75 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Big Balsam and Nashwauk (1.75 inch mesh). Schedule II Lakes Lakes open to whitefish and cisco sport netting Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10: Bass (north basin). Ball Club. Bowstring*. Little Bowstring. Cut Foot Sioux*. Deer (near Effie). Grave. Jessie. Maple. Pokegama. Round (near Squaw Lake –1.75 inch mesh). Rush Island. Sand (near Max)*. Swan.  (1.75 inch mesh) Twin Lakes (near Marble). Winnibigoshish* and Little Winnibigoshish* (1.75 inch mesh). *Bowstring, Cut Foot Sioux, Sand, Winnibigoshish and Little Winnibigoshish are designated infested waters because of the presence of faucet snails or zebra mussels. Nets and equipment used in infested waters may not be used in any other waterbody unless they have been dried for ten days or frozen for two days. Fishing regulations require that: Netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. A person may use only one gill net, not exceeding 100 feet in length and 3 feet in width. One end of net must have a pole, stake, or buoy projecting at least two feet above the surface of the water or ice. Nets must have an identification tag attached near the first float of the end that is projecting from the surface of the water or ice. Identification tags must be a minimum of 2 ½ inches by 5/8 inch permanently bearing the name and address of the owner. Identification tags for marking nets are provided by the owner. Nets may not be set after sunset or raised before sunrise. All gill nets must be set and lifted by the licensee only. Anyone assisting in the taking of whitefish or ciscoes must have proper licensing. Nets must be tended at least once every 24 hours and all gamefish and non-target species must be immediately released from the net. A net may not be set in any water deeper than six feet. A net may not be set within 50 feet of another net. Minimum gill net mesh size shall be no less than 1-3/4 or 3-1/2 inch stretch measure depending on the lake (see full list of lake and size regulations online). Nets used in designated infested waters must be dried for a minimum of 10 days or frozen for 2 days before using in a different water body. Nets should be dried for 10 days or frozen for 2 before moving from any lake to another. Nets used in spiny water flea and/or zebra mussel infested waters should be not used in any other waterbody Nets should be transported in sealed container. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be bought or sold. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be used as bait. Within the Leech Lake Reservation boundaries, the possession limit for whitefish taken by sport gill-netting is 25, and the possession limit for ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting is 50. Net placement should not inhibit use of the lake by other boaters. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Grand Rapids area office at 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or call 218-328-8836. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It seemed cheap to me for all the functionality.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.  
    • fishingdad
            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.
