      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 .

Also looking for a male

Recommended Posts

Bryce

Now that everyone's undies are good and bunched up and this is getting some looks, thought I'd also look for male. I have a young chocolate that we will start breeding in 3 years or so if all goes well with her training and health checks. Candidate must be chocolate or strongly chocolate factored black, hips and eyes must be certified (prefer hips to be excellent), dog must have attained either QAA or MH title(or have intentions of attempting this feat since this dog may also be a pup). There may be only a few people on this site that a have a dog or know someone that has a dog of this quality but looks like this is the time to post it up. Like I say, this is still several years in the future but if you can match the list above it will then be time to look at pedigrees and see if we can pair up a good breeding. Location is not a factor. Fully understand that female may have to travel by air to breed.

The Captains Kennels up near Virginia has a male that might meet your requirements, by the name of what else, Captain. We got a chocolate female pup, sired by him,from them last spring and are very happy with her. Just do a search for The Captains Kennels.

Hope this helps. Good luck in your search.

Just seeing what's out there Labs. You know I'll probably look at a couple dozen dogs before I make a final decision. Not expecting to find much here other than the big kennel studs that I already know about.

Larry, what are your intentions with the pup? Gonna play the dog games with her or a hunting pet? Keep us informed how she's doing if you go the games route. Always nice to know what these studs are throwing out for talent.

No bird hunting, I gave that up a few years ago, and also no games. We just decided that with this pup we would get a good quality bred puppy. The last pup we got from a backyard breeder and we learned that it is pay now or pay later. We went through surgery for OCD and some other expenses. This gal is just a pet and companion but came with all the guarantees. With her good background and the fine work of the breeder hopefully we will not have the same type of problems.

But I do know that her sire has thrown some pups that have been very sucessful in trials. Thanks for asking.

I have been sitting here taking in all these comments about"backyard breeders" and I'm at the point where I need to say something, good or bad here it is.

I believe the the term "backyard breeder" is a misnomer. The responsibility of what you, the buyer, ends up with lies entirely on your shoulders. Do some research, look at what both the stud & bitch have for health certificates. If both have ofa cert. hips and the eyes have the cerfs. then look at the pedigree. If the next 1-2 generations are good then there is NO difference where you buy the puppy from. If you buy a puppy from Mary Howley at candlewood kennels or from me this summer the chance is there, believe it or not that you might end up with a puppy that has bad hips or his eyes might have folds in them.

In the end you as a buyer are in control of what you can end up with. Buying a puppy is a crap shoot no matter how you look at it. I bought 4 puppies this summer, 2 sets of brothers from 2 different litters. In the end 1 puppy from each litter went back to the seller, one with folds and the other with a screwed up back leg. The pedigrees 4 generations back were clean but the chance is always there that something like this can happen.

In the end making sure that you have guarantees from the breeder is very important.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
