      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 .

Fish'n guy

It just makes me sick to know that someone would do something like that. those kind of people need to be locked up forever, because they are worthless to the rest of the world. Sorry if I sound harsh, but that lady spent her own money on that fish house to make someones day better, and those f&*&%#$ had to ruin all the fun for those people. Tim I know that you work for law enforcement, and I hope that you are able to catch those scumballs!!!!!!!!

After reading the article in the Waseca paper, I was pissed. I know of several ELM homes in the area and some of the people who help them operate. I know whoever took the fish house probably isn't smart enough to run a computer and apparently doesn't give a rip about those whose lives he messed with. What if they had a loved one who was living at one of the locations? What the person or persons did who took it stinks. I hope someone reads the fish house description, fingers them and they get caught somehow. Also hope the judge throws the book at them.

Ranger--being that your a police officer by occupation, i have a question, I recendly put insurance on my wheel house ( homemade ) the insurance person wants a idenifaction tag or something like it put somewhere on or in the house so if it's stoled it would be on record for the insurance, where would you suggest to put it? figure i'd engrave it some where on steel or hide a tag somewhere inside-- whats your suggestions, Thank you, you police officer's can't get enought credit!

ELM homes were set up as group homes for mentally handicapped folks to live. Those I know of are in the country. Usually there are some animals for them to care for such as llamas and sheep. The lady who owned the fish house that was stolen frequently took residents of the homes out ice fishing & for pizza parties overnight on the ice.

Haven't heard that anyone has been apprehended in the theft yet.

I would get an engraver from a local pd or sheriff if you dont have one. I would take photos of the house and also of the id number and its location on the house. I would place several on the house incase they find one that one may be left. I would place it out of the way so no easy to be found. I would say outside on the underside of the tongue some place. I would also say inside some place, under a storage cabinet, in a cabinet, under the heater or on the frame inside a hole would all be good places to check. Good Luck

I read in the Waseca paper last nite that the lady who had her fish house stolen has a replacement. Thanks to insurance and donations to help cover her deductible, she was able to replace it and get another one. Not as large as the original, but at least she can still take the ELM home residents out for fishing/pizza parties in a shelter again. A little good news for a change... cool.gif

      Now is the time to talk to kids about the dangers of thin ice. As temperatures continue to dip below freezing, ice is forming on many lakes, ponds and rivers. But conditions vary across the state.  Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Hannah Mishler has already responded to multiple ice rescue calls. “Ice, especially snow covered ice, is extremely deceptive. You can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” Mishler said. With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward the newly formed ice for entertainment. “Teach your children that ice is never 100 percent safe,” cautions Mishler. “If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” While adults and children are recreating outdoors, they should always take precautions around any body of water during the cold water season. Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator, advises in addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). When a child is near the ice, an adult should be near the child. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It’s been interesting in Central MN so far.  There are plenty of lakes that have very walkable ice and ice that could hold ATV traffic but also several that stayed mostly to partly open for longer than expected.  Several lakes have both rideable ice and open water as of last weekend. There are only a couple lakes that I’ve been tracking that I would commit to an ATV ride on right now, especially with the new snow cover.  We lost the ability to see what “generation” of ice you were on this week.  On the plus side, we’ve had good ice making conditions all week. Short story: There are lakes that are ready to fish but don’t assume they all are.  Phone ahead to a resort or bait shop to find out about particular lakes if you don’t get the info here.  Buy your bait at the shop that gives you your key info. Be extra cautious this weekend until you’ve proven the ice you want to fish.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck
