      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 .

We (minnesota electrical students assossiation) and the St. Cloud Tech College are hosting an icefishing contest with all proceeds going to the local food shelf. The contest is Monday january 17th at the public access, starting at noon and ending at 3pm with prizes awarded at 3:15. Prizes will be awarded in order for the biggest fish weighed in and scattered through out the place list, the biggest przes will not nessessarily be for the top places, with extra prizes drawn by ticket number for spots not filled by fish. Some of the wonderful prizes include a clam fish house, vexlar, several $100 dollar gift certificates, $50 gift certificates, $25 gift certificates, oil changes, jackets and other clothing, along with many other prizes and some yet to be submitted. Some sponcers include....Many great sponcers. which I don't think I can list for advertising reasons of this website, which is understandable. There will be a maximum of 149 tickets sold so your odds of winning something are pretty good. Food, beverages(non-alcoholic)will be for sale. Restrooms, and parking will be provided. The cost is $10 in advance and $12 at the contest. It is really more of a donation, because the money is going to the food shelf. So if you are interested meet us at the access for a day of fishing and fun, plus the just down right good feeling of knowing your entry fee is going to a good cause. Thanks for reading this and hope to see you there, it might also be a good chance to meet fellow FMers.

Are all of the holes already pre-drilled or is it just going to be set up on a certain part of the lake and you can go anywhere in that part, or the entire lake? Sounds like a good time just dont know if I will be in town!

You say there are only 149 tickets being sold, does that mean there will only be a maximum of 149 anglers or is that only for the raffle. and are the holes over the whole lake or just in the public access area?? hopefully see you guys out there!!!

yes there will be only 149 tickets available to contestants, there is not a raffle unless we do not fill all of the prizes with fish. Some people are buying 2 tickets for 2 holes, so it will even be less then the maximum of 149 anglers.Then the remaining prizes will be drawn off by ticket number. The contest is 1 hole per ticket, and 1 prize per ticket if you catch fish, or for the drawing. The holes will be drilled in a designated area and people can only fish within that designated area. Also I do not believe fish houses are going to be allowed for the honesty factor involved, so dress warm. I'll be out there from 8am till 4pm braving the elements. Hope to see a few of you out there.

I really would of liked to be there, but why on a Monday?

Don't people have to work these days?

Hopefully next year it will be on the weekend.

With that said, any big fish caught?

We had a great turnout for the condidtions, and raised over $1000+ dollars for the food shelf. 35 fish took prizes and 5 were drawn off that didn't get claimed by fish caught. Several people caught multiple fish, but you could only register your biggest fish per ticket bought. The reason it was on a monday is because it was going to be a school event, but we ended getting a private insurance pollicy (after trying to deal with the school pollitics)so we could open it to the public, but this was after the day was already set so next year it will be on a weekend. I would like to say thanks to all of you that made it out and thanks to the staff at fishing minnesota for letting us post the event. Thanks only-eyes

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.
