      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're here to fish, not to have fun!"

Said by my father to my brother and I when we had a couple too many beers on a fishing trip up north a few years back. He's very serious about his fishing...

We were ice fishing and had a very large musky hanging out right under our holes, and while we were picking up to move, My friend and I were talking about eating one and I asked what it tasted like, and Ryan's quote, with a dead serious, strait face, "It taste alot like eagle." I laughed so hard I almost fell off my chair.

This is now a running joke when we talk about eating anything new.

Now thats funny!

Quote:

I've actually said that myself when frusterated with a screw-ball in the boat.

Quote:

Sit down! You act like a sail!


My Uncle to my Dad when Uncle Bob was Captain of the boat.

Quote:

Just let go of it, it'll float


Glug..glug...glug...Bubbles came up.

When my brother dropped the brand new, rubberized landing net over the side of the boat:

Quote:

Dude, you gotta set up your house NOW!!!


1/4 of the walk to the spot at first ice when it was -14 degrees, when the guts started to gurgle and stomp...

Quote:

Are ya' still mad I outifhsed ya'?


My brother, after the last open water trip to URL, where he caught 1 more Crappie then myself.

I remember fishing with my Dad as a kid, and when the bite was slow, he'd always say something like...

"Well boys, let's move, we're not getting rich here" or

"Geez, I wonder what Al Linder would do".

I have this line I often say when we are looking at a newly caught fish, "That fish is thinking, I feel awful, must be something I ate." Well, on a trip on Lake Michigan I say this about a salmon that was in the net. My fishing buddy goes, "Quit saying that. I`ve heard it a million times!" The guide goes, "If you`ve said that a million times you must catch a ton of fish." I was just dying. I thought my buddy was gonna jump in the lake and swim 4 miles back to shore. I don`t even have to bring that story up, my buddy does.

Well, guess you had to be there, but my dad, in a rather philosophic mood during a really long, quiet lull in the fishing, looks at me and says, "Why do they call them outboard motors? They're really engines, you know...".

Now I know where the "Deep Thoughts" deal from Saturday Night Live came from... wink.gif

This is not a fishing quote. I was reading the gas prices discussion and this struck me as funny. So I had to transfer it.

Several yrs ago, my buddy and me parked over some Rockies and caught 189 in 1 1/2 hrs without moving the anchor - that is more than one per minute for a full 90 minutes - "like shooting fish in a barrel". Anyways, I'm gettin' tired so I take a break and my buddy says, "what's the matter - bored?". So then to talk me back into fishing, he says "we may never catch fish like this again in our lives - keep fishing".

Ever since, at that same spot we fish every yr and limit-out on Rockies, and although not as fast and furious as the first year, we do run into some schools that wear me out and I will still take a break - but now I always remind him how wrong he was by saying "we may never catch fish like this again".

While fishing in 90 degree heat in 6 feet of water next to a steep break...my moronic (or is that brilliant?) friend drops his leech right under the boat while I am dutifully, & correctly, casting over the ledge. He immediately hooks a 15" walleye & while bringing it up says,

Him: "Hey, I've never caught a walleye, can I lip it like a bass?"

Me: "No. They have teeth."

Him: "Huh, they don't look so bad."

About five seconds later he had blood running down his hand & all the way to his elbow. To his credit, I've never seen him lip another walleye. grin.gif

After coming in from fishing one day, we started to grill steaks and one of the guys doesn't like his seared on the outside, so after a few cold ones (okay, quite a few) he takes the lid of the grill off, takes the grate off, takes the coals and starts dumping them in and says "Here, let's simmer these boys down a bit". What??? Hmmm....adds new meaning to putting another log on the fire. confused.giftongue.gif

On a Lac Seuel (sp?) trip with my dad and 4 other guys, one night after having again, cold ones, the one guy who has dry cracked hands puts some lotion on his hands and rubs it in. He takes the tube holds it out to my dad asking "Do you want some?" My dad, not really thinking before speaking says "No thanks....I'm trying to quit". We all tore up laughing at him and he finally figured out why. blush.gifgrin.gif

My dad always said "Hand me one of those pork chops (a cold one) it's time for breakfast!"

One of my best hunting partners always says:

"If we had some ham we could have some ham and eggs if we had some eggs."

Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      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.
