      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 .

Just time! And a lot of it. But seriously now. Can the dog see or is it down in the boat and whining due to the lack of sight? Sometimes that can help. Also be careful that you are not keying the dog in to getting wound up. I mean if you are hunting with another person and you say," here they come, or down the pipe, or ready, or take 'em." The dog will key on it every time and get cranked up. Also if the only time you use your call is when you see ducks and are going to then shoot the dog keys on that as well.

I know it is hard but tiring them out is also good. And I know a 2yr old is hard to tire out too. Try working dummies and using the call as well. In the boat, on the water and in the yard. Also take the dog out in the boat and do not hunt. Just have them sit around and get used to watching and hopefully get bored with the whole thing.

Camo, guns, decoys and the cool Fall weather will get them going every time.

My yellow lab is 8yrs old now. She still does it in the boat. Not so much a whine more of a scream if she can't see anything. Best thing I can tell you is get a dog dock and let her sit out there. Thats the only way I can get her to shut up. She is a great duck dog but it really makes me angry when she does it. Make sure the dog can see!

Good luck!

Peanut Butter and a little piece of bread. Make sure it's the creamy kind that sticks to the roof of their mouth good. One piece can usually keep them occupied for a couple of minutes, or long enough for a conversation.

To this day I still don't know why my dog got so excited when my wife got the peanut butter jar out of the cupboard.

Must have been coincidence.

Anyway, RIP Little buddy, I miss ya everytime I throw that first deek and can't say, "no Tar no."

I wouldn't worry about "Keying" the dog into the fact that birds are coming, in fact, you definately want the dog to "Key" in on the fact that ducks are coming. Your dog should watch the sky when you call. After some time in the blind the dog will key in on everything you do. Weather you say here they come, get down, cut em, etc... If my dog is sitting looking at me and not watching the sky, all I have to do is reach over and grab my gun and he fixes on the sky. When I can fit it in I will tell my dog to "watch em" while ducks are working. Alot of people say mark while ducks are coming.

If you do not take care of this problem ASAP you will probably have to live with it for ever. My brother has a buddy that no one will hunt with anymore if he brings his dog because of this. This is his second dog that has done this, and he did nothing to stop the first dog and it did it it's whole life.

You could try not letting the dog retrieve when it whines. Maybe haulting the retrieve until the dog settles down. A spray bottle with water to the face when whinning. Is the dog collar conditioned? Maybe a quiet-nick. Remember, a dog needs to know what it's being corrected for before it can make the correction.

You could call a trainer and I'm sure they could help you out a lot more.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T

      Here are some of the toads we have been catching on the Rum River this summer.  The biggest has been 19 1/4 inches.

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
