      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 .

What would you do?

There's a guy who got divorced where his wife got the boat in the divorce settlement and she is now selling it. Just assuming the boat is affordable to you, would you buy the boat or not? Personally speaking, I wouldn't be able to bring myself to buying it. I could only imagine what I'd feel like in that position...wife taking my boat and selling it. I wouldn't give this lady the "pleasure" (and money for that matter) of selling the boat to me.

I should step back a minute though and say that if I knew the guy and we were hated rivals, then I'd buy the boat if I had the money and liked the boat. smirk.giftongue.gif

Judging from the amount of divorces lately, it wouldn't bother me a bit. If it was a friend of mine, maybe, depending on the cicumstances and causes of divorce.

I know of many GOOD deals that came out of divorces..... grin.gif

Been there. The guy might love to get his boat back. She might have gotten it in the settlement just to spite him. You know how attached we can sometimes get to our boats.

This can be a very touchy subject. Been there before. Funny how things like boats, guns, and hunting land become ours after a marrage. Things like jewlery, clothes and nice cars become theirs. I have been divorced for six years and remarried and the ex still thinks she has a say in things I do. Granted we had two children together and I pay a large sum in child support to her she just won't go away. My ordeal wasn't a boat but a 1967 Camero that I bought when I was 13 years old. Well in the divorce she walked with my car. Turned and sold it to what used to be a friend of mine for half of what it was worth. He had the car for two weeks and rolled it. Sometimes I think she is just out to get revenge. As for buying the boat have some feelings for your buddy. Just my two cents worth.

The boat is being sold anyway and someone is going to buy it. If it is a friend's, buy it and work out a way to get it back to him. If it is a stranger, buy it anyways because some other stranger will buy it if you don't, so take the deal if it is there.

I grew up in a family of divorced parents and understand the sensitivities of it all but logic says that no matter your individual stance the divorce is done and the boat is gone.

Divorces aren't always caused by the wife; buy the boat.

If I was in the market for a boat, and this is what I was looking for, and the price was right, I'd buy it. Unless it was owned by a friend of mine cuz that would be weird.

I'd tell her to sell it because you already bought another boat with the cash you had buried in the back yard. Then, the next time you pick up the kids...make sure you have your buddy's brand new Pro-V hooked up to your truck.

Very good Rost,I like that one.Only one problem with that is she may then play that agaisnt you with the kids.Some people sure like to put the kids in the middle and that can be a very bad deal.

It's a boat, a thing, it has no life, no emotion, nothing. It doesn't feel, doesn't have empathy, doesn't feel lonely because it's former owner isn't around. It's her boat now, not his, the assets were divided up so move on.

Now, if she doesn't know the market value of the boat you have an opportunity to purchase it for less than market value if you can convince her to sell.

Been there, done that. I would purchase it and take him out fishing in it. I'd let him know if he want's it he could buy it back but from my personal experiance, I'm guessing he wouldn't be able to afford a boat for a few years.

      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.
