      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 .

Arial Photos?

You could try google earth. Some areas are good and some areas are only OK. It would be something to try and the price is right for it. You can download it from google.

Check your county website, and look around on their GIS if they have one. Often times you can look at all the properties within the county with aerial photos.

To answer your question:

I think most of the web sites use basically the same photos, and unfortunately, I haven't seen any newer ones either.

Not to steal your thread, but does anyone fly-over thier hunting spots and take thier own photos? I have thought about it...

a cool thing to check out is on the DNR site, you can look at air photos from the '30s and '50s. click on free maps on the home page and then on LandView

A while back I was looking for aerial photo's in the Cass Lake area. I found a website I liked. www.terraserver.com.

Wallmounter is right-on in finding newer photos.

Color orthophotos were flown for the southern half of Minnesota for the 2003 season, and for the northern half during the 2004 season. Some areas that were incomplete, or had errors were reflown in 2004-2005 I believe.

This is a major improvement over the previous orthos (black and white), and to have it served out for the state of MN, free through the LMIC site is nothing short of a major accomplishment. Furthermore, we're lucky in MN compared to many of the states surrounding us, and nationwide.

For newer photos than the FSA Color Orthophotos for 2003-2004, your availability will be slim at best, and dependent upon a county, local, or private entity's ability to purchase, then provide them free of charge. This is most likely for the 7-county metro, or other counties with rapidly developing suburbs. Several counties in the metro provide these on their own sites, via the county-main website.

Good luck, and let us know what you find!

I couldn't tell you the exact year (I think they have several options) but check out terraserver.com. You can locate by zip code or latitude and longitude. Hope this helps.

I bought some newer(2005) aerial photos last year from the USDA and their Aerial Photography Field Office (APFO). It was for Itasca county but it looks like on their website they had most of the other counties for 2005 as well. They have a list by state on their site with what is available.

You did have to pay for these but they were really good and provided lots of detail. Here is their website:APFO Home. They were the most up to date pics that I could find.

I was watching some pictures on Google Earth and they udpated them to last year, I believe the whole earth, since I even saw some pics of my parent's house in Italy that has the latest remodeling.

      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early
    • ZachD
      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.
    • PRO-V
      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.
    • fish_hunt_guy
      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago. 
    • tfin
      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks
