      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 .

deepportage01

Six months ago a tree that was on the nabors property fell on my trolling motor[value $600] When I talked to them about this they told me they had a $2,500 ded and would see if they could claim it, I left it alone thinking they would do the rite thing a pay for it,3 weeks ago I brought it up for the 2nd time and was told that the "well was dry" implying they where broke or they just don't want to pay, They are my cabin nabors and I don't want to start a war but what should I do they are pasive on the whole thing, The funny part about this hole thing is she is my insurance agent and a freind. Help please

I suppose the other option's would be to be more firm about collecting and if they dont want to make it right a small claim's would be the other thing.

I had a neighbors tree fall on my privacy fence between our yards last year(my fence)....she never even contacted me about it. Our insurance agent said it wasn't a rotten tree so she wasn't at fault for it falling, hence my insurance covered some of the repair. Was out about the same $$$$ as you are going to be...Plus I got to clean up a huge tree in my yard too...I would say call Your insurance agent, but that probably won't work either...

What is the trolling motor worth? Is it worth the hassle? I agree that she is not be forthright and I question her ethics as an insurance agaent.

I wonder what would happen if you filed a claim against your own homeowner's insurance. Don't know for sure but perhaps your insurance company would then pursue her for recovery.

No matter what happens I think I would be insurance shopping.

Sorry. I guess if it were me, and I felt the way that you evidently do, I would have just taken it in stride and moved on without bringing it up on here. I was just stating my opinion. It is a tough spot to be in. My neighbors blue spruce is growing into my yard so far that it is almost touching my house. I just keep my mouth shut and mow around it. I have no other problems with the neighbor. wink.gif

As jerkin'em mentioned, unless your neighbor was negligent in not pruning the dead branches of the tree, or if the tree it self was dead and a normal prudent person would recognize it posed a hazard, there is likely no liability on the neighbor's part.

Folks often don't understand this one - but think of it this way - if a tornado hit and picked up your healthy tree and deposited it two miles away on someone's house, would you be responsible? Most people, given this example would say no. Same goes for the tree next door - if the owner didn't have knowledge it posed a hazard, they shouldn't be held liable for the wind storm that blows it next door or across the county.

May not be worth turning it into your carrier depending on your deductible, etc. Talk w/your agent.

Sorry, probably not what you wanted to hear frown.gif

Ya know... Regardless of whose fault it was (or wasn't), the neighbor should have done whats right and paid for damage caused by their tree. Its like a lot of things in this world, people just want to avoid any responsibility for...

I have a similar situation right now. I have a 75 ft. black spruce tree that although it looks pretty healthy it has a good lightning scar at the top. It poses no danger to my house garage, etc. But because of the location my new neighbor built his house, it could really do a lot of damage if it fell his direction. Although I hate to cut such a beautiful tree, I would sure feel horrible if this tree came down and took out half his house. We talked about it and just agreed to split the cost of taking it down because that was the right thing to do.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
