      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 .

I would have hunted in the dekes if I were you!! Or better yet, "KINDLY" move them out of the way. When more than one group has permission to hunt the same field it's very bad form to leave the dekes out while you are gone. That's a good way to get your dekes "KINDLY" stacked in fresh Cow sh--!

Don't want to cause problems or anything, I just think that the person that is more commited to that field should have more rights to hunt it. Giving that we where there this morning and hunted and so on. me and my friend have had crappy luck getting permission to hunt fields, and now we have permission from the owner to hunt a couple of his fields it just kind sucks to see someone leave dekes out, instead of first come first serve.

we're in the same boat with one of our spots...the guys leave their decoys out all year in the same field because they think this serves as a reservation of sorts--I think it is bush league because half the days they don't show up and it just wastes a field we would have had permission to hunt and confuses the geese in the area. Some people man...

Delta, didn't mean to cause any problems. We left the decoys out last night because it was raining and it didn't make sense to us to pick up all our decoys as we were also going to hunt that field this morning as we thought we were the only ones hunting there. I graduated with Mohr's kid and have had permission sense mid June to hunt any one of there fields. This is were the confusion and miss-communication comes in. Mohr gave me permission and then never mentioned it to his dad, and also said that sense we were going to hunt there he wasn't going to let anyone else in. Well he didn't tell his dad until just about a week ago. In that time his dad gave you guys permission to hunt there I'm guessing. So as far as we knew we were the only ones hunting the feilds. confused.gif. I will take part the blame as I should have made sure that his dad knew. Again by no means did we plan on causing any trouble and apolgize that we did!!

Delta we did not know that anyone else was going to be out there, when we talked to you last night we thought you were just cruising through, if you would have mentioned something we could have worked something out. After Mohr's son told us that someone else had permission he also said that they would only be hunting on opener and then during the week. Big misunderstanding I guess.

To everyone who said they would sit in there decoys or move them into some cow s*it..............grow up

riverrat56, If you are not the only person that has permission to hunt then it is a horrible thing to do to leave your decoys out. I would take that as a sign that you think you have more rights to the area than other people that also have permission to hunt there. I have seen this many times, and it often leads to the farmer not letting anyone hunt there becuase of guys that pull that kind of crap.

Now, if you honestly thought you were the only people with permission (which sounds like your case, sorry) than that's a different story. You thought you were okay leaving them out, and sounds like you guys worked it out which is good to see!

I guess I was a little harsh because the private land I hunt I know the farmers real well, and this has happened to me and the farmer has told me to go ahead and hunt in the decoys, or toss them along the fence line, or do whatever you want with them, they shouldn't have been left out there. And if they show up and have a problem, send them over to the barn, or up to the house and I'll take care of it.

Anyway, I didn't mean to come off as a bad azz, this topic just hit me as I have delt with this in the past. Usually if not worked out between the hunters it ends with a lost field for all. Farmers don't have the time in the fall for anything like that.

I'm not entirly sure as to what we doing yet, if there is geese there we going to hunting it, or if a couple of the field that we have permission for are holding geese, I'll have to way out our options. Is it going to be just the two of you? Because the way the geese have been standing in the fields, the more hunters the better. The geese are just standing in a line aggressivly feeding. I know that Catmaster said he had some GHG fullbodies, well I have 6 GHG and 4 Final approach Lookers. I'm not going to use any of my shells. Just let me know, as to what you wanna do, if you just want to join us or do your own thing?

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!  
    • Wanderer
      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and 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. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and 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.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!
