      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 .

Cabin breakins and thefts!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

bieganekbaitco

This past week, three cabins where broke into on Arbor Ridge on the east shore of Upper Red lake. The only things that where taken where a bunch of tackle boxs full of tackle. If anyone out there knows of anyone who came into a bunch of tackle or knows anything about this, there is a reward and they will remain anonimous. This past June, there where similar thefts in boats at Westwinds Harbor, no electronics, no rods, just tackle. These low-life scum must be caught!!!!!!! I can be reached by my Personal email!!!!!!!! Thank you

Thanks for the heads up guys. I got the security system on... but the dang thing has went off several times this summer for no apparent reason. confused.gif

At least this time if it goes off I MAY have a reason to investigate.

I keep joking with the police that it's the bear that wanders threw there. I have tracks all over around the cabin. My cleaning lady won't clean the place after dark and when she does go up she parks as close to the door as she can.

But seriously... you can follow it's tracks from 2-3 cabins down along the beach and then he comes up and snoops around the cabin, goes next door and does the same and then we loose the tracks in the sand by the lake again. LOL

There no little paw prints either.

We put up a 8' stainless steel counter top and sink for fish cleaning at. The drain goes down into a low spot. I am waiting for the day I go up there and "Ms. Bear" has taken it upon herself to remove my drain pipe. LOL

I was up to my hunting cabin last week and two sets of moose antlers, several large deer antlers, and a nice two- man cross cut saw, all on the outside of the cabin were gone. Its my own fault but have had the cabin for 10 years and no trouble till this time. Guess nothing is safe anymore. Never called the cops dont know how it would be able to be traced. Just read your posts and thought I would let everyone know it can happen at anytime. If anyone hears of anything like that please let me know. thanks

This is just odd... missing tackle and antlers?

What kind of goof are we dealing with. I guess someone who desperatly WANTS to look like a sportsman!!!

Can't go out and get their own tackle and shoot their own animals. blush.gif

I was like you Tucker, I had faith in my fellow man, not anymore though!!! Its very disheartning, stealing my baby daughters coin back with a whopping $5 bucks in change, the sheriffs better find them before I do. I believe my stuff is within 5 miles of Waskish. If anyone is having the same problem, call the Beltrami Cty Sheriffs office, no matter how much you lost, there might be a connection to other crimes in the area.

I have over heard some stuff about the cabin break ins, Did this happen three to four weeks ago. Do they have any names at all?

I don't know anything about the break-in's, but am sorry to hear about it. I had about $700 in tackle stole a few years ago and man did it suck. Luckily I was able to get it back.

I just had some students ask around the school and I found out who did it and went from there. I'm not saying it's a youngster (teen) who is stealing all the stuff around there, but it's possible? And the cops...well, I would still be missing my tackle if I waited for them to find it! I took it into my own hands and had my stuff back in a couple days.

I also believe it's a "local" individual doing it, I hope you guys catch who ever is doing this. Good luck.

Talk to you later.

It almost seems like someone is selling this stuff. I know deer antlers are worth some money, and the tackle is also worth money if it is old stuff. I dont like blaming kids, I know some "adults" that are pretty (Contact Us Please) dumb. I cant say when it happened, not there all the time although the neighbors do what they can to watch the place. What sucks now is the stuff that a person leaves in the cabin that is worth anything is now being takin home everytime we leave.

Meadow Creek, these breakins happened sometime the last week in September, I personally think it happened friday night the 29th, (Homecoming in Kelliher), just my hunch though.

I have a marine business on Kabetogama - north of you guys but not immune to thieves although it's rare that something gets stolen up here. My business was ripped off the night of 9/14. Lost a '93 25hp Evinrude off a customers boat that was sitting outside. My mistake to leave it out. Then I opened the storage shed. The guy (1 guy, one set of 11.5" footprints) crawled under the main door. Took a customers 15hp Johnson kicker, a GPS and tackle. Went thru 10-15 boats. Left cheaper electronics and never touched a Minn Kota or kicker motor that was locked down.

The same night gas was siphoned from a customers vehicle at a resort and 3 high-end GPS, rods, reels and tackle were stolen from another resort. We assume they are all the same person looking for quick sale items.

Our Sheriff has to come from Virginia, 80 miles south. We have little protection here but this has put the locals on edge and things will be dealt w/ on our own, no doubt. I am installing 6 security cameras, motion lights, etc. Thought about putting some amps to the metal shed but am sure the burglar would sue me if they were injured!

Good luck to you all in securing your properties and possessions. No one wants this type of thing to go on - may have to set up the ol' S & W security system!

I have 2 words for those who are experiencing cabin break ins... "deer camera".

Put an infra-red deer camera up on the outside of your cabin in a strategic location... snap a couple pics of the low-life scum and turn them into the police. I bet that'd soon end the rash of break-ins! Buy a good digital one so you can hold lot's of pics and you won't need to worry about a flash. Most decent cameras now have less than a 1/2 second wake-up and do not burn through batteries like the old 35mm ones did. Cheap and effective and you get to use the camera at your deer stand later in the fall! heheheh

Good Luck!

Ken

LABS & all,

We have considered the game camera and are looking into it.

There was a theft from a boat 2 nights ago - an older depth finder and the boat was sitting in the guy's yard next to his cabin. Now we know it's someone that's still around - not some disgruntled dock help or someone from out of the area. This is local. And they are grasping for whatever is laying around out there. Drug money?? Regardless, they are making mistakes now and it's just a matter of time before we catch them. There are only about 50 residents on the lake from October to April and the neighborhood "watch" is on the look-out!

Yes, I would love to hang 'em high! It's one thing to steal MY possessions but this was all customer stuff....we have a responsibility to our customers and I don't need them losing faith in me. I have contacted them all and they have been MORE than understanding, which is great.

If anyone happens to see or hear of someone selling tackle, rods and reels, GPS depth finders and the occasional small outboard, I would appreciate a post either here or on the Kabetogama forum.

NEW SECURITY SIGN READS "THIEVES WILL BE SHOT. SURVIVORS WILL BE SHOT AGAIN."

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      Looks like you got one woodcock and a snipe but I could be wrong but great job shooting.

      Saw over 10 birds on opener....all before legal shooting hour....Only 1 after before the rain started.

      i went out for a couple hours yesterday looking for grouse.  The buddy i was with never has been hunting for grouse or woodcock.  We only saw 1 grouse with no chance for a shot but got both woodcock that flushed.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has produced six new, state-of-the-art maps that will make it easier and safer for people to explore, hunt, and recreate in state forests.   “The DNR has updated six state forests with 53 more to go,” said Forrest Boe, director of the DNR Forestry Division. “This five-year effort will include updating maps for all of Minnesota’s state forests.” State forest users now have two maps options. A geoPDF map will allow users to download a map onto a mobile device using a variety of map apps and then track their location as a blue dot on the screen. The new user-friendly, paper maps highlight the unique recreation features of each forest and include pop-out maps for popular campgrounds and day-use areas. “The little blue dot that appears on the map on my phone goes with me whether I’m on or off-trail,” said Laura Duffey, DNR state forest map project coordinator. “This feature lets people know exactly where they are in a state forest—no more getting lost.” The maps are also more detailed than previous versions and highlight the endless recreation opportunities in state forests, such as hiking, mountain biking, birding, berry picking, cross-country skiing, hunting, and horseback, ATV and snowmobile riding. Many state forests also offer campgrounds, fishing piers, boat launches, swimming beaches, and picnic areas. The six new maps are available in time for fall hunting and cover more than 240,000 acres of state forest land and thousands of miles of trails. New geoPDF and paper maps are now available for: Paul Bunyan State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Badoura State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Croix State Forest in Pine County Huntersville State Forest in Cass, Hubbard and Wadena counties Lyons State Forest in Wadena County. Chengwatana State Forest in Pine and Chisago counties The Paul Bunyan and Badoura state forests are popular spots for hunters. Combined, they contain two campgrounds and day-use areas, four off-highway vehicle trails, five wildlife management areas (WMA), two ruffed grouse management areas, and four state game refuges. They also have hiking, biking, snowmobiling and skiing trails. The Huntersville and Lyons state forests are popular with hunters. Each state forest contains four WMAs and several miles of trails and roads for off-highway vehicles. Additionally, the Huntersville State Forest offers two campgrounds, a horse campground, and 24 miles of designated horse trails. The St. Croix State Forest offers a variety of year-round recreation opportunities. It has 20 miles of horseback trails and a horse campground with 56 campsites. In the winter snowmobilers can enjoy 42 miles of trails while in the summer mountain bikers can cruise 25 miles of trails. The Boulder Campground and day-use area has 22 secluded campsites and access to Rock Lake for swimming, fishing and boating. The Chengwatana State Forest contains the Snake River Campground and several miles of off-highway motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle trails. Three state water trails run through the forest: Kettle River, Snake River, and St. Croix River. Snowmobliers also use the Matthew Lourey State Trail, which runs through the forest. The new maps also shows locations of National Park Service campsites along the St. Croix River.Digital, geoPDF maps are available on the state forest’s webpage at www.mndnr.gov/stateforests. People can get a free paper map at a local DNR office or the DNR Info Center by sending an email to info.dnr@state.mn.us or calling 888-646-6367, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
