      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

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?

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 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."

      How's the bite been recently.   Coming up for the weekend and curious at what depths to start at. 
    • RuddyDuck
      On the lighter side, I am 'SpoonBillSlayer' on that other site. For whatever reason years ago when I joined these sites I used two different userids. Both odd duck names that fit an odd duck! I just wanted to get the new updates out on this mess, it just seems like the only people being notified of it are those in  lake assoc's.  We'll see what happens.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      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?
