      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 .

Win or lose, I for one saw a good game. If you truely appreciate the game of baseball, you had to enjoy this game from a baseball fan point of view. From a Twins fan point of view, it could have been better. smirk.gif

You know its a bad season when all you can do is cheer against the team that knocked your team out of playoff contention.

Cheer against the Twins all you want Windy, maybe it will help you get over the painful season the White Sux just had.

Windy you may have your rebuttals, some long and some short but none are either well-written or constructive

No one is asking you to have the things 'dead on' because we all know that you are incapable of that. ... You have proven that time and again.

Anybody can get on and say things that are either encouraging or spiteful. However I don't want you to think that these message boards are the only positive means of communication out there. After all you 'live in the greatest city in the world' I would think you would have better things to do. I guess if it makes you feel better ,more power to you.

To bad the twins didnt win to today, instead of trolling on here you could have been trolling while fishing and had a post that was an actual contribution to the site.

I know I'll be watching my team tomorrow, where will yours be.

Its too bad they dont throw pitty parties for 3rd place teams. You and commanche jim could have gone and cried together.

The Twins didn't knock us our of playoff contention.......the A's knocked us out when they completed a sweep of us on Sept. 14, putting us 4 games back of the Twins.

I'm cheering for the team that knocked us out.

And Rundrave, didn't you constantly bash the White Sox last year and this year?

Windy, C'mon man... you know that stuff your spreading is just bad karma right?! I mean I expect C-Jim to do it, but I figured you'd came around to normalcy... tell me your just venting cuz your Sox were ousted and it still hurts and trying to inflict pain to Twins fans helps the healing process. As far as C-Jim goes... I'm sure he's also on a Detroit site so he can make these posts when they lose.

To be perfectly honest I think the Sox's knocked themselves out of the playoffs by playing only .448 ball over the last month, while the twins played .633 ball over the last month.

Call it what ever you want but your boys are at home and the Twins are still playing for the Championship. Nuff Said.

Like I said before buzz, there is something in the air around Chicago. It screws with your head. It makes pro baseball teams throw it down the toilet. It makes you proud to be Polish. It makes you go to other states to catch a fish. See, it's the air down there. We shouldn't jump on Windy and C-jim too badly. They have no control over their rants. It's in the air man.

Ok, we can jump all over em for being poor sports kinda like kindergarten girlies. What was I thinking? Give em heck.

Say what you want, but as Twins fans we should be a little upset that the organization didn't go out and get Thomas. Oakland got him for a steal at half a million dollars. I mean, so we got scared by his injuries, who cares? If he played half the season and had half as many RBIs and HRs he'd still be worth it. Or what if they signed him to a contract with conditionals...although him or his agent may be reluctant to sign, we could have at least offered it. I wasn't happy with that decision then and now it really puts the BIG HURT on us.

They didn't go get him for a reason. The dudes a head case. Sure he jacked two ding dongs today but that doesn't take away from the fact that he's a head case. That kind of poisen does not belong in the Twins clubhouse.

It was all about Frank Thomas in Chi-Town and soon it will be all about Frank Thomas in Oakland. He can't help it, it's in his nature as a completely selfish bast$$d.

You guys can sure dish it out (Sux, chokers, underacheivers), I would surely expect you to take the abuse from Windy and I.

And like I said in another post, I'm actually pulling for you guys and the Twins............but after today, it's not looking too good.

Commanche,

Thanks for watching my back, right back at ya! Great catch on the A's stuff. I have always been a huge Frank Thomas fan. I thought it was time for him to go and I still think the Thome trade will prove to be the right move but I still am a huge Hurt fan. Hands down, the best pure power hitter in his first 10 years and still not bad. Also, I have always chided YO-Han since Twinkie fans have deemed him the greatest pitcher of all time. My comments are on record and I am sure you can all pull them up. I have always thought he was no where near as good as Twink fans make him out to be. Just my opinion. So naturally, you should have expected a post from the ole "wind bag" when The Big Hurt rode YO-Han like a rented mule today on the way to an A's victory.

YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD....YES! Windy

Commanche,

Just asking but what do you think the comments would have been like last year on this thread if our beloved Pale Hose had stumbled and actually lost a game or two in the playoffs or actually got the "beat down" put on them. Do you think the Twinkie fans would have sat idly by and congratulated us on winning the division but not the whole enchilada??? Just a thought, we will never know how they would have reacted....YEA RIGHT! Windy

Jim,

We can't take it? Where have you been? You went from July 10th until Sept. 25th without a post to the baseball forum, completely missing the fun of the 2nd half free fall by your club. But now you want us to take it from you because of all the shots we gave you and Windy. If I am not mistaken Windy was the only one here to take those shots.

Oh, by the way, here are some examples of the shots Twins fans took at you guys during the playoffs last year.

Congrats. - from Willy

Congrats to Windy and Comancho. - Crappieflop1212

First off congrats go out to the sox and all their fans.- from rundrave

Congrats on the victory to the Sox - fishyguy

BIG ISLAND DUDE

I for one am a diehard twins fan and would never ever ever ever think of chearing for or congratulating any other team(except for the padres, and not when their playing the twins in the series..long story), especially the whitesox. I hated the fact that they won the whole thing last year and I am happy that it was clearly a fluke. Why would windy and jim or any other sux fan cheer for or congratulate the twins and there fans?? thats crazy, there sux fans.

Frank thomas killed us today, and Bonser better figure out a way to get him out tommorrow, I have faith that he will. If we can contain him we will run away with the next three games.

GO TWINS!

Fishy,

Believe me, I was hiding from you guys earlier in the year because I had a feeling of where the Sox would be in October. My feelings were correct.

Getting back to the bashing of the Sox......with some of the posts you found from last year.......what else could you guys have said? White Sox Suck? White Sox are cheaters? White Sox are chokers? We won the whole thing. You guys couldn't bash them anymore. You couldn't justify it anymore. So the tails went between the legs and you congratulated.............And that's exactly what I will do if the Twins can pull this off.

Windy,

If the Sox lost last year, we'd still be hearing about it.

I really hope we get back there next year, because I'm VERY jealous right now watching the playoffs.

Why don't you stop into The Point on Sunday. $25 buffet starting a half hour before the game and ends when the game ends......includes domestic bottles, drafts, and well drinks...........plus the food. This week: 1st half will have wings, nachos, chili (I think), and the 2nd half will have ribs, our famous mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and maybe chicken vesuvio.

We had 52 people do the buffet this past weekend. It's catching on. And of course, you don't have to participate.

And most likely, next Friday, we're starting our Friday Fish Fry...........

Have you been to the remodeled place yet?

Jim,

No issues really with you coming in here and taking your shots but if you come in swinging and throwing punches don't sit there and call us out or tell us we can't take it when we swing back. At least we are here and not hiding at the first sign of trouble.

      It wasn't scott that warned me about the ice conditions another guy warned me about it.  It'll be interesting here shortly when snow starts hitting and people start hitting lakes with snowmobiles.  See how many find thin ice.  Kinda sucks but it is what it is can only take precautions while  going out.
    • bbfenatic
      Chill: I heard you guys had a good outing up North for the Trout..good job!  As fas as Melissa goes there is plenty of ice over on the crappie hole 9-11" but that area Scott was targeting Pike is always the last to freeze over on Melissa and it was not long ago that it did freeze out there...these larger bodies of water with rivers going through them or springs or that opened back up with those warmer temps and high winds are going to be suspect for quite a while unfortunately. Stay Safe Everyone!

    • Hoey
      Seasons Greetings to all.  It is ice fishing season!!!  Hurrah. I fished Friday and Saturday.  I arrived on Thursday evening and found a lot of opinions on the safety aspect of the ice.  The resort is ultra conservative in their assessments, and this should be expected as they have a lot at risk.  First ice explorers always push the limits.  For example one sled is on the bottom after breaking through 2 inches of unexpected weak ice, a week ago Sunday.   I found 11 inches were I traveled and fished, only going out a couple miles.  There is a lot of eight inch thick broken ice chunks to work around and through.  The bite Friday was very good.  Catching numbers were high, but size kept it from being great to excellent.  I ended up one fish short of my walleye/sauger limit.  My four sauger were 15 to 16 inchers - nice.  My three walleye were 15 to 17 inchers.  I had two for dinner.  So on Saturday I was looking for three nice walleye.  The bite was much slower.  We had an east wind with rising temps.  I was anticipating another Friday type bite.  It was generally zero to eight degrees every morning.  I finally ended the Saturday with two 17 inch walleye, one short of my limit again.   I plan to be back during the week following Christmas through New Years with family and friends.   Good Luck and practice safety!!!

      By Kristi Coughlon, DNR information officer Minnesotans are a generous lot. For the past 40 years, they’ve made it possible for the Minnesota Nongame Wildlife Program to help thousands of native species survive and thrive – including animals that are threatened, endangered and rare.  The program is now wrapping up its 40th anniversary with hopes that supporters will wrap up an end-of-year donation to put under the holiday tree in celebration of the many wildlife success stories it’s helped create, like the comeback of bald eagles and trumpeter swans. Success comes with a price tag, and rare species don’t collect a paycheck. They rely on our help. Unlike other DNR programs, the Nongame Wildlife Program doesn’t get general tax money; it receives no fees from hunting or fishing licenses. It’s funded almost entirely by voluntary donations made by people who want to ensure that Minnesota continues to have healthy natural systems that support a wide diversity of wildlife. Many of those donations are made when Minnesotans file their state income taxes, designating an amount on the line with the loon to go to the Nongame Wildlife Program. But people can donate anytime, online or by mail. Donations fund critical habitat restoration work, research projects, surveys to assess the status of threatened and endangered species, and outreach and education such as the popular eaglecam that reaches into millions of homes and classrooms in all 50 states and at least 160 countries around the world. Donations are tax deductible and matched dollar for dollar by the Reinvest in Minnesota (RIM) license plate fund. Donations also are used as match to federal grants and other outside funding sources, leveraging additional money to support nongame species conservation, research and habitat protection projects Looking for other reasons to donate? Here’s forty – one for each year of the program’s efforts: Monarch butterfly, bald eagle, forcipate emerald dragonfly, northern barrens tiger beetle, moneyface native mussel, Roger’s snaggletooth snail, tiger salamander, timber rattlesnake, jumping spider, common loon, red-tailed prairie leafhopper, wood frog, great plains toad, Blanding’s turtle, skipjack herring, tricolored bat, trumpeter swan, eastern bluebird, osprey, mudpuppy, golden-winged warbler, eastern hog-nose snake, pileated woodpecker, smoky shrew, wood turtle, American white pelican, piping plover, headwaters caddisfly, black tern, peregrine falcon, northern goshawk, slender madtom fish, boreal owl, rusty-patched bumble bee, red-shouldered hawk, yellow rail, plains pocket mouse, Juanita sphinx moth, northern bog lemming. And many more. During this season of giving, consider giving $40 for forty years to help Minnesota’s Nongame Wildlife Program continue its critical work to conserve wildlife species that aren’t hunted, from songbirds to salamanders, from butterflies to bats.

      Special fishing regulations will change March 1 on a number of Minnesota waters following an annual public input and review process, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Anglers need to know special regulations because they take precedence over statewide regulations,” said Al Stevens, fisheries program consultant with the DNR. “We have special regulations to improve fish populations and make fishing better or more sustainable.” Special regulations for individual waters are listed in a separate section of the Minnesota Fishing Regulations booklet and at mndnr.gov/fishmn, and are posted at public accesses. For this spring, new statewide northern pike zone regulations that take effect on inland waters will make it possible to do away with several previously existing special regulations that apply to individual waters and aim for similar outcomes as the zone regulations. The new statewide pike regulations go into effect in time for the fishing opener on Saturday, May 12. On waters that have a special fishing regulation, anglers are required to follow the special regulation and unless otherwise mentioned, all other regulations apply. Public process for special regulations
      Special regulations are put in place after fisheries managers write plans for the lakes they oversee and each provides objectives for achieving management goals. Before changes are made to special regulations, the DNR evaluates each regulation, shares what’s found in the evaluations and angler surveys, hosts public input meetings in the fall and reviews comments from the public about the regulations. Goals of individual lake management plans also are considered. “We need the public to tell us what they want for the process to work well, and we do value the input,” Stevens said. For this spring, 29 lakes and connected waters were reviewed. Changes detailed
      Pelican Lake in St. Louis County: A special regulation on bass will be made permanent, while a regulation on northern pike will be dropped. An evaluation of the regulations showed that the 14-20 inch protected slot limit with one over 20 inches in possession on bass maintained a quality bass fishery, while allowing for an opportunity to harvest smaller bass. The regulation was generally popular with anglers and will continue. The 24-36 inch protected slot limit on northern pike provided some benefit to the pike population; however, the benefits of the regulation are similar to the new statewide zone regulation, which provides the opportunity to drop the regulation and simplify regulations complexity for anglers. Sand Lake and connected waters (Little Sand, Portage, and Birds Eye lakes) in Itasca County: A special regulation for northern pike will be dropped, and the lakes will change to the statewide limits. The new statewide zone regulation for northern pike will likely be just as effective as the special regulation in encouraging harvest of abundant small pike while improving sizes of pike. Big Swan Lake in Todd County: A 24-36 inch protected slot limit with only one fish over 36 inches will be made permanent after the review showed sizes of pike have improved. Also, the regulation’s expanded possession limit of six, with only one fish over 36 inches, will remain in effect as the number of small pike has continued to remain higher than desired. Balm, Big Bass, South Twin and Deer lakes in Beltrami County; Portage Lake in Cass County; and Flour, Hungry Jack and Two Island lakes in Cook County: These eight lakes with restrictive size regulations (either a 12-20 inch protected slot or catch-and-release only regulation) on bass will be modified to a less restrictive, 14-20 inch protected slot with one over 20 inches to allow additional harvest of small bass while still protecting quality sized fish. Although the existing regulations were shown to be effective, the new protected slot is expected to provide a similar protection to quality fish and with the added benefit of allowing additional harvest of abundant smaller bass. Itasca, Ozawindib and Mary lakes in Itasca State Park: Special regulations on sunfish, black crappie and bass for three lakes in the park will be standardized among the lakes. While the existing regulations largely have been effective and have been generally popular with park visitors, the DNR will standardize sunfish and crappie possession limits to five, drop a minimum size restriction on crappie for Ozawindib Lake and modify the current restrictive bass regulations (catch-and-release on Mary Lake and the 12-20 inch protected slot on Ozawindib Lake) to a 14-20 inch protected slot with one over 20 inches for both lakes. The goal is to simplify regulations for park visitors while maintaining fishing quality. Sissabagamah and Long lakes in Aitkin County: Special regulations on northern pike will be dropped in favor of the new statewide zone pike regulation. Some benefits to the sizes of pike have been seen since a protected slot regulation was enacted; however, the north-central zone pike regulations may provide a similar or even better outcome and also serve to reduce regulation complexity. Bass Lake in Todd County and Cedar Lake in Morrison County: Trophy regulations (40 inch minimum length requirement, possession limit of one) on northern pike will be modified to a 26 inch maximum with a possession limit of three. While trophy northern pike still exist, growth rates of smaller pike in these lakes have declined. Allowing harvest opportunity on pike under 26 inches may help the population while still protecting medium to large pike. Kraut, Peanut, North Shady, Squash and Tomato lakes in Cook County: Catch-and-release regulations on trout in these five lakes will be dropped this spring. Additionally, the ban on winter fishing and special tackle restrictions for these lakes will go away. The catch-and-release with tackle restrictions and the winter fishing closure did not meet management goals for these stocked trout fisheries. They are remotely located and special regulations and the closed winter season did not provide quality fishing in these lakes. But the same special regulations will continue on three other lakes – Thompson, Thrush and Turnip lakes – that were reviewed at the same time. Moody Lake in Crow Wing County: This lake will reopen to fishing after having been closed to fishing since 2001. Entirely located within an aquatic management area, the lake has been used as a fisheries research lake and at times was used for rearing walleye. It no longer is needed for that purpose and plans are to reclaim the lake by using rotenone to remove undesirable fish and then restock with walleye, yellow perch and bass, and implement a catch-and-release regulation to maintain quality sized fish for anglers to enjoy. Little Boy and Wabedo lakes in Cass County: These lakes will have an 18-26 inch protected slot, with one over 26 inches, in a possession limit of four walleye – which will be in effect for 10 years and then re-evaluated. The regulation was proposed in response to local requests to improve and protect the walleye population, which will likely benefit from restrictions on harvesting walleye longer than 18 inches. Visit mndnr.gov/fishmn for more information on special fishing regulations. Special regulations that change March 1 will be listed in the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Regulations booklet.

      We made our annual trip up to Red Lake Indian Reservation on Saturday.  Fished the whole day chasing rainbow and brook trout.  Before anyone tries to call me out it's legal to fish trout on the reservation during the winter and it's actually the only thing you can legally keep on the tribal waters during the winter.  We did have a guide and he was amazing and was cheap!  14 adults and 2 kids and we ended up keeping 65 trout out of 76 possible.  We left the ice by 2 so could have finished out the day and easily "Limited out" but we had enough to make us happy.  Its so weird being in 8' of water catching trout when you think they should be in 30-60'.  I'm done working for the year so its time to drill some holes locally and try to have some fun.  Local reports are hit and  miss but seeing friends catching stuff and a mixed bag.  Its awesome to see guys with 3-4 different species that they are catching.  Buddy was on Melissa last night and found 3" of ice.  So please be careful and I read an article today that someone went through on Mud Lake by Big Floyd and someone went through on Little Cormorant.  FYI those that fish Big Floyd a buddy reported to me that the deep hole just froze over end of last week and he was saying there was a 75 x 75 opening that wouldn't freeze up. Hopefully with cold air coming in over Christmas we can get lakes to be drive-able shortly.
