      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 .

Wood ticks are back out!!

Recommended Posts

BLACKJACK

Picked a couple of wood ticks off one of my dogs the other night, one of them was one of those real small ones you hate to see, so I checked my other dog and sure enough, found a couple on her. I had used the One-spot stuff earlier in the year but as per usual the ticks 'go away' during the middle of the summer, but now a few are back out, so check your dogs!

I saw 1 deer tick each the last two weekends crawling on the dog. If they would have bit in the frontline would have got them I would think. Those deer ticks sure are small.

Frontline is a monthly application, so if your in dought of the last time you appied it, might as well do one more application for the season. I think the tick would have to make contact with the skin to recieve any of the chemicals from the product.

I use it monthly and was surprised to find a tick, but it has happened in the past also.

live near bemidji and last few times out grouse hunting, my two dogs have had numerous deer ticks on them. use frontline and seems to be working, as ticks are gone next the day. also get lymes shot every year.

Just got back from 2 trips grouse hunting in park rapids area ticks are real thick . I also put on frontline the day i left home to go hunting my dog had a number of ticks but the next day they were all dead i used a fine tooth comb after every hunt but i still managed to miss some but they were dead in his kennel the next day.I don't think frontline does much to repell them it just does a good job taking care of them after they attach themself.

Speak of repelling them, I've used Cedar Chips for a while now, and Sunday I caught a tick actually leaving the dog box. An old timer told me years ago that the cedar smell is too strong for a tick......I have always used cedar for the smell they give my dogs, and kept his comment in the back of my mind. I guess he was right!

Any additional ammo against this pests is never a bad thing!

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?

      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
