      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 feel your pain. Wish I had the $$$ to buy some. We used to lease about 2000 acres for dirt cheap until 8 years ago. It was sold and we were chased to public land. Its not the same, but deer camp and deer hunting is great. I am just glad to be blessed with the opportunity. Good luck to you. Hopefully you find somewhere to hunt!

Yeah I hear what you guys are saying because some of the hunting land that I will hunt on this year will be sold next spring, so no more hunting there. Im going to look hard for a good 80-200 acre junk of land in the park rapids, bemidji area to buy. I go to Bemidji State right now and have bow hunted the state land around here, and thats fine, but when rifle season comes its a joke and everyone is fighting over stands and spots, and I really don't need that, cuz when I deer hunt I don't want to see or hear another person for miles around.

I for one am from texas and although DOVE hunting is 100 times better there Deer hunting for your average joe is not you see although texas is so big most of it is privately owned. I can tell you I would have never experienced deer hunting if not for living and working in minnesota as well as duck and geese which i have just started on this year as well as pheaseant. I am glad for all the public land they have in minnesota i thoroughly enjoy it i take the advantage through its ups and downs. I try to be respectful to other hunters and be friendly and courteous.

That's why us sportsmen NEED to participate and support organizations like Pheasants Forever, MN Deer Hunter's, National Wild Turkey Federation, etc.

I helped start our local PF chapter and we have added HUNDREDS of WMA (public hunting land-FOREVER) to our county just in the past 4 years.

I alone cannot afford to buy hunting land, so I hunt where I can get permission and on state land. At least my kids will be able to do the same when they grow up.

Don't you think that by the time our grandkids,kids are old enough to hunt, that unless you own your own land there won't be any place to hunt. Every year they are passing new laws that have to do with public or state land.

I just had this discussion with a hunting partner Sunday I came to the conclusion that the land yo look at buying now will not get any less in the future. Its just that the prices around here what Iam looking at is $2,300.00 an acre that can not be tillable due to low lying and swamps. to me that is a lot!!

It won't get easier, but those organizations, like PF can help politically also.

I think I heard somewere that PF is the largest habitat lobbying organization.

I am sorry i hit the wrong button the price per acre was $2,700.00. $192,000 for 70 acres. The thing is I am sure someone will eventually pay that. I am just not sure if it will be me!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?

      How's the bite been recently.   Coming up for the weekend and curious at what depths to start at.

      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.

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.

      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.
