      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 .

Missing man search...

Recommended Posts

big drift

A hunter by the name of Korey Kelly is missing in Northern Beltrami County since Monday. He was grouse hunting with a friend and his friends golden retriever. After splitting up neither the dog nor Korey have been heard from.

They were hunting in the Red Lake Wildlife Management area north of Fourtown.

Please contact Beltrami County Sheriffs Dept. 218-751-9111 or 911 if you locate anything in the area.

Hunters discharging weapons have made the search difficult as searches try to confirm who was firing if it was Korey or someone else.

HEard on the radio this morning that they were going to start scaling back the search.They say they have covered 20sq miles on land and in the air and found nothing. Talking about bringing dogs to help.

Bad deal.

They found the dog walking a road and found some clothes about a mile from the Rapid River Road.

But still no hunter or body?

Sounds potentially like hypothermia.... Final stages people think they are too warm and start taking clothing off. frown.gif

how cold has it been up there, has it rained at all, that would contribute...but being a hunter you think he would have some survival skills..sounds fishy...

Kodiak,

Nothing fishy about it. It's just a very expansive area where one can get turned around and not end up coming upon a road or civilation for a very long distance.

My dad volunteered a day last weekend to help the search crews since he grew up about 12 miles from there. It is a sad situation but surely not fishy.

The Bemidji newspaper web site has the most up to date info on the search from what I've heard.

Having been deering hunting about thirty miles straight north of there for the last, wow, thirty years, I can very well see how an inexperienced hunter or one ill prepared can get lost and turned around. In the area I deer hunt in there's swamps that are bigger then most of the "woods" city people hunt in. This is a grave reminder that when we all go into the woods in the fall me MUST HAVE the basics. Knife, compass, fire and a mental picture of where the roads are in case something happens so you can formulate a plan as to what you are going to do to get out. This story doesn't sound fishy at all, just sad. It's grim but I'm sure that this weekend or next, the poor boy will be found.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
