      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 hunter 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.

I heard this as well! What a sad story!

That area is where I grew up hunting, and it's an easy place to get lost if you stray away from the roads without a compass!

I hope they find the guy soon!!

Yeah, it sounds that way. I was up in Thief River Falls on Sunday for my nieces birthday party, and it was the talk of the town.

I heard a lot of rumors and speculation.

The thing I do know for sure is that people were discouraged from hunting the area, and they were talking about getting a volunteer search party together. This will need numerous people, as they plan on covering a very large area.

Sounds like they may be looking for volunteers again soon...

They are going to notify the public when they need them... Hope the guy and his dog are still alive but with the cooler temps at night that makes it tougher to survive...

Here is the details from the Radio this AM...

If you want to help you need to call 218-333-8320...

There are various sites from Northern Minnesota that they will transport volunteers from. In Bemidji area they will load the volunteers up on school busses and take them up toward fourtown. The loading site will be Bemidji High School.

They mentioned that they don't want anyone showing up at the search site or their own you must pre-register.. Also no 4 wheelers...

The Pioneer this morning indicated that his coveralls, shirt, socks and lip balm were found Monday. That does not sound good.

Don't want to bring the paranormal into this thread.

I am not saying I believe in this stuff or not.

But it sounds like this movie I have seen long ago

Per Bemidji Pioneer this morning, ground search has been suspended due to 2" of snow covering footprints and reducing scent. Apparently a blood hound on Monday tracked a substantial distance from where the clothes were found before it lost the trail. Periodic air searches will continue.

when hypothermia sets in the mind does strange things. It wouldn't suprise me if he dropped the clothes himself in the confused state he would be in.

Walleyegal is right on. It is actually very common for hypothermia victims to remove their clothing. They get past the point of shivering and think they feel warm. Not a good sign at all.

I haven't seen anything in the newspaper. I thought that with the good weather there would be a lot of hunters out, increasing the likelihood that he would be found, but apparently not so far.

Have not heard anything lately either, except the family has been out looking still. i just hope they don't have to be the ones to find him.

Per Saturday Pioneer, search has been hampered due to flooding caused by beaver dams. Dogs picked up a scent, but lost it due to pooled water. Search will be resumed after a hard freeze.

      Per the DNR news release dated November 20th:  “Wheeled fish houses, which formerly were considered portable – and thus excluded from licensing requirements for shelters – will now need to be licensed,” said Al Stevens, fisheries survey and systems consultant with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “In the past, anglers using wheelhouses could use them without shelter licenses as long as they were occupied, including overnight.” The change pursued by the DNR and enabled by 2017 legislation accompanied hunting and angling fee increases. An annual resident shelter license is $16. A three-year license is $43. Owners of houses to be rented pay $31 annually or $88 for a three-year license. A valid license tag must be attached to the outside of the fish house in a readily visible location. ~~~~~ Any ideas on how to go about attaching them since they're no longer stickers like they used to be? Apparently you can't put them inside in a window facing out per the 'outside' requirement of the law.

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.

      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!
    • workin4bait
      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.
    • kelly-p
      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.
    • KidMoe
      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!

      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff
