      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 .

Lost and Found

Recommended Posts

I don't know if there is an actuall lost and found or not but this morning someone broke into my truck and stole my gps and a few other things right from my driveway. Please keep an eye out for a Lowrance I Finder Pro Gps with my name and phone number engraved across the whole back. If found there is a reward, had it for two years and it is an important part of my arsenal for the outdoors. Thanks - Jason

Jason,

You have my sympathy, I know how you feel, I am still mourning the loss of my tackle box and fishing poles from 6 years ago. I had a GPS marked with a ton of fishing spots and deer stands that were hard to find in the dark. My incident happened in Circle Pines, My son and I were at a friends house that had the boat, I went into his house, was about to sit down and have a cup of coffee, I sent my then 4 yr old son out to the truck to get the tackle box and the fishing poles, we were there maybe 5 minutes at this time. This was at 4:30 in the morning, My little guy comes running into back into the house, DADDY, DADDY, the fishing poles and your tackle box is gone (He had just graduated to a adult size Gander Mt. spinning reel combo)The look on his face could break the strongest of men. I still get tears picturing his face. My friend lived in a good part of town..well we thought. I had in my tackle box a 6 month old Magellan handheld GPS I forget which model, Just purchased several crank baits, mostly for Bass fishing, and, what I miss the most is the 35mm camera I got for Christmas from my wife and kids, my daughter does not like fishing, so, I only had pictures of my son,(camera stayed in the tackle box). and the enormous fish he had caught, okay, what he thought we enormous fish. This "a hole" could have gave me back the camera and kept everything else. I have 6 months of fishing with my son, all that are left is memories, the bad thing is he does not remember a lot about the fishing. I have been trying to make up for it and take him out even more.

It could have been a lot worse, what if my son would have been closer and this guy could have taken him. It really pisses me off that people steal. for whatever reason, drugs, nothing else to do...just for fun? People work hard for what they have.

Sorry to hijack your post, it brought back memories, just like it happened yesterday.

Good luck in finding your property.

I don't know what to say, my heart goes out to you and your boy... Ihave an 8 yr old daughter who is my best fishin buddy, winter and summer. She was crushed more than I was over the gps. She told me it was because what it meant to me. The best thing she said was " Now we'll have to go fishin twice as much to fill up the new gps with our old spots. That was great!! On the other side of this, I think more parents should be like you, kinghunter and myself and get those kids out and get them into something constructive like the fishing and hunting. It does teach many values.

Thank you and I Totally agree, get them out there and experience the thrill and ethics behind "why" we hunt. Not only for the kill, but, the respect one has for nature and all she has to offer, not only for the dinner table, the mind as well. My daughter did not pick up on the fishing she would rather try and catch a cow. grin.gif She loves those steaks.

My son cannot wait to take firearm safety, and, be able to go deer hunting. I tell him he only has three years to go. I get a strong hint that he wants to bird hunt too. I have never done that, I think it would be fun.

Stealing fishing tackle and equipment has to be the lowest form of theft, when they are caught nothing much is done to the theives. A note to Stmichael, my 3 boys are all grown men, we fished and hunted together from the time they could hold a gun or a fish pole. Those times were the best time of my life, spend all the time you can manage hunting or fishing with your sons and daughters, you will never regrete it. wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

EFGH-GREAT POST

EFGH, I hear you, and feel the same way, I was going to take him out with me rifle hunting, but, I think I am going to wait until after and just take him out and sit in a stand, or get one of those blinds to sit in That way it won't matter if he is restless. I may pick up my bow license, just in case. wink.gif (this will be his first time sitting "watching for deer". Just like the first few times out fishing, if you make him wait out there too long he will get bored with it. I do not want that to happen.

He is into shooting bow, so, I think that this would be a great experience for him.

I was thinking about bringing some puzzle books along so if he gets bored he can keep his mind occupied. I do not think that is going to happen, the problem may be trying to get him to whisper when he talks. for some reason he thinks I am across the county when he starts talking.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early
    • ZachD
      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.

      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.

      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks

      Yesterday the MN DNR announced a license requirement change effective NOW for this ice season. All Wheel House and other fishing structures which cannot be folded / collapsed must be licensed even if you remove the house when you get off the ice.

      Harvest climbs 16 percent from 2016 Minnesota firearms hunters registered 161,057 deer through the third weekend of deer season, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  Preliminary results through the third weekend show that the number of deer registered was up 16 percent from 2016. Of the deer harvested, 53 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent during the same period in 2016. In Zone 1, in northeastern Minnesota, total firearms harvest was up 36 percent. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 10 percent and Zone 3, in southeastern Minnesota, was down 5 percent. “The conditions were generally good for hunters participating in the last week of the Zone 1 season and for the start of the 3B season in the southeast,” said Erik Thorson, acting big game program leader, “which provided a boost to the statewide firearms harvest.” Based upon the number of antlerless permits available and the number of permit areas that allow multiple deer to be taken, the DNR is projecting the 2017 total deer harvest to be around 200,000. The 2016 total harvest was 173,213 and to date firearms and archery hunters have harvested about 180,000 deer this year. In much of Minnesota, the firearms deer season ended Nov. 12, and the northern rifle zone season ended Nov. 19. The late southeast firearms deer season is open through Sunday, Nov. 26. The muzzleloader season begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. More information on deer management can be found at mndnr.gov/deer. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
