      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 .

Greatest line I ever heard spoken about sports came from an old Hockey cosch down a road a bit from me, here in Lansing, MI. Talking about Ron Mason, from MSU. He always said, when you get in the playoffs, "it's not how good you are -- it's how good you play."

Great day to be a Cardinal fan!!! I've been waiting for this for a long time. The last time the Cards won the World Series, I was 11 years old. Now they win again when my daughter is 11. I remember game 7 of the 1982 Series well. It was a school night and the folks wouldn't let me stay up to watch the end of the game. I snuck out of bed and found the transistor radio and listened to it quietly under the sheets. It was hard not to yell and scream. So last night, the kids got to stay up late and watch 'em finish it and there was plenty of yelling and screaming going on.

I really didn't care who won. I just wanted to see a good series. I thought it was boring and painful to watch to be honest. I think that was the cards 10th title or something. Kinda like the yankees winnning it. I don't like cards dirty manger, overrated Rolen and was kinda hoping ALbert would be like Bonds and never get a ring. Dang maybe i was rooting for the tigers shocked.gif

But they are the champs and they earned it. Congrads cards fans!

Gonna have to return that backhand from Outdoor with this forehand:

I did not think it was a boring series at all.

I had picked the Tigers based on their rest, age, season record, pitching, and homefield. But I was always afraid of the Card lineup. I knew those guys were good, and they proved it.

Congrats to the Cards and their fans.

Thanks guys like I always said your a classy bunch. Watched the game again and ordered my world series wardrobe this morning, man is that stuff expensive, but hey it's been 24 years what the hey... I remember in 1982 when I graduated High School and went down to the local Pipe & Tobacco in Pittsfield, MA where I was born and raised and had a custom tee-shirt made on a red shirt with white lettering on the front and that gaudy block lettering was ST. LOUIS CARDINALS and on the back it said WORLD SERIES CHAMPS 1982. That shirt I had for about 15 years until it just went through the wash one to many times and was shredded. I always wondered if I would ever get another... Thanks to a Cardinal team that was fundementally sound except for Dunc who get's a pass because it's his first year in the outfield. They were lucky enough to do all the little things well and come together at the right time and I am proud of em.

outdoor ran - Relax buddy your Brewers will be back.. laugh.gif The series MVP David Eckstein didn't exactly make a boat load of cash in his last contract and even though Albert did, he's deserved every penny for carrying the team on his back for 90% of the regular season.

Detroit has nothing to be ashamed of they just weren't ready and neither were we in 2004. They will be hungry next season and will be determined and I think the rest of the central better watch out. Class Manager and a great organization, itwas a pleasure to play the AL Champs and I have nothing but respect and believe me I am humbled by all of this...

      What got me hooked on musky fishing when I was a kid was topwater. Nothing more exciting than watching the water explode. My first musky came on a rubber frog while bass fishing, my little brother casted over my line and as I lectured him and reeled my line up as quick as I could, WHAM. Since then I have had some of my best memories from topwater. Poe's giant jackpot, prop baits, creepers, klack/buzz bait. He's going to spend a lot of time casting, giving him something to watch helps pass the time and when he gets follows they will normally be shallow so he will be able to see them.

      I have $50 to spend on Musky lures for a 14 year old boy.  Last fall he caught a nice musky, from my kayak, and was unable to land it to get a picture.  He did get it up to the kayak several times so he got a good look at it and has been bit by the Musky Fishing Bug.  I am looking for suggestions for the young man and was hoping to get some help here.

      Last year I rented a house through Hunter Winfield's Resort in Isle.  I looked around at many options and they seemed to have what I was looking for.  Their wheel-houses are very nice and have everything you list above.  Bathroom, TV/DVD, electricity (didn't have to fill the generator once), stove/oven.  I reserved an 8' x 16', but they upgraded me to an 8x20' - nice surprise.  Real nice, and plenty of room for two adults and 2 kids.   I had so much fun I'm going back in January.

      Buddy had a camera down on Saturday and he said he'd get a mixture of panfish to come in then they'd fly out of the hole and in comes a pike or two.  He said that when the gills would leave it was because a pike would be around the hole and he knew it was safe again when he'd see his first panfish.  That was in 18-22 fow.

      No chronic wasting disease was detected in more than 11,000 precautionary samples from deer that hunters harvested this fall in north-central, central and southeastern Minnesota, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  “This is good news for Minnesota,” said Lou Cornicelli, wildlife research manager for the DNR. “The results lend confidence that the disease is not spread across the landscape.” In all, 7,813 deer were tested in the north-central area, 2,529 in the central area and 1,149 in the southeastern area outside deer permit area 603, the CWD management zone. Researchers still are submitting samples from cooperating taxidermists so final results will updated online at mndnr.gov/cwdcheck as they become available. Given no deer with CWD were found in north-central and central Minnesota, the DNR will narrow surveillance next fall to areas closer to the farms where CWD was detected. A fourth precautionary surveillance area will be added in fall 2018 in Winona County because CWD recently was detected in captive deer there. Precautionary testing in north-central and central Minnesota became necessary after CWD was found in multiple captive deer on farms near Merrifield in Crow Wing County and Litchfield in Meeker County. It also was conducted in the deer permit areas directly adjacent to southeast Minnesota’s deer permit area 603, the only place in Minnesota where CWD is known to exist in wild deer. Minnesota’s CWD response plan calls for testing of wild deer after the disease is detected in either domestic or wild deer. All results from three consecutive years of testing must report CWD as not detected before DNR stops looking for the disease. Three years of testing are necessary because CWD incubates in deer slowly. They can be exposed for as long as 18 months before laboratory tests of lymph node samples can detect the disease. Proactive surveillance and precautionary testing for CWD is a proven strategy that allows the DNR to manage the disease by finding it early and reacting quickly and aggressively to control it. These actions, which were taken in 2005 to successfully combat bovine tuberculosis in northwestern Minnesota deer and in 2010 to eliminate a CWD infection in wild deer near Pine Island, provide the best opportunity to eliminate disease spread. Precautionary testing is necessary to detect the disease early. Without early detection, there’s nothing to stop CWD from becoming established at a relatively high prevalence and across a large geographic area. At that point, there is no known way to control the disease. “Overall, hunter cooperation and public support has been tremendous,” Cornicelli said. “While there are always challenges when you conduct this type of surveillance effort, it really couldn’t have been successful without the cooperation of hunters, taxidermists, landowners and the businesses that allowed us to operate check stations.” Complete information about CWD and DNR efforts to keep Minnesota deer healthy are available on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/cwd.

      Boundaries for a special late-season deer hunt to help control chronic wasting disease in southeastern Minnesota’s Fillmore County have been expanded to include portions of three surrounding deer permit areas, the Department of Natural Resources said.  The expansion of boundaries for the nine-day hunt that lasts from Saturday, Jan. 6, to Sunday, Jan. 14, became necessary when CWD test results of harvested deer revealed two infected deer in Forestville State Park and a suspected infection north of the disease’s core area around Preston.  During the upcoming hunt, deer may be taken in an approximate 10-mile radius surrounding the new discoveries. That area includes all of deer permit area 603 as well as the portion of permit area 345 south of Interstate 90, the southern portion of permit area 347 and the northern portion of permit area 348. A map of the area and complete details are available on the DNR’s website at mndnr.gov/cwd. “Hunters must plan ahead,” said Lou Cornicelli, the DNR’s wildlife research manager. “Private land makes up most of the area and hunters must have landowner permission. Public land in the area likely will be crowded. And hunting opportunities will be limited and available only by permit at Forestville State Park and Pin Oak Prairie Scientific and Natural Area.” Within 24 hours of harvest, each deer must be taken to one of four stations where DNR staff will register the deer and collect lymph node tissue for CWD testing. All electronic registration will be turned off. With the exception of fawns, deer cannot be moved from the hunt area without a test result that shows CWD was not detected. Prior to test results, hunters may properly quarter their deer and bone-out meat but the head, spinal column and all brain material must remain in the area until the animal’s test results show a not-detected status. Designated dumpsters where hunters can dispose of carcasses and parts will be available in Preston and Forestville. A refrigerated trailer will be available in Preston for temporary storage of the entire carcass if hunters choose to wait for the test result before processing their deer. After receiving a not-detected test result for the deer, the hunter can take the entire deer out of the area. Since the mid-September start of the archery season 1,334 deer have been tested in permit area 603 and results have shown six confirmed and one suspect cases of CWD. Although the number of CWD-infected deer is down from the 11 positives found last season, three of the new positives were found outside the core area. “We were glad to see the prevalence go down but we’re unsure if we have a disease expansion or if males recently moved into a new area,” Cornicelli said. “Test results of deer taken during this special hunt will help us determine what the new disease management zone boundary will look like in 2018.” Complete information about CWD and DNR efforts to keep Minnesota deer healthy are available on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/cwd. Special hunt rules Hunt dates are Jan. 6-14, 2018. Hunt is open to residents and nonresidents. There is no bag limit, the antler point restriction will be eliminated in this area and cross-tagging (party hunting) will be allowed. Hunters can use any unfilled 2017 license or purchase disease management tags for $2.50. You do not need a deer hunting license to purchase disease management tags, which are valid for deer of either sex. Legal firearms are shotguns, muzzleloader or crossbows using either a firearm or muzzleloader license. Archery equipment must be used if the person is hunting with an archery license. Centerfire rifles are not allowed. All deer must be registered in person at one of the stations below. Registration stations will be staffed 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily during the season: Chatfield – Magnum Sports, 20 Main St. S; Preston – Preston Forestry office, 912 Houston St.; Forestville State Park; Rushford – Pam’s Corner Convenience, at the intersection of Minnesota highways 16 and 43. Submission of a CWD sample is mandatory. All deer will be tagged and tested by DNR staff. Fawns will be allowed to leave the zone. Carcasses from adult deer must remain in the zone until a “not detected” test is reported. This test takes three to four business days so hunters should make the appropriate arrangements prior to killing a deer. Test results can be checked on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/cwdcheck or by calling the DNR Information Center at 888-646-6367. Hunting at Forestville, Pin Oak Prairie and Cherry Grove
      Forestville State Park and Pin Oak Prairie SNA will both be open to limited deer hunting during the special hunt. To avoid overcrowding, permits for these areas will be issued on a first come, first served basis starting at noon on Monday, Dec. 18. Forestville State Park will remain open to visitors during the special hunt. Hunters must have a filled or unfilled 2017 firearm or muzzleloader license to obtain a permit. There is no group application for these hunts. Permits can be obtained online or wherever DNR licenses are sold. There is no fee for these permits. The same hunt rules as described for permit area 603 apply to these areas. Successful hunters can use any unfilled tag, or purchase disease management permits for $2.50. Specific hunt numbers, dates and available permits are: 801: Forestville State Park, Jan. 6-9, 2018, 130 permits. 802: Forestville State Park, Jan. 10-14, 2018,130 permits. 803: Pin Oak Prairie SNA, Jan. 6-9, 2018, five permits. 804: Pin Oak Prairie SNA, Jan. 10- 14, 2018, five permits. The Cherry Grove Blind Valley SNA, which adjoins the Cherry Grove Wildlife Management Area, also is open to deer hunting and no special permit is required. Food safety
      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that, to date, there have been no reported cases of CWD infection in people. However, the CDC advises people not to eat meat from animals known to have CWD. Go to www.cdc.gov for more information. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
