      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 think I will be going back out to Garvin park where it is archery only. It's probably to late but I need to adjust a stand location a bit to try and get close to the 8 pointer I saw twice last weekend about 75 yds away. What's in ND that you are returning there so often?

How did you do in SW mn last weekend. We hunted south of the Balaton area and it was terribly slow. Didn't see our first deer till almost 4:00 pm on Saturday. Out of our group of 6 we got two does, and missed 2 more. When we registered our deer on Sunday Afternoon there were only 16 registered for the area. Just didn't see a lot of deer or hunters, and we covered a lot of ground.

Saw plenty of deer both days. Our party ended up with 6 bucks and 2 does. Weather and moonlight made it tough on Sunday. We shot 3 bucks early Saturday morning. Bucks were 2 tens, a nine, and 3 baskets.

yep Jefflawdog@yahoo.com

If you didn't put in a subject its possible it ended up in spam, and then I wouldn't have seen it as I just delete that all the time without looking through it. That yahoo address gets dumped on with spam constantly and there is too much to look through...

Got some deer this weekend (I didn't get one), but man did I ever see a bunch of illegal "hunters" out there! Some of which REALLY ticked me and my whole family off. Hope the CO got their butts!

Hope everyone else had a safe and enjoyable hunt. Our was fun, for the most part.

We ended up with three bucks and one doe that my 14 year old step-son got. It was his first deer and he was REALLY pumped...so was I! Great deer for him, he did everything right and just smoked her with that little 20 ga. youth gun at about 18 yards.

I never fired a shot, but spent most of my time trying to get him a deer anyway. I still have muzzleloading and plenty of time with the bow if I need it. With the Elk meat and his deer though, I'm not exactly short on meat or long on freezer space...

It was a good season. We filled with four bucks and one antlerless. The Mrs. got some shooting this year so she was happy. Many deer were seen and fun was had by all. The walking was fairly easy and most of the deer got up in range. Now we can spend the winter in the ice house enjoying the rewards of the hunt. Jerky, sticks, and brats always taste good in the winter. The transition has begun.

Lawdog,

You hunting around Hatfield, and north?

Like on the old Demuth section?????

I've been gone 30 some years, but still have some fond memories in the pasture east of the homesite.

Reddog,

SMALL WORLD! My parents now live on the old Demuth home site and have for about a decade now. The land we couldn't get bought though as it was in a messy estate fight and the quarter is now split each side of the family owns half of it, other than what mom/dad got with the acreage/homesite. Before it got split out I got to hunt that pasture and took some very nice mallards off the stock pond late season in a storm once and always chased some pheasants in it. The non local family members have it now and I've tried to get access but they have it posted for one guy who hunts it and no one else. Kind of a disappointment as my father literally gave them thousands of gallons of water to help their tree planting project and now I can't even hunt it...

Would I know you or your family????

I thought that would be your parents home when I made the post..

Actually, we're related... pretty closely, at that...

My grandma Peg, was a Haubrich.

Auntie Beth and Rex, Grace, Little Jim,

Just seen Bob Standish last weekend, and had a great time talking with him

Listened to your mom play at church many a year when I was growing up. Probably even had her for a religion teacher a decade or two. hehehe

You mention a race car in your profile? We got every week to Husets, and Jackson, and occasionally Knoxville weekly show and always to the Kville Nationals.

What do you race?

You wouldnt believe the ducks we used to shoot off that stock dam back in the 70s... Some great memories, right there.

There was a slab crappie bite there one summer, about 1968, but needless to say, I think we fished em out. Back then, we thought it could never end..

      Applications due by Saturday, Dec. 16  The Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission are seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee.  “The Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee plays a critical role in helping us achieve the vision Minnesotans have for use of the Parks and Trails Legacy Funds and creates an accessible and equitable, integrated system of state and regional parks and trails in Minnesota,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters. The committee is planning a series of regional events during the year to celebrate Legacy accomplishments and engage Minnesotans on the question, “Why Parks and Trails Legacy Matters.”  Information about the events will be available in January on Facebook (/PTLegacyMN) and on the committee website (www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac). The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents. Committee members should have expertise in two or more of the four strategic pillars of the plan: Connect people and the outdoors. Acquire land and create opportunities. Take care of what we have. Coordinate among partners. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. Meetings are scheduled every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Interested individuals may complete the application form online at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/member-application or print it out and return it to Paul Purman, Department of Natural Resources, Box 39, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155. Anyone with questions can contact Paul via phone at 651-259-5643 or email at paul.purman@state.mn.us. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Thanks much Huntnfish and ZachD!!!  Had the wife pick me up some CCI 209 Magnum primers and seems to have fixed the issue.  Went out the other night and put 7 rounds through the ole CVA and didn't have a single hangfire.  I'm ready for the weekend.

      Anglers and others interested in Department of Natural Resources strategies for managing Grand Marias area lakes and streams are invited to review and comment on management plans scheduled for review this fall. This annual process includes several waters located within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Comments on lakes within the BWCAW will be accepted until Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW, will extend through Feb. 15. A management plan identifies specific management activities planned for a lake or stream over the next five to 20 years, including any proposed stocking or special regulations. “Management plans are our best single sources of information on past, present and desired future conditions in our lakes and streams,” said Steve Persons, Grand Marais area fisheries supervisor. “Comments and suggestions from those most interested in these waters are crucial when it comes to making plans and determining management success. For anglers this is the best opportunity to influence how these lakes and streams are managed.” In the Grand Marais area, plans for the following lakes and streams will reviewed this winter. Lake plans under review: The status and preservation of native lake trout populations will be the primary concern in plans being revised for Blue Snow and Gabimichigami Lakes. Both are located inside the BWCAW. Stream trout stocking and management strategies will be reviewed in Thompson, Thrush, Turnip, Olson, Kraut, Little Portage, Olga, Mavis (BWCAW), Missing Link (BWCAW), Meditation (BWCAW), Talus, Trout, Pine (near Two Island Lake), Unnamed (near Tom Lake), Chester, Extortion, and North Shady Lakes. Options to consider include changes in species, reductions in stocking frequency, and changes in the number or size of fish stocked. In Mine, Peanut, Weasel (Sled), Tomato, Trip, and Rog (BWCAW) Lakes, fisheries managers are considering eliminating trout stocking, due to the high cost of stocking remote lakes by air, poor survival of stocked fish, or use that appears to have been too low to justify the cost of continued stocking.  Angler feedback on fisheries in these lakes is critically needed for these important decisions. Plans for Devilfish, Gust, Hand, and Tom Lakes will be reviewed with attention to the status and needs of walleye fisheries in those lakes. Moore Lake will be reviewed to determine whether it offers any potential for panfish management. Plans for several lightly-used BWCAW lakes in the area, including Caribou (by Clearwater), Clove, Kiskadinna, Long, Mora, Morgan, Skipper, and Tepee Lakes will be reviewed. Those plans will be revised primarily to incorporate any new survey data that may have been obtained, and to establish survey schedules for the next few years. Streams plans under review: Plans for Beaverdam Creek and the Swamp River will be reviewed.  Both are marginal trout streams, and may be considered for removal from the State’s list of designated trout streams. Plans for the Cascade River, Elbow Creek, and the Onion River will also be reviewed. All three support thriving brook trout populations, with the Cascade and Onion Rivers also supporting steelhead and salmon in their lower reaches. Plans will focus on habitat and water quality, hydrology and watershed issues. The DNR is considering removing the portion of Elbow Creek above Elbow Lake from the State’s list of designated trout streams, since no trout have been found in that part of the stream in recent surveys. Current plans for lakes and streams in the area as well as recent fish population assessment information are available for review at the DNR’s Grand Marais area fisheries office, at 1356 E. Highway 61, Grand Marais, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information, call or email Steve Persons at 218-387-6022 or steve.persons@state.mn.us. Public comments on management of BWCAW waters are due by Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW will extend through Feb. 15. Comments, suggestions and other feedback on the management of these, and all other streams and lakes in the area are welcomed at any time and will be considered when those plans are next due for review.

      The first set of replacements I bought from a dealership but they are spendy. I bought some Ancos at Fleet Farm like I have in the past for all my vehicles, but there is no adapter that fits the end of the  blade arm. What are others using?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the city of Willow River will host a public open house on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 to discuss options for the Willow River dam which was severely damaged during a July 2016 rain storm. The open house will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Willow River School located at 8142 Pine Street, Willow River, Minn. Participants can visit displays during the first hour of the open house to learn more about three options currently being considered.  At 7:30 p.m. DNR staff will make a presentation about the features, benefits and cost of each option and answer questions about next steps. The meeting purpose is to receive public input about the options and to answer questions about the state’s process. The dam was built in 1940 as a cooperative venture between the Works Progress Administration and the then Department of Conservation. Heavy rains from a July 2016 thunderstorm overwhelmed the capacity of the dam and caused a significant breach of the north embankment. Options include replacement of the dam to meet current safety standards, removal of the dam, or restoration of the river channel with a series of rock weirs, or rock rapids, to retain water levels but to allow passage of small craft as well as the movement of fish. “We have a rare opportunity to reimagine how this stretch of river might function and look like in the future,” said project manager Jason Boyle. “We look forward to hearing from area residents and moving the project forward.” Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
