      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 .

Announcement - Second Annual Wetlands Summit

Second Annual Wetlands Summit

Normandale Community College

Bloomington, Minnesota

February 3, 2007

8:00 AM to 5:30 PM

THEME: Cultivating a Minnesota Land Ethic

This second annual Wetlands Summit, as was its predecessor, is an outgrowth of the Rally for Ducks, Wetlands and Clean Water held on two occasions on the State Capitol grounds in April of 2005 and 2006. The Rally called for holding a Wetlands Summit to review current programs and problems, identify corrective measures needed, and to help establish a common ground between the wetland conservation and agricultural communities.

In keeping with this directive, the Summit Organizational Committee advances this revised Mission Statement:

Minnesota’s second Wetlands Summit recognizes the importance of a sustainable land ethic in achieving a sound balance between agricultural programs and the vitality of wetlands, clean water and suitable habitat for fish and wildlife. It also recognizes the probability that profound climate change may irreversibly alter the lands and waters that sustain us all. The 2007 Summit will review accomplishments of the past year, identify common ground for the agricultural and conservation communities, review the scope of the 2007 Farm Bill and provide recommendations, present an overview on climate change and its potential impacts, and encourage individuals and organizations to work collectively to achieve changes desired.

The morning session will provide a summary of accomplishments since the 2006 Summit, ponder whether a conservation based land ethic is achievable, review key issues in the 2007 Farm Bill and provide for open discussion. The luncheon speaker will address climate change and its potential effect on agriculture, fish and wildlife habitat and water quality/quantity. The afternoon session will be devoted to an interactive Farm Bill Forum, and culminate in recommendations for collective and individual action, recognizing that a united front by agricultural and conservation interests is an absolute requirement for success.

The Summit is a cooperative effort sponsored by the Izaak Walton League of America, National Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, Audubon Minnesota, Minnesota Waterfowl Association, Ducks Unlimited, Minnesota, Outdoor Heritage Alliance, Fish and Wildlife Legislative Alliance, Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy, Sierra Club, Land Stewardship Project, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

There will be a registration fee of $25.00 per person, with a reduced fee of $l5.00 for certified students. The fee will include a continental breakfast, morning and afternoon refreshments and a noon lunch in the College cafeteria. Free parking is available. Please return the attached Registration Form with payment to the Minnesota Division IWLA. Please note the new address on the form. Call 651-221-0215 or ikes@minnesotaikes.org for further assistance. Pre-registration is advised.

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.
