      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 .

More Courtesy (Fish Etiquett) on Boulder Lake Please!

Recommended Posts

I was fishing the evening on Boulder Lake. I got there after 3:30 set up away from people, but in a spot I was confident there would be fish. I was setup and fishing by 4:00 as most of you know that fish this lake it can be very slow up to dark. I poke around and get ready for the evening bit. At around 5:05 or there after My graph came alive and soon after I landed my first fish. Now I was thinking this is still early, but was ready for next bit time went by and Now it was 5:30 sun down or nearly down. Hear come some yak drives up almost 15 yards from my fish house and looks at me. I look and then just sat down cuz my graph was comming alive again. Then he starts driving(I'm think wee) then he stops even closer yet, gets out and ask if it ok to set up where he had been last week. I grumbled and said I suppose just setup up quick. I sat down a caught my second fish and that was it. It took him 15 minutes to drill 4 holes by then it was 6:00. I was pissed. I hope people will get out there sooner then 5:30 or don't set up next to me. Anyway thats my rant. Just asking for more Courtsey people

When someone pulls to close to me in the summer I just drop my pants and fish in my lucky purple g-string. You would be surprised how fast people move away. I have not tried this approach in the winter.

I was going to start drilling holes when I left, but I tried to be the bigger man. I ended up with three nice crappies and 1 - 12"

The ice is just fine. Just stay on the road and there will be no problem. There is areas in the middle by the dam that get so shallow that its squezzs the water and thats the reason for open water.

I don't understand why this crowding thing would happen on any lake larger than a muddle puddle. I try to make it a rule, NEVER to park within 100 yards (hopefully more) of anyone (unless I know them and it's a plan).

If you think about it, fish are just about everywhere in a lake. Wouldn't people rather have their "own" area and privacy anyway? I know I would.....Like they say,...nothing draws a crowd like a crowd (even if the fish aren't biting) smile.gif.

According to my record, Just dont follow me out..... smirk.gif

P.S. I like Yukon's idea!

Maybe the same guy that drove by me last time I was out there. Literally five yards away from me and just stared me down, like I did something wrong. He was probably looking for fish so he could set up there, but luckily I didn't have any at the time...Some people just need to figure out how to get a life! It's only a fish, and that is why they call it fishing, there is no such thing as your "spot" on the lake that no one can fish. And if people are out there just to catch a limit everytime, to heck with them...that's not what fishing is all about(though it is nice to catch fish)...

I was out on Wild Rice sunday and had two cars drive right on top of me..oen guy came two feet from crushing one of my tip ups, I had friends up from the cities and it is too bad because they are all now convinced that people up here are all jerks..stinks how a couple people can ruin someone's perception of a bunch of good people..anyway..keep a safe distance away from other anglers if at all possible..happy fishing

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      I'll be ok, as long as I got my daily HSO therapy!

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      if it ever comes down to those 2 choices for you, do the eye thing. Cant fish with you if yer dead.

      Looks like Big Bay is still open, so I don't think I'll be ice fishing Thanksgiving Day weekend.  I'm guessing the Big Bay will freeze this Sunday or Tuesday.  Lake should be walkable by December 2 when I plan to go up.

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.
