      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 am so sick of that attitude i could scream. Well i did one better over the weekend. We had some guys move in on us on Saturday night. On Sunday am they packed up and left about the time we were leaving. Well they left a pile on the lake 8 green gas cyliders, spit cups with spit, food wrapers and all kinds of junk. well i pikced it up and wouldnt you know it they were pulled up to one of our fine resorts. well it took the garbage bags and dumped the crap in the back of thier truck when i noticed the window open a bit well it was unlocked so i put the last one scattered throughtout the front of the truck. We then went in and grabbed a cup of coffee. I told the guy he forgot something on the lake and i put it in the front of his truck. he thanked me and i laughed. well he came out after us and blew a gasket. I am 6'4" and 325 pounds and spent 4yrs in the Marines so i just laughed. He sure was pissed. I made a mess of his truck but did no permanant damage. Guys lets Keep this and every lake clean. call people to task if you see them litter. We have a butiful state lets keep it that way.

I'm not nearly your ample size and have done the same to some slobs in the past. The looks on their face was priceless. No problems, they were speechless that somebody called them on their mess. I will continue to do it whenever the chance presents itself, f--- 'em if the cant take a joke. I have very little patience for this behavior all they need to know is I have their license # and that ends all complaints. Deal with me or the Conservation Officer. By the way, nice job now if we could get more people to think the same way

i like the idea but i would not advise anyone to do what you did. There are some loony people out there and you never know what they may do if you do that to the wrong person. There are things that your size cannot protect against. As I am sure you are well aware of.

Just curious, how old were these guys? I have a theory on litterbugs. I am 56 and when I was young and impressionable they had a great campaign in advertising and on TV. Most of you my age remember it. "Every litter bit hurts" and others. It helped and you saw a reduction in the amount of people tossing their stuff. Now when I see someone unwrap a candy bar and toss the wrapper in a crowd, or throw a big gulp drink cup out there car window I try to see how old they are. Most are young. If you tell them they shouldn't do that they look at you like your'e crazy. Parents have to school their kids in this and other bad habits. Maybe it's just because I am getting older but 3 things have really changed since I was young. Manners in general, cursing in public and littering.

Dont be too quick to blame young people. I am only 21 and respect the rules a lot more than my elder friends. I think everyone needs to clean up garbage even if its not your own. Its easy to blame but hard to help. right.

Being a slob is pretty much an upbringing thing(well most of the time).

I agree that "younger people" will show poor judgement time to time due to lack of experience, but it would be their mentors and parents responsibillity to help get them straight from the start. There were plenty of examples of "older people" demonstrating their poor judgement skills as well. I spent the entire weekend on the lake, along with both of my kids, and they had the opportunity to witness and cleanup some of the "poor judgement" but also were rewarded for their efforts to help keep it clean and prep the way for the next crop of fisherman. I say we all need to lead by example. It says more to stop and pickup that box, can bottle or whatever it is and dispose of it at the next earliest convience than to just blow on buy and (Contact Us Please) about it.

They were in thier 30's. I am mid 40's and i was not the least bit afraid. I knew that they were not the gang banger type with guns. I just did not care i was sooooo PEED OFF at them that i just thought it was time to teach them a lesson. They had left over a full garbage bag full of garbage on the lake. There is no excuse for that.

You are soooo right-glad to hear that you taught them a lesson!!! The same piggish things happen year round-deer hunting people dumping deer bones and hides on your property so that your dog gets into it and gets sick. People throwing their junk in the lake because "they don't live here" and throwing garbage out the window so it ends up in my yard!!! ARGH!!!!

Thank You!!!

Justin

Hey loupesi, I was not trying to say all young people are litterers, merely making the observation on how a generation was affected by an advertising campaign and the erosion of manners in general. Certainly there are exceptions. No intention to offend anyone.

Yup, I'm 43 and most people my age will remember these ad campaigns.

Woodsy the Owl's slogan was:

Give a Hoot, ---'- -------

Also burned into my memory is the image of a native american on horseback with a tear in his eye when he sees a littered area.

Mjen, I am not offended by your comment just simply stating that every "age group" litters, and that its easy to complain about it and blame other people, but harder to acctually help and lead by example. About the upbringing thing, I dont think that how you were raised has anything to do with littering. If your dad, or whoever, does not tell you not to litter when you are young, dont blame him. Its your fault that you are littering. Its simply education. If you know what littering does to the environment and the lakes you fish then lets hope you are smart enough not to do it. Its up to you to learn about this stuff and not for you daddy to teach you. If you dont know than i dont think you should be fishing or hunting.

Yes, it IS about personal responsibility.

However IT IS a Dad's job to teach his children personal responsibility. A lot of problems in today's society are due to dads neglecting that responsibility.

That being said, it's still a poor excuse for an adult who's littering. Yes, there are plenty of other places that he could have/ should have learned along the way that littering is unacceptable.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!  
    • Wanderer
      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!
