      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

it is an upbringing thing, if I did that as a kid I would have got it, and if mine do it they WILL get it.

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.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      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.

      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.
