      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 .

Missing Brainerd Man's Truck found near Isabella

Recommended Posts

Friday a.m., Brainerd

Thanks to the efforts of the entire staff here in Brainerd, the story became a statewide story on Wed. evening on all major media. Apparently, that result must have lit the flame under the MN Bureau of Criminal Apprehension in St. Paul, as well as local authorities, because beginning Thursday morning this area was buzzing with state and local law enforcement action including in-depth interviews with people like Ryan’s parents, and me.

Ryan made a credit card purchase at about 2 a.m. Saturday morning in Winona, MN, 250 miles south of here and his image is on a security camera at that location. That was new information yesterday. Since he was also seen on the security camera in Rice, MN, 50 miles south of here at 6 am that morning, it is apparent he was headed north at a brisk rate.

Likely as a result of this sudden interest by the authorities yesterday, their in-depth look and the help of media, and our efforts, Ryan’s vehicle was reported Thursday afternoon by a cabin owner in northern Minnesota who reported the truck parked at a neighboring cabin 20 miles from the town of Ely, Minnesota, one of the last stops on the way into the Boundary Waters Canoe area in far Northeastern Minnesota. A man fitting Ryan’s description had been seen on at least one of the days previous, but had not been seen yesterday.

Ryan’s parents and authorities arrived on the scene late last night but Ryan was not found at the cabin, though his keys were in the parked truck. There were signs that he had slept in the cabin, and a bow was found there also. The cabin turns out to be that of a friend of Ryan’s from Brainerd, a hunting buddy, who had no knowledge that Ryan was there.

According to my contact at the BCA, this morning, state and local authorities are searching via helicopter and ground searches in local towns and hamlets near the cabin to try and locate Ryan. They remain concerned about his welfare and are trying to determine if he is in harm’s way. They are hoping for a happy ending.

They did say that they had information they could not release, so have no idea what that might be.

That’s all we know at this time. There are plenty of rumors flying around, but none are confirmed and the information we have given you includes all the facts released to this point.

We have distributed a new poster to sources in northern Minnesota in the last hour. We have removed his truck from the former poster and provided the new information about his last confirmed location

Thanks for your concern.

Yes Ryan has been found and reunited with his parents, though details are sketchy right now. He suffered minor frostbite but otherwise seems okay.

Good to see Ryan was found. Hope he recovers from what ever the reason was for taking off like that.

      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.

      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.

      Most coho being on Minnesota side are 12" - 17".   Occasional bigger fish.  Very few 3# pound fish.

      SM, Nice meeting you today! I am sure we will see each other again! We ended up catching 6 walleyes and 6 tulibees. Kept 3 walleyes from 14" to 19-3/4". We quit at 1:00pm also.
