      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 .

Although it was not on forbes top 1,000,000. places to live, I am thinking about building a home in ponsford. Any body know this area, or only is reputation? looking for the truth or positive affirmation on my decision.

Not only on the hunting and fishing but quality of life in the area.

thanks for the help.

I'll second that, pretty much open not much around. I work For White Earth Housing and I do a lot of work in the neighboring village, A lot of punks walking around like gangsters and crap like that. There really isn't too much around.

I guess to me it would depend on exactally were you want to build. I have clients with multi million doller homes and ponsford adress but not near ponsford. They live on a very good fishing lake, with a diverse fish species poluation. Good deer hunting in the area as well. Good Luck with your decision.

I don't think that was an appropriate response to hattrik4me. In case you haven't seen his other post on this forum, two of his labs were just shot and killed and dumped in a ditch by some low life that has nothing better to do than cause trouble. I guess what I am trying to say is that I don't think that I would go around boasting about something like that. There is at least one member of this forum (and a not too distant neighbor to the Ponsford area) that will be without his two best friends from now on because of what you just explained. Maybe before you go shooting domestic dogs you should make (Contact Us Please) sure that they don't belong to someone. Or, if they're not bothering you....just leave them alone and let them go back home. mad.gif

man...if that was suppose to be funny response to hattrk4me’s comment....you are way off base. I will give you the benefit of the doubt and say you didn’t realize his situation. If you got the land, go ahead and build...might as well enjoy it.

eyehunter, before you make your own accusations maybe you should ask him what he meant by it......there are a lot of roamer dogs around there....they cause problems with the neighbors and the neighbors don't take responsibility for them....and law enforcement don't want to hear aboutit....leaves very few options....sometimes nusiuant dogs need to be disposed of. that in no way is a cut down to hattrk4me if his dogs weren't nusiant roamers.....don't jump to conclussions!!!!

sorry if I was insensitive I have also lost a beloved family dog to a trigger happy neighbor. I am not talking about cared for pets. we do have a problem with feral dogs(or just neglected). Almost every time I have hunted my land, I have had a dog walk by or have seen one on my property. I get them on my trail cameras all the time.

Again, sorry if my comments were taken wrong

I guess where to build would be a question only you can answer. Some info to find out would be: is it in a good school district, is it safe, is it a crime free community, will you have trouble selling if you ever need to. Just some things to think about. There's no doubt that it is a great area for fishing and hunting.

Ponsford is not exactly a great setting for family rasing in my opinion. I hunt deer out there every year but it is not a place I would want to live. You have much better option with DL and Park Rapids being near by. You would still be able to go up and hunt as it is only about 30 Miles from DL and Park Rapids. You will have to go to one of these for grocerys and hardware type stuff because there is none of that in Ponsford. As mention by fisherdog you build the house and decided 5 years down the line you want to sell you are going to have a difficult time selling it.

Yep; The lakes are fabulous. Bad Medicine is one of the nicest in the state. I'd say the hunting around the area is as good or better than anywhere in the state. Just go into Two Inlets and watch the bucks that get registered every year. But as far as being back in the woods or on a farm, unless you live there year around, don't even consider building anything of value on your property. It may not be there next time you come up. shocked.gif

Nothing against White Earth Reservation as a whole, I am friends with several people there, but even they will tell you many of the areas social and economic problems occur in the Pinepoint community next door to Ponsford. I'm not speaking about everyone in the entire community, I'm sure there are some very nice people there too. I just want you to know about the issues there if you plan to live next to it. It was told to me by a utility worker that they found over ten stolen cars in one year parked on the sewer lagoon land recently. There is an incredible amount of graffiti and vandalism as well throughout the community, just look at the public buildings.

As far as loose dogs go, my first visit to the community several years ago, my truck was chased down the street by four barking dog (one nursing pitbull female, one shepard, and two large mutts). If you've never been near some communities like this much, then you don't know the meaning of strays, and most of the locals obviously don't know the meaning of a kennel or leash.

This isn't a slam on race and don't take it like that, its just and observation of very local social and crime issues and a semi educated opinion on the neighboring community.

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice! 
    • JMP_37
      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
