      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 .

It sounds like it will be a couple of months yet.

The MN Historical Society gave a big thumbs up to listing on the historic register. The last stop is at the federal level, where like Cliff said, it will be a couple of months.

Historical register?! How about a public eyesore instead.?

Take a beautiful wilderness bay and add about a 100 run down multi colored boat "shacks" and what do you get? Well if you have a lot of money and a good lawyer, you get it listed in the Historical register.

In my opinion they should either be cleaned up to fit better into there surroundings or be removed all together. If anyone else on the lake had their boathouse in such a state of disrepair, it would be condemned and would have to be removed.

If the people that own these shacks, feel they have such an historical importance to the area perhaps they should maintain them. Instead they have allowed a large number of them to fall into total disrepair and destroy the natural beauty of Stuntz bay.

This is a total sham, either fix them or tear it all down, but please don't tell me how historical it all is. They get bought and sold all the time and that's all this is about "MONEY"!

Gee Terry, why don't you give us your opinion.

The Stuntz bay association has tried for years to get the owners of the houses in disrepair to clean them up.

While I agree that some of the boathouses are in need of major work, your comments about it all being about money is way off the mark.

Why don't you educate yourself some more about it and go to the Stuntz bay association meeting. Maybe you'll find out what it is all about.

I am right there with Ace. I share his opinion. Either fix them or tear them down. To declare these eyesores as historical landmarks seems laughable. From a persons perspective who does not have a vested interest in the boathouses, it would appear that the only reason the houses in major disrepair are still standing is so they can be sold. Fixing them would require capital and cut into profits. Once you tear them down you lose your investment.

The boathouses per current lease situation with the DNR, cannot be sold.

The ones that are in disrepair are so due in large part to:

1. The current leaseholder does not use it, does not want to take care of it.

2. The leaseholder/owner is deceased and lease has transferred to the DNR.

Trust me if they could be sold, they would be. Plenty of market out there for it.

Also, the current DNR lease situation puts very restrictive limits on what the leaseholder can do to improve the boathouse. Listing on the historic register would eventually change that and allow preservation - improvements - just what you guys want.

I don't wish to start an argument over the issue however, if you think they aren't being sold, you are just being nieve. You may not see them in the paper that you read however, they are in the News the Timber Jay and the Ely Echo every summer. In fact, they are sold along with island cabins all the time. Are these folks circumventing the law

or are they just using handy loop holes?

I'm not asking you to improve them, I'd be much happier if they just maintained them. Repairs to a damaged structure are hardly improvements they are "Maintainence". Hang a new door, replace the rotten timbers so it isn't hanging into the water and maybe paint the thing all one color.

The DNR has those restrictions because they don't want them there either. They are a blight on our public shoreline, it's a state park for heaven sake, it doesn't belong to the Stuntz bay Assc.

My clients from out state, can't believe that we allow such an eyesore to exsist on this beautiful lake. And now they want us to accept that shanty town as an Historical site, perhaps histerical is a better word for it.

Why should I have have to subsidize them with my taxes. I have a old house on the lake, however it is actually maintained by the owner, perhaps I should mess it up a bit and see if I can have it declared an Hisorical site. What a joke!!

I don't think you'll want me at one of the Stuntz bay association meetings, do they even allow any non memebers to attend, much less to speak their piece??

Well Terry, from the very first line ya wrote on this subject you started an argument.

That notwithstanding, it appears that your opinion about the mere existence of the boathouses differs from mine. For several reasons, I'd suspect. Good luck with that, and we'll see what happens.

Actually, I simply offered my opinion on a public issue which we all have a right to do. I guess we will just have to agree to disagree on this issue without making it something personal. Just an FYI from me to you, I'm not the only local that feels this way about this issue.

Is the ice gone yet??? No Ace, go back to sleep.

Agreed, and I am offering mine, nothing personal.

You know the saying, "One man's trash is another man's treasure"

I am sure that there are others that see it from your perspective, just as there are those who see it from my perspective. Whether they are local or not.

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
