      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 .

Usually you can go into the court house and/or Department of Agriculture or even NRCS might. They should be about 20 bucks area.

Farm & Home Publishers out of Belmond, IA sends one out every year to landowners for free. If you have to purchase one from them it looks like they're $40. I've got a Clay county book from 2005 that you can have for nothing if you want it.

I bought plat books online from the Minnesota Bookstore in St. Paul.

I find that the plat books are not kept up to date very well. My parents moved from Clay to Becker county about 5 years ago and the finally got them out of the Clay county plat book this year. If you are just looking for land owner names for hunting, fishing, ect. you can just go to the respective county's web site and navigate to the GIS department of the county and from there you should be able to view maps of the whole county and find out who the land owners are for each parcel of land in the county. These are public files and the information that you will find are the tax rolls for the county and they keep them updated fairly well, Clay County especially, whether it be change of ownership on a parcel, or parcel splits. These interactive maps also have aerial photos that you can toggle on and off so that you can see where you are at. Not all counties have this set up on their web sites, but I know for a fact that Clay and Becker both have a GIS department and have this on their web sites. I use GIS almost every day in my line of work, so if you have a questions let me know and maybe I can try and help you further.

How do you get into the County website for Becker to access the maps and landowners? I tried to find it but never got into what I was looking for.

Slick -- They are for sale at the Hawley Newspaper office. The cost is $19. Might be closer than running to the courthouse.

Hitman, the information is free on the internet. Sorry, I don't mean to take business away from your paper.

Go to Becker County's web site (google it if you don't know the address). On the left hand side of their home page select "Departments", when that page loads look on the left again and you will see "GIS Maps", select it and when that page loads slect "Parcel Information". This should take you to a new window and display a map that you can zoom in and out on and slect whichever parcel you want. Once you pick a parcel, it should show the owners name at the bottom of the page, if you click the owners name it should pop up all the information about that particular piece of land. To include the owner and their address.

I really wouldn't put too much stock in those Plat books, they are really not that accurate. Getting the information Direct from the County is much more up to date. Granted if the piece of land has just been sold in the past week or two, it may not reflect those changes, but it will in a lot less time than the plat book will.

BTW, the Clay County site is much the same, Departments, GIS,Parcel information. The maps on the two sites look and operate exactly the same.

Hope this helps.

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
