      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 .

Hey guys I was driving back from picking my truck up at RJ's yesterday and like a dork I left my keys on my tonnue cover and drove off. I got home and realized what I had done. Drove all the way back to RJ's and found nothing.

Probably came off the truck and someone picked them up.

I took 53 down to the mall and took a right at Perkins and went down over the highbridge.

If anyone finds them let me know. Long shot but worth a try.

Doing the same thing myself. Went golfing with a buddy, went to Lake elmo Inn after for a drink and watch the wild. After the game went to leave... keys are gone. Searched the bartenders garbage, the dishwashers garbage, the linin basket, everywhere... just gone. Frustrating.

Only good news, I discovered my hidden key was gone too, I'd rather find that out, when I'm 15 minutes from home, then when I'm at the end of the gunflint trail and 60 minutes from the nearest locksmith.

I once walked a ditch for 100 yards picking up text books, a calculator, a check book, a briefcase, credit cards...

The guy left everything on top of his trunk and drove off...

I'd look by wherever your first turn was... the first time you turned right or left, it would've slid off.

I don't know about that, I had a 3/4 full can of Coke make the 22 mile trip to work in city traffic sitting on the back bumper of my truck. Good luck finding them Steve, you never know when or where they might show up, a lot of weird things happen in this world.

Ya like when my H2O slid out of the Ram holder and bounced into my splashwell just under the cables/hoses. Got home and lot I had lost it in the road someplace. Drove all over looking. No luck. Got home and looked all over the boat 2 or 3 times. Nothing. Went back later and checked again and there it was under the transom splashwell cables etc. Had been there all along but was so Pissed at myself I looked right around it.

Now I put a big rubber band around it when its in the Ram holder.

I had a pair of work gloves on my rear bumper that made it from the family cabin at Lake Vermillon all the back to my place in Duluth. Then they fell off as I pulled into a parking space. I just don't understand why some things stay and others just can't. blush.gif

With this story and knowing the keys were on the tonnue cover have you looked between the cab and box to see if the may have slide forward? Might be laying on the fuel tank or something. Just a thought.

Could try putting an almost exact key setup, in the almost exact place, and drive almost the exact route, in almost the exact same way...and lose another set in the same place...hopefully find them both... if someone is watching in the truck... or driving behind! grin.gif

This method has occasionally worked for "someone", for lost items...almost. blush.gif

: ) I found the set I mysteriously lost at the lake elmo inn.

I had been golfing, went to LEI for an appetizer and watch the wild playoff game... got done eating... no keys. Not on the bar, not in the truck, not in the bartenders garbage, not at the cashiers counter, manager didn't have em, not in the dishwashers garbage... no where.

Went golfing yesterday. Opened the bag to get my balls and tees, out pops my keys.

When I got out of the truck at the restaurant, I must have had some tees or something in my pocket, and when i stuck em in the bag, I must have inadvertantly put my keys in there too.

Feel pretty stupid now. We musta spent an hour or better trying to find those things. FOBs are expensive.

Northlander.

Just a thought on finding your keys. If you lost them before the bridge, you might check with the Adopt a Highway groups working those sections of road. Mn/(Contact Us Please) has also swept the bridge and maybe Piedmont Ave. and your keys may be where they dump the sweepings. Could be a lot of digging however. Also a question. Was there any colored bobble attached to them. Something that might attract attention to someone driving slow?

I'm sure they'll turn up Steve, but I'll entertain you with my own lost keys story. I get called out one morning for a high speed chase coming my way. Throw on jeans, tshirt, vest, handgun and cuffs in the waistband, grab the keys and jump in the squad. Just as I'm getting the stop sticks out, the chase goes by me. The pursuit ended just this side of Bena. I get back to town and SOB where's my keys? I look everywhere and nothing. About a month later, a couple other officers and I are out fishing and the one says, some guy at my wife's work just gave her a set of keys and they look like "cop keys". I couldn't believe it, but sure enough they were my keys. He found them along Hwy 2 where the pursuit had ended. It took some bending with the pliers and channel locks, but they were good as new. They'll turn up!

You and Tom should plan a day to get up here and hit Winnie or Bowstring with me towards the end of May!

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!

      Any where from 12' to 30' humps. Bass and a few walleyes setting up on top and sides of these humps. Cliff

      Duck hunting is expected to be good when Minnesota’s regular waterfowl season opens a half-hour before sunrise on Saturday, Sept. 23. “The number of breeding ducks in Minnesota and North America has been good in recent years, so we’re optimistic that will result in a good duck season,” said Steve Cordts, waterfowl specialist with the Department of Natural Resources. “Wetland habitat conditions and wild rice lakes are in pretty good shape.  Canada goose populations remain high as well, so there’s lots of opportunity to hunt geese this fall.” Duck seasons and limits
      The duck season structure is similar to recent years. The waterfowl seasons are based on a federal framework that applies to all states in the Mississippi Flyway. Waterfowl hunting regulations are available wherever DNR licenses are sold and online at mndnr.gov/regulations/hunting. Duck season will be open for 60 days in each of the three waterfowl zones: In the north zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Tuesday, Nov. 21. In the central zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 1, closes for five days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 7, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 26. In the south zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Oct. 1, closes for 12 days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 14, and runs through Sunday, Dec. 3. The daily duck bag limit remains six per day. The mallard bag limit remains four per day, including no more than two hen mallards. The daily bag limits are three for wood duck and scaup; and two for redheads, canvasbacks and black ducks and one for pintails. The DNR will post a weekly waterfowl migration report each week during the duck season. The reports are typically posted on Thursday afternoon at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl. Goose and sandhill crane seasons
      Minnesota’s goose season will reopen in conjunction with the duck season statewide on Sept. 23, with a bag limit of three dark geese per day the entire season. “Dark” geese include Canada geese, white-fronted geese and brant. The daily bag limit for light geese is 20. “Light geese” include snow, blue and Ross’s geese.  Goose season will be closed in the central and south duck zones when duck season is closed. The season for sandhill cranes remains open through Sunday, Oct. 22 in the northwest goose and sandhill crane zone only. The daily bag limit will be one sandhill crane per day. A $3 sandhill crane permit is required in addition to a small game hunting license. More information on duck, goose, sandhill crane and other migratory bird hunting is available in the 2017 Minnesota Waterfowl Hunting Regulations booklet from license vendors and online at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl.

      Citizens interested in volunteering to discuss Lake of the Woods fish and habitat can apply to participate in the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Applications must be completed by Monday, Oct. 10, and are available online at mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. “Input provided by this group will be used to update the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan for 2018 to 2023,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette area fisheries supervisor. “Volunteers will give valuable stakeholder perspectives regarding important fisheries and habitat protection strategies for Lake of the Woods and the surrounding watershed,” Talmage said. Group members will meet five or six times between December and May to cover topics including walleye and sauger management, sportfish population objectives, habitat priorities and invasive species. Talmage said protecting the high quality resources within Lake of the Woods is important. “While walleye in Lake of the Woods are a big focus of the DNR’s management efforts, the lake also offers a wide range of fishing and other recreational opportunities that are vital to local communities, important to northern Minnesota and of significant value statewide,” Talmage said. For additional information on the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group and the self-nomination process, contact the DNR Baudette area fisheries office, 218-634-2522.

      Frozen mid-step in the woods, trying to remain undetected in pursuit of squirrels or rabbits – while the pose may seem like yoga, it’s often part of hunting small game. Yet those careful and deliberate movements of yoga do have some parallels with how a hunter learns to move through the woods, and teaching the basics through small game hunting is the focus of Take a Kid Hunting Weekend this Saturday, Sept. 23, and Sunday, Sept. 24. During the weekend, adult Minnesota residents accompanied by a youth younger than age 16 can hunt small game without a license, but must comply with open seasons, limits and other regulations, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “Small game hunting is an excellent way to introduce youth to hunting,” said Mike Kurre, DNR mentoring program coordinator. “Starting out pursuing squirrels or rabbits builds essential skills used later on for hunting big game like deer. And for someone new to hunting, it can be a lot of fun.” Adults can help youth have a good experience by listening to what youth need, and together they can learn the lessons of the forests and fields, added Kurre. “We encourage adults to keep on mentoring young hunters after this weekend concludes, because often that’s what will keep them going back year after year,” Kurre said.

      Recreational netting for whitefish-tullibee opens on Friday, Oct. 13, on designated lakes that are less susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperature, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. A $10 license is needed to sport gillnet tullibee or whitefish. The season is open to Minnesota residents only. These lakes, known as Schedule II lakes, offer recreational netting on the following schedule: Schedule II A lakes open Friday, Oct. 13, and close Sunday, Dec. 3. Schedule II B lakes open Friday, Nov. 3, and close Sunday, Dec. 10. Schedule II C lakes open Friday, Nov. 10, and close Sunday, Dec. 10. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to factors that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. The DNR recommends drying nets for 10 days or freezing for two days before moving a net to a new lake, or netting only one lake in a season. Netting in infested waters may be restricted or closed to sport netting of whitefish and tullibee. See the fishing regulations for list of infested waters or online at mndnr.gov/invasives/ais/infested.html. A complete list of all Schedule I and II lakes, status of the seasonal openings and closures, as well as detailed netting regulations are available online at mndnr.gov/regulations/fishing or by calling the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 in the Twin Cities or 888-646-6367 in greater Minnesota. About 700 people obtain permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning. Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Minnesota law restricts the size of the net and its openings; requires that netting be done in water not deeper than 6 feet unless specifically authorized; stipulates that netted fish cannot be sold; and requires that any game fish caught must be immediately returned to the lake. State law also limits net size to 100 feet long and 3 feet deep; allows one person to use no more than one net; and forbids recreational netters from possessing angling equipment when netting whitefish-tullibee. Whitefish and tullibee harvested during the sport gillnetting season cannot be used for bait. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
