      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 .

I went to check my trail-cam this evening and somebody stole my trophy-rock frown.gif. I have a pretty good picture of the guy but have no idea who it is. Just want some input on what I should do it was on private property. I know it's only fifteen dollars but thats beside the point, It was getting hit hard by the deer.

You have a picture of a person who stole private property from private property and are wondering what to do?

Go to the local diner and co-op. Show the picture around and ask if anyone knows who it is. Ask the neighboring property owners, could be someone who thinks they own your land. Go to the local watering hole in the early afternoon and ask some of the regulars too, someone will recognize this fool. Yep, it is only a mineral block but next time it will be you stands or trail camera's......

once you find out who it is, I would take the pictures to the sherrif's department. File theft and tresspassing charges.

I would go balistic but there is no signs saying no trespassing. I'm going to ask my landlord if he knows him, because there is other people that hunt the land but I don't think they would touch it knowing what it does for the deer. Even if it was the neighbor why would he take it thats what I don't understand confused.gif.

There doesn't need to be no trespassing signs posted, it is private property. Some people feel that the best way to save the animals in the forest is to mess with hunters stuff. who ever took it knew what it was, and what it was for. Ask the landowner and the neighbors

It could be a misguided person who thinks it's illegal & they were going to take care of that.

I think you deserve to find the guy and ask him. Every single person on this site has had something stolen from that at some point in their lifetime and getting a chance like you have is a golden opportunity. I had my car broken into, I realize that's a whole different ballgame than a mineral block, but what I would have given for a picture of the culprit. I'm not saying you should bust one of his kneecaps or something, but go find him like somebody said, ask around, and then see what he says. Chances are his conscience will give him up. Watch his facial reactions. You'll know what he was doing and if he's lying.

Before you go off the deep end it is not your property and go talk to the landlord. Did you tell the owner that you planed to use his property all year long and intended on baiting deer to his land? From what you posted it doesn't sound like you are leasing all the land and it could be possible that other people may have jumped in on your free hunting area and leased it for there own use. It is also common for land to be sold to the renter before it is offered on a public level. With that being said you may be tresspassing on someones property. I've grown up in the same area and know that most of the area land is run by just a few farmers. Most land owners are so over burdoned with citiots tresspassing that they have givin up all hope of just letting a few select people use their land. It seems that if one guy asked for permission for one day, 5 years ago, they assume that it you gave them permission for them and all their friends for the rest of thier lives. I think a chat with the owner may be best and tell him you are planing to put a block out. If all is fine with him go to Brose's and get a cut, good chance he will know who it is. smile.gif

I did ask and get permission from the owner and also asked if they new the guy in the picture. So far nobody knows who it is so the investigation goes on. I'm kinda leary about putting another rock or mineral block out there. confused.gif

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
