      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 .

There was this joker last night that torqued me off. We were on our way to the dock at the access and we were floating in and he zipped in full speed and cut us off.

Then we got the boat to the dock and and some old guy was having troubles and the young guy just walked/ran past him and we helped the guy load his boat.

Then we had to help the young guy because he could not back up his truck very well and not load the boat without us.

It was good to help out others but I hate it when people try to "cut" in line.

Yeah, he was just a kid drinking beer with a couple of girls -- one with a micro skirt on, I might add, but he should not have done that.

Do you guys think I should have told him -- do you think he knew and didn't care or is my breath wasted on the youth?

Thoughts?

After helping him out it would have been a good time to mention that what he did wasnt very cool and that someone else might have slapped him up a bit and stole his mini skirt wearing little friend. grin.gif

I am only 25, but i feel like a relic compared to some of the kids 21 and under there seems to be a huge difference in the way I grew up and this younger generation. I always catch myself sayin da*# kids. I would say that at least this kid is in the outdoors, but maybe he just needs some guidance. There is still help for some of them. I just wish the kids now, got to experience dad's belt like I did.

I was young once. But I was raised to respect others.(not that i learned much) but I did not pull crap like that. I had an incident last year when young deliquint in his daddies pro-V tried to swamp me on Pelican. I went and talked to his dad and called the sherriff. His dad was none to happy with his little angel. Some people are just peckerheads.

fisherdog.. I think if that was the case he would have probably puffed his chest to show off to the girls... Hopefully he felt like a big enough shmuck when he couldn't load his boat on his own tongue.gif

Hiya -

It really can be amazing sometime can't it. I've been threatening to pick some sunny Saturday afternoon, take a lawn chair and a cooler full of beers, park on the little grassy knob right next to the East access on Pelican, and just watch the entertainment. I've seen some amazing stuff there - pontoons dumped on their sides, jack-knifed trailers, ski-boats dropped on the concrete, props and lower units thrashed... Seen a few marraiges come apart at the seams there too. One of my favorites was the guy and his kid trying to load a big ski boat by backing the trailer all the way in (back of the trailer was 4' down), then simultaneously pulling the truck forward while driving the boat forward too. Kid in the truck went faster than the dad in the boat, boat was on the back half of the trailer only, kid kept pulling forward and pulled the boat part-way out of the water, then it slid off the trailer. BOOM - onto the ramp. Stove in the bow like you can't believe. Felt a little bit bad for them, but I'd offered to help, and he was offended that I thought he needed it...

As my grandpa used to say often: "200 horse motors, 10 horse brains..." smile.gif

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

RK- good stories...

I got one... Was out fishing 2 years ago on a small lake in sothern otter tail county. This big bass boat was fishing and screaming and fishing and screaming from spot to spot. Just when the sun started to set he took off for shore shooting a rooster tail all the way. 10 minutes later we took off and when we got to the landing the boat was on shore, literally. The guys that had been on shore said that he was still shooting a rooster tail at the end of the dock. There was speckly paint all the way up the concrete slabs. we kind of kept quiet and helped. It took 9 of us and the trailer unhooked from the truck, we would winch and pry winch and pry till we had enough leverage to push her back in the water. Unbeleivable!!!! Then when he got her loaded up he just left... Man was he nervous. He never said a word and thank god that there was nobody else at the landing when it happened.

RK I believe my sister graduated with you...

I'll tell ya one thing -- if somebody needs help I am going to do it regardless if I like them or what they do.

The season we helped those kids is not because we waqnted to get going so we could load our boat. We helped because it was the right thing to do.

Same reason I open the door for people that need a hand, same reasons I help withb cub scouts, t-ball little kid wrestling and other things.

I am NOT blowing my own horn -- it is how I was raised and it is the right thing to do.

What if we call said to heck with doing the right thing and helping out -- where would we be? I think it is a place that rhymes with hair gel.

I am off my soap box -- sorry about the rant I just get P Oed when people (yeah, not just kids) don't have a clue.

After softball and too many beers, er, I mean adult beverages, I get a call from my Dad. He had borrowed my pickup to take the boat out. He did not put the emergency brake on and tried to crank up the boat. When the boat got about half way up the clutch let go and back she went. Did you know a Chevy Luv floats? It got behind the dock and the breeze pushed it in front of the dock before she went down...to just over the hood. I had minnows in between the seat and back cushions. Great thing about it was we got it running again, but every time something broke on it I needed to say no more than the mechanic said it was rusted like it had been in the water or something. For years we joked about getting "Louie's Car Wash" t-shirts made. Dad was the happiest the day I got rid of the old Chevy Luv.

On Green Lake in Spice MN, about 20 years ago when I was skinnier than I was dumb, My dad and I were on one side of the dock;, just tied to the dock, and were about the step out of the boat when the kids on the other side of the dock with some crazy cigar/ski boat took off full throttle and forgot to untie from the dock. Dock kept going, we tipped over and got really wet, dumped out tackle box and poles in the drink before the kid realized what he had done. No one got hurt and it was pretty funny. I had forgot about it till I read the story about the guy who forgot to stop. I did not know a aluminum dock could do that.

Boring 'ol Ottertail guys, LOL grin.gif

The west access on Ottertail can be VERY entertaining. It is right on the river outlet, so there is the added component of a fairly strong current. There is a bridge right below the access with a small dam/water control structure. Screw up, and you are there real quick.

People who do not have their rigs in a good state of tune usually provide the most entertainment. I saw a young fella launch a PWC one time with his girlfriend. They tied it to the dock, then parked their truck/trailer. The hopped on, pushed away from the dock, and it failed to start. They were working really hard to keep out of the bridge/dam. At that point there was not really much I could to to help them. The girl was not at all impressed, grin.gif.

I've seen a couple of boats do this too.

Even a successful launch can provide entertainment here. As you pull away from the ramp, the water is shallow for a good long ways, with a few strategic rocks that can do awful things to props in lower water levels.

Loading can be entertaining here. If you dont have a second person to help, the current can really play havoc with getting on the trailer straight.

I got a real "kick" out reading this post from all of you!

Remember the saying from a Great Fisherman, Bill Dance!

"Take a man fishing and you entertain him for a day, but teach him to fish and you will introduce him to a lifetime of joy".

But, "I think, you got to teach some manners along with that too!" (Mine, came at the end of a leather belt!) That is not really necessary. But we need to teach them how to respect others too. Don't just teach them how to fish,,,, Teach them to respect others,,,,,

Don't be too harsh, they too will learn!

Some, never had a Dad like We did!

But, bring it to their attention, every time you get the chance, and maybe it will take hold!

Good fishin to you all!

      With 59 state forests that cover 4.2 million acres, Minnesota state forests are a great place to view fall color, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Forests with a mix of deciduous and coniferous trees offer a wonderful fall color experience,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “The dark green needles of conifers accent the yellow, orange and red leaves of deciduous trees.” Here are a few routes to consider: Late September Bear Island State Forest From Ely head south on State Highway 1 toward Isabella for about 20 miles. Take a right on New Tomahawk Road toward Babbitt for about 17 miles. Turn right on County Road 21 for 15 miles back to Ely. Kabetogama State Forest From Orr head north on State Highway 53 for 4 miles. Turn right on County Road 180 to head east for 16 miles. Turn right on Forest Road 203 to head east for about 4.5 miles. Turn right on Vermillion Falls road to head east for 8 miles. Turn right on County Road 24/23 and follow to Orr for 26 miles. White Earth State Forest starting at Roy Lake head east on State Highway 200 for 1.5 miles. Turn right on Strawberry Mountain Road to head south for 5 miles. At Norris Trail turn left to head east for 3 miles. Turn left on Height of Land Road to head north back to Highway 200. For a longer loop follow Strawberry Mountain road to State Highway 113. Turn right on State Highway 113 to head east. Turn left on Height of Land Road to head north back to Highway 200. Early to mid-October Croix and Nemadji state forests loop. From I35, take Hinckley exit #183 and head east on State Highway 48 for 19 miles. Turn left to head north on County Road 24 and follow as it curves east and north for 7 miles. Turn right on County Road 25 to head east for 9.5 miles. At Markville, head north on County Road 31 for about 12 miles. Turn left on Park Forest Road/Park Truck Trail to head west for 13 miles. Turn right on County Road 171 to head north for 2 miles. Turn left onto County Road 154/Kerrick Road to head west for 5 miles. At Kerrick, head south on State Highway 23 for 18 miles to I35 exit #195. Richard J. Dorer Memorial Hardwood State Forest From downtown Red Wing head south on Highway 61 for 10.5 miles. At Frontenac take a right onto Country 2 to head east for 9 miles. Take a right onto County Road 3 to head east for 4 miles. Take a right onto State Highway 58 to head north for 1.5 miles. Take a left onto Hay Creek Trail to head north for about 4.5 miles. Hey Creek Trail turns into Twin Bluff Road at Pioneer Trail. Continue on Twin Bluff Road for 1.5 miles and turn left on East Ave to return to downtown Red Wing. Visit www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_forests/fall-colors.html for additional scenic routes and state forest information. Entrance into a state forest is free. State forest campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis for $14 a night.

      Hunter success was just slightly below average the five-year average on three popular waterfowl lakes for the 2017 waterfowl hunting opener in the Grand Rapids area. Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wildlife staff conducted waterfowl bag checks on opening day September 23rd on Big White Oak Lake, Mud Lake (both near Deer River) and Big Rice Lake near Remer. Hunter success in terms of ducks bagged per hunter was 2. The average take the previous five years was 2.2 ducks per hunter. Blue-winged teal, wood ducks and mallard ducks were the most common birds in the bag with blue-winged teal the most commonly bagged bird at all three lakes. Based on vehicle counts at these lakes, hunter numbers were down about 25% from the five-year average. “Hunters had to contend with an early morning thunderstorm which may have kept hunter numbers lower than in previous years. Some hunters delayed going out or decided to try another day because of the rain and lightning from the storm,” said Mark Spoden, acting area wildlife manager. This year’s duck hunting season is 60 days in length. The duck bag limit is six ducks daily and may not include more than any combination of the following: four mallards (two may be hen mallard), three scaup, three wood ducks, one pintail, two redheads, two black ducks, and two canvasbacks. If not listed, up to six ducks of a species may be taken. The daily bag limit for coot and moorhen is 15. The daily bag limit for merganser is five, no more than two of which may be a hooded merganser. More information about waterfowl hunting in Minnesota including weekly waterfowl migration reports can be found at online at www.mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl.

      Thanks Rick, we will be launching out of Long Lake, so Becker may be our best bet.  I assume Schneider is a long haul from Long Lake?  Do you think we should just fish outside weed edges or do you think the fish will still be on the docks?  I'm a bit concerned with the lower temps this week.

      My partner and I will be fishing a 10 boat bass tournament this Sunday (Oct 1st) on the Horseshoe chain.  We have never fished this water, so we are at a loss right now.  Do any of you have any recommendations on what areas to fish, types of lures, etc..  No sure where the fish would be around this time of year, but any advice would be much appreciated!!!  Thanks so much

      New fall hours take effect Oct. 1 Hours for the bison range road at Minneopa State Park will change for the month of October due to decreasing daylight hours. Starting Oct. 1, the range road will be open Thursday through Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The road will be closed on Wednesdays for regular maintenance.  Hiking trails around the bison range provide more bison viewing opportunities. Trails are open daily year round during regular park hours. A vehicle permit ($7 daily or $35 year-round) is required to enter the park. Bison range road hours will be adjusted again to follow daylight hours for the winter. Beginning Nov. 1, winter hours will be 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Minneopa State Park’s bison herd arrived in September 2015 and has been a popular attraction for the park since then. The bison are part of the Minnesota Bison Conservation Herd, managed through a formal agreement between the DNR and Minnesota Zoo. The partners are working together to preserve American plains bison. The plan is to grow the herd to 500 animals at several locations, including Blue Mounds State Park, Minneopa State Park and the Minnesota Zoo. Genetic testing of the herd from 2011 to 2014 found them largely free of any genetic material that would have come from cross-breeding with cattle. Less than 1 percent of all American plains bison tested so far have been found free of cattle genes. Bison viewing tips: Bison may be difficult to spot at times. Visitors should drive slowly and keep a watchful eye as they go through the range. Remain inside vehicle while driving through the bison range. Bison should be given clearance of at least 75 feet from people and vehicles at all times. Dogs can make bison nervous, so pets must be kept on a leash while in the park and hiking around the bison range. Bison get nervous around loud noises or lots of activity, so keeping voices down and movements to a minimum may help keep the bison within easy viewing. Hiking is not allowed inside the range, but there are hiking trails all the way around the outside of the range that can provide some fantastic views of the bison. For information on the Minneopa State Park bison herd, see:  mndnr.gov/minneopa-bison. Resources on bison can be found here:  mndnr.gov/bison. For more information on Minneopa State Park, call 507-389-5464 or visit: mndnr.gov/minneopa. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth, ages 10-15, can participate in a special deer season that runs from Thursday, Oct. 19, to Sunday, Oct. 22, in 28 permit areas of southeastern and northwestern Minnesota, including in the Twin Cities metro permit area 601, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Youth deer season is about putting the youth’s hunting experience first,” said Mike Kurre, DNR mentoring program coordinator. “Many students get a couple days off school for teacher workshops during the youth season so the long break is a great time to plan a hunt that can teach valuable skills and help grow a youth’s interest in the outdoors.” Deer permit areas open to the hunt are: 101, 105, 111, 114, 201, 203, 208, 209, 256, 257, 260, 263, 264, 267, 268, 338, 339, 341, 342, 343, 344 (including Whitewater Game Refuge), 345, 346, 347, 348, 349, 601 and 603. Blaze orange or blaze pink requirements apply to all hunters, trappers and adult mentors in areas open for the youth deer season. Public land is open, and private land is open if the hunters have landowner permission. Youth ages 10 through 15 must obtain a deer license. Youth ages 12 to 15 need to have completed firearms safety or, if not, can obtain an apprentice hunter validation. During the youth season, a parent, guardian or mentor age 18 or older must accompany the youth and only need a license if the youth is taking advantage of the apprentice validation option. Party hunting on a youth license is not allowed – so youth must take and tag their own deer. The bag limit for the youth season is one deer only. Youth may use their regular license or a bonus permit if they take an antlerless deer, regardless of the management designation. Bucks must be tagged with the youth’s regular license. Participation does not affect eligibility for the regular deer season; however, the harvested deer counts against the youth’s annual statewide bag limit and the bag limit for the deer permit area. If hunting in permit areas 346, 348, 349 and 603, the early antlerless only season is in effect from Oct. 19 to Oct. 22, so adults and youth can hunt at the same time in these areas; however, if a youth harvests a deer and wishes to continue hunting during the early antlerless only season they must purchase an early antlerless permit. Youth hunters in permit area 603 must have their deer tested for chronic wasting disease and cannot move the carcass out of the permit area until a negative test result is received. Properly cut-up deer and boned-out meat can be taken out of the area provided no brain matter or spinal column material is attached. Information on proper steps to follow after harvesting a deer in permit area 603 is available on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/cwd/603. CWD testing during the youth season is not required in the other permit areas where mandatory testing will occur on Nov. 4 and 5 during the first two days of the firearms deer season. More information about the youth season can be found on page 34 of the 2017 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook and online at mndnr.gov/regulations/hunting.
