      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 .

Crappie Keith.

Do you have a job or are you a professional crappie fisherman.? Do you have a magazine?

Were you just born last month because I have never seen you here before and there can't be to many crappies left in the lakes up there that don't have a hole in there mouth. And suddenly you have taken over the local scene on here.

How many fish can you eat in one week.? Do you like tartar sauce.? So many questions. So much fishing to do.

Thanks. grin.gif

Siss has got some dandy eyes in her.

The gills are not bad either.

Too bad the creek weeded over going into 10.The 70's were awesome for fishing.

10 had some of the nicest p'seeds you ever saw.

Hey Crappie Todd

here's a taste of how the winter went.

My name, Crappie Todd came from a Guy named, Dave Gentz. I date it back in the about 1985. It was about the time Dave became popular with Babe winkleman. No longer a team they used to fish Gun lake. Most people know Dave, his name is all over the state in the winter time. Also I fished Lake Hattie at Tuck A way resort and was in the beginning and rapid end to a magazine named "pan Anglers news.... I still have copies of it. I wrote beiefly.

I fish crappies 85 % of the time and gills 14 % and snag a walleye accidentally now and then @ 1%.

I eat a few and stronly believe in catch and release because the lake I am on...... I have been blamed for its down fall. So, I have an attitude towards the DNR thinking I am one man lake ruining crew.

Walleys are my weakness.... I posted looking for Bull heads. You must have seen it.

No one responded. I deleted it.

Mabey we will bump in to each other some time.

He sure has done a lot of stuff over there to make a world class place.

Back to fishing.

Going out in the predawn time to Round then after daybreak to Sqaug until 11.Then RJ Fritz,MeanGene O. and my boss plus Mallard to my monster gill holefor a noon run.Then back to those eyes at dusk to 11 pm.

I was thinking the same thing.

There are those that love the pics I'll post up or possibly glean some trick or method I'm using.

Others assume I'm taking all of these fish home to eat

and they want it to be known that I should stop.

I've seen the whole gammet of responses.

I'm just a humble fisherman ,promoting fishing.

It is and always has been my goal to get guys excited about fishing.

Teaching others to fish or to become better at what I call my main passion in life.

If you want to see something really cool there is this 8 year old kid that comes from a broken home that I've helped to get into fishing and now he's tying his own jigs.

It's so cool to run into him & hear his stories of fishing .

He gets so pumped.

I believe that's why God put us earth to help & uplift others.

On the other hand if you want to go out fishing in a lake that's producing I'll share it with you.

I spend near 200 days a year on the water & or ice just to keep the pulse of the fish.What I do ,I could get 300$ a day in guide fees ,but for the most part it's all free.

I've made a ton of friendships this last year doing this & I'll continue to have a blast rearing.

So in conclusion being apart of a forum in FM is important to me.

Helping others grow,promoting our industry and reaveling in what mother nature has to offer all of us!

I see nothing wrong with these pics. I have seen hundreds just like them posted all over this forum.

Can you please elaborate about what portion of forum policy this violates? I just reread the policy and find nothing wrong with them.

it might be the pics that have some fish laying on the ice? I think I've read something about that in the forum pic rules but cant remember.

You'll hear no bashing from me! keep up the good work.

What a strange frickin' post. CT - do you have a point to make here?


Actully I guess I can say Yes to that. Your on every posting for the area there with about the same pics. You have so many pics I have trouble looking at the posts because I have dial up and can't even use the forum to simply look at it. Down load time might as well be nap time.

It great you have pics of you with your fish. But whats your point posting em every single available forum there.

If you continue to post where I can't use the forum to look at other responses in words, than I will just shut up and go away.

Its not about anything more than that.

What ever happened to asking nicely?

I have dial up as well and have no problem looking at the pics.

If you can't read any forums that contain pictures then are you going to ask eveyone who posts pics to stop so that you can read all the forums easier?

Also if you check out the Mille Lacs forum at all there is a thread there titles Mille Lacs Pictures. There are pictures of perch sitting on a cutting board next to a filet knife. If those pics are ok then I am sure these will be just fine.

Keep on keepin' on CK.

We're looking for fish pictures in good taste that encourage selective harvest principles so the dead fish rule is as follows: Fish pictures must be in the natural environment where the fish is caught that do not look frozen, stiff, bloodied or look like they were just poured out of a bucket and no stringer or fish in a bucket pics. Fish Mount and live release tournament pictures are ok as well. All other dead fish pictures are not allowed.

      Someone let the cat out of the bag on my favorite reels. I love just how light they are but I only go down to two pound test. I thumb the reel to act as my drag. Only use when it is shallow enough to hand over hand.

      What got me hooked on musky fishing when I was a kid was topwater. Nothing more exciting than watching the water explode. My first musky came on a rubber frog while bass fishing, my little brother casted over my line and as I lectured him and reeled my line up as quick as I could, WHAM. Since then I have had some of my best memories from topwater. Poe's giant jackpot, prop baits, creepers, klack/buzz bait. He's going to spend a lot of time casting, giving him something to watch helps pass the time and when he gets follows they will normally be shallow so he will be able to see them.

      Thanks for the reports guys. It will be after New years before I get up in the area to try some fishing. I made a deal with my wife that I can't die ice fishing, before Christmas!

      I have $50 to spend on Musky lures for a 14 year old boy.  Last fall he caught a nice musky, from my kayak, and was unable to land it to get a picture.  He did get it up to the kayak several times so he got a good look at it and has been bit by the Musky Fishing Bug.  I am looking for suggestions for the young man and was hoping to get some help here.

      Last year I rented a house through Hunter Winfield's Resort in Isle.  I looked around at many options and they seemed to have what I was looking for.  Their wheel-houses are very nice and have everything you list above.  Bathroom, TV/DVD, electricity (didn't have to fill the generator once), stove/oven.  I reserved an 8' x 16', but they upgraded me to an 8x20' - nice surprise.  Real nice, and plenty of room for two adults and 2 kids.   I had so much fun I'm going back in January.

      Buddy had a camera down on Saturday and he said he'd get a mixture of panfish to come in then they'd fly out of the hole and in comes a pike or two.  He said that when the gills would leave it was because a pike would be around the hole and he knew it was safe again when he'd see his first panfish.  That was in 18-22 fow.

      No chronic wasting disease was detected in more than 11,000 precautionary samples from deer that hunters harvested this fall in north-central, central and southeastern Minnesota, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  “This is good news for Minnesota,” said Lou Cornicelli, wildlife research manager for the DNR. “The results lend confidence that the disease is not spread across the landscape.” In all, 7,813 deer were tested in the north-central area, 2,529 in the central area and 1,149 in the southeastern area outside deer permit area 603, the CWD management zone. Researchers still are submitting samples from cooperating taxidermists so final results will updated online at mndnr.gov/cwdcheck as they become available. Given no deer with CWD were found in north-central and central Minnesota, the DNR will narrow surveillance next fall to areas closer to the farms where CWD was detected. A fourth precautionary surveillance area will be added in fall 2018 in Winona County because CWD recently was detected in captive deer there. Precautionary testing in north-central and central Minnesota became necessary after CWD was found in multiple captive deer on farms near Merrifield in Crow Wing County and Litchfield in Meeker County. It also was conducted in the deer permit areas directly adjacent to southeast Minnesota’s deer permit area 603, the only place in Minnesota where CWD is known to exist in wild deer. Minnesota’s CWD response plan calls for testing of wild deer after the disease is detected in either domestic or wild deer. All results from three consecutive years of testing must report CWD as not detected before DNR stops looking for the disease. Three years of testing are necessary because CWD incubates in deer slowly. They can be exposed for as long as 18 months before laboratory tests of lymph node samples can detect the disease. Proactive surveillance and precautionary testing for CWD is a proven strategy that allows the DNR to manage the disease by finding it early and reacting quickly and aggressively to control it. These actions, which were taken in 2005 to successfully combat bovine tuberculosis in northwestern Minnesota deer and in 2010 to eliminate a CWD infection in wild deer near Pine Island, provide the best opportunity to eliminate disease spread. Precautionary testing is necessary to detect the disease early. Without early detection, there’s nothing to stop CWD from becoming established at a relatively high prevalence and across a large geographic area. At that point, there is no known way to control the disease. “Overall, hunter cooperation and public support has been tremendous,” Cornicelli said. “While there are always challenges when you conduct this type of surveillance effort, it really couldn’t have been successful without the cooperation of hunters, taxidermists, landowners and the businesses that allowed us to operate check stations.” Complete information about CWD and DNR efforts to keep Minnesota deer healthy are available on the DNR website at mndnr.gov/cwd.
