      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 .

Opening weekend sounds

Recommended Posts

Bobby Bass

Lake Iwanttobethere sounds,

Zipper opening on the tent in the middle of the night because someone has to go.

Snoring from the guy in the tent two sites down.

The call of a loon at dusk.

The drumming of a grouse at noon.

Cooling of a dove at dawn.

The distant call of a crow.

Crackling of a fire.

Bubbling of the outboard idling at the dock.

Beep of a graph being turned on.

Clicking of a reel.

Screaming of a drag ( my favorite)

Waves lapping against the side of a boat.

Rod bouncing off the gunwale.

Crushing of a chip bag.

Gurgle of the truck exhaust in the water.

Louder clicking of a winch.

Plop of a bobber hitting the water.

Clearing your throat and have it echo back at you.

Laughter from the other side of the lake.

Your heart when you have your first fish of the day.

The contented sigh of finally getting on the water!

The sound the sun makes when it enters the water at the end of the day

A Bullfrog

A Peeper

A Blue Herons cry when it has to fly.

The boom of the pizza cannon.

Honks of a flight of geese.

A barking dog on a dock.

A splash.

The slurp of a bass on top.

Snapping of sunfish feeding.

The painful sound of a jet ski.

Flapping of flag.

The cycle of a water pump.

Flip flops on a dock.

I heard these all on opening weekend, how about you?

I heard the drunk guys down the shore around their campfire at 3 in the morning yelling/screaming/swearing etc. I guess it's payback for all the crap I put the lake through in my younger days... grin.gif

You will have to go to the Outdoor discussion forum and read the fishing report for Lake Iwanttobethere. The Pizza cannon is used at Del's Pizza and Sub shop.

I got to hear not one but two speedboats with waterskiiers/tubers flying by me at aboot 10 feet on a 148 acre lake. Now who in there right mind would even bother to bring their speedboat to a 148 acre lake to go tubing/waterskiing when there are several larger lakes within 5 miles?

White-caps slamming into the front of the boat...

RAIN like a cow P'ing on a flat rock

Our "lake neighbor's" pug, purring. I did not know that any dogs purred!

The gentle hiss of a hen mallard sitting a nest

Kids screaming with delight in the cold cold water. And screaming, and screaming, and screaming... smile.gif

Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Weed Shark

Laughter from four friends, together for the 25th year.

A buzzing, massive cloud of fish flies.

A jack-hammering Pileated Woodpecker.

The thudding of a six pound dogfish in the boat.

Wailing loons at dusk on the lake.

The Ker-plunks of released large Bluegills.

Pelting of rain on my rain-gear, driving 30 mph across lake.

Thumping of Crappies and Walleyes on the cleaning board.

The whap, whap of my friends engine cylinder...half-way home.

2 guys in the front of my boat sing without a radio (that was terrible).

Did you tie the minnow bucket to the boat? (minnow bucket was floating)

Bobber's down, set the hook. (Bobber back up and floating because someone burnt the line with a cigarette)

- The chorus of barking spiders that only seemed to begin once we were all in the RV and the doors and windows were shut...

- The violent WHACK of boat hulls slapping Mille Lacs rollers...

- The cry of "down, down - DOWN!" at midnight while "Corkin'" on Shaw's Reef!

- The sounds of old Farmall tractors launching boats at Appeldorn's smile.gif

- The *bleep* of the graph as we motored over a gravel bar...

- Mommy, I gotta go pottie (as Daddy is pulling away from the landing)!

- A voice from behind me while fishing on a public pier at WBL: "Are there any fish in this lake?" My rely: No sir, there are no fish in this lake at all, just dead bodies.

- The big splash I made as I slipped off the trailer toungue while trying to line my boat up for recovery and realizing that my wallet and cell phone are in the same pocket and just as wet as I am.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
