      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 .

Ladies and Gentlemen, in the early morning hours of Tuesday May 15th between the hours of 2:00 AM and 7:00 AM thieves came through the RV park at Fisherman's Wharf Resort(On the east side by Big Point) and stole fishing equipment out of five differant boats and a couple of vehicles, as well as taking fishing rods and coolers right off the decks of the seasonal RV's. They got approx. 35 fishing poles, at least 6 tackle boxes, and a handheld GPS. I'm not sure what else they got, but I personally lost six rod & reel combos and my big walleye box full of tackle. I would greatly appreciate it if everyone could keep their eyes and ears open and give me a call on my cell phone or shoot me an email if they hear or see anything suspicious. Thank You, Greg (651) 308-8315

That or someone that just came out of the bar. Well look on the bright side, you get all new gear. Bad side you have to pay for it.

SATHMO,

I am in Onamia and the Milaca County Sheriff comes in and talks with me at our park model sales lot every week. I will be sharing this with him, and see if anything should turn up.

I know Paul Waldowski will keep his eyes and ears open at Appeldoorn's for you too.

I am sorry that this has happened to you and as Tom Fellegy says will keep my eyes and ears open for you. I hope you reported it!

Fish On!!!

Sorry to hear that Satchmo. I hope you have insurance (check your homeowners policy.) Just another reminder that we have to lock our stuff up no matter where we are. It's also a good idea to lay out all your gear and open your tackle boxes and take pictures. It's hard to account for all your stuff after its gone. I hope you get your gear back and the thieves poke an eye out with a rod tip.

Dan

Thanks guys! We made out a report with the Mille Lacs Co. Sherrifs Dept. and I've filed a claim with my insurance company, but it may be while before I get that settled. The worst part was trying to remember all the stuff I had in my box so I could make out an inventory list for the insurance adjuster. What a pain!! I am fortunate that I only have a $250 deductable and a replacement cost policy. My buddy lost 3 rods and his tackle box, but he has a $1000 deductable. I'm certainly not going to let this ruin my summer. It's the first incident I've had in over 40 years of running around to different areas of the state, and if you let it get to you, they win. Officer Sammis was very nice to deal with and he said that some of these crooks are not too brite and that they actually recover more than you would think. I'm not going to count on it though. I also have a friend on the local police force that is going to watch for the stuff on their pawn network. We'll see what happens. I think I'll just gear back up and go fishing.

Reading this thread made me inventory all my gear. It adds up fast. Good luck with your insurace company and replacing your gear.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
