      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 .

seriously a ticket?

Recommended Posts

So me and two friends were out catching bullheads at one of our best little ponds in west st Paul. We got done fishing at about 10:30 and walked back to the truck and were talking for a minute and a sheriff pulls into the lot along with 3 west st. Paul cops and gives us a ticket for being in the park after 10:00. anyone ever gotten one of these, was wondering how much it is cause she said she didn't know and we would be mailed something in about 2-3 weeks. I think that is the last time my buddy from lindstrom is going to come hang out with us while we are fishing.

If any of them bullheads would have died while she was writing us are tickets i think i would have to go to court and ask for restitution in the amount of the fine it is for being in a park after 10. I could see if we were partying or starting trouble but come on FISHING. She needs to get a life.

Yeah man I posted about this on your facebook but down here we can get a permit to park after hours. I was bugged before I got that though and the cops were really nice after they realized my girlfriend and I were just Catfishing. We still had to leave but there were like 3 cars with their lights on and everything...

You're welcome. It took several tickets, phone calls, complaining, sweet talking and a couple of years to get those permits.

I have always made it a practice to be out of the park at the closing time as one can and will get tagged for after hours.

It would be nice if they would be open later but a few have ruined it for all the others.

Thats always the story, a select few can't behave and then the stricter rules are put in place.

It's amazing that this is what the cops spend their time doing. How about solving some of the cities real problems once and a while?

Hold on now they are out there doing there job! You may not like what they are doing, but its what they are there to do. If she wasn't somewhere else then at that moment she was assigned to anything, and she is free to patrol. Like Tom said rules are rules and they are they for some reason or another like that or not thats how it is. I do agree that this is a dumb law, but thats what it is, these guys knew it and took that risk. Its just a safer version of Russian roulette. One pull your safe and the next BAM!!

Yup, like Tom said, a select few probably ruined it for others. Years ago it might have been the perfect place for drug deals or partys. We don't know. That would also probably explain the multiple units involved. Too bad some people have to ruin it for everyone elso who wants to use the park for what it was made for.

yes they were doing there job and i agree with that but to clarify this a little, we had no idea the park closes at ten we were there two nights earlier with other people till about 11:00pm. There are no signs posted in the parking lot in the entrance to the parking lot on the path to the pier or on the Pier itself. yes I know she was doing her job but holy [PoorWordUsage] $120. that's alot to me especially since i have been out of work for about the last 6 months and i wont be going back to work till the end of this month. I thought it would $30 maybe $50 dollars tops. Oh well lesson learned i guess.

    • Seasoning is not that big of an issue, just make your own rubs. The internet is full of recipes. It is a bit of work to smoke a pork butt or brisket depending on the smoker you have but with the right equipment it's not so much work as it is the time to prepare.  If you are one of those who are always in a hurry then you may want to just stick with steaks, burgers and hot dogs on the gas grill but if you have some time and want some gourmet food once in a while nothing beats good ole' southern BBQ, for me. The fact that we live in this predominantly Scandinavian region where ribs are usually baked, boiled or put in a crock pot and ketchup is too spicy is all the more reason it is imperative that I be at least semi-competent at BBQing. It is almost impossible to get good,  authentic, southern BBQ around here. You can however get a good steak just about everywhere you turn.
    • Looks like salt, pepper, maybe cayenne and garlic.   30 minute marinade isn't doing much.      Good pork doesn't need much more than salt and pepper and maybe a little sugar.  
    • Shot a 10 point with the slick trick raptor trick last week and was really happy with the results. Shot him at 2 yards so I waited for a quartering away shot to open up more of the vitals. Broadhead took a rib and a chunk of a vertebra going in 2 ribs,sternum and part of the leg going out. Slightly bent a blade otherwise no damage to the head. Only thing I didnt like was the entry hole in the hide was only 3/4" wide and that is because of the front deployment design. Once it was through the hide it opened to the full 2" cut. Blood trail at impact was 2 feet wide and he only went 25 yards.  I have taken 3 deer and a turkey this year with different heads. A whitetail doe and turkey with 3 blade rage chisel tip,both broadheads were broke after the shot. A mule deer doe with a griztrick 2,30 yard shot pass through. Great blood trail head was perfect and still sharp. And the buck with the raptor trick. 
    • Still on a roll from my 2016 season. 
    • Outlier. I will confess though that at least with brisket it is beef so by nature it won't need as much as pork in terms of seasoning.  
    • Texas style.  Salt and black pepper.   Put it in the smoker.  wrap it.    
    • @Big Dave2 Yeah, I have a couple acres in the woods with deeded water front access.  Had it for about 10 years now.  This camper has been stationary on it for about 6 of those years.
    • It can be but not without a quite a bit of work and seasoning which adds to the cost. I don't see too many people cooking brisket , pulled pork etc without adding a whole bunch of stuff to make it taste decent. 
    • If you want a steak then you are probably right but sometimes a good brisket sandwich is even better!
