      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 .

How would you like this landing next to you?

Crazy. It'd be even better if they busted out the auger's and started drilling. What a way to run and gun. Burger Jones is a great place to grab lunch.

I've seen planes land on madison and washington over the years. but indeed that would be kinda odd to have a plane set up shop right by ya

No kidding! I live a 1/4 mile northwest of there and fish that lake frequently. That would have been an interesting sight to see.

Although it's not in the metro I have seen planes land on LOW and fish a few times.

We actually do this quite often in northern Alberta, with a Cessna 185. Fastest way to cover a lot of lakes in a day!!!!

I was out on Bald Eagle a couple years ago and I heard helicopter come by. It was really loud aso I peeked outside. It was hovering about 40 feet above my portable and blowing around a ton of snow. Not sure what the guy was trying to accomplish...

Happens up here around Brainerd all the time. I can understand the pilots not knowing the laws.

They were in controlled airspace it was illegal for them to land there since it was so close to the airport. Minneapolis is a class B airport and from the ground there is a 5 mile radius that is still controlled by ATC and from my understanding they did not get clearance to land... this is why accidents happen.

trouble is, there are people out there who will use this to pick on sportmens and how they just like to break the rules.

I got buzzed by a plane with skis on Demontreville Lk Sat afternoon. It looked like the yellow one in the article.

Does it seem like there are more float planes? I see them all the time now during the open water season. At one time, I thought they were about the coolest things ever. Now I just consider them jetskis in the sky. Loud and annoying. I've been pushed off a fishing spot than once by a float plane repeatedly doing the touch and go routine.

Pretty major mistake for licensed pilots. Controlled airspace restrictions are no small deal. I wonder if their licenses could be suspended?

One of the worst places to eat. Unless you like $20 so-so burgers and soggy fries!!!

Many years ago I was on Lexington lake (Clear) west of Montgomery , MN ice fishing with my friend John. We had a plane land so close to us. A man and two gals hop out, drilled two holes by hand. The man got back in the plane and left the two broads fishing. Ended up tooling the plane to shore where a resort bar and grill is. He was in and out and back to the girls in ten minutes. It is my belief they were out of beers.

These guys have done this a few times before on other metro lakes. Just happens that they decided to land in a park this time. I'm sure they won't make that mistake again!

    • Where did you get your subfloor? How is it holding up? 
    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck. 
    • I would also look into using SIPS panels as an alternative to post framed. I have done a lot of projects using SIPS panels from a company called EPS in Iowa including the new fire station/ city hall in our town.    The cost of the panels is higher than the material cost of post framed but they are super insulated, go up fast and really cut down on outside noise. Our city has saved a significant amount of money in heat savings and you can even put in smaller btu HVAC which saves money. 
    • I always thought it was a visual issue. Not sure of the footage away but going house to house without seeing your lines might be a problem. I've wondered in the summer, casting a sucker off the dock and walking up to the cabin to get something if that was in wrong as well. 
    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside
