      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Lost/Stolen Rod Case Devils Lake

Recommended Posts

I know this is a long shot but it's worth the try. I was fishing on Pelican Lake on Friday night and then on Six mile bay on Saturday morning. Somewhere in between Friday night and Saturday morning my rod case disappeared. It is unlikely that I lost it as it would have been in the fish house under a cover that was on during travel. I also took the snowmobile back to the areas we fished on Friday night and checked and talked to other anglers with no luck.

This leads me to believe it was possibly stolen out of the back of the truck in where we stayed in Minnewauken. If this is the case and somebody notices it, the authorities already are aware and the local DNR Officer has my contact info and exact description of missing equipment.

It is an Otter Sportsman's Case with a red and black WeatherTech(like the floor mats) sticker on the front of it so it stands out from a distance. Inside there were 4 rod combos and a digital camera.

32" Thorne Bros Perch Sweatheart/Shimano Sahara 750 series

24" Thorne Bros Panfish Noodle(pink tip with Fuji guides)/Shimano Sienna 500 series

24" St. Croix Premier UL with spring bobber/Shimano Sienna 500 series

28" St. Croix Premier ML/Pflueger President

Cannon Powershot digital camera with photos of me on it....

If anyone would happen to find this case or see someone with it please notify the local authorities and contact me through a message on here. There will be a very generous reward to anyone who could help me recover this. thank you

Sorry to hear of your loss. Hate sound uncaring and hijack your thread, but how was the fishing? Would like to run out there one more time this year.

thanks dogs

It's hard to sleep at night summer or winter knowing that your rods, electronics, auger, etc. is ready for the taking.

Other than bringing all your stuff into the hotel - not sure how to prevent loss.

I did a "Thorne ice rod" search on "search tempest." it's a way to look at all the craigs lists for a huge area.

Good luck.

    • This is an informal group started to help everyone discuss the issues facing our MN firearm deer hunting. As we face the challenges of what to do about CWD, special interest groups, APRs, and accurate population estimates, it would be nice to hear from the nearly 500,000 hunters spread out across all areas of our state. As this group grows and hopefully bands together, polls will be done to determine what you the people would like to see in our deer herd and from the people who manage them. There are several small groups out there today that are loudly lobbying for support of their positions, but the gun hunter have traditionally been silent and left all the decisions to the DNR. We'd like to get the opinions of the hunters directly from the source.
    • i put my mealworm feeder out last nite also!!!!!!!!!
    • went out and partially filled some feeders and the suet. Also figured I better but some meal worms out.  Came inside and down came and 30 redpolls.  They stayed about 10 minutes and then a squirrel spooked them. I spooked the squirrel and went to look at a coule pics I just took. Sat down and a female cardinal popped on the worms. Male was with her but didnt pose. 
    • that field just to the west of the McStop exit on 94 has been busy the last few days. deer......turkeys, even 2 struttin there stuff and again this morning a mess of deer out there. its not uncommon to see the cranes out there eitherZ
    • I love the cranes. Fun trying to spot them when they are flying crazy high.  Been hearing a lot while out on area lakes lately. Time to refill all the feeders, been slow here all winter but should pick up soon.
    • sure was neat this morning going out to the car to listen to the robins and cardinals singin away.   seen my first sandhill cranes this morning too!!!!! to bad there gonna get snowed on!
    • Yep working on the farms is a huge help. I have cut wood, mowed yards, fixed fence, cut hay... Even just stopping out for a visit in the off season has been received gratefully. Guys that just show up, hunt and leave don't get permission again....
    • Helps if you go into the local cafes and start talking to the old farmers. In one trip I got access to 6 farms. Bring that old farmer a few fish fillets, a dressed pheasant, a couple grouse breasts, some plucked ducks, or some venison depending on what they like. Do this throughout the year and bingo you are hooked up. Word spreads and you gain new farms as well.    The farmers tell tell me they hate when people wait until the week before the season opens to ask for permission. I have helped pick rock, bale hay, or plow up  fields this also sets you apart from the people who just want to hunt.    No!
    • Hey today is the day to come win some prizes and say hi! See you there!
