      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!!!

Here are the results from this years Cat League:



1st place Koerner $140

2nd place Bentson $80

$20 per night for biggest fish which is highlighted in green

I appreciate everyone getting their pics in this year timely (and right) and it was a lot of fun again as it has been in the past. Congrats Koerner on the win and very nice fishing! Congrats to Bentson, he caught more fish and would have won 1st if it wasn't for the "5 Fish Totals" that was implemented this year. There was a tie for largest fish with Grave and Becklund (ME) which really doesn't mean squat but still worth mentioning! Congrats again and good fishing!

Weather is always the biggest issue, but overall it was a fun time. Of course there was the issue of flooding this year also lol. I have already heard that most are interested in doing it again next year so looks like it will be a go again. I still think a MN river get together with the Belle Plain league would be a fun time...possibly some competition?

    • 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!
