      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 .

Mushroom Explosion!!

Not much of a gardener or yard guy. Why did we wake up to dozens and dozens of mushrooms in our lake front yard this morning? I mean virtually overnight. Could we prevent them? Will they create a long term problem? Where? What? Why? LOL

Very wet in the last couple weeks. Mushrooms should have no effect on the lawn. They should fade within a couple days. They do grow up overnight so thats not surprising.

Sorry I didn't see this one earlier.

I suppose, short of using a LOT of fungicide and spreading it over acres and acres, you're not going to get rid of the fungus, which is actually doing you some good. The body of the mushroom is only the fruiting part of the organism, like the apple on an apple tree. The organism itself can be quite large (the largest organism on earth is a fungus, doncha know?)

The 'shrooms are almost certainly harmless if they came up that quickly and were growing out of the grass. There are a few grass-loving saprobes that are will give you a belly ache and Human Faucet Syndrome, but they'll only hurt you if you eat them. (I suppose it's too late, but if you've got a pic, it'd be fun to see if we can figure out what it is....but probably too late at this point.)

There's a decent chance you had an edible pop up in the yard. If so, eat away (unless you use lots of chemicals on the lawn)!!!

Are they in circles?If so,they are called fairy rings.Nothing you can do except dig it all out and replace the dirt and grass.They only show up during periods of lots of rain.

I have the same issue. They appear mostly in areas I had tree trunks ground down and I replaced with dirt and sod or woodchips. Thanks for the info.

Yep, a circle of mushrooms is called a fairy ring. There's a type of mushroom called the "fairy ring mushroom" because it so often grows in fairy rings, but LOTS of mushrooms also grow this way, so more sleuthing is required to figure out what they are.

If they ARE the real "fairy ring mushrooms," you've got a very tasty treat in your yard. Google "marasmius oreades" if you want to see if that's the specific genus and species you've got.

What's the difference if mushrooms are in the lawn, especially at this time of the year with a decent amount of rain? I really can't see much sense in treating it with chemicals and killing off the good natural things that happen in healthy soil.

What I would like to know is how to tell the tasty ones from the make you sick ones.

I'd find a well experienced friend or otherwise learn from someone in real life.

I'm leery of making a decision based on some pics in the book or on the internet.

Yep, getting someone who knows what's what is probably the safest and quickest way to learn, but it's not the only way. There are also plenty of forays through the Minnesota Mycological Society (and quite a few of them are in your neck of the woods, Del) that are really, really helpful, as they'll probably have an expert there who can identify pretty much everything that's found.

If you're going to go it alone, there are some edibles that are quite tricky to tell apart from the poisonous ones; those take a lot of time and experience and caution.

There are also some others that are pretty darn easy to figure out. A bit of reading, a few pictures, a couple of questions in the mushroom forum, and you'd be on your way. You can google the "Foolproof Four" to get started on the easy ones.

Hello guys, Nice discussion going on Mushroom Explosion.  Shiitake mushroom has the effects of preventing and curing cancer, raising immunity, defending senescence and prolonging life, reducing blood fat, treating high blood pressure, lowering cholesterol. It is used medically for many diseases involving diabetes, tuberculosis, infectious hepatitis, neuritis. Some agricultural companies like agrinoon.com/agriculture are especially known for catering the best Mushroom Logs for Sale. Thanks. Continue discussion.

Hey Delun Kang long time no hear.

How are things going at the Agrinoon Mushroom company you sell for? Not sure if you read the date but this is a pretty old post from 2013. Also, this internet site is mainly for Minnesota-USA which the weather has been as cold as -20 below in the last week or two so not a whole lot of mushroom growing going on right now.  Good luck with the sales! ;)

    • Hooked up with the Finicky Fooler owner and creator Tom to do some ice fishing for walleye on Petenwell Lake in central Wisconsin. We managed to catch a few jigging and and also a few on the Finicky Fooler tip ups including a nice slot walleye! Ice fishing walleye can be tough at times but I am glad we ended up getting into a few fish. We moved 3 times before we finally found some active fish away from some crowds.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8dRlwxKVTI&t=1s
    • Well so much for the big storm around here. 
    • That's what it's all about right there. Father and son making memories.
    • When you sum up a season with those pictures, it’s hard for the Frozen Chosen to agree you had a terrible one.    VERY nice.   I can understand though, not getting to enjoy what’s there is almost worse than not having it at all!
    •   Don’t have find my phone turned on or whatever your particular phone’s location service is and your photos shouldn’t be geo tagged.   Sometimes when I get geo tagged text pics from others, I let them know.    I agree with Eyeguy, we’ve slanted just about every fish catching possibility our way and the internet forums are just another one of those tools.  But like a flasher for ice fishing, we’d hate to be without em anymore.  Everybody wants to know what’s going on.   But yeah, being careful with sensitive resources probably has led to less chat about specific lakes unless they’re the ones already being advertised on billboards.
    • A good way to wreck a lake is to put out "there is a hot bite" out on the internet.
    • Ufatz, Rockport is rebuilding, but they have a looooong ways to go. That’s actually what took up a good portion of my season this year. Lotsa people still need help, and it just didn’t seem right to be out chasing ducks when I could be helping people rebuild their lives. They’ll still be there next year Yes there’s still clouds of redheads. They’re too easy to kill. Problem was, those puddles love to hang out in the shallow marshes, and with the lowest tide I’ve ever seen, they were dry all week. Makes hunting real tough cuz they spread out in the big bays and it’s real hard to narrow down any concentration of birds
    • Do big bunches of redheads still hang out in the basin right in Rockport?:)   And how is poor Rockport looking these days? It really took a beating from the big storm. Didn't ever get around to hunting the area but spent two or three winters there a few years back. Lots of good fishing and pleasant weather most of the time. BUT it can get chilly!! Glad you had fun; it's always nice to see flocks of ducks even if you don't actually get a shot at them.
    • info speed, electronics, titanium spring bobbers, custom rods, inline reels, faster augers, plastic baits, sharper hooks.  fish dont stand a chance.   Speed of info probably the biggest factor. Pics on sites are great but cant share specific location or even the lake unless its a beast of a lake. I just heard last week that sometimes cell phone pics can be investigated to find gps location if a guy is knowledgeable in how to do it. Blurr out the background might not work before long. I think these type sites can still be good for tips but gotta be careful with location info. 
    • I had same challange. Went with a 12v temperature relay switch. Heater/Fans in my DIY wheelhouse now functions just like my home or RV forced air furnance. It comes with a small heat sensing probe i mounted on my upper air duct than set the on/off temperature so fans runs/stops when heat kicks on/off. Provides perfect comfort for $15.00. https://www.walmart.com/ip/bayite-DC-12V-Fahrenheit-Digital-Temperature-Controller-10A-1-Relay-with-Sensor/585224840?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=12524&adid=22222222227093022211&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=t&wl3=213210114658&wl4=pla-345493512458&wl5=9019533&wl6=&wl7=9019476&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=117430032&wl11=online&wl12=585224840&wl13=&veh=sem   Sensor under foil tape   Took photo when furnace was off. Temp range -40 to 230 f. Spare probe to right of controller, copper tube is thermostat, black button is pilot iginter.   Total set up with 4 speed auto fan switch.
