      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 .

Thieves Steal Boat Fuel Near Mankato

Recommended Posts

Quote:
MANKATO, Minn. (AP) ― The one that got away isn't a fish at the Lone Pine Inn on Madison Lake near Mankato. It's a gasoline thief.

Angler Curt Schueneman says the fuel from his boat and others has been stolen twice this summer, most recently on Sunday night.

He suspects the thieves, or thief, is coming in from the lake late at night and siphoning gas to use in their own boat.

He thinks that because if the thieves drove up the gravel road to the lodge, someone would hear them. And since boat fuel is a mixture of gasoline and oil, it can't be used in cars and trucks.

Sheriff's Deputy Rich Murry says there haven't been other reports of fuel thefts on Blue Earth County lakes.

Schueneman says that until the thefts stop, he's planning to keep locking his fuel tank up in his shed when he's done fishing.

Well I guess nothing is safe anymore. Even with the price of gas dropping people still feel the need to steal gas.

If you can't afford the gas, just keep your butt at home.

I have also heard this from resorts in the nestor falls, ont. area. Guy are pulling in with trolling motors late at night and siphoning gas from one boat to another.

It sucks that people have to stoop so low.

Yeah that is pretty sad. So far this summer I got my gas line for my boat stolen out of my back yard and my wire harness snipped off at the landing. I can't believe it that times are that tough. Wait until gas gets higher, you will hear of people getting robbed before you can get the gas in your tank.

Good time to seed a few tanks with 3/4 colored water, and leave as easy targets.

The culprit will soon show up....stranded...and exposed...with colored gas in his tanks.

Pretty sad that poeple feel the need to steal from each other over gas. Give me a break, it's pricey, but if you can't afford it, then get rid of the boat instead of stealing.

Those low life people have been around since the beginning of time.stealing fuel is nothing new for thieves.and any other things they can see. There are worse thimgs they can steal, like the whole boat.

Don't give them any ideas.

The people who steal might be lurking on the boards here trying to figure out what and where they can steal next.

I know of two tanks that were stolen on Tetonka. There has also been a lot of public water access theft on lakes near Mankato. Lots of crimes of opportunity.

    • Thanks for the replies. I am going to get a box of 1 3/4 #5's and a box of 1 3/4 #6's and pattern them against what I have been shooting, Hope to get that done when I go up to mow my trails this fall, whenever I can free up some time to go. I will post some results.
    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair. 
    • Cullen comes back on a very cap friendly deal.  1yr 1mil.
    • Manky, I have used dog food with grease as a filler and it works great! No issue but you  don't want to add to much grease and make all the dog food to soggy. 
    • A guy can never have to many decoys!
    • Boar, in past years you have posted that you use dog food at some bait sites, with grease on it, how does it work? Thanks minky
    • Anyone having any action at their bear baits? I have one bear coming in.
    • It seems like summer just got here and already there are signs of it ending. In the north a few maple trees are just starting to show some fall colors. A pair of bucks were seen this week, one still in velvet antlers and the other had already shed. The late summer yellows of tansy, black-eyed Susans and goldenrod speak of shorter days to come.Continued rain showers in the last week, especially across the north, are keeping river systems at higher than normal levels for mid-August. Brown trout fishing continues to pick up on the Bois Brule River. The catfish bite is on on the Wisconsin River in central Wisconsin with anglers landing good number of channel catfish. Some walleye, smallmouth bass, catfish and drum are being caught in the Peshtigo and Menominee rivers. Anglers have had good success on both the Fox and Wolf rivers catching northern pike, walleye, catfish and panfish.On Green Bay, anglers fishing for walleye on the west shore from the mouth of the Pensaukee River to Oconto are finally getting on to fish, while along the east shore success was more mixed with about half the boats reporting harvesting a few walleye while others did not catch any. Anglers targeting smallmouth bass along Door County had success in water ranging from 4 to 20 feet. In Sturgeon Bay perch fishing has been pretty good with some anglers catching their 15 fish bag limit including some larger 12-inch perch. .
    • I prefer and shoot 1 3/4 oz of 6's which will whack anything out to 50-60 yards
