      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!!!

SC Forum Month Fishing Outings

Recommended Posts

There is a loose knit, no obligation/competition group forming in the South Central Forum, but anyone who would want to make the drive down is welcome to come. The following is a list of lakes, dates, and times.

Dec 20- Walleyes on Elysian- 1:00 PM

Jan 24- Panfish on German- 7:00 AM

Feb 21- Crappies on Duck Lake- 1:00 PM

March 14- Perch on Tetonka- 7:00 AM

April ?- Looking to get a group to go to Redwing/Mississippi River, but I've never been there, not sure of what time frame is best? A two day trip was brought up, with a motel stay.

May 20- Walleyes/Crappies on Madison-5:00 PM

June 13- Walleyes/Bass on Sheilds- 7:00 AM

July 18- ? July was terrible for me this year, still up in the air about this one, more than likly targeting Bass/Northerns, Is Lure still too weedy at this time?

Aug 22- Walleyes/Bass on Tetonka- 7:00 AM

Sept 23- Walleyes on Madison- 5:00 PM

October 24- Big Fall Walleyes on Lake?......Possibly head to Sarah, long drive for some but worth it from what I hear.

These will not be competitions, and you do not need to target the species mentioned. I just put them down as an idea of what will be active at that time. I will always be chasing walleyes, and some people will always chase bass....But we can still be friends right? I am trying to come up with an idea for a traveling trophy, possibly thought of some type of removable decal that the person who catches the biggest fish can place on their boat.

Both planned outings on Madison are Wendsday nights, trying to stay away from those weekend crowds and open up more opportunities to attend. Also the next weekend in September could possibly be duck opener, and I won't be missing that.

I will be bringing a big pot of Goose Chili to the January outing on German, if the fishing isn't good at least we can be warm and full right?

As far as meeting locations and more exact details, I will post closer to the events.

If anyone has an suggestions for other lakes or other questions about this please feel free to email me with it,

Otherwise, anyone who is interest, please let us all know so we can start getting a list together.

    • Nice when things fall into place.  Congrates Wanderer! Need a caller give me ring.
    • But there would be more and bigger deer walking around. Probably better age structure too. 
    •   Well although all-out war on Deer for a week with any hunting tool would be interesting.   It would kind of take the romance out of it if your trying to use a Bow or a smoke gun and someone is snipeing your Deer at 200 yards with a rifle! 
    •   Well, first off if you are talking public lands it's tough to restrict how people legally harvest game because it's public.    And you are right,it's hard to compel farmers to give up income that they rely on just so someone can hunt something. My guess is if you are willing to invest your own dollars into your own personal place to hunt you can manage it more to your liking.    It would be good. The other option is to do what other states have done and that is having fewer people own larger tracts of land that they manage privately and you,as a consumer,can pay for the level of hunting you want. Texas has this where you pay based on the size of the deer. I suppose Minnesota could do this as well. Charge hunters per point on public land or something like that.    I think we should just move every season to a one week period around Thanksgiving. Archery,rifle, muzzleloader etc. Out of the rut and everyone on the same even playing field as far as time goes. Reducing the time they are pressured will help the herd.  Nobody should need any longer than that to hunt. Most of my life we only had two days to get our deer.  
    • well the redwing blackbirds are back. making all kinds of noise on the frozen pond today.
    •   Actually, the majority of the state's population does not hunt deer but most do drive cars so generally most people do not want more or larger deer. It's not just the voice of hunters that count.
    •   Can we start keeping fish next year?? Or only if they have 8 points?  
    •   Yeah, one of those little orange dotty things!
