      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 .

Who wants to help with muskie rearing pond????

Recommended Posts

We're planning on netting our rearing pond on Nov. 1 and need some strong backs. We also need help clearing weeds in the pond on Oct 25th. If we don't get the weeds out we won't be able to get the fish out the next week.

Hey Man,

There was a link on my original post. It appears someone edited it out. Greg Kappas is in charge of this operation and his # is in the post.

Here's the post on the clearing of weeds:

AS of now we need help removing weeds from the rearing pond. I am hoping they will continue to die off

my gut is they wont. So on saturday October 25 if you can help with weed removal come on up.

We need to remove weeds before we net or we will kill the fish.This will involve getting in the water

this is crucial to our whole operation

help will be needed. we will meet at perkins in cambridge at 7am ( hiway 65 and 95 northwest corner)

please be prompt.....plan to be netting by 8 am.

If you can help please post reply here

thanks

Hiya -

If you guys get the chance to help out with this do so. I've got prior commitments I'd be there in a heartbeat (and I may be there Nov 1 if some shaky plans fall through.) It's really a neat deal, and a load of fun. Get to see lots of little muskies, and usually some entertaining pratfalls by the guys helping out. A few guys fall in the mud, or in the pond. Last time I was there a guy had a muskrat climb out of the net and run up his arm, which was even funner than it sounds. I don't know who was more shocked - the guy or the muskrat.

The best reason to go, though, is to witness first hand just what it takes to support this fishery. Netting the ponds is quite a feat, and it's a great example of how far the TC Chapter, MI, and Paul Hartman are willing to go to do their part for the fishery we all enjoy.

Go if you can.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Hope to see you there RK! This pond is a different one then you were at last time. We're working with Paul on the other one to winter the fish over to get them larger. We even purchased an aerator to make sure we don't have a winter kill.

This one is a new one for the TC Chapter. As of a couple weeks ago the fish were only 6-7". We've been feeding them as much as possible lately so hopefully they'll hit 10" by then. We're probably looking at putting them in Indy right now. I'll know more next Thursday.

I can't make the 25th, but I'm planning on the Nov 1st date, and I don't even have the strong back that Shawn mentioned!

Granted this photo shows a fish a big bigger than we'll be pulling out of this particular pond, but the image sure does get you interested, at least I hope it does!

Hello,

I live in Cambridge and would love to help on the 25th and the 1st. What tools, if any, do we need to bring and should we have some wadders?

*** Reminder of this opportunity to help out on Saturday. ***

I can't make this Saturday but I'm planning on Saturday, November 1st.

There may just be a little reward/incentive involved for those registered FMers that can participate. Regardless, it's a great way for an individual to make a significant contribution to the future of our fisheries. It's also a great way to meet some new people with the same interests!

Hey Guys,

If you can please call Greg on the number provided above so he can get a head count. As of this afternoon he said he had 4-6 which is a little light. We'd love to get a dozen + if possible.

Thanks to those that will be there!

I would have loved to help ... but last weekend I tweaked my knee pulling out 9 docks and 5 boat lifts. Part of the hazards of lake living and getting old.

I may be in for the 1st depending on the knee. Good luck to those working on it tomorrow, should be the nicest day of the weekend.

I am planning on helping tomorrow and left Greg a voice message but I will be gone tonight. Is everyone meeting at Perkins at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow too or is that just on the 1st? can someone PM with the details for tomorrow (either a meet up site and time or the location of the property)? Thanks in advance.

i'm going to build two custom Heckler ''Rides'' medium sized for free raffle to anyone who shows up on the two dates mentioned and helps out. and those who don't win will get a coupon mailed to them for 25% off any lure(s) purchase, good forever. email address and name will be needed. or at least an address. i'll be building both to the point of patterning. the winners will choose the pattern they want and when they are done i will ship them to them for free also. i'm not able to help with the physical stuff because of doctors orders so i'm doing what i can to help out in a way i can. thanks in advance to anyone who participates.

    • We just have it at the lake.   I could be wrong about the 5 bucks, as it was from memory of last year.   But I figure they want or need something to keep me in their system.    Having a subscription in two locations would be different.   I have never done that, although have considered it. 
    • If you weren't a kid, why weren't you there in person? Why watch it on TV when you could have signed up for the real thing? 
    • Ha Ha, me crying? I was the only one who stuck up for you. Looks like you probably had a time out? I was messaged by a mod and I told them I wasn't interested in having comment removed/you sanctioned. Guess someone else had enough of you. If you think I eat very much sugar, you are wrong again. I am diabetic so I probably ingest less sugar than anyone here, maybe even you.
    • Only 9 players in all of baseball have a higher BA and OBP than Joe. Of those only 1 is in the AL. I would happily give up 10-15 HR a season in return for 30 points of OBP.
    • Is that the only place you have it?  We have it at home with a dish at the lake also and we can suspend that box for free and turn it on and off whenever we want.
    • Maybe the ice show in St Paul in December. It's pretty hard to find anyone close enough to justify the time and expense required to save the few dollars you end up saving.   
    • Any one here have used medium-heavy jigging rods for saltwater? If you do, what is the best technique to be used?
    • Yes, a little low.  Remember he is hitting from the 2 spot.  He follows the teams leader in RBI's in the line up and still has been remarkably effective when he has come up with runners in scoring position.  He is an on base guy, why he bats 2nd, he sets tne heart of the order up. Plus the Twins line up, is pretty even 1-9 in regards to RBI's, save for our catchers.
    • Well, you could be right!
    • Yes, this is great to watch for kids born around '66 still in diapers and missed it on TV!
