      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 .

TC Chapter stocking White Bear

Recommended Posts

I feel like a few got dumped in there about 6 weeks ago. I had a day with a rash of small follows. They weren't snakes because they were green! Maybe the youngins just liked me. Anyone else notice that?

Also, that same day there were a bunch of giant red and yellow floating buoys that were placed after I got there. They were spread all over the lake. Are these vehicles for stocking or are they markers for sailboaters or what?

These fish are going to be fingerlings(10-15"). Our supplier of yearlings never came up with the number of fish that he said he had. These will also be tagged with both floy (yellow external) and pit tags(internal).

TC Chapter is Chapter #1, kind of has a certain nostalga to it being #1, and Shawn is the president.

I believe the plan was for a few hundred to go in, not sure what the final number was.

Regardless, thanks to Shawn and all behind the effort!

We put in around 200 on Friday and we're going to put in another hundred or so sometime this week. We're also planning on stocking tonka this week too...assuming someone can get me fish. The plan is to put yearlings in tonka (16-20"). If we can't get yearlings then we'll have to use fingerlings to fill out our monetary commitment.

If it is anything like when they stocked Bald Eagle, they don't really need any help, but it is pretty cool to watch smile But yeah, a bit more advanced notice would be cool so people can try to get there to see it. I was glad I went out to Bald Eagle, very cool to see the future "monsters" in person!

Hey Guys,

I wish I could give more notice, but I usually only know a day out if that. Even then I don't know what time they'll be coming. We don't really need any man power for this operation, but all are invited to observe. I truely is one of the coolest things we do. After all, what other time will you ever have where you can see a few hundred muskies at the same time?

Right now we may be stocking sometime tomorrow. I'm having fish from 2 different sources being brought to the west metro DNR office where they're going to be tagging the fish. The plan is to get fish for tonka and WBL. Once they're tagged the DNR will bring them to the lake. If anyone is interested in helping to tag the fish or see it happen drop me a note and I can get you some info. It would be tomorrow afternoon in Eden Prairie next to the Vikings training center.

    • Heres a couple pictures we took after my work meeting and waking up the wife.
    • Smurf hope all goes well with the pooch. Definitely tough to see them as they age my 9 year old lab is getting pretty greyfaced. Started looking for another up and comer to start the training process again . 
    • Green lake Spicer if ice is off. The governer's opener this year will be in the Willmar area. 
    • Fibertech productions replica's Brainerd. Have a walleye done by them excellent work!
    • Was wondering if anybody has a fiberglass mount of a Largemouth that they would like to post pics of? It's now been 15 years since I caught my biggest bass (22 1/4"), and I've come to the conclusion that I will probably not top it. So I'm interested in finally putting one up on the wall.   I'm guessing I would probably go with Artistic Anglers, but would love to hear if anybody has any other suggestions. Thanks!
    • Has there been any announcements what the governor will be doing for fishing opener yet? Does he still honor the tradition but head to the southern part of the state?
    • We need warm windy days to get things really going.  I'm guessing the in-laws lake 20 minutes north of Deer River will still have ice floating around on opener.    On this day in 2010 I had already returned from a Bdub canoeing and camping trip. That year and this year seem to be two extremes.  
    • the brown hounddog pictured above went in today to get fixed up!!!!!! wife should be able to pick her up about 3;30 today. sure stunk not being able to feed her this morning. the looks i got ........like what da he!!!!!!!!!
    • the missed call hasnt really bothered me, the wild should have retaliated after that but they seemed just lax about it. too bad they suspended him, just wish I was old enough to watch the playoff atmosphere of the 80's and early 90's. i thought by the end of the 3rd they would have tied it, I think the mix up lines helped change up the momentum, boudreau will need to pull some of this stuff tonight if they seem stale. I agree with Lung, Kiovu has not impressed me this year, his shootouts, his shots on goal just nothing special, just hope tonight they find a spark on the offense as we know those big boys on the Jets will be pushing them around tonight, too bad we dont have some more Folino's
