What's the deal with the "Fishing MN family" tag people have recently acquired? I kind of like it, but I was just curious about it. Is it a permanent change? I'd guess it has to do with recent happenings to regulars on this board and maybe the time of year it is (and was one year ago this week). Just curious.

scoot! i can't and won't answer for rick, but my feelings are; first many of us have shared ideas and thoughts here for quite while now. although many of us have never met, we still think of each other as friends .we have shared personal feelings, thoughts, and experiences. yes i think the attack on the U.S. a year ago has brought all of us a little closer to each other. i welcome the chance to call the people here family and friends. del

Hi Scoot,
9-11 has been on my mind so I made the change. It's just a way of saying welcome to the FishngMN family. So many great folks here.

Our way of saying we appreciate all of the regulars who exchange information and allow us all to become connected through our mutuaol love of fishng and the outdoors

In addition there has been some confusion with respect to forum guide pros and advanced angler designations.

I also wanted the moderators to be designated as FishingMN Field Staff. They've been so great on the board and helped so many folks. They are so much more than just Forum Guides.

You will also see more members moved up to Pro Staff in the next few weeks. These people have taken on even more in the way of helping everyone connect with our FishingMN community. They promote our outdoor pursuits in a mature, responsible, FUN manner.

The Pro Staff have gone well beyond just being a part of the FishingMN Family, they are ambassadors for it.

I'm hoping to have more meaningful changes, improving the way we can interact with each other here at Fishing Minnesota in the next few months as well.

This may be going over the top a bit, but, I love this country, Minnesota, and the outdoor pursuits we all love. I'll never take it for granted. I hope you all feel the same way.

Say a little prayer for the victims of 9-11 and for those who are defending our freedoms today. We owe them a lot.

Hey, I am Italian by origin, so Family is really something I am proud of.
Just one question, is it the Gambino Family we belong or the Gotti ?

I would really like to stay away from the Chicago group.

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
