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.

    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
