Family?

Recommended Posts

Rick,

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.

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
