      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 .

Lakeshore question

Recommended Posts

We are looking at buying some lakeshore in this area and one of the lots we are looking at has some reeds out in front of it. My question is, Can you remove some of the reeds near shore to put a dock in and have some swimming area. If so, what can you do to remove them. I'm not talking removing a lot, just enough to have some usable shoreline. Does the dnr allow you to remove reeds. Any information would be appreiated.

Thanks

I believe most lakes in the area, the DNR allows up to 40 feet cleared for a dock/beach area. I don't know the exact rules when it comes to how the reeds can be removed, but I don't believe you can use anything on them to kill them, they must be hand pulled from what I remember. Best of luck and enjoy the property!

You need to talk to Leslie George with the DNR in Glenwood. She does the permiting for that. Shes very busy this time of year so be patient but Im sure shed be happy to talk to you over the phone to tell you what to expect. wink.gif

Dont assume too much.... they are getting more and more strict on messing with lake vegetation, habitat, etc.

From Do. Co. Land and resource.

Limited clearing of vegetation may be allowed for 25 feet or of 25 percent of shoreline whichever is less.

I don't think they will allow any type of chemicals to remove. Cutting and raking is what I have seen people mainly do to open up their lots.

Slimandgrizzly is right - you absolutely DO need to contact the area's DNR aquatic plant management specialist in these situations, no matter where or what lake you're talking about...even little 'private' (no public access) lakes. You can find out who that specialist is by contacting the Area Fisheries office. There are things you can remove without a permit, but it is very species and area specific...call the aquatic plant management specialists, it's definitely not worth the ticket/fine/restoration hassle.
