      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 .

Question on selling a ATV..

Recommended Posts

BigWormin

I'm trying to sell my ATV and want to make sure my ducks are in a row when the time comes. Is there actual titles for ATV's or is it just the registration card that your supposed to carry with you? I can't seem to recall if I ever recieved a title, I don't think so. If it is just the registration card do I just give that to the buyer along with a copy of a bill of sale? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

thanks!

ATVs normally only come with a certificate of origin when purchased new, not an actual title. The registration card is what you need to transfer it. If you sell your ATV.....it says in small print on your registration card that you are to "deliver this card to the owner who must submit it with an application for transfer to the MN DNR within 15 days"

A bill of sale is might not be a bad idea in addition to the registration transfer. Proof of sale is important to the seller too.

I sold a wheeler recently, the guy said he wasnt concernd with the registration because he only drives it on private land, should I be concernd that he wont transfer it, or should I not worry about it?

First off in Minnesota you MUST register an ATV even if it it used exclusively on private land. (a farce in my opinion but thats another thread) What I would be the most concerned about is, if the person it was sold to uses it for some type of illegal activity, (trespass, poaching...ETC) and it was reported by the old registration it would still list to you. May or may not be a problem but why risk the hassle?

I agree with Macgyver55, I would contact buyer and be sure he WILL transfer it, otherwise take a copy of your bill of sale and contact DNR, explain situation and have them change name of ownership.

Nowadays you don't want to take chances like this.

It sounds a little harsh but I have always made a copy of the Drivers Liscense of the buyer of any large items like this. I also collect ID for anybody who wants to write a check for anything over $100. I was almost burned by someone wanting to purchase a puppy from me with a check, when I asked for ID he suddenly decided he didn't want the dog, before I required the ID he was ready to put the dog in his truck.

I would think the ownership is more of an issue with the current owner rather than the previous owner. If the new owner fails to register it, he risks the possibility of the previous owner claiming ownership. If I were purchasing I would want to be sure to register it as soon as possible to protect myself.

True enough.. but when it comes to liability matters, say if the new owner let someone ride it and that person was seriously hurt or injured and it still was registered to you, rest assured you would need to come up with something fast to prove you sold it!

Agreed. But then many firearms are bought and sold without registration.

True enough, but in todays world a gun is the last thing I'd personally sell without a proof of sale.

How about if we turn this question around. I have purchased a n ATV that has never been registered. Am I going to be able to register it in Minnesota? What does it take?

I believe all you need to do is bring the serial #, frame # and some type of proof of purchase to the local registrar. My brother was able to register one several years ago (that was not used for sometime) without any trouble.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
