      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 .

DNR might be interested in that little tidbit. Might be a joke, might not. You could always order up a bag and see.

I posted something about a year ago related to this in the Upper Red Lake Forum. "Blackmarket" walleyes have been available for those looking for them in the Bemidji area for quite some time.

I guess we are not buying enough here so they are trying the WWW.

One can assume that this is illegal, but it may be a legit business.

If nobody else has a pre-existing contact or the time, I would be glad to notify the DNR in regard to this.

Let me know.

Please let us know your findings?

As long as the walleyes are caught legally you can transfer them to another person, but not sure about selling them? It could be legal?

I would rather catch my own much more fun.

Checked the DNR website. If selling from a motor vehicle they would need a fish vendor license $70. So my assumption they would need some sort of license. Is the guy just selling last years catch? With the 10 fillets he is one away from a limit so is this an ongoing deal he is offering? hmm??

I guess they have been getting away with selling walleyes around here they are getting brave enough to "expand" their business.

Or maybe its the cormorants on Leech?

Personally I would never buy Walleye anywhere. I never order any in restuarants, I just eat Cod.I assume somewhere along the line I would be supporting illegal harvesting of Walleye. Don't get me wrong I love Walleye, I'll just eat what I catch

I'm with you, if I want fish to eat I'll catch it myself. But not buying it because you 'may' be supporting something illegal? You could be supporting terrorists by buying gas or supporting child labor when buying new clothes?

Hey, if I could possibly get by without buying gas I would. smile.gif. I have a choice when I am out somewhere to eat,steak shrimp cod etc... I just figure if there is no market it wouldn't be worth it to throw those gill nets out. Thus more fish to be caught by angling.I'm not trying to start a big movement,just my own little protest.

I talked to a C.O. at lunch time. He said he would contact someone at DNR's Central Office to check it out. It's worth taking a look at at least.

I didn't provide the link to email this joker, but I believe I can still get it if nessecary.

I would think the people at craigslist are able to retrieve the email address provided with user registration though, by just having the add number.

HERE HERE on not supporting the cause! I hope all outdoorsman whom have an interest in the future well being of our fisheries will snub there nose to walleye in the restaurant. I know it would be a small movement, but a personal victory anyway. My assumption on the selling of walleye will depend on the nationality of the walleye sales rep. We're playing with a seperate set of rules no doubt. I'm assuming we are all aware that the walleye slaughtered in mass via gill netting are mostly for sale? Maybe a crude attempt at a small business expansion? Catch your own! Hook and line too!

If I remember correct, they had to stamp that on venny wrap's , because they can not get meat mixed up with other meat. I do think it was done for a legal reason and for the meat market only! It was not a message to the customer!

The meat market could not sell it, now if it is legal for the customer to go home and sell it, I do not know.

I would not see why not? It’s your game, if you are with in the legal limits and providing it to other people who do not hunt or who can not. I think the same should apply with fish! As long as you are with in the guide lines of the law for legal possession!

Now, the list this info came off of is well known to have “bad deals” going on and I would tread lightly on buying anything eatable of that site!

Also, I think most of the walleye you buy from store or eat at a restaurant, comes from Europe. If forget the name of the species, but it is a close relative of the walleye! I think most of the walleye and game fish netted in the United states goes to the pet food industry or in a Mc Donald’s fish sandwich grin.gif!

Most of the legitimate walleye would come from Canada as the Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation ships its walleye to commercial outlets in the U.S. Generally if someone is "advertising" sales without putting up a business name of sorts, it should be considered "boot legged" fish and the information forwarded to the DNR.

Same/similar ad in the Duluth version of Craig's list.

If this is someone legally selling it, I have a hard time believing that they'd use Craig's List... you'd think they would have a more traditional way of selling it.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.
