      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?

This guy I use to work with started an online biz selling walleye. He gets it from a distributor, maybe thats what the craigslist guy does to?

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.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there. 
    • gimruis
      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious

      8Went out locally here thanksgiving mornin on three inches of solid ice hot into the eyes really well. A week later whole place was open water again so we went out in the kayaks got 14 eyes than went out again now that ice is back went to same lake and had a rough weekend we only managed to get three all weekend. Went out on all local lakes they are all sketchy at best. Few more days to solidify that bad ice and should be good to go. Went to shakopee in onamia and there was a solid 10 inches out there.
