      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 .

Park permit

Recommended Posts

Last week I launched at the St. Croix Bluff Park and received a ticket for a expired park permit. It was a stupid and very costly mistake, $102.00 OUCH!

They must troll the launches for any violations they can find. I made the mistake of having expired tags on my truck. I know my fault and all, and for those of you who have never broken a rule and always say "the law is the law" I will let you know I have been a registered nurse who has worked Stillwater prison, and I would rather have the police chasing real felony criminals then watching out for us fishing criminals. But then again I did learn my lesson grin.gif

My wife met me one day at noon and got one also in the spring . The Judge threw it out saying the Sheriff couldn’t prove she was the one driving the car at the time. I saw them Buzz through at about 11ish checking vehicles last weekend also

- My sticker was only about $20.00 I think-great investment

The Wash Co Parks annual permit is $25. Daily is $5 (there is a self-service drop box near the park entry for when no staff is at the office). It's valid at the launch at St. Croix Bluffs, Lake Elmo Park, Square Lake, and in 2008 Big Marine Lake.

Kind of a tough situation for the sheriff because some parks beg them to patrol the parks to reduce the number of break-ins and other deliquent activities.

I just didn't realize my permit had expired. I still think $102.00 is too much for a non moving violation

I have had problems with the MN side of the parks on the St Croix...I've been given ticket's or warning tickets for not haveing a park permit but look at my window and there it is. MN annual stickers are like huge!!!! compared to WI. And somehow they didn't see that.

hitt,

I hear ya' on both counts...anything on the actual park permit that could be changed to help people realize when their permit has expired?

I guess the 'parks' isn't quite comfortable with the idea of requiring permit purchasers to surrender their name, address, phone #, etc...maybe they should reconsider this, perhaps creating a database for renewal notices and things like window replacement and car sales?

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping

      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
