      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 .

I like it. The thing is, though, how many will take advantage of it? I personally, do not stay out on the ice for dinner very often and thus it doesn't really affect me. However, if I were to stay overnight and eat my legal catch for dinner, I am totally in favor for the ability to do that.

I do think that it will be extremely difficult for the DNR to handle, though. With the current regs in place, I don't see how they can really enforce the special regs lakes size(slot) limit, what with needing permission to enter a fish house and all. I'm sure they(the DNR) will find a way to handle this, but I don't yet know how.

I started fishing Mille Lacs a looong looong time ago (50's) with my dad and uncles. Many a great lunch was provided with fresh walleye sandwiches, or venison brats in the house. I think its great that people who are on the ice for a day or several can now fry up a nice meal of fresh fish, but as stated how is the enforcement going to work? The DNR is saying they will require the carcasses to be kept for measurement. Well that should work great for those who abide by all the laws. However its not that hard to dispose of the carcass in many ways if breaking the law is the intent. Fish have been cleaned and eaten on the ice for years even though it was illegal. I just don't know how this is going to play out over the long haul. Hopefully the majority will see this as a way to enjoy the expeirance and still maintain a good balance of right and wrong. Just my nickels worth. Bill

In general, of course, it is nearly impossible for fish and game law enforcement to actually enforce the law, especially when there are sooo many lakes for so few officers. In this regard, then, it seems to me that most laws regarding game and fish are 'idealistic' in so far as they rely for compliance not on the chance of being caught but on the hunter/fisherman's own moral code. Yes, this is true for ALL laws, not just those respecting hunting and fishing, but I think it more true for hunters/fishermen.

So, I am alright with the law because it seems that ALL laws respecting hunting and fishing are easy to break, not just this one. And I do think that people should be able to eat on the lake the fish they have caught that day, if only because it is not (usually) ok to "punish" those of us who abide by the law because others do not.

Just my 2 cents.

Carl

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
