      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 .

Am I Legal?

Recommended Posts

Sorry to give you the wrong impression Deadhead, but I only get up to the lake a few times in the winter and don't own a portable. I'm older, have diabetes and can't tolerate the cold in my hand hands and feet. But I enjoy fishing and consider myself an ethical fisherman and steward of our lakes and fish. I am only able to catch an occasional northern in the area my tip-ups are located and always try to release them unharmed. I have a radio transmitter attached to each tip-up and am always in eyesight of the windows facing the lake. I think I can get to a flag as fast as anyone in a permanent house who usually don't have the sight lines that I have. I'm just trying to enjoy fishing as long as I can but want to be legal.

Maybe I can be of Help. By searching on the DNR's Website and looking at page 60 of the MN fishing regulations for 2007-2008. Anglers must be within 200 feet of your yout tip up. Here is a copy and paste of the Regs for you to read. can be found here

MN DNR Fishign Regulations 2007-2008

2007 Minnesota Fishing Regulations

ICE ANGLING AND

SPEARING

General Regulations

Two lines may be used through the ice (other than on designated trout lakes and streams).

Anglers must remain within 200 feet of their tip-up.

Using an artificial light to lure or attract fish, or to see fish when spearing, is unlawful. Exception: While angling, a person may affix to the end of a fishing line a lighted artificial bait with hooks attached. Any battery that is used in lighted fishing lures cannot contain any intentionally introduced mercury.

Hope this helps answer your question.

LefsaLad, I apologize if you got the impression that I was implying that you weren't an ethical angler. That wasn't my intention. I should know better than anybody that angling is a sport that should be enjoyed by all people, regardless of any physical or mental impediment. I should be better about promoting this sport than chastising other anglers who don't share the same views as me. After thinking about your earlier post, I suppose a tip-up is akin to settting a furbearer trap, and that is still considered sport. Sorry.

I'd still check with a CO about the legality of the situation. I think with the newer remote electronic alerts on the tipups, that it may be considered legal.

Next time you are in the area fishing, give us a post here, I'm sure one of us here are more than willing to give you hand and share some fishing stories.

Lefse --

My guess is that the transmitter is in a grey area and that it will be up to each CO on how he reads that. Might be a call from the gut.

But, in my opinion, technically it would be against the law.

If you have followed this site at all I run into the law quite a bit and that is my best guess.

Hope that helps, I am sure Dead will get back to you

I talked to the CO in Hennepin county and he told me that it would not be a problem. A friend talked a CO from the fergas falls office and the CO said it is a gray area but as long as I was attending my lines and not out of sight, that I was ok. What do you think?

I'm not fishing for meat but still love the thrill of seeing a flag go up or a bobber go down.

You boys run wesbite that is fun, respectfull of our natural resources and welcoming to all particpants. Keep up the good work.

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
