      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 .

Just a reminder that you still have to have your I.D. on your portables....you don't need a licence but you do need your I.D. I know a guy that cost him $80 this weekend cause he didn't have it on there.

I've heard a few people say the same thing. So what exactly qualifies as an ID, if I still have my portable license from last year, can I just put that in the window?

"The following regulations apply to fish houses, dark houses and portable shelters used on all Minnesota waters, unless noted in the 2007 Minnesota Fishing Regulations Handbook.

- All shelters (including dark houses, fish houses and portable shelters) placed on the

ice of Minnesota waters must have either the complete name and address, driver’s

license number, or the nine-digit Minnesota DNR number on the license of

the owner plainly and legibly displayed on the outside in letters, and figures at least

two inches in height."

The way i am interpreting this is that the ID rule is the same as before you just dont need a license tag along with it. let me know if i am interpretting this wrong. thanks guys

Correct. you still need identification, and the only time you need a shelter license is when you leave the shelter unattended overnight.

There is also a pretty big thread of this under the main ice fishing forum.

But you still need to have the tag in your possession...correct? Along with your license.

Somebody else can correct me if I'm wrong, but No, you do not need to purchase a shelter tag for a portable shelter unless you plan on leaving it out on the ice unattended over night.

I have a side question then? Planning on trying my Yukon ground blind for a portable shelter this winter and wonder where could a guy place my ID number etc? Because it's so dark or camo'd how are you going to see it from a distance anyways? I'm not suggestion not to, but looking for any suggestions on where or how to place it on my blind?

maybe consider one of those ID holders like Clam makes. I have one on my fishtrap yukon. It attaches with a couple of push pins fasteners and is removable. The only drawback is you need to punch a tiny hole in your canvas to feed the back of the fastener through. The fabric self repairs itself ok and you can put nail polish or rubber cement over the hole when you are done if you are particular. I printout my DNR license # on the computer (font size 216 in times new roman works good, it prints on two sheets in landscape mode) and laminate it. I slide it into the ID holder and I'm good to go.

Just don't forget some reflective tape on your shelter if you will use it at night. It will help keep people from running into your house with their sled or vehicle.

You could just get another piece of cloth of some kind and paint the number on it and then just take like four saftey pins and pin it to your shelter. Inexpensive....but effective....kind of like me. grin.gifwink.gif

Thanks for the posts on clearing the ID Q's up.

MR if you want go to kinko's, or any copy shop, and have them print your numbers out and laminate them. Then get some safety pins and pin it to the outside. This is what i use to do with my old house because the license slot wasn't big enough for the 2 inch letter. it shouldnt cost more than a couple bucks.

Good Luck Fishing to all.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
