      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 .

Seems like this is being discussed on quite a few forums:

Make fishing opening earlier, lawmaker proposes

Article Last Updated: 12/19/2007 03:33:24 PM CST

A key Minnesota lawmaker has proposed moving up the state's fishing opener a week, in part to reduce conflicts with Mother's Day.

State Sen. Satveer Chaudhary, DFL-Fridley, sent a letter this week to Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Mark Holsten and to members of an upcoming DNR roundtable. He said he plans to introduce the change during the upcoming legislative session.

"The benefits of this change include bringing the fishing opener to a date consistent with border lakes and border states, benefit resort activities, and reduce conflicts with Mother's Day,'' Chaudhary, head of the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee, said in the letter.

He also unveiled plans to set a statewide daily limit on walleyes of four, instead of six.

The DNR was not immediately available for comment.

In an interview, Chaudhary said moving up the mid-May opener a week is a proposal worthy of discussion and he welcomes the opportunity for feedback from the DNR forum in early January.

The date of the fishing opener is based on the typical Walleye spawning time, is it not? I don't know if it will happen because of this reason, but a week longer fishing season would be nice. It would also align the inland opener with some of the border water openers. I'd say it's a win-win in most areas.

I would think that many of the spawning areas that we are used to fishing on the opener may be closed to fishing in some years because the spawners will still be concentrated in those areas!

I am not in favor of this change.
