      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 .

We'll i'll state something on this forum, and i would like this not to get into a yelling match because its mainly opinionated by us who dont know exaclty how this work. I would be in favor of a 4 fish limit but more slot limits on lakes also. The reason i say this is that there are lakes where a slot limit could hurt the walleye populations and other fish populations in the lake.

I would like to see a slot protecting all fish 20-27 inches. Really for me its 21"-? and the only reason i put a question mark is i've never caught a walleye over 26" But with the ability of replicas a big walleye does not need to be kept. Even though i've heard and Deadhead can probably make this more clear that a large walleye might have a lot of eggs but they are actually less fertile than lets say a 24" eye.

For a lot of people this is more opinion than actual fact data, but if we can keep this cival it could be a great conversation piece.

It seems that these conversations are never civil. Everyone has there opinion and have no shame in writing it, which is a good thing. I think our fishing regs shouldn't be made based on tourism. I like Shae's idea of the slot, protecting the 20+" fish BUT allowing someone to keep a trophy. We have to face the facts there are many different types of angles out there. Most people on here are out for the fun of angling, and taking home an occasional meal, but there are people who come "UP NORTH" to spend a week or a weekend at the lake who want to keep some fish to eat or bring home or whatever. Those are the anglers that are keeping the regs as liberal as they are now. When it comes down to it, lakes should be managed on a lake to lake basis. If we had to do one thing statewide, it would be to protect the 20+" fish and allowing one over 28". Just my 2 cents
