      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 .

Multiple Day Fish Cleaning Question

Recommended Posts

Rhino__14

What are the cleaning/possession rules for multiple day stays on URL. I know you can only clean fish immediately before cooking them but what do you do with the carcasses if you are staying for multiple days to show they were caught on a certain day? We are heading up next Fri-Sun. Are we allowed to catch, clean, and eat our limits on Fri and Sat and then take a limit home on Sun?? Do the carcasses for the other days need to be labeled??

Yes you can eat your 2 walleye a day and then on Sunday catch your 2 and bring them home. Not sure on what you do with the remains though.

i know you dont have to keep the carcasses in your house all weekend.how they gonna know if you ate fish or not.just get rid of the carcasses the next mornin.then you should be able to bring your limit home.but i could be wrong.i would look at the dnr site for more info.

The carcasses must be kept in your house unfrozen and available for measurement by the DNR through the end of the day they were caught.

Then you MUST dispose of the remains on shore BEFORE you possess anymore walleye. They are still considered your 2 fish possession even if they are carcasses.

If the DNR stops by your house on Sunday and you have 3 days worth of carcasses and 2 walleyes to bring home, you will be cited for 4 walleye over your possession limit.

There have been multiple flyers and info tyoed about this... the latest update and clarification took place the 1st week of January... I'll see if I can scare it up.

Good Luck!

Well said Ken. Remember WE are responsible for following the rules. Each day you get up, make a run to shore and ditch the remains from the meal you made the day/night before (in a garbage can). Then your possession limit starts over. With the fines as they are, you won't want to be looking at the Game Warden with that many walleyes in a bag! ;\)

And I'm sure one of our several wardens using spotting scopes as they do will also say "BINGO" when they remind you where your new garbage can is located, the possesion limit is 2 along with the littering laws.

I'm guessing it is cheaper to "dispose of properly"

Fearfish...

You gotta be kidding me! You're gonna come on a public forum and advocate that someone breaks the law? Cute! I always hoped that all members of this site abide by the laws and promote ethics in all outdoor pursuits! \:\(

Can you imagine the lake at ice out if only a thousand guys pulled that stunt over a weekend throughout the winter? I'm sure the cabin owners will really be pleased when all the remenants from 'your' dinner wash up on their beach... sick.gif

Dispose of your trash properly! I take my 10 year old out and pick up trash most every spring... and even at 10 he's appalled at what we see and knows better! And that includes a couple of hundred walleye carcasses left on the ice under houses... \:\(

Good Luck!

I agree, I fish in the Twin Cites and I am sick of picking up after other people, almost every time out I come back with an extra bag FULL. So please don't litter it only makes the rest of us look bad. If you bring it out bring it back if you don't want to carry it back don't carry it out!!!!!!!!!!

Oh I remember it. It was seriously cold out, I was hiding in the truck and I look across the ice and there is a very young man out skimming holes. Artic explores said to heck with it but not that guy. You sould post the pic bigger so we can see the excitement on his face. You just can't make that stuff up.

Fearfish 4:20 you talking MJ?? I hope you are kidding with your can idea......the lake and the fish will pay for it if we had people do that. If you don't want to drive off the lake then don't go out there please.

You should have seen last springs beach clean up. The Upper Red Lake Area Assocation puts on a spring clean-up effort. We filled trucks full. I had a small strech of the eastern shore and the assistance of the Kelliher Public School seniors and we filled my snomobile trailer three times. If I remember correctly we filled four trucks FULL with trash off the beach.

Locals do not take kindly to littering and most won't hesitate to bring it to attention.

The moon shot is awesome! Some of the best moon rises and sunsets I have witnessed were courtesy of Red Lake! Sometimes worth twice the cost of admission!!!

Good Luck!

Your garbage can idea was kinda funny 4:20.

I was disappointed your crucifixion wasn't more severe or clever though.

relax guys wow! get all worked up I figured nobody could just read that and not reply with something outrageous! had to test the waters to see the responses. If you honestly think everyone on FM does the "right thing" in the world your madly mistken. Im sure nobody is perfect no matter how much you preach ethics! Rules constantly get broken due to lack of knowledge or just choosing to do it. I dont condone either but it does happen!

I would imagine that you do not throw your garbage out in your own back yard so what makes you think somebody else wants it in their backyard

This is the latest regs. as posted by the DNR... Enjoy a meal, follow the laws and we can continue to have this regulation allowing us to eat fish with slot limits while ice fishing.

Good Luck!
