      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 .

Transporting bait question

Recommended Posts

Huskie

This has probably been answered before but..... Can you transport minnows from the bait dealer to the landing/lake in water in your minnow bucket or do you need to keep them in the oxygenated bag? Can the bucket then be in your boat or car legally? Or is it just illegal to leave the landing/lake with water in your minnow bucket?

You can transport in minnow bucket from dealer or your own bait holding tank. Though when leaving the lake landing you must replace the water in your bait container with tap water or bottled water if you intend to save your bait.

I can see it now landings littered with plastic bottles and jugs winkgrin

I sell bait water at a low affordable rate shipping fees may apply. laugh I will throw in an AIS sticker at no charge.

The water just can't be from another lake.

We will be fishing on a well known walleye lake, usually pick up 4 or 5 dozen shiners for the afternoon. When we leave the lake, I'll have an old cooler with water and ice to switch the minnows into at the landing before we leave. We will be driving a mile to a private cabin, on the same lake, putting the minnows back in the minnow bucket and tie it to the dock overnight. (the water there is too shallow fot a boatlift or to leave the boat there overnight) In the morning can I transport the minnows in that bucket with water from the same lake back to the landing legally? Or do I need to use the cooler again?

You would not be able to take the minnows in that bucket with the lake water since you will be removing the bait into your boat and then driving to the landing area.

Even though the water is from the same lake you would be hard pressed explaining that to a CO. Not worth the risk IMHO.

Personally, if it's from the same lake I do not see a problem with your scenario.

My .02 cents worth.

Huskie, if the water is deep enough for you to make it to the dock, I would stop there before you pull your boat out and drop off your bait and bucket so there is no bait or water with you at the landing. Then next day put the boat in first and then go pick up your bait at the dock. No bait, no water, no hassle.

Lund and Grum: Sounds like a law firm, anyway I think you guys are both right, no sense in taking a chance. I'm sure the CO's have heard a lot of excuses over the years, even if they are true. It's too bad you can't use the honor system, but that's why we have all of these reg's in place, because it would open up a can of worms or in this case a bucket of shiners!!!!

Just finished up reading one of the guides' newsletters and was wondering about transporting leeches. Do you need to transfer leeches into another container before you leave the landing? I would imagine you do, might have to search the garage for one of my old leech lockers!!
