      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 .

New Sticker for all water craft on use in Minnesota Waters this year. It is a free sticker that talks about evasive species. IF you dont have it, YOU WILL GET A HUGE FINE I heard. Problem is getting them. They are hard to come by so far this spring.

I have had mine on the boat for a few weeks now. Put the small sticker on the trailer near the crank and put the other part back by the big motor down by the transducer. I picked mine up at the DMV this past winter why renewing my Drivers Licsense. They had a bunch of them then.

Hiya -

There is no HUGE FINE.

In fact, to start with, there's no penalty at all, although you can be issued a warning. After August 1st *2014* you can be ticketed for a petty misdemeanor for not having a sticker.

You can be ticketed and fined for not cleaning your boat/trailer, but not for not having the sticker.

You can get the stickers from a DMV or deputy registrar, some sporting goods stores, and soon, anywhere you get a license. You can also get them from a CO or at inspection sites.

This is nothing to hit the panic button over.

Has anyone ever noticed more rules for fishing than driving a vehicle. What next laminate and post entire fishing guide in boat. Yes, need to follow rules but to require posting on trailer and boat is over the top.

How about a sticker on driver side of car window. "No texting you $@#$#ing silly-me", now that would save lives!

for those that dont know by now, YOU DO NOT NEED ANY STICKER until after taking a online test in 2015 as it stands now. things can change at every session of the leglislature in the future so who knows if this current law will stand. good luck.
