      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 .

Thats good just wanted to know because a friend needs a loan for a license. Though all in all not that bad of a price with the hike. Last month I was out in cali and NV visting family and friends and was sticker shocked at the prices now. Ca 1 day was $16$ And 120.00 for a year non res. , $44.00 yearly res. I usualy get the yearly out there but my ca id exp. had to renew for next 5 years of visiting. No U would not have to file Bank rupt unless u have fished the way i have in the past ten years. example in a year. Buy your res lec.for mn going to TX so much on job get a yearly non res. lic. , visit Cali 2 to 3 times a year buying yearly , getting a few days of in FL. and the getting 1 to 3 day lic.s in MA, MI,WI,AR,LA.MT,GA,MS,NY,PA,SC,AZ,NV,KS,NE,ND,SD,CO,WA,AL.WV,TN,IL,OK,UT, Not all but many in same year and rest in the next or so. and the rest. But for those of U who are worrying about B.R. or a a lack of cents, heres a little something most MN anglers dont know<< > If your Not Big on eating or showing Off a lot of fish U dont need to pay full price for a yearly license. I do anyway but may change that. I love to fish but not eat that many so CPR for me. I forget what its called but my GF gets 1 every year. Where we pay 18.00 she pays 12.00$ The 18 means u can keep the full limit, an 12.00 a half limit. So for those in hard times there it is. This year I will only need MN an ND lic.s Goin to the Oil Patch crygrin2ccool

I'm guessing it will be next year since they haven't announced it yet for this year and not enough time to change it now.

Btw I was being sarcastic about the bankruptcy smile. Just poking fun at the people up in arms about a license increase of a few bucks

This hasn't passed into law yet. The bill originally was rolled into the Omnibus game and fish bill, but the license fees increases were removed. The Senate just passed an amended version of the bill that includes the license fee increases, so now this has to go back to the House and they have to vote on the changed bill. If it passes the house, and the governor signs it, the license fees portion will go into effect March 1, 2013.

I agree. It is going toward the DNR and to help stocking programs, etc. I would easily pay $25.00 for a full year.

Thanks for the update. I am all for an increase.

See the IAS thread about the current bill to take $500,000 out of the DNR into the general fund. At least it's earmarked for IAS funding.

It's always a shell game.

The lottery proceeds? Pfft, gone.

The LOH fund, still there but they defund the DNR to offset the increases from the LOH fund.

The license increase, gone before it hit the books. crazy

      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.
    • Naturboy
      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.

      Most coho being on Minnesota side are 12" - 17".   Occasional bigger fish.  Very few 3# pound fish.
    • iiccee63

      SM, Nice meeting you today! I am sure we will see each other again! We ended up catching 6 walleyes and 6 tulibees. Kept 3 walleyes from 14" to 19-3/4". We quit at 1:00pm also.
