      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 .

Anyone know of a place where fishing openers are listed out by each individual state?

Considering plenty of states have no closed seasons, or complicated seasons.. no.

I too know of no website that has that information.. As far as I know there are only a hand full of states that have closed season, all along the Canada border. Im sure some states have a closed season for trout or such though.. then again, maybe not.

With 140+ views; if 1/2 of the views would pick a separate state and search the Internet we would all have are answer.

WOW could be a new fishing book which would include:

1. Opening dates

2. Boating regulations (AIS decals / drain plugs)

3. Etc.

Here are the links to the general fishing page (or whatever I could find that was similar) for all 50 states. Some states are as strict as MN, most are more lenient and allow fishing year round, and most pay far less in user fees than we do to fish. That said, for my buck, I'll take our state and the excellent fishing here to be a sign that our conservation is working. And you're welcome...this took a long time smile

Most states don't have 4.7 BILLION dollar fishing industry with 40,000 connected jobs that they need to manage.

Very good point to take into consideration. Comparing a state with 10,000 lakes to a state with <100 lakes is comparing apples to oranges. Funny and ironic how people still like to make the comparisons tho.

The MN page(s) in this book will have to be hot-swappable since the regs change on almost a daily basis depending on which way the wind is blowing. smirk

      As far as I know, never been there.  I know it's great for splake, browns and lakers.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
