      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 .

Just announced today, 05/04/2012, the law requiring boats to display the Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Rules decal has been repealed. This means that boaters no longer need the AIS decal on their boat.

Also means double the fines and an online course for weeds.

I was fine with my decal but now we will have to take an online course so we do not have to have the AIS decal. Not much if anything gained at all.

What a total waste of close to a million dollars for the AIS decals and now one can throw them away. The we will print up a new batch of AIS decals for the online requirments. This is now out of control.

+1. I had a problem with it from the start. I dont know how this law ever even looked good on paper. It is just so wrong in so many ways.

You will more than likely hate even more all the new laws that will take effect in the upcoming years. Any money says that when they realize noone is taking the online test, a fine will be added to get people to comply. It will only get worse.

Hmmmmmmm maybe they read all those posts that stated a sticker was a waste of time and would do nothing ?

Now we have a sticker and a test to pass in order to get the sticker.....

Gee maybe we need take tests in order to purchase a fishing or hunting license ? Laws change every year we should be required to pass a test to prove we understand the laws. Right ?

So while we are having to take tests in order to earn a sticker to place on our boat so we can fish after having paid all of the taxes and fees required by the state it makes me wonder why those who vote them in do not have to provide a form of I.D.

Sorry to vent but agreed more laws for the legal. They pay the illegal skate.

I agree and it is going to only get worse. Sad deal for all. They need to find a solution to kill off all the AIS and I am sure that is close to impossible without hurting the other species of fish in the lakes and rivers.

It is sure funny how quick the legis. can pass a law like this. They can not agree on anything else and have to go into extra sessions.

my understanding is that none of the resident fishing licence fees goes to the AIS program, but $5 of the non-resident licence does. the fees for the new licence fees dont go into effect till next year. good luck.

either way its a shame that it wasnt thought through better. This is a tough pill to swallow and bad PR like this certainly doesnt help.

What bugs me is all of our money spent to develop and initiate this, then print all the stickers and distribute them... madmadmad

What bugs me is they didnt learn anything from it, and are just going to do it all over again.

Those stickers were the biggest joke ever. I tried to get mine right away in March and they didn't have them yet. I called the DNR and sme crabby lady said they werent being enforced untill 2013, then my dad was at the courthouse a week ago (not sure for what) they had the decals and they said they would be enforcing them this summer, so he got some and I put them on 4 days ago. I put 2 on the trailer, and 1 on the back of the boat. Haha, and now afte all of this fuss they just go and repeal the whole law, are you kidding me! Serously people just take the plug out, check for weeds/mussels, don't go lake hopping, and drain them buckets, it is not that hard.
