      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 .

I've got too many beavers on a body of water I am trying to manage for waterfowl, and overall water levels. Is there any trappers in the area who would like to get a few more before the season ends (I think May 15??). I live near near Battle Lake. I have a boat to place traps in good spots smile.gif I want this population reduced!!

i was just looking on the internet the other day on managing beaver pond levels for waterfowl, as i noticed some beaver dam building on some of my dad's land

if you want to manage the water levels, they have many "beaver proof" water leveling devices you can make to maintain the water level you want. if i decide to do one of these things though i thought i would check with the dnr before to make sure on laws and such, or maybe even some better ideas

Those beaver proof levelers are interesting, but expensive and require excavation. More trouble, expense, and red tape than most people are willing to deal with.

Most of the beaver issues in my neck of the woods are more tree damage and erosion related. Flooding from plugged culverts is also high on the list. Running a close second is cave ins on roads and banks from old bank dens. I need a couple cubic yards to fix what has caved in on my own property.

Fighting beavers is a never ending battle. Every spring the two year olds get kicked out of the colony and have to find their own territory.

It is pretty easy to get a damage permit from a local CO. More often than not, my damage work is done with a rifle in conjunction with sumberged conibars.

I need another six or eight pelts tanned, and I will have enough for a beaver bedspread from damage work I have done.

Beaver are getting to be a real problem in this part of MN. When I was a kid people would point out a beaver and say "oh look a beaver". Now it's "there goes one of those #*&!* beaver".

      I checked a small lake in Arden Hills after work yesterday. Measured 3-4”. Should be ready for me to actually fish next time.
