      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 .

Fishing/camping in other states--licensing??

Recommended Posts

Guest

Fishgirl is going on vacation.
Fishgirl likes to drive many miles through many states, stopping wherever.
Fishgirl sometimes finds cool campspots in the middle of nowhere near a stream.
Fishgirl wants to fish, but Fishgirl has only a MN license.
Fishgirl cannot reliably predict what state and what time of day/day of week the urge/opportunity may come.

--What can Fishgirl do?

Thanks!!!!

Fishgirl,
I've had the opportunity to take several trips like the one you desribe -- at one point I was on the road for four months. Much like Minnesota, most states offer temporary licenses that can serve your purposes. Depending on the state, licenses are usually good from 24-72 hours and can be purchased for less than $10-15 in most states. Have fun and send us some reports from the road smile.gif

Hey fishgirl, are ya single? ;D

But seriously, have fun. I know that Montana offers temporary licenses rather cheaply -- I did that a couple of summers ago (which also led to me refusing to believe that "trout" exist...).

well, if you come to FL, send an email to let me know you are in the area and after you buy a temporary license i'll introduce you to some GREAT bass fishing.

I've always thought a forum like this could help us wandering fisherpersons find a local who'd enjoy teaching us the local waters. I'll be in Detroit Lakes and Ely areas this summer. Hooking up with guides to show me around but most people don't want to spend that kind of money.

This sounds great--but what sorts of places sell these sorts of licenses? I ask because again, I may stop in the middle of nowhere on a Sunday, and there may not be a store nearby and all...makes it sort of tough.

Thanks!

As much as I hate myself for uttering this word: Walmarts often have sporting goods departments that sell licenses.

Sounds kinda like you've never been on one of these willy-nilly fishing road trips before. smile.gif

Small towns are shut down on Sundays. Stop at the local corner convenience store and ask where a person can get a fishing license.

Here's a trip for you: drive down 169 to I-90. Go west, past the corn and bean fields until you hit the Missouri River. Stop and fish. Drive west farther. Pull off the interstate and drive down a gravel road. Pull into a ranch house and stop and ask if they have any bass dams on their land. Ask permission. Fish.

Drive west to the Black Hills and fish for trout and/or bass.

Drive north to 212 and turn right. Go to ranch house. Repeat. Go to Missouri River. Repeat. Go to the Glacial Lakes Region and fish again.

Drive home.

That should take you 7-10 days if you dawdle...6 if you don't.

Good luck and take pictures.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.
