      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 .

2006 Walleye

Recommended Posts

LakeTahoe

Just a reminder to all you fellow sportsmen and women.

Only ONE walleye over 20 inches this year state wide (on top of whatever slot is on your particular lake).

Oh! and it's 40 inches for Muskie this year too. (one Over 40 can be kept)

Good luck!

i thought the regs read that one over 20 if there are not already a special reg on the body of water. so if a lake has a slot of 18-22 then you could keep your limit over 20 inchs. did anyone else read it this way?

I think I agree with fish2live here. I havent heard of anything being put on top of our 2 eyes over 15" on the St.Louis. Better read the regs again I guess.

This is direct from the regs on Page 5

• Only one walleye over 20 inches now allowed in daily and possession

limits for inland waters (page 15). See also page 15.

Seems clear to me that it's regardless of any slot. Actually it goes hand in hand with many slots... for example on Leech it really doesn't change any thing where all walleye between 18 and 26 must be released, so still you can only keep one over 26.

I believe that there was a correction and that you can have 6 over 20 inches in posession as long as they were caught on different days.

Maybe this will help to clarify the question.

Fishing Regulations clarifications (2006-02-07)

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources issued the following clarifications for the 2006 Fishing Regulations handbook:

- Using whole or parts of game fish, goldfish or carp for bait is unlawful in Minnesota. Goldfish are incorrectly included in the definition of minnows on page 4.

-One walleye over 20 inches is allowed in a daily limit. More than one walleye over 20 inches is allowed in possession if the fish are caught on subsequent days. The information on page 5 is incorrect.

That's all that I can find on this one. Don't forget, though, local regulations on a particular lake, such as a slot limit of 17"-26" overrides the state length limits.

I really cannot see the big difference here, my personal slot is that all eyes over 20" go back. Generally these are the females, unless I end up with one thats over 30" for the wall. Catch Photo and Release Its the way of the future.

Hold on now... So when the slot on Mille Lacs opens up to 0 to 22 inches mid summer, you can only have one fish over 20 inches per person???

    • leech~~
      Can't make this one but looking forward to meeting up on the next. I may even try moving around to catch some like eyeguy, instead of enjoying a nice relaxing sit in my chair and talking!! I think I still have 17 cans of beer in my basement of the 18 can case I brought last year no one drank, I can bring again!!

      Anyone been around the western edge or north side of Pine with sled or atv?

      My dad fell thru Camp Lake just north of Shakopee last weekend.  Went from 6" to less then 1.5" in an area that typically never has issues.  Lots of abnormal freezing this year, there were still open pockets Sunday afternoon.   Haven't seen it freeze like this in years (at least on our lake.)  Don't go alone on lakes you're not familiar with.  Bring a spud.

      Now is the time to talk to kids about the dangers of thin ice. As temperatures continue to dip below freezing, ice is forming on many lakes, ponds and rivers. But conditions vary across the state.  Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Hannah Mishler has already responded to multiple ice rescue calls. “Ice, especially snow covered ice, is extremely deceptive. You can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” Mishler said. With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward the newly formed ice for entertainment. “Teach your children that ice is never 100 percent safe,” cautions Mishler. “If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” While adults and children are recreating outdoors, they should always take precautions around any body of water during the cold water season. Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator, advises in addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). When a child is near the ice, an adult should be near the child. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
