      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 .

Do we have a registration card for our vehicles ?

Recommended Posts

Valv

I've got pulled over in KS and asked insurance and registration cards.

I showed insurance and...told officer I didn't have the registration card for my truck and never had it, he believed me after showing valid insurance with vin # on it.

I have and had many vehicles in MN but never, ever had a registration card, does it exist ?

I believe it is part of the card that they send you to renew your license.

That is correct and in Minnesota we ARE required to have it with us in our vehicles.

Neiko is right. Part of your vehicle registration renewal form will say "Cab card" and it's to be kept in the vehicle. My youngest son got a ticket in AZ about 3 years ago for the same thing. The court dismissed the ticket upon showing prove of registration, the "Cab card".

Well problem is I don't have any vehicle older than 1 year, they are not new, just bought within this year, and all I had from DMV is a yellow paper with all the info, I guess I can put that in the glovebox.

I agree with above and yes, the yellow slip from the dmv is what you need to carry in the vehicle for the first year. Same goes for trailers as well.

There is also a registration card you tear off your title. It's small, but is labeled with all the info.

Yup, you need to carry it with you in your vehicle and produce it upon the request of Law Enforcement. The paper work you describe from the DMV would meet such requirements. I cant speak about all jurisdictions....but most only have a “fix-it-ticket” type of cite issued when you cant produce it. It basically says that you have X number of days to appear at court or the local PD to produce the registration....does not cost you anything...just time...unless the vehicle is really not registered. In most cases...this is the same for “No Proof of Insurance” cites as well.

Cliffy,

Does that apply to trailer registration even with the lifetime license?

Not quite true. Take a good look at the back of your receipt and it says "If your vehicle is taxed based on the gross weight of the vehicle, you must keep this card in the vehicle at all times". Vehicals 1 ton and over and trailers are taxed by weight.

To be honest, I just dont know. so far in my 10 year career, I have never found myself in a position to be asking about trailer regs. Sorry, I cant help you on that one...I am on my days off....I could do some digging when I return to work and post an update if no one finds an answer first.

I am not sure about trailers. Vehicles.. I believe its the bottom right portion ofthe title that is the vehicle registration, next to the sellers notice of sale part of the title.

As for boats, when you renew your registration, the part that doesnt stick to the boat is the registration.

It used to be that when you went to register your tabs, you got a tear off portion back from mndot registrar. Now all you get is the paper that you take to dmv to register and that is your registration to keep in car. If I remember right its blue and white.

I hope you're not tearing off that section of the title and keeping it in your vehicle or worse, keeping the whole title in your vehicle.

I always forget to put my insurance ID card in the vehicle, let alone the registration. Everytime I have been stopped the officer usually gets bored with me search and says nevermind I trust you (after I explained I would be happy to call my company while he waited). Some day I am sure I won't get as nice of an officer.

Good info though guys. I might have to dig up some sort of registration now...

I write about 15-20 "no proof of ins." cites per month....and about 1-3 end up not really having insurance. You would truely be amazed to see how many people are driving without insurance on their vehicles.

Has anyone else ever recieved a letter from the MN DMV where you have to provide proof of your insurance...either by snail mail or on-line? I guess MN went to a new system about a year or so ago...dont need to show insurance when you regs. a vehicle at the DMV...they just does a random audit by mail. I got one back in Feb...sort a neat idea.

Any thoughts?

Personally, I don't think one should be able to obtain his vehicle license without showing proof. We are required to carry liability insurance in Minnesota. Shouldn't we be able to substantiate it? The problem was that all you had to do was provide an insurance policy number but were they ever verified? Probably not as that would have cost a lot of time and money. What's worse is that we're more or less required to protect myself from those that do not have insurance. To me that is a crime in itself.

You were supposed to show an ins card when registering your vehicles. They had many cases where insurance was purchased, got card with 6 months/1 year expiration (but paid for 1 month) then dropped policy. Card still showed vehicle was insured, but there was actually no policy anymore.

Cliffy take note of this, but you probably know it.....I've guess you've seen all of the "tricks".

Actually this threas was aimed at your response as a Law Officer, I actually didn't know bout the card on title, I checked mine and....I already put it in my truck.

Thanks for the help guys....

      You know it’s a good day when you’re thumb looks like that from lipping the fish! What sizes are you getting right now, Rick?

      Recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) is anticipated to open on several Schedule I Lakes in the Grand Rapids fisheries work area beginning in late October, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule II Lakes, will open Nov. 3. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Anticipated opening dates are as follows: Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec.3, for Deer (near Deer River), and Turtle (3.5 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Side and South Sturgeon (1.75 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Big Balsam and Nashwauk (1.75 inch mesh). Schedule II Lakes Lakes open to whitefish and cisco sport netting Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10: Bass (north basin). Ball Club. Bowstring*. Little Bowstring. Cut Foot Sioux*. Deer (near Effie). Grave. Jessie. Maple. Pokegama. Round (near Squaw Lake –1.75 inch mesh). Rush Island. Sand (near Max)*. Swan.  (1.75 inch mesh) Twin Lakes (near Marble). Winnibigoshish* and Little Winnibigoshish* (1.75 inch mesh). *Bowstring, Cut Foot Sioux, Sand, Winnibigoshish and Little Winnibigoshish are designated infested waters because of the presence of faucet snails or zebra mussels. Nets and equipment used in infested waters may not be used in any other waterbody unless they have been dried for ten days or frozen for two days. Fishing regulations require that: Netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. A person may use only one gill net, not exceeding 100 feet in length and 3 feet in width. One end of net must have a pole, stake, or buoy projecting at least two feet above the surface of the water or ice. Nets must have an identification tag attached near the first float of the end that is projecting from the surface of the water or ice. Identification tags must be a minimum of 2 ½ inches by 5/8 inch permanently bearing the name and address of the owner. Identification tags for marking nets are provided by the owner. Nets may not be set after sunset or raised before sunrise. All gill nets must be set and lifted by the licensee only. Anyone assisting in the taking of whitefish or ciscoes must have proper licensing. Nets must be tended at least once every 24 hours and all gamefish and non-target species must be immediately released from the net. A net may not be set in any water deeper than six feet. A net may not be set within 50 feet of another net. Minimum gill net mesh size shall be no less than 1-3/4 or 3-1/2 inch stretch measure depending on the lake (see full list of lake and size regulations online). Nets used in designated infested waters must be dried for a minimum of 10 days or frozen for 2 days before using in a different water body. Nets should be dried for 10 days or frozen for 2 before moving from any lake to another. Nets used in spiny water flea and/or zebra mussel infested waters should be not used in any other waterbody Nets should be transported in sealed container. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be bought or sold. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be used as bait. Within the Leech Lake Reservation boundaries, the possession limit for whitefish taken by sport gill-netting is 25, and the possession limit for ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting is 50. Net placement should not inhibit use of the lake by other boaters. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Grand Rapids area office at 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or call 218-328-8836.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.

            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.
