      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 have heard it both ways and have been looking on the DNR page can seem to find it spelled out. I have an archery license and a 2A firearms. I screwed up and didn't buy the all season. Can I still buy the ML liscence or do I have to wait till next year? I still havn't shot a buck. Thanks

You can upgrade your license to an all-season I think, but you can not buy both a firearms license and a muzzleloader license. Call the DNR, they can confirm this.

I think lawdog has it right. It looks like in order for you go on a muzzleloader hunt, you will need to ugrade to the all-season license first.

Nope, you cannot buy a muzzleloader license since you already got the regular firearm license. You'll need the all-season license to hunt in regular firearm and muzzleloader season. I think it's too late to upgrade now. They only let you do that when the firearm season hasn't start yet.

I guess You'll have to wait until next year

My mistake, I think you can upgrade it to the all season license if you didn't use any of the tags (archery & firearm) yet. Anyway here's what it says in the regulation handbook:

Upgrading/Changing Firearms Deer Licenses

A person who has purchased a deer license and wishes to change

a zone, license type, or season options may submit their original

license and obtain a replacement license. There is a fee of $5 (plus a

75¢ issuing fee) for the replacement license, plus any increase in cost

for the new license. Replacement licenses are available from any ELS

license agent. If a person submits both an archery and firearms license

for replacement with an all season license, the value of both original

licenses may be applied. Any replacement license may be issued before

the season for the original license opens. A person may upgrade an

archery or regular firearms license (or both) to a multi-zone buck

license or all season license after the original season has opened, if

none of the original tags have been used. The upgraded license is valid

immediately upon issue.

As long as you haven't tagged a deer you should be able to upgrade. A friend of mine upgraded his license to the allseason the thursday before 2nd weekend of slug.

There is one WMA by Rosemount that is open. I just got done doing a check on the DNR website and it is the only one that is legal to use slugs on.

So why bother having a Metro firearms zone when there is only one area that is allowed?

Guess I will see you down there.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.

      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!

      Hi, I am selling my 2012 Polaris Ranger 800 XP camo. Very low miles, 1200. Full hard cab, flip out glass windshield, windshield wiper, almost like new still. Great for ice fishing, hunting and work around the house.  I also have this ad on C.L.  10,000 b/0 text me for pics, thanks.  I am located in west metro 763-two34-0837

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?
