      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 .

Cleaning fish on Red?

Recommended Posts

I am heading up to Red for the first time on Friday. (It's about time)

I have a question on cleaning fish on the lake.

Can you clean crappies on the lake?

Can you clean walleyes on the lake?

If you can not clean them on the lake do you just freeze them until you get home, thaw them, then clean them?

Or is there a slicker way to keep them fresher?

You can clean crappies on the lake, but you must keep the carcasses unfrozen and countable with you so the CO can verfiy your take.

You cannot clean walleyes on the lake or possess any walleye fillets from other lakes. They must remain unfrozen and flexible for measuring purposes. You may gut and gill them, but they have to remain with heads on. You cannot cook/eat walleye while on the lake.

I just keep all my fish in a bucket half filled with slush from cleaning out the holes. They can live for 2 days in that and I have 'fresh' fish to clean when I get home... I don't worry about cleaning them on the lake.

Good Luck!

I don't think the crappie carcuses need to be unfrozen, they just need to get a count of them. The reason for the walleyes being unfrozen is if they're frozen, the CO can't "pinch" the tail to get a true measurement.

You're right... I meant not frozen in one mass glob! That's why I said "and countable"... but poor sentence structure.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the info and the suggestions on the slush filled bucket with the fish, that has got to be better than thawing the frozen fish.

I hope we do well. I will post our report on Monday.

If I've just gotta eat fish while on the lake, it's gonna be smoked laker and/or pickled northern. smile.gif

Check-out page 10 in your reg. book, Possessing Fish. All fish for which the size restriction applies must have their heads, tails, fins, and skin intact and be measurable except when a watercraft is docked or moored to shore and the person is preparing the fish for that that night/days meal. quote-on-quote. So bring the boat pull it out on the ice near shore and tie it off to the closest tree then fry them up baby. grin.gif
