      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 .

It’s nearly that time of year again. I’m pretty sure I’m going to grab the lifetime fishing license this season. That’s going to run $383, but worth it in the long run.

Other’s that relate to fishing that you might need

Angling, Individual (age 16 and older) - $17.00

Angling, Combination (husband and wife) - 25.00

Sports, Individual - 29.50

Sports, Combination (husband and wife)2 38.50

Trout and Salmon Stamp - 10.00

Fish House or Dark House - 11.50

Just a friendly reminder that our 2006 license expire in 14 days.

Does anybody when we can purchase our 07 licenses? Before March 1?

All 2007 angling licenses should be available for purchase on Sunday 2/18, maybe even by the end of this week.

The cost of a lifetime license varies by age

age 3 or under $227 (pays to get one early if you know they will live in MN their whole life)

age 4 - 15 $300

age 16 - 50 $383

age 51 and over $203

Another bonus to the lifetime license is they are valid even if you move out of MN. Resident or not, you'll never need to purchase the license again.

we just got the 07 download yesterday at work. so the 07s should be good to go. only problem is the reliabuility of the equipment. it always seems to malfunction when there is a line of peo0le that want to get new ones or customers that just want to check out athe other stuff they might have. please be patient, know that the operators are doing their best, and maybe plan ahead a bit. dont get there needing it yesterday. that said. thank you. ... paul

Well, today is the last day we can fish with out 06 licenses so I think I'm going to try to squeeze every cent out of it. Well, actually I already have my 07 license as well, but I haven't gotten enought from my 06 quite yet.

Remember if your going to fish tomorrow, you'll need your 07 license. Don't forget to grab your shack license and a trout stamp. Again, support our local baitshops when buying a license. They don't make very much on license sales, but every little bit helps. I got mine from Hooked on Fishing in Rochester.

Andy - Remind to to put my new 07 dark shelter tag on my shack tonight.

Not when I bought ours. They just asked me height, eye color, and weight. Be careful not to be wrong on the last one. blush.gif

She does not have to be there for the purchase but she will have to sign everything before you go out. Each person is required to have their own stamp weather it for trout, phesant, or ducks. Good point Dan, I always guess low on the weight too.

If you have her license from last year, they can use her DNR # form that license. That's all I did. Now all she has to do is sign it.

      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.
    • Naturboy
      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.

      Most coho being on Minnesota side are 12" - 17".   Occasional bigger fish.  Very few 3# pound fish.
    • iiccee63

      SM, Nice meeting you today! I am sure we will see each other again! We ended up catching 6 walleyes and 6 tulibees. Kept 3 walleyes from 14" to 19-3/4". We quit at 1:00pm also.
