      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 .

Opener date conflict - Again

Recommended Posts

marble-eye

Here we go again. Wisconsin Date for the opener - May 6. Minnesota - April 28. They told me last year that they would get this straightened out, and would talk to the neighbor to the west. Or was that the year before??? Typical DNR at its finest..

Wisconsin's Fishing Seasons: Walleye

List of Fish Species

Exceptions

Not all Wisconsin waters follow the fishing season dates for a species for general inland waters or boundary and outlying waters. Exceptions do exist! You must consult the special county regulations in the current hook and line or trout regulations guides, as appropriate, to determine if any special season dates exist for the particular waters you plan to fish. This is the only way to determine whether or not the waters you plan to fish follow the season dates for general inland or boundary and outlying waters listed below. Unless noted otherwise, the dates listed are for the hook and line harvest of fish, not catch and release. Dates are inclusive.

You must also consult the current fishing regulations for information concerning bag and minimum length limits for a species.

Waters Dates for Hook and Line Harvest

General Inland Waters First Saturday in May to the first Sunday in March of the following year

Fox River downstream from DePere Continuous

Boundary Waters Dates for Hook and Line Harvest

All other tributary streams & ditches to Green Bay upstream to the first dam or lake First Saturday in May to March 1

All other waters of Green Bay, major Green Bay tributaries, Lake Michigan tributaries Continuous

Lake Superior Continuous

Lake Superior tributaries First Saturday in May to March 1

Lake Winnebago System Waters Continuous

Mississippi River Continuous

I read the same stuff on the WI DNR website... that's why I called and spoke to someone in person. I was told the web stuff hasn't been updated since the final regs were put in place. The new booklets are ready but the PDF isn't on the website yet. She read the date of April 28th for the Croix opener right out of the book... disregard the outdated material on the web wink.gif

Us cheeseheads were out there last year. We just limited out too early, and had to go home. Thanks Newbe. Now I do not have to go through the process. Bet they are quickly changing the regs now.

We were out at sunrise and off the water by about 2:00 pm last year - didn't limit out but had a pretty darn good day; caught everything from walleye to sauger to gills to perch plus, of course, sheepies and a few cats... Stayed away from the community spots - Kinni narrows, Hudson channel, etc. - and really just spent the day boating and surveying...

      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
    • cookie129
      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early
    • ZachD
      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.
    • PRO-V
      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.
    • fish_hunt_guy
      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.
