      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 .

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..

I have to say I thought there were fewer boats with out the sconi guys last year-It was kinda nice

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

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...

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
