      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 .

Lida and DNR oops!@$#!@

I have an interesting question. I have a trailer on Lida and when I was at the RRV Sportsman show this last weekend, I saw something that I thought was interesting. The MN DNR was there with a booth. As I was passing, I saw Lake Lida on an 8.5" X 11" word document. I read it and it was about the slot on Lida for walleyes and crapppies. the DNR said that, "This information was mistakenly left out of the regulations this year, and we want to be sure to get it out!" Hmmmmmmmmm.... can they really enforce the slot when it is not posted in the official regulations? I will obviously fish within the slot limits because I know, but they cannot possibly enforce the slot on Lida this year can they?

I think it would open up a pretty big defense if an individual was cited for the violation. Dont they have those info signs at all the boat landings informing people of the slot?

I don't recall seeing them (but I may be wrong). I know I was unaware of the slot for about two weeks last year when we first started fishing the lake (but with my attention to detail, I am sure it is posted at the landing).

anylakeanytime,

I think your correct but I'm not the one with the facts. But here is some info I'm not sure everybody knows about. Reflectors on perminent fish houses are encouraged may even be in writting in regs book but can not be enforced. My father-n-law got a ticket the other day for not having his license number on his house, his bad. But the CO went on because my FNL new him and stated that CO's can not ticket or enforce houses without reflectors. Glitch in the law I assume. Go figure!?

I thought there were signs...but to be honest...my attention to detail isnt the best....my family lives on Lida and I only use the boat launch a few times a year...but I thought I remember seeing one. If there was not signs...I bet this mistake might prompt them to put up a few reminders.

My 2 cents-- reflectors are for safety reasons...having them is called good common sense, not having them is reckless, think about it. I believe I have read something in the regs, I guess whether they can enforce it is not relevant to me, I hope the next guy cares enough about his property as well as mine to have reflectors!

You'll have no case and will be issued a ticketed the Regulation booklet means nothing.

What would make you say someone would not have a case (again I would never keep fish in the slot) but if some legitimate first-timer to the lake kept fish in the slot, why would they not have a case? And I am not trying to start an argument, I was just wondering if you know this would happen based on something you experienced or read somewhere...etc. If it is not posted at the accesses or in the regulations book, I would definitely not say that they wouldn't have a case.

Lida has had a slot on crappies for at least four years if not longer and on wallyeyes for two. I'm about 99% sure it's posted right at the access. I know that it was it the regs I got last year, and would almost swear I remember reading it again this year, but I can't be sure becuase my regs are in my fish house.

If they don't presently have a sign at the access, I'm sure they will put one there due to the mistake of not listing the reg. Most lakes with special regs have them listed at the access, but not all. If they don't give them a call, I'm sure they would put one up.

I think I saw a sign as well -- didn't pay much attention to the sign, however. I had heard about the slot before.

Not the crappie slot.

Thanks for the conversation (and for checking out for the signs). I just thought it was interesting little issue that people may have different knowledge and opinions about.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
