      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 .

Culling????

Recommended Posts

I have never fished in a tournament before but was considering it this year. After reading the rules I saw that they do not allow culling. Why is this? It would appear that culling would be the hardest form of cheating to detect. I don't believe culling would hurt the fishery any more than the tournament itself. I am not planning on cheating, I just think that there is probably alot of culling going on atready and would think that allowing it would put everyone on a more level playing field. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.....

It may be a restriction on the water you are fishing. There are some lakes that have no cull restrictions. As far as cheating, it may very well be happening. Anytime there is $$ involved the incentive to cheat for some is so tempting that they can not hold back.

here is an exerpt from the 2007 minnesota fishing regulations. I'm sure tournaments are not above the law.

"• Once a daily or possession limit of fish has been reached, no culling or

live-well sorting is allowed."

Page 10

my question is does this mean that you can sort and throw back before you have your limit?

You can cull up until you put your 6th fish in the box. So if you have 5 fish or less you can sort all you want. There are some lakes where the DNR will make it no cull for the tournament and you have to make decisions as soon as you catch the fish.

I have interviewed a DNR person on this issue. As long as you do not have your limmit of fish you are allowed to release a healthy life fish back into the water. So if we are talking bass or walleye in which the limit is 6 fish.. If you have 4 fish and catch a 5th and you want to throw back one of your smaller fish.. They DO NOT encourage that.. But It is not illegal.

BUT, if you have 5 fish, and you put a 6th fish in your live well.. YOU ARE DONE.. no more!.. kaput!!! yo umay not release a fish back into the water then.

if you have 5 in the tank and you catch your 6th fish and you want to keep that new bass. I would think you could still release it because it's not officially in your well. So technically your not at your daily limit yet... right?

WRONG! Once your limit is reached your done fishing. Once another fish is into your posession your OVER. If your holding it to unhook its IN your posession limit, net it and bring it into the boat, in your posession limit. If you do that with your limit in the livewell already then your over your limit = ticket.

To simply put it once your limit is reached your done! C ya, bye, gone!

as a member of a bassclub we have a 4-fish limit..even though we can cull legally, we as responsible sportsmen make the decision right away meaning if it goes in the well it stays there grin.gif..

Rememder there is always two people in the boat,thus leaving you another legal limit to choose from before you would have to cull. All it says is you can only bring X amount of fish to the scale, the rest u can take home and eat.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      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.
