      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 .

This is a recent topic here on the forum. What can WE DO, shiner2367 composed a petition and it was sent off not to long ago.

Google the subject and you'll come up with info.

I know there is something in the works right now. States are demanding something be done and the Feds are dragging their heels. One suggestion was to not let any Saltys into the system, this would be done with a transferring station. I don't know how cost effective this would be or whats entailed to get it up and running.

Focus is turning to, how do we stop it from spreading to inland lakes by disinfecting hulls, livewells and bait containers. Interesting how that'll work out.

so far it looks like michigan was the only one that got their act together enough to pass legislation:

though there may be issues with it's constitutionality:

Bills in Minnesota's House and Senate have stalled again (is anyone surprised?):

disappointing to say the least... frown.gif

Thanks Dead, I saw those as well. WI seems to be getting in on the act as well.....banning minnows from MN. I understand the thought process behind it, but seems like there are bigger fish to fry! I have not heard anything back from Oberstars office regarding the petition, but I will post as soon as I do.

Here's a link to check out as well:

      Good hearing from you, always enjoyed reading of you & Doc's adventures.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.

      Heading up to Beacon Harbor tomorrow for a couple days. Hopeful for decent weather and hungry fishes!

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      keep me posted I'm from ny and planning a trip in February

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
