      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 .

What does everyone think about the crossbow being legal during firearms season? I thought that would have hit a hot button with many folks. I feel as though it's one step closer to allow them during archery season which I wouldn't endorse.

Even though I can get a crossbow permit to hunt with one,Which I have considered I did'nt! I dont believe they should be legal during archery! However if it was included during muzzle or reg. rifle I would'nt be against it.

I like the crossbow thing. I hope they are made legal during archery season. I realize that's a touchy topic so I'll leave it at that. I also very much like the fact the language was cleaned up with the immediate release thing. Some of the regs are pretty tough to understand. I'm glad that chunk of grey area is gone.

Crossbow!!! Oooo. I was thinking of a shotgun for deer hunting this year, but looks like I might go crossbow!

No NV for wild animals. Does that mean no NV for pest control too?

Might be interesting to see how many civilized states permit hunting with a crossbow....or hunting with night vision equipment.

And gee...I haven't heard anything about a funding method for fish and game stuff either. Maybe I missed it. shocked.gif

You did'nt miss the funding they could'nt agree on it AGAIN it was said if a special session was called they'd continue hashing it over!! I watched it yesterday every suggestion was turned down by overwhelming NOs.

As long as out of season catch was accidental and not expected. Taking pic of 4th biggest out of season fish in a short period of time is still illegal in my opinion.

Its not illegal though, in your opinion you might not like the practice photographing out of season fish but your opinion doesn't make it illegal.

I am glad that they made the clarification, now we don't need to read any more bashing from people when someone posts a picture of a 5 lbs bass in early May. Those posts always got old.

Actually its more than opinion, bud. I was trying to be nice unlike your reply. Purseuing out of season fish is illegal. Photographing said fish mute point. If you reasonbly suspect your going to continue catching an out of season fish in one spot you are pursueing them. It sickens me when people "hide behind the crappie hook".

If I fish for one hour and unintentionally catch 4 bass and take pictures of them that is illegal? Does it matter that during that same hour in the same spot I also caught dozens of crappie or gills?

It is perfectly plausable that while anchored in one spot for an hour you'll be catching loads of crappie while catching a couple nice bass mixed in. Taking a quick picture of those 4 bass is not illegal or in my opinion unethical if you are truly not targeting them.

If all you are catching is bass then YES you should move to a new spot but if I am sitting on a school of crappie and 1 out of 10 fish is a bass then I am not going to feel that bad about it.

I agree... A few years back the wife and I were sitting on a school of Crappie, and I hooked a wall hanger Snot Rocket on a 1/64 ounce jig and 4lb line. Granted it took some time to get the beast in the boat with 4lb line, but a picture was difinatly taken. You can't tell me that if you catch a fish of a lifetime and you have a camera you wont snap a shot... Even though it wasn't the target, it still happend, and the fish was returned safely to the water.

Not really fishing related but kind of, why were night vision scopes banned in an attempted to stop inceasing technology, but lighted decoys for spearing are legal? Those seem like an increase over a hunk of wood or a minnow.

People need to remember common sense and also ethics when it comes to photographing a fish reguardless if the season is open or not for that particular species. The more you handle fish and the longer they are out of the water the higher the risk of mortality. Don't get me wrong I enjoy looking at photos of fish caught. I remember one time when fishing forest lake with my cousin and we didnt have a camera with and I caught a 40" inch muskie while jigging for walleyes withan 1/8 ounce jig tipped with a fathead minnow. Later that day my cousin caught a 16lb northern and again we had no camera. Everytime we fish together now we talk about that trip to forest lake and laugh. BOTH FISH WERE IMMEDIATELY RETURNED TO THE WATER.

I think it opens the door up (( well if I can photo it than why not fish for them.)) I don't mind if your fishing for panfish and catch the monster bass and photo it, but I think that people will see that as excuess to fish for out of season fish.

What if after getting EACH bass you move because you don't want to bother them, but each spot you hit a pig????? Also as for the post on how now that you can take pictures of them, that means folks will think it's okay to target them out of season......Seriously???? Just because I can go whale watching and take pictures.....doesn't mean I can hook Flipper on a circle hook and start targeting Orcas.

I think people will be targeting spawning fish , easy pickins, for the big ones, pike, musky, big walleye, just to take a picture. Then maybe be tempted to take it home also.

But if I was fishing sunnies and hooked into a monster, I sure would want a picture. As said comon sense needs to be used all year around, not just the open season. I can pick 10 lb walleyes out of a crick in late april, left and right. Should I be doing that? No! Since I can use the , I was trying to catch bullheads, and had to stop and keep taking these monter walleyes off my hook and take pictures of them.

Unfortunately, the problem with the whole common sense thing is that fewer and fewer people have it these days. frown.gif

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.
