      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 .

ATV Registration-Do I really need one?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have the unfortunate limitation of living in IL, and ice-fish in MN, WI and MI. Do I need to obtain an ATV registration for each state? The only thing I use my ATV for is fishing, from the trailer to the lake and back on the trailer. Do I need any special permits in MN? Thanks in advance for all the help.

i would think so.. as far as i know for your atv you only need a regular licence on the ice dont need anything special.

i think as long as its registered in Illinois you should be fine. Kind of like you dont have to switch license plates when you cross state lines each time? im not for sure though. Just my logic.

you don't need to register it in MN unless it's here for like 45 consecutive days. otherwise your IL registration is fine.

It is just like driving you car in MN. We take sleds to Canada and don't have to register them.You can travel from state to state in a boat as well, just as long as it is registered.

It's my understanding that in Illinois you don't have to register your ATV since the state does not provide riders with land for trail riding, but if you take your atv into Wisconsin I do believe you need a trail pass even for ice fishing, so your best bet is to get a Wisconsin trail pass(see Wi DNR site) and you should be covered in Mn also

I haven't ridden in WI, but is the trail pass the actual WI registration?

Also, if the state of Illinois doesn't have ATV registrations, I believe he would need to register the machine in MN.

Hello all,

Thanks much for the feedback on my topic. RSS and LEP7MM are correct, IL does not have registrations for ATVs. I called the WI DNR and they suggested that I register it in WI. It appears that as long as it is registered, no matter what state, I should be fine. Now i just need to flip a coin and figure out which state i should give my money to. Thanks again for the help!

I didn't clarify it well enough, but if I'm not mistaken, if your machine isn't registered in your home state and you come to MN, you must register the machine in MN.

The best way to find out is to call the MN DNR at 1-888-MINN-DNR.

Also I don't know if it went into effect yet but I believe they passed a law that will require non-residents to puyrchase a trail sticker like WI does. WI sticker is $38/year good from July 1st thru June 30th.

Off-highway vehicle registrations & fees

Registration procedures

NOTE: OHVs legally registered in another state or country, and not in Minnesota for more than 30 days, are NOT required to purchase a Minnesota registration. If your state does not require a registration, you will need a Minnesota registration.

    • What lens you use for the night sky pictures? I really like them.
    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. Stole a few ideas from some of you but hopefully no one gets too worked up over that. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out! Frame- 8X21' +4' V Valley Manufacturing galvanized hydraulic Walls/roof- 1x2" rectangular tubing Siding- Flat black aluminum held on with 3M adhesive tape Roof- 3/8" plywood covered with rubber membrane Floor- 3/4" marine grade plywood Insulation- Closed cell spray foam   One piece aluminum wheel wells.  1/4" cedar tongue and groove. At this point I was still undecided if I was going to stain it or not and sense I did end up staining it I should have just used pine. Looking back on it now it could have saved me a few bucks. The start of staining. I used Sherwin-Williams Pecan.
    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
    • Final 2 minutes of lastnight’s game was pretty exciting. I agree, it’s going to take several more games for the team to really come together. But winning those types of games will make it happen faster!
    • So late last ice fishing season I was looking at underwater camera's and thought I narrowed it down to either a Marcum VS825SD or the Aqua-Vu HD700i.   Now I see Aqua-vu has a new model out this year the HD7i Pro.   Does any know what the differences are between the HD700i and the HD7i Pro ?    Usually I don't like to buy first year products as I like to see them get all the bugs worked out first.
