      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 .

Been looking for cast nets, but they're hard to find. Any place where I can find them at?

Is it illegal on the St. Croix? I saw some guys using one last week...

Not only is a cast net illegal on the St Croix but it is illegal to harvest bait from the St Croix.

Page 15 2009 Minnesota fishing Regulations:

Invasive Species Laws

- It is unlawful to: harvest bait (minnows, frogs, crayfish or other wild animals) from infested waters.

The St Croix is infested with zebra mussels and as such is off limits for harvesting bait.

I wonder if a Wisconsin angler could get by with a cast-net on the Croix if he was intending on using the bait in the Croix? I think you can dip-net your own bait in the Croix and use it while fishing can't you?

Cast-Nets are legal to harvest bait in other non-infested Wisconsin Waters correct?

I haven't reviewed the Wisconsing regs for a couple of years so I am not totally sure. I know a few years ago a Wisconsin resident licensed angler could harvest bait on the St Croix with a cast net. The last couple of years Wisconsin tightened their bait harvest and bait transport rules because of the Hemorragic Virus and they were even tighter about bait than Minnesota. The bait harvest rules in WI are pretty tight now so before harvesting bait there I would recommend reviewing their bait regulations.
