      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 .

small rivers

Recommended Posts

are there any tresspass laws to be aware of for accessing small rivers that run through private land I am under the assumption if water passes a under or within a feet of a roadway it is accessable and as long as your a certain amount of feet from the surface of the water while hunting .

Not as long as you access from a road right of way or public access and keep both feet in the water or stay in the boat. ( As far as I know )

dont own a canoe or drift type boat, but if I did it'd be lights out for the green heads. Just curiuos if you could walk down stream and set up a few deeks and be legal if sitting on the bank.

Water surface is public domain in MN. So if you are floating on or standing on the froozen water surface you are OK. If the stream runs through private land and If your feet are on the bottom you are probably standing on private land. I would ask for permission but that is just me. I don't enjoy my hunt if I am not completedly sure that I am in the right

Everything under the water is public as long as you got there without crossing private lands. Also, I think anything under the normal water line is public too. Bang em up

I'm not sure about everything under the water being public. If it were me I would ask the local C.O. They would be the one dealing with you.

Yea I know of a lake in sherburne county that under the water isnt puplic and they even closed what they used to call the puplic access. rivers are most likely differnt than that but the safest bet would be to contact the local CO and ask him/her about it.
